RCFS#76: Schwing - New Prop and Battery in LOTS of WIND

RCFS#76: Schwing - New Prop and Battery in LOTS of WIND (2 min 6 sec)


Episode 76 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

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!

RCFS#66: Learning to Slope Soar on BMI Flight Simulator

RCFS#66: Learning to Slope Soar on BMI Flight Simulator (2 min 23 sec)


Episode 66 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

BMI Flight Simulator can be found and downloaded for FREE here:

http://rcdeskpilot.com/bmi/

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!

RCFS#64: TONS of New Upgrades on the Schwing! (4 min 33 sec)


Episode 64 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

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!
