Can anyone tell me what type this plug is called? It's for my jr x2720 and want to make some charging leads for my tx batteries, the closest plug I can find is a jst-ph but probably won't fit, when I search on Google it's just called a jr plug, not very helpfully. Pictures to follow. Any help would be great.

Airbus uses drones for aircraft inspections. The drone can take pictures of the airplanes and look for scratches, dents, and other damages. Airbus can then use those images to construct a 3D digital model of the plane that the company said can help prevent and reduce additional airplane damage. This cuts down the inspection time from two hours to 10 to 15 minutes.

Need to catch my blog up in documenting my start in the hobby.

Got my Eflite Spitfire and had been flying it pretty much anytime I could. I have a good 25+ flights into it and am now greasing landings without SAFE most of the time. There are some instances where crosswinds or being a little "hot" on my approach have me going around and I'll use SAFE to help me out there if I'm low to the deck, but that's the point for me... to use it to help out when I'm in a spot that I'm still learning. I'd say SAFE gets used about once every 3 flights for any significant reason... I do use it sometimes to relax and check my surroundings since my kids like to be out with me while I'm flying.

BUT... The Spit is on the shelf for a little bit. I had my first good crash with it the other day and it rattled me a little bit. I took it out and on my first TOFF it rolled left and I cut power and it dove into the high grass along my landing strip. It wasn't too high but had some speed and it took some paint off the leading edge. I cleaned out the grass, checked my surfaces again, taxied it, rebound it and tried another TOFF. Another left roll, tried to get it back on the ground and it went into the grass on the right when I over corrected between rudder and aileron. Again, nothing serious, just yellow paint off the leading edge. I about quit, but tried one more time. This time the roll hit harder and ran me into a pole that took a 1" x 1" chunk out of the...Continue Reading

Since summer is fully upon us in the UK, I have really been enjoying my freestyle flying. Constantly trying to learn new tricks which is very rewards.

Here is my latest video from a school playing field not far from my house.
A lot of fun

My Typhoon H CGO3+ camera was inconsistent in image quality. Most of the time it was excellent. But occasionally the distant focus was off. So I've got a replacement camera coming from Yuneec. After I called their customer service, the rep offered to swap it out, no questions asked. I was sent an RMA and a UPS shipping label, too. Once I proved that I had indeed dropped the camera off at a UPS Store they got my replacement shipped.

So I've been using my backup... the Chroma.

Here's my latest train video from it. These videos typically incorporate several different cameras. Both ground and airborne.

In this video I unbox this really attractive and well thought out quadcopter and give it a quick indoor flight to get a feel for how it will handle outdoors. It has a ton of really advanced features that typically only come on bigger and more expensive quads, so I can't wait to fly it outside!

Enjoy!

No flying for me for the last week. Too much wind during my entire weekend. Been like that all summer. seems like almost every day has 9 mph winds with gusts in the teens. Occasionally there is some quiet time for an hour or so early in the morning at 6-7am or sometimes between 7-8pm. It's getting more rare though.

So! I spent yesterday and part of today breaking airplane no.2 out of it's box (same model as my 1st one), assembling the empennage (tail section) and giving it its paint scheme and tail number.

This plane has a much more powerful motor than the 1st one. My first one, 129 NF (the last picture with the red nose section and red tail trim) has a 4100Kva Inrunner on the gearbox. This 2nd plane is going to have a 5400Kva Inrunner. I gave it the tail number 216 NF. I simply rearranged the numbers and flipped over the 9

Because it has more power, It's getting a slightly bigger Lipo Battery. As you might be able to see in the picture, I also replaced the fixed plastic tail wheel with a home made steerable tail wheel set up. This adds some weight to the tail, so I'll have to add some weight to the nose to counter this along with the larger battery in order to keep it balanced.

With any luck I'll be flying it in a couple of weeks.

When I removed the horizontal stabilizer out of the box, I noticed that the foam was bent so that it had a negative dihedral (Stab was lower at the tips than at the root. To fix this, I mounted it to the fuselage anyway. Then after...Continue Reading

My newest toy is this Foote Westerner C, with a wingspan of 85". Originally built and flown by Dave Acker as an electric, I did a refurb with new covering and installed my Thunder Tiger GP10 glow engine in the nose, along with a Fuji film canister for a fuel tank.

The tank provides enough fuel for a full power climb to well over 1500 feet. I usually motor on up to around 800-900 feet or so and shut it down, and its all thermals from there. Man, this thing sure does love to climb in lift! It's as ugly as a turkey vulture, in my opinion, but it thermals so well, crawling around at all of one mile an hour and floating upward on the slightest hint of rising air, that it becomes beautiful in my eyes. Funny how that works. Gotta love them funky old timers!
