Yep, decided that it was time to add ailerons to my triplane. Itís been crashed so many times that it flys like crap, unless you want to only turn left.
Iím thinking of rebuilding the landing gear with some normal bracing and a plywood plate. It needs to be a little more forward of the CG and have some give to it.
Also, I think that pulling the top wing off and fixing the struts with better reenforcements will make for a smoother flight.

I have officially completed my first build, and I am so excited. My soldering is not the best but they are strong connections and no smoke when I plugged in the battery,LOL!!!

It was under perfect field conditions that i crashed my gas Slick 74 that i had come to love so much. Lost orientation about 30 feet right in front of me and with the plane hovering 20 feet above the runway.

I spent a few weeks pushing my skills with 60 electrics and then decided to build an Electric version of the Slick 74. Why electric? Winter is coming - i feel more comfortable getting an electric plane rather than a gas plane on skis.

Kit arrived this past Thursday. I had originally planned to build it over a few weeks but this Noob can only stare at a kit for so long! So i built it in a day and half but took my time to really figure out the nuances of the bigger electrics, since this is my first electric bigger than EF 60.

Here are the build pics with some notes. I will add some final pics after the maiden on Tuesday Oct 17 (hopefully). The idea with these pics is to make it easy for another Noob to understand what could be done.

Super simple build:

XPWR 30 motor
Castle Edge HV 80A ESC
Castle BEC Pro
Jeti MUI 75 telemetry (flight pack V, A, and MAH consumed)
Jeti R7 Plus receiver
MKS 1220 servos
EF Servo arms and servo extension
EF CF spinner
EF Blazing Star Long stand off
Taildragger RC tail wheel
Scorpion battery straps
- No switches, satellites, or other batts.

I did make sure to upgrade the firmware on all the electronics just to be safe. It is also easy and recommended to set up the ESC with the Castle Link vs. via radio...Continue Reading

Virhuck 1/32 Scale 2WD Mini RC Truck Review (18 min 4 sec)

This little 2WD mini RC truck is a lot of fun. I didn't really know what to expect out of it because of the $20 price tag, but it's actually a solid remote control truck. I've been pretty rough with it crashing into walls and stuff on the deck and garage and it has held up well. The one thing that I don't like is the little rubber grommets that keep the truck body affixed come off when you crash. They're so small so once I ran the truck outside and crashed, I lost them. Not a huge deal, but I'll have to put some putty or glue there to keep the body on now.

Okay, I know I've fallen down on the job of keeping up this blog. I got a "life" (such as it is) to deal with, you know. Anyway, the next evolution of the Parkstar looks like this: welcome to the Parkstar Advanced.

I watched Matthew Ogbourne's videos on the new Sonicmodell F1 Wing and decided to order one. I'd like to do some more low level high speed flying and I'll need a tough EPP plane for that kind of mission. The EPP in the F1 Wing is supposed to be the toughest a lot of FPV pilots have ever seen.



Parts List:

Sonicmodell F1 Wing 833mm Wingspan Super High Speed FPV EPP Racing Wing RC Airplane PNP

The Salt Doll and the Sea

Once upon a time, after a long journey over mountain and valley, a Salt Doll reached the sea-shore. She was struck at that vast expanse of water. She had never seen the sea before. It was so large, so charming! She felt irresistibly attracted towards it. She stood on the shore, so firm and assured. The sea in front of her looked so vast, so immense, so inviting, so peaceful! She wanted by all means to know what the sea was.

Timidly, the Doll came closer to the sea and with a touch of curiosity asked the sea: Who are you?" And the sea replied: "I am the sea." The Doll remarked: "Well, you only told me your name. I want to know more about you. I want and long to experience who you are! Show me more about yourself'."

The sea, mysteriously, answered: "I am just what I am. I am the sea." In perplexity, the Doll inquired: "I cannot figure out what you say you are. Yet, I want to know more about you. Shall I be ever to understand who you are?

The sea replied: You will never come to know who I am, unless you come closer to me, unless you touch me. ... "If you really long to know who I am, please, come forward and allow me touch you!."

The Doll came forward and fearfully touched the sea with one of her feet. Immediately, she experienced a very strange, but beautiful a feeling.... Something glorious she could not understand! . Then, she tried to move her foot away from the water, but her foot...Continue Reading
