Doppler run audio clips are usually 7-8 seconds.

The pass should be about 10 seconds of flat and level flight (at a fairly low altitude for good sound acqiusition. No Diving, and don't pull up or turn too soon after the pass.

if the camera is close to the aircraft as it passes, the pass can be shorter.


if it's farther out, the pass needs to be longer.

The main thing is to hear a steady freq on incoming, and outgoing. most people get a "feel" for this as they doppler more.

Some folks fly waaaay the heIl out there.

Passes at about 50 ft altitude and straight down the "runway" are great.

yeah, the incoming and outgoing angles aren't that different at 50 feet out, wouldn't effect the speed much

The 10sec pass is for what? A micro T-28? lol. But serious, my doppler passes last maybe 5-6 seconds.


BTW, nice to see you around Pete! Missed ya on the boards. Got too bored playing guitar? j/k

I have full flaps, about 30mm down, with approx. 3 mm down on elevator and 3-4mm up on ailerons. When deployed at 60-70 mph it does not balloon, stays nice and level and makes a way cool sound. I have the cg at 115 mm. Hope this helps. stephan

Fyi for anyone needing to do some touch up on the habu, model masters enamel "black metallic" is really really close to the pearl black horizon uses. It is a tiny tiny bit on the grey side but from 2-3 feet away you can not tell the difference!

Late to the party...again

Time to join the Habu 32 bandwagon - finally pulled the trigger on this model with stock setup (for now). I guess this means the end for the half completed foam Habu...!!

I'm glad I only have 398 pages of thread to look through for hints, tips and gotchas - 400 would be a real PITA...

Well, at least you finished the Viperjet. Pete's is still in the box, or half done or something like that.
