Do FPV simulators really help? What's the best way to get started in FPV? 🤔

In this video I'll give you my answers to both these questions

I go over . . .
- the benefits of using a Sim to hone your flight skills
- take a quick look at the "Top 3" Sims
- use one of them to build a basic custom track (in 40 sec's!)
- and demo 4 practice drills you can use to get started with FPV flight! 🤩👍

This is my Durafly Ugly Stick V2 Electric Sports Model 1100mm Unboxing & Review video.

Durafly Ugly Stick V2 Electric Sports Model 1100mm RC Plane Unboxing & Review (6 min 31 sec)

Review Notes for this RC Airplane from Hobby King:

Pros:
- Very nice finish on the paint
- The wood prop looks really cool
- Robust landing gear
- Steerable tail wheel
- This is a four-channel plane for a full experience

Cons:
- The manual was simplified, but left you to your own experience to fill in some of the blanks.
- The battery bay could be better suited for the recommended battery.

I will update this with more videos & other details over time

I wanted a disk wing model in my fleet, and tried to put as much star trek shape/decoration into it but still make it flyable as an R/C rocket glider. The star trek ships do not lend themselves to rear mounted motors as the disk and cg requirements are very far forward.

The disk is 19" and gives a much larger area than it visually looks, glide is quite good for the shape of the model. The deflector dish is the end of the nose cone I cut off, reverse and glue back in, the antenna is a piece of spare 3mm carbon rod I rounded off and drilled/glued into the dish. Dish is colored with gold sharpie pen, the warp engine front is tamiya acrylic orange brushed on, the decals here were hand cut but stickershock has the patterns now. Length is 47", disk is 19", 2.6" diameter, weight 11.25 oz rtf using a 24mm E-6 rocket motor. Wing is 6mm depron, warp motor is 9mm depron with 6mm depron laminated on both sides of the engine to allow some rounding to be done for visual effect. The disk decoration is simply a sharpie pen taped to a compass, for the larger circles I taped chop sticks to my compass to extend the legs and then taped the sharpie to one of the legs. The model required a bit of down trim for boost due to the draggy tail and high mounted wing, but that was it.

The day was very clear as was the moon, so I intentionally steered during boost to set up for a moon crossing which timed out great with the theme music.

DustOff Flight #3 - Eachine Mini Mustang P51D Warbird RTF Expert Mode in 6-8mph Wind Start to Finish ;-)

This Aircraft is courtesy of Banggood!

DustOff Flight #3 in Expert Mode with Wind on the ground of 6-8mph (10-13kph) and I'm guessing 12-16mph (19-26kph) approx. 20 feet up.
I wish I could take off from the ground with this Plane but it's too rough here and it noses over.
It's a bit of a handful in this much Wind and the Wind got strong enough at one point where I could barely turn it back into the Wind ;-)

x440 was purchased us ed in good condition with a brushed geared 480 and no ESC

Proposed :

motor is an Axi 2820-10
40 -60 amp ESC with brake
12/6 folder
3-4 S 2200 Graphene lipo
2.4 Spektrum 6 ch RX
DX9 TX

Wings are approx 170-180 grams

Approx weight of proposed items are 749 grams
Total RTF 929 grams or 32 oz

My concern is that there will not be enough nose weight compared to the original motor and nicad cells.

However a preliminary check shows that this will not be a problem with a 2200 4S Graphene pack or a smaller lighter 1000 3 or4S pack.

I have a Kunai wing that fits the X440 fuse. It is heavier than the stock 440 wing. With 2 spoileron servos she weighs 262 grams which is about 80 grams heavier. Wing area of 308 sq inches would be higher and put the combination into a Warmliner class....Continue Reading

First off, I learned how to do this from reading Kallend's blog. I am in no way trying to take credit for his work. I am simply trying to help other people out so they better understand how to get this whole thing working. When I read through his blog for the first time, I had many questions and didn't understand some things. The purpose of this guide is to help those who were like myself get the afterburner unit installed successfully.

Please check out Kallend's blog, since he deserves the original credits for this. He also offers a more advanced version of this afterburner that runs off an arduino board that can flicker. I will not be covering that in this guide. This guide will cover the basic, bare-bones LED afterburner setup.

So, let's start off with the basics. Here's what you will need to get started..

Materials:
Optional:
Preamble:
This guide assumes you have basic soldering skills. If you do not, then I don't recommend going any further until you do. There's plenty of guides on soldering on Youtube. Go watch those and get some practice and come back when you're ready. This guide will show you how to setup and get your LED unit...Continue Reading

How do i reattach antenna to receiver ? Its snapped at the solder point. I have soldered it back , messily as im a beginner , but its definitely connected.

I read a thread on here and i quote ''configuration .. is critical'' so is there a specific way ? All wires look the same in the casing theyre jus thin copper ones , about 5 or 6 of em.
