Hello friends

My name is Sid and I love to fly aeromodels in my spare time.

I have this model Dago red lying in a box with me since some time. I want to convert it to electric as glow is not my thing.

I have this electric motor twister 19 (450 kv I think) and 80.amp Esc. Which battery and prop would you recommend for this model. I was thinking of 6 S 2700 mAH battery and a 15x8 prop.

Also if any of you has a build video for the Dago red, would you be kind enough to share it please my email is [email protected].

Thanks and regards

Testing of Starship Autonomous Delivery Robots in Silicon Valley (2 min 52 sec)

It was 90% autonomous, at least 5 years ago. It's slow & noisy, being based on a traditional geared transmission. It has 6 wheels with the 4 corner wheels powered. It gets up curbs by lowering its center wheel & resting on its rear wheel. It uses skid steering. The tires are even more minimal than lion tires. There's no suspension. It's quite large.

Routes are mapped in fine detail. They have limited ability to avoid obstacles. They usually stop when confronted by a human instead of going around. It goes 4mph.

I was one of the lucky ones who stayed working, I was already working from home so our routine didn't change much.
Disney On Ice was one of the first shows I worked on when I joined the crewing agency that provides stagehands and other crew for the big concerts, in 2017 (I've been in the industry since 1990 one way or another but only joined that group more recently). I'm not allowed to publicly post details about the shows but I can tell you that Disney On Ice has been around for a good 30 years, more probably, and some of the props and equipment are even that old. Parts of the sound that I saw were very interesting, great cutting-edge stuff, but cutting edge for around 1995 - 2000

On that type of show it's more designed like a theatre setup than a big rock concert. The audience is mostly young families with many small children so you can't just blow them away with rock concert sound! So theatre sound is different, it's more about smaller speakers but more of them in more places, and you might have the music coming from one...Continue Reading

Started with Nano S3 in March. Got the mCPX BL2 in April. The Nano only works in green mode. The mCPX works in all 3 modes but ive already replaced the control board. Using a DX6e.

So it took a while to get going again.
I got the clear coat sprayed on.
I guess I'm not so good at this step.
Turned out as more of a fog coat than smooth and shiny.
Wet sanded w/ 800 and going for a second coat.
I let it flash and all the other tips, I just didn't apply properly.
I'll take more time this round and hopefully it turns out right.

I needed a hobby so I grabbed a Nano s3 RTF. Fell in love with micros all though the s3 didnt seem to work in IU1 (blue light). So i got a Spektrum DX6e and started learning to use that. I used the Nano S2 file and got it running but only green mode. So then i got the mCPX BL2. I fly the bearings off that one! So I backordered a 150s BNF. Impatience struck lolol so i grabbed an OMP M2 Explore. What a monster! Iwas clueless on setup so i didnt have self level set up and didnt know. Got about a 3 minute sad attempt at hover before i over corrected into my rollaway tool box. So a swash plate, grips, blades and now needed hardware, Ive decided to get the RealFlight 9.5 and a dongle. Cant wait for zero dollar impacts and trying to do orientation flying instead of just tail in swoops and circles. Oh yeah, i figured out self level on the M2 and its now working but waiting for hardware cuz i lost a tiny brass domed washer and a brass spacer. So thats where im at from March 1st to now. Im thinking July i might get a Trex 300x to learn more on what it takes to piece one together. Hopefully by september it will be complete and im off the self level flying!

This is a file for NX transmitters. The program retracts spoilerons when full throttle is applied. It uses flight modes. The program will work with NX transmitters and iX12 but not DX Gen 2 transmitters.

All -

I built H.A. Thomas's FM RANGER back in 2016. I enlarged it from the 24" span rubber powered model to a 32" span park 250 electric rc model. It flew O.K. but did not respond well on " rudder" steering. The dihedral just did not seem to be enough. I learned to fly it with that limitation but it just wasn't fun, and other projects led to it gathering dust. This spring, tiring of the pretty design setting on the shelf, i decided to take action. The wing covering was removed, the wing placed on the scroll saw and panels were cut carefully from the center section. The TLAR dihedral increase took place. The wing was recovered in blue litespan and a test flight showed it to fly like a totally different airplane - it is now very responsive and fun to fly. Sorry, but no video has been possible but when i can take one, it will be added to this post. The FM RANGER is a pretty design published in the June 1950 Flying Models , designed by H.A. Thomas. If anyone builds it, make sure to have enough dihedral ( or ailerons) and enjoy a very streamlined nice flying bird.

i'm now considering building the 24" original size for electric rc.....

Luscombe Phantom: Since I am arriving today at the National Luscombe Fly-In, I thought something from their inventory would be appropriate.

Don Luscombe, was a big shot at a little airplane company called Monocoupe during its early years and helped during the time Monocoupe was designing some of the most popular airplanes of the day and even producing some of the most popular engines. However in 1933 Mr. Luscombe embarked on his own journey. He founded Luscombe Aircraft Engineering Company.

Luscombe’s first design was the Phantom. If you squint really hard and look at it sideways, you could almost mistake it for a Monocoupe D-145. It is powered by the same 145hp Warner and shares the high wing taildragger configuration. It’s major difference however, was the construction method. The Phantom was made entirely out of metal. It had fabric covered wings and tail feathers, and everything else was aluminum skinned. It also featured an incredibly complex tunnel style cowling with individual passages for each cylinder. Another unique feature of the Phantom is its stainless steel split flaps that run almost the entire span of the wing including the majority of the aileron span.

The Phantom did fairly well in the performance category, however it was definitely on the luxury side of the airplane market and 1933 was not necessarily the year to be in that market. Only 25 Phantoms were produced before Luscombe moved on to cheaper airplanes.

This particular Phantom, is fresh...Continue Reading

I had a look in my box of goodies ..
I found a pair of 1.5g servos with JR connectors ..
And I still have a few FS2A Rx ( They be small ) that run fine on 1s .
So looks like I dont need to buy any stuffing for the Feather .

I will go with the laminating film for the wing covering .. Reading the instructions , apparently the tissue soaks in a lot of moisture .. And its very moist around here .
Interesting that the servos go in the wing .. That pod is small after all ( really small )

Ok . something to do when the weather is bad !
