Picture 6 shows the correct bulkhead attachments H-4,H-5,H-6,H-7 on sides 1 & 2. Piece 'TL' is next glued to the stern of the balsa hull, flush with the flat bottom and in 1/16" from each side. Next the 'B-1' pieces are glued flat, on each side of the hull. about 1/16" in from the sides and butted with the side of piece 'TL'. This 1/16" is to allow for the adding of the sides to the hull. Next, glue the two sides, 'H-9', to the hull and to the 'B-1' pieces ... with the bulkheads facing out and with the bulkhead slits facing upward. See pictures 7 & 8. Now we can install pieces H-1, H-2, and H-3 to form the bow. Then add B-2 to hull and into notch of H-1. Note: H-3 bottom notches fit over B-1 pieces. See picture 9.

Hi flew my Bush Mule the other day had a brilliant flight but on landing it was a bit bouncy which resulted in damaging the nose wheel servo to which I now need to replace, however on looking into it I cannot fathom how to get it out. Can anyone help me with this please?

As promised I have written out a brief description of how EDF's work. This description is only part of the whole story and I will endeavour at some later date add to it in such a way that it will benefit users. I have as yet, not worked out exactly all the consequences of a 'Real' world unit but so far I believe that the basic theory will remain both intact and applicable. Please read, I know many theories have been advanced on the pages of a good number of forums and for the reader this is just 'another' example. I do hope there will be some who read it through and digest.

ELECTRIC DUCTED FANS.
When I first looked at these little flight engines, like most, I thought they are somewhere between a propellor and an axial compressor stage, however I quickly realised they are something on their own. The nearest is a compressor blade that produces no increase in density, that is the compression should, ideally, be only a constant volume process. Having said that, like a propellor, they use the principle of forward procession - or pitch.
I will now lay down the configuration of this device, a duct that is parallel from entry to the end of the vanes, a 'concentrating nozzle'* and a fan with a 'solidity'** less than but close to one with a parallel platform continuing past the vanes. Finally this applies only to ducted fans that operate at less...Continue Reading

Hi Guys,

while I am waiting for the DC 10 from heavymetalrc I started a Depron MD-11 build in the size for EDF 55. I used a paper model which you can download for free from the internet. I checked the fitting and it is really good ! I plan to post the progress here from time to time but I have absolut no hurry and no plan when it should be ready In case you have questions feel free to ask.

Best

Rudi

This is my review of the BQE Pixel Micro Frame where I discuss the technical aspects and features the frame has to offer, and I also discuss what components are going to be used on this build to make this thing an absolute rocket.

OK I am tad lubricated. : -)

I watched a heli fly over it was just cruising an had an enclosed tail. Not sure what it was.
BUT is was pretty darn quiet. Except the thwacking sound. But still, it was pretty low key.

Decided to not G.A.F about things today and let it all hang out.
So I pulled up my super cool made in NZ ultra deck chair and sat in the sun with my shirt of like mr Putin and sank a bleer. or three.
It was great. But... soon it will will be too hot to do this without flash goggles and a leather jacket. Sigh.
Rad count will go through the roof.

No idea if anyone reads this but a BIG hello to you. And PEACE be to you. God I sound like a hippy...

Seriously chaps.
RC modelling is great.
But remember to pass on those great models, gathering dust, to the next gen.
Don't let them rot!

( Seen a few "after they passed" sales on the local auction website, heck some were EXTENSIVE...)

Which reminds me....

Bo cool, respectful, no bigoted BS and lend a hand when you can. It's the best way. : - )

Salute!

Robert. ( Ok I had at least four, no five, beers and am looking at the fridge.. )

PS. Esky Big Lama is my first Heli and I am pretty darn happy with it. !

Hello,



This is just the simple how to connect your Walkera g2d to cg035 aosenma and make FPV from xiaomi yi. I will try to post links where you can order parts from. First of all this is just summary of my knowledge from this forum so it can be used by others without reading quantum of posts. Thanks to RCCB_kuri and David (cj7hawk) who helped me and navigate me to make this DIY real. Without them i dont know nothing .



This will work only on newer boards so if you have older cg035 you do not have same outputs and signal available on the board/receiver.



List of required parts:

Nobody told me to buy all these little parts so I had to solder a lot wires together and it is not very nice now.

- You will need one male connector to power g2d from cg035 without external power need.

My FPV summer 2017 - vicmanfpv (4 min 12 sec)


We come back again! After a crazy summer start with a multitude of technical problems and material that has not worked correctly, but that gradually became a summer of fpv more for the memory with my flypepino team mates (el verde fpv, gallo ninja fpv, serseix fpv) looking for new flight spots, sharing flights with friends from distant lands (diablo fpv) and finally enjoying a good fpv summer. Here, a short video summary of some flights. The new season is here!!!!!

Apparently all the parts are discounted, and can't find any, I was wondering if any one knows a good replacement

Ever get tired of all of the dents in your foamy either from normal use, hangar rash, your friend dropping your wing panel onto the ground and filling its smooth surface with a golf ball finish on your brand new airplane? Well tire no more!

This is a simple trick that was taught to me years ago and it seems to work really well on a variety of foams including insulation foams (Depron, Bluecore/FFF), EPO, Elapor, Z-Foam, I've even had some success using it with regular EPS. The process is simple:

1. Gather your materials.

You will need a,

-Covering iron
-Water
-Paper towel
-Your dented foam



2. Set your covering iron to full throttle- no don't set it conservative, put that thing on full blast! Let it heat fully



3. Soak your paper towel completely until it is dripping wet.

4wd Feiyue FY07 Desert Eagle 1/12 Scale RC Rock Racer - Unboxing, Speed Test & Bashing (21 min 4 sec)


Ok! So Gearbest just sent me the new FY07 Desert Eagle to review for you guys.Get some popcorn, because we do it all for you in this video: Unboxing, Speed Test, Bashing, and First Impression. I could go either way about the last Feiyue they sent - the FY-10 - mainly because the transmitter range was so bad on the one I received. This experience was the exact opposite.

From the "get-go" I really enjoyed driving this RC. It's definitely still not the quality of my name brand 1/10 scale vehicles, but it's definitely a much better build than RCs you'll pick up at a big box store. I like that it has metal diffs and a brushless motor. The tires felt good to me, but I'd like to upgrade the shocks and driveshafts. I was a little bummed when I lost the screw for the driveshaft, but that turned out to be an easy enough fix using a screw I had already sitting loose on the workbench. It doesn't really affect my review because that happens all the time with RTR RCs.

Overall, the top speed didn't bother me. It felt good for this size car. I'll probably see if it can handle 3S and what that looks like. So far, I'm pleased with this RC and really like the looks of it.

I have stopped building the G2 to focus on the Hawaiian Hawk and XL 2 which is a 130" open class TD ship.

All my new models are going back to wood veneer over foam core wings like back in the 90's. Focus on fun and good value for the kits and with some actual building involved.

I would like to share with all of you that the reason the dynamite motor comes apart is pre-ignition or detonation from cheap fuel. If you use 100 octane vp fuel with the oil they supply your break-in will go smooth. I'm going to try Amsoil saber this weekend at 50 to 1 and post the results. I have 24 tanks through my car and it really hasn't stopped gaining power. It was really slow with no power out of the box. But after 16 tanks and tuning ,she stands straight up from dead stop . And is a handful to control. Well worth the money.
