Spent this afternoon cleaning up the wings on this C G Electra. Used a rotary tool to drill out the glued balsa pieces in the center of the wings and added an aluminum strip cut from a soda can, well-sanded. Scratchbuilt 3/4” wingtips. After touching up some gaps with lightweight spackling, I sanded it thoroughly, but carefully, with 80 grit sandpaper. Cracked two ribs, not mine thank the Lord, but they CA’d back in place just fine. Working with a 30+ yr.-old, brittle, 78” 100% balsa and ply wingspan was an experience.

In this OpenTx Tutorial, I will show you how to configure Flight Modes on OpenTx and how to switch modes using the 6 position switch.

Flight Modes and the 6 Position Switch - Radiomaster TX16s - OpenTx for Beginners Tutorial (43 min 25 sec)

This is not to be confused with flight modes on flight computers/autopilots. The flight modes covered in this video are radio flight modes which allow various configurations of trims, rates, and mixes within the individual modes. This has nothing to do with stabilization, hover, waypoints, or return to home.

I learned while editing the video the 6 position switch must also be calibrated during the OpenTx hardware calibration process. I cover both calibrated and uncalibrated 6 position channel outputs in the video.

Before you attempt the techniques demonstrated in this video, you should be comfortable using OpenTx Companion and with creating mixes. You can get up-to-speed with the two videos below:

I'm happy to see that the Federal Govt. has decided to withdraw its backing for Clive Palmer's High Court challenge to the WA hard border. I suspect they withdrew because very few West Aussies would likely vote for them in the next election (I think it's the 1st half of next year) if they followed through as the bid is deeply unpopular in WA, and from the little I've heard even people in the Eastern States don't like the sound of the challenge or of the Federal govt. supporting it. I'm sure that's not the reason they'll give publicly but hey, so long as they're out of it.

If you didn't know, I make a living as a live sound engineer in Perth, operating the PA system for live music in large pub venues. That was one of the first industries to be clobbered by the virus, but we've been able to work again for about a month now. Crowds in town are very busy again on the weekends when I work there. I've been talking with more of the "punters", the patrons and general public, at and around the gigs I've been to lately. From that and the media, I gather that West Aussies really do understand that we are in an extraordinarily lucky position, being able to see the footy at the stadium, go to gigs, drink in pubs, go to the supermarket without queuing, and generally living life the way we're used to. There's also a sense that that inevitably sooner or later, the virus will reappear, with that 2nd wave in Victoria and NSW. People believe it will surely cross...Continue Reading

Another furloughed project from my loft.

Welcome, Lets start by telling the story. Way back in the late 70s my then club mates and I were into flat field soaring (pre electric days) at Cranford Park west London. My then club was the Hayes & District Model Aero Club.

Back then throughout the summer, Wednesday night was always club comp night with trophies at the end of the year. Typical comps would be a, 6 minute duration comp with a spot landing, and 100s comps

This is where the Sailman comes in to the story. My mate Matt built and competed with his Simple Sailman & would regally win or be well placed in the comps, some times against far more sophisticated models (not mine I hasten to add). As I remember Matt did have one little trick up his sleeve, as the wing tips are removable he built a selection of differing lengths to suit the comp. Anyhow at the end of year Matt typically would take home some of the clubs silver ware.

Roll on many decades to September last year. Its my current clubs annual E-fly event and arrive one of my old club mattes from back in the day, we will call him Andy T to protect his identity! Andy had been very impressed with Matts model back in the days, so had splashed out on a kit of his own. Andy had made a start on the kit assembling the fuselage side panels, before life got in the way & eventually the kit ended up in the loft where it had stayed.

Andy been having a clearer out of his loft and rationalising his...Continue Reading

I managed to get some (reasonable) video of the new wing in flight. It's harder than you think to shoot when you are by yourself and trying to fly the model at the same time. A camera on the transmitter helps but still it's a bit unsteady so I hope no-one gets seasick.
Here is the video, anyway:

I thought that I would share my attempt to scratch build a Bell 206 JR using OMP M2 mechanics, a CAD package and 3d printing, as perhaps others might find some of this useful or have some tips to share with me.

Quick bit about me. I only started flying RC helis during the lockdown, starting with a Blade Nano S2. I did fly fixed wing RC many decades ago (think AM radios) but I'm still very much a novice pilot. I'm unlikely to progress into 3d flying, but I decided to buy an OPM M2 after reading the rave reviews. The mechanical simplicity and build quality impressed me, but I really hankered for a scale heli, especially a Bell JR - I just needed a scale kit for the M2. Not finding one of a suitable size, I decided to build one. The thing is, the material of choice is not the balsa that I used long ago. The M2 is all carbon fibre and aluminium. What to do?

Inspired by several things that I have read on the web about 3d printing, different filament materials, and the appearance of downloadable 3d printed kits (both helis and fixed wing), I decided to give 3d printing a go. In the words of a famous UK motoring journo, how hard can it be? Knock it up on a PC, click a few buttons, send it to the printer and Robert is your mother's brother. What could possibly go wrong?

Printer choice
The first decision was selecting a 3d printer. I plumped for a Prusa i3 Mk3s. Widely praised in the 3d printing community and press, it seemed a sensible choice...Continue Reading
