Halloa guys & girls

in case you follow my YT channel, you probably know I like the GepRC brand.. I've had quite a nr. of quads / frames from that company.. So far they have all had a smart design and the materials used were of good quality (probably an understatement)..
And today.. I came across a new 3 inch quad that comes with a Runcam Split 1080P recorder Stock :|
Not only that.. the frame has a really smart design IMHO.. It has more room-to-spare in it then most 5 inch quads have

Link to this new quad: GepRC CX Cygnet 145 BNF or PNF

Some pictures then...

One of my favourite RC tug boat it's huge!!!!!

I am currently assembling a Reichard kakadu, that I have had for a while. I am not an experienced builder , I have built a couple of planes from plans, and a number of RTFs . I am however struggling a bit with the elevator assembly on my kakadu.

I cannot seem to get the elevator bowden cable to align well enough with the control horn I want to put on the elevator. The angle seems all wrong. I have put the cable inside a sleeve to reduce latency, and I wonder if this may be the problem.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Cheers

Came in the mail a few days ago , some 2mm Bullet prop adaptors ..
So I put one on the GB mystery motor ..

3s Battery
7x3.5 Propeller

11.940 RPM - 4.9Amp - 3s battery just over 11v under load

Motor ran cool .
So the 7x3.5 is ok and the 7x4.5 is too much on 3s ..

2mm prop adaptor .
Was a 4 pack and 3 out of 4 were ever so slightly to small to fit comfortably .
Lucky for me one was just right and fit shaft perfectly .
Prop adaptor runs Purrrrrrfect .
So I would suggest if some one is interested in the mystery motor , a 2mm Bullet prop adaptor might be the way to go .

Glue & Fly Series F-22 Micro V2 on 3S - Tuning Session #1



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2JQzCDcMvw

Well, I just couldn't get the Elevator twitchiness out to suit my flying style.
It appears the problem is the Emax 2.5g Servos just do not have the granularity needed.
I had to move the Servo Control Rods to the inner most hole of the Servos Control Arms.
I also had to move the Control Horn Connections to the outer most hole on the Control Horns.
Finally, I think I can now get the granularity on the Elevator Control that I want.
Now, I just have to fine tune the Elevator Dual-Rates and Aileron Dual-Rates to exactly how I like them ;-)
This is Session #1 of the Tuning Process. I believe one more Flight Session will have it ;-)

Build, Fly, Crash, Repair, Rinse & Repeat!

Happy Flying!

My Custom SR48 so far
Posted by DismayingObservation | Nov 13, 2018 @ 07:10 PM | 985 Views
...and revisit a damaged model at a later date. Works every time.

After doing precisely that regarding the damaged little Harbor Freight P-51, the damage isn't all that bad. The canopy suffered a couple of wrinkles and the underside of the cowl area is little more than a "scraped chin," easily repaired. I thought for sure that I had destroyed the model. It hit asphalt, but I might have been able to pull back the elevator far enough to avoid little bits of EPO scattered all over.

Instead, I do believe I can fix it.

First things first and that will be the removal of the wing spar and restoring the dihedral. Once I attach a new prop and collet, I'll try again.

I was going to take it apart last night and now I'm glad I didn't.

As for the crash damaged homebuilt "Sparrow," I'm told that I should have it back by Saturday, repaired and with additional rudder area. I also have a bit more info on the glider in the photo below.

It was built by a gentleman named Arlo Larson, an engineer whose most recent work includes the development of both fiberglass and carbon fiber blades for wind turbines. My friend Buzz who gave it to me never flew it; he saw it cleaned up and flown for the first time this past Saturday. I solved the sticky folding prop blade problem easily enough by hogging out the mounting holes with a hobby knife.

I also have two gliders by Mr. Larson, one of which is an incomplete "Bird of Time." I can say with confidence that Mr. Larson is a top notch builder! A canopy for that multicolored model is being whittled out by Buzz.
