Tip #27 - Volantex Ranger G2 Setup - Control Surface Deflection & Flaps

Here is a link to the Video:

I have the Volantex Ranger G2 setup pretty well now and it has good Aileron and Elevator Control.
I'm also happy with the Flap Setting on the Flaperons.
In this Video I'm going to provide my setting on this Plane so it will give you a good Baseline to start with.
These Setting should provide you with a successful Maiden Flight of this plane.

The measurements on the Control Surfaces were measured at the Control Horns to make sure there was no flexing of the Control Surface when actuating.

Bought this to see one up close and put it in the air. I bought it off ebay and recieved it in 10 days( from China)

The X360 kit includes 370mm CF blades

Overall impression:
*Packages put together nicely. Made for faster build.
* Manual would have made it faster. (Hate looking at computer screens to long) < that stinks.
*Fiberglass canopy< beautiful lightweight canopy ( Blue is on the way)
*Ugly orange plastic blades < Really???
*CF main blades look to be nice.

Parts fit:
*Parts seem to fit well.
(*!*You do need a set of snap ring pliers and a good set of Allen key tools.
* Soft screws. (normal like align hardware)
*Carbon Fiber frames are nice
* Kit took about 3 hours to build. It took me a but longer but I couldn't fine my good set of Allen keys.

I'm going to finish a few things tomorrow. Glue up the boom supports, check battery size, updates to come. Electronics to arrive in a few days.

Anyone fly these or plan on ordering the kit. Imput? Thoughts?

Happy flying.

I'm scratch building a 3lb (1.5kg) twin pusher rc plane. I've flown it once already, buy am stumped as to why the props aren't spinning at about the same RPM. I've tried setting the throttles ranges for the ESCs already, to little avail. Here's the setup:

Motor (x2): Detrum BM2815A-1100KV
Prop (x2): APC 6x6
ESC (x2): Detrum 30A
Battery: 2200mAh, 3s, 50C

On some does, when both motors are at full throttle, they have about the same RPM. Other days they are way off. Any clue as to why this is?

Yeah ! I graded this a PITA ( Pain In The Abacus )
Well , I am now upgrading the rating to Pain In The Asp !

I did go out to maiden !
And my CG was too far back , but I had no other batteries that would fit .
Also , I did mention the lack of thrust from the factory prop . 0ooooh Yeah Baby ! ( What thrust ? )

So I came home and cut the factory prop off .
Fit a bullet prop adaptor and cut a 5x3 down to 4x3 as the 5x3 was loading the motor too much .

Problems !
I read a few comments where people talk about the motor coming lose .. Yeah , I had that .
Half a flight and the motor mounts came lose .
Tightened them and then gave the screws / mount a dose of cyno . ( Cyno for model airplanes is like Penicillin for humans )

I also went thru my battery collection and found a larger heavier battery that just fits .. ( Just )
It does no effect the CG that much ! Really need a battery that can be pushed further forward in the FUSE ! ( If any one from HK reads this )
Ps / Why bring a model to market ? When no battery fits .

Anyways , now the motor is making some sort of grinding noise around mid throttle .
Seriously , for me the Ezio 800 has just been a box full of problems .. Problems that just wont go away .

So next time I go out , .....
1) Heavier battery
2) A prop that produces thrust
3) I may have to go to 100% Expo for the elevator

So after some recent discussion with some folks I thought it was a good opportunity to show the damage my FT Simple Cub has taken from some crashes. Felt it was a good true testament to how durable these foamboard/Flitetest really are. So here you can see all the damage that has occurred to the FT Simple Cub.

New motor has been installed and the power pod has been rebuilt. All that is left is reinstall the receiver, double check my balance and battery placement, and she'll be ready to go again.
