Does anyone know of a supplier/manufacturer of a Avro Lancaster foamy which is still available, I know HobbyKing did supply one but was discontinued a while ago probably because it wasn't popular and not a good flyer a pity because it looked good from the pictures.
I'd like to add this to my WW2 planes ie Spitfire (Eflite) excellent flyer and Dakota (Dynam) nice slow flyer, keep speed up on both though when landing to avoid stalls

Another successful maiden to report. Two flights of about 3:30 each on one 6s 4000mAh bat. Both landings seem smooth from my perspective, but from the 3rd person view atop v. stab. , seemed more harsh.

Part of the fun this hobby provides is the opportunity to tinker with our aircraft to get the most out of them. For those of us who get restless after a build ends and we've flown it successfully for a while, it only seems natural to start looking for ways to make improvements here or there, or maybe fix those minor problems that catch our attention during a flight. There is, however, that little voice that sounds an alarm: "Don't fix what isn't broken."

After flying my trusted 87" Extra 300 in a number of IMAC contests and racking up over 250 successful flights using my FrSky Taranis Plus transmitter, I wanted to upgrade my gimbals and sticks. I had been using the same transmitter for more than a year and half for all of my planes, and even though I hadn't noticed any wear in the gimbals, I wanted to be sure it was not contributing any slop to my input for precision aerobatics. Also, there were a couple heart thumping moments when I was pulling out of a vertical dive and the right stick (Mode 2) slipped out from my thumb. As a thumb pilot (vs. pinching the sticks with thumb and forefinger) this creates a potentially disastrous situation when pulling out close to the ground, and at best a loss of points in competition. It also causes a loss of confidence that you can maintain control of the aircraft, especially when it is needed most.

With that in mind I removed the stock gimbals that use a potentiometer with small contact brushes that can...Continue Reading

I fly alone 90% of the time, and at least half of that flying is done in my backyard, over, and around a lake. Flying near the water makes me very nervous when wearing goggles, so I decided I needed another option that would give me the benefits of both LOS, and FPV flight. So began my research for putting together an FPV ground station that would be relatively inexpensive, and quick, and easy to set up.

After some web browsing, and a few Google searches, I managed put this little GS together for $40 using items from Amazon, and eBay. So far it has worked flawlessly for me. I'll be taking it to the park with me in the next day or so to see what kind of range I can get out of it. For my yard, and the ball fields across the street it's been great.

Amazon $14 Monitor

Amazon $12 Tripod

$10 eBay 5.8ghz RX

$6 Amazon LCD Voltmeter

I power the unit with an Infinity 1300mah 11.1v LiPo battery that I already had, but any cheap 3s LiPo will do the trick.

The only soldering necessary for this build was to make a pig tail with an XT60 for the battery, and a couple JST connectors for the monitor, voltmeter, and receiver. Everything else is plug and play.

I plan on upgrading the antenna with an Aomway clover leaf in the near future, but as of right now I'm pretty pleased with the way this thing performs for what I have invested.

I will post a few more pics of how I have it all hooked together ASAP. For now here is a pic of the completed build. Feel free to ask any questions you might have if you're looking to build something similar.

Happy Flying!!
