The 60 amp Aerostar has advantages over the stock Turbo Timber Eflite 50 amp ESC:
1. With an extra channel you can reverse the rotation of the motor/prop for reverse thrust during surface operations.
2. The brake can be programmed on to stop the prop from windmilling. This reduces drag but also allows the ESC to go into reverse. I have not been able to turn the brake on for the stock Eflite 50 amp ESC
3. The ESC is rated for 60 amps which might be needed for 4S and larger props

The Aerostar has two leads. The 3 wire lead gets plugged into the throttle channel 1 for the AR636 that came with my Turbo Timber (TT). The second lead gets plugged into channel 5 (gear channel) and switch C is programmed to say “Forward thrust” for position C0 and 1 and “Reverse Thrust” for position C2. I use F0,1,2 for low to high rates and expo. The flaps are on channel 6 (Aux 1) and SAFE Self Level is on Aux 2 or channel 6. Using the Digital Switch Setup I have programmed position B0 and 1 as Self Level On and B2 as Off. Switch C0 and C1 are programmed for forward thrust and C2 as reverse thrust. I have not programmed in any Flight Modes but may after a few test and trim flights....Continue Reading

Any help guys?

Watched it in a manely empty IMAX theater. The audience was 1/2 of 1% of the usual audience size. When the flying part ended, some left. There was no-one under 50. For someone following the space program long before SpaceX, it was the same as many other documentaries we watched for the last 40 years. For those who just discovered the space program because of SpaceX, it should be exciting.

The sharper footage was manely confined to the liftoff, while the rest was the familiar 16mm & TV footage shown in split screens. They didn't use the slow scan footage of the 1st step but instead showed the view looking down from the window. Buzz's egress was the only thing shown in slow scan footage.

The 65mm footage was much smoother than expected, while lens aberrations of the time were greatly magnified on the big screen. The 16mm footage was much grainier than we've seen it before. Those of us who have viewed 8k scans of 35mm are familiar with how grainy film is at that resolution, so it's definitely not a cinematic effect.

The only revelation for the lion kingdom was new footage Buzz took of a solar eclipse from the capsule. He couldn't hold the camera steady enough to capture the corona, but he described it.

After the ordeal of driving 2000 miles & camping overnight to see 2 minutes of solar eclipse, masses of tourists are just going to take a rocket flight to the right place in space to see a solar eclipse, any time they want.

Like the previous HBX, I was given this old nitro Revo.

After several cleanups of the car, I tried to wake the electronics. Two servos were stuck, so I took them all apart and cleaned and greased them up, then did a light overhaul of the rest of the car but I never got around to actually running the engine and the car has been warming the shelf.

I even tried to sell it but offers in the $50 region just made me tired. Eventually I realised I did not want to run nitro. I left that on my RC aircraft 20 years ago.

This weekend I decided to rip out the glow engine parts and embark on an electric conversion.

Lets start with the R3 ...

Went out for some trim flights , CG was too far back and the wind picked up as I launched and the end result was a broken nose cone ..

Repaired and strengthened , CG moved forward !

The R3 glides really well .. CG is still too far back ..
Also to fast a landing broke the glue for the vertical fin .

More repairs + re-enforcement ( fiberglass )
Also a larger battery to move that CG forward , and ......
The R3 is starting to look a little 2nd hand , weight is now 120 grams for flying weight ...

Thats what you get for scratch building ! ( Virgin territory ) ..

Another thread with some dimensions , just in case anyone wants to try a cheap HLG build ! ...

Started a Sub micro HLG , be with a V911 board ..
I was sitting here , it was warm , I was bored .. And it struck me how to mount the V911 board !
So ! Boredom forced my hand !

Also this morning , that wing I ordered was delivered ... ( Another Project )
I put that wing away for now ... ( Later ) Other things to do !

Weather not too good now so made up some “nice to have mods” for SST. Based on experience with regular Timber.

For picking up the loaded model I’ve installed a retractable handle. It can be used to hoist the float plane in and out of the water/weeds/docking area. Also for hanging from the ceiling. Coat hanger and bends or wheel collars.

The folding wing storage and transport mod has been around since Orville folded his bicycle for Wilbah! Use an old necktie or parachute cord and bungee to keep the wings against and on top of the fuse. Be careful that the anti collision red strobe lense does not dent the trailing edge flaps. The Ace hardware folding step stool can be used to sit butt, stand on or invert SST for feeding Lipos to the belly.

What could be better than the two best allied fighters together in one place. Sit back and enjoy the sight of these two warbirds.

Stock rudder linkage throws are good enough for 180 turn arounds. Nose lights are nice and bright! Here is a short video.
