I have discover the buzz about the Tiny Whoops.

Some time ago I tried to get a Bat 100 up and flying but never did figure it out. Sat by my computer staring at me, day after day.

I was in a RC store grabbing a couple things when I saw them flying a Blade Induxtric Switch. It looks very smooth in the air. I bought one just to give it a try.

I had flown the Blade double rotor helicopters for a while and enjoyed that immensely. I have about 6 controllers for those so I figured I could, and did, just bind and fly with those.

This led to me searching the net, hearing about these Tiny Whoops, and eventually buying the parts to assemble one. My first was the brushless with 19k motors. I had some time ago bought a DX6 and box headset so I got those hooked up and began to learn to fly these little buggers. Man is it fun.

It took me a good week or two flying in the house then a little outside before I finally could handle trying to fly with the headset on. Still took some learning and flying but currently I am flying OK with the headset. Getting better the more I fly and practice for eventually participating in a whoop race.

I now have a brushed whoop using the original FC board from the Switch. I have been flying the brushless whoop as much as possible but I have now broken 2 cameras and needing another so the Switch has been my learning rig cause it is still flying. The Switch did not come with a camera but it does have a connector. I bought a camera...Continue Reading

Hi, I am looking for a set of plans for a radio control motor cruiser called MISTRAL, the only information I have is a copy of an article from a 1974 magazine called I believe Modelar Lublanska 57, 120 00 Praha2, CSSR, the article was written by Ivan Gavora and Jan Horak. I think it might have been a russian magazine. If you want to see what it looks like check ebay item number 273868439287 which appears might be a copy. I know its not a lot of info but please try your best.
P.S. I am new to the site so be gentle with me!!!!!

Not much to look at, but outright this is my favourite plane to fly. Still going strong since being built in 2014. It can do anything and fly from anywhere. I left the fuselage open and covered what woodwork there was with a fine cloth/resin finish. Flying surfaces are solar film...

Used this as a bit of a blank canvas for a bit of detailing. The base colour paints are Dulux matt emulsions that I had mixed up at a DIY store (Homebase). They stick pretty well considering the usual problem associated with painting Epo foam. Used Fisk film for the roundel masks and also for the lettering masks. It flies really well too!...Continue Reading

Stripped it down, recovered with solartex and a bit of glass/resin...then lots of masking and airbrushing for all the markings. Also converted to electric. Masking the stork was a nightmare... ended up using matt fisk film, tracing the design on to it and then spending a couple of hours with a new scalpel blade making a one-time mask. Same process for the "12". Used fisk film for the roundels as well and just prayed that it wouldn't bleed too much....Continue Reading

I noticed three Saito FA-30 owners mention thier engine had no Cam Cover Gasket nor a rear case gasket!

I think this is interesting and want to see if any other Saito FA-30 (or FA-30S) owners out there noticed this about thier engine.

It's not necessarily a bad thing and seems the engine may have been designed to omit the particular gaskets. So it may or may not be 'missing' but rather designed that way.
Perhaps, being so small, it doesn't need them...

Feel free to post your response below as well as any random thoughts
Anyhoo, good day y'all

Tip #25 - Brushed Motor & ESC - No Throttle Response?

Here is a link to the Video:

I have not worked with Brushed Motor & ESCs very much and recently had an issue where the Servos were working fine but I had no Throttle response.
I found the issue and if you're having the same problem this information may get your throttle working.

If anyone wants fpv watch or goggles in the UK I have some from xt-xinte stored in my garage ready for quick delivery.
Xt-xinte said they will sell them for $25 each posted in UK, I only have 10 goggles and 7 watches here so it's just a favour I'm doing for them clearing some stock.
Contact xt-xinte for details

I will delete this once sold.

Hero Hypersmoothing (2 min 37 sec)

I tried out Hypersmooth for the first time the other day.

Also i was having an issue with my TBS unify race locking me into pit mode when id powerup my quad. I had set the vtx into race mode via the betaflight osd which at the time i didnt realize puts you into pit mode when i power on... After lots of resetting the damn thing, i finally figured out i had to unock the vtx via the button push method, once it was unlocked, then i was able to reset the vtx via the osd into 'free' mode... now it powers up 'normally' for me again. im generally a set it and forget it pilot... :/

Hmmm , I have amassed a decent pocket knife collection over quite a few decades .
And the one thing and possibly the only thing that really impresses the heck out of me is blade steel ( How good it is - or not )

We had a pile of cardboard , and it was time to carve it up into small pieces that would not overly fill the rubbish bin .
This was a job for - no not superman ! , but rather a decent pocket knife .
All the boxes were about the same size ( hobby king )

1) Spyderco ? This one came from China .. It was the sharpest tool in the shed , and also the fastest tool to lose it's edge . ( Hey that rhymed ) Unfortunately I would rate it about half a box . It started out so well , but very quickly just lost that edge .
2) Ontario Rat ? Again from China .. Shaving sharp to begin with but started tearing about half a box in . I would rate it one box .
3) Enlan EL-08 , shaving sharp to start , another one box knife .
4) Y-Start D2 , from China . Shaving sharp to start . Carved up the first box like a hot knife thru butter . On that second box it started to lose the edge . I would rate this knife 2 boxes .
5) Enlan EL-06 , China . Not as sharp or easy to sharpen as the other knives . Again went thru the first box easily but lost its edge on the 2nd box . I would rate this knife 2 boxes .
6) Remington R3 ( ?? ) Not a genuine R3 , I don't know where this was made , but sourced from a USA seller over 10 years ago . If it is Remington then it's one of the budget Remingtons . ( Could be a Chinese Made R3 ? ) Anyhow ...
It just kept on cutting .. After 2 boxes it could still ( just ) take hair off my arm .

Seriously ! A budget , unknown origin R3 beats out a bunch of more modern knives , some of which claim decent steel .
The shame off it .

AGFrc released one brand new and nice waterproof servo named A77CHLW, it can not only water resistant, but also can work under water up to 1 meter. Full metal case for heat dissipation. This is the standard size servo with magnetic sensor inside, so it allows the servo turn to any angle and stop. The torque also very fantastic, it support to work up to 8.4V, and stall torque up to

It is really powerful for off-road, buggy, truck, crawler, cars, boat, aircraft, helicopter etc. With this servo, you may not care about the creek and muddy road while driving your car.

It is worth mentioning that the price is very attractive, it is only US$44.99/pc for the retail. I still cannot believe that the boss tell me this price. If you are considering which servo for your model, try this, it won't let you down.

While installing a CR Blade in my Flitz-2 last year, I shot photos of the process and put together a suggested process in pdf format.
The process should work for most wings unless there is a hard point molded in. In the case of my BAMF wings, I template routed a recess in the underside of the wing, epoxied the blade in and when cured, laminated 2 layers of Carboweave slightly larger than the width of the blade tongue.
