DustOff #4 - Takeoff and Landing Practice with the XK DHC-2 Beaver A600 Airplane (9 min 36 sec)

Time to blow the Dust Off of my XK DHC-2 Beaver Airplane ;-)
It's been quite a while since I have flown this great flying little Plane so let's get it into the air ;-)
I thought I'd try some Landings and Takeoffs in some wind with this little Plane!
Much Fun ;-)

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

Happy Flying!

Brushless Micro Foam Quadcopter DIY
Since it's introduction last week, I've been bouncing it around the apartment. I began flying at ever increasing speeds and eventually made a mistake. The hard impact fractured the foam in several places but the propellers and motors were protected. One of the screws had broken loose from the camera's shell. The camera was undisturbed. More importantly, the quad didnít mar anything that it hit. For now, cracks have been glued and the loose screw is repaired. Although my repair work is hardly noticeable, I donít trust the integrity of glued foam. Anyway, the damaged part is a roughly cut prototype not the final version of it.

The first video tells the story and the second shows it running for the first time. This engine has waited patiently for about 38 years for its first drink of fuel. I was happy to be the one to satisfy the thirst.

Having been flying electric airplanes since the very early 1980s, I had often dreamed of having the same sorts of advantages in the car that I drove. You know the list - instant starts, and instant torque, very little mechanical maintenance, silence - that sort of thing.

Then, when the first Nissan Leafs started to appear around here I took a quick look, but was put off by some of the packaging design decisions Nissan engineers had made, and, of course, there was the whole "range anxiety" thing. At the time I was working about 15 miles from home (at Boeing's 737 plant in Renton) but there was always the possibility that I would be sent to Everett on a short or longer term basis, and a car that could only do 60-odd miles on a charge just wouldn't do it. So I shelved the idea and kept on happily driving my Mazda.

Then, in the spring of 2016, I was still working in Renton when the company offered me a "voluntary layoff" -the upshot of which is that they would pay me a lump sum of 26 weeks' salary to retire two or three years sooner than I had been planning. This set into motion a fairly large chain of events, but one of them was that I knew that I would no longer be under threat of having my job relocated to Everett. So I took another look at getting an electric car through I had never driven one - just thought about it. By this time there were quite a few choices beyond the Leaf (and the Leaf itself had been improved, but still had that funky interior...Continue Reading

For review : Predator 40A ESC
Sent by :
Link :

Finally had the weather and the time on my side to test the Predator 40A ESC .
What attracted me to this ESC was simply that it was ready to go , everything is soldered in place - XT60 plug and bullet connectors for the motor .
To test the ESC my plan was to run it at the rated current and see what happens ( Heat - power sag ) , look for those tell tale signs that maybe everything is not right in the world .

The first prop I tried is a 10.5 x 5 and the motor pulled 30A .. The Predator 40A never got more than barely warm at all ..
So obviously I had to try a larger prop to load up the motor to put the ESC under some pressure as 30A was doing nothing to the ESC .

Danger Danger :

I swapped props and put a 11x6 Master on the motor .
When I did this I also changed the battery , putting the first one on the charger .
As I plugged in the battery and slowly cranked in power . Something strange happened .
The power sagged something terrible ..
Got to run through that check list right ?
Did I over prop the motor = Nope
Was the ESC overloading = Nope

Only thing left is the battery !
So carefully applying power I watched the power meter ..
5 amps / 10 amps and at 15 amps the battery began to collapse , or should that be the voltage was collapsing ...
10 volts , 9 volts , 8 volts , 7 volts
Bad Ju Ju folks - Looks like the battery can not sustain a discharge any longer ..

Iím trying to make a 2 ft long 26 gauge Nichrome wire foam cutter. Iím using a 16v 10amp doorbell transformer with a dimmer. The dimmer is connected to the house power then into the transformer. The hot wire need 12v and 2.5 Amps to heat up but mine isnít getting hot enough with the 16v 10amps... instead the transformer is heating up. lmk if Iím doing something wrong Iím stuck.

RC Tip #4 - Standardize Your Battery Connectors

RC Tip #4 - Standardize Your Battery Connectors (5 min 33 sec)

Since there is much confusion regarding the various types of battery and power connectors in the RC Hobby especially for someone new to the hobby. I have standardized my battery, power, and vehicle connectors based on Amp draw from those vehicles.

This is just a guideline as only you know what works best for you.

My rule of thumb, using XT30, XT60, and JST Connectors is as follows:

Pulling less than 10 amps: JST Connectors
Pulling between 10amps and 30amps: XT30 Connectors
Pulling more than 30amps, no more than 60amps: XT60 Connectors

I currently do not have anything pulling more than 60 amps so I have been able to standardize on those three connectors.

I convert all my battery and power connectors accordingly.

I hope this tip helps in this area.

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

Happy Flying!

Back in the beginning of 2017, Team Associated was getting ready to put out something that I did not see coming...The Team Associated RC10T4.3 Qualifier Series Ready-To-Run stadium truck. After seeing the red, white, and blue body, I knew I had to have one!

Well, I became a parts hoarder because of chop shops putting items up for bid on eBay. I had so many spare parts, I was able to build my version of a Factory Team SC10.3, and a T4.3. I wanted to take a step backwards for a moment, and decided to go with a brushed motor setup on my T4.3 build. Needless to say, I didn't like the motors that I tried. They got super hot! No matter what I did, I could not find a sweet spot for gearing any length of time. The 2017 season had it's ups and downs.

In June 2018, a brushless motor finally made it's way onto the truck's motor mount. The no-name motor is a finned 540, but it is a pretty potent little can. The motor being only 3100kv, it's just about perfect for my needs.

I love everything about the "4" series platforms from Associated. Being able to share a lot of parts between buggy, stadium trucks, and short course trucks means a lot to me, and why I'll be keeping mine around for a long time coming.

At NEAT Fair he picked up a Hobby King Arctic Cat Kit and Bonsai II PNF Wing plus a RC Cores 22" Mini Yak. He also got an E-Flite PT-17 1.1. Plus we are almost done building an RA Cores Spitfire that I bought a few years ago and pretty much forgot about. He put Fortnite guns on the wings already, so that is his too. I'd rather have him keep getting planes to fly and doing Fortnite themes that playing Fortnite . That's not a bad haul for a kid who just turned 13.
