The wind was a beast and I'm always surprised how this light plane can handle it so well.

If you've looked at my "Top 10 favorite planes" or my "Seagull Gipsy Moth" threads then you probably know that the DH.60 Gipsy Moth is my favorite aircraft. I've decided to make this my 'winter build' and I'm basically continuing my Seagull Gipsy build thread here (only way I could think of to make it show back up at the bottom of my posts! Made the decision to go with an e-flite Power 90 on 8s so I could use the dummy motor and a sound system and hope to finally wrap this project up! So here goes...

The spruce stringer material arrived a couple of days ago and I got one of the stringers installed (spruce is a bit stiffer than I remembered). When I ordered I also ordered plenty of 1/32nd and 1/16th ply to laser cut the parts for dummy Gipsy II engine top end and also ordered a piece of 1/16th mahogany to cut the instrument panel out of for the rear cockpit (the front cockpit on G-AANL has a shelf instead of a panel) and most of my work the past couple of days has been focused on the panel sizing and lay out. I ordered a 1/5th scale WWI British instrument set and some extra bezels from https://www.iflytailies.com/ and will be using some of them on the DH.60 panel. He has a ton of really nice accessories on the site and is really responsive to inquiries. Here's some shots of the panel development.

The stock wing bolts are too short to hold the wing panels to the front or rear brass threaded inserts. I originally made wing hold down bolts from 3mm Allen head bolts screwed into a dowel. A washer was made from a credit card type plastic with a music wire pin to hold it in place. A nice custom bolt but went to Ace Hardware and bought the 50 mm long 3 mm bolts with a metal washer for my buddies to use. I can use my fingers to hand tighten or a Phillips head driver. See sketch below. See post 619 for picture info.

Tchoo Les Amis,

360°, Circle Mode ... Vomis Mode oui ! Je vous présente aujourd'hui le JJRC H51 Rocket 360. Un petit engin très original qui fonctionne parfaitement bien, l'idée était bonne jusqu'au moment ou un des dévelopeur à eu l'idée "géniale" d'ajouter un mode "toupie" et un mode "Circle Toupie" !!! lol ... 2 fonctions qui, pour moi, ne servent à rien, et surtout au niveau des images que ça donne, un vomitif performant à mon avis . Plus serieusement, mis à part ces deux fonctions inutiles, il fait bien le Taf, tant au niveau pilotage que pour le rendu d'images plutôt correctes pour un engin de cette catégorie et à ce prix . Rien à lui reprocher, pas ouf, mais original et fonctionnel.

N' hésitez pas à laisser en commentaires, vos remarques sur la VIDÉO ou le sujet ... et si vous avez apprécié le montage, le contenu ou le concept ! ... LIKEZ svp.

JJRC H51 Rocket 360 Review Test Démo / C'est bientôt NOËL !!!!! (30 min 8 sec)

NOTATAZ : 17/20 ORIGINAL et PERFORMANT, je valide !

Les + : Stabilité, Modes de vol, Prise en main facile, Images correctes, Pliable, Batterie standard (JST) !
Les - : Des fonctions (360° et Circle) marrantes mais inutiles !

With snow and hard winds, flying is out of the question. Dreams of warm summer days on the slopes seem like just dreams. I decided to prepare a little for those longer excursions where you need more charge, borrow a pack, fix something or whatnot and went on a solder spree....! The picture does not even show it all. I also made a TX charging cable, a custom setup so the kids can safely charge their monster truck NiMH without my help and various automotive adapters among other things.

(Note that the yellow connector adapters are ready-bought items. With those and my cables I should be ready for almost anything!)

This is a pretty nice little drone (same as the JJRC H67) that carries a Santa Lego figure and plays x-mas music such as Jingle Bells very loudly! LOL Overall a very fun little x-mas themed drone that is fun to fly around the Christmas trees or X-mas parties.

The very second the K110 lifted off the ground I had this massive moment of Deija Vu that made me almost lose control of the K110 . Well moments later I hit something in anyway which brought on more Deija Vu . I had this eerie feeling that I had done this before , but how was that possible ? And then it hit me like a brick through a glass plate window ( James Bond ) . I had done this before , with my Super CP . The XK K100 was flying and handling almost exactly the same as my Super CP from (?) almost half a decade ago . ( I failed to break mine )

My initial impression was that the K110 was very mushy around neutral stick ( center ) , rates @ stock were 80% with 20% Expo .. And after lowering rates and lowering expo ( 75% Rates - 5% Expo ) , it was still very mushy feeling around center stick . ( Yes I bounced the K110 off a few things in the very limited space I was hovering in ) . I gave up and just switched to 100% rates and no Expo .. Much better ! The problem with mushy controls is that the K110 is very lively and once it starts to move you really want to stay on top of it or else it will bounce off something before you get a chance to do anything .

In no way shape would I say the K110 is noob friendly , not even as a second model . In 6 axis mode it is capable of covering a lot of ground in one second and unless you are heli familiar you just might keep the spare parts sellers in business . Now there are a few things I don't care for in 6...Continue Reading
