Dear Michael
Thank you for sharing the BUMP kit. She flew very well at the maiden flight. Also, thank you for putting the link to my maiden flight video. I like the BUMP so much. Despite it was my first micro size craft ,the kit was so easy to assemble due to its sharp cuttings. As you reccomended on the instructions, the matching with the Minor Receiver, 7mm Didel Motor and 50mAh Lipo looks like a good choice. The maiden flight made me so happy and so amazed. How controllable and stable she was! I even did a loop! Believe your BUMP kit is one of the best choices for someone like me just stepping into the world of micro size airplanes, on the other hand, sad to know the sales didn't go well and no longer you are selling the kit.
Again, thank you so much for sharing the kit and your knowledges.

Yukio

Does anyone have a BUMP kit they are willing to part with or are there plans available? I should have bumps quicker and got one while they were still around. I just got all the electronics together :-(

BUMP goes brushless

Hi,
My first BUMP as described in post no.178 is a winner and has meanwhile gathered much airtime. Therefore i decided to use the trusty BUMP-design as a carrier for my homebuilt brushless micro-outrunners. Currently i finished a tiny 3,6 gramm outrunner with only three teeth and four poles, which i made from the stator of a small brushed motor. This machine has not the highest efficiency, but the output is more than enough for a little Bump. My friend StephanB sent me a few weeks ago a parts-set cut from 1mm foam called styrodur. I added a Falcon Breezeblock, a single lipo 145 mA, an YGE4BL brushless controller and my new motor. Total flying weight with a STO 2,7 x 2,6 prop is 23 gramms. I could not wait till next indoor-session and maidened it outside, although the weather was really cold and a breeze has sprung up. It went straight away with just a little bit of throttle used. The wing from the 1mm styrodur turned out to be too fragile to withstand the gusts and bent a little under the loads, so i have changed meanwhile to a wing from 2,5mm depron. I'am really happy with my new brushless BUMP, very good flight-performance. Once again a success with a BUMP!. Have fun with the pictures :-).

Hi Dieter,
again, a nice one. I'am happy, that the parts-set worked. I wasn't sure, whether the material is strong enough. Good to know, that you could replace the wing with something stiffer before damaging this jewel of a motor.

Question: The propmount is integral part of the bell? That prop seems to have a huge bore.

Propmount

Yes, the propmount is integrated.
That was necessary, because the outside diameter of the ball bearings amounts to 4mm. The original drilling of the prop is 4mm. I have it drilled out on 4,5mm.
That was for me the simplest solution.

Maiden!

No problem to fly this little beauti, very responsive on the rudder, OK on elevator.
Tried a loop, but didn`t had the oomp. Almost made a roll, but it "cut out" by itself after half a turn. Maybe trying it outside some calm day...

You might have the CofG too far forward and perhaps a stiff elevator hinge. Try to mass balance the elevator. My Bump loops easily.

The elevator hinge is running very smoth now, after I expanded the holes where the cf rod runs throu. Mass balancing it is a very good ide, as I think you are right about the CoG, and since it only weight`s 9,02g.

And, off course you was right about the 3mm act, plenty off power for a 9 grams modell!!
Just had to get every hinge pin running smoooth....

my bump came in at 18.9grms with a 50mh cell and 20.6 with a 130mh cell. I am using the micoinvent gear with the 0.7grm actuators but I soldered larger wires to the actuators and that makes them a gram each!

Does anyone think this is to heavy for the orange 7mm DD motor? It flew great earlier with the wattage microflyer gear and th 7mm motor but I didn't weigh it.

Also has anyone got any advice on the setup of the DD motor , I didn't put in any right thrust earlier and didn't notice any problems, how about downthrust?

Great model Michael, I spent most of the morning trying to get my micromoth to fly, your model only took me an hour from scratch and it flew great straight off.

well it flew great at that weight but loops weren't possible. It had a tendency to porpoise a little but I didn't want to add any weight to the front so just flew it around as it was for half an hour.

Started to build a 10" version and then decided to build it into a stick fuesalage. It AUW is 13.6 grams, I think it could do with more control surface for the rudder but I will give it a go tomorrow.
