I've been testing props on the Hawk 5 vids from each prop coming soon.

First up: HQ 5.1x4.6x3, absolutely love these props on the Hawk 5. No tuning needed they felt great, even better than stock and so far the best prop I've tried on this rig. With other props I always kept going back to the stock Avan Flows but now I'm sticking with this one.

This was surprisingly good and flew very nice! I was shocked by it and didn't even think it would fly. It had an HD camera that links to a phone with wifi for fpv flying. For $70 it's really good and includes everything.

I am looking to buy a electric 1/5th scale fg sportline. Comes with a 2s battery and I want to use a 4s battery. Will I have to change esc or just up grade battery?

I have a couple of one piece (#91455) SC5M steering links that I thought about using, but they use the 5.5mm heavy duty ball studs. I got the one piece links way back when the B5 came out, and just never used them, because I didn't realize they go on 5.5mm ball studs.

The reason for me thinking about using the one piece steering link is that I've tore the standard ballcups from the threaded rod after only running two battery packs through new stock linkage. The ballcup separating from the steering link rod threads maybe saved some damage happening elsewhere? The bad landing didn't seem all that bad though.

Has anyone ever tapped their FT aluminum bellcrank to accept 3mm threaded ball studs?

Would the 4-40 threaded hole still have enough material on the aluminum bellcrank to tap a 3mm thread? This is what I really want to know. I guess it pretty much doesn't matter if the new cut threads don't hold. I could always get one of the longer studs and put a nut on it.

Probably the final upgrade, to my B4 buggy, will be the V2 shock bodies, and they're even the 10mm (non-big bore) ones. The rear shock bodies have been laying around for about a year now in my storage area. Last year, the front end got the V2 treatment out of necessity. Apparently, my new old school Factory Team shocks, that I upgraded to, had internal dimensions off by a bit for fitment of internal clip to sit correctly. I didn't think to shave the o-ring spacer, so I threw out the Factory Team shocks. The new V2 shock bodies have caps at both ends for ease of rebuilding when the time comes.

If anyone has a need for two rear 1.18" V1 Factory Team shock bodies, let me know.

Yep Les Amis,
C'est CLAIR, NETTE, PRECIS et CONFORTABLE (Partie 2 ) !!! Voilà qui résume parfaitement la sensation que l'on a lorsque l'on essaye ce nouveau masque FPV, le FXT VIPER . Novateur et très bien pensé, ce masque permet tout d'abord de pouvoir garder ses lunettes de vue pour piloter en immersion, c'est déjà ENNORME ! En plus de ça il propose pas mal d'autres avantages, que ce soit dans l'ergonomie ou les options de menu de son écran, le FXT Viper devance largement ses concurents et en ce qui me concerne me fera peut être ranger mes Fat Shark Attitude V4... En tout cas le VRD2 PRO ou le Goggle Two sont largement dépassés et obsolètes comparés à lui . Les images sont NETTES et PURES, et pour l'avoir testé avec plusieurs caméras (4/3 et 16/9 ) de différentes qualités, je peux vous assurer qu'aucun de mes autres recepteur n'est aussi propre que celui là . Je porte des lunettes mais je ne suis pas le seul à penser du bien de cet appareil, ma fille, ma femme et quelques amis (dont Yacine) ont pu le tester et TOUS sont unanimes : "c'est confortable et les images sont nettes ! "
Pour résumer, voici un "MUST HAVE" dans la famille des masques FPV !

Finally had a go with Freecad's anaglyph feature. It's the 1st time the lion kingdom had anaglyph support in a modeling program. Maya couldn't do it, 15 years ago.

I got the book out again to keep me out of trouble but, as you have seen, it didn't work! Ha!

Especially with my new E-Flite AT-6 Texan model.

This 55 inch Tiger Moth was given to me by a friend who built it from a kit. I have really had some fun with it. It is a very nice flyer and easy to land.
They seem to roll easier to the left than they do to the right.

I've withdrawn from political discussion but ran across a post that I wished to comment on, thus I decided to use one of the tools provided by RC Groups and respond in my blog and then provide a link to it for any one wishing to read the comment or respond to it. I will respond here, but not there.

I do read some of the political stuff, but again do not want to engage political ranker so i might use this method (if it works) to comment on other post.

Because this is my blog, I get to set a rule and have the power to delete. My wish is that post to it will refrain from mentioning political characters, parties or ideologies. Simple enough, eh. Doing this might allow we fellow modelers to focus on the theme of the blog.... Morals, Ethics and values in our societies.

Ok... the post that I wished to respond to.


How many millions of OUR taxpayer dollars did Obama pump into the elections in Israel to prevent Netanyahu from being re-elected? I've heard amounts between 100 and 400 million dollars. Obama claimed it was done for the Security of the US and for peace.... Really???
First, the posters name is listed only to observe proper citation. I've every reason to believe that the poster is a fellow modeler simply passing on details invented by someone else and it is the details that prompt my response. Yeah I know, I broke my rule immediately... doing so by quoting political stuff... but bear with me, it is not...Continue Reading
