de nada, guys !
Vince

Next video will be autopilot parameters for return to home and hold position.

For informations, I lost my plane today, and recovered it 10 hours after without any damage !! Bad autopilot parameters, but good sensors, so flat fly to ground.

Bye all

p.s : another video with volumetrics clouds !!!! One of my best videos !

Flying over clouds (5 min 50 sec)

Techspy, looks like you have lots of gear in there!

I have to ask, where did you find a 3 blade 9x3 prop??

As for stalling and cruise speed. The plane will just about stop before stalling. Easy cruise speed of about 30kmph. But you will find all this out with your own measuring equipment.

Hi Vince,

now that you mention it... I was wondering on your previous video why the artificial horizont is sometimes so wrong. Do you know the reason? Or is this not the artificial horizont? Or is just the display wrong and "internally" it works more precisely (for stabilisation)?

I have a large assortment of props from my tri-copter builds. I get them here,

Oh, and it is a 9x5, not 9x3. Sorry for the typo.

Nice video!
Looks like you use a CMOS camera, try CCD cams, maybe get a better view.

elpimous - That was a fantastic video, but the little cockpit made it even better. Thanks for sharing. Could you maybe expand on your cockpit build? Like, where you get the miniture dials in the cockpit? Maybe maybe more info on the moving control column? We seem to all need weight up front, and that seems to be a great weight to add.

I have extra canopy, next time you notice me, and I will add it to your package.

Hi guys,

* well, for miniature dials, it's :
www.propagteam.cz

max 1/4 scale (1/5 or 1/6 could be better, but not exist !)

* pictures for moving hand will arrive soon (for front weight, I have 35 grs in nose, just in front of 4S 4000 battery, and I' ve balanced plane to 7.8 cm)

* to BEVRC, I'm sad to hear that U think it' a cmos !!!!
It's a hobby wireless "petite" CCD pal 555 lines ( so a small sn555 ) A very good camera !
I think noise was due to weather and poor 3 dbi rx antenna !

* to Miha, You're right !
Artificial horizon was wrong, really : it's my fault !!!!
Z sensor is just in contact to fuse ; Up and Down sensors don't have place to see clearly the sky/ground !
I'll correct it soon too.
It's a chance for me to recover a safe plane !!

Photos soon !
Bye all
Vince

So received mine today. Happy to report that it came through undamaged with packaging intact.

Excellent service from BEVRC.com
Fast delivery, good communications etc.

Happily recommend them to you guys .....


As for the plane. Much better foam than the HK crap EPS. Not as good as Multiplex though! Don't think anyone can beat them.

Help me

The website says "The last 7 skywalkers, with special price 99USD, default EMS shipping, shipped the same day, 3-7 days worldwide!!!" So what is the cost for the plane shipped to the USA??
