So I may have to retract my first statement about the T-motor, time and testing will tell???

Syner please keep us posted, I really want to try it aswell but your the guinea pig for now LOL

It was the spektum compatible from HeadsupRc http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...hz-DSM2/Detail

It looks exactly the same as this one, that fixed my problem http://www.commonsenserc.com/product...oducts_id=2865

And no the light was not flashing it was on steady
I did find a small amount of clear Rtv silicone between the prongs of the open channels after I pulled it out. I like using it to mount receivers, but the excess ouzed out and may have caused the issue but I did't think silicone was a conductor.
The more I think about it, it was on the rudder channel and it always went dead sticks when banking a turn. I know I know....no rudder hear but, out of pure habit I still catch myself giving this thing rudder input.
Has anyone had issues with the headsup Rx or know if Clear RTV silcone is a conductor?

I use this RX and it works great.

Can't beat the price either.

I use the ar500 and ar6200 also from their page here. Never had any problems with them.

You can see example here on how far I go out with them. Watch full screen on pc because I will be a pin dot after awhile if not full screen from being a bit far out.

Wow those are cheap, are they the real deal or the nock offs? Great price either way.
Great video too.
I tested my wing and went as far I could see it and still had total control so I think the issue is handled, you can see it pretty good being as big as it is. The neighbor down the road came over to check it out, LOL he said I was banking my turns over his house. Thats exactly 1/4 mile away, so range is not a problem anymore.

What kind of flight times are people gettin out of em?
I use a couple differant batteries but one example for me is an 1150mah timer set at 8 1/2 minutes and I only pulled 550-650 mah out.
So I tried 850 mah packs and an added weight it the nose 8-8 1/2 minute flights and the charger show it drawing about the same amount out of the pack so its (not totally draining) spot on.
I LOVE THIS WING

on my minipopwing i can get up to 15 min on a battery if i throw in coasting half the time. if there are some decent winds i will fly around a bit then jump up high and ride the wind around w/no throttle until i get back down.

coasting like i am doing from 0:50 - 1:05 here. on some winds i can coast about 40-60 yards before having to hit the throttle.
you can see i am getting some good range in this vid also. i have gone probably double the farthest distance you see in the video with the mini. beyond that it's more of an orientation issue than rx range. the orange on one side and stripes on the other help but at some point it becomes just a dot and i have to turn back. the great thing about these though is if i lose orientation i can just cut the throttle and coast a bit until i figure it out. if i try that on say my rare bear i will be planting my prop in the ground real quick (ask me how i know lol).

Lazertoyz MiniPopWing (2 min 49 sec)


if i push WOT the whole time i get about 1/2 that time.

also i broke my 6x4E prop that came with the mini. in the meantime while waiting for replacements i have some 5.25x6.25. definitely not as good as the 6x4E. i have to use 1300 3s to get what i was getting on 6x4 w/800 2s. even then it is more speed than thrust (which makes total sense given the sizes). i have some 6x5 coming too that i will try once i get a hold of them. 6" definitely seems to be the sweet spot for the mini. just a matter of pitch preference/testing now.

Maiden flight

Maiden my Popwing yesterday. First two launch was in the ground. Had to adjust my elevon up big time . Third time she took flight. Two right click and she was flying straight. I got three flights in with her and came home happy.

Most wings (and delta wing jets) need a decent amount of up reflex for level flight...

For wings I thought it was just because the battery is up front. Is there some other reason? I am not that well versed in wing design but am curious to know.
