Hello all, just wanted to give you a quick background about myself. I'm sixty years young now and a lifelong modeler. I have built everything that flies from indoor rubber power to full scale EAA planes. I've had a 35 year career in the UAV industry at AAI/ Textron systems working in the design and development lab for UAV's. I also had a 15 tenure at GPA hobbies which I purchased with two of my friends but due to my wife's declining health I sold my interest back to the widow of the former owner. Turbine jets and EDF planes are my main interest now but still build from scratch many sizes of models but have stopped flying glow power due to the costs of fuel locally and now use gas or electric power for my smaller planes.
I also have a group of friends that I travel with to swap meets and we have been liquidating the estates of friends so you might see some things up for sale in the fuel engine section and kits. We go to the Westminster Md., Lebanon Pa., and Hamburg Pa. Swap meets each year. Since the advent of the Internet our yearly trips to the WRAM and Toledo Shows have stopped as of four years ago.

X-Frame Racer with HD Video Camera! All parts listed! Today I build and fly my latest Micro FPV Race Drone with the Caddx Tarsier V2 HD camera that allows me to capture HD video AND at the same time have great FPV video real-time during flight with minimal latency. I've gone to great lengths to find the lightest weight dual-stack X-frame for this build. If you know of another one, please share it with all of us!

Hey man, maybe you know Dynam,but havn't heard our branch Brand- Detrum Tech. She seriously on electronic remote control systems. Now introduce her transmitter :

-Adopting 2.4GHz direct sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) and multiple frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) technology, the R/C system has high receiving sensitivity and strong anti-interference capability, can support a stable operating for more than 1km on the ground and more than 1.6km in the air.

- Adopting wireless chips, with extended power amplifier (PA) and low noise amplifier (LNA) can extremely improve the system output power and receiving sensitivity.

- Using all-band antenna on transmitter. The transmitting efficiency is greatly improved.

- Can experience a smooth flight operation by using the 4096 section precision sticks and selecting four stick modes.

- Achieving 2.6ms response time, even all channels it acts synchronously.

- USB upgrade function always keeps your GAVIN-6C the latest program.

- Support Fail Safe function, which could predefine the servo position by transmitter when receiver out of control.

- Trainer function make a skilled instructor can teach a student with fly skills.

- Can be used to set the programmable item of the flight controller for airplane.

This is how I (hopefully) increase safety by splitting power supplies. Using the otherwise unused ESC BEC power for non-essential servos to preserve power for the RX and essential controls, eg should the retracts jam.

I just finished this today, an original design balsa profile for electric power. I designed this years ago for glow, and have built dozens of them. With the advancements of foam airplanes, I don't see these balsa profiles as being as useful as they were 20 years ago, but I got bored and wanted to build something, so here it is.

600 squares
44 oz AUW including 3S 2600 lipo.
Thrust 45 motor and speed control, made for the P.A. Katana 52
Savox servos
Falcon 14 by 7 carbon prop

It should fly like the others I've made, but since its loaded a little lighter ( 10.5 oz per sq ft) should have a bit more hang time

The C-3 design was derived from the Aeronca C-2. Introduced in 1931, it featured room for a passenger seated next to the pilot. Powered by a new 36-horsepower (27-kilowatt) Aeronca E-113 engine, the seating configuration made flight training much easier and many Aeronca owners often took to the skies with only five hours of instruction. Llargely because of the C-3's predictable flying characteristics. Both the C-2 and C-3 are often described as "powered gliders" because of their gliding ability and gentle landing speeds. It was almost impossible to make a hard landing with an Aeronca because the pilot could easily see his wheels approach the runway. This highly prefabricated kit belongs in the "super scale competition" models category. Once built, the airframe is extremely light and clean but still able to withstand the high loads and stresses associated with aerobatic flight. The manufacturer uses the latest construction techniques including Laser CNC cutting to achieve high strength and low weight. Each part and every detail are meticulously made.

Wingspan: 51.25"
Length: 28.75"
Weight: 25-26 oz. (710-740g)
Channels: 4,5

Will start soon.....

Halloa people

recovered from the onslaught of calories over the last month I hope?

The Diatone / Mamba quad stacks have amassed a Great reputation over the last years. They have proven to be both affordable and good performers.. Don't get me wrong: even the best stacks Can fail.. I have at least 10 quads with Mamba stacks, and over the last year I have had 1 4-in-1 ESC fail after a few flights..

AND.. they just released several updates / upgrades! The first one I got my hands on is the F722s flight controller + F50 Pro ESC stack

DustOff #9 - "Glue & Fly Series" F22 Micro V2 - Rocket Ship to the Moon ;-)

Here is a link to the Video:

#GroundControlRC #GlueAndFly #ScratchBuildPlanes #F22Micro

Wind was 3mph-5mph (5kmh-8kmh) again and I had some Trim work to do after Centering my Servos.
I had not know about Sub-Trim when I first setup this Micro Parkjet.
After Centering my Servos with Sub-Trim it was time to Trim it out again.
Now, it's all Trimmed out and flies nice and level at cruise speed and the Rolls are completely Axial ;-)
I have absolutely no Trim in the Transmitter at all, it's all Mechanical Trim ;-)

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Intermediate to Advanced.
Intermediate setup is a 2S Power System with 10 points more Dual-Rate than on a 3S Setup.
Advanced setup is a 3S Power System.
It's very docile on a 2S Power System, Fast & Aerobatic with a 3S Power System.

This is an adapter to connect an analog diversity module to the DJI Digital FPV goggles outside by cable. Clean solution, but you should install the current DJI update to at least v01.00.02.00 so you get very low latent times up to 20ms. So you don't need any other analog FPV glasses anymore !!
A video module is simply plugged in here and you can fly analog tiny whoops, toothpicks.

If you're unfamiliar with drones (or even unfamiliar), reading all the words in the industry and expecting to fully understand it can be daunting. That's why we are here to help with the Drone Vocabulary Guide! The goal is to make sure you understand what you are reading, especially the specifications.


A device for sensing and measuring 3-dimensional acceleration mainly used to help stabilize drones. Usually, these are built into the flight computer.

Automatic leveling

Enables drones to automatically travel in uniform flight.

Autonomous flight

No human intervention is required to complete the flight of the system.


Beyond sight. The operator cannot see any flight of the drone with independent vision (binoculars, cameras, etc.), including when the operator cannot tell which direction the drone is facing.

Coverage area

The area that a drone can cover during flight. For many drones, this will change depending on the payload configuration.

Cruising speed

Speed ​​of the drone during the flight cruise phase.


The ability to see, sense or detect air traffic or other hazards and take action to prevent collisions.

flight duration

Drone flight time. This is usually the longest time when viewing drone specifications. When scheduling a task, this is the time required to complete the task.


Ground control station. GCS is usually the interface that operators use to control or issue...Continue Reading

So I remember around 1974-1980"s in some R/c magazine about a high wing kit that somebody converted to a mechanism to release systematically fake bombs under the wings. Did I dream this article? I've looked in my magazines without success. Does anyone remember this short article?
