If you've never built a Cloud Dancer, you should quit fooling around and build one. This week's special is a laser cut short kit of the Cloud Dancer 40. It has a 60 inch wing span, and a 40 FP will give it all the performance it needs.
You get the wing ribs, wing tips, fuselage sides, doublers, fuselage formers, and nose ring.
$35 plus shipping until next Friday. Shipping is $13 in the continental USA
I am hoping that the wind will lighten up enough to maiden my new sport Cub S. The conditions were absolutely perfect for flying this morning, but ofcourse because I to go to work. My daughter and I had one of these birds previously but while my daughter was flying it , the wind picked up drastically and carried it to who knows where. But we are back in business now.
Hobbyshop calls today says we have your new plane been here over a month. But I have picked up parts 2 times this month. They asked if I asked for the plane and I said no. So I went and picked it up.
took a few pictures and tryed a little back yard flying. It flew right out my hand no dive for the ground. Once up a little seemed like it was going to fly forever. It was a lttle windy but it did good. Talk about easy I did no tricks just flying and not real fast just around the field getting much higher than my normal flight. I bind it with my Dx5 radio so I can get it up without getting to far for the radio.
I bought an upgraded Detrum motor for my Corsair and of course the prop nut that came with the Corsair didn't work on the prop shaft I bought with the ugpraded motor (thanks for that one Dynam). While trying to force the issue--and without the proper tools (tap and die would have done it)--I managed to cross thread the nut and one of the two prop shafts.
So....while whining about it to a buddy of mine, he told me to come over and he'd make a few new ones for me. While I obviously knew about the existence of this type of machinery, I'd never seen it up close or in action. I was fascinated and just a "tad" envious my friend had access to such awesome tools.
Anyway, I put together a little video showing how he went about transforming a few lengths of aluminum stock into spares for my Dynam Warbirds. The best part is he has these "programs" saved in his mill/lathe computers and can punch out more parts anytime. While this isn't a plane review or flight video it is related to manufacturing RC parts. I just thought the process was super cool and wanted to share. Hope you like it.
The airfoils for the XB35 were NACA 65,3-019 at the root and 65,3-018 at the tip. These are quite thick and draggy and close to symmetrical requiring up trim in practice. So in my case I may deviate a little and use some MH62 cores already cut or maybe cut some MH45 cores at around 9-10%. I intend using drag rudders and elevons only.
Scaled to 2.4M span to cut from a 1.2M wide foam slab which is manageable. I will probably borrow the 4 ancient Turnigy 2213/20 motors with 3 blade 8x6 props from my Lancaster. With the 3S 4900mAh pack it should have an AUW of around 2.0Kg.
I could also raid the Lancaster's retracts in which case AUW would be around 2.5Kg. Initially it will be minimalist and hand launched .
