I spent last evening with my monokote iron working on the tail group of the DAW 1-26 and DAW P-51 Mustang
Its so relaxing to lay some covering down and see projects nearing completion
The 1-26 needs to have the control snakes installed ,plastic covers added over the tops of the servos and then the fuse can be covered .

The Mustang fuse is ready for some 3M- 77, stapping tape and then covering .
I am using the HK covering on both planes ,it is nice to work with

V-Coptr Falcon Drone | Snap Poll (3 min 10 sec)


The V-Coptr Falcon two-rotor drone by Zero Zero Robotics is probably one of the most polarizing yet highly anticipated drone offerings that I have seen. Some folks proclaimed, "scam" when the drone was first announced. This may in part be due to the delays Zero Zero Robotics had in developing and releasing the Hover 2. I also think the declaration of 50-minutes of flight time raised suspicions. With only two motors to power, could it actually be possible?

INTRODUCTION

I have been flying helis and quads for about 10 years, and also posted a lot of reviews during that time. I also have a few ground vehicles and have even reviewed a couple of those. But the only planes I ever tried were more than 10 years ago before I started helis and quads, and I had little successs with them. Then the first week of November 2019, I got an airplane, the XK A430, then the A600, then a Volantex 767-2, then an OMPHobby T720. So I have only been flying planes for about 2.5 months. I still consider myself to be mostly a beginner at planes, but I have progressed to aerobatic flight, at least doing loops and rolls, mostly with the T720. All without a club, an instructor, or a similator program.

I like the planes I have with mid mounted motors and pusher props, I like the planes I have that are good gliders, and the plane made of EPO foam has proven to be very durable. So when I came accross the Hobby Zone Aeroscout S 1100 it peaked my interest. A beginner plane made of EPO, decent size, steerable nose wheel, 3 flight modes, capable of aerobatics, a possibility of taking off and landing on rough surfaces or grass, a pusher prop, and possibly decent flight times. But I had always avoided Horizon Hobby and their seemingly expensive products. So I read all that I could find about the Aeroscout, it really seems like there is not that much, and I was left with questions I could not find the answers to. It took me a couple of weeks to make up...Continue Reading

I'm a retired Commercial Pilot/Controller who's been flying RC since 1966. Now I fly Giant Scale Twins on a HORUS x12s, OpenTX v2.3.4, no flight controller, just a stabilizer for approaches in windy weather, and about 24 pieces of telemetry that will help keep me “In the Envelope”, should I loose a power plant.

I was also a Database Engineer, using Visual C & Visual Basic GUI's for a couple of decades, 30 years ago, but don't have the time to re-educate myself in new Script syntax.

I would like my telemetry on a Window's Tablet/Computer screen so my co-pilot can keep me on the numbers. But if I can get the screens to display what I want by pressing the Telemetry button and PgUp, PgDn buttons, I'll be happy. If you can help, please contact me at [email protected]

The Airframe is complete except for the Decals on the Foam Panel edges ;-)
I just have the Motors inserted into the Nacelles so the Nose doesn't lift up.
The Controls Horns are installed as well and the Wheels are secured on the Struts.
I'm just waiting for the glue to completely cure and then it will be time to install the Electronics.

See you in the Air!

Brushed 450x Wing update (1 min 57 sec)


Right !!! Lets see ..

Soldered on a battery lead and a motor lead / plug for the hot little brushed 8520 .
Motor seems to run ok , servos look to work ..

This Rx / ESC combo might be sweet for that micro brushed project .

Next I need some control rods and then maybe I can go fly ?

i spent the month of May flying the crap out of my T-Rex 500X and my FireStorm. i started thinking about a larger F3A model and started doing some research. i made the mistake of calling Coyote Hobbies and Russ said he had a 2m Vanquish on consignment that only needed a speed control. Well, the next day it was on my bench getting the Talon 120 from my Raven installed in it.

This is the most honest plane i've ever owned. The Himaxx swings a 21x14 V2 Falcon prop.

i made some of my best landings ever with this plane. That's a good thing since the gear plate material is notoriously weak as was told to me by another Vanquish owner that just happened to start coming to our field the week before i bought it. (the front/back edges of the gear rocking back and forth cuts the material) so i laid in a 1.5mm carbon plate to help spread out the load of the landing gear.

i'm running a SmartFly Batt Share which pulls from a 2s LiFe pack as primary, and fails back to the Talon 120 BEC if the battery goes flat. Telemetry will warn me if a switchover occurs.

i got the bug for a small pattern plane and ran across the FMS F3A Explorer. It was OK, but a little too high of wing loading for what i wanted. i liked the concept however, and found Mountain Models FireStorm.

It took about 2 months to complete in between other projects. What a FANTASTIC flying machine. I lightened up the structure where i could and covered it with some SoLite from my stash. Having used them in my DLGs, i put MKS 75k servos in it, along with a Leopard 3536 running on 3s 2200s. 7 minutes of F3A flying and wing loading is under 11oz/sq ft! Static thrust to weight ratio is >2:1. What a FANTASTIC flying model. It flies much bigger than its size. It slow rolls beautifully, and lands like a feather. It also tolerates wind much better than i anticipated, which is good because our field in the summer has a nearly constant stiff breeze in the evening.

Pictures at the field were on the Maiden Day, and i had left the cowl off prior to settling on the incidence for the motor. i'll have to make some time to finish trimming it, it's definitely a keeper.

Maiden flight was 4/23/19
