XK A800
Super Kinetic
Mini Surfer 800



XK A800 ( Jumper T12 for Tx )

6D Flight mode ... I was flying low for reasons I will post later .
I dont know why , but when flying low in 6D mode the XK A800 wants to hit the ground (?) , twice on this occasion .
I did program in 3D mode , this is where you have partial flight levelling and the ability to stunt the XK A800 .
3D Flight mode ... It flew really sweet , with no tendency to smack the ground what so ever .
In 3D mode the XK A800 is a really sweet little plane to fly , offering no surprises like in 6D mode . ( Smack the ground )

Super Kinetic

I was really worried about this house brick .
Having watched reviews on youtube and seeing the Kinetic tip stall like a champ I was really nervous ( Maiden flight )
Battery was a Zippy 850 2s , as I was trying to keep the CG forward .
And I am really glad I did not go with a larger battery . It was sensitive to the elevator but not so much as to be unstable in flight .
I will update this post with a picture latter with a CG location ..
Dare say I would want more Expo ( I don't know what I have right now ) Maybe update this info when I post a picture .
Update - There was NO Expo what so ever .. I have set Expo to 30% for the control surfaces ...

It flew really nice and smooth though .
Also got it to fly slowly , slower than I have seen on youtube .
I did program flaperon .. And I had to try it as well .
I like it , it did lift the...Continue Reading

Here's some pics of my Efxtra that I replaced the speed control with a YEP 80 amp esc. I've been flying it on 4s 2200 batteries but using an 8x6 APC prop so wanted a little more speed control than what comes with it. That's the same as the factory 3s prop, but on 4s. Decent radar shows it going 128 mph but who knows how accurate that is- my buddy has an Efxtra all stock on 4s and I can out run him. The tread on rcg has some posts about using a 6s pack with a small prop to keep the current down, but my experience has been that when the prop is too small and the rpm too high, hand launching becomes an issue. So I'm sticking with 4s!

Note- I land on paved runways at fairly low speed so I've never broken a prop. I've seen in the threads that folks are breaking a lot of props- not sure why, maybe landing on grass. If I had to guess, I'd say folks are just landing it too fast- it does slow down quite well.

Anyway- it's a nice flying speedster and launches very easy with that 8x6 prop on it.

Hybrid drone generator engine Test (4 min 32 sec)

Name: WhatsApp Image 2019-04-28 at 16.34.17.jpeg
Views: 0
Size: 171.4 KB
Description:
This was one of the tests on our heavy drone (14+ kg).

We plan to sell the generator separately and also a complete hybrid drone system with a 4 kg payload capability with 2+ hours of flight time.

The generator specs are

weight: 3.6 kg

compatibility: compatible with any aircraft with a power consumption of less 2000W, the support mount can be customized depending on the needings of the customer.

Voltage: 12s (can be modified on request)

specific fuel consumption: 1L kW/h

dimensions: 20 x 30 x 40 cm

The generator is hybrid, this means that even in case of generator failure the drone will still fly.

The generator vibrations are suppressed before they can affect the frame.

Fuel: gas-oil mix at 1/30 ratio

The title to this blog post is a quote from the Propbusters movie below I agree

These two movies are available on Amazon Prime and I recommend them both. RC Propbusters: Untold is an intimate look at modeling in Connecticut but it could be anywhere. It will have the most appeal to this group. Model Citizen is about model railroading and while that is not a focus of this group it says a lot of meaningful things about the importance of a hobby.

One of the things apparent in both films is that modeling is primarily an adult pursuit. I have felt for decades that the AMA has wasted a lot of resources trying to return to the halcyon days when model aviation was the rage among the youth of America. Its proba why they went so gaga over multirotors. Those days arent coming back. Better they spend money advertising with AARP than what they have done. Im not saying there shouldnt be youth outreach, just that it shouldnt be so consuming. It should be more along the lines of EAAs Youmg Eagles program. There - Visible - Far from the primary emphasis.

RC Modeling may actually be suffering from this overemphasis on kids by making our hobby appear childish. This is a great hobby for adults. It is a great stress reliever. It keeps your fine motor skills going. It gets you outside away from the TV. It lets you participate in mans greatest desire - to fly.

In 1080p 60fps - Here is the raw uncut footage of my 1-year old Freewing F-22 Raptor High Performance 4S 64mm EDF Jet.

Freewing F-22 Raptor High Performance 4S 64mm EDF Jet - Fun Flight (4 min 26 sec)

Purchased about a year ago through Motion RC, this was my first Freewing 64mm EDF Jet. Prior to this I had only been flying Eflite UMX EDF Jets, so this Freewing 4S 64mm EDF Raptor was my "stepping stone" into the 64mm EDF class. Since then I've been flying a variety of EDF Jets from the 50-70mm EDF class. However, I somehow let a year go by without getting at least one flight video of my Freewing F-22 Raptor HP 4S 64mm EDF Jet.. until now.

A year late, but here's a fun flight video from this past weekend. Hope you enjoy the show!

----FLIGHT SETUP & MODIFICATION DETAILS----

Powered by a Pulse 4S 2250mAh 45C lipo, weighing in at 243 grams. The CG was measured at 88mm from the leading edge of the wing at the root. Weight without lipo installed is 837 grams. Flight Timer was set to 3:40 minutes. Flown with a Spektrum DX8 G2 Transmitter and using a Lemon RX LM033 DSMX 7-Channel Stabilizer / Receiver.

Modifications from stock were minimal:
1) A double spray coating of Minwax Satin Polycrylic Finish over the entire airframe.
2) A foam brush-applied coating of JB-Weld 5-Minute Clear Epoxy over the leading edge trim of the air intakes (to create a hardened reinforced surface against frontal landing abrasion), followed with Polycrylic over the epoxy-coated...Continue Reading

Well , not much unfortunately ...

Mini Surfer 800 - Ready to maiden !
But - A cold front rolled in and we have wind and rain ..
A quick check of the weather say's Monday might be the only day to play
Every other day promises some very decent wind for those wind turbines ....

Bixler HLG Project
Was put on hold for the Mini Surfer 800
I got some more 4ch FS2A Rx , so soldered one up the other day ...
Goal is to get some servos working for the Rud / Ele
Oh by the way , I have gone with a all moving ele for this one ... ( Might be interesting )
Hopefully will have a flying Bixler HLG soon ...

The old Gearbox is churning for a new DLG !
Kind of thinking / leaning toward 800mm , and use one of the WLtoys 949 control boards ..
I was thinking Ail / Ele with a fixed vertical fin ...

Come on WLtoys , make a small DLG already ... Something a little larger than the UMX Whipit ( 700mm )
On the Whipit , still not available . Even though it was promised for April availability here in Oz ..
I have set aside $100 for a Stock-Whip .... ??????????????

Get it ????

Plastic models help me study a plane that I hope to build someday. While investigating canard planes I tripped across the Macross DY-30 Chronos. Its a transformer from PlayStation videogame only available in Japanese.

The plane is very close to modern jets. While evaluating a number of them I discovered the Russian SU-35/37 Super Flanker Jet. So I found the plastic model in China and bought it with no problems. I had to make lots of parts and trim the canards to match photos.

Heres some photos of my version. The model will serve as a guide some day for a jet.

Hello all i recently upgraded my DYS xdr220 with a HGLRC f4proV6 aio board. The old board was a dinosaur compared to whats on the market today. I didnt want to break the bank or buy something that had a bunch of features i was not going to use.
The HGLRC f4proV6 board is a aio(all in one) meaning it has current sensor, filtered cam/vtx for best possible picture clearness. The board is 6S capable and will except up too 200A, thats a big wow!! The board out of the package came with antenna connector or extension, buzzer, and a cap which needs to be soldered on. The board layout is very easy to follow as it has two ports for wiring in your Rx a no brainer, and lights and buzzer if you want lights, the buzzer is a must. The vtx is integrated into the board and all you need to do is solder your camera's wires to the board and your in business. Soldering the esc's to the board is also a no brainer and i like the fact that you can solder the negativer or ground wires together on the same pad, as there is a single pad for the signal wire. It only took me 15 minutes to solder all wires to the board as they were already in place from when i removed the main dys aio board that came with the 220. I had to drill a hole in the top back of the canopy for the antenna extension cable to be mounted and it came out clean. I needed about 8 small nylon stand offs to mount the board to the frame and also to raise the canopy a little as i wanted plenty of air to flow over the board. I need to...Continue Reading
