#12 First twin. Nearly unlimited vertical on 4s. Great stol take offs. Must land with throttle. Not much of a floater. The stall characteristic can be brutal if ones not careful. TONS of fun to fly! Very versatile. Very maneuverable. Easily one of my top 3 favorite foam planes. A keeper.

True for True this is the World's Fastest 6s TFL Pursuit as of 11/16/18 (with no edits or cuts in the video). The boat got 79mph by the data logger and 78mph by the GPS device. The first" teaser pass" leading into the start of the video was my run right before this one and the max speed from the data logger on that run was 78mph and the gps was 77.2mph.

Mail call !
I kidd you not , my order of control horns arrived Sunday Morning
So I had no choice , it was time to make some moves on the Ripit .
Ground some holes in the carbon boom , installed some control horns and made up some control rods .

Everything seems to be working fine ..

Two things need doing , some sort of nose cone / pod and attaching the wing .
I guess I dont desperately need a nose cone ?
Still , will give it a go .

I've flown the 2019 Intermediate IMAC (#IamIMAC) sequence many times now, and one thing that leaps out for me is that this class requires a lot more practice than Sportsman - and every day - to get decent at it!

I haven't been flying much since Regionals in mid-September - just once or twice on the weekends - so my last flight this past Sunday wasn't very good. But I mounted a Mobius I camera in the cockpit in place of the pilot figure to see the view of the sequence from the plane. This ain't precision flying, but it's a lot of fun to watch from the pilot's point of view. The airfield is Flying Cardinals in Hebron, KY. They have a geotex runway. I used Dashware to add the telemetry data. I forgot to turn logging on for the variometer, so no altimeter! This sequence typically takes me to about 900 feet AGL.

There was a direct cross wind (about 5 mph on the runway and stronger above), and temperature was 42 F.

In the first sequence I forgot the 2 point roll at the top of figure 4. and then had to break sequence as I approached the top of the cross box Humpty when I heard a POP! I thought the ESC blew. Once I realized everything was good to go I resumed the sequence - kinda sorta - with the next figure. (It is supposed to be an inverted entry to the P-Loop, then a half roll on the upline.)

A rear view camera would help to see the rolls on the upline when there are no clouds in the sky. I'll have to add that next time.

The camera really helps me see all the...Continue Reading

Ok first of all......I’m new to Drones.......I know I know.....damn rookies. Day 3 I smacked a tree dead center even though I had changed direction and reversed but it didn’t respond. Maybe it was me. Anyway she won’t fly anymore and displays a message of “ Defective barometer sensor alert” in the app. I can turn it on and off but will not take off or even connect wirelessly anymore. I’m new and clearly cheap but I was really enjoying this. Help me get her back in the air please!

I had return to work on the autopilot by 2016 only. I decided to finish the job and install the GPS. So, when GPS processing was written, it was necessary to check everything. Now I want to introduce my Dusty. The layout is made on the basis of the Dusty toy. The ailerons and rudder were already moving,

Description: Layout of airplane

I had to cut only the elevator. In the layout 3 micro-servos and one ESC are installed. What is it for? To debug the work of the controls, I did control races on the car and walks with the layout, to test the flight algorithms using GPS. It is very difficult to understand if everything works correctly, and the layout immediately shows how exactly the steering gears work out and how the planes of the aircraft move. Also recorded a short video demonstrating the work of Dusty. After debugging on the layout, the autopilot was installed on the aircraft. In the test dates directory, you can also find a log of the journey on the Dvinskaya-Scottish-Nevelskaya route, and the route from the Michurinskoe-Dvinskaya. The latter contains 25 waypoints, and this route was passed correctly, which showed quite an acceptable system for deciding whether to reach the next waypoint.

It was the first flight of the "Dragon" with the GPS module, 5 years after the first flight. The battery was the same. A fragment of the flight can be viewed on the video. On this day there was a strong south wind about 20-30 km / h. The approximate flight...Continue Reading

I'm new to the hobby and have got myself a Feiyue 06 for starters. Was running great until the second run when I lost a wheel nut, hex hub and pin and a small Hexagonal T head screw (4.0 x 10TM) from the front axle! Waited 2 weeks+ for replacements on eBay and ran today to find that the 6 wheel drive is no longer functioning. At first I thought it was all back 4 wheels operating well, but but now I've realised it's only the middle two wheels that are powered. Any ideas as a complete beginner on how to go about fixing it? Should I open all up and see if a drive shaft has come out or take it to the store (an hour away and when I get the chance!)? If I only up do I go from the top or the bottom? I know how to get the shell off at least!

Any advice much appreciated!

Here' another Yak taking off from grass in less than 5m just to show how well it copes. If you dont try, it will take off by itself a few meters later.

This was a maiden with a Freewing Yak130 that a friend filmed. I had no idea if it could cope with grass back then hence the hand launch. Darn thing nearly tore his arm off with that JP fan and HV lipos. Turn up the volume and tell me what you think.

There is a nice little boat hiding under there still.

Found a complete drive, 3:1. Would like to have a 2:1 also. Can't seem to find just gears.

Might go retro if the Speed Control is still viable. Worked well when new.
