Yep Les Amis,
Tazkiller85 VS LILRockFPV, l'affrontement ultime ! J'attendais avec impatience qu'un fabricant nous sorte une version intéressante de ce que j'avais pu essayer au LUDY LAB, et bien c'est fait ! LDARC nous propose donc le FLYBALL, un racer 3" enfermé dans une cage de protection parfaitement étudiée, simple et efficace ! En version BNF (comme moi), vous n'aurez qu'à installer un récepteur compatible avec votre radiocommande pour pouvoir commencer à piloter en vol à vue et soit vous initier, soit inventer des jeux plus funs les uns que les autres sans risquer d'endommager votre drone. Si vous avez un masque FPV, ajoutez un VTX et une caméra et vous pourrez également jouer en immersion ou vous initier au vol en acro sans avoir peur de crasher. En bref, vous l'aurez compris, ce concept innovant permettra à tout le monde, l'utilisation de son choix et l'évolution permanente en fonction de votre imagination ... Prenez soin de vous et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

So there was delamination in a tire, giving a vote for tapered edges. Only the left tire delaminated, showing it was a problem with the 1st layer in the printing process.

The mane problem was both motors got flaming hot again. This time, the left motor seized up. It's definitely from pulsing the throttle with a heavy payload. They burned 1.5Ah to go 2 miles. If the throttle is constant with a heavy payload, it gets by. The bolts started flying off, despite being impossible to turn by paw. M2.5 bolts are so expensive, it might be easier to replace the entire motor.

It's still nominally burning 350mAh/mile with a payload & softer tires in front. It may be time to upgrade the front tires. Motor seizing happened with the original hard tires.

The next revision of camera electronicals began. It's getting the full frequency hopping 500mW.

Maximum kudos to AlkaM and voodoobrew and learningarduino!
Much thanks!

These are my two cents.

If you want to flash AM32 (firmware open source made bij Alka Motors) on to a wraith32 35A esc v2 for use in a crawler.

My goal: silent outrunner Holmes Hobbies revolver 1800kv in my 4,1kg weighing ZIL-130 rc truck

Voodoobrew has an excellent thread on rccrawler.com with a superb tutorial.

I used an ST link and cube programmer softwwre on an windows 64 laptop.
Remove the alu casing from the st link and check the pin labels.

Power from 3S lipo battery to the ESC while trying to flash the ESC causes an error. At least in my case.
Use the 5V supply from the ST link to the batt terminal.

I found a wraith 1800 kv full bin file on voodoobrew’s page.

When I get my revolver I’ll test it 😀

Here are two skins modified by me, if you Rick can combine them with their respective models, that's fine, as I only changed the graphics on the original files.

so the tiger moth many years ago I built a scale model of it with a OS 120 4 stroke and got fed-up with it in the first week of flying I had then the need for speed it only came out on show days but generally gather dust,
until my daughter found a photo of her 1 year old standing up griping the top wing now she is 30 years old so I dusted it off and took it up again and it is just about the right speed for me now but needed to be bigger as my vision is not that good now and I have change to gas motors as they are easer to run and the fuel is easer to get hold of.

we set out to build a 2.2m wing span tiger moth as light as we could with a 45 to 60 single cylinder gas motor spinning a 24 / 8 prop with materials from local suppliers with the lockdown made it hard to get materials for old suppliers as balsa is becoming harder to get we need to fined a strong than balsa but as light and at a good price not a easy to do but we have mange to come up with good designed flying model that fits are flying stile both being 65 this year so big and slow is what is need now.

the first thing was a good 3 View Drawing of the D82 Tiger of witch i had all of my old drawing info most of it came from my old David Bonnington drawings and pilot press detailed drawings of the D H 82 we have gone for working wing rigging so we can throw it around a bit and it has scale working ruder and elevator controls or you can just fit servos to the back with short control arms.

The lion got dehydrated & was walking by the end. The robot burned 300mAh/mile with 9Ah of batteries & food. Went back to the original idea of a soft starting throttle which goes into auto when it's 100%.

Inductive charging for the paw controller is just as problematic as a JST connector. The mane problem is all 5V phone chargers have protections against a number of conditions. If there's no load for a certain amount of time or if there's a load for too much time, they shut down. You have to use an ATX power supply, a dedicated raspberry pi power supply, or a mean well, which are all too big & expensive.

Breezy Hill's "1/2A Day"

One day of cold, damp air, followed by one with warm, sunny skies, both with plenty (and I mean PLENTY) of engine tinkering, jokes and laughter...and great food served up by President Ronnie.

Nitro was burning and castor oil was slinging as assorted versions of Leroy Cox's tiny engines either screamed or sputtered, or both, with new airframes and old dinosaurs taking to the air.

Allen Bagg had a small fleet of planes, but had some engine problems, and did some "mix and match" with their parts, giving him a hyper-speed combat wing to fly on Sunday.

Leo's typically high performance engines hauled their planes around their circles, with some crazy great stunts by his Medallion .049-powered Ringmaster flying on 60 FOOT LINES!!!!
His Medallion apparently has an identity crisis, and thinks it's a Tee Dee.

Allen also rounded up some prizes, with SIG sending a Mini Zilch kit and two bottles of SIG bond glue, along with Brodak giving dealer cost on a Baby Clown.

Mixed in with this are some balsa and foam gliders which will be given to kids who can attend our little get-togethers.
Thanks to Steven Jany and Alvin Petrowske for their continued great work in keeping Breezy Hill looking so good, and to President Ronnie for feeding us!

Thanks to everyone for the great time!

Here's an album of the weekend...some photos were previously posted, but I wanted to get them all in one lump, and there will probably be others pop...Continue Reading

Monday 19th April 2021 flight history was made! The first aircaft to fly off world!

Ingenuity coaxial helicopter succeded with its maiden flight after days of delay while new flight software was tested and uploaded.

Here to celebrate is Perseverance at Jesero Crater, Mars flying site for PhoenixRC Simulator.

Made from the 360 deg panorama recently taken by Perceverance while it waited for Ingenuity to fulfill her destiny.

I shall post a demo video in due course but to meet the historic day the site is posted with some screen shots for now

In the meantime, here is a video of Ingenuity's first flight on Mars:
