I'm pleased to show my next custom RC work - Project Chimera. Callie Graphics pulled through with my custom decals last week and I was finally able to apply them on my project, which is a highly modified 3-year old BlitzRCWorks Deltawing 50mm EDF Jet.

BlitzRCWorks Deltawing 4S 50mm EDF Jet - Project Chimera (3 min 26 sec)

This was a little EDF jet that I picked up from Banana Hobby 3 years ago for $65, and was a surprisingly excellent jet on the stock 3S system. But the stock color scheme was absolutely awful. My friend Brad offered to change the scheme with his airbrush skills, and I accepted his offer.

The overall appearance and high agility represented the Dassault Mirage 2000, so I chose that main scheme. Interesting enough, the side profile also has hints of the F-16 (with its bottom intake scoop and vertical fin), and the turtle deck reminds me of an A-4 - Hence, I nicknamed it the Chimera (the Greek mythical creature which composed of parts from different animals).

The stock 3S system has also been replaced with a 4S setup. A dynamically-balanced XRP 4S 50mm 11-Blade 4200KV Unit has been drop-in fitted, and a ZTW Beatles 40a ESC with 3a SBEC has been installed.

Durability was also a factor. A custom bass wood block has been mounted in the underbelly of the nose section with a curved music wire strake. This acts as a shock-absorbing nose skid that prevents the nose from digging into the grass or turf on landing touchdown. The front intake and intake...Continue Reading

Tinywhoop with micro HD camera (1 min 31 sec)

This is probably the cheapest way to get hd footage from your tiny whoop. I installed a 5$ sq11 camera on top. In order to save weight I decased it. Quality of the footage is still mediocre.

Halloa peoples

Sooo yes you probably know the T-Motor brand and there is a good change you use, or have used them (cause they also OEM for other brands).. But T-Motor has a reputation of making slightly more expensive motors probably?
Recently however they released some Budget motors (Velox) and mid-range (Pacer) motors In the video I review the last ones after doing at least 100 flights with them..

The motors: T-Motor Pacer P2207.5 (4S and 6S versions available) drone motors

For my tests with these motors I used CNHL 1100mah 6S Black Series lipo's.. I would hereby like to appologize to those lipo's :P

Took my FMS 800 V-tail out for a spin .
Just recently flashed OpenTx 2.3.7 , so looks like trims were a little . Or maybe it was that last time I flew the V-tail it was windy ?
Either way ..

Elevator a little touchy , Ailerons a little soft ..
Still , I really like this one . I should fly it more .

I got a chance to duck out and do some sloping today.
The forecast only called for a 1 hr window of the correct direction wind,I have wanted to get out with my 3m Crystal to see if she flew as well on the slope as she had for her maiden "flat land " outing .
