Hey Everyone! Here is the first video on the Xtra Vector

The Xtra Vector is a nearly indestructible plane. Perfect for beginner 3d pilots looking for a first Epp 3d foamie kit. It's a CRAZY beast on 3s for those pilots who just want to wring it out! Cannot wait to fly this plane again

plane was flown with the following power with a 3s 450mah battery: https://twistedhobbys.com/power-comb...pitts-tmw-tws/

Enjoy the video

This is Bomb Drop Chaos from last year's Warbirds Over Whatcom event. The next one is coming up July 21-21, so join the fun if you can at Bell Air R/C Flyers Club in Ferndale, WA!

I have been making videos at this event for the past several years and it is always a lot of fun to get out and see the RC Warbirds of all kinds do their thing.

In this video you will see primarily WWI Warbirds buzzing the target and dropping bombs. My favorite is the Curtiss P-6E Hawk Biplane.

I've just completed a comprehensive initial review of the Hawk 5 focusing in on stock betaflight settings, initial flights, recommended changes and all the parts available. This is the best RTF quad I've ever flown with the tune to match.

This is currently in stock at Gearbest the time of writing (4 July)

Alright, I was kinda impressed by those ammo box battery caddies I've seen so far, so decided to make one myself/for myself, especially when you're CNC machinist and happens to find some time for own projects The one you actually can see is still just a prototype and needs some modification (mostly in dimensions) but I can see it working out pretty well.
Material: Polycarbonate 3mm

I started several years ago to build model boats, decided to build static display models, with focus on interior detail. Recently started building again. more pictures later.

Despite my stock props being balanced, symmetrical, and free of defects they always seem to loud and to not have a lot of punch at full throttle. I've been told get wood props countless times, but I was out and my CZ Yak was making me cringe when I heard the advice yet again. This time I listened.

The video is short. It was a hot day. I had a bad summer cold going on. The bugs were horrible and my son/camera man stole my hat that I cover with bug spray when I fly. I chose a battery (E-Flite 6S 2900) that some one here on RCG shipped to me for free about 6 or 7 years ago when I was into helis to keep the power low and the esc cooler. Amazingly that battery has a little sag but still holds a full charge and the cells are all good. Doing battery maintenance on all batteries twice a year does pay off! Despite all that, I loved the flight and the next two as well despite my son going back to the car to sit in the AC with my hat. He volunteered to come with me and take video without me asking, so I took him for a nice lunch afterwards. Apparently he wants to learn video editing, so I am helping him with that too.

Taking a session to learn how to drop in starting with a spiral move and then when more confident rolling in as smoothly as possible.

Using a new lens on the Quelima SQ12 which give a rushing feeling which I really like. There has been no processing with Adobe Premier Pro.

Couple more photos of my delta wing. Learned a couple of lessons. Bottom is perfectly flat so next time might use symmetrical shape. See how this one flies. Might use some sort of software to design ribs but that is too work intensive for me. Probably use a single center fuse rather than two.

Strapping tape ironed on seems t adhere to epp ok, if not then will use hinges for elevons.
Made motor mount from couple layers of 3mm plywood. Want to be able to dismount motor mount easily. Plastic motor mount will be bolted to plywood.
Elevons are very rigid. Used a carbon rod and laminated them.
Not too much more work to do now.

Greetings my friends. I’ve been silent for almost a month now, not because I wasn’t doing anything but because I have been doing a lot of support activities for the build (as well as taking care of my family). I’ve been learning a lot about the 3D printing process I have employed and discovered several potential pit-falls with using PLA material. Example, I recently purchased a new (to me) truck and wanted to make a custom cell phone holder. I measured and created the 3D CAD model. I printed out the part and put it into the truck. It sat out in the sun all day, and when I got in later that day, I tried putting my cell phone in the newly printed part, but lo and behold, the part had deformed. So, doing some more research, I learned “PLA has a relatively low glass transition temperature (typically between 111 and 145 F). This makes it fairly unsuitable for high temperature applications. Even things like a hot car in the summer could cause parts to soften and deform.”, just like I experienced. As many of the parts I’m printing are on the deck [1:12 scale PT-Boat] and would be exposed to direct sunlight, I’ve decided that I should suspend printing any additional parts in PLA and instead use ABS. This creates a different problem, when ABS is heated up (to extrude through the 3D printer nozzle) it outgasses fumes which are unpleasant to most users. So, because my printer is located inside our living area, I need to come up...Continue Reading
