Just enjoying nice summer evening with my Extreme Flight 70" Extra 300 EXP. Video footage taken from different perspectives during 2017 on several flights, but I managed only now to compile it into a full video. This is nothing extra special, but haven't seen too many onboard videos from aerobatics planes lately.

Announcement: In my cockpit app FlightZoomer, I will shortly release the next update, which will offer an interactive checklist. Recreating the experience of a full scale pilot, a voice (generated by the app) is reading the first checklist item. After you confirm it by saying "checked", the app reads the next checklist item. This way the whole checklist (one per flight phase) can be worked through in an extremely intuitive and efficient way!

The checklist items can flexibly be maintained in a textfile.

A video, that demonstrates the ground breaking capability will follow shortly.

In case you dont know my cockpit app, you might have a look here:
FlightZoomer 3 is released! (3 min 39 sec)


For more details about my app, I would like to direct you to my homepage:

No tuning, No HD Camera, No New Parts = No Fear !!

It is amazing to fly with no abandon. Didn't worry about bent props or crashing and learnt a few tricks in the process. The SQ12 is not as nice as the Caddx Turtle but I still like the rushed feeling with the lens modification. If only Caddx would have a better lens.

I also got a little dog-revenge as this quad has been bitten twice!

Shame I left the timestamp on but at least we know this video has not been sped up or slowed down!!

SQ12 with lens mod & VIFLY FPV Sick Run - No HD 🐢 Just Pure Fun (2 min 7 sec)


Equipment Used:
ViFly R130 with Gemfan 3052

FX707 is ready !

Yes I had a busy Saturday ..

9g servos are glued in , control surfaces working .
Orange Rx is giving issue ( might be the short antenna )
Battery used to get CG close is a 700mAh
Pictures included ..

Windy as all outdoors today ( howling wind )
But ready for chuck testing .

What would I do different ..
The control rods - I used some sleeved rods and they blow chunks ..
And you find these things out after they are glued in .. So yeah , I would definitely do the control rods differently .
Other than that , the build was surprisingly easy ..
Orange Rx , going to solder a extension to it . Taranis is throwing up low signal warnings about 1 meter from the FX707 ..
So pretty much ready for some Chuck Tests .
Weight = 222 grams as is ready for chuck testing ( with battery ) .
Oh that short nose ...

UMX Whipit

Also done .. Peg is glued in .
I have done some pull testing on the peg and looks to be good .
Also got low to the ground and did a very short glide test and looks promising .

Today is too windy , but both gliders are ready for some glide tests .

I was watching The Man in the High Castle season 3 and that German SST design really got to me with the little forward and rear end top mounted canards and the paint scheme, so last night I designed and put this together and then this morning I painted and hand cut the vinyl trim and applied and it turned out pretty nice. It's got a 23 inch wingspan and is around 34 in Long, 11 oz rtf. there are only a few grainy stills from the show so I had some leeway on how I could arrange things to make it flyable and still capture the basic look of the model, I haven't put the plates on the bottom of the engine shrouds underneath because I'm not sure how those are going to interfere with control surface Effectiveness and I want to fly it without them first

disclaimer the swastikas are not any political statement they're just part of the paint scheme.

Today was finally the maiden flight of my Fly Model Extra 330SC 91" 50cc electric powered.
This is my first experience with a 50cc size plane and I felt a huge difference from my 30cc birds. Plane flies wonderfully, almost no coupling during KE flight (just a little aileron mixing required but minimal).
Power system is working good but the Rotomax 50cc is getting too hot for my liking (even after rewind), ESC remains cold. Propping down is not an option as the thrust: weight ratio is already at the bottom of my preferred range so I may try to do some baffling to force airflow specifically over the motor.
We are approaching the hot season here so we can reach close 40C (104F) at noon.

I had to stop on the 3rd flight as the foam tail wheel ripped during a normal landing. I have just replaced it with a rubber wheel from a spare tail gear I had at home.
Ronaldo

Full setup:
  • Turnigy Rotomax 50cc rewound to 198kV
  • Castle Creations Phoenix Edge 160A HV ESC
  • Aerostar 23x10 wood electric propeller
  • 12S 5000mAh 70c (CHL G+ Graphene series)
  • YEP 20A SBEC (all servos running on 8V)
  • Scorpion RX Backup Guard
  • (5) JX PDI-HV7246MG 46KG Metal Gear High Voltage Digital Coreless Standard Servo

Received from Laser design. Complete roll of plans and laser cut balsa. Very nice. No hardware. But this is a simple design plane.
I do not know yet, what my build speed will be. Its been about 8 years ago, i built from kit. I have been flying ARF's. I still have half the fuselage of my orignal , Lazy bee that lasted thru several rebuilds after crashing.

OK folks, I got the bug for a big gasser, and bought a 91" Laser by EF. It is going to be powered by a RCGF 70cc twin. Has MKS 777s all around, and a JR 922 rx system. The build is a little slow, as I want it to all be right. All servos in, Motor mounted, and ready for electronics and landing gear. Tail wheel is on and working. In this up to my ears, so it better fly good. More later

After long waiting, he finally arrived at my door :-). It took him long time to arrive.
Almost 50 days, express was too slow . What to say about this tiny brushless whoop?
It is really amazing, the best whoop for this money only 79$. It fly great 19000kv brushless
motors gives great punch, lot of power and smooth flight.
On this little quad nice features I like is Smart Audio so I can very easily change PID and freq on my Taranis QX7.
Frame is build of nice plastic material and can suffer lot of impacts. Great whoop for indoor and outdoor calm
weather flights. Highly recommended.

You can get this on Banggood.com only 79$
