Today my wife had the hard part while I flew the plane. While she was videotaping, a 4 year old came up to her:

Colton: Can I fly that plane?
Mary: Maybe when you're older.
Colton: I'm almost five. Maybe I could trade my RC cars for that airplane. Would you go ask him?
Mary: Well, my husband really likes airplanes. He spent a lot of time building them from little pieces of wood.
Colton: My Dad leaves the cars in a closet and doesn't charge them. They can go really fast! 186 miles an hour! ... How long is he going to keep flying (sigh).
Mary: Well, sometimes ten minutes. He's only been up for five minutes. You can ask him to show you how it works when he lands.
Colton: Will he land soon?

Actually I did land right about then and got to describe how the servos worked. He helped me count out all six rubber bands. He was captivated watching me remove the battery and power down my Tx. His grandmother who had hovered nearby promised to get him a rubber-band balsa stick plane. It's what I started on when I was about his age.

The influence we have is really powerful if we'll see engagements as an opportunity and not a nuisance, especially with a precocious kid like Colton. And it didn't hurt that the grandmother noticed my Jesus fish (Ichthus ) on the wing and read the Fellowship of Christian Modelers logo on my hat.

I finally found a MPX Twist, through the kindness of a good online sloper friend. Thanks, you know who you are!

I have needed a 2M efficient light weight sloper for a while, because I have been flying frequently when conditions are such that only the old school EPP Weasel would stay up. A nice light but agile plane is what I needed, and the Twist should fill the bill, and it comes with, and breaks down into a coroplast travel case. SO AWESOME!
I hope to have an AUW of @ 20oz RTF.

Pics to follow.

Yep, it happened. I built a 48" Moth!
What a different mentality building with EPP is.....

Pics to follow when I have time.

Nemesis No1 ( Navy K 628 Lock Back Knife ) (5 min 14 sec)


This Navy K-628 440c could not hold an edge , no mater how much I massaged the factory bevel .
I could get it shaving sharp , but the edge would vanish within 4 or 5 passes through cardboard ( it became a butter knife )
I seriously thought the knife had rubbish steel for a blade .

That was many , many years ago . The knife has been in a box , and labelled a basket case .
It was time to pull it out and put a known bevel on it ( 22deg @ 180 grit with a 400 grit clean up of the bur )

It has gone from basket case to performer with a change in the angle of the bevel . ( How many of my knives are afflicted with a bad factory bevel ? )

Nemesis No2 will be tested next .

A new filter, maximum load test, & the nozzle actually worked. The blower didn't entirely fit in the nozzle, but going halfway seemed to be enough.

The outlet was left scotched on so if the air comes out too fast, the outlet diameter can be changed. A motorized outlet was deemed unnecessary & would have required upsizing the rest of the nozzle. A bayonet mount for the outlet would have been nice.

The only glitches were the IR getting obstructed by the cables & no protection from the nozzle hitting the wall. The air comes out faster than expected. The bearings & contortions didn't impede the airflow as much as expected, but that's why it's a fighter jet nozzle.

Cable guards installed, hall effect sensors rearranged, & cables farstened. Getting those cable guards to fit around the motor modules & attach to the tubes required some of the gnarliest CAD modeling. A revision would definitely involve screwing them onto the tubes instead of gluing them.


Wrapping the cable in captain tape & hot gluing the captain to the plastic proved to be the best way to farsten it. A 6mm diameter proved to be the narrowest PLA worm size before it crumbled.

The cable guards still aren't perfect. The laminations have to be smoothed. A heavier cable snags less than a skinny wire, so a bundle of captain where the cable meets the cable guard helps.

Has anyone ever tried to take turns off a stock brushed rs540 motor to make it go quicker? Just wondering what would happen 😂 I guess it would up the amps and speed? Anybody?

We all have airframes that have not been flown a while. Maybe it’s outdated, under powered or just isn’t as flashy as the latest and greatest. But flying one from the cockpit perspective can make you giddy like kid again, even with the butterfly in the stomach feeling of learning to fly all over - with Head-tracking high definition FPV.
