I just want to say thanks for the well wishes and concern shown by many of my fellow RC Groupers over my recent stroke.
I'll try to answer any questions regarding my stroke here instead of getting way off topic in the general discussion threads.

On Monday March 25th at around 5:15 PM my left arm seemed to develop a mind of it's own and tried to beat me to death. Luckily I was at work and not on the road home so was able to call out across the room for help. EMS was summoned and I was transported to Manatee Memorial after they decided I had a stroke local to my left arm only. The seizures had stopped by the time EMS arrived but there was no strength left in my arm. I couldn't even lift it without using my other arm to do so. Shortly after arriving at the ER, I experienced another seizure in the same arm but this one was short lived due to whatever the drug was they injected me with. I spent the night in the ER and was transported to the stroke unit the next day.
From there I was given steroids, and anti seizure medications via IV and had multiple CT and MRI Scans (with & without contrast) over a period of a few days. There is a small tumor/lesion of approx. 1.3 cm in my brain that they feel is responsible for my condition and surgery has been scheduled to remove it on April 11th. Prayers for a well trained surgeon with God guiding his hands will be much appreciated for this date. I'm hoping for minimal complications for this event although the surgeon has...Continue Reading

The V911 control board has been connected to the motor ..
And then hot glued into the J3 ..

Elevator / Rudder connections made ..

I did some chuck testing with the battery taped to the fuse and ........ I put some Velcro on the belly !
This way I can move the battery for CG ..

It's ready ! Just charging up a battery now ...
It is way too breezy for the J3 outside , so I might do some taxi runs in the hallway ..
It was very calm last night . so maybe a after dark session with the J3 ?

I enjoy preparing sections of material and surface sanding them down to see the unique resulting properties.

Typically with these tests I remove a huge amount of material because otherwise the material(s) would be too thin to hold together for sanding, or be glued with integrity, or with a perfect finish, etc. In the end something comes out that is somehow greater than the sum of its parts.

I have no practice application for this one in mind but thought it was interesting. Just sharing here.

RC F3h Demon RC EDF Jet Maiden Flight! [4K] (18 min 28 sec)


The other Day I finally Miadened My Scracth-built RC F3H Demon Navy Fighter Jet That I started building in 2006, I originally finished her in 2009 and she sat for nearly 10 years, then last year I got her ready for her maiden flight.

And Flew Finally Flew! And I'm very Proud to now really Be "DemonDriver" for real!

She flew 3 times 2 short flights and one 1-min flight which ended in her Lipo dying and her nosing in but the damage was not bad at all and she will be fully repaired soon and flying again.

https://www.banggood.com/custlink/KK3GrdJ1Bo - Minimum RC Piper J3 @ Banggood.com

I saw this on banggood.com and thought - how cute is that !
With Oz Wizards becoming crazy %^&^&#$^*'s and criminalising RC in Oz , it looks like law abiding citizens need to think smaller if they dont want to be licensed and registered like gun owners for flying model air-planes .

So with crazy Wizards running Oz !

This be a very small J3

Specification
Wingspans : 360mm
Length : 290mm
Weight : 25g
Motor : 720 coreless motor

My plan is to use one of my precious V911 boards to fly the J3 .
So as pictured , is where the stock build ends ... And the V911 conversion starts .

Fuse:
Comprises of 3 pieces of depron glued together
This makes for a light yet relatively stiff sheet fuse .
Only issue I see , is the section for the Rud / Ele is left as a single sheet . This makes the tail somewhat flexible and weak . ( Could be an issue )
Also be sure to alight correctly as the two outer pieces are used to create a slot for gluing the wing into .

Rud / Ele:
The rudder seems fine , but you need to be careful gluing the elevator .. It needs to be located carefully so it does not sit too far forward or to far back .
Also it is best to get your angles correct . the ele does not just sit there while the glue dries , it tended to droop for me .. So I needed something under one ele tip to maintain that 90deg angle with the rudder while the...Continue Reading

I didn't change the settings of the Turtle yet. The Gecko 3 inch flies very smooth and stable, almost like a 5 inch.

All good things come to and end and so it is with the Son of FrankenSolo. What a fun project.


I built a gimbal for this project using OlliW's STorM32NT gimbal controller. OlliW has provided excellent compatibility with Ardupilot and your choice of connection methods. You can use PWM, Sbus, Spektrum or serial connections between the flight controller and the gimbal. You can use Mavlink or OlliW's own STorM32 mode serial. Lastly you can use native mode STorM32 as I did which is a serial connection and the Betacopter branch of Ardupilot which includes OlliW's improvements for his gimbal. Native mode has the richest set of features.

In the modern world, people's lives becoming more and more intelligent. People is not only satisfied with current condition, more and more people are tend to make their life more modern. So more and more robots appear in our daily lives.

Maybe at the beginning people make the small robots just for fun, but as time goes on, we realized that robots play an important roles in our lives. The simulate robot which imitate the people action like sport, dance etc. The smart dog which can monitor your home, clean the house and even play with you. The robot arm which use for the high precision production line. The industrial robot which use for the place where people cannot reach etc.

As the robotics growing up, the servos are becoming more and more important as well. No matter how small or large size, that will be one place for the servo in the device, which use for control the moving direction. Servos are not limited for the RC Cars, Aircrafts, Helicopters, Boats, even at the beginning servo mainly used for these fields. But people find wider application with the servos.

The robot servos comes with different setup, but almost all the servos can be programmable now, so if you find a servo manufacturer/factory, then you find your servo too. As they can custom the servo as required not matter size, torque, speed, voltage, color etc.

So if you have any projects not matter for Robotics or RC Models etc., you can contact with us. We are the servo manufacturer with around 10 years experiences, which also custom servos for many companies. Some stock products, you can go through our website: www.agfrc.com

Pls remember the servos are not only the ones showed in the website, welcome to ODM and OEM.

It was $400 all in, without the electronicals. After 20 miles, the transmission was extremely noisy, despite lubrication & the sound damper. Despite the noise, the efficiency was a record high of 240mAh/mile empty. 2200kV is a better speed than 2400kV. The hall effect sensor worked without any firmware changes. It actually manetaned the same speed going downhill. There's no brake modulation, so it would have to always deliver the minimum power....Continue Reading
