Hi gang, Currently building a 50% Bucker Jungmeister from J.W out of Germany, Been tied up with other things lately but the build has taken priority once again! Yay! So, I just thought I would share some more photo's. I am currently working on the upper center cabane now. These pictures show more shots and some of the details and my (bucket seat) It also functions like the original . Please, let me know what you think so far, After all Its you folks I have been leaning from since I've started building and for this I am deeply gratefull! Oh, I almost forgot There is another gentleman in my state doing the same build at this time I am unable to contact him on another sight That sight does'nt seem to let me communicate though I am a member ( maybe Its my old computer ) Don't know why. If anyone can help me with this Thanks! and IOU!...Continue Reading

When this missus and I announced our engagement, my late grandfather-in-law for whom talking was a struggle approached me and said, "Do not take unnecessary risks." While that may strike you as about as meaningful as any random fortune cookie, what I believe the old man meant was that I must never attempt to resuscitate dead lipos.

Perhaps you've even tried it a few times and succeeded without anything blowing up, no 911 calls. Perhaps you've taken precautions, maybe you had a jug of water beneath the battery and a fire extinguisher ready to rip. You even ordered some "resistor" thing that might help.

I imagine most of those who've tried know there's a good chance you'll bring the little fella back above 3.5V / cell without burning down the house and that, while the voltage will fall way off 4.2V as soon as you unplug it and the thing will have half its original life in the air with major voltage sag, but it's a good pack to have on hand in the hangar when you need to power up a servo tester. Or so we tell ourselves.

Buddy, I know this firsthand: When lipos self-immolate, they are angry, they are damn hot, they're spitting out flame. Maybe they're squirting out flaming acid, who knows what the hell they're doing. Meanwhile, that confidence in your contingency plans turns to panic as you try to hurl the thing out of your basement where it burns a grey scar on the asphalt and leaves your house stinking for days -- if you're lucky, something much worse could happen instead. But you won't have to smell the house as your wife will lock you in the doghouse forever, you'll never stop hearing about it. She'll tell your in-laws too.

You think I sound like I've resuscitated-and-regretted, I'm giving a little too much detail? No I haven't actually; I'm just an amazing writer. :)

Once lipos dip below 3V / cell, or, you know, all the way down to zero volts, they're compromised. Fifteen, thirty bucks, whatever, paying that figure again is worth extinguishing this elevated and unnecessary risk.

another archive from my old website, great day. FPV on Mt. Hood in 2011

I have always wanted to fly on Mt. Hood ever since I got into FPV, and with my new Custom Widebody Stryker proving to be a great platform for the GoPro HD camera I headed up to the mountain with my Wife on a clear windless winter day. This Stryker was cut in half and widened 5 inches to make room for equipment and carry the GoPro. I am using an Eagle Tree OSD Pro, an FY-20 stability device, a 300 mw 1.28 gHz video transmitter with a V antenna built into the vertical stabilizer, and a 72 mHz PCM receiver. My motor of choice is a Mega 16/15/7 for its efficiency, and I’m spinning an 8×6 propeller. The max current draw is 19 amps at sea level with this setup, but I was under-propped on the mountain and could only draw 15 amps. I would go to a 9×6 if I fly on the mountain again. Everything on the Airplane is powered by a single 2200 mAh 3 cell Lipo, and I’ve built a power filter and 5v regulator system to power the video transmitter and GoPro. My ground station uses an Eagle Eyes system for diversity from two cheap “12 channel” receivers with stock DiPole antennas, and I’m flying with a hacked pair of Trimersion goggles. My Transmitter is 72mHz. Somehow I managed to even cross my landing marks in the snow with nearly identical landings. A special thank you to my Wife Dustine for helping me make this day possible and taking pictures. Sit Back and enjoy the ride! (Please forgive the half finished covering, I couldn’t pass up the chance to fly in this weather!)

Another waybackmachine archive, this one kind of painful from 2009- trying to keep the hobby shop going as an online info resource...

We thought we’d include you in the latest things going on around here at Baron’s Hobbies. If you’ve been following us from the start you’ve seen our transition from an RC hobby supplier to an information source. Well, we’re not through changing yet and for the better. For us to really help bring the sort of information you’re interested in, we’d love to hear your requests or questions you may have for our expert staff. If you are an RC aviation enthusiast we are looking for people interested in contributing their stories and experiences.

Looking For Reader Feedback

As you may have seen we’re not fair weather flyers and the snow is not going to stop us from getting out there and enjoying the skies. We’d love to hear about what others do in the off season and the die-hards that get out there in rain or snow. Tell us about how you cope with the off season. Do you fly in the rain, snow and cold?

Stay tuned here to Baron’s Hobbies for upcoming improvements. In the coming weeks we will be covering the AMA convention in Ontario, California, and doing several interviews with well known pilots. In addition, we are excitied to be introducing a highly skilled modeler to our readers as a new contributing author. For automatic updates on our latest articles, please click on the RSS feed in the upper right corner of the page and subscribe.

I dug this up from my old website- long gone but I found it on the waybackmachine -this one from 2009

This second installment will cover my middle school and high school years, ending with my graduation from high school at the turn of the century. When I left off in the first part, I was writing about my trusty Gentle Lady glider. Shortly after starting middle school, my Gentle Lady met its fate when the radio was shut off in flight while flying at Mary S. Young State park. I had the switch mounted on the hatch, just below the propeller for the pod-mounted .049. My little Cox engine had the really old sping starter which hooked around the prop, newer versions used a plastic cam, but mine actually grabbed the prop itself. I had so many flights on it the spring cut through the prop, and the loose blade hit the switch, damaging it and shutting off power to the glider in the middle of a nose down turn. My Gentle Lady hit the ground and just crumpled after all the repairs I had done.

Stepping Up

Early in middle school I received another model from my cousin Leon, scratch built from a pull out plan construction article in Model Airplane News. The low wing Be-Tween (plan number X07912, still available from Model Airplane News!) was typical of Leon’s builds. It was built straight, strong, and lightweight, and I felt mine was even better looking than the one in the magazine! Although the Be-Tween was a great little plane, it wasn’t until a year later when he sent me a...Continue Reading

I dug this up from my old website- long gone but I found it on the waybackmachine

Wednesday June 25, 2008 West Linn, Oregon- Welcome to Baron’s Hobbies. This is Aaron Shell’s autobiography, Aaron is the publisher of Baron’s Hobbies. Baron’s Hobbies is the culmination of a lifelong pursuit of all things that fly by radio control. Watch for posts in the Aaron’s Biography category for the next chapter in my diverse exposure to the world of RC. Let me take this opportunity to introduce myself and tell my story. This first chapter covers the time I was 5 -12 years old.

MY STORY

Aviation triggered something inside me at a very early age. My first word may well have been “airplane,” and most of my firsts indicated I had flying on the brain. My first lego models, drawings and stories written in grade school, were all about airplanes. I have been a participant in the fascinating world of radio control flying since I was in the second grade. Sitting on my cousin Leon’s knee during a family event when I was about 5 years old, he told me stories of radio control gliders circling in bubbles of warm air and climbing without power with the birds. Images of those majestic lumbering floaters traversed across my minds eye and continue to drift across my sub-conscience to this day.

I began flying when Leon sent me an electric Cox EZ Bee Trainer in 1988. The model was actually pretty advanced for its day; with a foam airframe, a polyhedral glider type wing, a geared electric motor...Continue Reading

I ordered my tx from Brian (owner of Phils Hobby shop) in St Pete in Dec 2017. On Fri Jan 19 they called me and I picked her up for a cost of $586 including tax (just a charge cable, no case or receiver). Horizon’s online cost was $599.

Charge was about 50% so I charged it overnight and on Sat she was 99% charged. Orange raindrops (Boot up indication) took about 2 minutes then black screen then the Spektrum Airware took about 10 seconds.

Under System Settings I went to Product Information and pressed the REGISTER TRANSMITTER block. I filled out all the info using my old account user name and password. I received a confirmation that the TX was registered. It took a few days before I was able to see the radio on the My Spektrum site along with all the past transmitters that are registered.

I called up Horizon Tech Used the TX to update with the help of phone tech support. I asked for the Brittish voice and the talked me thru downloading and installing the software. I chose the female Brittish English and its a little better than the DX9 Brittish female English. Tech talked me thru updating the apps and there was no problem. I lost 1 test model so learned to back up models into hard drive or SD card before doing updates. (Although on 1/30/18 I did not lose my test AT6 model after a new Airware update!
Had trouble setting the local clock but finally figured it out. Emailed pics of Lonnies AT6 Texan and picked this from “Gallery”

On 1/29 from reading RCGroups I...Continue Reading

Two of the best years of my life were poured into RC Heli Magazine’s early years; I spent 2006 to 2008 living in southern California working as the Editor of RC Heli Magazine. After moving back to Oregon in 2008 I wrote a few articles a month for them as a contributing author. Unfortunately the Magazine is no more, it was decided to shut it down for good at the end of November 2011. I greatly value the friends and experiences I gained from working at the magazine. One of the pinnacles of my career was interviewing Chuck Aaron for the magazine and going for a ride in the Red Bull BO 105. While the magazine had its ups and downs, I’m proud of the work I completed for the magazine, and I will miss being a part of the RC Heli Magazine team.
