Time to test the Super Cub MOD we performed by replacing the single 9g Servo with two 4.4g Servos and programming Flaperons.
Here we go ;-)

前回切り出したハッチとwtc側も、指で押すと撓むので補強を施す。
ハッチあわせ面の反対側(外側)とwtcあわせ面の反対側(内側)にそれぞれカーボンロービン グ
を樹脂で貼り付けて補強した。

ハッチの強度は十分になったがwtc側はまだ撓むので、カーボンプレートを貼り付けて再補強し た。
2㎜ボルトを内側からスーパーxで接着し、バッテリーハッチ完成。

パッキンはシリコンシーラントで作る予定。

Sunset Cruise with the Armattan Gecko and the Caddx Turtle, this time on 3S instead of 4S, went faster than expected.

I set the Turtle from 60 to 30 FPS for a change. For that golden hour look I reduced blue significantly in the editor. The sound is recorded from the Caddx and heavily filtered as usual.

It's been a while but I have started taking a thermal glider along when I venture to our hill if the wind isn't to strong, maybe 15 mph max. Surprisingly the slopers fly ok with about 10-12mph but you will be hugging the slope with very little altitude, luckily there is almost always some thermal action going on and you can take advantage of that for more altitude and aerobatics. Today was supposed to be south wind 10-15mph. When I got there the wind had switched pretty dramatically, it was blowing about 10+ mph out of the west. No big deal, just go to the west face of the hill. I got some time in with the Slope Runt, the Falco and the Malibu which was I think originally designed for slope with a fully sheeted wing, but the later open frame wing version is thermal and slope. Lift wasn't great but enough. Here I need to go back a bit in time. I had flown the Malibu for the first time several months ago on a pretty breezy day and apon launch it was clear something wasn't right, she balloned up alarmingly and immediate down stick was needed to get her into level flight to prevent a stall, with my left hand I fed in down trim, a lot, while pushing forward on the stick till she started flying somewhat level. I flew a few more times with lot's of down trim. Going back a lot further ie about 50 years in time I now know why Malibu #1 crashed on it's first flight, it did the exact same thing as Malibu #2, only this time I had the experience to prevent disaster. Back to now....Continue Reading

Some real props are due to my dear friend Jeff out in northern Georgia.

Jeff is not a hobbyist, but he enjoys the work and the blogs I do here and elsewhere and he coined an interesting new synonym for an R/C model plane.

"Clanger." After all, do model planes not crash - or clang - on occasion?

Therefore, it's my pleasure to update my blog with a progress report on the newly christened Rat Clanger.

The engine was a wee bit gummy, although some WD-40 and a bit of exercise with an electric starter loosened it up. The glow plug was good, compression nice and high and the carburetor worked freely.

The engine is an O.S. Max 28F two-stroke from the 1980s. Most of the patina is likely from sitting rather than use and it looks perfect on this model. I've had it for about four years and heaven only knows when it had last run. Today would be the day that I would connect the fuel tank and throttle rod from my test stand, set the carb and give 'er a go.

That little O.S. fired up with a small blip of the starter and idled beautifully! It even ran up to full throttle perfectly. Here was an engine which was at least thirty years old returning to life as if nothing had happened. That's a real testament to the quality of O.S. engines and now I feel confident to proceed!

this year I have 4 planes to maiden; FMS Me109F, Flite line f4u-1 corsair, Extreme Focke Wulf 190 A, Black Horse Macchi202.

FMS Me109 arrived with 2 stripped flap servos, and the spoons on the elevators bent in opposite directions so far that even full elevator deflection would not bring them to neutral. I had one of these in 2012 and I left it in the car all summer and the foam got brittle. i replaced the servos with slightly bigger ones, then left the plane in the car all day. surprisingly we got enough sun to bring them back enough to encourage me so i pre stressed the spoons and in about a week they were acceptable.

test flight was uneventful i forgot how light this plane was. i added the zip tie mod and have a vibration at top end so don't think it gained me anything. so at some point i will probably replace the long blades with the short ones with no zip tie

Flite line f4u-1 corsair - I had this plane for ever it seams. initially hooked it up to the blue box and all was good w the world. then as the months rolled by the reports of blue box failures started to come in. having a little experience with circuit boards and a flight line spit I made sure the E,A, and R all went directly to the rx. when the rain broke I took it to the field and the flaps would not work. to test that I did not have the tx setup wrong I plugged the flap plug from the blue box to the aileron rx and still nothing. so back home I ran the flaps directly to the rx and looked up which lg...Continue Reading

WTCの上部をFRPで製作。下部と同様、サフェージングマット1プライ+ガラスクロス(100g/m2)4プライ。
バッテリーハッチ部分も製作中。

樹脂の硬化待ち時間にdive planeの造作も行う。
ホーンはエポキシ樹脂をまぶしたカーボンロービングを横舵中央の軸に巻いてから棒状に撚って、
PP板で挟んで養生すると、板状のカーボンホーンの出来上がり。
スケグのようなところにdive planeを設置するので、側面に0.5㎜厚のFRP板を貼り付けて、ホーンが
動く部分のプラスチックを掘る。
木ネジとFRPの押さえ板で固定するので取り外し可です。
カーボン繊維を撚ってから平らにしてあるので、リンケージの穴を空けても裂けることはないはず 。
