finally got the edge 540 epp set up properly with the right CoG and a powerful enough motor (I rewound an old HXT 24g 1300kv with 12 turns of 23 gauge wire) ... She will hover at 1 click above half throttle and has plenty of power to climb! now I just have to wait for the weather to get back in its right mind and I can fly!
Here's a jumping video I made of my Traxxas mini e revo... And yes, I know the first car is a rustler. Anyway, If you like it, check out my channel for tons of other cool rc car videos including some first person view ones! Thanks for watching and Subscribe!
I thought I'd just make a very brief post about how I do control horns. What you need to make these are dental floss picks, a needle-like exacto knife, a dremel tool with cutoff wheel (or something else to cut the floss picks), a sander (optional to make a nice finished look) and a lighter.
1. Cut the floss pick to the desired shape (see pic below) and sand the end to make a nice rounded shape
2. Create a hole for the z-bend or dubro connector
Use a pointy needle-like exacto knife (see pic below) and heat up the tip with the lighter for ~10 seconds. Then, push it through the control horn where you want the control rod to connect
Use a regular exacto knife to clean up the plastic that mushrooms up around the edge
And that's how you make some simple control horns! Hope it's helpful to someone!
So, my trojan is completely covered and is waiting for some paint! and then it's going on display! We'll see how the painting goes b/c I've never painted tissue before, but I can always re cover it! I'm testing the paint on the stabilizer first.
Got my first sheet of EPP ever. It was not what I expected it to look like, but I will see how it goes. It is really expensive! Anyway, I am building Leadfeather's Edge 540T out of 10mm EPP instead of 9mm because that's all my hobbyshop had.
I was the lucky recipient of a castle phoenix 35 from anixs, and here it is! For those of you doubting his legitimacy, he is awesome and gave me a 35 A esc when the ad was for a 25 A one. Thanks anixs!
