UK 'Drone' regulations ( they're Quadcopters not Drones, Drones carry weapons or surveillance equipment ) are ruining the hobby, now we either stay below 250grams or submit to their ridiculous and constraining requirements. SO, I am now reduced ( even though micros fly extremely well that mental boot print is still at the back of my mind ) to flying sub 250grams. If this can carry a Firefly 4K or a CADDX Tarsier I would be very happy.

Every year, China's human casualties and economic losses caused by sudden public events such as natural disasters, accidents, and social security events are huge. The emergency industry, as an important material and technical guarantee for emergency management, is increasingly receiving national attention. The effective application in rescue can make every minute count, which not only improves rescue efficiency but also reduces the danger of personnel.

In emergency rescue events such as industrial accidents, natural disasters, fire accidents, public events, and public transportation, drones do not need a runway, are small in size, take off conveniently, are flexible in operation and can respond in a timely manner. They arrive at the accident site from empty roads and mount HD The camera system will transmit the scene situation to the command center as soon as possible, and provide strong data support for the next step of the command center deployment. In addition, UAVs can also carry important functions such as emergency search and rescue, airdrop supplies and air communication relay in disasters by mounting loads such as infrared thermal imaging, lidar, and emergency communications.

MMC, as a leader in industrial drones at home and abroad, has provided complete solutions for drone applications in many fields. At present, the applications in the field of the emergency rescue of drones have the following capabilities:

First, unified and coordinated rapid scheduling...Continue Reading

This is my latest model I have built. It had some defects I had to correct but all is good now.

Nothing out of the ordinary, just enjoying the FreeStyle, in one of the places where I fly (San Cristobal - Antioquia), practicing with this TBS frame.

I had a chance to test the RTH and Stab functions of the SR86A-G Rx paired with the Detrum DT-9 Tx. The pair make an effective combo for a very simple yet reliable RTH system.

I have not posted pictures/progress on the P-51 but I have been moving along on it

I did a rough balance on the plane with all the components in their aprox. place - using the coraplast tail feather I would need to add 3.5 oz of lead to balance .
With balsa tails it more like .75 oz
I am going with balsa tails.
I have roughed out the pieces and the glue is drying on the rudder front/back pieces .
Getting close to tape ing the fuse and adding the tail

Life has been crazy chasing around two teen age kids and being a band director to boot. So much always going on and when I'm home I just want to crash! However, my BF109 is in the basement begging for me to continue and I'm about to get a short break. I think it is time to get my hobby chops back in condition. As for flying, I only went out a couple times this summer/Fall. I have repaired my Extra 300 but I need to replace fuel lines. My Slow Poke Sport is still a consistent flyer withe the OS 46 on it. The Corsair got out once this summer, but would not start. My Etna flies great as doe my Astro Hog Bipe. So on to winter break and time to continue the 109 build. I am giving up on trying to make any complex flap controls and I'm simply going to use direct linkage servos on each surface. That will be 3 per wing. Once I install these however I can finish the wing and begin final framing and glassing. I will begin a new build log on this site as I am not going to continue it on

See ya soon!

Took the Cub 500 out for another fly last evening .

( Beginner Mode ) It wont turn , actually it will but needs a lot of space ...
More space than my CG test area has to offer .. Really needed to add a fair amount of rudder to make the cub turn .

( Midd Mode ) As in the previous post , not bad at all . But needs more aileron . I would call this mode ok for Noobs .

( Expert mode ) Flight stability is turned off in this mode . The Cub 500 really gets pushed around by the breeze / turbulence in this mode ( you see it ) . The flight stability does a really good job on the cub . Makes flying look and feel easy . Still , need more aileron .

( Problems ) The drive cog on the motor output shaft fell off !!!!
I am so glad it fell off at my feet after landing , cos otherwise I would have never found it .

450x ( The brushed one with the F949 flight board )

It was a little soft on the controls ..
After investigating , the servos on the F949 were weak .. And simply could not throw enough .
So I have pulled the F949 flight board and controls ..
The brushed 450x will be re-built with the same motor ( it;s HOT ) and given a Rx and brushed ESC + servos .
I really want to see the brushed 450 flying as well as the brushless one I have ..

After a flurry of Black Friday purchases and other things I needed to buy to complete the Black Friday purchases, I found myself way over budget. I sold more planes than I probably wanted to and paid everything off before my wife had a stroke. I did end up with two new planes from Precision Aerobatics. The Addiction X and the Ultimate AMR 60. I can't wait for the Addition X to get off backorder. That was supposed to go under the tree for me. If it doesn't get here, the AMR 60 will have to stand in for it. I wasn't planning on getting anything on Black Friday originally since I picked up a used AJ Laser 60" a few weeks before, but it is truly an addiction.

After selling my planes, I ended up with surplus cash. Then I remembered the one guy I sold to had a Mamba 60e that he flew a few times, but then bought an AJ Proteus Biplane and lost interest in the Mamba 60e. I can understand that. I love my Mamba 10 and have wanted the 60e since it came out. He gave me a price that beat any Black Friday deal I saw. And tomorrow night he is bringing it over for the traditional exchange of cash for goods. I prefer flying the lighter balsa planes, but nothing beats a good foam plane when it is really windy out. Especially with an Aura 8 in it. I went crazy buying them too. I have one for each of the new PA planes and 2 I don't know what to do with yet, but I'll find something to put them in...eventually. Not anytime soon though as I bought all the planes I have been looking at recently. If the AJ Laser 230z flies as good as the previous owner says it does, I might start looking into that Proteus. I do like my bipes.

So, my great friend, fellow Breezy Hill Flyer, musician, craftsman, veteran, and all-around-great-guy, Billy Lang made me a "model of a model", my beloved Lazy Bee!

Intended as a Christmas Tree ornament, it will instead spend it's days atop it's own personal rotating display stand next to my computer!

I made some changes to this bird after its initial 2 flights. While it flew amazing with the stock set up, there was a lot of buzzing coming from the fan. Once I got it out of the plane it made sense why. The screw that holds the rotor in place was loose..... NOT GOOD!! Its ok though because I already had plans to replace it anyway. I have had an FMS 2100kv set up sitting for a while waiting for a good home. The light weight of this plane would be a great fit!!! So after some balancing of the fan, it was put into the bird. I also fitted my afterburner set up and am pretty impressed with how it came out! I got some flights over the weekend and it blew me away with a vertical climb up and almost out of site right from take off!! Here are some pix I got and will post the videos once they upload...

Needful Things - The Heli-Cool Pad - A Gift Idea for the Holidays ;-)

Here is a link to the Video:

#GroundControlRC #GlueAndFly #ScratchBuildPlanes #Gift #Idea #HeliCoolPad #LandingPad #Holidays #Project #RC

Years ago when I was playing around with Micro Helicopters and Quadcopters I wanted a Landing Pad to practice my Landing Skills.
I couldn't find anything that really seemed to be what I was looking for, so I made one myself.
I called it the Heli-Cool Pad ;-)
I made one for myself and two othere RC enthusiast as an inexpensive easy to make gift ;-)
They were a hit ;-)
So in this video I'll show you how I made it, the material I used, and a Free Graphic for you to use on your Heli-Cool Pad!
The Cost Per Heli-Cool Pad if you print the graphic yourself for (1) side is approx. $1.50 US
The Cost Per Heli-Cool Pad if the print shop prints the graphic for (1) side is approx. $4.50 US

Let's get started...

Here is a link to the Graphic:

The Honda Stateline
by Bunnyshooter223

Being a novice rider, this bike stole my heart. It beat the Suzuki SV650 as my all-time favorite bike. Unlike many price-conscious bikes (such as the Ninja 400, Rebel 500, and Shadow 750) the Honda Stateline was designed with gobs of passion. The Stateline and Fury are some of the gems of the bike world.
I'll be writing this from a beginning rider's perspective as the Stateline is my first motorcycle. I earned my 'M License' 12 years ago but Lo! No bike to call mine 'til now. It had been so long that i had given up until.... well read on then

Where the SV650 fell into a Gladius-shaped pit and the Honda Shadow RS was forgotten in favor of the bland 'Phantom,' the previous generation VTX1300 had evolved into art. I can see hints of Rune in the tank style and bodywork of my bike! Cool, man

Just don't say that out loud, about the passion. You might miss out on a lot of fun smaller bikes or pee off those who are way-speedier racers than you (I'm talking to you, Bunny).

Notice clean & low look featuring stretched,
flowing, exaggerated bodywork reminiscent of
the late Honda Rune

The Stateline unfairly gained a 1-up, being an evolution of the late VTX1300 line and is part of the chopperesque Fury 'VT1300' lineup. It initially had a $13,000+ usd price tag for the ABS model. This was later reduced to ~$10k, which i feel is fair considering...Continue Reading
