G'day fellas,

Also had a few people ask about fitting a Mr RC Soundcard, so some pics and details below. First tho, I do highly recommend it. It's a great product and the owner Andrew, gives first class service and support. (I've now bought 8 sets of these, never had a issue or fault yet). And again, (cause I can't say this enough), the service and support given by Andrew is second to none.

Some features with the latest version, currently 4.1:

1. You get 6 engine sounds, plus some extra sounds you can allocate to switches. Typically these are machine guns, cannons, "clear" (voice sound), etc. The merlin also has the famous p51 "whistle". There are chips available for different engine sounds as well. There is also car versions, and Andrew will also do custom sounds. With the standard aircraft card you'll get:

Lycoming
Merlin. (Spitfire/mustangs)
Continental
Daimler Benz 601. (Me109/fw190)
Pratt and Whitney double wasp (P47/corsair/hellcat etc)
And a jet turbine sound.
Changing the sound is easy, via a push button on the card.

2. You get start-up and shut-down sounds of the engines, and it's all auto with your throttle inputs. Tho using throttle trim is best.
3. It's dead easy to install. (Even I can do it!)
4. It's loud, and in my opinion, sounds awesome in the air, really finishes off a nice model. (See videos below).
5. And with the TT transducers (your speakers), they use the foam of the aircraft to resonate the sound,...Continue Reading

Here it is, my first edf! Proving to be a great plane to fly, really having a blast with it. (I think there are more 90mm edfs in my immediate future!)

As I said, new to jets, so the flying is nothing spectacular, but the vid should make up for it in entertainment value... I hope you enjoy, it was fun making it!

Been raining lots of late so I have had plenty of time to do up a new vid for a good mate of mine of his new ME 262. This was taken from vid I shot of his first four flights, tho he's pretty comfy with a edf. Hope you enjoy it.

G'day. Get asked a bit about this so thought i'd post a permanent reference for anyone wanting to do it before I deleted the pics. I highly recommend it because:

1. It's awesome fun, really gives this bird the power she deserves n u have a 5s or 6s option. (6s is a bit of rocket note)
2. It so simple, even I could do it.
3. It's awesome fun.

All you need is the 4258 motor and X mount from the FMS Olympus (any fms dealer will have), and a suitable 100 amp speedy. I used a castle 100, n it just fit under the battery tray that I can still use the sliding tray no issue at all. (Note: if you want a smaller gap than pictured below, you need to order the spare 4258 prop adapter, reduces the gap by about 2-3mm) rest of the instructions on the pics below. Easy! Finally, go fly the pants off her and laugh out loud while ur doing it. (And try to justify in ur head fitting the soundcard!) Some vids below, enjoy.
