Yesterday I was running a brand new DLE 20 for the first time. I have independent batteries for receiver and ignition. The engine idled nicely and as I increased power to 50% the engine shut down. No biggie. However the ignition and all receiver power was lost. The entire electronic system died. If I was quick and lower the throttle I could recover the receiver and engine power. In the air this is not acceptable. The receiver was an Admiral 8 channel bound to Spectrum DS8 powered by a JR NiMH 700. The ignition is powered by Glacier 2s 2200 LiPo with an Rcxel optical kill switch. Any ideas on why and solutions. I have a brand new spectrum 6 channel receiver to try tonight.

Here is a link to the Video:

Time to relax and have some fun with this Parkjet ;-)
Maybe learn a new trick or two in the process.
I'm amazed at the extremely wide flight envelope this Parkjet has and how stable it is.
When it's time to rebild this Pakjet I have a couple of changes in mind that will make it even better.
So much fun!

Here's what it cost me to Build this Parkjet ;-)

Ground Control F22 Mini V2 – BNF Build $49.01 | PNF Build $38.42

That's pretty darn Cheap I'd say ;-)

I'd like to see a Factory Plane that inexpensive that can Fly this well ;-)

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Beginner to Intermediate.
Beginner setup is a 2S Power System with a 6x4 Prop.
Intermediate setup is a 3S Power System with a 6x3 Prop.
It's a great Trainer on a 2S Power System, Fast & Acrobatic with a 3S Power System.

Plans are available to Youtube Subscribers & Patrons!

Pictures of F-86 that is for sale.
The jet weighs 13.8 without batts. That’s rounding up as I tried to balance it as steady as possible on the scale. As stated in the for sale thread it has some rash and prior repaired landing damage. The previous owner said he flew it in its current condition. I’m only selling as I’m flying my Baron more, and baby needed her fuel pumps overhauled. All four of them. I think it’s a sound model. I just realized I won’t get to it anytime soon and it’s time to let it go.
Thanks guys.

Every year the Wintonbury Flying Club holds their two day Giant Scale Fly-In at their wonderful club field in Bloomfield, CT at the end of the summer. This year's event took place on August 31 and September 1.

Both days were graced with fantastic weather with fair skies and light variable winds! We were able to make it out to the event on the second day of the event to fly and take photos.

There were a wide variety of aircraft types out on the flight line; from WWI trainers to a bunch of WWII fighters. Even the odd giant scale electric model and turbine could be found!

Here is the link to the entire gallery that features 550 photos from Sunday's event:

In the mean time, here are a few sample images from the set:

The West-East Electricity Transfer Project is one of the landmark projects in the development of western China. In this project, Changji-Guquan ±1100 kV UHV DC power transmission project is one of the landmark projects. It is also the UHV transmission project with the highest voltage level, the largest transmission capacity, the longest transmission distance and the most advanced technology level in China. This project has set a new height in the world's power grid technology and started a new era in the development of UHV DC power transmission technology.

According to reports, Changji-Guquan ±1100 kV UHV DC power transmission project is the "Power Silk Road" connecting Xinjiang and East China. It can transmit 66 billion kWh of electricity to East China every year, and that can light up 400 million 30-watt lamps at the same time. It can same time.electricity demand of 50 million households in East China. At the same time, it can reduce coal transportation by 30.24 million tons. If it is calculated by train capacity, it needs 25,000 20-compartment trains.

How to ensure the constant and safe electricity supply of the "Power Silk Road"? On September 1st, the reporter took this question into the hinterland of the Gurbantunggut Desert in Jimsar County, Changji Hui Autonomous Prefecture, Xinjiang Autonomous Region, and closely watched the circuit inspection of the Xinjiang Power Grid. From afar, the insulators used in ±1100 kV UHV DC power transmission...Continue Reading

What is the carbon fibre sheet?

What is carbon fibre?

Carbon fibre composes of fibre atoms bonded together with one after the other, in the form of chains. It is due to the strength of these bonds that carbon fibre is quite strong. Along with being strong, carbon fibres are really lightweight. Almost five times lighter than steel, but still five times stronger. Which gives carbon fibres an upper hand.
As it is the most lightweight, yet strong material available in the market today, it is used for a variety of applications, in many different forms. This fibre comes in many different building blocks, such as weaves, yarn, unidirectional, braids, and others, which are used to create composites.

What is carbon fibre sheet?

The carbon fibre is made up of really thin fibres, which are twisted together to form a yarn. This yarn is, again, woven into a fabric, called the fibre fabric. This fabric is available in a variety of weaves. The lighter carbon sheets have between 3K to 6K thin fibres in a yarn. The heavier carbon sheets, however, can have up to 12,000 thin fibers per yarn.
Different kinds of fibre sheets have different strength properties. The most common kinds of carbon fabric sheets are, harness satin weave, plain weave, unidirectional and twill weave. Before you buy a weave, there are two things you need to keep in mind about them. They are their functionality and their appearance.
Every weave has a different look, and people tend to choose the weave...Continue Reading

The servos DOMAN S2003MD and S2000MD are now available with digital position feedback without the need of additional wires.

How to

To get the current angle, send a 50us (microsecond) pulse to the servo motor. The servo will pull the control wire high after the microseconds that represent the current position. This can be done using Arduino:

pinMode(pin, OUTPUT);
digitalWrite(pin, HIGH);
delayMicroseconds(50); // send a 50 us pulse to get the current position
digitalWrite(pin, LOW);
pinMode(pin, INPUT);
int position = pulseIn(pin, HIGH); //e.g. 500-2500

Teach and Replay
Wire the servo as shown below:


Press enter on the serial monitor (enable Carriage return) to teach the current angle. 3 angles can be teached. Press enter to replay the angles.

Mirror movement
Wire two servos according to:

Move the servo connected to pin 9. The servo on pin 10 should follow. Open the serial plotter to view the read angle.

I don't know what to say = I'm just not good enough to fly it !
All I did was crash the Invader till I broke it !

Whats the problem ?
I can't play with the supplied remote .
Left stick is Elevator , right stick is throttle and aileron .
I simply can't do it .

It goes against every fibre of my Mode 2 brain .

Anyhow , when I got to my CG test spot , the wind started to pick up .
This kind of makes CG testing a little challenging with a new model .
Also the configuration of the Tx really messed with me ..
Every single time that something happened that required REFLEXES to correct the sticky situation = I just made it worse .
I lost count of the number of times I smacked terra firma with the Invader .

Currently the Invader is resting and being glued back together .
Will I try again = HELL NO !

I will remove the flight board and put it away with the Tx for another project where no mixing is required .
Just does not work for me in this wing - Might be ok in a glider .

I have already ordered a brushed ESC , so will pop in a micro 4ch Rx and just bind to my Taranix Q x7 .

So is there a gripe !
YES = The supplied battery is garbage ..
I tried to charge it and the voltage jumped all over the place .
I tried to discharge it and the voltage dropped immediately and the charger stopped .
Cant charge the battery , cant discharge it . = Junk ..

Yes = I hate the Tx configuration .. Just makes me feel icky all over .

I got a good price on the drone. brand new in the box. I put a spectrum FPV racing rx on it, but I can't get it to work. does anyone have suggestions? This is the first drone I've had, and I'm afraid I don't have a clue about them.

I've recently completed my review of the fatshark attitude v5 including the obvious comparisons between the now competitive $240 - $300 FPV market. These have replace my Aomway Commander V1s as my regular goggles and here is why:
  • They have bright and clear OLED screen which allow me to see more detail
  • They have the removable module that allows you to upgrade to rapidfire etc. if desired.
  • They have very good antennas included as stock
  • They have the legendary Fatshark support
They do of course have their downsides including fatshark's stubborn refusal to integrate more of their "modular" design but I (personally) feel these are outweighed by their benefits.
