After many years of concentrating on building a post and beam garage and servicing cars, house systems etc., finally resuming r/c. Many if not most planes need a little finessing to get them in good shape. The flashback kit I bought here (as jim e) and the canopy was crinkled, never said a word to seller ) was hidden by instructions in sealed sleeve so not his fault) and then proceeded to make it worse. Have to redo magnet system or use another method to secure canopy (Velcro?). The foam sportser is ready, just do not like how the motor goes wild if you turn off the tx while battery is hooked up-probably the airtronics rx so may change. My fry sky equipment is now "legacy" but still should work okay. Here's to hoping to,learn knife edge after 37 years of flying r/c. Oh and I hope to get a lot more organized!!

It was a windy day - 15 mph with 30 degree crosswind - but I wanted to try out a second camera on my EF 95" Extra 330SC-E. This one was taped to the top of the canopy facing the tail.

This was the fourth flight of the day, the third with cameras. It wasn't my best sequence work - the negative snaps exiting the P Loop were both off - but it was the only flight that I remembered to clean the splattered bugs off the canopy before takeoff!

These videos help me spot all of my errors that I miss from the ground.

ガラスクロスでWTC上下接合部を補強。
ピンホール対策で内外エポキシ樹脂を塗布。電気ストーブで温め(熱し)ながら塗布し、
ピンホールの空気を膨張させて冷ましながら樹脂を浸み込ませるようにしてみた。
バラストタンク内側上面は、フルバラスト時に気泡が付着しないように平滑に仕上げた。

前後の開口部の蓋を作る。接着面積を増やすために凸型状とした。
蓋と隔壁を弾性エポキシで接着してWTCを組み上げる。
そして、防水が出来ているか、水槽に沈めて水密テストを行った。
水深30㎝で2時間放置。後部メカ室に浸水がありました。
後部の蓋に穴を開け、水を抜き、パイプを接着し、エアポンプで換気をして内部の乾燥。
パイプにシリコンチューブを繋ぎ水槽で漏れ箇所をチェックすると、ピンホールが3か所残って
いるのが判明。
瞬間接着剤でピンホールを埋め。
再度水槽に沈めて水密テストを行った。1時間放置で漏れなしだったので合格。

maverick 3-the ultimate
the maverick 3 is basically the same as the previous 2.
when realized that i couldnt find another way to improve its performance by design, i tried to improve its structure.
so the only change is the fuselage, which is now carbon fiber/kevlar.
i found the magellan 2 meters the most suitable. and it is (or was) available at the time.
http://www.icare-rc.com/magellan_e.htm
Magellan-E - ICARUS
The Magellan electric is the continuing effort in development after the popular Carbon D-light and Koleos series of electric gliders from ICARE.They are based on the same moulded carbon D-box technology that made the Carbon D-light so successful. This type of construction results in a very strong, light wing and a very accurate airfoil shape over the leading edge - the most important part of ...
www.icare-rc.com

it ended up being stronger, with more room, and more streamlined. and still better performance!
i had to modify it extensively due to that it has a longer tail moment and shorter nose moment. the solution was to move the wing back 30mm. this required substancial changes, but works fine. also the tail is designed for v and mine is t. the end is wide open so i made a fairing to streamline it. but it worked fine.

Broken Mini DLG pro @ the Sink Hole ( After repairs ) (2 min 29 sec)


Yes !

HK Mini DLG pro is back in the air !
Ok , it did need a lot of trimming before I was happy , in fact the battery in the action cam gave out just before I found the sweet spot !

The Mini DLG pro was really stalling out when turned into the breeze .
And I found it hard to put that much down elevator into the model to stop it lifting its nose into the breeze .
I will have to check the angle of attack on that wing , it might be too high !
Especially as the model is not overly sensitive to the elevator . ( Rearward CG )

Still , probably the best hang time for a HK DLG so far for me ! ( It was the only really good Chuck for the day ) except for the last two before going home , they were ok as well . ( Just no cam footage )

Got some extra wood laying around the house? Why not build your own Do-It-Yourself (DIY) FPV Start Block?!? It keeps your Quad’s props clear from tall grass and gives it a “Starting Chance!” Launch yourself into the realm of possibilities with the FPV Start Block, Launch Block, Launch Pad or whatever else you want to call it-just build it!🏁

So since being back in the hobby and learning some of the new standards like 2.4Ghz radios, I also had to learn about all things involved with electric flight. One of these things was the use of lipo batteries. Some folks have implanted this fear in me that lipos can blow up at what others may feel is a very slight issue. And granted things can happen if they are improperly charged, handled, etc. So, while I charge things carefully, as with anyone, mistakes and incidents can happen. I had 2 incidents with 2 different lipos in my collection...one was shorted out briefly and the other had some physical damage in a crash. At first, I feared they would catch fire moments after the incidents occurred, but so far nothing has happened yet. So, I'm going to document this experience and just see if these batteries are still stable enough to use...OR if they do indeed need to be disposed of.

Facing Lipo Fears: Part 1: Shorted out and damaged... Are these batteries safe to use? (7 min 50 sec)

Flew the Astro Jeff in some wind the other day it . May need bigger control surfaces, it’s very sluggish with turns and does not turn tightly will need to fly it more to get a better feel for what needs to be changed.

I converted my Super Supra to Electric it flys with a Hacker B40 with a gearbox on a 2 cell Lipo . It’s great not to have to set up the winch to fly her. Thanks Rich for getting me sorted on full house set up with my DX 9 it’s like a new plane now.
