Ezio 800 Take 2 (8 min 53 sec)



Take 2 :

1) Larger , heavier battery !
2) New prop ( 4x3 ) We have thrust
3) Expo was 60% for Ailerons and 80% for Elevator / I then changed these to 50% for the Ailerons and 60% for the Elevator ( With the CG at flight )

So the first thing you can see in the video is increased stability , the CG is still rearward but the 80% Expo really tamed the Ezio ..
There is thrust now ...
Before with the factory prop , 50% throttle would not pull the skin off a rice pudding , and even 100% throttle was barely enough to climb .
Now with the 4x3 , I can cruise @ around 1/4 throttle , climb with 50% throttle and have power to spare .

That extra thrust really comes in handy .

I did glide the Ezio a fair bit , and the battery was still 69% when I got home ( That walk home might have helped in that regard ) .
Am I ready to give the Ezio a thumbs up ? = No !

Put in a new motor , make the nose longer , upgrade the controls , a better prop .
In other words , a bit of R & D !

My flying weight was 190 grams . The Ezio wants to go on a diet if you really want to glide it .
I would really like to see a motor prop combo that say does 5A or less at full throttle on 2s ..
Cruises at 1/4 throttle , and CG's with say a 350mAh 2s and comes in at under 150 grams .
( R & D )

The motor is making funny sounds , so not sure how long it will last ? ....

I would really like to see a $30 USD kit around 800mm about the same size as the Ezio - F959 - XK A800 that can be built to around 100 grams ..
That would be something !

Hmmmm , I have this motor , pulls 1.8A on 2s and .................................................. ....................

These 3 remote control buggy car toy s did pretty well. Nothing broke or got damaged while filming. They went through some stairs, grass, sand and other rough grounds. Test passed!!!
These buggy car s are an attractive option for a gift. Drive them indoors or outdoors. It is great excuse or reason to go outside, walk around and find fun places to drive these remote control buggy car s. So get one, go outside breathe some fresh air while having fun with your son or daughter.
Four wheel drive, simulated lights, pistol type of transmitter, buggy car battery is included.

Wings had a 3 degree incidence. The decision to use three dihedral variations made the sheeting somewhat of a challenge. I had to reduce the top curve of the biggest four ribs nearest the root. That was the only way to make the LE fit accurately.

Installed the 425 Hitec Digital Servos. I put rib strips over the open parts of the wings. At this point I plan to leave them open for weight mainly and to give easier access to the Servos. To unscrew the servo wheels I had to cut an access hole in an adjacent rib. I do not plan to make a hatch to the Servos.

The wings are 26”, fuse is 5”. 57” WS.

Wow, I'm getting old and lazy. Went out and flew with Poh and the boys from Tullahoma on Monday. I realized I hadn't touched the sticks since the NW trip last year, June 2018. Yikes! I still haven't programmed my Shadow 2 and Shadow 2 E. So I ended up with the Gentle Lady for the winch and the Radian for electric. I only flew for about an 1-1/2 hours. Thermals were great, but I was way rusty. In retrospect, the Gentle Lady and Radian were great choices. I really looked pretty sloppy up there. Would have hated to see the results if I was maidening the new Shadows. Better to look sloppy and rusty then have twisted piles of wrecked moldies….right? Also, felt better flying 72 MHz on the GL and only flying 2.4 on the foamy Radian. The guys related to me how yesterday, the military had been practicing shooting down drones on 2,4 with their new jammer/guns, just a few blocks up the road. A sobering thought.
Eventually we had to pack up the winch trailer and call it a day. Poh, Bill, his wife and I headed over to the Celtic Cup in Tullahoma for lunch. About a mile or two from the field. Interesting place, it wasn't an Irish pub, but an Irish Coffee house/giftshop. Food was good and it was nice and cool on the inside (94deg outside). We had soup, panini's and salads. We broke up about 2pm. I headed back up to Murfreesboro via the backroads, instead of I-24 to enjoy the rolling countryside and quaint little towns. All in all, a great day, with no crashes and great scenery.

Seems like as soon as I get something worked out with the FT Simple Cub, I run into another issue. Makes me think the plane is cursed!

Well after the bent motor shaft issue, I got the motor replaced and fixed anything else that needed fixed, I gave the FT Simple Cub another shot. What I got was a pretty successful flight that ended early in a gentle glide back down to Earth. You can see what happened in the video.

FT Simple Cub Flight (3 channel)...I think this plane is cursed! (6 min 17 sec)


The problem itself isn't all that bad and should be a quick fix, but it does make me wanna do some bench testing just to make sure it doesn't happen again. Don't worry, despite this plane's cursed status, I'm not giving up on it.

In June I started building my second IOM.
The first was a Goth MK designed by Frank Russel, made it with strips of wood, cedar and mahogany.
This I'm doing with cedar blades crossed at 90 degrees.
I'm using 0.6 mm thick blades.
After sanding and leaving it smooth, covered with fiberglass of 80gr / m˛ and 5 layers of epoxy resin. Here are some photos of the project....Continue Reading

I'm looking for ideas to help make interchangeable engine mounts for my current build. It's just a standard ply firewall, and I'm fitting a Saito 130TD (4-stroke glow twin cylinder). That should be a good match for this model but I have 2 other engines I want to use some time too, an FA-182TD and a YS FZ91AC. The 182 is very similar in weight and dimensions but it has a different mounting bolt pattern, though they both use a similar radial-type mount. The YS is a single cylinder 4-stroke and needs a standard store-bought 2 beam engine mount, but once again that mount will have another bolt pattern too.

There isn't room to drill all the different holes in the firewall and fit blind nuts, in fact for beam mounts I could even end up with holes overlapping. It's possible I could convert from one engine to another by removing the blind nuts and filling the holes, then drilling for the 182 or another mount, but it's a one-off, I couldn't go back to the 130 again later. The model has been designed around that engine so using the 182 with it is not a priority, but that engine and the YS haven't been used yet and it seems handy to use an existing model to try them with until I can build something else for each. The YS will hopefully get a Kaos 90 made for it. OTOH the Fa-130td would be worth trying in that model too, so if I had a reasonable method for swapping either the engine mount or the firewall itself I could get more use out of all 3 of my "big" engines, and...Continue Reading

All -

Scanned from my original copy of June 1950 Flying Models it's Walt Schroder's Gassies 1/2A free flight designed for newcomers.

The thick wing would help with steady flying, I'll bet it would be a good flyer today also.

Enjoy,

Best regards,

第一段階として、サスペンドさせるための錘の量を決めること。
100g超から始めて7-8回目に77gでサスペンドさせることが出来ました。

ネガティブタンク ピストンで浮力コントロールも出来て、上下に自由自在に動かせます。
童友社のUボートをポンプバラストで製作した時もそうでしたがピタッと静止させることは
できないですね。ジワリと上下どちらかに動きます。

Slave I was a modified Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft used by the infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett before the Clone Wars and later by his cloned "son" Boba Fett.

In the movie "Attack of the Clones " while under Jango's ownership, the ship was in a dogfight in an asteroid field with young Obi-Wan Kenobi who flew a Jedi starfighter.

Later in "The Empire Strikes Back" during the Galactic Civil War, the adult Boba Fett used Slave I to transport Han Solo who had been carbon-frozen by Darth Vadar from Cloud City to Jabba the Hutt on Tatooine.
