Greeting Greg00,

Very nice, that carbon touch is excellent and adds a nice look to the plane.

Welp.. here it is all painted. Definitely a ten footer and if I had it to do over I would've done everything quite differently, but at least I'll be able to see it. Hopefully the paint didn't add too much weight. If it did, oh well. Didn't get any stripes put on because frankly I'm done pissing around with it. Apparently although it worked fine on the rest of the plane, the paint "aligatored" the top of the left wing which pissed me off to no end. I'm sure it won't affect anything flight-wise but it's going to bother me forever. In future I'll go with a more foam safe paint and skip the polycrylic, use the colored packing tape, invest in an airbrush, or just cover the damn thing with tower kote or a similar low heat covering. Wayyyy too much hassle for such a simple job.

Harumph.

I've been reading that there are a fair number of people having trouble with landings and wing stalls.

I have the durafly dynamic s , which everyone reckons is the same as the blaze. From what I can see ,it looks the same.

Having said that, I find the dynamic lands perfectly 98% of the time and landing speeds can be is very slow.

I find that if a wing does want to stall, the plane gives plenty of warning and corrects very easily. Actually it has been a good learning experience to be able to pick up on signs of an early stall.

I have only been flying this type of aircraft for a few months and this is not an expert opinion ,only my observation.

Altough, I think I been bitten by the glider bug. Cheers.

Je suis d'accord, les marques en particulier la fibre de carbone est très bon.

I try not to do steep turns at low speed and low heights. I can catch a stall high up but the couple times I have crashed it was because I was turning for an approach too low and too steep.

Do yoy have a brake on the motor and if so is it hard or soft?

Your exactly spot on watdazit. A steep turn at slow speeds low to the runway will stall and hit the deck.
I have the brake on , I suppose you would say it is set a bit on the soft side. Thatt's the way in came set from the factory.

Thanks medroller. Others have said having the motor set on a soft brake helps on landing.

Hi John,

Page two of the manual list the bolts as these:

Screw for wing connector: M3.0 x 8 , 4 each

Screw for servo hatch: M3.0 x 22 , 2 each

Wing bolt: M4.0 x 20 , 2 each




Measurements are metric and I usually find the nylon metric bolts in the Ace hardware stores.

Hope this helps.

Hi Watdazit,

To be a bit clearer on this, the ESC brake setting is a features that determines how abruptly the motor/prop assemblage will stop spinning. A purpose for this would be to gradually slow down a prop spinning at max revolution. This gradual slow down helps to prevent the sudden and abrupt halting of a prop and helps to prevent damage to motor and motor/nose housing and prop assemblage. A large folding prop spinning for all it is worth is a good bit of mass and energy to dissipate so a hard brake can sometimes cause problems. A hard brake will usually encourage most props to fold back where sometimes a soft brake will slow the motor rpm down but the air flow will still keep the prop spinning and open.

As mentioned, a motor set for soft brake will sometimes leave a fix prop or folding prop still spinning. This may be due to weak braking by the ESC, size and pitch of prop, and speed of aircraft. To have the prop still spinning is generally not the desirable result of setting a brake.

Regardless of brake setting, one of the ways to slow a glider is to just barely increase throttle untill the blades unfold enough for the air flow to catch them and make them spin. This spinning creates drag and helps to slowing down the glider for a landing. Of course, we have to remember to throttle back so many meters before the glider actually touches the ground so the prop is not damaged by the landing.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for that Obake. Unfortunately I have not been flying for a month because of the grass fire dangers here and now I have just had eye surgery so it is going to be a few more weeks before I can get out again to try it all.

Good healing with the eye. A friend of mine just had cataract surgery. Ugh! Something that I hope to avoid in my old age.
