The Caddx Ratel FPV cam has amazing low light abilities. The 3" quad in this video has a cheap LED flashlight on top and weighs 170g including a 3s 450mAh battery.

I came across these earlier this year at the AMA Expo East. They are made by the following company, E-aeromotive.com, run by Dennis Andreas. I grabbed a couple to bring back home to fool around with. A few weeks later I took them an indoor free flight event I was co-CD'ing and they were a big hit. I gave some to kids who came through, and a few to other modelers. They really do glide very nicely indoors, an easy 30-40 feet nice and level.

They come in foam sheets very similar to depron, but a little more flexible. The sheet is a about 11 by 14 and has 5 pieces laser cut into it. The pieces pop out and go together very easily. I've used Foam Tac and tape to put them together. I'm going to experiment with making them a bit lighter, not that it really needs it. Also, I think I'll make a notch to let these be launched with a rubber band/catapult.

I ended up buying 100 of these they were so much fun. We'll save some for give aways at events, perhaps for some classroom/Cub Scout demonstrations as well. They would be a great little fundraiser too at events for clubs, they are less than $2.00 and could easily be sold for $3-5 bucks. Id' rather have this than the small balsa planes that break almost immediately.

We had some fun painting a few up with some old paint and stickers we had laying around. We'll use these as our display models at events.


Once built, the plane is about 13.5 inches long, and has a 10 inch wingspan.

Dennis can be reached here. I have an order in for some more of these which I believe he makes to order. Shipping is pretty reasonable too depending on how many you buy.

*I paid for these items, I'm not affiliated with the company in any way other than buying from them and enjoying their products.

Hello all,
first I am so happy I found you guys because I am sure I will need your experience.
I am very new at this, just starting.
I got a super cub S and I tried it once and guess what I crashed, so I fixed it and spoke to some of my friends who's suggesting me to get a simulator and learn on it.
can anyone please advise me if it would be good to get a SIM and witch one for a beginner like me. Any suggestions?

thank you in advance

Halloa people

so yes.. We FINALLY have a new action camera from Foxeer.. The Box 1 was discontinued quite a while back..
Anybody know Why???
The new one is here now though, so let's not complain

Link to the cam: Foxeer Box 2 - 4K action camera

So in this topic I'll be posting my findings on the new camera!

Let's actually start with some complaining anyway! :P

I ordered some F949 flight control boards some time ago .
Finally got around to trying one .

The board offers 4 channels , Thr - Rud - Ail - Ele
To use the 3rd servo , one simply plugs in a micro servo into the spare 3 pin slot . ( Sorry , which plug ? ) ( Measures 4.8mm x 2.5mm )
Anyways , 4ch capability .

Protocol = the old Flysky protocol used by the 9x and other transmitters .
Only fly in the ointment is the need to rebind the Tx to the flight board every time you want to use it .
This is probably because of the Factory Tx , which sends out a bind signal on start up .

Still , a very interesting board for RC projects that might need 4 channels . Especially Micro Models maybe around 500mm span .
The old V911 boards are just about gone , or simply premium priced . A F949 board just might be what the project ordered .

there are 2 choices:
1-if it doesnt break, dont touch it.
2- better try to make it so does not break!
which 1 you choose?
the truth is, both have valued points.
and we do 1 or the other all the time
lets consider 1 situation:
you have been flying certain plane without making any change or 'improvement' and it has been doing just fine...
or another: something has happened to you and you want to take measures to prevent it to happen again (or some say that this or that failed to them so you better do something to prevent it to happen to you).
so, what will you do?
i have some planes that have been flying without fault and keep them as they are.
on the other hand, i have had some failures with a plane and try to prevent that to happen again by doing whatever i can.
isnt this confusing? why 1 with 1, and another with another?
what do you do?
are we a puzzle or what?
or is this a matter of probabilities and risk factor?

I purchased a spare cowl and made a ply firewall to fit a 55 mm O.D. Aluminum Turbo Spinner. A yoke and collet matches it and holds 10x6 folding blades. A bungee ensures positive blade retraction. Extension is symmetrical avoiding start up imbalance loads. Heat damage from the sun warped the black painted plastic and it was removed and replaced with clear .012 inch thick plastic from a pastry container. Canopy glue was used to glue the clear to the white plastic and for screening over the turbine duct openings.

Dive performance with power off is increased due to reduction in prop drag. With a 4S 1500 100C pack amp draw is only 33 amps with 470 Watts of power. On a 20 second full power climb at 80 degrees (SAFE selected On) she climbed to an estimated 1000 ft and after trimming for a 200 ft left hand circle stayed at altitude for 10 minutes power off!

An ISDT BC 8-S shows battery remaining in percentage and in voltage. It can be viewed while running up the motor while straddling the fuselage from behind the prop.

DustOff #6 - HK FW190 WarBird Kit - Too much Wind & Crash!



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amGcJVSR8-M

Well, I certainly debated with myself whether or not to launch this plane.
I's pretty draggy and has a large profile for the wind to push.
The wind was 5-8mph on the ground and felt like 10-15mph approx. 30 feet in the air.
Plus, the wind was 90 degrees to my runway ;-)
This is one of those days where I should have packed up and gone home.
Needless to say I didn't pack up but I did crash.
If I didn't fly in significant wind I wouldn't be flying much at all where I live, so I'm marginal often in the wind ;-)

This Kit is discontinued but they still have the F6F Hellcat ;-)
