i really need to pick up an airbrush. these rattle can paint jobs are too heavy and the sharpies take too long and are too messy.

Speed Building

I decided to clear my bench and see if I could just make a template and modify the wings while the plane was together faster then building a new one and it only took me about 45 minutes and bingo!

old plane new wing setup!

Yaniel,
If you have not checked out this thread you shoud. It has lots of tricks and tips and its not to difficult to do. I know alot of folks have had success with a cheap Harbor Freight airbrush.

There are a few how to videos and links to other threads with some awesome paint schemes. Enjoy!

I got the 8th off of work, so now I just hope my batteries make it on time.

If not, I may have to borrow some.

I'll probably have 4 chargers... Only one balancer but if I'm careful it'll be alright.

Eric I have plenty of batteries. I use micro deans so if you are using something else make an adapter. I have attached an image of the battery side of the connector so the esc side will need to be oposite meaning the pin will stick out on the negative side of the esc. Also I use the fuzzy side of the velcro on the battery.

I think I can handle an adapter. Do you know if you soldered them the same way they say to on the Dean's package? I could probably find some around here if I dig hard enough.

I always put the rough side of velcro on my batteries but the plane I got from Dan had it on the same way you describe, so I'll continue that trend. I don't think it matters a lot.

Hopefully I get some batteries but if not, I'll have to hit you up for some borrowed time. Thanks!

I feel stupid about this... but I'm not sure which Mark I'm talking to here. Aren't there like ... 3 guys named Mark that could potentially be at any given indoor event?

Eric,
The package is not to helpful. Just keep in mind that the negative side of the esc will solder on the side with pin. The positive side of the esc will be the socket side of the connector. As far as the Marks go I am the better looking one!

That was using the 3S 610 pack, so I am sure dropping down to a 2s 460 will reduce it by about an oz. Also I noticed my foam is a bit thicker than 9mm, it is almost 11mm so I am sure that is some of it as well. I think it will be fine, but I was hoping for a 6oz build.

There is nothing wrong with a heaver Yak they just fly different. ADREHER just built one out of all 9mm 1.3 EPP and it flies great. The thicker foam does not flex as much so the controls are real crisp and it rolls like mad. The lighter ones are more floaty like a F3p.

Package says "Male pin + on batt/fem pin + on speed control"

This sounds consistent with what you said, so I'll get an adapter made up *just in case*

I'll put Micro Deans on it anyway but if everything does come in, it probably won't show up until Friday and then I'll be rushing to solder 8 connections and I don't like doing that ... especially when we probably don't have enough connectors to do the job.

Eric,

Not a problem at all on the batteries. I will try and drop by the shop with a battery just to make sure your adapter is configured right.
