Due to a shoulder injury, I have not flown a single contest this year. I have looked in my records, I competed in the first F3J contest in 2004 and my first F3K contest in 2006. Since then I have flown every year multiple contests.

Thus this year is definitely an exception, and I feel that something is missing and that flying in contests was giving me a well needed break from the daily routines and troubles at work. To add insult to injury, I was qualified for this years F3K worlds team. This is the third world championship for which I had qualified, but was then forced to resign for reasons such as work or now injury. Sometimes life throws big monkey wrenches...

However, despite being disappointed, the freed time lets me reflect why I do compete with toyplanes. It has become the sole purpose while I build planes and fly them. I do not do leisure flying, it is either practice with a specific purpose (turnarounds, launhing, etc) or it is contest flying. How could I become so focused on just contest flying?

It is an interesting question, for which I have no clear answer. What I do know that I had some of the most fun I ever had with toyplanes when competing. Interestingly, I also had most fun at the first contests in a new category or country. I would say I had absolutely measured the most fun when I came to the US, was unknown to everyone, but was able to kick some butt. The first major contest was at the Bruce in 2010, and I met some legends like Bruce, Paul...Continue Reading

Picture showing length.
When mounted the retracted strut would pinch the airline to extend the gear. I sent both units into Robart and had the airline nipples changed from straight to 90* nipples. It solved the problem nicely. Both units mounted but never flown. The model only sat on the gear once before it was removed. I lost interest in the model and traded off the airframe.

Im crossing over to a new frame. The Source One is affordable and i like the open source nature of the project, 3d print files should be plentiful, TBS is a very reliable brand also...

First pack, i did break and arm, but i had ordered some extras, SWAPPING the new one in was very quick. less than five minutes. one of the screws does screw into the stack, but it didnt really upset the stack when i swapped in the fix at the field (normal a do at home thing for me)


I hit a metal awning and fried my fc during session two... Swapped my bardwell v1 from my old quad frame into the Source One build...

Flies well for my purposes so far. Hopefully the first broken arm wont be a repeated thing. I basically hit a small tree and rolled...

As we all know that RadioLink product family is getting larger, sometimes we may get confused about the compatibility of different radios and receivers.

Here is a short list and hope it makes more clear.
  • R7FG -- RC4GS(After 20180101),RC6GS(3-position switch),T8FB
  • R12DS -- AT9,AT9S,AT10,AT10II
  • R12DSM -- AT9,AT9S,AT10,AT10II
  • R9DS -- AT9,AT9S,AT10,AT10II
  • R6DS -- AT9,AT9S,AT10,AT10II
  • R6DSM -- AT9,AT9S,AT10,AT10II
  • R8EF -- T8FB,RC4GS,RC6GS

  • R6F -- RC4G,RC3S,RC4GS,T8FB,RC6GS

450x Maiden ( Small Wing ) (5 min 8 sec)



a) Originally it was my plan to go XK A800 flight board and motor ( Matched set ) . Unfortunately the control board did not want to function correctly when I tried to mix the two built in servos .
b) Control board is WLtoys F949 , and it does not support the XK A800 brushed motor . The wing lacks power very badly .
c) Turn too tight and the wing falls out of the sky ( That lack of power )
d) I did not expect the wing to fly at all , as there is no stabilisation . But it does fly .
e) Wing flies surprisingly well
f) Wing needs more power !!!!!! Will be re-motored ASAP . Currently could not pull the skin off a rice pudding .
g) The wing just has enough power to fly - JUST . This is my fault .


Update :

Have soldering iron ..
Swapped out the motor for a small quad motor ..
This means a lot less weight ...
So the battery needs re locating .
As pictured looks to be the go ..
Another week of bad weather ahead , so hopefully wont take a week to re fly ..
So this was how I was going to do the second one ...
Hmmm , so what to do with the other wing ?
