Hey Everybody,

Here's my latest idea in the making called the RC Foam Show (RCFS for short).

The RC Foam Show (RCFS) (0 min 26 sec)


Music from: http://beatsroyaltyfree.com/

Scratchbuilding + RCFS inspired by Flite Test!

The RC Foam Show (RCFS) will include scratchbuilding, plane technology, and R/C stuff. I had the idea last night that I could do something like this over the summer for fun. RCFS is just an idea for now; don't expect anything too soon! I'd like to get into scratchbuilding and thought that I'd introduce my idea here before I decided and ordered some stuff. All the plane kits that I've bought never really lasted a long time for me. They either ended up in trees, broke when trying to get them down, or are still stuck up there. I didn't have the parts or experience to keep them all working at that time. With scratchbuilding if a plane breaks, I could easily build a new one. I'd like to start by building some gliders and small DLGs first and then moving on to electric motor and ESC powered flying wings, trainers, and jets. At the moment I only have one ESC, motor, and propeller combination that came from the SkyFun jet shown in the video. I could use that combo in scratchbuilding.

Thanks for watching and comment with your ideas. Please no negative comments because it's just an idea for now.

Hey everybody,

My new R/C site is just about finished now, I have to add a few more details and various items in the webpages themselves but for now I'd say that it's completed. I changed the background so that it wasn't so distracting and all over the place, too, so it's easier to read and skim through. The more R/C models that I get, build, and test, the larger the site will become!

Please check it out because I've worked hard on it!

Hey everybody,

My new R/C website has been going through a lot of remodeling lately, plus I've been writing a lot for the webpages that it has of my R/C builds and such. Please check it out; it's there for people to get the information that they need for the R/C products that I have had experience with. I even put up a full FAQ.

CLICK ME!

Thanks for checking it out!

Getting a lot better at hovering inverted! I will be upgrading a few parts soon on the mCPX too, my "custom" tail (see my other blog post) made from two broken tails has now broken, so I'll upgrade to a longer one, too!

Hey everybody,

I fixed the cracked tail boom by attaching an old one with a bad motor to this one, extending the length of the boom, too! I just wrapped the motor's wires outside of the boom and plugged it into the plug on the main board - it flies fine!

I used hot glue, a zip tie, and a small piece of electrical tape to complete this. If you break your tail boom and have an old one sitting around, don't hesitate to do this because it works and even makes the heli fly better!

ENJOY! (and subscribe!) I'm much more comfortable and confident at the sticks flying this heli now, and I can't wait to go to a bigger space where I can throw this into high rates and really rip it up!

I do good video editing; recently I've just been uploading videos like this because there's not too much editing to do to them. But check out some of the compilations/edits on my channel that I've done before and enjoy!

All the neighbors fired up their lawn mowers, vehicles, or whatever so I decided to fire up the mCPX V2 and fly around a little bit. I would've flown it faster with higher rates, but I was limited for space and it was starting to get dark.

Here's my latest video with the mCPX V2:

Blade mCPX V2 + Noob - Forward Flight!!!!! (1 min 18 sec)


I went from my coaxial Scout CX to the mCPX, then hovered that good within the first few flights. Then I had to replace a few parts, so now about a week later (or more? I can't remember...) I'm on to forward flight and doing circuits. Today I learned 3 new things! I first learned how to hover nose-in, then I learned how to turn while doing forward flight, and then also learned how to fly circles with the mCPX. I'm doing really good from going straight from coaxial to CP (plus the simulator), and having fun! I really like the helis better than planes... something about them is just cool.

I've had this heli since the weekend.. so I still consider myself a noob, but I'm getting better at it every day! My last heli was the Blade Scout CX.
