# Flysky AFHDS3 NB4 / PL18 Bind Problems?

Posted by DutchRC | Jan 12, 2022 @ 12:05 PM | 30,612 Views
Hi there RC people

I recently ran into a problem with my Flysky NB4 Noble (trigger) radio, but might just as well have run into this problem with the PL18 radio..
It wasn't hard to solve IF understand what the cause is (firmware version on radio very NEW)..

Hope it helps some people out..

# tracks on a micro brick-part 3

Posted by phil alvirez | Jan 12, 2022 @ 08:22 AM | 30,615 Views
see part 2 here: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...-micros-part-2
trying to understand what the 2 strips in the linear servos tracks do, i got these answers from John:
" As the servo carriage moves up and down the amount of red resistor in the circuit between A and B varies linearly from zero to 5K. ".
if i were pushing a pot, the mechanical action changes the amount of current, but here is the opposite:
i send the signal, and then it somehow makes the carriage move in the direction needed.
i know that the motor turns 1 way or the other and this pushes the carriage, but how the motor gets the signal for that and decides the amount? answer:
the servo circuit has a part that creates a square wave pulse. It is essentially a square wave signal generator. The width of the pulse is set by the resistance of the red bit which is an input to the generator. At the same time the incoming transmitter signal creates a square wave pulse. Both of these pulses can vary from 1000us to 2000uS.
A comparator circuit in the servo chip compares the two pulse widths. If they are the same nothing happens. If they are different the difference or “error” signal drives the motor in the correct direction to make them the same. When they are the same the motor stops.

Posted by Tazkiller85 | Jan 12, 2022 @ 05:58 AM | 30,702 Views
🧐Yep Les Amis,
Selon LilRockFPV, Du REGAL ! Et je confirme ... Nous testons aujourd'hui les petits karting au 1/76 de chez Diatone, les Q33 ! Quand je les ai reçu, j'ai été très déçu par ces petits engins car trop habitué aux Turbo Racing. Mais je me trompais ! Il ne faut surtout pas mettre ces petits engins en concurrence... Comme vous allez le constater dans ce test avec LilRock, on a vraiment pris du plaisir et les possibilités de jeux sont nombreuses, courses, combats, soccer ou le chat et la souris, bref, elles sont excellentes pour l'initiation au pilotage en immersion et pour les journée pluvieuse ! Prenez soin de vous (et des autres) et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

# Foam Board Dusty

Posted by rickp | Jan 11, 2022 @ 08:48 AM | 26,135 Views
Inspired by Scotto's EZ Duster, I'm adding a Mustang based Dusty to the build list as well.
Both the Kaos and Dusty will use a Mustang wing and empennage, the major change being wildly differing fuselages.
And to make it easy to find, the foam board Kaos is blogged here.

# Obscure Airplane Highlight of the Day : Garland-Lincoln LF-1

Posted by Calypso6858 | Jan 11, 2022 @ 08:21 AM | 25,003 Views
Garland-Lincoln LF-1: While WWI replicas are their own genre of airplanes these days with kits available for all sorts of them, the Garland-Lincoln started the trend long ago.

The Garland-Lincoln Nieuport replica is local to me and when I was browsing through some photos of it the other day I came across a familiar name in one of the captions, Claude Flagg. Considering I own one of Flagg’s other airplanes this caught my interest and I had to do some more research. Turns out that the name LF-1 stands for Lincoln Flagg - 1. Garland Lincoln provided airplanes for Hollywood in the 1930s and he needed some Nieuports apparently. He called on experienced designer Claude Flagg to take care of that for him.

Documentation says there were 3 LF-1s built, however I can only find any record or photos of 1 of them, N12237. The airplane was designed and built by Flagg to replicate the Nieuport 28 while offering better performance and aerobatics for the movie screens. It was initially powered by a J-4 Wright when it was completed in 1932 but spent most of its career with a 220hp Continental on it.

The LF-1 wasn’t a footnote in history either, it made quite a career for itself in its long and colorful life. It spent time as an airshow performer and racer in the hands of Kip Monè. It flew for Garland Lincoln in the movies Hell in the Heavens, Dawn Patrol and Men with Wings. It was owned by Frank Tallman when he and Paul Mantz created Tallmantz. It then performed in Get Smart, The...Continue Reading

# Avonik B18 Elevator Tool

Posted by WattsSabi | Jan 10, 2022 @ 08:40 PM | 25,686 Views
B18s have the elevator servo in the fuselage behind the wing, and run a rod back to the horn on the control surface. The rod is terminated with a clevis which must be spread to accept the hole in the control horn. Except the clevis is inside the fuse, at a section with a very narrow diameter! This tool is inserted into a small hole in the bottom of the fuse (the horn enters from the top), and when twisted it will open the clevis so you can insert the horn.
1) Find you least favorite cheap "L" shaped allen wrench in 1/16" or 1.5 mm size
2) Grind the sides orthogonal to the "L" plane flat starting about 1/3" from the long end, to the end of the long end
3) Put a little epoxy on the ground section, take peice of carbon tow 5-6" long, hold one end below the ground section, and wrap it tightly up to the tip and back to the starting end, leaving no exposed metal (this is to ensure the final result does not spin and helps avoid breakage
4) Cut a rectangle of carbon cloth about 1/3" high and 2/3" inch long, ideally with a tape backing (electrical tape works well) and brush epoxy onto it (wet it, extra is not needed)
5) One the tow wrap is reasonably stiff but not cured (say 5 mins on 5 min epoxy), fold the above rectangle over the tow such that both ends stick out an equal amount from the allen wrench and the top of the rectangle is at or just slightly past the tip of the wrench, tape side out, and such that...Continue Reading

# DX6G3-understanding the manual

Posted by phil alvirez | Jan 10, 2022 @ 04:46 PM | 25,924 Views
https://www.horizonhobby.com/on/dema...-Manual_EN.pdf
am starting this with the purpose of being able to use this radio for my goals, and thinking that are others in the same situation.
there are some things that are not clear to me so am making comments about it.
am getting directly into the System Setup, page 14:
the 1st thing we need to know is how to turn it ON:
1-to enter, press /hold the roller
2-turn the switch ON
3-release the roller.
now you are in. you see the screen illuminated.
it shows the 1st of 2 pages. if you want to search for more functions just keep pressing and the rest will appear.
for this, in system setup, you dont need the receiver to be connected.
next is:
Model Select
1-roll to the desired model memory in the list
2-press roller. you are back to the system setup list.
here the manual talks about adding a model , but this to me is the same as "create a new model" in page 17.
next is Model Type
just choose which is this model and press roller
Model Name
this is as shown. no changes.
next shows the 3 types.
but if you have a sailplane with motor you cant choose sailplane.
you have to choose airplane, so all the alternatives at the table for sailplane cant be used.
