Last year I started a logbook of incidents I have had while flying model planes. It was titled "Incidents and Accidents," but I never defined those terms. It turns out, as far as I know, AMA hasn't made a clear distinction either. Perhaps it really doesn't matter, as long as you report any injuries caused to another person or persons while flying an RC model, or damage to property. I added the NTSB definition of those terms, as well as a copy of the 2018 AMA Insurance Summary and claim information, to the logbook introduction here. From that information I defined what I mean when I refer to an incident or accident in my logbook.

I hope we are all working on making our flying experience as safe as possible, so that we remain free of accidents - and incidents, too!

So far there are a variety of ways to install a diversity module such as the Eachine Pro 58 and and the RJXHobby . There are two different types of goggles one that has three wire and five wire camera setup. I had initially thought they were divided by IOS vs Android but I opened more up and found another 5 wire setup in an IOS goggle. I could not find any other way to differentiate the two. These are the three ways to add diversity. WARNING THESE MODIFICATIONS MAY DESTROY YOUR GOGGLES CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN RISK

Three Wire
The three wire setup is really easy to install diversity. The wire is standard camera wiring setup yellow, red, and black. I measured 5v with my multi meter (Please double check this on your goggles it may be different). It's a simple splice and connect with single pin duponts at the end to connect to the diversity module. Once installed you press the change view button and the built in receiver will turn off preventing and interference. Unfortunately you lose the front camera which I found to be a nice luxury feature when having to quickly fix a lose battery strap or tighten a loose antenna.

Five Wire
The five wire setup is a little more difficult since now you have to start soldering and the camera has to stay connected. There are multiple locations you can tap into 5v especially on the bluetooth module they even have some areas labeled for 5v and ground. For video signal you have to connect to the last wire on the camera connector. It's on the...Continue Reading

There has been several discussions/threads about the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) effectiveness as a CBO (Community Based Organization) and lobbyist trying to protect the R/C Airplane hobby. The general consensus is that they are not effective and people are discussing why not. I finally added to one of the threads.

*****

The inability to tell people "NO" is why Washington doesn't pay attention to the AMA.

Is the AMA a CBO worth inviting to ... important meetings where future paths are decided?

Well ... I think back to the B-29 crash at "Wings-Over-Delaware-2014".
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...-Delaware-2014
(Apparently one of the four engines stuck in idle, and things went bad in "R/C-Time").
Along with the usual questions about could the pilot have detected the engine malfunction sooner, was the plane capable of being steered away from the spectators, decision to go airborne, etc...

There were also questions about, was the runway too close to the line of spectators, was the fence/netting strong enough to stop a runaway B-29?

At the AMA-EXPO in January 2015, I saw an AMA representative giving a speech to regional and club Safety-Officers and cornered him after his speech. I asked if the AMA could tell (force) a club to follow guidelines for distance-to-runway, or inspect an aircraft, or have a pilot demonstrate proficiency with emergency procedures, or ground a pilot who had crashed three...Continue Reading

My review of the Bugs 3 Mini brushless drone that also features acro mode. This is a fantastic and super fast drone though I would not advise flying in acro unless you add FPV to it.

Eachine EV900 FPS sample VIA HDMI cable (1 min 38 sec)


FPS = First Person Shooter ( gaming )
https://goo.gl/8hXKHv = Product page @ Banggood.com
Sent for review / testing by Banggood

Wow , I was sent the Eachine EV900 goggles for review / testing and one could no help but notice the HDMI connector ( and included HDMI cable )
So what is a boy to do ( a old boy )

I still play games ( and why not ) , so I connected the HDMI cable to my graphics card so I could play looking through the goggles .
The video sample provided is close to what my aging eyes see .. ( Which is far better than other goggles I have used without correction )
In fact I am very pleased with the color , and sharpness ..
The camera is @ 14x zoom so there is IQ loss , so bear that in mind . But it actually reproduces at this setting what my aging eyes see .

I spent way too much time playing with the goggles on ( lost track of time ) , not really sure how healthy it is as it leaves you some what detached from the real world which can be disorientating . ( We are talking hours here ) .

I also did some youtube ( VIDEO ) which was surprisingly good .. So if you had a small DVR-Player with HDMI , you could watch movies on the go .. The Eachine EV900 also has a headphone jack ( havent tried it yet ) , so you really could shut out the outside world if you wanted to .

Are the Eachine EV900 a replacement for your computer monitor = NO ! in no shape or form would I say so .. Could...Continue Reading

AwesomeFPV's Bobi 115 (3 min 24 sec)


Hello everyone welcome back.

In todays video I wanted to show you and review the AwesomeFPV Bobi 115mm Brushless quadcopter.

This little 2.5" micro brushless quadcopter is a ton of fun to fly. It has a great tune out of the box and all you need to do is install your favorite receiver and you are good to go. I would like to see a better camera on future models as both the camera quality and VTX range was below my expectations.

This is the Second Flight for the E-Flite Brave Night Flyer 1.2M BNF Basic RC Plane With AS3X Technology. In this video I fly the plane around doing some low passes, aileron rolls, and even do a loop. As you can see in the video, it is a good flyer once in the air. Even during the day, the lights were awesome!

E-flite Brave Night Flyer 1.2M BNF Basic RC Plane With AS3X Technology Second Flight (4 min 29 sec)

Here are my review notes for this Crop Duster RC Plane:

Pros:
- The lights are amazing on this E-flite Pawnee Brave Night Flyer
- It takes a 3S 2200 lipo
- It fits in my car, but just barely with the seats down
- It has a unique look in the air that captures your attention
- The plane flies really well once it is dialed in properly after the mods I mention in the cons section
- It is fairly easy to fly at night in pitch black

Cons:
- Even at the specified CG point and control surface recommendations, it did not fly level and smooth until I added bigger heavier wheels and pointed the elevator downward lower than recommended setting.
- There were numerous defects out of the box including a bad battery bay cover, a pilot that wasn't glued in properly, and an uneven horizontal stabilizer.
- The hardware that comes with this kit is extremely poor and should not be included in a kit at this price point. Much better screws should come with this kit.
- The poorly designed tailwheel makes ground handling a challenge that gets even worse over time
