For those who may remember, when I was building models for the Phoenix Simulator on RickP's thread, I always added a female Pilot.

Here's a more realistic rendering of her. Need to redo the video i did with this setting. will take about a week to render

This is my unboxing for my new E-flite F-15 Eagle 64mm EDF Jet.

E-flite F-15 Eagle 64mm EDF Jet With AS3X & SAFE Select Unboxing (8 min 2 sec)

Review Notes for this Beginner EDF Jet:

- The paint scheme is nice and colorful
- It comes BNF Basic with very little setup required
- It is a RC Smart Jet thanks to optional SAFE Select
- Flies on popular 4S 2200s. Some say it will fly on smaller packs just fine too.

- You have to glue it
- Poor turning radius
- No rudders

Better late than never. Thanks to Nagas for pointing this out.

I use to contribute 3D models to the Phoenix thread on here and here's a render of the best of what I produced during that time.

Now that I know I have this will have to add more later.

Ever get the feeling you should put the transmitter down and go sit in the peanut gallery the rest of the day?

Halloa people

obviously OpenTX radio's are very popular because of their "flexibility".. you can make them do all kinds of things I recently heard someone say he had a hard time Feeling the center-position of a slider.. Depends on the radio ofcourse BUT.. You can add audible feedback

How?? In this short how-to I will show you...

I've had to use this in the past about not receiving an item. It worked for me. An officer from his town contacted me. I sent all emails, private messages, photos and contact info that I was given. I got my item back but not the money order. The item came from a different address. I contacted the officer and gave him the other address.

After the successful Phoenix CH-53 Stallion models, Rick was looking for the next copter to make and so I suggested the Sikorsky S-97 Raider. While Rick developed the model in Blender, I was working on the flight capabilities in Builder so a great collaboration. It has been a pleasure, thanks for the honour of working with you Rick and of posting the finished models.

Phoenix Models

Three versions are available for download here:

1) Sikorsky Raider Prototype P1 with side mounted gun pod and rockets.

2) Canadian Search and Rescue (SAR) with drop tanks.

3) Indian Air Force Sarang Demonstration Team.

The Sikorsky S-97 Raider is a high-speed scout and attack compound helicopter (main rotors and pusher prop) with a coaxial rotor system under development by Sikorsky Aircraft. Sikorsky planned to offer it for the United States Army's Armed Aerial Scout program, along with other possible uses including civilian applications such as Search and Rescue.

The S-97 made its maiden flight on 22 May 2015 and is a continuation of the experimental coaxial S-69 from the 1970s and the more recent X2 technology demonstrator of 2010. Construction of two prototypes began in October 2012, the first prototype (P1) was revealed in 2014 and has been used for flight testing while the second (P2) is for use as a demonstrator. The S-97 Raider is wholly funded by private investment with Sikorsky providing 75 percent of the costs and 53 principal suppliers providing the rest.

Swallow 800 (7 min 37 sec)

Rolled out of bed about 5.45am and walked out the door about 6.05am ( Sunday Morning )

So much wind this year .. Sunday morning is the only low wind time in about a week .

Swallow 800 > Mistakes !

I used 4.3g servos , dont bother ! Just use 9g servos .. When you glue the wing ( foam bits ) it is already very close to achieving CG . So when you pile in your hardware , your shifting that CG forward ..
I used some screws on the wing tips to get CG ,

I mentioned in a earlier post that the foam is soft , and the wing is easy to warp .

Flying the Swallow 800 ( NX3 gyro is off )

Needed a lot of trim to counter warping ( mild warp ) , but still !
My CG is as close as I can get to recommended , where the motor mounts to the model .
Ailerons are soft , really soft . You want decent length servo arms ( like with a 9g servo ) for more throw .
Elevator is ok , but that soft wing needs Aileron authority . Especially at the low speeds I was flying at .
I really need more aileron , and maybe I have to pull out those small servos and do a 9g transplant .

This thing is draggy ! The 1306 was @ about 1/3 throttle most of the time and it flew slow .
I think properly set up , this wing would be seriously NOOB friendly .
Being so soft how ever , you probably dont want to crash it . But , it's also relatively cheap . Selling under $20 USD for the kit at the moment .

If I built another ?

Definitely use some 9g servos .
Maybe a larger motor like a 1806 ( Maybe ) and a 5x5x3 prop ( Maybe )
