Well I was thinking of how to make my next video a little more interesting, so I decided to do some pre-production and see if I could make a cool intro to my next video. I think it came out pretty good . We stuck the camera out on the runway centerline and did some cool passes at it, took some pictures, and then later did a flight and I had my dad (cameraman) walk out with me to get some close up hover footage. Put it together with Soundgarden and, well... take a look!

OH! And if you want a bit more epic write up, head on over to my blog: Tom's 3D Huckfest

My Godfrey 27% Extra 300 is flying amazingly. With an 84" wingspan and weighing in at just shy of 19 pounds, this plane is a magnificent aircraft. It's powered by a Hacker Q80-7M motor on 10S and a Castle Creations ICE-2 160 Amp HV ESC, and swings a 24x10TH Mejzlik Carbon Fiber prop. It's awesome! Check out my blog at for updates on that awesome plane!

This is an article my friend Tony I. wrote about flight modes for my club's newsletter. Thanks Tony!

Radio Talk: Flight Modes for Planes

If you decide to try helicopters someday, one of the first radio topics you’ll learn about is “flight modes”. Flight modes are used even on beginner level helis, integral with throttle and pitch “curves” and other settings. It might sound daunting, but it really isn’t. It just takes a bit of time, and also having your helicopter in front of you so you can see what happens when you move the sticks and set the flight modes/curves. Essentially, in helicopters, the curves the flier sets in his transmitter make the servos respond in a non-linear way. These settings are necessary to make the helicopter react properly to flight requirements. “Idle Up” (Flight Mode 1) for example, generally is used to keep the throttle at half open or above, thereby keeping head speed up.

But this isn’t an article about helicopters. It’s about fixed wing aircraft. Flight modes can apply to our planes too. This is another aspect of our radios that a lot of guys maybe don’t understand, or perhaps don’t think they need. Learning to use flight modes will make your flying more precise, easier, and more fun for you. Interested? Read on.
If you have a modern six or more channel radio, somewhere on the face or top of your transmitter is a three position switch. If you have an upscale radio, that switch might be “assignable”, meaning you can make it a flap switch,...Continue Reading
