An idea of the direction i'll be taking this music video.

The Jet just needs a coat of paint.

Hands up who didn't notice the Jet in the background

Well obviously Pilot Gwen didn't as she has both hands up. Much to our delight

Messing around with hair animations so she needs a stylist at the moment

I was never a fan of the stock green Eflite scheme, so my first impulse was to customize my UMX F-27 Evolution with the color scheme of my choice.. Black!

Eflite UMX F-27 Evolution Flight w/ Custom Black Trim Scheme (4 min 50 sec)

I carefully peeled the stock stickers off, applied them to an old decal backing sheet that I kept from a previous project. I then applied two spray coats of Krylon Supermaxx Black, allowed it to dry, and then reapplied them with Elmer’s Crystal Glue, using an epoxy brush.

Aside from the custom “Black” scheme, Dubro 1.25” Nose Skid and Small Parts CNC Aluminum UMX Prop Adapter, all of the internals are stock. Powered with an Eflite 3S 300mAh 30C Lipo (27 grams), placed as far back in the battery compartment for an aft-most CG.

Thanks Brad for catching the flight footage!

Thanks for watching!!

Hi Guys,
I have been flying RC for a long time, lately I got really into free flight and I'm new and willing to learn. Where can I buy the system to wind the rubber band outside the plane? I'm flying old timers 30-40" WS Thanks for the advise.

Black Friday

Almost 20 items in the limbo called MAIL !
Where's my stuff !!!!

Purchased my Christmas ( Xmas to some ) presents to myself ( who better to chose something to buy ) ..
Yes , was not after shirts or socks or any other nick naks ! No it had to be RC related ...
Folks at Banggood had a recent sale and a certain 4ch Cub was on sale and I got it for the same $$ as a WL toys F959
One can only hope it gets here for Dec 24 ( Last day for some snail mail ) .

A BIG THANK YOU to anyone and everyone that used my Affiliate links to buy stuff , earning me some BG points .
When you buy a lot of stuff ( I cant help it ) , every point helps .

Hmmm , Black Friday !

Do I window shop or blow some dust off my wallet ? ( Wait ) Didn'y I just spend money ? I'm a bad boy !
I have a Bee 490 staring at me

Still Ho humming over it's stuffing ..
I just might have to do a F959 flight pack onto it ( Control board / motor / folding prop )
Also that 450x with the F949 control board , needs work - Roll rate is way soft . Control horns might need new holes ..

The GFS F-22 Nano Airframe is nearly complete ;-)
It's starting to look like a Parkjet.
The estimated weight of the Airframe is 6.8 grams.
The estimated AUW is 27 grams!
I have a motor and prop combination that provide 37.2 grams of thrust on a 1S LIPO ;-)

Time to get back to work....

See you in the Air!

The line drawings have been digitized and reviewed. I entered the drawings into Auto-Cad where I calculated the CLP (center of lateral Plane) in order to
design a balanced set of sails using the relationship between the CE (center of effort)of the sails. According to some design theories, there the CE should be forward of the CLP by approx. 15% of the DWL (designed water line. It will be interesting to see if I notice any positive effects. I have 3 other J's to compare performance to but seeing that they are all shorter, it will be an educational exercise at best, at least for now.
When Rick Shousha finishes the bulkheads, I'll start my build blog.Just what I need.....a 4th J. Anyone want a good deal on a Rainbow or Endeavour?

I'm not done testing, but as far as ZTW vs Generic ESCs, this test showed me enough to switch out my generics for ZTW.

This Might be the Best ESC (13 min 47 sec)

Not sure if any of you know but in the 3D space, there are literally trillions of settings so comes a time when you have to say................... that's it.

Must admit i'm pretty happy with this and it only took 56 minutes to render 1 frame. So I estimate that the video at 25 frames per second i'm looking at around a day of rendering for 1 second of video. 60 days per minute and my songs are around 3.30 minutes so ............... 210 days for a 3.30 minute video. Best i invest in electricity stocks

Pilot Gwen does look pretty good though. will also be adding my Pipistrel Panthera Plane i built for the Phoenix Simulator as well so that will blow the 210 days out no doubt lol.

Please if anyone can give me some hints with some quicker rendering with Daz Studio and iRay, please let me know if i can knock a couple of days of this adventure

UAV tilt photography technology can truly reflect the situation of the ground, and through advanced positioning technology, it can embed accurate geographic information and pick up richer image information. The birth of oblique photography technology may subvert the traditional surveying and mapping operation method.

For many years, the topographical mapping and geographic information acquisition work have mainly adopted manual operation mode, measuring and mapping people's footsteps, traversing mountains and rivers, year-round field trips, and hard work. Such field labor has problems such as high intensity, complicated procedures, time-consuming and high cost. With the development of science and technology, the surveying and mapping industry has become increasingly demanding for the accuracy and timeliness of geographic information data. Labor and time costs have also brought tremendous pressure and burden on the industry. Therefore, the surveying and mapping industry need to be able to quickly and efficiently, Accurate solutions for obtaining geographic information and data.

The birth of UAV tilt photography technology has overturned the traditional surveying and mapping operation method. This technology acquires high-definition stereoscopic image data through low-altitude multi-lens photography of drones, automatically generates three-dimensional geographic information models, and quickly realizes the acquisition of geographic information. Features such as high...Continue Reading

Getting there on a more realistic lighting. Her skin is looking more real. 80% rendering time in 13 minutes for 1 frame.

"Are we there yet?" .......... not quite! I want the skin on the face to look as real as the right hand.

In my opinion this is what all pilots should wear.

Correction!

Female pilots, I don't look good in red I would certainly fly business class a lot more

I notice that people are looking but no one's commenting. Great to get some feedback.

I've spent the last couple of weeks reviewing the new ISDT 608AC charger. It has a modular removable AC-DC power supply and the high quality build and interface that we've come to expect from ISDT across their full line. At $50-60 it is easliy the best value charger out and will suit practically every application out except for the very high currents (8A+) and multiple channels.

Anyway, my full review is here including heaps of pics of the operating screens which I find easier to lear by than the included manual:

Testing the Caddx Baby Turtle on my Larva-X toothpick. HD recording is pretty good, FPV feed - recorded with the DVR in my Fatshark Attitude V5 - is subpar.

Geelang Anger 75x - 4S Tiny whoop! (20 min 34 sec)


ANGER 75X whoop 3-4S
Specification
Wheelbase:75mm
Size:106mm * 98mm * 53mm
Weight:46g (without battery)
Weight:76g(with Original 4s 260mah Lipo battery)
Motor:GL1202 KV6900
Flight controller:SI-F4FC Three-in-one tower Version: MATEKF411
Power supply: 2-4S battery input (DC 7-17V)
Built-in 12A(each) Blheli_S 4in1 ESC Dshot600 ready
Built-in Betaflight OSD(SPI Control)

The props are 1636 Gemfan and the frame doesn't permit the use of 2 inch prop.

Anyway with 4S lipo it's a very fast Whoop and you can fly like a bigger models without limitations we are used to have on tiny Whoop. All acro maneuvers are possible with its motors.

Flight time (I set 3.5v as limit) is more or less 4 minutes.

With 3s you have less power, obviously, but you can benefit from its tiny size to have fun in very small space!

In the video you'll see some propwash in fast descent but I augmented a little the I value and the result is very good.

I will post some tuning video if it will be interesting for you.
