Yep Les Amis,
SMO or NAKED ? That is the question ! J'ai en test depuis quelques temps la petite Insta 360 SMO qui a été développée en collaboration avec BetaFPV. J'avais quelques aprioris sur le fait de devoir passer par un logiciel de stabilisation mais tout compte fait, quand on compare à la difficulté d'obtenir ou de se fabriquer une Gopro Naked et à sa fragilité, c'est vrai que la SMO est un excellent compromis niveau rapport qualité prix et utilisation. Donc j'adopte aisément cette nouvelle petite caméra pour mes prochains vol en HD, que ce soit sur des petits ou gros racers. La coque solide et les lentilles de protection sont très rassurants en cas de petits crashs ou contacts ( j'en suis déjà à ma deuxième Naked et un objectif changé sur la deuxième ! ). En bref, je valide ! ... Prenez soin de vous et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

Feathers DLG , a look in the box (4 min 7 sec)



Came in the mail today .
Finally got one at a price I was prepared to pay .
Projected weight is high !
Also the Feathers needs building and covering !

I dare say that the UMX Whipit might be a far better option for 99% of the people .
It's lighter , it's built - add a battery / do a bind , set it up per instructions and go have fun .
And it's very close on the money , except that with the feathers you still need the stuffing ( Rx / servos ) , oh and to build the feathers .
Hmmmmm ,

Now that I have seen the feathers in the flesh ( well the kit ) , I would's highly recommend the whip .
Unless like me , you just gota have it .
Better bring your kit building A game for this one !
The better it's built - the better it will fly .

1440p yields more image data on a 4:3 sensor camera, and we can still format to 16:9 without losing anything. This video walks you through it:

An alphabetical stroll through the history of aviation. Day 26, Z

Zenith Z6: How many biplanes do you know of that have seven seats? Probably not very many. The Zenith is in a very small class of large cabin biplanes.

The Zenith was built in 1927, a time when most major aviation advancements were made with biplanes. Zenith built the first Z-6 with a five seat cabin up front and a single open cockpit behind. Very similar to the design of the Boeing 40 series of biplanes. However the Zenith has a slightly more rotund look to it. The prototype was powered by a 220hp Wright but presumably didn’t have great performance. The following 8 Zeniths (the entire production run) Had 420hp Pratt & Whitney R-1320s and carried six passengers up front.

There doesn’t seem to be much history on what exactly the nine Zeniths that were produced were used for. However the history of the one survivor has remained. It was used by Bennett Airlines in Idaho unil it was eventually converted into a crop duster by replacing the front cabin with a hopper. It was found in this condition and restored back to airworth condition which it remains in today on display at Creve Coeur MO....Continue Reading

An alphabetical stroll through the history of aviation. Day 25, Y

Yokosuka Navy Type 3: Yeah, that’s a mouthful. It can also be called the Avro 504 and that is much easier to spell.

In WWI, with all the fun rotary powered fighters around, there was a need for boring trainers. Avro answered the need with the 504. The 504 was powered by a seemingly endless list of engines and was also built under license by several companies. Over 10,000 were built throughout it’s production lifespan.

The Japanese variant was license built by Yokosuka. It was identical to the Avro in the airframe department, it was just powered by a japanese engine. At first they were powered by en english motor as well. A version of the Armstrong Mongoose that was license built by Mitsubishi. Eventually it was replaced with the Gasuden Jimpu 2 160hp radial.

Maybe not the most noteworthy airplane in the world, but there was actually 464 of them produced....Continue Reading

My PineCil soldering Iron arrived today. Not a bad delivery time, bought it on the 18th so just over 3 weeks to get here.

Nice little smart soldering Iron. It doesn't come with any cables and just one tip but it has options for USB-c and a DC jack. I was able to hook it up to my Nokia QC charger at 12V and my battery charger power adaptors DC jack at 16V and both have worked perfectly. On the 16V power brick it got to 350 C in less then a minute.

The tips are standard TS-100 style tips and its really comfortable to hold. Its even designed for the case to be removed and there are 2 other cases available, red and clear plastic. It has an earthing point on the Iron as well.

Good menu and plenty of user controls including a sleep timer and an auto shut off.

Really happy with it so far. Now I just have to give it a good run to see if it will be worth using as a daily driver or just a small toolkit type iron.

Got a new lens this one is a 12-24mm F4 G so trying it out. Was lucky to get out to fly it was 62F a bit cold but there are thermals in winter. I caught some thermals... I read/watched the wing's default shape (no flapperon movement) is in speed mode, so the cruising/thermal mode is some millimeters down. So yeah... it was a great day almost no wind later on. The flat sink rate was nuts my AUW is 8.4oz and was able to do 2 minute flat flights in dead air from a launch. That's if you seldomly turn, just keep it flying flat most of the time.

No video, nothing interesting to show but also the weeds were in the way, most of the time the 12mm was too wide/plane is too small in frame. I also need to remember to buy some spray for my head, these gnats were brutal just chasing me around.

Hoping for a better weather day, one day a friend will help me film it.

Yeap, still looking unpleasantly thicc to need to diet, start lifting again.

Update next day

Made a 16g ballast from a dead tube battery. Was able to launch/fly a boomer, sadly I did not film it, (didn't check camera was recording doh)... did film today, will post video.

I got sidetracked from the A-9 build for a few days cutting dividers for music genres.
One of the original "dry goods" store on historic Beale Street here in Memphis is adding
a "Memphis Music" display for vinyl albums.
