I have no idea if this model is something new or not but, I recorded it's flight on Saturday (11-24-2018) over at the RC Club field in Titusville, Florida at a club known as Moon Port Modelers RC Club.

David Rich is a fellow Instructor who flew this model with precision!

The Still Photographs were possible by Gerry (simano) who came with his Digital SLR Camera. Thanks Gerry!

Okay, here's the Video:

**** Attention! **** Attention! *****

I just don't understand WHY-O-WHY people come to Troll into one's FOR-SALE-Ad to dump crap and try to slander one's attempt to sell a model that one improved and most especially including items that I didn't get when I purchased with it originally.

It seems like some here are trying to be some sort of Price Police without any justification of any kind!

I have had to DELETE many Troll Like postings not only on this one attempt but, others and it is beyond me WHY-O-WHY we have so many people that don't have anything better to do than TROLL someone's For-Sale Ad?

Please note that I purchased this fantastic E-Flite Carbon T-28 Trojan model WITHOUT any Receiver, External BEC, Flight Battery nor any of the Hardware improvements that I have invested my time, effort and monies!

Additionally, I purchased this model with a BUSTED Nose Wheel Retract of which I am now including a brand new in the BOX replacement!

Okay, here's my For Sale Ad:

Turkey Day Flight - 3DR Solo (OpenSolo v3.0.0) [GoPro Hero4 Black] (5 min 5 sec)


Giving the Solo a fly after Thanksgiving to test out the gimbal damper mod along with the 180deg shutter with the ND8 filter. Quite happy. My flying is not wonderful, however.

With the module in the T12 I was not able to bind to my JJRC H36 or to my Eachine E010 micro quads . Now did I read somewhere that this was due to some sort of frequency crystal variable Bla Bla …

Now I just happen to own a few transmitters as you would expect from anyone who has been in the RC hobby for any length of time . My Turnigy 9XR pro has been running Open Tx for a while now with a iRangeX multi protocol module and I have been rather happy with the combo . So obviously I had to try the jumper module in the 9XR pro and the very first model to bind to ? It just had to be the Eachine E010 micro quad . You can understand my surprise when I got an instant bind with the Jumper module in the 9XR pro . The next micro quad had to be the JJRC H36 which had also failed to bind to the T12 . And once again I got an instant bind .
Since the protocols come from the module and not the transmitter ? , I have to wonder about the discrepancy . My suspicions are it might be a Tx Firmware issue . I have this quad , the WL Toys Q333 that simply refuses to bind to any Tx other than the IR8M which has serious range issues . I just had to try for a bind with the 9XR pro Jumper module combo and colour me purple , if I did not get a instant bind .
To test my theory on the firmware , I installed my iRangeX module in the T12 and tried to bind to the Eachine E010 . No bind . This module has never failed to bind before to the...Continue Reading

The stock 10.75x8 Valiant prop measures 19 amps and 226 watts using a 2200 3S 45C pack.
A 10x6 Master Airscrew Prop measures 27 amps and 406 watts using a 1500 4S 100 C China Hobby drone pack.

Both fit in the modified top battery door/compartment of the Valiant. This 406/226 = 1.79 or 79% increase in power should increase speed and vertical performance and still be under control the 30 amp ESC limit.

This is my ZOHD Dart XL Extreme FPV Wing Unboxing, Maiden Flight With Onboard Footage, and Review. This is an FPV Flying Wing that flies great and looks like something out of Star Wars!

ZOHD Dart XL Extreme FPV Wing Unboxing, Maiden Flight, and Review (26 min 17 sec)

Here are my review notes for this ZOHD Dart XL RC Plane:

- I love the ability to configure the nose for FPV and as a camera platform using both Runcams as well as both GoPros is very impressive. I used my Runcam 2 for the onboard footage.
- It flies very stable and it a joy to fly
- This ZOHD RC Plane looks incredible in the air
- I like how it quickly goes together and that nothing is unnecessarily complicated.
- Flight time with the recommended battery is 40 minutes!
- Skids on the bottom make landing much easier and flexible
- Extra servo connections underneath are a nice extra
- The pre-cut foam chunks are very nice for FPV
- This Jumbo Dart RC Plane is also made if biodegradable BEPP Foam!

Cons:
- The stock prop was hard to balance perfectly as you can here on the full throttle pass. A different prop will be sent with the production models.
- The only thing my model seems to be missing is the gyro and launch system the original Dart came with. Everything else is very impressive!

Hobbies are expensive, and the RC hobby is no exception. And thus, a place like this, where RC-loving people gather, will also attract people with different motivations, like those trying to gain something for nothing. Sometimes it seems like their activities start to overshadow the real spirit of RC. When subforums are being overrun by people spamming "deal-topics", sometimes even creating extra accounts on RC Groups, to maximize their chances on financial gain.

But that's not what RC is about, and it never will be. Imho RC is about a kid saving money with chores, being a paper-boy (or girl), so he or she can buy that kit, or that motor, or something else that is needed to complete the car, boat, plane, or whatever they are trying to get working. Or that sparkle you see in the same kid's eye when running his/her new(ly completed) model. Or as I've personally had the honor to teach a befriended collegue to fly FPV quads, and make such progress that at some point he's no longer a student, but someone having the time of his life, as he mastered the controls enough to be flying solo. That, imho, is the true spirit of RC.

Sometimes we may forget this spirit, and don't take time to sit back, and realize what a privilige it is to have access to all this exciting technology that enables us to enjoy this hobby in ways that weren't possible years ago. It's not about gathering free samples, clicks, how many subscribers, who's the best driver, pilot, etc, or affiliate links,and more of that. It's about the joy and excitement this hobby can provide, and being able to spread, and share this feeling with "kindred spirits" who know the value of keeping this in mind.

And in case one of us threatens to forget about this, others will hopefully step in to remind this person about what really matters. Maybe this blog entry can help a little with that.

For the love of the hobby!

Bottom Line: Below I have posted a video doing a side-by-side comparison of two of the most feature-packed Flight Controller and ESC stack combos for Micro FPV Quads. 👍

Why I have done this? – I have just completed a Micro FPV 2.5 inch build and learned a lot of stuff that I thought might be useful to some if I passed it along. In this case, I started out with a different Flight Controller and ESC stack than what I eventually ended up with. My first choice was a stack that had the flight controller and ESC connected by pins. I saw reviews and heard comments from some that they have had problems with this type of arrangement where the “housings” both the “male-type” with the pins and the “female-type” with the receptacles for the pins would physically become disconnected from the boards. So, I thought to alleviate this (because I liked the size, weight, and features of this particular stack), I would apply some epoxy to the joints holding the connectors to the board (as others had done to alleviate this issue). I did not have any problems with this. I did have other issues with the stack, however.

First of all, the ESC in this stack only worked sporadically and erratically and finally ended up burning out a motor (during set-up, not flight!). Secondly, the impact of “normal” unintended landings (i.e. crashes) caused the pin connector’s housings material (I believe it to be plastic) to crack—there would be cracks in the housings. These then led to...Continue Reading
