These are great. I like the way you mixed the model footage with the simulator footage. And music always makes me feel better.

It'd be cool if you added the Realfight recording files for download as well.

Thanks guys, let us know which guides you want to see next!

As for the simulator airplanes, they are the G3.5 Katana MD and G4.5 Addiction, pretty much stock probably just changed the throws / expo and cg a bit. you can find the planes here :

http://knifeedge.com/forums/downloads.php

They are pretty awesome planes!, although i won't deny you that the simulator is very similar but it is not the same thing, some maneuvers in the simulator may be harder or easier than in real life, and in my opinion i think the simulator is the key to learning 3D, then after you can do some 3D in the simulator, get a good 3D airplane with the correct setup.

By the way we should organize a small Online 3D Clinic in G4.5 Multiplayer and there we can all be online at the same time and you guys can ask specific questions about maneuvers or how to do them and i'll try my best to show them and answer your questions.

Hi Guys, our good friend Radio Rookie has written an awesome article that is wrriten especially for us 3D / Freestyle pilots, that will answer all the questions you have about Lipos, the article is called. The Black Art of Lithium Polymer Packs: Tips for Handling and Caring of Lithium Polymer Packs to view it go here:

http://www.precisionaerobatics.com/howto.php

Here is part of the article, for the full article click the above link.

Overview

High Performance 3D/Freestyle flying requires four critical considerations for battery packs which are; consistent power throughout the entire duration of the sequence, light enough to be within the prescribed AWT of the model to retain design flight characteristics, properly sized to accommodate the demands of the drive system and a long trouble free service life.

Lithium Polymer packs (Lipo) presents some unique challenges to high performance 3D/Freestyle flying and in certain aspects, more so than other forms of fixed-wing application. Apart from the 4 critical considerations mentioned above, they require adequate ventilation for cooling, a secure mounting method, adequate discharge levels to meet the application and a structured approach to charging, maintenance, handling and storage.

Unlike sports and scale applications, sizing, matching and selection of Lipo packs for 3D/Freetyle applications is no simple task by any means and in some aspects more critical. There are many mind boggling permutations to consider and as such should need to be taken into account from a global perspective. To the uninitiated this is indeed very confusing and sometimes dangerous and thus spawning irrational fears about Lipos. Lithium technology is probably the most widely used form of power packs today. It usage is not specific to just RC alone and can found in contemporary household electronics ranging from cell phones, laptops, MP3 players, cameras, PDAs etc. Therefore the technology like everything else, if used properly is safe.

Broken Elevaotr Half-HELP?

So I finally got my Extra all trimmed out and flying like the Thoroughbred she is today (Thanks for all the help HERC!!!!!!!!). Ran 6 packs through her and on the last one I got a bit to low in High Alpha and ripped the right half off os the elevator. Anybody got experience in fixing this sort of thing?

Yep, easy fix. Cut the monocote off of the joiner in the center, glue it all back together and then glue a carbon rod or something across the joiner. It will make sense after you remove the monocote. The joiner is kind of T shaped and it is easy to lay the rod in there.

Got It! Thanks again Herc! I also got spare CF laying around as this is my second extra! Thanks.

Hey are you flying this weekend? Saturday?
