Note: Review is unfinished Work in Progress

Being a beginner rider, this bike stole my heart. It beat the SV650 as my all time favorite bike. I think this is because, unlike price-conscious bikes like the SV650 and Shadow 750, the Honda Stateline was designed with gobs of [I]passion[/B]. It's one of the gems in the bike world. It can fit short-ish and large riders.
Just don't say that out loud, about the passion. You might miss out on a lot of great smaller cc bikes or pee off those who are speedier racers than you (I'm talking to you, Bunny)

Description:
The Stateline unfairly gained a 1-up, having a higher price limit. This allows designers and engineers some wiggle room to show off. It's also an evolution of the previous model VTX1300 line. That's okay with me, life not being fair is a 'positive' in the case of the VT1300 line. I usually wouldn't buy a $10,000+ usd bike. But God gave us the used market oh and it was $40/mo less than the SV--so-no-brainer!

With a long low look, radiator neatly nestled into the cradle frame, big phat tires, stretched rake, and stretched stylized tank that doesn't make you open your legs to ride, this bike whispers 'mmmmmmmmmm yahhh mmmmmmm'. Anyone who enjoys motorsports can stare into the engine and daydream for 5 minutes. They really should, it soithes the soul.
I've seen it, myself not included but including certain family members and passerbys. Just stop, maybe even stop breathing, and stare. "Mmmmmmmmmm."

The last 3 times out on the hill {this fall/winter} my hands have gotten pretty cold .
I thought it is about time to do something about the cold as the temps have only been in the low 30's and it gets a lot colder than that here once winter really sets in .
This is the Turnigy transmitter glove ,I had gotten it for Christmas a while ago and had not really given it a try .

I have to say it worked pretty good as long as I could launch with my left and have my right hand in the glove on the stick.
I did fumble a bit getting the left one in, besides the transmitter neck strap i think it needs a attachment point in the middle {on my stomach } to hold it square to my body .
I am also considering adding a Zippo hand /pocket warmer to the glove
I will say that my hands did not get cod / hurting this time out

I got this kit from BH, the kit version for $159 plus tax (free shipping) and got at at my front door tow days later

https://www.bananahobby.com/12-ch-bl...f-jet-kit.html

The kit is lightweight styrofoam and made in China by Lanxiang.

I ordered the Su-47 Berkut previously (as a kit as well) so I'm well aware of all the modifications that will be needed to turn it into a flyable (and enjoyable) model.

Here's how I set up the twin 70 Su-47 Berkut (kit version) :

and here's how I set up the twin Su-35 Super Flanker by Freewing (arf plus version) :

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...df-70mm&pp=100

The current Su-57 one will get a pair of excellent FMS inrunner fans, I have those already, balanced and ready to go :

https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...EDF-fan&pp=100

This is an older (~2015) kit that is nevertheless very lightweight (expected rtf weight ~3.2kg) , as opposed for ex to that new FMS/EFl Su-30 epo brick (4.2kg).

This video is a detailed Unboxing of the E-flite Su-30 Twin 70mm EDF Jet. This is the BNF Basic with AS3X & SAFE Select version of this jet.

Detailed Unboxing Of The E-flite Su-30 Twin 70mm EDF Jet (12 min 3 sec)

Here are the review notes for this Sukhoi EDF Jet:

Pros:

- The assembly was straight forward
- Teardown will be easy at the field for easy transport
- The paint job is really nice
- The air brake is a really cool scale touch
- Bright lights
- Nice retracts with good suspension

Cons:
- The little antennas already added on. For those of us trying to transport it in smaller cars, those are going to cause headaches
- The tail piece should have come magnetic out of the box like the nose cone for easier transport.
- The elevator on one side moved easier than the other.

Ran a dulling experiment on gray mirror-gloss Monokote this afternoon.

1. Steel wool 0000 was barely noticeable.

2. Wet sanding #400 grit sandpaper was mottled over sheeting and slightly better over openings that were covered. Scotchbrite pads may be even better.

3. Best today was the Krylon matte spray finish, but will it last? (I do plan to chip, add panel lines, weather, and seal with matte spray.)

What has been your experience, especially over time?

My concern is spraying over Monokote which can shrink or swell in adverse temperatures and crack the finish.

Simple OpenTx for FPV Quad pilots 🤩

Some FPV quad pilots may be relatively new to FPV OR are transferring over from other operating systems to OpenTX and are unfamiliar with what it is, how it works, and how to use its features. It CAN be a steep learning curve yet doesn’t have to be!
Short video streamlines OpenTx for FPV Quad pilots with basics & essentials demonstrated.
Concept of OpenTX info flow demystified so you can implement features on your own! 👌

NOTE: At about the 3:15 time hack mark I speak of binding the receiver in DI16 mode. "Props" to Roger Hughes for reminding me that "Please note that viewers do not necessarily want to select D16 for FrSky with the muti protocol module. If you try this in Europe it will not bind. You have to scroll on passed D16 to either LBT(EU) or LBT (8 chan) for D16 in the EU"

Turning & burning with a Freewing F-14 Tomcat via head-tracking FPV in a FMS PC-21. I could barely keep pace pegging full power from the start while the Tomcat was only at half power. Still, it was a lot of fun and seeing the Tomcat in the air is like recreating TOP GUN.

Yep Les Amis,
Le pouvoir au creux de la main ! J'ai été agréablement surpris lors du test de ce petit Snaptain SP300 . Les 3 façons de le contrôler en font un engin très ludique pour les enfants et promet de bonne parties seul ou à plusieurs . Prévoyez un peu d'espace pour utiliser le contrôle par capteur infrarouge, sinon, utilisez une des deux radiocommandes fournies. Le pilotage avec le bracelet vous surprendra par sa facilité, précision et sa réactivité . La radiocommande "haricot" est peut être toute petite, mais elle s'adaptera parfaitement à la main des enfants et elle propose un maximum d'options de vol, très pratique pour apprendre à piloter ou juste pour "se la péter" devant les copains ou les parents ! En bref, j'adore ce petit kit aussi complet qu'original ! Bon film et bon vol à tous !!!

Yep Les Amis,
Le résultat est Topissime !!! Après avoir testé quelques caméras de surveillance Wifi individuelles, j'ai décidé d'équiper mon domicile d'un VRAI système 4 caméras, complet, filaire et fiable. Je vous présente donc le pack que j'ai sélectionné, le REOLINK RLK8-410B4 . Ce n'est pas le plus haut de gamme mais il est déjà hyper complet et suffisant pour mon utilisation. Même si ce genre de système n'empêche pas tous les cambriolages, non seulement il en évitera certainement et surtout, il rassurera votre assureur et permettra peut être de retrouver les malfrats (et donc, vos affaires) . Sans parler des voleurs, il permettra également de surveiller les endroits stratégiques de votre habitation, parking, enfants, animaux, portail etc ... Bref, un excellent et rassurant système " plug and play " pour toute la famille à installer sois même. Bon film à tous ...

REOLINK Caméras de surveillance NVR 2Go - Réglages Paramètres - Un excellent système ! (36 min 17 sec)


NOTATAZ : 18/20 Complet et Efficace !

Niveau : Bricoleur ! lol
Les + : Complet, HDD 2To intégré, Facile à paramétrer, Très sécurisé
Les - : Passage des câbles fastidieux...

A true 4ch Micro ... ( 1s ) with stability .

A) Protocol (?)

Yeah , no idea folks . I ran thru all the protocols available on the Jumper T12 Tx and no bind . This is a shame as I think a Hobby Grade Tx just might do wonders for such a small plane .

B) Transmitter

Not complete rubbish , the Tx does seem to offer better than the usual fare of control .

C) The Plane ( Boss )

Not bad , comes fully assembled except for the landing gear which needs to be plugged in ( easy ) . Only issue was that things ( landing gear ) was not very straight . Even the tail wheel was pointed somewhere other than straight . ( Not the end of the world ) But a little bit of straightening was needed as well as a little glue . I took the Cub out in the back yard less battery and gave it a chuck ! I was simply amazed by how well it glides . Without battery CG looks to be about 40% back from the LE . Speaking of batteries , I should have some to play with in my collection .

It's a little breezy right now , but hopefully the wind will ease off for the evening . ( I hope ) So might be able to get in a flight ?




Volantex Sport Cub 500mm 4ch ( Maiden Flight ) (5 min 8 sec)


Wow !
Flew right out of the box !
And I was actually flying @ minimum throttle ( As low as it would go )

A) It flies out of the box
B) After about 5 minutes battery was 3.92v
C) It will fly slow , really slow .
D) It can fly relatively quick as well
E) It is...Continue Reading
