A few years back I decided to build another Trainermaster but this time electrified.
Here's some pictures.
I couldn't find a set of plans but I had a box of ribs so I decided to make it by memory. It helps that I used to work for the company.
E Flite 25 4 cell pack and Spektrum equipment and it flies great.
More power than any of my old ones.

I just finished building the BeeRotor x200, which is an awesome little racing quad from RCTimer. At just under $250 this is a killer machine at a killer price!

You can read the full guide here: https://nathan.vertile.com/blog/2016...tup-and-review

It weights a bit over 300g and has about a 10:1 power to weight ratio.

Contained in this guide is a FrSKY X4R-SB receiver setup guide: https://nathan.vertile.com/blog/2016...view/#receiver

Among other things, I cover VTX and OSD wiring and configuration: https://nathan.vertile.com/blog/2016...-review/#video

Have been back to work on the '49 Chris racing runabout. Also beginning to assess how to progress with the build of the Buddy Davis hull. Given the flair in the bow and therefore no pronounced gunnel installation of the deck beams is the first challenge.

Had a great weekend for RC.

On Saturday, I went to the park before my wife and daughter woke up for some Green Dog and Versus goodness. I hadn't fully secured the new vertical tail on the Versus so I could still do some manual trimming if needed. Turns out that it was a good thing as the tail came off, rather than snap in half. Darned long grass.

Later on, my daughter wanted to go to the park, so off we went. I got a few tosses on the mini-ELF and the Green Dog, but the weather was turning.

Sunday morning everything was wet from rain during the night, so I opted to save my shoes and socks from getting soaked. The clouds were clearing so I figured I'd get out in the afternoon after things dried up a bit.

Instead, we decided to go up to Barnes Lake for a picnic lunch. I'm glad I've got 4 chargers now, so it wasn't a problem getting all the packs I wanted charged in time.

I packed up the Aquaholic, Mini Trooper, Monsoon and Feiyu Tech FT009 (brushless). I meant to take the Swamp Dawg, but somehow forgot it.

We borrowed the in-laws canoe for the summer and strapped that to the roof as well. Off we went to the lake.

First thing was lunch. We tried out the new Coleman camp stove we bought for our summer excursions. I had expected it to be like pretty much every other camp stove I've seen--a circle of blue flame around the burner. But, there were no flames at all, just heat--weird.

After lunch, we decided to try out the canoe. It's a RAM-X...Continue Reading

a child asked his grampa: what is better: to be a dreamer, or to be a realistic?
and the grampa answered: well, could be that you can be both:
giants walk with their heads in the clouds, and their feet on the ground.
so, you can be a giant. it is up to you.

Description:

This year I attended the Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome Museum & History of Flight Air Show held in Red Hook / Rhinebeck, New York, USA.

The Old Rhinebeck Museum has one of the largest collections of early aeroplanes in the world, as well as automobiles, motorcycles, early engines and memorabilia spanning the period from 1900-1939. The air show run every weekend June through October, weather permitting.

Too many photos for one blog, so I decided to make it a 2 part:
Part I Museum Motorcycles, cars, engines & planes
Part II Air Show & cars

Before you see the pictures, see if you can answer this question
The Wright Brothers did not invent flight, so what did they invent?
The answer is in the last group of photos

Time for an update on the Guppy glider.

Wings now ready for covering which I might start in the weekend.
All RC gear is in and plane balances really good. Just move the battery around.

I just received the 3DHS 60" Slick 580 from Northwest RC and began the build, it came in perfect condition besides the anti-rotation pin in the left wing being glued in like the tower of Pisa... Easy fix with some pliers . Here is my setup: A Spektrum AR6210 Receiver, Savx SV1250MG Servos, Torque 4016/500 Motor, Talon 90 ESC, Falcon 16/7 Electric Beechwood Propeller, and of course, the Spektrum DX9 Black edition Radio. The build took me 12.5 hours nonstop because I had trouble with the Elevator and drilling the holes for the firewall . I took it out for a range test and a taxi test in my driveway, everything worked flawlessly as expected . I hope to maiden it tomorrow, but my Dubro long arms haven't arrived so I'm using the stock arms for the Savx servos, might be a little less exciting than usual .

Got the airframe for free at Baylands Park , with a broken wing, it needed some TLC to get in flying condition.

Many thanks , anonymous donor !

It has a 300 W in-runner motor, Kv =3900 RPM / V.
So, it operates in the ballpark of high 30 k RPM.
The propeller is a thin 5 in x 4 in

Battery LiPo 3S, 30C, 2200 mAh.
Wing span is 80 in, wing root chord is 7 in , wing area is 3.4 sqft.
All Up Weight is 45.9 oz, wing loading is 13.5 oz / sqft.
CG still needs a bit of trimming, feels nose heavy ...
Notice in the second launch, the visit of my friend the hawk .

There are numerous ways that UAV operations can benefit the mining sector during the life cycle of a project. Preliminary site development data can be captured for planning,engineering design and permitting.From monitoring initial site construction to on-going reporting of active operations (volumetric analysis and imagery) allows the Project Management teams to follow site progress.Regular environmental and compliance reporting can benefit from current high resolution imaging and analysis.Finally reclamation and environmental monitory can be examined well after the site is non-operational.

One of my best friends built this for me. Did an amazing job too. I am putting details on her but he built it for me. You think that people Round you don't see you struggle. You think they don't see all the hard times that you go through. No matter how much you want to hide if someone cares they show it. Thanks old friend. it has full range turnigy i10 and telemetry. Really loving this transmitter. I was nervous about it but have completed many test with great success.
