Take some time to work with the aileron differential feature in your radio. Typically for an airplane with the wing placement like the Extra you will end up with just a little more up aileron than down for truly axial rolls. Test this by taking the airplane up high and overhead and place it in a power off down line. Give full aileron input and observe the roll carefully. If you see any "corkscrew" adjust your aileron differential to eliminate this.
One thing that is very important is to make sure the airplane is not pulling out or tucking under in a power off downline. This will typically require a 1% down elevator to low throttle mix in the Extra when the CG is correct. Do this mix first because if the airplane is pulling out or tucking it will be very difficult to get it to roll axially.

In my opinion (for what it's worth) and experience, the essential "dialing in" procedures are first getting the correct CG, setting up your downline mix, adjusting aileron differential, rudder to elevator mix, and rudder to aileron mix. You can certainly take it much further than this, but if you will take the time to do these few procedures you will be amazed at how much better your aircraft will fly. It really only takes a few flights to do this and I always encourage folks to take the time and learn this procedure. After you've done it a few times it becomes very easy. Once you've set it up for one model you can simply copy your setup for the next model and you will only have to make some small tweaks in the mix percentages.

One more thing, you really need a calm day to set up these mixes as the wind will make it very difficult to do this accurately.

When you have boxes and boxes of parts from crashed planes, you build a Frankenplane!

I need parts of walkera V18G01 or HM83. If some one has this heli and want to sell it also tell me.Thanks

I ve walkera v18g01 heli and I configure it correctly but when I push cyclic forward but when I give cyclic zero it still foes forward i-e it cannot come back to stability. Similarly with backward ,left and right .

To All FPV Fanatics,

FPV PROPAN Pan-Tilt System

Introducing our first FPV product – The PROPAN. The propan was designed to mount in front of small to medium sized FPV aircraft. Although it can be mounted on much larger aircraft with no problem. This system was specifically designed with input from professional FPV enthusiasts. Often too many times pan-tilt systems are built too heavy, poorly designed and configuration effecting the center of gravity of on board equipment, causing failure upon a hard landing; damaging servo gears, damaging the pan-tilt entirely and damage to your camera equipment. Although we understand, hard landings and crashes are sometimes in-evident, the PROPAN can help mitigate these issues and still have the luxury of enjoying a 360 pan view. By designing the PROPAN, we know you will enjoy the hobby of FPV.

Visit our site for more detailed information. Register on our site to stay informed on final release date. Currently July time frame. Price is currently being negotiated.

Hello All,

I just put together the first part of my HJ 450 build and I just had to share it with someone. Feel free to comment if you want, I'm open to help and suggestions as this if my first scratch build. My wife doesn't really have math science mind so when I'm staring at the wall and i break the silence with "AHH HAA, I finally figured it out, what I'm going to do is get two server power supplies and float the DC ground and then daisy chain them together so I'll have 24v with 90a to be able to charge my 3s batteries in 15 mins,. What she hears is "AHH HAA, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XX, batteries in 15 mins." Which is what happens yesterday while we were at a wedding. So I share with you, the people who get it.

The goal is to build a 450 quad capable of 15 min flight times for general flying fun with the future FPV Add ons. So far I have my motors props and frame. Still have a long way to go. The pictures are not much to look at yet but I'm having fun. Thank for letting me share.

Current specs.

Here is how mine is set up on my DLE 35 RA

Pinion: Rhino 12T .6 pitch 5mm shaft pinion gear was used "T-Rex 500 pinion". The pinion is long and it will not fit through EME starter bracket because it is bigger on one end. The pinion is wider at the set screw. I drilled the hold in the starter frame a couple drill sizes bigger but that probably was not needed to be done.

Turnigy 3548/1100 KV motor. This motor was over kill but it should work for the bigger engines too. I had to reverse the motor 5mm shaft and add a couple of flat spots for the set screws. I am not using a c-clip on the motor shaft. I am using a couple of brass washers for shims between the pinion and motor to take up the slack. That way the motor does not walk forward and back.

Spacer adapter: I had a spacer made for the motor. The motor has a 5mm shaft with a bolt pattern of 25 and 19. I used the 19mm pattern to bolt the motor to the EME starter frame. I used the other two bolt holes to mount the spacer to the motor with countersunk screws. Spacer thickness with my calipers was .310" but I could have it at .300" if I wanted to make the pinion stick out over the idle gear a bit farther.

After building this I had a thought I could have added a longer shaft to the motor and bolted the motor to the frame with out a spacer. But the pinion I choose is hard and not drilled all the way through at 5mm. So the pinion would not just slide on backwards for a easy installation. I will look for another pinion that is drilled all the way for my next build and see if it will work.

Hello everybody. I've finally treated myself to a 1/16 Tiger Tank (Heng Long)! I bought a cheap used one which I've now decided to keep for spares as I think a metal tracked one will be much better. I am thinking of getting a new Heng Long 'Pro version' Tiger 1 with metal tracks and gearbox with sound and smoke which I can get for about £110. I like the stock grey they come in (like on Kellys Heroes film) and the Tamiya ones with the weathered paint jobs are too expensive for me. Anybody out there got one of these and if so what do you think of it?

Hi, looking for a bit of help please. I recently purchased a DM007 Quad after reading and watching many reviews. I have received Quad and flown once. Battery will not charge, Only green light comes on on charger. Contacted banggood and they are sending me a new battery. Have since bought another battery which came charged and flew quad once. Same problem, mains charger will not charge it. Have bought USB charger and this still will not charge any of the batteries (should it?) If anyone can advise I would Appreciate it as am dying to fly this quad!!

Second Maiden of the SkyHunter. If you scroll down my blog you will see the first attempt where I lost comms and nearly lost the plane.

This time went much better. I fast forwarded through the autotune and a long loiter to shorten the video.

I finally got the E-Flite Nieuport 17 250 Slow Fly in the air today. I tried to fly it the other day and the motor came out of the Carbon Fiber tube it was glued in. I used CA glue and the instructions said to use RTV Silicone. I should have followed the instructions because I never did find the motor. I have several extra motors (T2211-2300) so I installed another one using the correct glue.

Charged up a couple of new batteries and went off to the park. At first the trim was off. I had to add several clicks of up elevator and 6 to 8 clicks of right (Port) trim. She does not turn to the right (Port) very well. I have to put full right in her to get her to go right? I'll have to look into that.

But after the corrections she flies great. Very slow and gentle. A great plane to a day with NO wind!

Third maiden flight:

i am currently flying the Dromida Ominus and can fly it well and would like to start flying FPV but i dont know what quad i should get, i have been looking at the BlackOut H-quad but was wondering if someone can help me out and tell me if this is a good quad for a somewhat beginner like me or will it be to hard to fly?
