Wow ! 93 grams / 150 grams and 199 grams ... ( Flying weights )
The elf weighs less than half that of the Techone DLG 1000

From a weight perspective , I think I have things covered .

Swapping out the Timber RX for the V900 RX solved the problem of wing rocking at full throttle with SAFE on or off. This is because the V900 was designed to go much faster than the Timber. There is proper pitch and roll with SAFE on at full speed and at slow speeds.
I recommend the V900 RX instead of the Timber RX for the AVISTAR ELITE.

Specs:
Rimfire 46

I purchased this VQ P-40 Warhawk ARF a few years ago and finally got around to building it. Powered by a Dualsky XM5050EA-8 and a Dualsky 80amp ESC. Electric retracts from FMS. The pilot was scanned from a gear shift knob and 3D printed by a club member. Decals from Callie Graphics. I will be going with a 5 cell setup for the maiden based on the info from Jerry Festa’s review and build in 2016 here on rcgroups. I just need some good weather for a maiden!

Was looking for a new canopies for the blade 130s not much selection that I liked. So I decided to get the 130x canopies. which one is the best?

Very impressed with a v911. Bought the Blade 70s to compare. The v911 is way more controlled in the house.
The blade 70s seems like on a turn it continues to drift or what I like to call hydroplane haha. Also the battery plug for the blade 70s sucks although it is quieter.
The hero RC h911 is a beast.

The "Glue & Fly Series" F-22 Mini V3 (Alpha) has had extensive testing by myself as well as e3Scott.
This Parkjet was nearly production ready on the first build ;-)
We have made some design changes in the Nacelle, Servo Size and Location, as well as to the Aircraft Plans that will make it easier for others to build.
e3Scott's input on these changes, both in the design and plans, has been invaluable and I have had a blast working with him on making this Parkjet even better and watching him fly it with great skill.
I am currently performing Test Flights of the "Glue & Fly Series" F-22 Mini V3 (Beta) and I like what I see ;-)

I appreciate all the support given to me by our Youtube Subscribers so I'm releasing the "Glue & Fly Series" F-22 Micro V1 Plans to our Subscribers.
It takes a lot of funds to purchase several sets of electronics for testing, time to design,...Continue Reading

I am working on designing a 2m polyhedral wingspan glider. I found out that many people says that the V tail angle should be around 110-120 and I choose my glider V tail angle to be 114. After all of that, I found out Mark Drela formula to convert from traditional tail to V tail, and I got that my V tail angle should be 87.7. I would like to have your recommendation for which angle I should use. I had attached the final calculations used for the traditional tail.

So , I got around to connecting the servos to the control surfaces ..
After shrinking the heat shrink tube I got a little liberal with the cyno ...

Anyhow , looks like I am good to go !
Only one thing remains to do and that is glue in the launch peg ..
Oh , and I should check the weight !

I just checked

Oh dear ! ok , it's not under 90 grams ( no no no )

93 grams wet ( flying weight with launch peg )
I guess - Now I have to go and glide it !

what I do (borrowed from the 'net)

Good evening gals & guys!

I do realize that everyone has their favorite RC Transmitter Radio that has pulled them through in this hobby. I have had many Transmitters and the best has been JR XP-7202 and the First GEN DX7 in the JR Case.

I have always wanted to try out the First GEN DX7-SE (Special Edition) which comes with an enhanced RF board that operates at the faster sampling speeds such as 11ms (11 Milli-Second) sample rate.

I had a few disappointments at certain classified boards and finally over at eBay I found someone selling one and I was able to win the bidding session all the way to the last second. There was at least three other people that was head-to-head in trying to get this GEM of a transmitter but, my experience in bidding was no match for these less experienced.

Therefore, I am the proud owner of one First GEN DX7-SE and I just tested it and all systems work as they should. Can't wait to fly my experimental model, Parkzone T-28 Trojan (1.1m wing span).
