This video was taken on a windy day in early October last year at a large family gathering that we had. A good friend of mine has a beautiful Cessna 170 with a STOL kit and we decided to put on a little off-the-cuff airshow for everyone. We were communicating through the radio and had a blast! Hope you all enjoy the video!

Daniel and Caleb's dual airshow 10-12 (6 min 58 sec)


PS: With the Falcon 27x12 prop, the 104 was keeping up with him when his airspeed was reading 130mph! Oh yeah!

Classic. A mixture of chopped meat shots would have really added to it!

Fantastic video Daniel! I really enjoyed watching. Great flying and kudos to your videographer for doing a great job. I got a surprise at the end. The whole time, I thought the Cesna was also a model but multiple times thoughout, I thought "Man, that looks like a real airplane!"

Hey guys, I'm on the lookout for a Hacker A30-12XL v2 but can't stomach the $80 plus shipping to get one. If someone has one laying around or knows where I can find a REALLY good deal on one let me know. Thanks!

Nice Daniel . Your dad has a steady hand after filming you all the years.

Tim how was the cheeseburger after looking at you hamburger finger in the ER.


Joke of the day .

UPS Airlines

Remember it takes a college degree to fly a plane, but only a high school diploma to fix one.

After every flight, UPS pilots fill out a form, called a 'gripe sheet,' which tells mechanics about problems with the aircraft. The mechanics corrects the problems, document their repairs on the form, and then pilots review the gripe sheets before the next flight.

Never let it be said that ground crews lack a sense of humor.

Here are some actual maintenance complaints submitted by UPS pilots (marked with a P) and the solutions recorded (marked with an S) by maintenance engineers.

(By the way, UPS is the only major airline that has never, ever, had an accident).

P: Left inside main tire almost needs replacement.
S: Almost replaced left inside main tire.
*
P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.
*
P: Something loose in cockpit.
S: Something tightened in cockpit.
*
P: Dead bugs on windshield..
S: Live bugs on back-order.
*
P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200-feet-per-minute descent.
S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground..
*
P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
S: Evidence removed.
*
P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
S: DME volume set to more believable level.
*
P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
S: That's what friction locks are for.
*
P: IFF inoperative in OFF mode.
S: IFF is always inoperative in OFF mode.
*
P: Suspected crack in windshield.
S: Suspect you're right..
*
P: Number 3 engine missing.
S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.
*
P: Aircraft handles funny. (I love this one!)
S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right and be serious.
*
P:Target radar hums.
S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.
*
P: Mouse in cockpit.
S: Cat installed.
*
P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
S: Took hammer away from the midget.

Airspeed and ground speed differs.....actual ground speed could be 100-110.

[QUOTE=TheEarl Of Whirl;23938560]3 axis gyro airplane stabilization question

I am considering incorporating a gyro based airplane stab system in my current FunCub (Carbon SS Trainer) project. I will be using a futaba fasst system (R617FS RX) with a buddy cord between a 7C & 8FG Super or the new 14SG TX. The 7C will be the slave trainer box.

Does anyone have experience or opinions regarding the following low dollar 3 axis gyros?
Vitter what gyro system did you play with on your Juka?

Hobbypartz (73P-3AxisGyro-FixedWing-Plane)
http://www.hobbypartz.com/73p-3axisg...ing-plane.html


OMG!
I just got that gyro from HobbyPartz last night.
Hooked it up on my 3D Foamie.
You guys won't believe it!

- As soon as I hit the switch, the plane became stable!
- I went for Knife edge, the plane stayed Knife edge!
- NOW, one thing this plane don't do, TORQUE ROLL. So I hovered nose up, then full aileron, Damn, it's doin' it! NO SWEAT .
- Inverted, it stayed inverted, and flew it around inverted.
- After around 10 flights. I asked one of the retired senior to try it out. He goes, no thanks, He will crash it. I said don't worry about it (on high rates). 10 seconds later the old man was cracking up. WOW, that 3D plane is so easy to fly and fun.
The old man flew high alpha, inverted, hover rolls and etc..Then he goes, wow it flies slow and stable. Mind you that his skills is a GWS slow stick
I did not tell him what I got in it though.

I wish I had a camera with me.
- Spyro

Note: With the gyro ON, the pilot is still flying the plane but, It keeps the plane's attitude with stability.
It keeps the plane very stable flying in the wind as well.

My Tx : Fuataba FASST 7C 2.4GHz
Tested on: HobbyKing 3D Park Flyer Piaget (not the mini Piaget)

Amazing fun to watch! Mega trust & respect between two competent pilots.

Great first hand performance report. Thanks for the feedback.

Any hunting / jitter issues with the servos?

It seems like you may have answered this question based on your comments above but let me ask another way.

Is the system architecture functionality smart enough to re-calibrate intended flight position after your TX inputs. In other words, as an example if you pull (elevator) to 45 degree up-line & let go of the tx control input, will the aircraft stay on that relative 45 degree flight path or will the gyro attempt to immediately level the plane out to 0 degrees / straight and level?
