This is my Second Flight with the E-flite UMX Citation Longitude Twin 30mm EDF BNF Basic.

E-flite UMX Citation Longitude Twin 30mm EDF BNF Basic Second Flight (5 min 0 sec)

Here are my Review Notes for this E-flite UM EDF Citation Jet:

Pros:
- Lots of lights all over it
- 3S Brushless Twin 30mm EDF's
- Chromed out plastic on the EDF inlets
- Plastic bits on the wingtips
- I will use it as a nice warm-up jet, perfect to slide into my car on the days I fly big jets like the E-flite Su-30 EDF Jet.

Cons:
- Dented foam on the main wing
- One of the mains was bent out of the box, but easily fixable
- Some glue leaked onto the silver part of the chromed out plastic on the EDF inlets

I finally got around to finishing up this video that I started about 6 months ago. Long story but I don't like FRSky's options for monitoring your onboard voltage using a balance port sensor. I prefer an 'inline' connection that is permanently wired to your ESC. There's nothing to forget or plug in wrong when you go to fly your airplane/sailplane. A few years ago someone made an after market sensor but it was discontinued.

This project will explain how to make that discontinued sensor using an Arduino micro-processor board. You can make these sensors for about $10 each after the upfront cost of buying a programmer and some wires which will run you a one time cost of about $20.

I had to make this video to help simplify the entire process of programming and soldering up that board. When I was reading some threads on RCG I found out there was no good howto. Many of us (including myself) have never used / programmed an Arduino board and probably most have no interest in it.

This video will explain downloading the software, programming the card and how to configure OpenTX to use a voltage sensor.

A big thank you to Mike Blanford for writing that code and making it available for us to use.

All the parts you need are in Youtube description area.

Working on a stand for my Star Wars K-2SO - speeder.

Wrapped the bottom of the speeder in cling film/Saran Wrap to prevent the putty from sticking. Then pressed exhaust repair putty against the bottom to get an impression of the bottom plate of the speeder, preventing it from sliding of when on display.

Next step: modeling a desert scene on the base. Some sand, perhaps a few rusty cogs, pipes, scrap metal etc.

OMPHobby Trashmitter (1 min 41 sec)


A) Just a video to show the dead band .
B) This is the Tx from the T720 > Has less dead band than the Tx bundled with the S720
C) Not sure how the Rx is dealing with so much dead band > Might explain all that hunting up and down !
D) S720 really wants to be BNF
E) Yes you can fly the S720 on the trashmitter , but it's nothing special . For me just a very disappointing experience .
F) The trashmitter works with the T720 , probably because the T720 is a more stable / forgiving platform . ( With full stability )

I would love to fly one of those S720 that some folks have crowed the virtues over ! With a hobby grade Tx I will believe it , but on the bundled trashmitter ? I would like to fly that !!!!

Roc hobby vtail to replace my phoenix
Posted by rclad | Yesterday @ 03:50 PM | 2,295 Views
I've been wanting to try Pattern for a long time, so I finally bought a used 2m Black Magic to get started. It was originally set up with a glow engine and tuned pipe. The original owner took that out and sold the plane with a Plettenberg Xtra 30-10 Evo brushless motor.

While I put that together I've been practicing the Advanced pattern sequence. I finally have the sequence memorized and flew it correctly without a caller yesterday. My 104" Extra has a similar thrust to weight ratio and wing cube loading as the Black Magic, so it's a decent substitute, for now. At least to get the sequence down.

Got the engine mounted and the cowling cut. Happy with spacing. Ignition and throttle servo next.

I acquired this Fleetwind-60 some time last year (2019). This 1946-made engine came to me with missing gaskets and broken insulating bush in the timer assy. Also, the needle was missing. During these (relatively) leisure times I decided to restore this engine and see how it runs.

Here is the video:
