Really gotta work on my blog, I don't like talking to myself so this is one of those things I have difficulty keeping up with.
As of so far I've done some fun builds.
Did a shark plane I called "sharknado" last year just for fun, but it didn't do well since I refused to make the fins 'wings" oversized for better stability I wanted to keep it more shark looking even tho I knew that would hurt how it would fly. It did fly like it was in a tornado hence the name.
The VX-30 concept space plane was an interesting build, ended up with three of them, tried my hand at edf with one of them, learned a lot about edf builds with that one.
The "Sprimbo" a blended wing that Mike Springer designed that I took the liberties of changing it up a little more to my liking...and naming it too...came out to be a pretty good flyer after a bit of testing and adjustments and with some input swapping with Mike. Liked it so much I ended up with three different variations of it.
And the latest is what I decided to call the JAC-1 "just another canard" plane. It's actually from a picture that I had downloaded a while back from somewhere that someone else had designed but may have not built one. Did some searching but came up empty so I decided to go for it with any info and built it based on the picture I had.

Just received from friends few samples of new great product CarboFlow. Very impressive quality for reasonable price is combination what I personally like) Density range is from 60g/m2 to fantastic 16g/m2 !!
Prefer to sell few first rolls as repairing kits by size 400x325mm approx to see how many people interesting. 60g/3 layers ($25 shipped) , 40g/2 layers ($20 shipped) and 400x300mm 20g/2 layers ($18 shipped) available. Also, have few smaller sheets 280x200mm of 40g/m2 and 20g m/2 2 layers($15 shipped)
Let's try and you'll be surprised) Note please, shipping cost was calculated to US.

I bought my son the a959-b, after running it just a few minutes it shut off only the steering. Turn it off and back on it will run a few seconds and shut off only steering again. Anybody have this issue or know of a fix?

Next month is my 15th Anniversary on RCG and my 15th Anniversary of being back in R/C after 15 years off. While my available time to slope and DS has ebbed and flowed, I'm now self-employed and let's just say the boss is a DS addict too! I've recently pared down the hangar but still have a pretty healthy stable of slope and DS ships, a 3m Ellipse 3cam, a few foamies, and a yet-to-be maidened Explorer 2.5 for flat field thermal use. I also have a single electric plane, an HK EFX Racer.

Je m'entête également avec le "precision landing" mais vous allez voir qu'en faisant des heures sup, tout arrive !!! lol .

Je précise que je n'ai fais aucune retouches aux images du drone mais on perd un peu en qualité avec le rendu Youtube. En bref, je suis toujours aussi content de cet appareil qui reste pour moi, un des meilleur rapport qualité prix dans sa catégorie. Bon Film à Tous !

Motor Link
Prop Driver Link

I do like small motors , really I do !

Testing was with a 30A ESC - 2200 2s and a few props ...

6x3 = I saw between 2 and 2.3 amp with this prop . With the motor on my scales in a pusher configuration I saw between 85 and 90 grams of thrust .
5x4 = I saw between 2 and 2.3 amp with this prop . With the motor on my scales in a pusher configuration I saw between 85 and 90 grams of thrust .
5x3 = I saw between 2 and 2.3 amp with this prop . With the motor on my scales in a pusher configuration I saw between 85 and 90 grams of thrust .

Yes ! , I did copy and paste ! Because between the 6x3 to 5x3 there was little difference on 2s .

On a plane that comes in around 100 grams flying weight , this motor could be just the ticket !

Bullet prop driver !
I ordered some of these COS I need them ..
The EZIO might need one if I remove the factory prop .
The Firstar might need one ,
And the Racestar motor certainly needed one ..
For those motors with 1.8 to 2mm shafts , it pays to have a few of these handy .
Mine is a little chewed as I have been using pliers to tighten the prop nut .

Is there anybody out there in CZECH who can help me.

This is the first launch of my new fishing and underwater video boat. I hope now there will be enough space for me under the normal “window to the underwater world”, and under the submersible module of underwater video surveillance, and under the fishing gear and everything else

Following the launch. Weight may be slightly less than the estimated 50 instead of 60kg. Everything else is basically ok. Because of the submersible video module, I was especially worried about lateral stability, but even here everything is ok. Stability with a margin.

This one is sure to be popular. It's the 20 size version of the Bingo! by Doc Mathews. Ace used to sell kits of the Bingo, Bingo 40, and the Big Bingo (120 size) but as far as I know they never produced the 20 size.

It should be perfect for that Saito 30 or OS 26 Surpass that you have sitting around looking for a home.
