This is my Durafly Brewster F2A Buffalo 920mm PNF RC Warbird third flight video. As you can see, I am very comfortable with it after only the third flight with this compact 3S WW2 Warbird.

Durafly Brewster F2A Buffalo 920mm PNF RC Warbird Third Flight (6 min 38 sec)

If you look closely, you can see snow on the ground as this was recorded months ago.

Wings for my P-51B were done or so I thought. I placed them side by side and saw that the left wing struts were 3/8” taller than those on the right side.

I’m building this warbird from plans, so I got lots of counsel on ways to even up the fixed landing gear:
:: make a smaller wheel for that side
:: tear out the gear and do it again
:: bend the strut wires forward and backward
:: just be prepared to hit the rudder when landing
:: buy retracts and install those
...and my least favorite:
:: throw away the whole wing half and make another one.

Now, which strut to fix—long one or short one? Someone said these planes are notorious for tip overs and you want the LG as far forward as possible. Check. Fix the short one.

I decided to tear out the landing gear, bend the 1/8” galvanized wire straight, then elbow 3/8” in a new place, and re-install.

Here’s a few hitches that I encountered:
:: I was out of 1/8” wire, so I had to stay with the short one.
:: everything shattered. It came out in pieces. I was able to glue the rib. Thankfully, I did have some bass 1/16” sheet.
:: the LG strut wire inside the plane was now 1/4” short of the basswood doubler. I had to make a shelf on which it could sit.

The fix went well. I had to make new basswood braces, add a new basswood panel, epoxy in the supports, and re-sheet 1/16” balsa.

My XIRO Xplorer connects, all lights good, but when I pull down to start the motors they won’t start. Nothing, not even a twitch.
Anyone have experience with this issue?

Yep Les Amis,
Mes neurones en ont pris un coup ! lol . J'ai en test aujourd'hui le SG-906 BEAST de chez ZLRC. Le moins qu'on puisse dire c'est que les options de contrôle ne manquent pas . Par contre la mise en oeuvre de ces différentes options est un peu complexe selon moi, un coup il faut couper la radio, un coup il faut démarrer rapidement pour être en mode 1 (visual positionning) , un coup il faut enlever l'anti-shake , etc ... En bref, je pense que l'innovation est sympa et assez fiable mais elle mériterais d'être simplifiée avec, par exemple, un bouton pour passer du mode 1 au mode 2 et un bouton pour activer ou désactiver l'anti-shake. En bref, je suis assez satisfait dans l'ensemble car ce qui est annoncé fonctionne mais un peu déçu par la qualité des images même si ce jour la , le vent n'a pas vraiment aidé je vous l'accorde. Bon film à tous ...

ZLRC SG-906 beast - Review Test Démo - Pas mal ... Mais pas simple ! (37 min 46 sec)


NOTATAZ : 16/20 Y a du taf pour tout capter !!! lol

Niveau : Débutants et Confirmés
Les + : Puissant et Souple, Réactif, Précis, Très bonne autonomie, Bonne portée radio et vidéo, Nombreux modes de vol, Photos correctes...
Les - : Modes de vol un peu complexes à utiliser, Pas mal de jello sur la vidéo, résolution moyenne (à voir avec moins de vent )...

it seems that many people are talking about cinewhoop,and many factories in China are producing cinewhoop FPV Drones
but what cinewhoop means ?
As far as I am concerned,cinewhoop is a frame kit that can carry a Camera like GoPro Hero 7
like these drones ?

During the peak winter month of February I decided to put a boat model together. I wanted to build it on a counter in my living room to take a break from the daily garage shop routine of repairing and retro fitting RC planes for awhile. Being a small model I could keep my work isolated to a small area. This thread here was just going to be a short time build originally just to make a display example of a general post war tugboat example. I am not concerned about making the exact tugboat Despatch N.S.

So a bell went off while I was priming the parts and looking over the instructions, The house structure ends up in one piece and fits to the deck snug over a coaming. Hmmn!! I think I can actually find room in here to make a display model and a second life as an RC watercraft. Today's electronics are so advanced. They are small and used in cars and toys along with indoor aircraft that we fly in schools and halls during the winter. I always had interest in boats. I built my first wood Comet kit sloop in 1954 at 10yoa. I have experienced 22 years of service on tugboat and other commercial oil movement vessels. I also gained an extensive USCG license some years ago before I left.. I spent 25 years on my own sail vessels and power operation also with my family. The experience also helps my modeling abilities. I still have my Exxon Empire State hat and Manager jacket here in this recent photo. 32 plus years later.

At long last, the Beaver kits are on the water, arriving early August!

The website is now live at: https://www.moustachemodelworks.com/

We have turned on ordering for the kit itself so that folks can backorder now that we have a definite delivery time frame. There are no special deals for backordering, just that we'll send out your kit as soon as the stock arrives.

Thanks for hanging with us through this looooooong process!

FLEXRC COLUGO! Today we build out one of the (I not, THE) most versatile 3 inch Freestyle Micro FPV Quadcopter Frames currently on the market, the FlexRC Colugo! For those of you not familiar with the term “Colugo” it is also known as a Flying Lemur. These small, furry, tree-dwelling mammals have a webbed membrane which stretches from its face to its toes to its tail enabling it to glide over 200 feet between trees! Build one of these Micro FPV 3 inch Quadcopters yourself and find out how easy and fun it is to hit some of those tree gaps! Are you ready to "Colugo?!?"

Despite representation and links to the offending - I am still penalised even though I am the victim.

I also seem to have had my Blog altered !!
