My navy radio control boat
Posted by Bowman_1949 | Today @ 07:51 PM | 129 Views
Hello
I have a fragmaster printed Inspire 1.5, radiolink 10ii 12dsm, radiolink mini pix, 15.5 carbon props, 750 pancake motors. I have balanced front to back. Side to side. Propeller line. Radiolink mission planner.

It is running well all turns the way it supposed to. But it wants to take off nose high. Seems to be tail heavy.

Any ideas?

OMPHobby T720 too stable (13 min 10 sec)


I made it too stable .

A] = Stability Mode ( Auto Flight Levelling ) ..
Stability is never turned off ( At least not with my Taranis ) , what does get turned off is the auto levelling function in the gyro which keeps your T720 straight and level . When you turn this function off , stability still works . But you are quite able to jam the T720 into the ground as the stability only maintains what ever orientation you were in when you let go the sticks .

B] I used one of my 3 position switches to give me Stability ( Full ) as well as 75% and 50% rates with auto levelling off . I also re-calibrated the gyro to stop the T720 hunt the ground . ( Now it hunts the sky ever so gently )

C] Those Ailerons probably want to be @ 100% , I set the Ailerons to 90% when I came home and added 20% expo for the hell of it . ( Like the T720 isn't stable as is ? ) Anyways , for this flight it was crazy stable .. I want a little instability I think .

D] I have to say that the T720 might just be the best little first model out there . Think about the price ! The T720 sells for around the $100 USD price point , if not less . There are a lot of Mikey Mouse planes around this price point and the T720 makes most of them very redundant . If you are Noob and looking for a entry model into the hobby , you can very easily make a worse choice than the T720 .

E] Upgrading ! This is where the T720 gets interesting . Throw in...Continue Reading

Acquired this Beauty from my Older Brother... It has been around the block a few times and is starting to show it's age but there is still some flight time left in it. A .60 size Slowpoke that I am re-powering to an electric. It has a Turnigy Aerodrive SK3542-1250 and a 70 amp ESC powering while turning a 10x6 APC Electric prop. Taxi testing is looking real good. Old "Snoopy" wants to take to the air again... Soon!

The easiest way is to use 1/32” plywood cut out 1/4 inch larger than the oval shape that you want for the canopy. Soak it in water for 20 minutes then wrap it over the area where the canopy is to be cut out. Keep it in a low humidity area overnight. Unwrap the ply and cut it out with scissors. Cut out the canopy with a thin Dremel wheel or with a thinner diamond wheel from Harbor Freight. The plywood sill now gets epoxied to the canopy opening. Clamp with hobby clamps ( clothspins can work)

Instead of plywood fiberglass use 60 min-24 hour epoxy and fiberglass cloth. This is stronger and insures a better shape. Purchase a roll of clear Monocote or use scrap backing from a colored roll of Monocote. This material does not stick to CA or epoxy and its free usually. Cover the area of the canopy with this material and tape it in place. Lay the cloth 1 -3 once/sq yard over the clear plastic. Carefully brush the epoxy on to the cloth and roll toilet paper over the cloth to remove as much of the epoxy as possible. Don’t scrape the epoxy away as it will disturb the weave of the cloth. You can add another layer of cloth and repeat the process. When epoxy fully cures and is hard you will not have to sand the epoxy. Cut out the sill to support the canopy and epoxy in place.

Got all these projects waiting...in various degrees of storage ranging from "Cold", to "Warm", to "Hot" status.

So naturally, the smart and prudent thing to do is---start ANOTHER project!

Back to the past yet again...my Scientific Model Airplane Company's "Zipper" building notes from the Cox Engine Forum:
_______________________________________

So, Bob's one little, though enthusiastic, comment about his fondness for Walt Musciano's 1/2A "Zipper" was just enough to push me over the edge into starting one. Went to bed thinking about it...drank coffee this morning thinking about it, so what the heck...

I built the original Scientific kit back in 1969 or so, powering it with the Babe Bee from my PT-19 QZ. A couple decades ago, I got a copy of the plan sheet, along with a nice note from the Man himself, Mr. Musciano. Been talking about building it since then.

Now, in the midst of a shop totally cluttered with tapes, dope cans, and spray equipment, I've started cutting templates from the 10% enlarged copies I made from the original plan sheet. I wanted this Zipper to be a bit larger, as I remembered the original to be better suited for a healthy .020, instead of the Babe Bee that took it around the circle like a combat wing.

Anyway, we'll see how this goes along. So far, the whole "Social Distancing" thing has turned the shop and front yard into a booming model airplane flying, dope spraying, resurrection of stalled projects, and engine test-running affair.

Everybody take care and stay healthy,

For my Windrider B737 model, I decided to design my own lights controller, mainly because most commercial kits that I found do not offer the features that I want.


Light outputs can be configured as one of the following:

- steady light

- strobe light (white LEDs in video, shifted in time for increased realism)

- rotating beacon (green LED in video)

Any light output can be triggered by an RC ppm input value, for instance:

- steady landing light can be triggered by the landing gear channel (ON when gear down)

- strobe lights can be triggered by engines on.



A first prototype of my RC aircraft lights controller is ready (see video), currently with 1W LEDs.

3W and 5W LED version will follow (parts ordered)

This is what I did to help keep the servo connection in place on this plane. It has worked really well thus far and now I am not worried about adding the new Platinum FMS 80mm 2100kv set up. take a look and hope it helps!

X440 flew great at 20.1 ounces. Started off with a power off hand toss to make sure the V tail ruddervators were set up properly. Second toss was at half power then at full power she accelerated vertically and after 5 seconds shut the motor down for glide trim. She picked up light lift and after thermaling for a few minutes tested higher speed and she did surprisingly well. If you are used to foamy motor gliders with thick wings you really get better performance on a thinner built up wing. I miss having flaps so approach and touchdown made it a little more difficult. I flew for about 5-8 minutes and only used 25 seconds of motor. The 10.5 blades draw 13 amps and 187 watts on the Turnigy Prop Drive (28-30 800 KV max amps is 20 , 1050 4S Lipo and 20 amp ESC....Continue Reading

I thought this Tiny Wing would make for an excellent Micro FPV Wing ;-)
It has several flight modes; 6-axis, 3-axis, and manual.
It's made from EPP Foam which makes it extremely durable.
I think this Micro Wing has better Slow Flight Capability in Manual Mode than in Gyro Mode ;-)

Let's blow the Dust Off ;-)
