HobbyKing Firstar BNF (5 min 31 sec)


Oh dear ! , the Sun Glare was really bad and it really F'ed with my depth perception !
The tree I hit was literally invisible to me because of the glare ( I don't deal well with glare )

( I swear officer ! The tree came out of no where and hit my plane )

A) The Firstar has plenty of power to ROG ( Rise off ground )
B) My CG is a little rearward
C) First part of the video I am trying to trim for power . It took all the down trim the pot had to offer .
D) The Firstar flies really well , shame about the low sun . Made things harder than they needed to be .
E) Yes , the Firstar could be a very nice first model ( Currently on Sale @ HobbyKing )
F) My CG is just behind the spar , Ail 100% + 20% Expo / Elevator 100% + 60% Expo
G) Battery is a Nanotech 460 2s ( Fits in the fuse real nice )
H) Yes , I hit a tree . The damage was a small dint on the wings LE and a few minor scratches on the wing surface .
I) The sun made things a PITA , but I still had fun .. And thats what it's about .

CaDa Buggy C51043W review (5 min 13 sec)

Posted by DismayingObservation | Jun 24, 2019 @ 06:03 PM | 5,397 Views
After a whole lot of assembly, detailing and waiting for the new ESCs, the new/old FlyFly Duke B60 lives!

Like the original, it took nearly a half a pound of lead up in the nose to balance it out. The factory recommendation would have made for a horribly nose heavy model. Not surprising; that was one of the worst manuals I've ever encountered and I mentioned that in the review of the original model. For the record, it balances just fine a few millimeters in front of the wing spar.

To recap, the one you see in the photos was the original review kit less the electronics and the prototypical pull-pull retractable nose wheel. An ESC failure wadded in that original, so out came this version after languishing for five years.

What the photo also shows is the very first decal set for this model by the one and only Callie Graphics. I sent the original sheet to Callie Soden and she was able to create a color-corrected custom set which included separate drop shadows for the tail number and a far more accurate Colombian flag on the vertical stab.

The new ESCs are fresh new E-Flite 50-amp units with the BEC disabled on one of them. On the original, both BECs were active on a single channel which may have led to the failure of one of them at the PC board. Propellers are from Master Airscrew and the remainder of the electronics are off of the original model. I'd stolen the main retracts some time ago for another model, but there wasn't anything wrong with the ones on the...Continue Reading

Still cruising the 300X. I really enjoy relaxed flying and this one scratches the itch. Truth is, I've gotten back into an old sport, one that I first participated in at the tender age of 10. My wife and I both enjoyed it when we first started dating, but it got quite expensive so we gradually dropped it. No serious competition in the future, just relaxed involvement. We've found ways to keep costs down and are members at a club which also helps diffuse costs. Not giving up on helis, just not so crazy anymore. Did an inventory of parts on hand for what I have so it looks like spares are in good shape. Here's the rub. The helis I have are now all obsolete. Granted, the 300X is long in the tooth, but it flys just fine. Parts are getting hard to find which means prices are reflective, i.e. going up. Same for the 450X and 200SRX. While those parts that are used in a current model are available, many are not. I'll continue to enjoy what I have, for as long as I can. When parts become an issue, that'll be the end of it. I don't see myself buying a new heli, but ya never know.

First, maiden flight video:

Precision Aerobatics Addiction - Maiden Flight (6 min 53 sec)


From August 2015 until September 2018, the E-Flite Ultimate2 was my #1 plane. By last summer, I was so confident flying it that I put a wood prop and aluminum spinner on it. That changed after NEAT Fair 2018. After a disappointing HK auction followed by a few beers in the Beacon tent, I walked by the Flex Innovation stand with exactly enough money in my pocket to buy a Mamba 10 from two really nice guys. Since then, my top lineup has changed significantly. The Pa Extra 260 is definitely #1. The next 4 are really close to each other. I'd have to go:

1. Precision Aerobatics Extra 260
2. Mamba 10
3. Precision Aerobatics Addiction (original)
4. E-Flite Ultimate2
5 Extreme Flight 48" Edge 540T EXP

Some of you may be thinking that Extreme Flight Edge should be higher on the list. I want it to be. It flies fine and I have it dialed in now, but it is taking me a while to get used to. I think it is because it is extremely light and it responds so incredibly fast. I love the insanity but sometimes I think it is going to tear itself apart. Definitely a high pucker factor plane when doing insane maneuvers with my most expensive plane. I'm sure after 50 or so flights I'll calm down. The FI Cap 232 would be on there if the servos didn't fail. There was no crash and FI replaced the two servos, but I am still nervous about it. I should turn the gains down.

Hi,

Does anyone know where I can get "preferbly" free, RC Jet plans (depron foam) that has curved wings and body, not the flat wing jet from parkjets.com.

I've used the free plans from this group before and from Park Jets, works well but I'm trying to advance to the next stage.

Thank you in advance.

Growler X1 1/6 2WD electric desert buggy(8s) (0 min 34 sec)



Features:

1. A Pivoted and movable front shock mount. By minimizing interference with suspensing arms, and maximizing Shock travel , this design greatly improve the handling capability on rough terrace, at the same time improve tractions by always applying pressure on both wheels.

2. With a “C” shape shock stay base design, combine with the roll-cage and chassis kick-up angle, it forms a close loop which greatly improve structural crash absorbing capability, the elastic structure can reduce the chance of deforming upon front-end crashes.

3. The front towing loop together with the front bumper provide an effective initial collapsing area, greatly reduce the chances of damaging the front part of the chassis upon crashes.

4. Steering posts are designed to seperate with the front end kick-up plate, minimizing the damage of the steering components upon front-end crashes.

5. Lay-down steering servo design offer better torque efficiency, minimize power and range lost.

6. Motor heat-sink made from cold-extrusion materials, provides greater flexibility on machining, hence a 100% increase in size compare with older generation’s heat sink.

7. Re-position of the motor cooling fan . This new locations maximize air-flow hence improve cooling efficiency in general , at the same time reduce the risk of debris damaging the fan blade.

8. Quick-release thread-less hex wheel adapter. Eliminating...Continue Reading

We restored and flew one of Hobie Alters personal Hawks, it was a pre-production prototype that he painted in his favorite color: Keoke Coffee. Bob Martin (center) and Tony Johnson (right ) made it the best Katie tribute to date.

I always wanted an F-18....... so......

With Freewing bringing out an all-new F-18, after discontinuing their earlier version of one, I hummed and harred and then just decided to get one.
But I chose the ARF version so I can use a Jetfan/HET 8S setup in it. The full scale is after-all a FAST and powerful jet and a 6S setup is unlikely to match that.... the full scale being OVER 1:! Thrust to Weight ratio (not armed/loaded of course).
And the F-18 superceded the F-14 Tomcat..... so that is another 'vague' reason to have one.

I think it comes stock as a Stabilator setup - not Tailerons. But I will change it to have full span flaps... no Ailerons... and Tailerons.
I expect the Taileron Pivots will be the typical sloppy, poor tolerance. Freewing design so I will replace those if required - and I am sure they will need that.

I was happy enough with the Blue Angels scheme, rather than the all grey version. It helps it be something more "different" than other camo scheme aircraft.Plus it is a well known 'look'.
I also had (have) the Starmax 70mm F-18 Hornet 64mm jet, from about ten years back(!!)..... and, I still have it stashed in a corner somewhere and it has a 70mm EDF in it now, but it was still somewhat anemic in power, and nothing like the level of scale detail etc that a larger 90mm size can have. More of an "RC Toy"....

The F-18 is probably one of the cheapest of Freewing's 90mm jets - bar the DH-112 Sea Venom - seeing it has somewhat minimal "stuff" in it. Mechanical gear doors, no weapons set (no need on a Blue Angel), and not a complete lighting set.
It is on its way and should arrive in a few more days.....
