Picture 6 shows the correct bulkhead attachments 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...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 beer. 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.

 JST Connector Plug Cable Male
- You will need one male connector to power g2d from cg035 without external power need.
