Cable guards installed, hall effect sensors rearranged, & cables farstened. Getting those cable guards to fit around the motor modules & attach to the tubes required some of the gnarliest CAD modeling. A revision would definitely involve screwing them onto the tubes instead of gluing them.


Wrapping the cable in captain tape & hot gluing the captain to the plastic proved to be the best way to farsten it. A 6mm diameter proved to be the narrowest PLA worm size before it crumbled.

The cable guards still aren't perfect. The laminations have to be smoothed. A heavier cable snags less than a skinny wire, so a bundle of captain where the cable meets the cable guard helps.

Has anyone ever tried to take turns off a stock brushed rs540 motor to make it go quicker? Just wondering what would happen 😂 I guess it would up the amps and speed? Anybody?

We all have airframes that have not been flown a while. Maybe its outdated, under powered or just isnt as flashy as the latest and greatest. But flying one from the cockpit perspective can make you giddy like kid again, even with the butterfly in the stomach feeling of learning to fly all over - with Head-tracking high definition FPV.

◄► Robert Graves .. Poseidon's name, which was sometimes spelt Potidan, may have been borrowed from that of his goddessmother, after whom the city Potidaea was called: the watergoddess of Ida ..

Ida meaning any wooded mountain .. "Poseidon" means "forest" .. literally (wood) outside, from Latin foris outside ..

In THE THIRD MILLENNIUM B.C. , The wild forests of (Le Tell septentrional), s'tendent sur 2 500 km from Morocco to Tunisia ..

Murry Hope .. It is amazing to what irrational lengths people will go to disprove something they find difficult to accept, or to prove that which takes their fancy ..
Muck asserts, that Atlantis received its name from the high mountains, that dominated its impressive landscapes, and gave it, in turn, to the surrounding Ocean ..

(The Atlantic Ocean ). Phonetically and semantically speaking, the term "Atlantic" is evocative of (الطَّوْل = Tall, High) .. From verb (طالَ) = be long, high, great, superior, powerful .. As (Atlas) and (Atlantic) have the same etymology, Atlas would mean (strong, mighty, powerful) ..

Its first king was designated the son of Poseidon, GOD OF THE SEA, and paralleled with Atlas, bearer of the heavenly vault ..

Here are some key measurements of my PopCorn constant chord flying wing or plank. The unusual tail boom allows “parking” into the wind at high angles of attack without the tail fin being masked. This is useful on the slopes or when doing steep descents into tight landing spots.

The wing is 900mm span with a 250mm Chord. The wing has a simple 3mm spar of 3mm hard balsa inserted by simply sectioning the wing at 700mm from the LE and then sandwiching the spar. The airfoil is an EMX07 by Martin Lichte (use Profili). The foam is as light as you can get -i.e. packaging foam. The trailing edge is cut off and a 3mm stiffener added. The new trailing edge and full width elevons are made from standard TE stock with a 1.5-2mm sheet extension to follow the lower airfoil profile - the exact shape is not that critical but the closer to the original reflex the better. I used bottom tape hinging. The ends of the wing are capped with 2mm ply for a bit of protection.

The Skin is 0.75oz glass cloth finished with 3 coats of water based polyurethane. Wetting the wing then wrapping the cloth around and pegging it on the clothes line at the TE works fine. There is no LE but a woven packaging tape added after does offer some protection. Wing build time is very fast - less than an hour including drying time if it is a hot day.

The fuse extends with the same profile as the bottom of the airfoil to the TE. There is just the single nylon bolt holding it on. Ply plating at the bolt-on...Continue Reading

Here are some set-up for traditional RTP with only speed control to adjust altitude:

Some simple RTP planes:
https://outerzone.co.uk/browse_plans...lts.asp?page=1
In that method power to the motor is limited because of the loss in long wire wire. With the light R/C equipment available now it is possible to have the battery on the plane and use an ESC and servo to control altitude (and a single line to reduce drag). The little yellow "Ringmaster" shown weight about 1 1/2 Oz and powered with a 16mm GWS brushed, would have been lighter with brushless and one Lipo! The heavier the plane, the beefier the pylon has to be but larger planes can be flown outside on longer line much like a regular Control line (I was using a photo tripod as pole with a water jug attached to weight it). Haven't flown it for several years but might try again this winter Hope this help!
