Testing UV-C disinfection robot. The robot is equipped with 2 cameras (wifi and fpv) and remote control.
A separate switch on the RC is used to turn on and off of UV rays. The prototype is currently being tested and improved.

I am mostly interested in building and flying discuss-launched gliders. I am just recently returning to RC planes after a long (many years) break. In my younger years, I flew large RC gliders using high-starts or winches. My favorite back in those days was a Sailaire which had a 12.5 foot wingspan.

Currently I have a Dream-Flite Libelle and a rough, ugly DLG that I play around with and call "Ugly Bird". I'm also building a (hopefully) much better DLG from an old short kit. The Ugly Bird has (poorly) vacuum bagged wings based on AG04 airfoils and uses a carbon shaft and rod along with a model rocket nose-cone and tube as the fuselage. It is ugly, but, it flies a bit better than the Libelle.

私はビーチが好きではありません。特に日傘や人混みで埋め尽くされたビーチは、スクリーン越しに太陽の灼熱 をかぐことができるようです。 湯気と人と騒々しい声で海には一向に興味がありませんでした。
私は海を見たことがないので、ずっと海を見に行きたいと思っていました。 しかし、私の心の中の海はいったいどんな様子なのだろうか。 私は思った。それはきっと一つの通りの果てにあったに違いない。これは少しも目立たない狭い道で、道の両側 には高低差のある家屋が敷き詰められていた。白い壁面の色はすでにくすんでいて、何年か成ったように見えた 。 家の根底に沿って雑草が生えていて、誰もわざと手入れをしていないのに、相変わらずよく生えていて、よく見 ると指先ほどの小さな黄色い花があります。
こうして、この道をまっすぐ行くと、途中で稲の生えた田んぼが見えてくるかもしれないし、何もないかもしれ ない。 しかし、道の果てには必ず海が見えて、海が大きいかどうかも、漁師が生計を立てているかどうかも気にしない で、私はただ知っていて、これは私の海に対する最もロマンチックな想像です。
これまで、海は多くのイメージを与えられて、昔の人はその壮大な志を述べて、海はこのように壮大で壮観な体 で私達の記憶の中に印刷したようで、昔から変わらない。 しかし私はいつも感じて、それは自分のもので、その使命は子供たちの遊びの成長の過程を目撃することで、年 を重ねて、静かで静かで、これまで波で人気を取ったことがなくて、月の満月の欠乏に伴って上げ下げしたこと がありません。
平凡な少しも目立たなくて、私の海に対する想像で、私の人生に対する追求で、もしかすると、これは1つの生 まれつきの趣味の淡々とした女子の最大のあこがれです。
実は多くのレトロで、ノスタルジックなものが好きで、いつも感じて、過去のいくつかの小物は歳月の最も良い 記憶です。 昔もとても好きで、昔は本当に1つのすばらしい言葉で、昔の日の色が遅くなって、車、馬、メールはすべて遅 くて、一生ただ1人を爱することができます。 昔の白衣の少年もきれいで、太阳の下の横顔も十分に心の琴線に触れて、目は相対して、一生かもしれなくて、 昔のキャンパスの中で、爱情の最もすばらしい様子があります。
偏執と同じように、マイナーな人が好きな方が、いつも気が行きやすい。 まるで、道路の上空に縦横無尽に交錯する黒い線は、画一的な空よりも美しく、夕暮れ時の暗い黄色の明かりは 、赤みがかった街よりも魅力的だ。 私は思った:私が好きなのはただいくつかの人間の間の花火の気だけです。
海辺の近くに村があって、村は魚を売っていなくて、どの家の門の前にすべて桃の木、モクセイの木が植えて、 どの木の下にすべて1壇の塵封長年の酒を埋めて、酒は強くなくて、かえってすがすがしい香りが漂っています 。
また一年の春、子供は額の汗をぬぐって、無邪気に祖母に向かって笑った。娘は海辺の小さな板の上に出てきた 。一陣の風がそっと海辺に向かって吹いてきた。風の中に花びらが散って、娘の髪を乱した。風が吹いたところ に、誰かがゆっくりと歩いてきた。影が長く伸びて、娘の目に映っていた。
ツバキの花が咲いて、彼は彼女と海を見に来て、約束を破ることがなくて、彼女と海はすべて覚え ています。

LDARC 450x Wing .
This is the plug and play version with a flight control board .
Plug in a S bus Rx and go fly .

I have been so impressed by my 450x wings ( no flight control ) 2s Brush-less and 1s Brushed versions .. ( They fly great )
So I promised myself that as soon as the PNP was discounted I would buy one ..
And that was just recently .. Less than 100 ozzi bananas .
Hopefully get some more Rx ASAP .
If this thing flies stable and stability does a good job , I will put in a FPV camera .

Ooops . printing the wing right now . A long , long ............................ Long ! print time for the wing .

Like many, I just received a RadioMaster T16s a day ago - Second or Third batch, IDK. After having a first gen. Jumper T16 for awhile there's no real learning curve for me. Two or three of the buttons function are different and it only took a few minutes to grasp the changes. In less than a half hour, I had a model setup for the XK boards. The same model was duplicated for all with little changes made after assigning each model to a xk heli. I did it without opentx software - haven't connected via usb as yet. Got the amber sound pack and images to put on it and yet to back up the files on the micro card.

I had to open the RM t16s twice to mod the gimbals from left throttle to right throttle - so easy, I just smile. Then, I open it again to en-large the holes in the grid over the speaker that increased the sound output, again easy to do. I'm using the lipo from my jumper t16 for now and will try/use the 18650 li-ion later. I don't like the charging port at the bottom and looking to relocate it to the back. The side grips are different, so, will have to get use to a different grip.

I played around with both my modded k110s and my modded k130. Didn't felt much different than the jumper t16 and i'm not jumping up and down with excitement as it's not to much different than the jumper t16. My jumper t16 is the first gen and started having ribbon issues with a switch and the speaker sound. After fixing the sound three times, I left it without voice. So good to have voice again with the RM T16s. Already got a model for my fx070cp and will play with that soon.

Was it worth the 2 months wait and 130 usd. Yep...

Monty Python's Life of Brian ends with a happy tune: "Look at the bright side of life." There's even a cheery whistle. Now that I got my Black Magic pattern plane back in the air today, I can see the bright side of the tail damage done last week.

What made the recent grounding of my only pattern plane a bit gloomy is the upcoming contest next week. The only way I could continue practicing for the event was to fly my big 104" Extra 300. I had to set it up to respond very similarly to the pattern plane, so the transition back would not be hard. One of the items I changed was a new Flight Mode (FM3) to make the entry into the spin a bit easier. I could now make multiple changes to the control response with one switch. It worked great, but I forgot I had not copied the settings over to the pattern plane.

I got a big surprise today when I flipped to Mode 3 for the spin with my newly repaired pattern plane. There was no throttle control, no aileron, and the elevator went to 100% - full rate with little expo. I ended up snap rolling the plane into a spin. I regained control by switching back to Normal Mode.

I got the plane back on the runway and immediately found the error, then added the settings for the spin mode. The next flight went much smoother when I switched to the new Mode 3. No surprises!

Anyway, the new gear sets have been installed in the old Futaba S9650 servos that control both halves of the elevator. Although only one servo was damaged, I replaced the gears in both servos, since they were well worn. In the process of installing the refurbished servos I found one of the nylon brackets on a control horn had gotten worn and allowed too much free movement of the elevator. That also got replaced. Now, no more slop!

So, look at the bright side of life!

The Maiden Flight of my Parkzone F-27Q Stryker 943mm BNF (New / Old Stock) was a success!

Parkzone F-27Q Stryker 943mm BNF (New / Old Stock) Golden Hour Maiden Flight (4 min 39 sec)

I was fortunate enough to win this rare item on eBay a week ago. When I first saw this model 7 years ago at my local hobby shop, I was only a beginner, flying a Hobbyzone Champ, wishing I had the skills to fly it. I had passed it up at the time and had regretted it ever since. 7 years later, I came across this new / old stock on eBay and couldn't pass up the chance to have it in my fleet. And what an awesome 4-Channel wing this is! This flight goes through testing some of the basic maneuvers as well as knife edges, an inverted flat spin, and the boomerang.


1) Switched out the ESC EC3 connector to Deans.
2) Added satin tape to exposed leading edge of main wings.
3) Applied 2 spray coats of Minwax Satin-Finish Polycrylic.

Equipment, Setup, and Programming:

1) Transmitter - Spektrum DX8 (G2)
2) Receiver - Lemon LM0033 DSMX 7-Ch Diversity Stabilizer / Receiver
3) Gains - Aileron 8:30, Elevator 8:45, Rudder 8:45
4) DX8 Master Gain - Set to +3
5) Rates - Aileron 78% with 50% Expo, Elevator 80% with 48% Expo, Rudder 65% with 15% Expo
6) Lipo - Pulse 3S 2250mAh 45C (186 grams)
7) Prop Brake - Enabled
8) Mix - Throttle to Aileron Rate Set to -2% with an 85% Offset (to help counter the natural tendency of the subtle left roll while under throttle).
9) Throttle Timer - Set to 4 Minutes.
10) Hand Launch Throttle - 70%
