(Left Losi right UFRC)
The huge spindles at the front suspension fill the rims almost completely and guarantee high load capacity. The joint balls in the a-arms have a diameter of 15 mm (FG uses only 10 mm for the same vehicle size).

Front and rear spindles/uprights prepared for installation of in-wheel brakes.

Remember this glider ? ( Maybe not - been a while ) Cheetah 100cm Hand Throw Glider

Motor Prop = XK A800
Rx = JoysWay Invader
Tx = JoysWay Invader
Servo = 5g I think ? or maybe 4.3g ? ( I forget )

Nothing is glued yet . I did gouge out the hole for the Rx , and after these pictures were taken I gouged out a hole for the 2 servos . ( Rud / ele )
The motor was done via Philips Head screw driver ..
I just poked a hole in the nose and gouged out a hole about the size of the motor ..
Yes , I did a fair bit of gauging today ..



Hopefully finished on the morrow .
A very budget'y build using left overs .

So this addition to my blog is a little late. My son surprised me this Father's Day with this really cool Kyosho Dodge SRT Hellcat RTR. I've never owned anything Kyosho before (other than a Honda CBR motorcycle back in the 90s), so this is my first. I have to say, I am impressed. The body is beautiful, with lots of cool details, like mirrors, shark-fin antenna, rear stabiliser, and rear window defrosters. The chassis itself is really nice, with great suspension and well balanced. It comes with a 550 motor and really scoots along nicely. It's not really that fast, but with a higher volt lipo, I'd say it has potential. And the best part was being able to just charge it up and go! The boy and I had a great time running it along side my Associated TC3. Many more 'races' on my cue-de-sac are soon to come.

The cowl uses 3 screws to secure it to the nacelle. Once those are removed you still have to remove the spinner bolt, adapter nut, prop, and backplate. If you cant remove the prop because of a jammed nut or stripped collet threads then cutting the cowl away is one way. Here is a cowl that uses red (or white) electrical tape to hide the cut line. The top tape can stay in place and act as a hinge. The remaining cut lines can be hidden or left visible as the 3 screws will secure the cowl to the nacelle.

I made up a tool to keep the the motor from turning while tightening the prop adapter nut. If you cant keep the motor from spinning by gripping the spinner backplate you must grip the motor. Removing the cowl with this clamshell mod will allow you to do this and screw it back in place. If you have a prop strike and suspect a loose motor mount this mod allows you to inspect the motor area quicker because the prop will not have to be removed.

The top hinge can be made from any kind of tape. I have been using a Tyvek paper hinges on flaps and other flight controls and CA works excellent on plastic if its sanded first. However clear or electrical tape can be used.

subtitled "how to flash additional protocols to the irx4 (first version) using a simple usb link to the taranis x9d+"

okay, it's not actually magic, it's flashing new and clever firmware to allow additional protocols to be added to the multimodule using the same plain usb cable that you use to connect to openTx companion, rendering the usb cp2012 breakout and wiring to an opened multimodule redundant

trust me, you'll believe it is magic once you've done the upgrade


my considerable gratitude to pascal (hpnuts) and ben (benzo99) for their assistance in guiding me through a significant simplification in the process to upgrade the irx4 module (that's it in the picture in the post below this)



realistically, all you need is here :
https://github.com/pascallanger/DIY-...iling_STM32.md

anything else is linked conveniently from that link

the latest upgrade binaries are at https://github.com/pascallanger/DIY-...odule/releases


since i did it from scratch well over a year (or maybe two) ago, there has been a release of the "flash multi" app that makes it way simpler

the only bits you will need are :
and the phillips head screwdriver to undo the irx4

oh, and if you don't have one, the iRangeX irx4 module - go on, use my...Continue Reading

Xiaomi FIMI X8 SE 5KM 4K 3 axis gimbal
372 - $ 409 - Banggood GWTR Warehous Coupon: BGFIMIX8DQ http://bit.ly/2LtzM6u
This is the 4K version of Xiaomi Video drone which has real 3 axis stabilization and a 4K camera. The good thing is that the video image is transmitted digitally in HD live up to 5km. GPS with all the important functions like following, selfie gestures, flying around an object are included.

I am excited about the video drone. A very good control to which an iPhone or Android mobile phone is connected. The app works very well. The most important feature I'm interested in is always the video quality and above all how well I can control the drone while filming without something in the picture jerky. Due to the slightly more weight of the FIMI the drone stays calm in the air. A wind does not bother here at all.
I find the camera guidance very good on the FIMI remote control. All panning and movements are very good straight away and the video looks every soft. Such a good quality I know only from DJI. Here Xiaomi shows that you can make even for less a perfect video drone.
The Xiaomi FIMI X8 SE is better than the DJI Sparks or DJI Mavic Air and comes close to the DJI Mavic Pro.

Pro:
- stabilized with 3 axis video camera
- Very good 4K camera
- Flight time over 32 minutes
- 5KM range
- very stable flight

cons:
- nothing

"One who fails to reach the Great Wall is not a hero." The Great Wall is known as one of China's symbols. But this majestic ancient building that has stood in China for nearly two thousand years has long lost its original majesty due to the erosion of the years.

The Great Wall, the "Great Wall" in our mouth, is the greatest and most majestic military defense project in ancient China. The oldest Great Wall in history dates back to the Western Zhou Dynasty. During the Spring and Autumn Period, the Great Wall built the first climax, and the various vassal states built the Great Wall fortifications on their respective borders. However, the Great Wall during this period was relatively short and relatively low. After Qin and the Six Kingdoms joined together with China, they repaired the Great Wall links of the various vassal states and they were known as the Great Wall. The Ming Dynasty was the last era to overhaul the Great Wall. The Great Wall that we can see this year is mostly the buildings of this period.

The Great Wall resources are mainly distributed in 15 provinces, municipalities and autonomous regions such as Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Inner Mongolia, Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaoning, Shandong, Henan, Ningxia and Xinjiang. According to the National Great Wall Resources Survey conducted by the Chinese Cultural Relics and Surveying and Mapping Department, the total length of the Ming Great Wall is 8851.8 kilometers. According to...Continue Reading

The next logical extension of the DIY Afterburner LED unit was to ADD more functions. Seeing a microcontroller can do a LOT of things... it may as well be set up to do all the common things you might want or need.
So:

1) Afterburner LED system - with two Modes of operation.
Mode 1: Off, or Afterburner ON = Flicker constantly (for older era jets)
Mode 2: Off, or Afterburner ON via a short Flicker (for AB ignition) and the ON Solidly (for more modern jets)

2) Strobe Light Outputs - for Three different timing version Strobes.

3) Super Gear Sequencer.
a) Two modes - Main Gear Doors close after Gear Extension.... or they stay open.
b) All Servo Endpoints can be individually set, so that the Doors are accurately opened and closed.
c) Door Operation Speed can be altered.
d) 'Memory' of the last used state, so that it can resume the same state on the next power up
e) Tracks the state of doors and retracts so that any decision to change gear direction part way through a cycle still 'reverses' everything in a correct order so there are never any 'collisions' of Doors/Retracts.

It has some Options. Such as:
- The afterburner can have a trim pot added to allow real--time setting of the AB/Throttle Trigger point.
- A Pin Header jumper to enable/choose Mode1 Afterburner (it defaults to Mode0).
- A Pin Header jumper to select the Gear Doors operation mode

It is 95% all done - the coding is done and works, but I have not made up any document(s) for it yet.
I...Continue Reading
