I used up my final piece of 3" body tube with a cute little A-7 corsair II. 22" wingspan, 24" length, 9.75 oz rtf with a 24mm E-6 rocket motor. Painting and panel lines are on, nose is a hand carved laminated block of depron that plugs into a 1" long by 2" diameter body tube glued into the front of the body tube to allow me access to the receiver and flight battery. Stickershock Vinyl put the finishing touch.

The Aurora 90 frame is made entirely of carbon and weighs 27 grams. The propeller protection is very stable and the FPV camera is protected very well. But the propellers and the original camera I found bad.
The Runcam MicroSwift CCD camera now sits on the Aurora 90 with a Tattu 75C 450mAh 3S LiPo. Totally fun and finally clean, clear picture. I'm using now the GemFan RotorX 2035BN propellers, which are much better and stronger.

My quad flew perfect until recently. I haven't changed anything. When I arm it idles fine but when I try to give it a little more throttle it maxes out. I fried 2 escs today. Fire and everything. I recently changed the pdb but that's it. Now every time I arm and give a little throttle it tries to go max throttle I just disarm. Can anyone please help

It's been far too long since I've posted something here... I've had my hands quite full over the past few months, in an attempt to catch up on things that I've not had time to do.

That's okay though, because I've returned once more.
I'm going to break the chain of positivity for just a few moments though, as there is something that needs to be quickly cleared up before I can jump back and follow up with past advancements and updates.

----------

Right, as some of you may know... I took a trip down to the Museum of the United States Air Force, over the Labor Day weekend.
Initially, my plans were to drop by the D.O.G.S. fly-in/Horizon RC Fest. This is where the story turns a bit sour.

Originally, I had figured that it would have gone just as previous years have... Unfortunately, it was not the case this time.
The first day was at the mercy of the weather, which is fully understandable, since we're all limited by that. I had noticed this year that the attendance was far lower than previous years. I found this rather strange, due to the location of the event, and the following.
There were unusually few vendors, as well as a minimal number of pilots.

"No problem there," I thought to myself. "It's likely just the poor weather conditions keeping people at home."
So, I leave at around noon. I come back the next morning to see little improvement in attendance.

To be fair, the weather was still overcast, and misty... So I still attributed it...Continue Reading

Hey readers,

I'm sincerely "Tired" of affiliate links... It's like 90% of the blog stream...

The Q58 is likely one of the smallest brushless micros to include fpv. I have found this quad to be good fun in the house, one of my "end the day" flyers. The Q49, also appears in the video, while similarly designed, I didn't have the same flight experience. The primary difference is the difference in thrust, which is tied to the reduced prop size needed to accomplish the 49mm dimensions.

With several 3D printed pieces being the singular fallback. We find after a number of impacts we will likely need to make adjustments in securing the nylon screws. My experience with this motors does not dissuade me from building or flying more quads with the RS BR0703 motors despite the lack of bearings.

I am finally getting my 'work shop' together
...more like a tool pile lol

I AM SO DANG HAPPY because I successfully removed the bearings from my oily FA-72 (#1) using a $30 1000W Top Flite Heat gun, oil, blocks of wood, rubber mallet, and socket wrench parts.

This is a big deal to me. I have never done such a thing--it was easy.

No Arbor Press needed, so far.
It would be nice. Maybe later.
I could have used an oven but prefer a heat gun.

Now i will give this engine a decent cleaning. I bought it used--it looked clean but was filled with some stinky oil--probably Klotz.
The 2 bearings are crap but thats okay.

I remember looking at the nitro glow 4-strokes about 10 years ago. I admired them but found thier price and complexity intimidating.

After seeing the ultra-complex full scale aero engines used during WWII, i find these little 4-strokes much simpler.

These 4-strokes are fun, sound rad, have better mpg, and can last a long time on one glow plug. Piston Rings are ideal for low cost. The engines can last a lifetime with proper care.

Used engines can be affordable. Often they may need some TLC. This is where the specific tools become handy

It may be no surprise that new bearings are needed with used engines. Unless the seller said otherwise...

Bearings are not a small job. It becomes much easier once ya get some experience

The Bfight 210 is a solid FPV racer. With 267 grams nice light and well built. All components are up-to-date like the 30A DSHOT 600 ESC's or the 25-200mW video transmitter, which is configurable via the spark. The FPV camera is a 1177 CCD camera with 2.1mm lens for super visibility which is very good when landing and flying. Everything is already preconfigured with current Betaflight 3.1.7 and blHeli 16.6 Simply bind to your transmitter and fly.
A camera mount is missing, but it can be used by Wizard X220S. And there is no Beeper, which you have to be soldered.

I just touched down less than an hour ago, after waiting for a lull in the wind. The forecast initially said winds up to 16 mph. OK, no problem. It's always good to get some IMAC practice in less than ideal conditions, since the weather can be equally bad on contest days.

After taking off I immediately ran into turbulent air. It tossed my big Extra around like a plaything. I had to nose into the wind hard to maintain a vertical up line. As I slowed to a stop for the hammerhead the plane drifted about a hundred feet downwind. It was a wild ride!

After landing the weather report said winds were 16 gusting to 24. I was lucky to get this bird safely back on the ground. (I can't imagine what living through Hurricane Harvey was like. It's hard to appreciate good weather until you're stuck in the bad.)

I waited two hours for the winds to calm down a bit before making a second flight, then called it a day.

Figured no-one would get a 4k video of it, because it was too difficult for the current generation. No-one did, except for 1 Korean professor who came around the world with a very large telescope.

The panning shot was fully automated. It claims to have an accoustic reduction gear but uses a DC motor, so it could be a bit of marketing wank. In the automated pan, it's remarkable to see the detail of the moon's mountains & the entire firey surface of the sun. Only with a shade in space can these details be seen. The atmosphere scatters too much light from the sun's center for a ground based shade to work. It makes it almost worth getting a 4k monitor.



Among other predictions, no-one got a locked down timelapse from a quad copter. No-one got a 360 video from a mountain top. In the coming weeks, a few other timelapses of Mount Jefferson appeared which were better than the lion kingdom's.

Once again a Walkera Mod...



I wanted a smaller headset that could accommodate glasses. I've looked around and most are of the refrigerator box type like my current headplays. I found some Walkera Goggle 4s on Feebay for $60 that I think were used for a review or something because the clear plastic wrap was still on them and they looked as though they were never used. They came in the original box which also looked new

Anyway I tried them out and found the following:

1. Not comfortable on the cheek bones
2. A lot of light leaking in from around the face pads, vents in the sides, around the split in the middle of the two halves and also through the white plastic.
3. The screen looked distorted and kind of bland
4. The receiver was Blah... Even with my patches, 12 turn helical!!!, Airblades, Mad Mushroom, aomways and the TrueRC X2 air antenna.... it still wasn't very good
5. Battery is not changeable!!!

But...

I did find some positives
1. Light on the head
2. Nice form factor
3. Voltage display on the screen that blinks to let you know when the battery is close to dying
4. Overall nice looking

As with all things Walkera... you have to Mod their stuff to make it right. This goes back all the way to 2006 when I first flew their 4#3 copters. Nothing Walkera makes is 100% done and nothing they make is fully thought out. They are great for coming up with nice looking designs but usually fail in execution, customer service and quality control. If Walkera was...Continue Reading

This is the Unboxing, Maiden Flight, & Review video for the Blade F-27 FPV UMX RC Plane.

Blade F-27 FPV UMX RC Plane Unboxing, Maiden Flight, & Review (16 min 59 sec)

In the video I unbox, fly it with onboard FPV footage via my Fatshark Dominator V3 FPV Goggles and review it after the flight for a comprehensive video about this plane. This plane could also be called the UMX Stryker FPV.

Here are my review notes:

Pros:
- Uses my favorite batteries
- Flies nice
- The take-off feature is great
- Handles wind well
- Has 150mw FPV system used by the Blade Torrent 110 FPV Racer
- Looks nice and has plastic protectors for belly landing
- Has new foam for added durability

Cons:
- The radio setup with my Spektrum DX6 was different than shown in the manual to shift between flight modes.
- Battery bay is too short to adjust for CG and nose heaviness
- The recommended settings for the take-off feature may cause some crashes.
- The camera arrived very dirty and has ok camera quality
