Both wings are finished and they have a 3° dihedral. I’m concerned about the wheel alignment. One seems a half inch ahead of the other. Wingspan is 57”.

Installed are four Hitech 425 Servos, four control rods and horns, landing gear, wheel pants of sorts with the insides painted flat zinc chromate, and wheels with hubs.

Slope flies in the Vosges 2019.
This year a licence was needed for France and every model over 800g has to be registered. This can be done for free at Fox Alphatango. The questions are practically only about drones. This is also controlled by the gendarmerie. The weather was good. The wind came from the right direction and blew accordingly strong.

Bob S. picked this EF 78" Extra up used last year and he finally got out for a night of flying. Based on my personal experience and watching others, kids sports is the #1 killer of hobbies. I am glad my kids are mostly past that phase and my youngest comes out with me of flying nights with his own planes.

I think it would be helpful if R/C Group's "classified section" had a filter where we could view only the products for sale in a particular state. I don't see a way to do that now unless I'm missing something.

Basing on the APM open source, RadioLink flight controller Mini Pix is developed with software algorithm of damping vibration and the hardware redesigned to achieve “Alt-hold at super low height” and “Stable flight at super high speed” so that Mini Pix is applicable to various of models including heli/fixed wing/multirotors/cars/boats and different fields such as transportation, agriculture, etc. As more and more overseas users have positive feedback about Mini Pix, the APM team approached us and we have provided them our hardware circuit and files in June, 2017. The APM team has developed the open source firmware basing on RadioLink Mini Pix hardware for the Mini Pix users.

Links about RadioLink Engineer RadiolinkW submitting Mini Pix files
https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupil...s_QMC5883L.cpp
https://github.com/ArduPilot/ardupil...aro_LPS2XH.cpp


To flash firmware

If the RadioLink Mini Pix is used for development, it is advised to flash the APM open source firmware version 3.6.0 or above. If used for RC fun/building models, choose RadioLink firmware version downloaded in RadioLink Mission Planner. Comparing with the open source firmware, firmware developed by RadioLink has better stability with the software filter algorithm added.


A. Flash Open Source Firmware
Click to flash the firmware in the open source Mission Planner downloaded via:
http://firmware.ardupilot.org/Tools/...ner-latest.msi
B.Flash RadioLink Firmware
Click to flash the firmware in the Mission Planner specially developed by RadioLink downloaded via:
http://www.radiolink.com.cn/firmware...ner-latest.exe


All interface protocals of RadioLink Mini Pix are the same as the open source pix. Therefore, the parameter setup and usage are same as the open source pix.
