Just out tooling around with my little Skylark after the Leopard 2835 1350Kv motor upgrade. This is a very good little plane and I still enjoy flying it:

My name is Kristen. I am 36 years old and I live in Circleville, Ohio. I have been married 9 years to my hubby Wes. We have no children but we love to travel here in the states. We're hoping to visit Germany in a few years! It is the home of the Circleville Pumpkin Show. It's basically a 4 day event featuring pumpkins. They sell different pumpkin foods as well as regular fair food. We have a local German restaurant that sets up (Schmidt's) a booth as well. They have a giant pumpkin weight in, 7 parades, rides, etc. It's worth checking out in October.

I am interested in drones as well as my husband. We aren't interested in racing them but being able to take them somewhere that is abandoned or even when my friends and I are ghost hunting (which we love). I have recently visited family and my brother races remote control cars which looked pretty cool!

Feel free to leave a message and say hi. I do know fellow member cmulder (Christian) but it's been 20 years and we've never met in person!

In this http://rcvideoreviews.com video we will cover Logical Switches Top to Bottom. The primary goal is to explain every logical switch function and to show how those functions work. In order to gain a complete understanding, you must also fully understand the sources list which is covered as well from top to bottom.

When you've made it through this video, you will understand what logical switch functions do which puts you in a position to exploit one of the key capabilities of OpenTx radios.

Like your dad used to say, "take your medicine..." When this is over, you will feel better.

IRCHA bound last weekend. Anyone else make it to IRCHA this Year? Definitely nothing like last Year due to the Pandemic. But still a good time to be had. The Blade 480 Fusion is pretty cool especially 4 going at once. Tried to upload the Video and it won't. Oh well. Someone was lucky enough to win one in a Raffle that day as well. Also got a free T-Shirt from the nice Gentleman at RC Bearings Tent. :-) Was supposed to Test out my Weekender as well but due to Technical difficulties it didn't happen at this time. Soon though. :-)

Hello good people!

Like the title says, it was a nose-in from 4 feet onto soft grass.

This happened back on Saturday, August 8th, 2020 at my RC Club and during a 2nd flight focus on landing. I was steady with the controls, especially Elevator control and without moving the stick, it just dived from 4 feet off the deck. Motor stick (8 mm X 10mm) was busted and right inboard top wing sustained a crack / rip. Propeller didn't break (GWS Slow Flyer 8 X 6).

Post crash (hard landing) investigation was undetermined as you all know during a good whack into a nose first crash the Elevator servo usually gets damaged. Well, the strange thing was after making air-frame repairs I took off the wing assembly from the FUSE and tried out the electronics while connecting the battery and observed the Elevator servo making this awful buzzing sound. After you moved the Elevator stick on the Transmitter was when it quit the buzzing and servo moved correctly to both directions.

I went ahead and changed out the 72-Mhz Castle Creations BERG 4-Channel receiver for the Spektrum AR8000 + SAT combo as this is in my opinion the best receiver that Horizon has ever made and wanted rock solid control from now on with my beloved and long discontinued GWS pico Tiger Moth. Even after I replaced RX to the Spektrum AR8000 + SAT, the Elevator servo continued it's buzzing and this time it was not until I turned ON my Spektrum first generation DX7se (Special Edition) that supports 11milli-second frame...Continue Reading

This is my new built a modified 40% Slowly V2. The previous was fun but motor did not like to many crashes so i build a modified version training inspired by the Micron wings Student Flyer.

Wings and landing gear were reused from previous Slowly. I added some CF reinforcement at the front . I used dollar tree foams and plate foam.

Here a video:

My $25 Goldberg Electra has a fuselage that needed more work than was apparent when I got it. It didn’t help that I knocked the fuse off my workbench causing the tail feathers to pull off. I believe it ended up being a good thing. They were barely tacked on to a 1/16” thick piece of balsa and had been altered to just lay on top and not go down into slots.

A video by Sonex413 on YouTube influenced me greatly. I am trying to match his setup:

Vintage GOLDBERG ELECTRA Motorglider with Air-to-Air Views (12 min 5 sec)


A 2212 motor and Sullivan Gold-n-Rods were purchased. The motor came with 9g Servos. He ran wires and I’m trying to stick with the Sullivan kit’s yellow control cable. He also built a box for his lipo.

Yep Les Amis,
Quelques défauts mais toujours sur le podium ! Après quelques mises à jour, ce nouveau cru 2020 du FIMI X8 SE rencontre encore quelques difficultés, au niveau de la gimbal, qui met du temps à se remettre à l'horizontal, et avec le mode tracking, qui a un peu de mal à garder la cible. Malgré ces deux points, importants mais pas rédhibitoires, ce FIMI X8 SE se défend encore grâce à toutes ses autres qualités qui en font un appareil d'un excellent rapport qualité prix ! Pour 350€ avec les coupons, on a quand même entre les mains un engin fiable et résistant qui permet de rapporter des photos et vidéos d'une très bonne qualité amateur . Si FIMI arrive à résoudre ces quelques petits défauts, le X8 SE ravira une fois de plus la première place sur le podium des drones de prise de vue amateur à moins de 400€ ! Je reste confiant ... Bon Film et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

FIMI X8 SE 2020 - Test Démo Review - Les mises à jour seront les bienvenues ! (39 min 4 sec)


NOTATAZ : 17/20 Quelques défauts à régler Mr FIMI !
Niveau : Débutants et Confirmés
Les + : Rapport qualité prix ! Puissant et Souple, Réactif, Assez précis, Très bonne autonomie, Stable, Excellente qualité d'image, Nombreux modes de vol ...
Les - : Horizontalité de la gimbal, Mode tracking ...
