Work in progess... waiting for the trashcan

The new Gemfan 1635 (40mm) props are now available worldwide on Gearbest and Banggood. They are available in 3 and 4 blade options with 1mm centre hole for 06xx, 07xx, 08xx motors like on the snapper7, mobula7, trashcan beta 75pro 2 and 1.5mm holes for 1103 and larger motors like on the beta75x and fullspeed tinyleader.

I've ordered in 1mm in 3 and 4 blade to try. I'm guessing by the popularity of these small brushless quads that they'll go in and out of stock fairly regularly so you may need to shop around.

Here are the links below:

Thanks to Lonny I have extra floats for my second modification. My land floats work great with stearable front wheels and fixed aft main wheels but I want a set for water ops. The full scale Maule has longer floats in the front and some of our models (mine is heavy and has an aft CG) need more buoyancy aft of the step. So Im experimenting with a plug to extend the stock floats. Here is a 3.25 inch plug extenstion. The step will be in the same location but there will be more floatation buoyancy forward and aft of the step. The plug extension will be from Home Depot and its a magenta/light purple shade. It can be wrapped with white trim Monocote and 3 M 20X packing tape for strength and surface protection. The strut mounting plates will be relocated to the original positions for land/water swap out.

Ill be posting this in the float flyers section for input as well as the wheeled forum....Continue Reading

In this video I step up my RC Game and Maiden my Freewing BAe Hawk T1 70mm EDF Jet!

Freewing BAe Hawk T1 70mm EDF Jet Red Arrow Maiden Flight (4 min 21 sec)

You will see me discuss how this is my first attempt to fly a 6S EDF Jet, I will show the flight battery I used, the maiden flight, and you will get to see some interesting extras along with a battery test at the end.

Here are my Review Notes For This Awesome 70mm EDF Jet:

- It flies incredibly well!
- The flight times appear to be very good so long as you aren't too heavy on the throttle.
- The build is easy with very little gluing required
- The airframe is bigger and more attractive than I expected
- Detailed pilot and cockpit dashboard
- Large battery bay to accommodate lots of battery options
- Very bright LED lights
- Good quality flaps installed
- An excellent all around EDF value for the price

- The only real con is needing to modify it to ensure debris doesn't get sucked up into the fan, but that wasn't too bad and clearly the jet flies great!
- This flight went so well I want to buy more EDF Jets like the Freewing L-39 and the E-flite F-16!

Rather than taking the Mini Telemaster out for a romp in the snow I opted to stay in and keep plugging away on the Tuabe. Next, I'll sheet the bottom, opting for 1/16" rather than 1/8" from the landing gear back, and then tackle the cockpit sheeting. I guess I'd better look at placing that order with Sig for dope and Koverall in the near future.

The above link will take you to the post that has more info on how to make this handle. It is an adaptation of handles that I have made for the Apprentice, Valiant, and Maule.

Where can I find the plans for this seaplane?

Hello guys.
Seems as we get older there are less hours in a day. I was in the middle of building a SIG Riser 100 when I realized this.
So I am and will be selling a bunch of stuff in the next few months (I hope). I have loads of tools used only for building
and maintaining planes. A bunch of rolls of covering, what did I plan on doing with all of them ? ? A boat load of props
and some Airtronics (gone ,,,Sanwa still in business ) receivers. A SD10G and SD6G TXs I will need to continue
flying. I don't know if the Riser will get finished or not. I am an AirForce of one person. Flying time is the highest priority.

I've completed my review and DVR for day and night flying at the link below. After reviewing all the 2s (and 3s) "whoops" it's nice to say the the tinyhawk is still really relevant given the excellent design and solid tune for most users out of the box. I didn't test the RTF kit but that sound like a great option for someone wanting to dip their toes into the hobby.
