My Lord, it has been almost 10 long years and my Slow Stick-X using GWS Slow Stick Parts has survived!

I recently flew it about a week ago (during the weekend) at my RC Club using a HIMAX Inrunner Brushless with the HIMAX gearbox. The issue was I could not keep the propeller on the output gearbox shaft. Perhaps I needed one more additional washer and use sand paper on that Spur Gear Output shaft, nonetheless, I went back to basics as I wanted a power system that gave it respectable airspeed but, with LONG Flight Times.

Therefore, I came to a complete circle of sorts and found my original ASTRO FLIGHT mightly mirco 010 14-turn inrunner brushless and found a GWS EPS-300/350 gearbox and installed the GWS "B" Spur gear which makes 4.43:1 reduction.

Placed a GWS Slow Flyer (Orange Propeller) EP9070 which is a 9 X 7 propeller.

Performed numerous repairs on the wing and from a previous crash that occurred over 10 years ago and recorded right here somewhere under the Handle "Guapoman2000."

Okay, today it flew super early morning over at my RC Club and what a delight! It satisfied all requirements to the T. Very good airspeed and just an awesome almost 9 minutes and the Thunder Power 3-Cell, 1350mAH, 25C still had 11.98 Volts after the flight from a fully charged 12.5Volts state.

I believe that I could have flown for an additional 5 minutes with mix throttle and would have reached around 11.6 Volts from the Battery pack. Next time I will gradually increase flight times, land and measure then, repeat after fully charge and fly a little longer etc... etc...

2) give an extra carbon fiber sheet for magnet to avoid the separation other than using dedicated glue

3) made of hard andized aluminum casing and uses 240 °C R-leveled insulated winding,it explosion-proof rotor structure has 200°C high temperature resistance

4) high precision and strength bearings.

5) One-piece structure which has dust proof feature can prolong the service life of motor

6) The slot for conducting heat on Motor casing and the silicone pad which is between the end cover and stator can dissipate the innner heat effectively reduce the possibility of damage.

I have been flying water planes for a number of years now .
My most recent model the large Sea Master 120 scratch build is just a great model to fly and handles the water so well.
After completing the North Star , I now have a favorite water plane.
It tracked perfectly in the water trials and first flew with a 4000 mAh 3S lipo with slow flying speed.
Second flight was very impressive with a 5000 mAh 6S lipo. What a joy to fly....and land on water.
I modified / raised the motor pylon 3 inch higher to accommodate a 12 inch prop and glad I did.
Apart from a couple clicks of down trim it flew perfectly straight ...power on or off.
Motor is a Eflite power 32 running a 11 x 7 3 blade prop...60 amp esc and 5000 mAh 6S lipo .
All up weight is 90 oz...quite light really.....it glides / floats around without power on surprisingly well.

6x4E Prop = 4.27 grams ( For OMPHobby S720 ? )
Factory prop comes in at 2.41 grams .. That really is a significant difference . Especially for gyroscopic effect .

X-BOSS Receiver ( AC900 )
Apparently does both S-FHSS and D16 FrSky .



I saw this Rx some time ago , but at the time had no need of S.bus , now I find myself in need of such .

So hopefully will be playing with this one soon .

Well, the 2nd Landing Gear MOD worked out extremely well ;-)
I put 6 LIPOs through the Plane and wanted to put 4 more through it but the Bugs ran me out!
I pretty much took a bath in Deet every other flight as less frequently than that the Bugs were feasting on me again.
This Plane is Awesome! Now I just need some Calmer Wind so I can practice Hovering, and fewer Bugs ;-)

All are fully operational. All switches and knobs work perfectly.

Transmitter with the black and yellow neon neck strap still has plastic on the screen. The imperfections are on the plastic screen cover, not the screen.

The transmitter with the Dragonlink on the back has had the antenna modification performed by Helibatics when I purchased it new.

Halloa people

it will come as no surprice that this quick-review of a FC is part of a build-project I am doing It is an ultra-light 5" and I had originally planned to use a BetaFPV 20A board..
Then this Diatone / Mamba board popped up and it seems more interesting to me Not least of all because of the F1 option

Link to the board: Diatone - Mamba F411AIO 25A BetaFlight or FlightOne whoop-style-board


So let's have a look at that board then

Yep Les Amis,
Je n'en reviens toujours pas ! Comme promis, voici le test du MINI MUSTANG P-51D de chez Eachine. Le plus long c'est peut être d'ouvrir la boite ! lol . Prêt en 5mn, sans compter la charge des batteries bien sur, ce petit avion de guerre est déjà tout assemblé dans la boite et prêt à voler ! Après quelques vérifications d'alignement, perso je n'ai rien eu à faire, vous êtes prêts à voler. Facile à piloter avec ses 3 modes de vol, il comblera les débutants mais aussi les experts qui pourront également réaliser des figures de l’extrême ! Si vous n'avez jamais pilotés d'avion, ce petit engin est idéal pour s'initier sans risques et pour un faible investissement. Aussi à l'aise en salle que dehors, vous pouvez l'emmener partout et épater la galerie grâce à son mode de figures automatiques . En bref, j'ai adoré et je suis encore sur le C.. d'avoir pu voler avec un vent de 40km/h !!! Bon Film et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

So I finally pulled the trigger on the GoPro Hero 8. I'm blown away and how clear the image is compared to my old GoPro Session 5.
Here's a clip of me flying my 6s HyperLow RS+ after work. My only regret is i didn't charge more lipos and had more daylight.
