UMX TT with a tail (5 min 40 sec)

Got up 6am , My back was aching ! So walkies and fly time !

The TT has a tail added to the antenna , and there was a slight improvement !

After the flight , I came home and right away changed the location of the tail . wrapping it around the fuse a little . ( Just like I mentioned in the video )

This might help get rid of the dead zone ? ( might )

Hmmmmmmmmm , mmmmmm Do I bother trying to tune the tail ?

Lots off Woolly weather on the way .

Bellanca Bomber: A very unique evolution of a successful single engined airliner into a twin engined bomber.

In the early 1930s Bellanca had found success with their Aircruiser and Airbus series aircraft. Due to it痴 sleek design and lifting struts, it was an extremely efficient airplane. To boot, it had a useful load equal to its own weight. One of very few airplanes at the time to boast such a claim. However Bellanca had his eyes set on a military contract.

In an attempt to gain the eyes of the US military, Bellanca heavily modified an Aircruiser into a bomber named the 77-140. The wingspan was increased from 65 to 77 and the fuselage and belly were modified, presumably to house bombs. The single center engine was removed and replaced with a rotating open turret with two 30 caliber machine guns. The two Wright R-1820s were instead mounted forward facing on the wings above the landing gear.

The US military was not interested in the airplane however Bellanca did find a customer for a few of them. The Columbian Air Force ordered four modified bombers to be named the 77-320. The new version swapped the open turret on the nose for a closed turret and they exchanged the spatted fixed tail dragger landing gear for a set of pylon mounted floats. Reportedly the pilots of the Columbian Air Force were intimidated by the airplane and were afraid to fly them. At least one of them was destroyed in a fire accident, and it seems that none of the others have survived either.

Torque limitations gave way to TPU issues, as the ship was a lot noisier. Upon further inspection, the front tires had developed a flat part. The flat part remaned for an entire 9 mile drive. Most disappointing if TPU gets permanently deformed from being held in the same position. It's not a very good camera platform in its newly acquired bouncy form. The rear tires being slightly stiffer didn't have the deformation. There wasn't any heat wave when they were in storage. Maybe the ship could be stored on blocks.

The flat part tended to be heavier. They may always end up stored with the same part on the bottom, causing a flat part to grow. Tires are only going to get more flexible & prone to deformation.

Quick Notes:

I have not tested these but just want to write these down for future reference when racing at a big event with dry/grooved up conditions and these are recommendations from AKA Team drivers:

FDJ Clear - always use on new set of tires to get them to soak up sauce better

Clay Compound: Liquid Wrench
FDJ Red for Pin tires
FDJ Green for bar tires
FDJ Gold for wet conditions

Sauce tires about 10 min before the race and bake on tire warmers, wipe tires dry

In a previous video I took my HSP 94111 to the beach for some fun but the ESC kept overheating, so I upgraded it with an 120A ESC and it worked perfectly this time. it's actually quit fast. The HSP 94111 is quit heavy so you definitely need an bigger ESC. I don't know if a 80A or 100A will be sufficient though!

I'm sorry for the noise of the wind, vert windy day again. I tried to reduce it but some is left!

I personally enjoyed assembling it, so if you like it, Buy it here!

Yep Les Amis,
Tout 軋 pour 軋 ?... Je les attendais avec impatience et j'avais h穰e de tester ces nouvelles FATSHARK Attitude V6. Et bien je ne vous cacherai pas ma, ou plutt notre d馗eption ! En effet, avec toute l'exp駻ience de ce constructeur, nous nous attendions beaucoup mieux dans tous les domaines. J'applaudi le fait d'avoir voulu nous sortir une paire de lunette FPV moins de 300, c'est un gros effort de la part de Fatshark, mais si c'est pour abaisser les performances et le confort, je dis non ! Il aurait mieux valu approcher les 350 et ajouter du Oled et du confort selon moi. En bref, si vous n'avez que 290 et que vous voulez absolument des Fatshark, allez y ... Mais perso, je r馭l馗hirais
... Bon Film et merci tous pour votre soutien .

Greetings good people!

I normally don't post any issues here with Shipping of items from RC Vendors but, this one I need to share and make sure you all have an acknowledgement of what is going on with FREE or very inexpensive shipping via USPS and those RC Vendors who use Priority Mail from USPS.

EDIT: I am not in the least blaming Garret from Altitude Hobbies for this as he and I are not in control over the rather bizarre COVID-19 situations and USPS places a RED bar on top of any Tracking Page explaining this. The even more strange thing was today I received another package all the way from ROWLETT, TEXAS and it originated there (Shipped) on Feb 1st and arrived today Feb 3rd and it was USPS Parcel Select Ground! It does NOT make any sense!

My package from Altitude Hobbies has arrived in my Seminole-Orlando Distribution (Priority Mail) and departed this Distribution Center on 21st of January. Of which it still has not arrived at my "Local" Post Office Hub since today, February 3rd. The Distribution Center is less than 20 miles away and I can't get anyone at USPS to give me a reason for this delay.

It just SUCKS!

Worse is the vendor who I purchased these items saying that this is NORMAL based on Priority Mail!

Check out my latest e-mail to this vendor!

I've reviewed the new SG 1604 and SG 1603 1/16 skid car and it is a whole lot of fun to drive but not until you've made a couple of key changes. Good thing they are easy to make and I've documented in a step by step guide alongside the review here:
