I was on youtube and saw a very interesting video on Laminating Film ..
A gentleman was showing some one how to repair a damaged EPP Foam plane ..
And I thought , wow .

What I found local ( Australia ) was some 0.04mm laminating film . ( Sold by Renz - Australia ) For all you Ozzies ..
Now I have only done a little research and a little testing with this stuff , so maybe get on youtube and search Laminating Film .
It will apparently do open structures .
And it will bond to Foam at reasonable temperatures .
I was using just a ordinary clothing Iron at around 50% temp range .

The stuff I got is 440mm wide and some 200 meters in length ( 600 feet ) and as mentioned 0.04mm thick . ( 10 thou )
There is a bright shinny side and a dull side , the dull side has the glue .
The first thing I did when the roll arrived was to take a soft pliable piece of foam and laminate it on all sides . ( Just a 5mm or so thick bit of foam sheet )
After laminating it it was much stiffer and felt a lot stronger ( as it should )

Using the laminating film for repairs ....
This is where it gets interesting , when you damage foam it can lose its integral strength / stiffness and become very soft and pliable .
This happened to a little chucky I got , the elevators had lost all their strength and stiffness .
Using the laminating film to cover both sides , the elevators are nice and stiff , holding their shape really well .

With things like foam safe glue , we can now glue a smashed...Continue Reading

Hi there people

so.. I'm pretty sure that if you are into quads, you noticed that Diatone released a Boatload of quads this year.. I think to manny actually, but I'm sure they thought things through
All of those quads were racers / general purpose quads though (correct me if I'm wrong).. We now allso have a 2018 version of their Freestyle quad though.. The Tyrant

Link to the 6" version: Diatone 2018 GT-Tyrant 630

The 5" - 4S version: Diatone 2018 GT-Tyrant 530 4S

The 5" - 6S version: Diatone 2018 GT-Tyrant 530 6S

in this topic I will take a close look at the 6" version, but if you have any of these, feel free to add your thoughts / experiences with them

To start with.. Here is a detailed first look at it:

nar·cis·sism - extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one's own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type.

I do not frequent this forum as much as I did in years past. Wait, let me rephrase that. I do not POST in this forum as often as I did in years past. Why is that? Mainly because there are way TOO many self appointed, narcissistic genius' that know everything there is to know present here. Since I am not as self absorbed and insecure, I do not feel the need to contribute to threads as often as I used to.

Being a glow engine person about the only forums I look at are the Engine, Fuel Plane Talk, and Aircraft - Fuel - Engines and Accessories in the Classified section. I might look at Trader Talk for some comic relief now and then too.

But man, there are a few daily posters that just cannot help themselves when it comes to 'one-upmanship' and feeling that incessant need to post in EVERY thread possible whether what they are posting is relevant to the subject of the thread or not. These people often derail the original thread topic to their own agenda whenever possible. I can only wonder if they were not held or hugged enough as a child. What horrors have they experienced to need such constant attention and the feeling to be superior?

At first it was somewhat comical, but of late it is a real put off to even reading the posts in this forum. I suppose this forum is not special. These individuals most likely exist on other forums too. At least in the past, before the advent of the internet our/my contact with such people was minimal or extremely limited. Of course that was also back in the day when such people were dealt with in ways that, in today's mamby pamby society, would get you sent to jail. In the military these 'correctional' deeds were referred to as 'blanket parties'. It was amazing how behavior was modified and 'adjusted' quite readily then. Ah, the good ole days....

Alas, today the world is filled with keyboard confidence and big talk.

Still windy ( Gale force ) = Oh dear !

The blue bomb ( hand throw plane ) = Bent bird .

So been trying to find the CG ...

To this effect I used a fair amount of Hot glue and the plane still flew like a spear !
Though ! .. The more weight added to the back , the further it went .

So I gave up on the hot glue and moved to LEAD .. ( Lead shot to be precise - No4 shot ? I don't know )
If you look at the pictures , I made two holes as far back as possible and then pushed lead shot into the holes ..
First two then four , and each time the plane glided better ...
Bottom line , it took 14 pieces of shot + a bit of foam safe cyno .. ( Glue the shot )
So in one of the pictures you will see the mould line where my CG currently sits just a little behind ..
I would suggest @ the mould line or just ahead if you plan to RC ( As a starting point )

Thats it for this one , I might Chuck it some , but I will not RC it , just too many funky bends ...

I did mention in the previous thread that I fixed the elevators with some laminating film ..
Me thinks olds likes the laminating film ...

I didn't mention the model in the photo on my last blog because I hadn't yet flown it.

This, I must say, was among the most pleasant surprises I had in a long time.

This was one of four models given to me by a friend who had a kit manufacturing company at one time. The proliferation of ARF and RTF models, while expanding the hobby as a whole, hurt his business.

Anyway, two models were complete and this was one of the two complete models. The other was a three-channel airplane of his own design called "The Sparrow." I'd seen this model fly and I now own it. Unfortunately, the servo arm for the rudder broke in flight. I'd never seen one fail! Damage is done, but fixable since it crashed in thick grass. We're getting together soon to assess and repair the damage. It's just too cool not to. It strongly resembles a Fokker Eindecker with a toy bust of Anakin Skywalker in his podracer goggles at the controls.

As for this powered glider with a brushed Jeti ESC and motor, an ancient ArtTech 1300mAh 3S li-po and an even more ancient Hitec 72MHz AM receiver, I dragged it into the house to investigate the possibility of a brushless upgrade.

Cleanup began right away and while I knew the glider was in good shape, I didn't know just how good. Revealed beneath the dust was a nearly new, magnificently constructed model lacking only a canopy. No scratches on the wing and almost none underneath the fuselage beyond what one would expect after only a few...Continue Reading

Eachine E015 With Flight Boat Car 3-mode Altitude Hold Mode RC Drone Quadcopter RTF



Eachine again made fun little quadcopter which quickly and easy transforms to boat or car.
It came in big box , everything is really protected and shipping was very fast this time less then 3 weeks.
E015 gives lot of fun in all three modes, and has great flight performance and hold altitude nicely.

Flight time is approximately 5 minutes what is really nice ( battery included 3.7V - 220mAh).
Flight performance is amazing and it is suitable for beginners especially younger ages.
