No manual exists. I saw an ancient blurry photo online that held the key.

1. Epoxy ply rails in place, buttress them, and drill holes. It is easy to do this if the fuselage is not fully in place. Otherwise you’ll have to cut. Use a micro-saw against the grain of balsa and a hobby knife with the grain.

2. Connect the steering mechanism first. Run a stiff line from rudder servo to the clevis at the swivel point. I’d recommend a braided cable if a wire rod isn’t available. I ran mine inside a flex tube that was epoxied to the fuse every two inches. The steering mechanism must swing parallel to the motion of the retract. The nose wheel strut must be firmly held into place by an Allen screw.

3. Open the control rod metal clevis and put the outermost swing arm inside the clevis pin. Make sure the clevis pin goes to the outside away from the strut. Put a metal clip in the brass pin of the clevis. Do not use any other method to secure the clevis such as a 1/16” portion of fuel line.

4. Make sure the nose retract locks both down and up. The control rod clevis for the retract must match the distance. I recommend doing this in the down position.

5. Screw the retract in place making sure the blind nuts seat or bite firmly into the ply rail.

6. A mechanical retract typically uses one strong servo and bends wires into a round servo control piece. Make sure the servo is the the down position when hooking up the clevis arms on the retracts.

Note. The photos were taken when replacing broken retracts that had been epoxied into place. The Hobbico mechanical retracts from 1995 did not match the holes of their 1999 version. All the innards did match, so I swapped out the sides. For whatever reason both old and new nose wheel retracts had rail screws glued into place. Two of the four screws in EACH retract had to be sawed off.

Flying with HF3D on the OMP M2

I thought that as a novice pilot I wouldn't really be able to tell the difference between the stock flight controller and the Heliflight3D controller. I was pleasantly surprised to be proved wrong.

Although the OMP M2 has received a lot of praise for its build quality and flying characteristics, there have been some criticism regarding a 'robotic' or 'notchy' feel to the cyclic response. This quirk is thrown into sharp relief by the HF3D controller, which has no dead-band at all. I found that this makes a big difference to the kind of flying that I am doing - hovering practice in different orientations, slow controlled flight and accurate spot landings - where many small corrections are required. Perhaps better pilots can easily work around this (or with appropriate curves in the transmitter), but I now realise that I was battling against this dead-band on top of trying to learn basic flying skills.

The M2 is simply easier to fly with the hf3d controller. I've dialled down the cyclic rate on the transmitter to 40%, tail to 70% and with a tame pitch curve, I have a fluid, responsive and smooth flying machine that any novice could use.

Of course, the hard core 3d pilots will appreciate the tail holding ability of this controller too, but I am some way from stressing this aspect of the flight envelope.


I now have some very useful information coming back to my transmitter. I have set alarms based on the power...Continue Reading

An RC Pilot Goes to Heaven

One day when life is over
And before my Lord I stand,
He’ll look at me with eternal love
And a model in His hand.

It’ll look just like the one I flew
Upon the wind so free.
I’d built it in my shop to fly
And from the world set free.

Jesus held it out for me
And asked me how it flew.
Memories came flooding in right then
It was my life reviewed.

He asked me if I’d really felt
The Creator’s hand in mine?
To plan, to cut, to sand, and coat,
Until the plane was fine.

He opened my mind to see the save
When that earthward plunge pulled up
I saw His hand beneath the wings
And yet I counted it luck.

I heard my heart then heave a sigh
When flying out of sight
Up and up, it went so high,
No longer in the sky.

A little prayer I’d prayed that day
He’d heard it bye and bye.
But I missed how He comforted me
Flying buddies by my side.

I remembered all with clarity
No longer with remorse.
The Lord had been there all along,
A Friend to me, of course.

I took the plane from the Master’s Hands
And looked at it anew.
Jesus had kept it safely here
A joy for me He knew.

I launched the plane, it flew away.
‘Twas perfect now like me.
I saw the twinkle in His eye,
A friend to modelers He.

Built this for an O scale model railroad.
Alaska RR never had a marine division so this sort of just developed over emails in a few days time.
Tug, car float and the ramp to get off the dry land.
Well weathered for that authentic model railroad look

This was the third time learning to fly the Eflite P39 Airacobra using the 12/8 APC prop and 2200 4S SMART lipo. Weather was 3 mph crosswind and 60F so we concentrated on low approaches and go arounds. We found out the lowest power setting for taxi and it turned out to be between 25-30% throttle setting on the DX6 (students) and DX9 (instructors) on screen display. We set throttle cut and moved the throttle up to 25-30% and then uncut the throttle. The P39 broke away from the fabric runway and with in 5 seconds (Throttle Cut Delay) the P39 reached a top speed of about 3-5 mph. We used this same throttle setting on the downwind and then on final with gear and flaps 100 the P39 had a nice descent. We kept her high to clear the 60 ft trees (that have claimed many models) and then once clear used full down (SAFE On limited to about a 40 degree dive) to level off in ground effect (5-7 ft). With only rudder she touched down smooth as silk with this 5 mph taxi power setting. No bounce no guessing when to flare just landing with power on. The hardest part is to take your eyes off the model and setting 25-30% throttle setting. No throttle curve or other adjustments needed.

We tried a 4 yr old 3200 4S pack and got more time but when the countdown timer said 20 seconds to land I made a steep descent clean and put the gear down at about 50 ft. The 2 second setting for gear and 100% flaps was just in time as I touched down in the grass 1 ft away from the fabric...Continue Reading

Hello, I have a little problem:

I have acquired a cnc mill and would like to cut out an airplane kit for a DeHavilland Beaver. The plans are in a pdf format.
My cnc software is CNCjs and only takes g-code files. I've taken the pdf and cut out the part with all the parts on it, that need cutting out.
My problem:
I need to turn this pdf file into a g-code file. This has proved quite difficult for me, due to the fact, that the converted g-code file doesn't show the parts, but only seemingly random rectangles, triangles and other shapes.

If you need any extra information, feel free to ask.

Audio transcription is the process of converting speech in an audio file into written text.

In simplest form, it is the transformation of verbal communication and audio materials into text format. Interviewers, court reporters, professional secretaries and web design specialists create audio transcripts as part of their everyday job responsibilities.

For many businesses across the globe, audio transcription is an essential part of the daily grind. There has been a huge shift in content from written to audio and video, meaning there’s reams of data to be typed up by an audio transcription service.

The Benefits of Using Transcription
No matter what your goals are, audio transcribers can help you. Individuals find the affordable pricing, unbeatable accuracy and fast turnaround time to be a tremendous benefit of using transcription services. Many people will send their interviews, research notes and more before they go to bed and wake up to a fully-transcribed document in their inbox.

Best and easy way to distribute information
While you can share information in the audio format, it is difficult to access and use such files, as and when you need them. This is not the case with audio transcriptions. With an audio transcript in hand, you can read them in PDF or .doc formats and even print them out. The versatility of audio transcripts make it easy to use and share on an anytime, anywhere basis.

A batch of heroic soldering, a reversed buck converter, & the motors came to life. Mounting those right angle hall effect sensors took some doing. Mounting the motors was another buster. Things aren't as modular as hoped.

A few dozen more farsteners would go a long way. Given how many farsteners were in the standard model copter, the lion kingdom might have over emphasized efficiency of farsteners. The wires aren't very vibration proof either. It could stand to use another plate with wire traps .

After voltage testing, a few strange sounds, the wheels lunged forward. It was still running firmware for calibrating the motors & it showed the drivers were installed correctly.
