UpNup has several meanings to me.

1. A little electric Champ I started out with flew up and up and out of sight about the time that I discovered RCgroups.com. I needed a handle and chose this one.

2. A person who is on the up and up is someone I admire. It’s all about integrity. J R Ewing on Dallas was asked how he could be so terrible to others. He said, “It’s easy if you have no integrity.” I would like for others to see me as a follower of Jesus who walks the talk. A guy that can be trusted, valued, genuine, and honest.

My life verse from the Bible is Philippians 2:13: “For it is God who is at work in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.” That’s a pretty high calling.

I wanted to run the "Stunt Tank" version of Cox International's new aluminum backplate today, and rather than build up another engine, I chose a faithful old friend that's dragged assorted flying machines around the Hill and S.M.A.L.L's for a long time.

With no changes other than new gaskets and pick-up tube, the old Golden Bee got it's backplate swapped, and was bolted to the stand and cranked up. I'd put several runs on the Babe Bee, but I decided to REALLY run it's golden sibling by doing on-the-run refuels just for the heck of it.

Once settled into it's run, the GB was real steady, and probably would have flown the B.O.T. all the way to Little Rock if it could have lifted the fuel. After 20 minutes or so, I let it run out it's fuel with no needle-fiddling along the way.

One note to any new-comers: While the old hands all know this...it is important to use the fillister style backplate screws to prevent fuel leaks. I just used the GB's originals in the test, with no leakage, but I think Matt and Bernie stock them if you need replacements.

The last photo is the answer to a question that arose, asking if the aluminum backplate has a steel insert to accept the needle valve. The magnet says, "Yes!"


So now, the Q-Tee is on charge, and we may sneak a flight in later today.

Halloa people,

I recently did a "first looks" and simulator-test video on the new Jumper T-Lite radio and that is very nice ofcourse BUT does it actually work as a radio?? :P

Link to it: Jumper T-Lite 2.4Ghz radio

Eventhough this is NOT a long range radio at all we'll see if it can at least get a drone 1Km out there ...

With all the rules restricting fun with drones it's about time to go bigger and lighter. Here is my take on a 5" FPV drone. Currently I'm under 236 grams using a BetaFPV SMO4k and a small Tattu 4s 450mAh Lipo. However, I'm planing on switching to Gaoneng 3s 1100mAh (130C). The frame is a Gatehunter X by Dave_C_FPV, motors are 2004 3150kv by Brotherhobby.

Today I took my Tamiya TT-02 Monster Truck out for a more harder test and I ran it on 3S. It works perfectly so far! I'm quite happy with the result!

PS. This is not a TT-02B with bigger wheels!

Tamiya TT-02 Extreme Hill Climb! (4 min 30 sec)

Posted by sandet01 | Yesterday @ 12:42 AM | 1,864 Views
Made the jump and got an X10S-E, which put me into the world of widget writing, and how to convert my older telemetry script to the new environment. To sum, as of ver 2.3.11, OpenTX has not made it easy.

See the older post about using it for the Taranis, first.

Widgets are supposed to be scalable, so one can use them in various sized "zones" on the radio screen. There are no functions to help with that. One has to determine all the sizes of the various zones, and then custom create individual screens for each size. There is no automatic way to confine something to a zone, so easy to draw "outside the box" if one does not pay attention. And many of the lcd functions available for the Taranis do not function for the color radios. I gave up - just too many screens, and too much information presented, to spend the many hours writing code that all the different sizes would require. So all items on the screen are hard coded for their positions. Things will get ugly if the area of a widget is different than noted below.

I have yet to fully understand "options" for widgets. So while there are two color options available, best to just leave them as is.

Widgets do not currently support "Events" - the press of the menu keys for navigation/incrementing of values. I instead emulated by use of either the Elevator stick, or the Rudder stick. The screens tell you what to do.

One additional trick: If you top off your...Continue Reading

I'll share some setup files for the Spektrum NX series transmitters in this page of my blog.

In posts below you'll find:
- Acro (airplane) model with three transmitter flight modes (to go with three receiver flight modes) plus a throttle cut mode

I usually post a PDF file with each model setup that has step-by-step instructions for creating the model yourself on your transmitter. I always encourage people to do that, as you'll probably learn a lot about your transmitter as you do it. The transmitter manuals cover all of the configuration screens, but they really don't tell you what to do with them. The flexibility of the transmitter is wonderful, but it can be daunting to learn how everything works without specific examples and applications. I think it's helpful to go through setting up a model with a specific goal in mind.

I've posted model info specific to using the NX series with RealFlight on my RealFlight 9.5 blog page.

I have a separate blog entry about the Basics of Dual Rate and Expo.

There are other model files in other pages in my blog that have model setups for the Gen2 DX series which can be imported on the NX series.

Hi
A mini review and some small upgrades on the Volantex Phoenix V2 2000mm Wingspan EPO glider.

My Shopping experience:
Bought the first one on Banggood. It went missing somewhere in China 😊
Banggood sent me a second one. Arrived broken☹
The third one I have ordered from https://www.der-schweighofer.at/. It’s under the name “MODSTER PHOENIX V2 2000MM” (same plane) and they had a big discount. This time, it has arrived in mint condition.

What I like:
Plug-in system for the wings on the fuselage using a snap lock (see pic.).
Flap servo is “inverted” (see pic.). You can use two standard servos for flaps with Y connection.
A lot of place in the front fuselage. Got an elevated “balcony” for the receiver (see pic.).
Plastic fuselage.

What I don’t like:
Very low-grade servos. 3 broke after few flights without any hard landings.
A bit heavy and needs about 15gr in the tail for a 3S 2200mah.
Spinner looks a bit flimsy.

Flight experience:
It flies a bit faster than Multiplex EasyGlider.
I do not think that it's very good with thermal soaring. Did not fly a lot so I am not sure about it. Please comment on this if you have other experience.

Some ideas:
Address the servos issue!
If you choose to stay with the original servos: Check servos carefully before each takeoff and
Install servo covers.
There is an opening in the rear end of the body that enables you to add a balancing weight inside the body.
I have added a tube inside the body where the wing rods are (see pic.). That prevents the rods from contacting the servo cables each time I insert them.
I have changed to Aero-naut propeller.

Bottom line, for the right price it is a very nice value for money PNP glider…

I almost finished my Tamiya TT-02 Chassis to Monster Truck Conversion and its ready to run! So i took it outside for a quick test drive! I think it looks great and it run quite well so far. I first ran it on a 2S Lipo to see how it goes!
