HOW - October 24-28
Its about three months away but I want to take a minute to let those of you who dont know the dates for HOW are October 24-28 . I hope everyone that has attended in the past will return and Im hoping to see new faces also. So please tell all your friends about us. Its a fun fly/3D/Jet event. We welcome all models. As far as the event goes. We are pretty laid back here on the Farm. Use your common sense and there will be no problems.

As you know we dont charge a landing fee.

We will have some sort of meal for you Thursday,Friday and Saturday night at no Charge. We may throw something together for lunch on some days.

I have no idea about a raffle. I havent asked anyone for any donations for prizes. I didnt last year and some awesome people gave us some great prizes to give Away.

There is electricity at the barn and we have 2 flushable toilets. There will be porta pottys there also. There is no running water .

As I think of other things I will post them here.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask me here or on Facebook (Rusty Trawick)

I had show some interest in some items that were in the classified section, apparently I offend the person that had the items for sale, for that I am truly sorry. I build 1/96 scale ships and he had 2 that I was interested in, his add had stated, they could be bought seperately, but sadly not the case. Sine I was driving to North Carolina this week, I thought I could add some ships to my fleet, but now not the case. The person deleted the questions I asked, so they offended him I guest. How can I delete these sections ? Please help. Thanks

Glue & Fly Series - Flight #16 F-22 Micro V1.5 Advanced Setup



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOBp8e5MMiA

This is Flight #16 of our latest F-22 Micro Parkjet Build dubbed V1.5
Time to perform some Test Flights with the Intermediate / Advanced Setup using a 3S LIPO.
The LIPO I'm using is a 3S 450mah 65C.
The All-Up-Weight of this Micro Parkjet is 131 grams with a 3S 450mah 65C LIPO.
The Thrust-To-Weight Ratio with this 3S LIPO is 2.1:1
Before this flight I had increase the Aileron Dual-Rate from 25%-35%.
I increased the Elevator EXPO from 25% to 35%.
This greatly reduced the Twitchiness during flight and made the movements much more smooth.
It also gave me more Aileron control authority for Rolls and Split-S maneuvers.
I also input 6 clicks of Down-Trim on the Elevator as the Parkjet wanted to climb.
My observations on this Flight:

* Aileron Trim is perfect.
* Elevator Trim may need improvement after more evaluation.
* Aileron Dual-Rate may need an increase to be determined after more evaluation.
* Elevator Dual-Rate many need a decrease to be determined after more evaluation.
* Aileron EXPO may need a decrease after more evaluation.
* Elevator EXPO may need an increase after more evaluation.
* The above remarks are regarding very fine tuning of this Parkjet. As you can see from the video it is stable, responsive, acrobatic, fast, and gets great flight time on this power setup.
* After the 4 minute flight the...Continue Reading

This video is an Unboxing, Charge Test, & Review featuring the Hobbymate D6 Duo Lipo Battery Charger With Wireless Charging capability.

When you click on this video, you get to see me unbox it, show you a sweet Hobbymate lipo charging bag, do a charge demonstration, and do a review notes wrap-up at the end of the video.

Hobbymate D6 Duo Lipo Battery Charger With Wireless Charging Unboxing, Charge Test, & Review (13 min 18 sec)

Here are my Lipo Charger Review Notes:

Pros:

- Easy to use interface
- It comes with a built-in power supply
- The charger offers up to 200 Watts on AC and up to 650 Watts on DC
- Ability to charge wirelessly and it does it easily with my GF's iPhone X
- Lots of feedback on the display
- Ability to easily charge two batteries at once.
- It has a very small footprint

Cons:
- It does not come with ports for banana plugs, but you can use adapters to charge batteries of all kinds.
- It does not come with a DC plug with alligator clips for field charging, but it would be easy to make that.
- The fan always runs, even it's not in use.

FB2204 1430KV Brushless Motor $5.14 Oz Banana

Don't you just love a mystery ?

2s / 3s ? ( my guess is it's 2s only - guessing )
They do say 10A , so I have ordered a 12A esc .. ( 2s / 3s )
Hmmmm , interesting enough to by at the price .
Be a pretty small motor me thinks , 1430kv .. 2s , RPM around 8000 to 10,000 depending on the prop .
Hmmmmm , wonder if it would pull a 1.2 meter foam job ?



They dont even give the shaft size , so a bit of a lottery on what I get .
Still waiting for stuff ,
I should turn on the TV for some Bathurst ...

In the last couple of months, I've done pretty well regarding the acquisition of castoff models.

In my last blog, I mentioned how I had received a couple of small foam P-51 Mustangs from Jimmy Dixon, a fun user here on RCG who goes by the handle "jdixon."

Of the two, one is flying again and the other is undergoing a major refinishing job. The latter is the one which will be representing Bunny, the Tuskegee Airmen tribute at the Palm Springs Air Museum. A link to that flying exhibit is in my previous blog entry.

A friend of mine who, sadly, is in poor health, gave me some models of his own design. He used to design and manufacture kits. A beautiful little one-off model wound up crashing due to a failed servo arm, but it's repairable. I haven't heard back from him regarding a visit so that we can fix it and I hope and pray he's ok. It'll be a real privilege to learn some wood modeling skills with the help of a master. The other models are gliders, both powered and unpowered. My goal is to get the big 2m unpowered bird ready for the big glider tow event my club holds every December. The powered models are total "old school" with brushed motors and old 72MHz receivers.

Finally, please see two of the three models I scored at the club when one of our seasonal visitors announced that he was giving away some old models. Two are shown below, cleaned up and ready. The E-flite Mini Ultra Stick is back in flying condition, but it'll need a...Continue Reading

today just received my white ev200d's
order made 07.09 received 02.10

issues encountered already :
- hdmi image has an excessive pink-blue'ish (overexposed) tint wich i cannot get rid of SOLVED
- optics are bad positioned (al least for my eyes), probably need to order some diopter lens-but i can see pretty good like this (if i modify the angle i can see more clear) ... miss adjustment from ev100!!
- hot they get really hot.
- receivers seem to have some weird cutoff / black interruptions when receiving signal is weak - random behaviour not seen in dvr recording => must be DSP chip cutting off signal (stupid) should be fixed asap via firmware, receivers should be continuously connected
- red color/magenta needs adjustment (hdmi input suffering greatly)
- receivers must have some un-shielded side - in PIT mode i could receive (minor image glimpse) without antennas from 3m passing 2 walls

Positive things :
- receivers seem to be more sensitive than my ev100 and ev800 (in pit mode with a patch i have clear image through walls-not the case/difficult with other googles.)
- image is nice but it think shape is distorted / scaled probably
- comfortable - had to put the thick foam and still not enough.

Lipo provided :
- used for about an hour before beeping alarm started. i stopped dvr rec and alarm stopped.
- doesn't go more than 760mAh during charge .. so not more than 3.5 wh (kind of useless to ask for 2A usb port!! ) still to be tested by someone else.
i'll be makin...Continue Reading

This is the 1/2A control line model that I promised to build for my son upon his first solo flight. The airplane is based on Dave Kingmans 1/2A Cubby. The wing is a generous 25 of sheet balsa painstakingly sanded into the shape of a proper airfoil. The landing gear is held on by a rubber band and has been elongated to give the pilot a fighting chance to land intact. I also took the liberty of using a nylon engine mount from an old Sterling Model's Beginner Series kit to speed up the build. I got it this far in less than 24 hours working at - for me - lightning speed. If I can get the bell crank, control horn, and lead lines in this weekend it will be ready to fly.

we are surrounded by them.
we could not live without them.

but, do we have an idea of what they are, and how they do what they do?
searching, i found this, that was very enlightening.
i hope it will be to you too.
or at least add something to what you already knew:
