Worst Aosenma I ever bought CG037

Here are my observations from my first test flight: 10 min.
I did not fly above about 50 ft. or horizontal distance beyond 200 ft. The test only lasted about 8 to 10 minutes. Very unstable. It wobbled a lot & almost clashed.
.
I used vast software and checked the controller & data screens. Calibration of Gyros & compass was out wack so I did a VAST calibration on both. Prior to this, before my first practice flight I did a complete manual quad & controller calibration. I also adjusted “flight” settings. Not within reasonable test values so I adjusted to the values below for close range operation for my next test. I also noted the software version & settings were identical to my CG035. Not good as the CG037 is a bigger bird etc. So Aosenma did not do flight testing & adjustment.

Return height: 45 Max height: 40 Max Range: 150


Here are my observations from my second test flight: 15Mins.
This time there was a bit of wind but no more than 3 mph. Consequently, I deemed safe to fly as I’ve flown my CG035s in similar conditions without any problems. I flew around close range for a few minutes in “GPS/altitude hold” mode, but still being a bit unstable I decided to venture a bit higher and farther out.

I then switched to “normal” mode for a few minutes. All seemed to be functioning OK. But when I flew a bit higher, the quad started to wobble, so I switched back to “GPS” mode. The...Continue Reading

I decided to sell my previous corsair and build a new and improved one.
This one is bigger (1300mm), more scale (retracts, plastic parts for scale details, etc), and with a solid wing and fuselage which makes it a bit heavier but significantly sturdier.
The result was great, she flies awesome and looks the part up in the air and also taxiing on the ground.

Yep Les Amis,
Initiation au Racer FPV ... et au Bricollage ! lol . J'ai aujopurd'hui en test le DYS Shark Mako (bnf) et la nouvelle IrangeX IR8M V2, donc je fais d'une pierre deux coups puisque cette radio est multiprotocole . J'ai eu quelques soucis avec cette radio au niveau des appairages avec Frsky et DSM que j'ai fini par résoudre avec quelques modifs. Sinon cette V2 est vraiment agréable à prendre en main et le travail effectué sur les Gimballs est remarquable comparé à la 1ère version que je n'avais pas du tout appréciée à cause de ça.
Le DYS Shark Mako lui, ne m'a posé aucun problème, de l'appairage en passant par BF ainsi qu'en vol, il ne faut pas s'attendre à des performances de malade mais il fait parfaitement le Job ! Son point fort, LA SOLIDITE !!! C'est un vrai petit char d'assault qui s'adresse selon moi, aux fans d'indoor et au débutants en FPV Racer.

I got a used, new to me, Blade 250 CFX today!

It looks like a fine step up from my sub-micro Blade 130S.

It seems to be working well after inspection & systems test. Main Motor seems a bit wobbly (? cheep) but otherwise i like it so far. It has some real power & awesome sound

I'll look further into the sloppy motor issue-it may be OK or may need servicing. We'll see...
The tail blade needs replacement soon but is okay for now. It looks bent but not torn, so i'll be easy on it. I bet my lhs has spare tail blades

This 250 CFX came with a spare Main Gear & two orange Microheli plastic Main Blades! Perfect.
The stock Carbon Fiber Main Blades are a bit fancy for me. I'll enjoy them later after i get more experience & stop crashing so often

The seller thankfully double-boxed the 250--its stock box looks dang new. I'm impressed. Hope to maiden soon, been windy down here in Texas.

Good day y'all

I will be using the struts because on the rigorous test flights without them I have found compression wrinkles on the top wing just beyond where the spar ends and the flap area begins. This is a stress riser due to the servo cutout area. The wrinkle is invisible until the wing tip is picked up. If a longer spar were used out to within 8 inches or so of the wingtip then there would no buckling. Horizon has no Maule spars for spares. So a substitute will be researched. Until then the struts will be used.

Plywood wing spar mod:

I cut out plywood wing spars with dimensions of 1/16” thick by 24 mm deep by 470 mm long. Each spar weighs 12 gms compared to each V strut that weighs 19 gms (w/o screws). The wing maximum depth is 30 mm so there is 6 mm between the spar and top of the wing.

This would be some of the smoothest FPV footage I have ever recorded with a fixed wing. The Mini Talon is a terrific platform.

The Gee Bee Model R1 and R2 Super Sportsters were special purpose racing aircraft made by Granville Brothers Aircraft of Springfield, Massachusetts at the now-abandoned Springfield Airport during the "Golden Age" of aircraft.

Designed by Howell "Pete" Miller and the Granville Brothers in 1932 the R1 and its sister plane, the R2, were the successors of the previous year's Thompson Trophy-winning Model Z (already available in Phoenix as an "Official" model).

The R1 (NR 2100 #11) using the 800 hp Wasp Senior engine, won the Thompson Trophy race in 1932 with a speed of at a speed of 252.686 mph piloted by Jimmy Doolittle.

The R2 (NR 2101 #7) was designed primarily as a cross-country racer with increased tankage was initially fitted with the 550 hp R-985 Wasp Junior.

A flying replica of the R2 was built by Steve Wolf and Delmar Benjamin that first flew in 1991. That aircraft is now on display at Fantasy of Flight at Polk City, Florida.

Two Phoenix models derived from a SketchUp model by George P. are presented:

The Gee Bee R1 #11 is built at a scale of 2 meters and is fully detailed as appropriate.

The Gee Bee R2 #7 is built after the Eflite 180 UMX model with a wingspan of 510 mm. This in turn is based on the 1991 R2 replica flown by Delmar Benjamin.

The models can be downloaded here.

I've been into rc forever... however... I've never got into boats... I just purchased one and I'd like some advice on how to set it up... I have lots of rc's but this boat is new to me so any advice is greatly appreciated.... i bought a 36" v hull carbon fiber ariane 2... I'm not thrilled with the motor it comes with(3660 2075 kv)... so I'm currently looking at the turningy t~20 and the proteus x520... any suggestions on this is great... I'm planning on putting a turning fat boy 300a esc in it also... I'm going to run 2... 3s 11.1v 6000mah 65c with 130c batteries for the initial setup... I eventually would like to go higher on the batteries but I'd like some input being that I'm green with boats... any info would be greatly appreciated

New 83” wings are done but heavier than I wanted. Should have skipped the fiberglass layer, may be. On to interchangeable 100” wing set and stab. Truely nervous about flying it. I’m just not convinced about that blade joiners system for the wing. I’d prefer a big tube or square c.f. joiner.
