RCFS#31: Glide Testing the Schwing - EPIC EDIT (1 min 38 sec)


Episode 31 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

My epic edit of glide testing the Schwing. It has a large, heavy 4 AA battery RX pack but still glides really well in my opinion, especially with those weak, small throws that I was doing with it! Once I get this all set up right with a smaller battery it's going to be AWESOME!!!!! Stay tuned and thanks for subscribing!

I've almost got torque rolls down now, too!

Why did I skip episode 26 you may ask? Because there's something very special for 26 that's unlisted now... but won't be in a little while.

My latest project! Worked about 4-5 hours on it today (came at around 2:45, finished working at around 8:15... with a supper break, of course )

Drying outside (lots of Welder's glue to dry and it SMELLS inside - I got a lecture from my mom for using it inside the house...)



What's left to do:

-Install motor, ESC, RX, and battery
-Route aileron and rudder pushrods

Hey Everybody,

Well over the past few days I made a new goal for myself: gain 50 subscribers for my YouTube channel by the end of the summer.

I posted this here and only here when I was at about at 37 - instantly overnight I hit 41! only 10 more would exceed my goal for the entire summer!

Thanks for the support and interest in the RC Foam Show (RCFS) guys - the Crack Yak videos will be coming as soon as possible!
