This tool will make it easy for you to make a perfect CA hinge.
Also will be a standard hinge making tool for all Craycle models.

In addition, a hinge design has been made that you can use for your own balsa and foam models.

You decide which flexible material you will use as a hinge. You can use special materials produced for this, or you can use an easily accessible material such as nylon film (for example: acetate film).

Note: You must print the Hinge Maker at a layer height of 0.15mm.

Follow us for the next projects.

0,4 mm nozzle daimeter.
0,15 mm layer height.
Hinge Maker = PLA/PETG/ABS etc.
Hinge = Only TPU or flex filaments.

Here is a 3" tether car powered by a Cox Tee Dee .010 engine.
The body is a Tootsie Toy piece. Had to do a good bit of grinding on it
to get it ready. I messed up on the cylinder opening. Decided to make a
gear choice change after I had cut the opening out.
I fabricated the frame and fuel tank from K&S brass stock pieces.
Used solder to hold it all together.
Gears and axels are slot car parts.
The wheels are Dubro tail 3/4" airplane tail wheels drilled and
tapped to fit the axles.
The brass screws are 1-72 thread 1/4" long.
I'll fill the cylinder opening and paint the body one of these days.

Halloa people

first video on an (for most) unknown radio / radio-brand and I've combined it's maiden with a first plane of the ZOHD Drift...
The Drift isn't a new-new plane ofcourse.. it IS new to me though :P

Soooo a Wfly ET16S radio.. Ever heard of the brand?
Also: it was sent to me for free.. Just so you know...

Let's at least see if the plane + radio combo results in a flight

New Radio + New Plane + New Camera ! :O What could go wrong :P (14 min 17 sec)

Yep Les Amis,
SMO or NAKED ? That is the question ! J'ai en test depuis quelques temps la petite Insta 360 SMO qui a été développée en collaboration avec BetaFPV. J'avais quelques aprioris sur le fait de devoir passer par un logiciel de stabilisation mais tout compte fait, quand on compare à la difficulté d'obtenir ou de se fabriquer une Gopro Naked et à sa fragilité, c'est vrai que la SMO est un excellent compromis niveau rapport qualité prix et utilisation. Donc j'adopte aisément cette nouvelle petite caméra pour mes prochains vol en HD, que ce soit sur des petits ou gros racers. La coque solide et les lentilles de protection sont très rassurants en cas de petits crashs ou contacts ( j'en suis déjà à ma deuxième Naked et un objectif changé sur la deuxième ! ). En bref, je valide ! ... Prenez soin de vous et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

Feathers DLG , a look in the box (4 min 7 sec)

Came in the mail today .
Finally got one at a price I was prepared to pay .
Projected weight is high !
Also the Feathers needs building and covering !

I dare say that the UMX Whipit might be a far better option for 99% of the people .
It's lighter , it's built - add a battery / do a bind , set it up per instructions and go have fun .
And it's very close on the money , except that with the feathers you still need the stuffing ( Rx / servos ) , oh and to build the feathers .
Hmmmmm ,

Now that I have seen the feathers in the flesh ( well the kit ) , I would's highly recommend the whip .
Unless like me , you just gota have it .
Better bring your kit building A game for this one !
The better it's built - the better it will fly .

1440p yields more image data on a 4:3 sensor camera, and we can still format to 16:9 without losing anything. This video walks you through it:
