Proof of concept for a carbon fiber space frame for a 24" model continues. Made of a mix of 1K tow and .010" and 0.030" commercial rod.

I will be adding upper/lower diagonals to this but wanted to capture the interesting movement of the truss in torsion.

Quite a bit more construction and reinforcement will be added but it just under 1g currently.

Bit random BUT very relevant to my fpv quad flying as it will allow me to cheaply and easily get out and about further afield to fly my fpv quads which I can simply chuck in a rucksack and effortlessly explore the Yorkshire area with that electric assist to help out up the hills ( which are considerably steel and plentiful in Yorkshire lol )

I will make some videos of the rides too when I get an idea of where to best ones are and can do them without stopping every 2 minutes to figure out where I'm going lol.
Yesterday I did 30 miles on it mostly on the wonders of wakefield cycle route which was meant for mountain bikes but this managed it ok and I only used the power for the hills and when I got tired , still had 4 out of 5 bars of power left when I got home!

It has a range of pure power to about about 15 miles but with pedaling it's looking like I could go for as long as I want just use the power to take the pain out of the hills.
Has proper 6 speed Shimano gears and disc brakes and though the wheels are small they are wide decent tyres with good grip and strong enough to handle the rough ground and pot holes we have around here.

I'm 5ft 10 and it is ok for me to ride size wise and of course goes much smaller and also folds down a bit to fit in a car but doesn't fold in half which is good and bad, good in that it makes it stronger but bad in that it won't fold as small.
A couple of pics from my ride out.

First attempt and making a night flyer and I think it is a success! Not only does it work well but it also looks very cool and catches eyes. Motor is a 29 gram 1000kv on a 3 cell, 5&9 gram servos, 10 amp esc, 12v LEDs red white and blue. And a 2 or 3 cell to run the lights

I have the R9 and have bound using the 9-16 with telem. I am using sbus to my vector. However vector will not allow flaps so I am trying to hook my flaps to channel 7&8 via pwm. The servos are getting power but they will not respond to me switch. I had the same setup with the R8 and it worked. I bound the R9 over the R8. Any ideas?

Having fun in a vineyard with Happymodel's new Larva X. Footage was recorded on the internal DVR of the Diamond VTX. I'm still a nooby, but I'm improving fast :-)

I was going to wait until the next episode of "The Pilot's Lounge" to post this information but thought I should post it while it's still fresh.

I have used the SkyRC D100 V1 Balance Charger for approx. 3 years now.
It has been a fantastic charger ;-)
So why did I get the V2 Charger?
Well, I have used my V1 a lot for the past 3 years and now the Stop Button is getting a bit problematic.
I have to depress the Stop Button in just the right spot to get it to actuate.
I suspect the Printed Circuit Board is worn under that button.
After contacting and getting a reply on the second email I sent to SkyRC I was told they had no spare printed circuit boards.
I suspect there are no spare parts for these chargers at all, so keep that in mind.

They are fantastic chargers and I like then a lot and will most likely be looking for another SkyRC Charger in the future when need arises.

Yep Les Amis,
Ergonomique et full options, mais ... J'ai en test depuis quelques jours la nouvelle radiocommande de chez WFLY, la ET12 . D'une très bonne qualité de finition et bien équipée, cette radio propose un menu facile à comprendre pour les novices et très riche pour les plus pointilleux. Un bel écran tactile, des options nombreuses, moult Switchs ou Aux et de nombreux réglages pour les sticks font de cette radio, une des mieux équipée du marché dans cette gamme de prix. Mais, car il y a un mais ... Elle ne possède qu'un seul protocole (FHSS WFLY ) , pas de baie pouvant accueillir un module et encore moins le CrossFire, pour les adeptes . Mis à part ce petit manquement, la ET12 reste une très bonne radio très complète et simple à programmer . Bon Film à Tous .

WFLY ET12 Radiocommande - Review Test Démo - Complète, Simple et Efficace ! (39 min 42 sec)


NOTATAZ : 17.5/20 Une bonne Radio

Niveau : Débutants et Confirmés
Les + : Bonne qualité et finitions, Menu très complet, Simple à utiliser, Bonne ergonomie, Bonne réception, Nombreux réglages Gimbal .

HappyModel 0802 Brushless Motor (0 min 55 sec)




Unlike my 1103 , the 0802 actually runs !
Just a quick little video to show the 0802 running with the 5A 1s ESC ..
I made my own connector to bridge the motor ESC ..

I just need a mount for the little 0802 now ..

There is still a smaller motor to be had , the 0602 , but the weight is so close to the 0802 that ?
Oh well , if you like cute little motors , then you may want one .

So the motor runs 1s just fine . The ESC works .
Hmmm , aside from being really cute , what do I do with it ? ( Besides some testing after I get it mounted )

Tokai Kisen produced and launched a radio-controlled model of the “Ai” jet ship operating between Tokyo Takeshiba and Izu 7 Islands.
The hull design is the late Uncle Tris, Ryohei Yanagihara.
I have produced three of his design works, “Rainbow”, “Friend” and “Daisen”. In all cases, the paint masking work was difficult due to the unusual pattern design. This “love” also has a heart-shaped design,
The curve masking took time to reproduce. Even so, the pink color of this hull is the first color in my ship's coloring and I feel a culture shock.

Ready to fly better FPV today?!? 🤩
Today, we set up rate profiles and enjoy BOTH freestyle and race-style flying using different rates with the flip of a switch!
See the rates of some outstanding freestyle and racing FPV pilots like LeDrib, Mr Steele, StingersSwarm, Minchan, Headsup FPV, and Nytfury!
We use the average of their rates as a baseline for our rates and put them on a transmitter switch so you can easily change rates for freestyle and racing simply with the flip of a switch.
We cover what the rates are, how they affect your flying and how you can alter them to fit precisely YOUR flying style!
Sound good?

I have an R9 with the R9M module in my Taranis X9D plus se. I am using sbus to go to my flight controller the vector and I want to use the pwm our on channel 7&8 for my flap. I cannot get this to work. My sbus channels are working fine but channel 7&8 and not working with my flaps.

I had this same setup with an R8 and it worked perfectly. Any suggestions?
