Yep Les Amis,

J'ai bien galéré mais ... OUF, ça vole, et plutôt bien !!! Je vous présente aujourd'hui le test du STAR POWER 130. Comme je vous l'explique dans la vidéo, cet engin à été pour moi un petit défi. En effet, quand j'ai ouvert l'emballage, que ne fut pas ma surprise de découvrir mouuulte pièces, bien rangées dans des tas de petits sachets différents ! J'ai cherché une notice ou un plan pour le montage ou les connexions, en vain ! Donc après quelques recherches sur Youtube et autres, j'ai enfin pu assembler et mettre en marche ce petit 130 (j'ai mis les liens qui m'ont aidés au dessus). Bref, le résultat est là, libre à vous de tenter l'aventure DIY, perso, c'est vrai que j'ai bien galéré, mais qu'elle satisfaction au premier décollage !!!

Well guys...I'm happy to report that a crazy idea started by myself and my dear friend Tony Nacarrato to gather at least 100 1/2A powered control line planes was...as the kids would say....EPIC!!! It was the most amazing day I've personally experienced in over 40 years dabbling in control line model aviation.

We had 127 1/2A control line models gathered and a perfect flying day. I would like to thank the Valley Circle Burners and the Knights of the Round Circle for coming out to celebrate 1/2A model aviation. Each of you made this happen and I'm forever grateful.

Looking for to the 2nd Annual Gathering.

Had the misfortune of a dead stick right after take off and tried to turn left. I believe I was 4-5' off the ground and used too much aileron and not enough rudder and it pointed itself toward the ground and bit the dust....

I own a LOT of chargers. 13...
From the starting days of the 50W/5A "4 button" chargers, to the next levels of 150W/10A... 200W/7A... (still "4 button" type)... and then onto the LEMON Radiolink CP620 750W/30A (and has 6A balancing!!!) capable!!

50W chargers can't charge many battery capacities very fast at all....

Some Charger Info:
The Watts rating sets the MAXIMUM POWER the charger can pass. But it also has a Voltage maximum and a Current (Amps) maximum.
So they will most often list Voltage as "2S to 6S" etc (2S to 8S). So then you know how many cells it can charge at most.
And they will list the maximum Current it can pass. eg say 5 Amps.
"Up to 6S at 50W/5A"

Then for any given cell count, thus Voltage, you can derive what it could charge that battery at the most.
So let's use 6S to make it tough for the charger (because it is the highest Voltage it can do).... 6S peak voltage is 6 x 4.2v = 25.2v
To see what maximum Current is POSSIBLE at that Voltage, divide the POWER by the Voltage. 50W / 25.2v = 1.98 Amps
This is because no matter what, the POWER is the top limit of the charger.

There are the THREE limits - Voltage, Current and Power... and NONE can be exceeded. (eg not even just one). The charger itself will stop at its limits.
So the MOST you could feed into a 6S battery with a 50W charger is 1.98Amps....
If it was a 2200mAH battery then that 1.98A max is almost 1C (0.9C). If it was a 5000mAH battery then it is 0.4 C...Continue Reading

KK90B = King Kong 90mm Brushed ( 2s )

Lets start with my DSMx Sat Rx .. I could not get it to work .. Because I had not ticked Serial Rx in UART2 ( It was that simple ) ...

My second issue was arming the quad , and for this to occur the throttle end point needs to be lower than the minimum throttle value ..

The ol' gal was getting pretty ratty and needed to be freshened up a bit. Black cover on the entire nose was removed, oil and glop cleaned off then new covering installed. Engine well coated with thinned epoxy mix, new Dave Brown engine was mount installed, new windscreen and side windows made up and glued on along with some minor patches on the fuselage. I made up a new ignition system which I downsized as much as possible, made and installed new switch for same with servo and micro switch and topped it off with a 1S 1800 mah battery. She's a very over looked plane form SAM competition and flies great in lift. She also had a new 6 channel Hitec Optima receiver put in to keep her happy and on track.

When I was a young child I lived on a cherry orchard in a rural area. The house was located on a sloping site and had a high front veranda. The young me spent many a happy hour seeing how far I could get my sheet balsa gliders to fly across the long slope, over the dirt road and into the orchard after being hand launched from the veranda.
I didn't know it at the time, but I was laying down a good foundation of knowledge about trimming a model plane. And Cg location and the correct proportions of the flying surfaces, building straight. All Good Stuff like that.
I now live about one and a half thousand kilometers form that little house but I recently visited it by using Google Earth,. It enabled me to measure my best flights to be approximately 70 meters.
But no young boy will be able to do as I did. The house is still there but the grassy slope and the orchard have been converted to gardens and houses and the dirt road in paved.
WW2 was raging at the time I lived there, so in the bush block next door I went on patrol with an imaginary Owen gun seeking out imaginary Japanese infantry.
That treed hill is also now covered with housing. I suppose young boys living there now fight their imaginary wars on their computers. I think I was lucky to have had it the way I did.

R C scale model Golden Egg Harbor (0 min 28 sec)

This is a model of the brochure boat for Egg Harbor in 1972. I drew up plans from many photos and measurements of the full size boat in the marina. It has a redmax weed eater motor which I converted to water cooling (very hard to do because the spark plug is angled) and the output goes through a gearbox and on to two prop shafts(also homemade). The pilot station has a working compass (fabricated from a cut light bulb) The only items purchased were the props and the radio gear

I decided to try a blog.
I'll start with a little about myself.
I started flying control line planes 50 years ago when I was 11. I got out of the hobby for 45 years and re discovered the fun of RC flying. I started flying a lot about 6 years ago, mostly electric. I made a ton of mistakes and taught myself how to fly before joining the CSRA flyers club. I wish I would have found the club first as it would have saved me a lot of money and heart ache in crashed planes. I have continued to grow in the sport and now fly 33 % gas planes and have built a dozen or so ARF's,. Yes I know that an arf is not as cool as a kit but they suit my needs. I am currently trying to sell off my nitro stuff and moving towards gas planes. I still have my electrics and fly them often too. mostly when I don't have a lot of time to spend at the field. I am also vice president of a very fast growing club, when I joined there was 12 members, now we have 55. We have made a lot of improvements to the club in the last 4 years and even added a geo tech runway, covered pit area with picnic tables and now our most recent new addition a 10x20 storage container has been installed, we use it primarily for our field equipment since someone decided to take our lawnmower and anything that was not tied down for them selves. I hate a thief.

Gentlemen :

My mates Franky and Peter paid me a visit last weekend and I presented each of them with their snowsled skiers and the other gear like the radios and battery chargers . This allowed me to find new homes for some of the older radio gear that I had inherited over the years . The mates were blown away and are looking forward to racing these sleds this winter . As I want to WIN , I decided to make some mods to my frame to use a pair of ducted fans as the motivators . A test platform for an upcoming quadcopter project .

After installation , I decided to test the thrust of the DFs on the shop floor as there is not any snow on the ground outside the shop . Firing up the DFs presented a 'Holy S*#& !' kind of reaction as the sled shot itself across the room . It actually launched itself from the short cardboard box it was resting on at the time . The DF units are rated at 485 grams of thrust apiece . The AUW of the sled is 760 grams . But WOW ; what an acceleration ! Even on 3S power . 5700KV motors , I guess .

The mods that I designed were to mount the DF units and the rear stabilizer winglets . As these mods are not a part of the original downloaded 3D print model , OpenScad came in handy . The DF strut mounts are of a ROTORBITS compatible one that will be used on an upcoming quadcopter project .

The pix shown are of hte final sled , ready for racing when the snow arrives . Franky and Pete are going to have some competition !

Thanx for the blog support ! As always , comments are welcomed . My Aussie mates need not fret the fact of having now snow as this model will soon be further modified to accept wheels and floats . Regards to all of the builders : RickC_RCAV8R

About three weeks ago I had the chance to get one of these fairly old and therefore rare models. It was offered on Ebay and the seller had tried to sell the model already three times before- with no success. The price dropped each time and when it reached $150, I pulled the trigger on it, being the only bidder Still a little bit on the expensive side for such an old model which is not even made of EPO but of EPS. Yet, I had to have it as the He-162 is an aircraft I always liked very much.
Long ago (around 1998/99), I had a fiberglass version of the He, made by FVK. Although being a very nice model, I sold it years back because the power came from a brushed motor, fed by NiCad's. It was just too heavy and under-powered to have fun.
Having read some of the posts in the associated thread here on RCG, I knew I had to reinforce the Heinkel on some of her well known weak spots. Such are the tail section or the wings that have no spar. I went a little further and not only strengthened the tail with at least three flats of carbon fiber, but also the lower part of the rudders, the fins of the elevator(s) and of course the wings. The wings itself were reinforced by two carbon flats per wing and a long aluminum (tube) spar that reaches from the servo pocket of one wing, through the fuselage and into the other wing. My first attempt was to use a carbon fiber tube, but this would have meant to fly without any dihedral, which I found to be a little risky. I bent the aluminum tube...Continue Reading
