RCFS#12: Cardboard DLG Design!

RCFS#12: Cardboard DLG Design! (1 min 21 sec)


Episode 12 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

My design for a cardboard DLG. It flies OK when I did the "dry" test (no electronics), however it takes too much front weight to get it to fly right. This makes it too heavy for a DLG anyways, so this one is not going to be flown. I may still work on it though.

RCFS#10: The Pink Foam HK Bonsai DLG FLIES!!!!! (2 min 17 sec)


Episode 10 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

Yes, on that last clip the battery did come out of the velcro strap and was hanging from the plane. Sorry about the minimal flight footage, it's super hot out today so flying conditions weren't perfect. The plane does a roll before it actually starts flying (when I first launch it). I think that it's pretty cool how it does that... I'll work on the plane to see if I can get it to launch and fly longer.

RCFS#9: The Cost for Good R/C Electronics + HK Price Comparison! (4 min 54 sec)


Episode 9 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

Watch the video to learn how much I spent at my LHS for some electronics for a 3D foamie. The parts and electronics in the video are GOOD quality, TRUSTED products that will not fail or die out easily. See about how much it would cost to get the same stuff from HK.

The whole point of me building this foamy is so that it will last a long time. So, I bought some quality stuff to go with it. Peace of mind.

Subscribe to support the RCFS and to see the Crack Yak build and get flown!

Blade mCPX V2 Slow Flight in the Wind (1 min 26 sec)


Slow flight with my Blade mCPX V2. All stock except for the extended tail boom upgrade. Flying without the tail fin; that way it'll fly better in the wind.

For this small of a heli it's nice and stable in the wind.

Blade mCPX 3D With Inverted Crash on Tar! (1 min 3 sec)


Motor bogged out at the end, I was using full negative pitch but the brushed motor is wearing down from all the fast 3D lately... I may go brushless eventually. Sorry about the bad filming, my brother is still getting used to following the tiny thing around. NO damage from the crash! But later on the mCPX did break. One of the servo's gears stripped. I'll try to get it back up and flying relatively soon.

I get a trainer airplane to learn on > the wind carries plane into a tree

I buy a DLG to have fun with > its wing cracks in half

I get a micro heli to do some 3D with > I don't have the money to pay for more parts

I buy some foam to get in scratchbuilding > I can barely afford the electronics/parts to make it fly

EPIC FAIL!

LOL... *Sigh*
