yep the other night i rented a dvd player and watched some local indo XXX and washed it as fast as i wanted. It was as clean as a whistle i tells ya.

Dang they have these massive kites down the beach and im tempted to get one to satisfy my flying bug. But i dont think i could take it home with me.
Say Kris i watched the video on those funfighters aka the rare bear nano racers from HK but will they actually be releasing the rare bear or should i just get the P47 one? also are the esc's in them ok. Do i need to replace anything in them at all?

The Rare Bear would be the quickest of them - Kris should be able to confirm.

The ESC's are ok with 3-cell - 4S and you're pushing it.

And I think my Speedie carked it today...

yeah BJ they not the same as the skyangel ones though im sure. Have a look at the specs on them.

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...-Spec_ESC.html

I might be better off ordering the original rare bear from somewhere else and using my $50 credit from HK for the lipos for it.

Had a good bonding session with dad tonight over a few bintangs. Was good to get a few things off my chest.

Stal feels like a new man and feels like he has the world at his feet now. The world is my oyster from now on.

Stal disappointed that webber didnt come good and stuffed up in the wet Stal

yeah razors my pitch setup on MCPX is all messed up too mate. I follow a few guides and set it up per the instructions but its still not right. My really bogs hard some times. I even put new blades on it. Ill give it an overhaul when i get back.

Stal has an itchy finger while sitting on a $50 HK credit. Not really sure what i should get with it.

I really need some smaller 3s 800mah lipos to get my larger 3d hawk in the air. My press the go button around wednesday so that way they will arrive when i get back. Just hoping the the aussie wharehouse has some in stock.

Bud i had plained to get up early and go for a surf but its been chit the last couple of days. I got an inside tip from one of the locals that its going to pick up on thursday.

I might be going seawalking today. They put a clear helmet on you and you walk around the ocean floor. Should be pretty cool. Dad wants me to go parasailing but i didnt pack the huggies so im not sure i will do that. Im chit scared of heights but it might be a good way to start conquering my fears.

Anyways lads hope you all have a good day.

Meebz i hope that wind dies down for ya bruz so you get to maiden your hawk and get bitten by the true flying bug.

Stal might get a kite today

OI Kris are the nanotech 1000mah 3s lipos to big for the nano racers? I would like to order a few but i want your opinion first mate, thanks. Glad to see you got your rocks off too mate. I had a little indo chick bouncing up and down on me the first and second night i was here. I got a happy massage as well the other day. Now i have no money left and cant afford them. Why did i have to go and spend all my money on stupid clothes and silly chit when i could of been floggin' em most night. OH well. Ive been trying with the backslappers but have had no luck yet.

I am working on a 3 axis, thrust vectoring system

I dunno Raz...has that ever been done before? I know the full-scale F-22 has thrust-vectoring nozzles...but with a prop, I predict possibly some rather hideous unplanned gyroscopic effects. I could be wrong though, and it's an interesting concept...curious to see how it turnz out.


Here's my little freebie mini-ATX power supply conversion (that got thrown in the trash @ werk)...good for 250 watts and 18 amps. Just did it as an excersize in possibilities...it's too darn cramped inside to even add a switch and LED...but it's small and kinda neat. Cost me about 3 bux.

I highly recommend doing a full size ATX PSU conversion though...my A-power is still cranking out current after 4 years (450w, 15A, two ports)

How to:

I can see thrust angles really f.cking things up.

I'll try it
others have used a gimbal system before, some even on funjets

No mate 1000mah 3s are to heavy you want ether a ZIPPY 800mAh 3S1P 20C packs or a Turnigy nano-tech 850mah 3S 25~40C Lipo Packs

Well hmm..we are talking beyond regular fixed-wing prop torque, p-factor, thrustlines and angles and such here...remember the old gyroscopic demonstration- hold the spinning thing in your hand, feel the direction and amount of (prop) torque- turn the thing 90deg in different axis' and feel the gyroscopic force wrenching it out of the rotating plane. Which leads me to....perhaps a gyro on board to compensate and help control the thing...like a...heli.

Seems anytime we start messing with tilting things...it gets complicated...ask the V-22 boyz...


I've been jonesin' for a UM scale V-22 Osprey for two years now.....



I seem to recall a neat site linked over in the "girls" thread..they had some really nice looking scale EDF jets..some had vectoring along w/ slats/flaps/retracts...really nice looking machines...I won't mention the nice looking azn model...oh I just did.


Okay I'm about to test my little PSU in real world charging conditions now...4 freshly flown MCPx batts @ a measly 1.8 amps. Fire extinguisher nearby. Check.



Bud, testing Bud
