The Schwing has a new propeller (8x4 sport instead of 8x3.8 slow-fly) and a new battery generously donated to the RCFS by baddb1 on RC Groups, who also gave me the motor and ESC for the Schwing. So the Schwing is really half his, LOL!
Flies great but the wind certainly was messing things up. No crashes on this flight though!
Lots of stuff going on in the RC Foam Show workshop and DJO Productions studio lately! I'm certainly looking forward to receiving the Hercules and then building a 3DHS model in the future when I get the money to!
My edit from most of the footage that I got in South Dakota from last week while on vacation! Enjoy! NO video stabilization used in the clips for this edit, it's basically all raw footage! I'm learning to hold the camera steady.
I just found three pretty decent slopes in my area. I quickly converted my Schwing back to a slope soarer (the battery for the motor/ESC is LOST in the woods!). I got it stuck in a tree, got the plane out but can't find that battery, so I have to use the 2S RX pack with BEC and I can't use that with the motor/ESC so I made it a slope soarer again. And I may try out those two slopes that I mentioned!
I've been working on the Schwing today a lot and it looks GREAT! Much sleeker and a simpler, cleaner layout for the electronics. The old prop was an 8x3.8 slow fly, this new prop that I originally got for the Tuff Trainer is an 8x4 (not slow-fly), so it should work a bit better! Thanks for subscribing!
The Schwing flies great, fast, and is LOUD with a 3S battery pack and the 8x3.8 propeller that I installed! Make sure that you watch until the end for a catch and high speed pass to see how loud this thing really is! Thanks for subscribing!
Here I teach you how to set throttle endpoints for your R/C plane model... and also show you hot NOT to solder. Make sure to watch until the end. Thanks for watching and please subscribe if you haven't already!
