Hello good people!

Had a super time over at MARKHAM PARK RC CLUB in SUNRISE, FLORIDA!

Both Saturday and Sunday mornings! Attended my first RC Club meeting on Saturday morning and all were great and got to see some fantastic models. Here is my Hangar9 F4U 50-size Electric stretching its wings and performed just fantastic in blistery wind conditions.

The trip was great as I visited family down South Florida and made the trip a multi-purpose trip and all enjoyed it.

I am very glad to have had the opportunity to be down in South Florida again as it has been a long time since I have visited.

A few pictures!

Hello Good People!

Arrived at Moon Port Modelers RC Club on Monday (Presidents Day) at 9:00am and had the entire field to myself.

SIG SEņORITA flew delightfully even with the kick-up windy conditions and best of all for a whopper of 14 minutes using the 4-Cell, 3300mAH, 35C, Lithium Polymers as that E-Flite Power 25 always doesn't disappoint while swinging the APC "E" 12 X 8 propeller.

I can tell you that it was refreshing to have a transmitter (FUTABA T4EXA) without the need to charge the Transmitter Battery between flights as I purchased and installed the new Turnigy 3-Cell, 2500mAH, 5C, Lithium Polymer and after that long flight it still read 12 Volts on the Transmitter display. I have retired that cheesy 8-Cell, Ni-Cd 600mAH battery for good. I have three of these Transmitters and I made sure no issues were going to be as a result by using the slightly higher Voltage of using the 3-Cell Lithium Polymer so, I took precautions and charged the new battery to nothing over 12.2 Volts. After installing it, I left the Transmitter powered "ON" for a total of 25 minutes on the work table and didn't sense any over-heating of the Voltage Regulator circuit and display listed normal. The Voltage dipped down to 12.0 Volts after 25 minutes test sequence and this would have been another recharge experience using the old 8-Cell, Ni-Cd, 600mAH batteries.

Yes, I did consider the Sanyo Eneloop AA NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries, but, the cost ($$$...Continue Reading
