One of my favorite flyer is the VQ250 V1 (VectorQuad) that I built a while back and because I don't fly FPV, it's just too small to fly it LOS. So , I decided using it's components to build a larger platform to better see it LOS flying.

Original VQ250 V1 dimension:
Rear motor to Front - 6 inches
Motor 1 to 2 - 8 inches

Modified Platform:
Rear motor to Front - 10.5 inches
Motor 1 to 2 -10.5 inches

Specs:
Mini KK2.1.5 RC911 R4 SL-MIX / T-MOTORS MT2208-10 1850 KV / 20A MAYTECH-BL HELI / FRSKY V8R7-II- TARANIS PLUS TX / GF MAIN FRAME W/ CF BOOMS / 8 INCHES COMPOSITE PROPS / TGY-210DMH SERVO

Here are three projects I did in parallel, the UFO Invader was themed on the old Centuri rocket kit, the Fireball XL-5 was as close as I could get while still having a decent glider and the Maurader is a top intake cruise missile styled model. All are around 10.5-12.5 oz rtf, use 2.6" tubing, and MPF and are 20" wingspans and 32-33" long.

Yep Les Amis,
Je ne m'y attendais pas, quelle bonne surprise ! J'ai aujourd'hui en test la petite caméra ONEPAA X2000 qui n'a rien à envier aux Runcam 2 et autres caméras de ce type. Le rendu d'image est très propre, l'utilisation tres facile et les accesoires nombreux pour pouvoir la fixer sur beaucoup de supports et engins différents. Malheureusement, j'ai découvert un peu tard le VTX dédié, le ONEPAA FXT, mais je compte bien le commander car c'est pour moi un accessoire indispensable à cette petite caméra . En bref, je pense que cette petite X200 trouvera sa place dans mes prochaines vidéos !!!

Onepaa X2000 Caméra Full HD FPV et bien PLUS encore ! Quelle bonne surprise !!! (22 min 22 sec)


NOTATAZ : 19/20 Très bon rapport qualité prix !

Les + : Bon rendu Vidéo et Photo, Gyroscope incroyable, nombreux accessoires, Nombreuses possibilités (FPV 5.8gHz, Wifi, HDMI )
Les - : les boutons sont un peu expsés en cas de crash en FPV, sinon pas grand chose à dire.

Looking to buy a used SkyMule rc plane.
Posted by KatrinaRosen | Apr 20, 2018 @ 02:08 PM | 1,220 Views
When the engine on the left wing broke in mid-flight, the pilots of Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 had to deal with a 737 that suddenly banked left on its own, well past any angle they would use. The plane was pitched at an angle of more than 40 degrees for a few unnerving seconds before it leveled out and began an emergency descent, National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt told reporters Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Greetings my friends; survived tax season...so not a lot of progress on the build. Have been keeping the 3D printer running practically nonstop. Printed a significant number of deck equipment parts. I’ve printed the base and wedge for the rocket launchers and four roll-off rack frames (each took 13 hours and 20 minutes). Currently printing the engine room hatch frame. (24+ hour print).

This guide will go through the process of combining flaps with flight modes. I can confirm that this works with the new (black) Dx6 and Dx7 and I assume it can work with any of the new "black" transmitters that have Spektrum's newer UI. However, I know that this trick is NOT POSSIBLE using a Spektrum Dx6e and I suspect it might not be possible on the Dx8e, but I haven't confirmed this yet.

So, what's the point of linking flaps with flight modes? Good question.
Have you ever had a plane where you deploy the flaps and the plane dives or climbs dramatically? Have you ever deployed flaps (or flaperons) and noticed your plane rolls a bit left or right, but flies fine with flaps up? Having flight modes linked to flaps can help you take care of these issues in-flight in real time without the need to land and go through your Tx settings.

How does it work?
By combining the FLAPS and FLIGHT MODE (which I will abbreviate as FM) onto a single switch, you can set independent trims for each flight mode and flap setting. This means that each flap condition (Flaps Up/Half Flaps/Full Down) will have independent trim from the other flap conditions.

How do we set this up?
I made a video and you can watch it as I go step-by-step through the process. There was no script and I had to hold the phone myself while navigating the menus, so it's not the best, but it will tell you what you need to know.
