This arrived yesterday, a few days early compared to when Amazon said it would arrive.

I've been using it for my current cargo plane build, and I like it a lot. Works great on foam board, gets really hot (200 watts, ~400F). Very little dripage during idle times. Finally semi-retiring my old Stanley 40 watt glue gun which I used for I can't count how many years, ever since I started using hot glue. This Stanley gun leaked a lot, it would drip about the same amount of glue that I used. Semi-retiring because it has a low and high setting, I need the low setting for EPS foam.

The new one from AdTech has only one setting (high), and no switch, just plug it in. Works great!

Cargo plane is under construction for the Fourth of July weekend, which now is almost over (boohoo).

I still need to build the main landing gear, the nacelles, and then install electronics. Design was inspired by FliteTest's "Guinea Pig". Also trying some building techniques I learned from FliteTest. Materials are all Dollar Tree foam board, wing span 50 inches. Will be powered by a pair of HURC 2410-12D (from Heads Up RC in Florida - great place (the online store, can't say for the state since I've never been to Florida)). These are the same motors that were in my 200th build (200-2012).

That's the nose of So.50 in the background.

I was able to finally get my Beta 75 in the sky. I ended up picking up a Taranis QX 7. I love it. Its such a huge step up from the toy grade transmitters I have used in the past. I did have some issues with the camera it smoked after a 2 minute flight. No biggie though I try to keep a few camera on hand.

This build is stock outside of the BetaFPV H01 camera that I put on in place on the BetaFPV Z01.

Here is some DVR footage of me doing some laps.

As it says, YET ANOTHER dead F4 v2 , FFS , had enough of this crap now . This one wont even connect to Betaflight and the LED is very low.

I am absolutely fuming.

I am making a quadcopter. For that purpose I bought a new FLYSKY CT6B transmitter and receiver. I tried to calibrate ESCs and brushless motors but when I turn off the power supply ESC restart. So I have to calibrate again and again. Is there any problem in receiver or ESC?

Hi all. New to the site and new to rc flying. Just one question I'd like to ask. The flaps on this plane automatically go down the more you increase the throttle. Is this correct. Any help most welcome. Thanks.

Couldn't resist getting one of these, the new Fliteline F7F Tiger cat. Big and beautiful, the plane is more than I expected. Very well built and finished, very good deal for the money.

What are LiPo batteries? And why are they so popular in the RC world?

LiPo batteries (short for Lithium Polymer batteries) are a type of rechargeable battery that has taken the electric RC world by storm, especially for planes, helicopters, and multi-rotor. They are the main reason electric flight is now a very viable option over fuel powered models.

RC LiPo batteries have four main things going for them that make them the perfect battery choice for RC planes and even more so for RC helicopters over conventional rechargeable battery types such as NiCad, or NiMH.

1) Light weight. RC LiPo batteries are light weight and can be made in almost any shape and size.
2) Large capacities. RC LiPo batteries have large capacities, meaning they hold lots of energy in a small package.
3) High discharge rates. RC LiPo batteries have high discharge rates to power the most demanding electric motors.
4) No "memory-effect". Unlike NiCad or NiMh; LiPo's have no "memory-effect".

In short, LiPo’s provide high energy storage to weight ratios, are capable of fast discharges, and come in an endless variety of shapes and sizes.

These benefits are important in any RC model, but for airplanes, helicopters, and multi-rotor they are the reason electric flight has become so popular.
