DustOff #6 - HK FW190 WarBird Kit - Too much Wind & Crash!



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amGcJVSR8-M

Well, I certainly debated with myself whether or not to launch this plane.
I's pretty draggy and has a large profile for the wind to push.
The wind was 5-8mph on the ground and felt like 10-15mph approx. 30 feet in the air.
Plus, the wind was 90 degrees to my runway ;-)
This is one of those days where I should have packed up and gone home.
Needless to say I didn't pack up but I did crash.
If I didn't fly in significant wind I wouldn't be flying much at all where I live, so I'm marginal often in the wind ;-)

This Kit is discontinued but they still have the F6F Hellcat ;-)

Here is a link to the kit:

Test Flight #2 - Ranger G2 with 8X4 Prop - Loops & Rolls ;-)



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzJ9R8klxuo

After performing the Motor Thrust Angle MOD on the Ranger G2 it gave me space for an 8x4 Prop.
I removed the stock 7x5 Prop to conduct some Test Flights with and 8x4 Prop.
This should produce significantly more thrust than the stock 7x5 Prop.
I have increase the Elevator Dual-Rate since the 1st Test Flight as it didn't seem to have quite enough elevator authority.
Let's see if that helps.
I also wanted to see how the Roll Rate is on this large plane ;-)
So let's go do some Rolls and Loops ;-)

Review - Faster more Accurate Cuts with the Foam Werks Straight & Bevel Cutting Tool



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVyYN_BK1rs

This tool is courtesy of Logan Graphics / Foam Werks.
I have been looking at these tool for quite some time as I have seen then in Hobby Lobby.
I always wondered if this tool would no only make my cuts more accurate but would also save me time.
This is the very first time I have used this tool and just using this tool during the demonstration I can tell it will save me time and make the cuts more accurate.

Here is a Link to the Logan Graphics / Foam Werks Website:

Review - Tattu R-Line 4S 1050mah 95C LIPO



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZpJpL22QR4

The dimension and weight were spot on with the specs ;-)
I ordered (3) of these LIPOs and (1) had a dead cell ;-(
We will see how these perform and also how good their customer support is in getting this bad LIPO replaced.
I will post an update to this review with experience using their customer support ;-)
Stay tuned for that and field testing of these LIPOs in our "Glue & Fly" Series F-22 Mini V3!

Here is a link to this LIPO:

RC Tip #24 - Servo Setup & Centering - Get that Servo perfectly Centered



Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbfIs5O999E

I was always frustrated by the fact that most of the servos I have purchased always have the control arm Off Center.
No matter how you attach the control arm with the servo in the neutral position the arm is always angled in one direction or another.
So how do you fix this?
Let's see......
