Been flying the TAR out of my little GWS pico Tiger Moth and still with the Himax HC2212-1180 Brushless Outrunner without any issue or problems!

A little additional Kv so, I can fly my pico Tiger Moth with just 2-Cells and still have good power while swinging a GWS 8 X 6 prop. Performs it ALL including a loop from level flight and etc....etc.....

Just a super power system!

Okay, for those wondering:

Power System Setup:

Himax HC2212-1180 Brushless Outrunner
Castle Creations ThunderBird 9 AMP Brushless ESC
GWS Std Narrow Servos
Castle Creations BERG 4-Channel Receiver
2-Cell, 1200mAH, Li-POLY <-- This is the largest Battery I use! It usually a 850mAH 2-Cell to keep it really light!
Pilot from ParkZone P-51D Mustang "Frankie"
Wheels, Dubro Lite Foam 1 1/2 inch diameter

Keeps my model really light!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I had my transmitter modified with pressure and vacuum switches that would enable me to use additional channels for flaps, gear or the trainer switch. After a year of trial and error with multiple switch manufacturers and switches that required different amounts of pressure and vacuum to actuate, I've given up on using those types of switches.

The problem with using those switches is moisture from blowing into the tube causes the inner workings to corrode and gum up after multiple uses. I've tried cleaning the switch internals with everything from warm soapy water to hydrogen peroxide to contact cleaner and that works, but only for a short time before they stop working again.

The partial solution I have found is a camera bite switch. $40 for the switch, a few bucks for an RCA jack and a few inches of wire to solder to the "I" switch on my DX9 and I have a simple, reliable way to operate the flaps on my Valiant 1.3 and 84" Turbo Bushmaster. Now to find a switching solution that will allow me to change the switch position without having to bite down the entire time I need to use itÖ

Well, I have definitely progressed since my last entry. I have built two quads, a bunch of Flight Test planes, got FPV going pretty well, and got my two kids and two neighbor kids into flying. Time remains the biggest challenge. Also my oldest son is very active and after about 5 minutes at the flying field he is ready to do something else. Those are a good 5 minutes though. The technology that we have today is amazing and it keeps getting better.

Got bobbles with your throttle? I'm sorry.😞
You can take care of that easily in a few minutes with better FPV throttle control & your own custom throttle curve!
Better altitude control, smoother videos, more fun, free checklist?!? CíMon, letís do this!🤩
Got experience with throttle curves? Let me know what you use 'em for and how they work for you! No experience? Give 'em a try!👍

Both were flying HD FPV to allow smooth close formation. Shoutout to CGReload for hand crafting the awesome scale looking instrument panel!

Been flying my ParkZone Snorting Bull P-47 Thunderbolt for the past two days and visiting my RC Club on the way to work

The model is spectacular and never disappoints plus, it lands dead stick with minimal UP Elevator input. However, I was shocked this morning as I found myself landing with the Flaps with 4 degrees in the UPWARD Position, I mean it performed almost a perfect three point landing with very scale effects!

There was one RC Club member (Milt Farrow) who witnessed the calamity

Anyone landed their P-47 with UPWARD Flaps?

A few pictures!

As of late i have found a new, well not totally new but a new love for me. I like gliders theirs something about them that i love, and i think its the lack of a power system. Totally gliding on air has to be the coolest thing.
Recently i attended a FPV event in Stephenstown, NY the event was NEFPV Feat meet. This year we had close to 75 pilots that showed u for one, two, three and four days for this event. I had converted large chuck glider to rc and it flew awesome! At the event they were passing out little chuck gliders, so i snatched a couple.
I wanted to make something different and i figured something easy not to complexed. So i mad a Groggen look alike out of the chuckie. It's very easy to do and take very little time and efford to convert and you will need basic tools and some aerocell foam strickly for the TE and possibly the vertical fin other than that some small lightweight items such as servos and power system are needed. Being that its small quad gear maybe the easiest to install, as i used 5.6g servos and my power system motor esc only weighed 23.8 grams, and the plane with servos install and cf spar came in at 43.2g .
Some pics of the build and power system just to show you what can be done. I will also add in photos f a swept wing version im working on also. Hope you guys like what can be done with any chuck glider. The blue one is the Baby...Continue Reading
