Possible use of bit char-g bits and Aerosoarer?

I was reading in the micro sticky above about the use of Bit Char g for planes. Is anyone still doing this?, the article is almost 4 years old!!

I came across an old bit char clone i bought a long time ago. Is it possible to still use this?

I would like to try the BUMP model. but before i get started i wanted to make sure this would still work since its a knockoff char g.

You and I might be the only ones playing with these. This area is very trendy and whatever is hot at the moment gets the attention. I just printed out the BUMP and I havent yet found a prop for the M-20 motor I have. From what I have read, if you are not using the BitESC, then you need to add a mosfet to the Rx. They are all very similar in design. I got lucky and picked up a Rx, Tx, actuator, BitESC which already had some work done to it.

Hi HEL, have you successfully built a Bit plane?

by BitESC you mean the RX from the car right? so the RX has an ESC built onto it?

I have an Aerosoarer, Picooz and AeroAce motors/gearboxes at my disposal, would those work with this?

Hi,
I've built and flown several bit planes. Since low cost rc planes became available there isn't much use of the bit stuff anymore. I'd recommend doing a conversion of the x-twin/Aero Ace. They are cheap and work well.

If you really want ot do a bit try to find a Crazy Car or one of the other ones that uses a motor for the steering channel, much easier to deal with. You will need to use a lipo battery and I'd recommend the Bump, it's a great design.

I printed out the BUMP plans and have some 1/16 balsa that I will use to build the airframe.

What I mean by BitESC is that there was an add-on ESC someone put together. It alleviates the need to modify the Rx to handle higher amps to a motor. More like 1 amp max With the BitESC. I have an M-20 motor which is typical for this, but need the right prop.

I tested the Tx and Rx with the motor and actuator tonight and it did some weird things. The actuator would flicker back and forth if throttle was not touched, but as long as throttle was hit once in a while it would settle right down. The throttle on ESC seemed totally unresponsive, maybe some effect, but without a prop I cant tell. It should atleast handle the current to the motor is my guess.

These have already been mentioned and I have no experience with them.
