I'm sure many of us have received crazy emails from Chinese sellers. The emails were obviously written in Chinese then (poorly) translated to Engish.

Some translations leave you frustrated while some are funny.

The word 干 has several different meanings: "dry", "do" and "do someone". Strangely, translation software have picked "do someone" for most of the translation of 干:

Our annual Fun Fly to benefit Porter Leath Children's Home will be held October 24th at our field on Inglewood Place. In lieu of the $15.00 landing fee, bring a new, unwrapped toy of equal or greater value for the kids at Porter Leath.

Many thanks to all of those that supported us in the past.

Starting to explore investment casting to get more detail out of my parts. With that in mind, started to design some fully scale parts - In this case 6th scale He-111 parts ("scaled up" some of the machined parts too)

I built a FPV Tek Sumo that doubles as a slope soaring ship. Normally you would use a 2200mah 3s lipo with this bird but I shifted my esc, GPS, controller board and pan servo to the nose so I could use the lighter weight 1800mah battery and still have CG with the heavy over-powered motor I put on the tail.

I set everything up so when I fly FPV my vtx, camera, receiver, tracker, are all velcroed to the top up there unfortunately creating drag but easily removable so when I want to slope soar I just unvelcro everything and the plane is fairly light-weight and just has velcro as drag, so slips through the air quite respectably.

Everything is laminated with the stuff that Aloft hobbies sells, but as you can see it's all bubbled up from getting sunbaked.
laminate helps:
1) makes it so you can crash harder and it holds all the chunks together
2) improves the performance of the plane

I tuck a 1.8ah battery into a nice little compartment for slope soaring or high energy close to the ground FPV. I use a micro 5.8 video tx when doing high energy stuff but switch to the significantly heavier 1.3hz vtx for long range. I use a massive 3s 5.2ah multistar battery but I actually like the way the plane flies under so much weight. The plane doesn't get bounced around by the wind when it's weighty and I find that I like to fly fast, which is necessary with the extra weight....Continue Reading

When you spend as many years in this sport as some of us have there is bound to be a day where you just wish the clock could go backwards. Golf has Mulligan's but soaring needs to have a Do Over. This picture of my good friend Larry Jolly sums up what a hard day looks like. I can really relate.

Yesterday Harry and I tried out my latest IOM 'A' suit sails. They appeared to fall into shape very easy with minimum fuss so that was a good start. Whilst racing the wind was quite light and coming from all over the shop. Harry had the first trial and at times went very well but being fairly new to the sport he found it tricky keeping a distance between himself and the other seven competitors. After the halftime break we swopped boats and I went on to win the following four races which was quite satisfying. The next major test will be when Harry races the 7Bor and 'mk' sails at the Woodspring's, IOM, SW District Event on November 1st.
I have also fitted the fin/mast case into the Voltage hull. I hope to really press on with this project over the next couple of weeks so I can knock out a couple of new, identical IOM's over the Winter months in readiness for next season.

Right now, this looks a little silly.
At the rate cell phone sizes are increasing, it might not be silly for long...
Remember the Motorola brick?

Uuuh, had a bad weekend.

I travelled to Jmi to fly my Pilot Yak-54 (87") before winter hits really bad. Had a nice, but cold day, but then just before landing during the last (sixth) flight I became a passenger on my Yak. Plane was flying at 8-10m height maybe 60m away from me, when the plane snap rolled and continued to rotate... Until it hit the ground head on. I didn't have any control on the plane.

I've setup fail safe to do a positive snap roll - this way you'll take the speed away and basically plane will just drop in it's place, which is kind of safe. And to me it looked like the fail safe just activated.

Well... The motor mount / nose is totally crushed - let's see if Pilot will make wood parts to me, which would mean second life to this plane. To make things worse also the DA-50 motor is broken - haven't disassembled it yet to really see how badly.

But the most frustrating part is that I don't have a clue what really happened. Plane is fitted with Spektrum AR9110 receiver with 3 satellites, all positioned just as Spektrum instructs, Powerbox Sensor is supplying 6v to the receiver from two 2200mAh 2S lipos - which both had plenty of power left. And there was only one other guy flying / preparing his equipment during the incident.

And of course radios worked just fine after the incident...

Really frustrating, I haven't had a single problem with these radios so far (I'm using DX9 as transmitter)... Why it had to happen with the most expensive plane I have??!!?

All ideas are welcome: What should I do with the receiver to determine if it's ok or not?!
