I got this one from a friend that wasn't too eager to build it, at a good price

Some time ago it was sold by HobbyKing :

https://hobbyking.com/en_us/harrier-...___store=en_us

https://www.amazon.com/HobbyKing-Har...ct_top?ie=UTF8

Originally their idea was a 4S 70mm edf setup with a 40A esc and a 2200mAh 4S battery ...

It seems the original was made by Guan Li ... https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...rrier-70mm-EDF

A little late but finished this build over July 4th weekend and decided to go with the theme. It's a simple build and finally got to maiden it properly this weekend. It's fast but lacking a bit of low end. Took it through a few 1300mah 4s pack and no issue at all and super happy.

Part's list:
BeeRoter 195mm frame
RacerStar 4in1 25a ESC
Kombini F3
Cobra 2204 2820kv
Gemfan 5030
FrSky XSR
RGB LED (2 for each arm, inner LED is for strobing feature, outer ones are use as indcator and arm state)


This is my first quad flying with the X-lite and it feel very different from the Taranis. Will post about the X-lite on another blog.

I store my lipo batteries in my BBQ. I figure if it can hold hot coals, it could contain a lipo fire.

Anyway, it has been a mess and unorganized for too long. And many I knew were no good anymore. Some dated back to 2009. So I went through them today, picked out several that I did not want to keep and took them to the recycling center.

It looks a lot better now. Hopefully I can keep on top of it, lol...

Developed a cockpit for my Long EZ ARF 46 by Nitroplanes. I plan to convert the plane to electric so left room beneath the floor for lipo and electronics.

The ARF came with a flimsy plastic sheet with bumps depicting controls and seat. My mod included 1/32” balsa sheets. Everything is in two pieces. There is a cross ply former that I didn’t want to destroy. This shoved the front seat much further frontward. The seat backs are hollow and slide down over the crossbeams. The floor is 1 1/8” below the sides.

The canopy on the Long EZ is very large. The plans call for mounting it in the corners with four screws. Because I need to change out lipos, the canopy needs to be removed and replaced with ease. I used six pairs of 5/16” diameter rare earth magnets. I made balsa supports that sit on the sides. I sunk a magnet into each one. Then I matched up the canopy and marked where the canopy magnets went. They sunk into the magnet holders on the fuse. This took some fiddling. I used 5 min epoxy on the canopy magnets.

To test the strength I blasted the fuse and canopy with a leaf blower. My anemometer only measures up to 27 mph, but I had a variable speed control on the leaf blower and at least doubled the wind. The canopy held fast....Continue Reading

Finding the lift

Let’s first talk about how to find the lift. First and foremost you look for obvious signs (planes, birds, spider webs, dust devils) as these can all be signs of rising air. Keep your home field advantage knowledge in mind as you consider most likely places and plan a search pattern. I find this especially key in selecting what part of the field I want to be over for my last ditch effort as I am getting low. Plan ahead for that, your emergency exit. For me that place is usually slightly down wind of me so I can read wind shifts. If available, it will also be an area that takes advantage of the terrain or a tree line which may kick off thermals like a slope. If a thermal trip is not available, be over or down wind of a surface or area more likely to generate thermals. Before you launch always have a plan-A search area in mind and then a backup plan-B if that does not work. If neither work you need be at that last ditch effort place before you hit the ground.

Knowing where the sink is by watching the various signs is almost as valuable as knowing where it is because you will obviously be avoiding those areas as you search. Your timer should be telling you about any clues he detects as well as the obvious things such as where people are going up and where people are sinking. It may be wise to adjust your search plan in flight based on what he is telling you. Most importantly, never cover the same ground twice and keep your plane moving at a...Continue Reading

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.
