Hello good people!

Like the title says, it was a nose-in from 4 feet onto soft grass.

This happened back on Saturday, August 8th, 2020 at my RC Club and during a 2nd flight focus on landing. I was steady with the controls, especially Elevator control and without moving the stick, it just dived from 4 feet off the deck. Motor stick (8 mm X 10mm) was busted and right inboard top wing sustained a crack / rip. Propeller didn't break (GWS Slow Flyer 8 X 6).

Post crash (hard landing) investigation was undetermined as you all know during a good whack into a nose first crash the Elevator servo usually gets damaged. Well, the strange thing was after making air-frame repairs I took off the wing assembly from the FUSE and tried out the electronics while connecting the battery and observed the Elevator servo making this awful buzzing sound. After you moved the Elevator stick on the Transmitter was when it quit the buzzing and servo moved correctly to both directions.

I went ahead and changed out the 72-Mhz Castle Creations BERG 4-Channel receiver for the Spektrum AR8000 + SAT combo as this is in my opinion the best receiver that Horizon has ever made and wanted rock solid control from now on with my beloved and long discontinued GWS pico Tiger Moth. Even after I replaced RX to the Spektrum AR8000 + SAT, the Elevator servo continued it's buzzing and this time it was not until I turned ON my Spektrum first generation DX7se (Special Edition) that supports 11milli-second frame...Continue Reading

This is my new built a modified 40% Slowly V2. The previous was fun but motor did not like to many crashes so i build a modified version training inspired by the Micron wings Student Flyer.

Wings and landing gear were reused from previous Slowly. I added some CF reinforcement at the front . I used dollar tree foams and plate foam.

Here a video:

My $25 Goldberg Electra has a fuselage that needed more work than was apparent when I got it. It didn’t help that I knocked the fuse off my workbench causing the tail feathers to pull off. I believe it ended up being a good thing. They were barely tacked on to a 1/16” thick piece of balsa and had been altered to just lay on top and not go down into slots.

A video by Sonex413 on YouTube influenced me greatly. I am trying to match his setup:

A 2212 motor and Sullivan Gold-n-Rods were purchased. The motor came with 9g Servos. He ran wires and I’m trying to stick with the Sullivan kit’s yellow control cable. He also built a box for his lipo.

Yep Les Amis,
Quelques défauts mais toujours sur le podium ! Après quelques mises à jour, ce nouveau cru 2020 du FIMI X8 SE rencontre encore quelques difficultés, au niveau de la gimbal, qui met du temps à se remettre à l'horizontal, et avec le mode tracking, qui a un peu de mal à garder la cible. Malgré ces deux points, importants mais pas rédhibitoires, ce FIMI X8 SE se défend encore grâce à toutes ses autres qualités qui en font un appareil d'un excellent rapport qualité prix ! Pour 350€ avec les coupons, on a quand même entre les mains un engin fiable et résistant qui permet de rapporter des photos et vidéos d'une très bonne qualité amateur . Si FIMI arrive à résoudre ces quelques petits défauts, le X8 SE ravira une fois de plus la première place sur le podium des drones de prise de vue amateur à moins de 400€ ! Je reste confiant ... Bon Film et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

NOTATAZ : 17/20 Quelques défauts à régler Mr FIMI !
Niveau : Débutants et Confirmés

Folding prop from HK ( 5.1x3.1 )
Current draw is right on about 8 amp @ full throttle
The ESC seems to handle full throttle with little issue , and I dont remember what ESC is in there .

You would need to go over my old posts to see the figures for the previous folding prop .

Prop runs quiet and true

Now for this Stage 4 restrictions to go away !

( Speaking off - Retards are still out there without masks or face coverings ) Bring in Bounty Hunting ! I want a slice of that $1600 fine . ( Actually $200 for not wearing a mask / face covering ) = Original post !
ESC is apparently 6A , hopefully I wont cook it

Found the post >

Cox FW 190 Kit

I am mostly retired now, the only job I do is substitute teaching during the school year, and because of the pandemic, the schools closed mid March this year. So I have spent a lot of time at home since then, only going out when I really needed to. In June, I started a Value Hobby Zeta Dolphin 1010mm EDF kit that I finished the second week of July. Didn’t get a chance to try it because of poor conditions until the first week of August. Still haven’t had a good flight with it.

A friend sent me GWS T6 and COX FW 190 kits at the end of the second week of July. He didn’t want them anymore because he had moved on to bigger planes. These kits are not sold anymore except by individuals that never built them. I think it has been more than 10 years since they were new.
So on the 3rd week of July I started building a 1000mm GWS T6 Texan that I basically finished on August 10.

Now I will start on the COX FW190 520mm kit. This kit comes pre-painted, with a brushed motor, but no electronics. It comes with an elevator and rudder, but no ailerons. I plan on building it with brushless electronics, but currently do not intend to add ailerons. I think the original with the brushed motor must have had a battery mounted inside without access from outside except for a plug for charging it and an on/off switch. So I will be adding a battery hatch. Here are photos of the box and contents:
