Hello good people!

Lord have mercy! I purchased this used ARF Airframe almost 2 years ago!

It just been hanging around my Master Bedroom as a static model, well no more!

Back in September 2018, I was lucky to pickup one of these ARF 360 3D, 51.2 Inch wing span model.

Our Michael Wargo can attest, I am NOT a 3D flyer and more like a pattern, sport RC Airplane Flyer (relax) and do not get into any serious discussion of specific maneuvers etc...etc.....

For me, it was the right size and weight category to use light, yet powerful Outrunner brushless motor since I like to keep all of my 3D models as light as possible. I have heavier RC models such as flying my Scale Hangar9 F4-1D Corsair 50-size Electric at 7.7lbs. and well that's an entirely different topic. (See my Avatar Picture).

Okay, here's my setup::

Power System:
- Exceed-RC's Monster Power Series - Monster Power 25 (63M52)

Kv: 870Kv ; Input Watts: 550W
Resistance: .03 ohms; Idle Current: 2.40A
Continuous Current: 32A; Max Burst Current: 44A
Cells Ni-Cd/Ni-MH: 10-14; Cells Li-Po: 3-4
Weight: 6.0 oz (170g); Overall Diameter: 1.4 in (35mm)
Shaft Diameter: 4mm; Overall Length: 48mm

ESC: E-Flite 40-AMP Lite Pro (V2).


SERVOS:
I have pretty much have Hitec HS-85MG for Elevator & HS-85BB for rudder plus HS-82BB+ for the ailerons.

Propeller to start will be a wooden Master Airscrew 10 X 6

Battery to start will be the GEN ACES 3-Cell, 2600mAH, 45C, Lithium Polymer pack (new).

Dual Rates to my liking and followed the setups from another model in conservative values to start.

The Receiver is the Spektrum AR8000 + SAT.

It all started over here!

It will be until Monday as Central Florida is getting lots of rain and thunder storms, I guess we are in Summer!

Practice sessions are takeing place almost every night. To date this event has rivaled our January first FROSTY FINGERS FLY for participants.It is worth mentioning last years winners plane flew for for more time and altitude than ever imaginable. Resulting in severe cramps to our necks and eyeballs. The landing was known to only the dwellers of a land far far away. This years event is gearing up to succeed that recording setting flight. If you dont come and witness this spectacular amount of sun eclipsing Rubber band powered Cloud Tramps for yourself than you will just have to read about it in the newspapers GONNA BE BIG. this event is open to all comers. field closed to normal rc flying. leave those at home. ps all cloud tramps most be STOCK CONFIGURATION. Balsa stock or so prop rubber and winds unlimited. Hint, bring binoculars. See ya there. CRaig

Review Part 4 - MinimumRC Micro Spitfire Warbird BNF Kit Test Flights, Review Conclusion, & Setup

I love these Micro / Nano Planes from MinimumRC!
This is the third Plane from MinimumRC I have reviewed thus far and this BNF Kit is courtesy of MinimumRC.
These Planes are so small and light they make great Planes for flying outdoors in smaller areas and for flying indoors during the Winter or when the weather won't permit flying outdoors.
I think MinimumRC is doing some very good things in the design of these Planes and they also have a great inventory of electronics for your own Micro / Nano Plane projects.
The Builds are pretty simple and the downloadable Build Manual really makes it easy.
If you've never checked out MinimumRC you should take a look @ https://www.minimumrc.com/

This is the final video in the Review of the MinimumRC Micro Spitfire!
I wanted to get in a couple more flights on this Plane and then give you my Conclusion and Setup for a Successful Maiden Flight ;-)

Here is a link to the PDF File with the Setup I used for this Micro Spitfire:

Foam Concept Jets has a PDF plan.
Foamboard/EDF (70mm). Not perfect scale
representation.... but it flies OK.

I used the plan but modified it slightly.
I retained elevons only, but changed
their shape. It will fly better if you
change to a more perpendicular
hinge line (across the wingtip),
and use their dihedral, as shown.

Their PDF was a good starting point,
and the CG is good as shown on
that PDF.

Fun project. Changed to 47”L x 44”W,
80mm, 6s. Arm launch, belly land.
Simple, cheap, and fun, but foam
board just doesn’t last long enough!

As you can imagine, a large flight
envelope doesn't exist. Best to stay
at, or near 'military power', use shallow
banks, and don't forget to add about
3/8"+ reflex at arm launch, then trim
some out on first pass.

Keep your airspeed up in shallow,
level banks or the nose will drop
fast under the horizon.

What else.... I gave this F117 a 'Nascar
fan/ pace car' paint job... 75 feet,
at 75 MPH detail. Dull black hides
the modified hinge line, dihedral,
and 30% wider body. This is definitely
not 'scale'... funny, I get more comments
at the field about this plane than
anything else.

Planning another larger F117.
Only change will be using
an EDF (or two) with more blades
for better sound than the
Delta-V 32 80mm fan.

Have fun.

Some action shots of me flying my 95" 3DHS Extra during last autumn (2019) against some dark clouds. Typically these photos are rare finds as you just can't take pics of yourself flying .

Thanks Kevin Rowland for the photos!

5g servos
5030 gemfan
12A ESC
120 grams flying weight .


PrinTED Wing 01 for that 3D printed plane .. Wow , took a long time to print , and the weight ? Those wing panels are stiff and strong and HEAVY .
Oh boy ! , no wonder this plane comes in close to half a kilo flying weight ?
Printing Wing 02 at the moment .
Honestly , this plane needs to go on a diet . ( It is going to be a HUGE PORK Chop )

Panels weigh ! 42.5 grams and 42.9 grams for 85.4 grams in total for a partial wing .
Still have panels 02 - 03 and 04 to do ...

Testing UV-C disinfection robot. The robot is equipped with 2 cameras (wifi and fpv) and remote control.
A separate switch on the RC is used to turn on and off of UV rays. The prototype is currently being tested and improved.

I am mostly interested in building and flying discuss-launched gliders. I am just recently returning to RC planes after a long (many years) break. In my younger years, I flew large RC gliders using high-starts or winches. My favorite back in those days was a Sailaire which had a 12.5 foot wingspan.

Currently I have a Dream-Flite Libelle and a rough, ugly DLG that I play around with and call "Ugly Bird". I'm also building a (hopefully) much better DLG from an old short kit. The Ugly Bird has (poorly) vacuum bagged wings based on AG04 airfoils and uses a carbon shaft and rod along with a model rocket nose-cone and tube as the fuselage. It is ugly, but, it flies a bit better than the Libelle.

私はビーチが好きではありません。特に日傘や人混みで埋め尽くされたビーチは、スクリーン越しに太陽の灼熱 をかぐことができるようです。 湯気と人と騒々しい声で海には一向に興味がありませんでした。
私は海を見たことがないので、ずっと海を見に行きたいと思っていました。 しかし、私の心の中の海はいったいどんな様子なのだろうか。 私は思った。それはきっと一つの通りの果てにあったに違いない。これは少しも目立たない狭い道で、道の両側 には高低差のある家屋が敷き詰められていた。白い壁面の色はすでにくすんでいて、何年か成ったように見えた 。 家の根底に沿って雑草が生えていて、誰もわざと手入れをしていないのに、相変わらずよく生えていて、よく見 ると指先ほどの小さな黄色い花があります。
こうして、この道をまっすぐ行くと、途中で稲の生えた田んぼが見えてくるかもしれないし、何もないかもしれ ない。 しかし、道の果てには必ず海が見えて、海が大きいかどうかも、漁師が生計を立てているかどうかも気にしない で、私はただ知っていて、これは私の海に対する最もロマンチックな想像です。
これまで、海は多くのイメージを与えられて、昔の人はその壮大な志を述べて、海はこのように壮大で壮観な体 で私達の記憶の中に印刷したようで、昔から変わらない。 しかし私はいつも感じて、それは自分のもので、その使命は子供たちの遊びの成長の過程を目撃することで、年 を重ねて、静かで静かで、これまで波で人気を取ったことがなくて、月の満月の欠乏に伴って上げ下げしたこと がありません。
平凡な少しも目立たなくて、私の海に対する想像で、私の人生に対する追求で、もしかすると、これは1つの生 まれつきの趣味の淡々とした女子の最大のあこがれです。
オナホドール
実は多くのレトロで、ノスタルジックなものが好きで、いつも感じて、過去のいくつかの小物は歳月の最も良い 記憶です。 昔もとても好きで、昔は本当に1つのすばらしい言葉で、昔の日の色が遅くなって、車、馬、メールはすべて遅 くて、一生ただ1人を爱することができます。 昔の白衣の少年もきれいで、太阳の下の横顔も十分に心の琴線に触れて、目は相対して、一生かもしれなくて、 昔のキャンパスの中で、爱情の最もすばらしい様子があります。
偏執と同じように、マイナーな人が好きな方が、いつも気が行きやすい。 まるで、道路の上空に縦横無尽に交錯する黒い線は、画一的な空よりも美しく、夕暮れ時の暗い黄色の明かりは 、赤みがかった街よりも魅力的だ。 私は思った:私が好きなのはただいくつかの人間の間の花火の気だけです。
海辺の近くに村があって、村は魚を売っていなくて、どの家の門の前にすべて桃の木、モクセイの木が植えて、 どの木の下にすべて1壇の塵封長年の酒を埋めて、酒は強くなくて、かえってすがすがしい香りが漂っています 。
また一年の春、子供は額の汗をぬぐって、無邪気に祖母に向かって笑った。娘は海辺の小さな板の上に出てきた 。一陣の風がそっと海辺に向かって吹いてきた。風の中に花びらが散って、娘の髪を乱した。風が吹いたところ に、誰かがゆっくりと歩いてきた。影が長く伸びて、娘の目に映っていた。
ツバキの花が咲いて、彼は彼女と海を見に来て、約束を破ることがなくて、彼女と海はすべて覚え ています。

LDARC 450x Wing .
This is the plug and play version with a flight control board .
Plug in a S bus Rx and go fly .

I have been so impressed by my 450x wings ( no flight control ) 2s Brush-less and 1s Brushed versions .. ( They fly great )
So I promised myself that as soon as the PNP was discounted I would buy one ..
And that was just recently .. Less than 100 ozzi bananas .
Hopefully get some more Rx ASAP .
If this thing flies stable and stability does a good job , I will put in a FPV camera .



Ooops . printing the wing right now . A long , long ............................ Long ! print time for the wing .
