Since I'm actually using this blog space for something useful,I thought I'd add some info on my converted Guillows Fairchild 24.

The build and more pics are in the Guillows Fairchild 24 thread started by Konrad.

I built this craft as a practice run before I started in on the HL Super Cub kit. The blue covering is AeroFilm (SolarFilm) and the white accents are sign vinyl.

I originally had three servos crammed in there for Rudder, Elevator, and ailerons. The ailerons worked well, but I've since taken the aileron servo out and fixed the ailerons in place. It now flies R/E/T. I'm using GWS IPS 5:1, IIRC and a Pixie 7 esc. Batteries are 3s 250 mAh ETECs.

I just finished re-doing my wing mounts to repair some accumulated wear, and added some N numbers that were cut by Callie Graphics. Will post updated pics soon (eventually) .

Was at a meeting with the Italian company Galileo Aeronautica the other day. These guys got some serious toys! Also a pic of the Meggitt Banshee airial target drone. Used to work on those in the Norwegian Navy a few years ago. Really miss those days. (fast planes, women, cars etc. )

Well, I haven't flown any RC planes yet. Although I have a couple of great pilots that are having a blast with this new job.

The last of my recent eBay frenzy has now arrived. It is a Golden Eagle kit from Craft Air. The newspaper filler in the box is dated sometime in October, 1984, so she's not quite an antique yet.

I'll need to finish up the Windfree before I dive into this one

Painted and with decor, my FunJET weighs now exactly 567g RTF (that's exactly 20oz). Strong wind or no wind - the FunJET really is fun to fly.

Since my last blog entry alot of water has passed under the old bridge. Here are some of my latest projects!

For the past several weeks I have been testing the new Falcon 3D helicopter offered by Hobby-Lobby Intl. of Brentwood, Tennessee. This new helicopter will be geared towards those that want to get into helicopter flying on a limited budget while still being able to have a Mini sized helicopter that's capable of 3D flight. The street price is expected to be around the $299.00 price range and will be ready to fly out of the box! I will include pictures and dimensions and will try to answer your questions should they arise.

Here are the specifications for the Falcon 3D Helicopter.


* Main rotor diameter: 630mm 24.8"
* Tail rotor diameter: 152mm 5.98"
* Length: 670mm 26.37"
* Weight: 530g 18.69 Oz


The Falcon 3-D comes in a very attractive box that not only protects the helicopter but will also serve as a carrying case if you like, it even has a handle on the top. It is well packaged in foam, which should protect it from anything but a Gorilla deliveryman. The kit contains the following parts.

1. The helicopter and blade holder, 30 Amp brushless speed controller, brushless speed 400 class motor with heat sink, 6-channel micro receiver and heading hold gyro. Four micro servos to control pitch, yaw, rudder, and collective.

2. 6-Channel Transmitter with two switches and two rotary knobs to control pitch....Continue Reading

Who would have thought when the aeroace/xtwin poped up on RCG last summer that a year later this $30 "toy" would spawn its own forum? I dont know what it is about this plane that makes it so appealing to so many, but one things for sure, I'm an aeroace addict. Since I first got one last september I've built about 10 planes to put the AA electronics in and I've gone through 4-5 stock aircraft. In fact I'm pretty sure that the building frenzy that quickly followed my first aeroace aquisition was directly responsible for a steady decline in my fall term grades.

The thing that I love the most about this little plane is how its allowed me to introduce so many people to this hobby. I figure I've let at least 100 people fly my aeroaces (I ran two classes for 7th and 8th graders this spring, and used the aeroace to teach about aviation and vehicle design). Its amazing how basically anyone can pick up the controller and after bouncing off a few walls be able to make the plane do what they want. It captures the joy of RC modeling in its purest form and I feel it's the best $30 you will every spend on this hobby.

DN Power Micro-Controlled LiPo/Li-Lon Balance Charger w/ LCD Display

Product Features:
1. Input voltage: DC 11V~15V. The working electric current is less than 6A when it is charged in full load. The current of the fuse is 10A,which could prevent short circuit.
2. The charge current is 0.2A~2.0A and the adjusting step is 0.2A,which can be set by the buttons on the board.
3. Controlled by 4 separated internal micro computers. charge 1S-4S battery separately. no like other serial charging + balancer setup on the market. More efficient.
4. 4 separated JST style charging ports, one general charging port.
5. Big LCD display. real-time displays voltage and charging processing clearly and separately.
6. Low voltage protection. charger won't charge any cell if voltage is lower than 2.7v.
7. Automatically stop charging when it's done. A buzzer will call.
8. 4 separated parallel charging circuits ensure your battery 100% fully charged. Higher efficiency.
9. Charge mode of the balanced parallel connection
A. charge in parallel connection for one single cell or four single cells at one time
B. charge in parallel connection for a pile of two series-wound lithium cells or two piles of two series-wound lithium cells at one time
C. charge in parallel connection for a pile of three series-wound lithium cells or one single lithium cell at one time
D. charge in parallel connection for a pile of four series-wound lithium cells
10. Working rating: -20 ~ 60 C
11. Fully circuit protection: protect the charger and battery even when connect the battery or the power supply reversely.
12. General charging port will allow you charge any lipo battery which has balanering leads.

The day before I was to leave for Maryland I was sitting back flying w/ my old man. I've still got him on buddy box w/ the slow stick which explains the chairs! Anyway while we were in the front yard kicking back my 7 day old Ikarus Edge 540T was in peril. It managed to get moved right under the garage door. Stupid I know... The door got shut and the foamy was destroyed I ordered a new Yak 54 from hobby lobby and got it together tonight. It's ready except for the aileron servo, which was crushed by the garage door. I traced this one out so I dont have to pay 50 bucks to get an airframe again.

And if you're wondering, the A6M and other print in the back of the Yak pic are two entries for an art show/contest back in Ohio.
