Finally some calmer wind to fly in ;-)
Wind this morning was only 3-5mph, Yeah!

The skill level needed for this Micro Parkjet is Intermediate to Advanced.
Intermediate setup is a 2S Power System with 10 points more Dual-Rate than on a 3S Setup.
Advanced setup is a 3S Power System.
It's very docile on a 2S Power System, Fast & Acrobatic with a 3S Power System.

JJRC H31 Quad MOD Part2 - Beecore BetaFlight Setup!



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h1eT4ensP44

I have wanted to perform this MOD for quite a while on my JJRC H31 Quad but higher priorities pushed it back.
I wanted to a have a Toy-Grade Quad to fly around the property when time doesn't allow for packing everything up and heading to my Flying Area.
Tiny Whoops are a blast indoors but not that great outdoors.
I chose this Quad because it can handle light wind outdoors and it's very durable.
Those of you that have watched my videos Piloting RC Aircraft know that durability is a must for me ;-)

In this video I will show you the changes I've made in the BetaFlight Configuration and a composite of two Test Flights I performed with this setup.
This should give you a good starting point in BetaFlight and then Tune to your flying style.

Part 3 will show an FPV Flight once the FPV Camera is installed.

Tutorial - King Kong/LDARC Tiny Wing 450 Installing the FPV System



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mO4nYYZ1W8

This item is courtesy of Banggood.
I thought this Tiny Wing would make for an excellent Micro FPV Wing ;-)
It has several flight modes; 6-axis, 3-axis, and manual.
It's made from EPP Foam which should make it extremely durable ;-)

I installed a Micro FPV System and with the 2S 450mah 35C LIPO I use it puts the CG (Neutral Balance) as far foward as 120mm from the Nose which is right where it needs to be ;-)
This FPV System worked out very well and kept the AUW at only 105 grams ;-)
This is one fun little Micro FPV Wing!

Review Part 1 - RacerStar SIC2207 2688kv Motor - Thrust Test ;-)



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndSNRLwCTJQ

This item is courtesy of Banggood!

I'm always looking for motors with great thrust and efficiency.
I'm not looking for a motor that has the greatest amount of raw power at the expensive of efficiency, many motors can give you that.
The best motors, in my opinion, are those that provide excellent thrust but also excellent efficiency.
I thrive on speed but I also like to have more than 3 minute flights per LIPO pack ;-)
RacerStar has been the best budget motors I have purchased thus far.
When I was asked if I would like to test the RacerStar SIC2207 2688kv Motor I didn't even have to think about it ;-)
The answer was a definite YES! hehehehehe

So, in this video we're going to see what we get in the package, weight, length of the wires, and most importantly, thrust and efficiency numbers ;-)
In part 2 of the Review we'll install it in a Parkjet and see it performs in the field.

Flight #15 - King Kong/LDARC Tiny Wing 450 FPV Test Flight!



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DSuuAX6PDo

This item is courtesy of Banggood.
I thought this Tiny Wing would make for an excellent Micro FPV Wing ;-)
It has several flight modes; 6-axis, 3-axis, and manual.
It's made from EPP Foam which should make it extremely durable ;-)

I installed a Micro FPV System and with the 2S 450mah 35C LIPO I use it puts the CG (Neutral Balance) right at the channel for the Servo Wires ;-)
I think that's very close to where it needs to be.
If I can ever get less than 5mph wind I'll be able to confirm that in Manual Mode.
This is the 2nd flight with an FPV System!

It's time to test out the FPV System!

The orange curve at the top and bottom right is a section of the canopy in view because I didn't get the camera positioned just right.
When to camera is positioned just right you do not see any obstructions.

JJRC H31 Quad MOD Part1 - Beecore Conversion!

Those of you that have watched my videos Piloting RC Aircraft know that durability is a must for me ;-)

In Part 1 of this MOD we will remove the Stock Flight Controller.
Setup our Beecore V2 Flight Controller for installation.
Make necessary Modification to the Quad so we can install a Beecore V2 Brushed Flight Controller.
Then perform a short Test Flight to make sure everything is working as it should.

Part 2 will cover the BetaFlight Configuration changes I had to make.

Part 3 will show an FPV Flight once the FPV Camera is installed and the Tuning nearly complete.

DustOff #3 - Glue & Fly Series F22 Mini V2 - Back to the Original ESC ;-)



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tPJMsHruBG0

This is just my 3rd flight of this Parkjet since completing my Line-Of-Sight Training.
I had forgotten how much fun this Parkjet is to fly ;-)
Let's blow some Dust Off!

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Beginner to Intermediate.
Beginner setup is a 2S Power System with a 6x4 Prop.
Intermediate setup is a 3S Power System with a 6x3 Prop.
It's a great Trainer on a 2S Power System, Fast & Acrobatic with a 3S Power System.

This was my Trainer Parkjet when I transitioned to Planes ;-)

If you would like a copy of the Plans & Associated Documents send an email to

In the Email Subject enter: GFS F22 Mini V2 Plans
I will get them to you as soon as I can.
You're going to love it ;-)

Test Flight #1 - Turnigy AeroDrive 2826 2200kv Motor - FW190 WarBird!



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nGL9boxoWek

***This motor is, in fact, a 2212 2200kv motor. The Microjet V3 Motor I was using apparently is smaller than a 2212, however, the description leads you to believe it is a 2212. That explains why the significant increase in torque!

e3Scott sent me this motor to see if I could put it to good use ;-)
Thank you much e3Scott for this motor.
I decided to install this motor in my FW190 Warbird as the 2212 2200kv Motor I've been flying with just seemed a bit weak even though it tested well on the bench.
I'm happy to say that this Motor does indeed provide more torque than the 2212 I was running ;-)
It now pulls through Loops & Split-S Maneuvers with ease.
That make this plane even more of a joy to fly!

DustOff #3 - Glue & Fly Series F22 Micro V2 - 2S LIPO Flight ;-)



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l91G4E8RATc

Well, I've been trying to make a 2S Flight Demo for a week now.
This is my 3rd Morning out to my flying area and the 3rd Morning where the wind forecast was for 3mph wind.
This is the 3rd Morning where instead of 3mph wind it was 5mph-8mph with 10mph gust.
Well, I couldn't wait any longer so I'm throwing caution to the wind literally ;-)
Let's blow some Dust Off!

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Intermediate to Advanced.
Intermediate setup is a 2S Power System with 10 points more Dual-Rate than on a 3S Setup.
Advanced setup is a 3S Power System.
It's very docile on a 2S Power System, Fast & Acrobatic with a 3S Power System.

Flight #4 - King Kong/LDARC Tiny Wing 450



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voDgLnckB8M

This item is courtesy of Banggood.
I thought this Tiny Wing would make for an excellent Micro FPV Wing ;-)
It has several flight modes; 6-axis, 3-axis, and manual.
It's made from EPP Foam which should make it extremely durable ;-)

It's Flight time!

Test Flight #1 - HK FW190 WarBird Crash #2 Repair!



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPwbavFIDgA

I have everything repaired after my 2nd Crash with this plane.
I replaced the Motor Mount, 8x4 Prop, and installed a new Receiver.
I don't know if the original Receiver is bad or if it just had a blind spot.
The original Receiver has short antennas and the replacement has long antennas that I have well away from the electronics and obstructions.

Repairs Completed: New Motor Mount, Straightened and re-attached landing gear, replaced the Prop.

This Kit is discontinued but they still have the F6F Hellcat ;-)

Here is a link to the kit:
