iFlight Protek25 has 1404 motors and is a strong cinewhoop, but it can fly it without the propeller protection, i.e. as a great freestyle quad.

iFlight Protek25 has 1404 motors and is a strong cinewhoop that can even carry a Gopro8. Optimally fits a GoPro8 Lite on it, which can be converted to the Lite version with the iFlight GoPro8 case.

Stripping down my Kangaroo jet and preparing for a new design paint scheme. It has worn the Hartman scheme for some time but now looking for something more glossy and shiny to look at.

I’m going to use the silver bullet as inspiration.

Wing Assembly of the 92" Black Horse Gilmore Red Lion ARF - Wedell-Williams Model 44 - Roscoe Turner (19 min 10 sec)


Let's glue the ailerons with pin hinges, install the servo, measure the pushrod, and run the servo extension in this first build episode of the 92" Gilmore from Black Horse Models and Motion RC!

"Don Young stood at one end of the field. Harry Williams and Roscoe Turner positioned themselves at the opposite end, a distance of one mile. Their stopwatches were synchronized to clock Jimmie's speed. Near the completion of his pass, something went terribly wrong. Aileron flutter or buzz apparently progressed to wing flutter. This caused the left wing to collapse when its guy wires snapped under the stress. The individually operated ailerons, designed by Jimmie, helped him keep the ship from rolling too fast about its own axis. This delayed the inevitable tumbling of the plane and allowed him time to unfasten his seat belt and bail out." - page 32 - Wedell-Williams Air Service

Complete Walkthrough of the Hitec HFP-30 Servo Programmer (12 min 51 sec)


In depth explanation of the Hitec HFP-30 servo programmer explained and demonstrated for you.

I explain in detail both the servo testing mode and the servo programming mode of the HFP-30 programmer utilizing a Hitec brushless 9831 and one of the newer D-Series D951TW servos. If you're confused on exactly what the sync port does, I'll explain that as well.

Yep Les Amis,
Que de bonnes nouvelles ce jour là !!! J'ai en test depuis quelques jours le nouveau casque Gaming SANS FIL de chez TRONSMART, le SHADOW. Après l'avoir essayé dans différentes configurations, Yacine et moi sommes tombés d'accord. Une belle qualité de finition, de conception, une utilisation simple et rapide, un rendu correct mais pas assez précis dans toutes les gammes de fréquences mais surtout un prix bas pour un casque de ce type qui propose une connexion wifi ! Compatible avec beaucoup de plateformes, le micro amovible est efficace et semble durable. En bref, on aura du mal à trouver mieux dans cette gamme et à ce tarif là, donc, on ne peut que vous le conseiller pour un budget réduit si vous voulez du "sans fil wifi" ... Prenez soin de vous et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

I have a former history in RC but I haven't touched it in like 6 years. I tried to get back into it but never had the place... when I was younger I was in high school/didn't have any responsibilities. Lived by a field, I suppose it's all an excuse.

I switched to software, kinda failed in school, I'm an SWE now on paper. Outside of developing web applications I've been trying to get into the embedded space and robotics. Flying/submarines is still a thing that will factor into it at some point.

Just posting some other stuff I'm working on/worked on.

Eventually if my life doesn't implode my plan is to be like a homesteader somewhere but have access to tech still (Starlink/Amazon). The essentials, nevermind food.

I'm working on it.

The robot I designed/made from scratch, it sucked. Not strong enough/dumb. But it was good as far as learning to program multiple servos moving in Arduino. Also did the ESP to Arduino connection. Not really "radio controlled" but WiFi controlled ha.

The other thing is a SLAM attempt as a response/thing I wanted to address from the robot. Then I would adapt it to a smaller 12-servo true quad with a Teensy onboard. It's not in this image but there is an IMU on there. The idea is you take an image (slow processing as it's single core/not optimized) and find things in there/draw bounds around them as a cube in 3D space. The ToF sensors(2 in image eg. "Lidar" and ultrasonic) determine how far away it is. Then using kinematics to track the robot/vehicle's velocity/accel you can tell how far away you are from things/map them in memory/3Dspace. It sounds easy but it's not haha. I'm not a math wiz and the computer vision aspect alone is pretty difficult but it's a fun project, still not finished.

Banggood.com is having some really good prices right now on some micro planes .

Volantex Sports Cub 500 $70
Eachine Mini F4U $80
E0717 1030mm Wingspan $36

Might be worth a look if you were waiting for a sale .

Here it's windy and a bit wet , really looking forward to trying out the stunt flaps on the Micro Tundra ..
Should be interesting , will it go on it's back ?

Lost my Carl Goldberg Electra in a gust. Hit a tree which sheared off the firewall forward. Then it glided into a nearby tree where it jammed into place 45’ up for four days and through one thunderstorm. .

Footballs thrown at it broke the fin/rudder. 50’ of 1 1/4” PVC jabbing at it just made me tired. What worked to bring it down was a golf ball taped to mason string. An underhanded slingshot throw wrapped around the offending limb. A few minutes of yanking on the limb finally brought her down.

She should be good to go in an hour or two. It’s one of the advantages of being a model-maker!

Been a while since I did any RC!

There was no way I could resist the A60.... but I at least waited a while! It looks so fun. I have actually driven the real thing (ok, the slightly lesser but still gigantic A40) which ranks along my most memorable drives.

This build will use Tamiyas own ESC, the TBLE 02 and,, a pair of Savöx servos to get 4WS. More ball bearings are ordered and of course a light kit is a must. The build is typical Tamiya and it is underway with my 11yo kid as a great help - just the way RC should be.

Big "Thank You" to Metal Massager https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/itrader.php?u=822665 here on RC Groups, offered me a little rough Freewing Eurofighter V2, shipped up from So Cal, I looked at a few pics and decided it wasn't to bad. I had it about a week later, and I have to say, he packed it for shipping with great care. Custom built box, and all parts were well wrapped, just a fantastic job.

One of the issues was a missing canard. I knew he had tried to locate one without success. Took a look at the remaining canard, and knew it could be made from plywood without to much difficulty. I chose 1/4 thickness, to allow for the thickness of the original pivot rod. Plan was to sand them to shape on the leading /trailing edges. After the first one was complete, I made a left also. The plywood was quite a bit thinner that the original foam part. More like the real aircraft.

Did some research on the paint colors, found what I needed easily, and started a few repairs on some hangar rash, and maybe a couple gear up landings.
