Halloa RC poeple..

I recently compiled a video for people that are new to self-building (or maybe RE-building) multirotors.. In this reasonably short part of the build I'll be updating the firmware on the ESC's, and checking if the motors all run the correct way
And if you Are new to this, there will be tips & tricks in the video you want to know about..

Hope this helps you out!

Yes

Got the Bee 490mm Flying wing airborne today .
Had some pesky drone invading my airspace but thankfully they flew some where else when I waved them off .

C of G

I highly recommend starting around 100mm from the nose .. At 110mm the wing is very lively ( CG is a little far back ).
My elevator was at 40% Rates and 60% Expo
Ailerons were 50% Rates and 40% Expo

Launch Control

Just hammer that throttle , trouble starts when you don't have enough power . Starting too soft on the engine power made the wing roll and a few times bounce off the ground . ( I think I killed my ESC from that )
So yeah , feed the motor some power and it launches fine .

Trim - Depending on your motor angle , you probably want some up elevator ...


By golly it flies . And what a lively little wing it is too . Possibly not very noob friendly as it turns uber tight @ 110mm CG .. At 100m CG it tracks much better and still turns .

It flies fast and it flies slow , you may wish to set up rates if you want to fly fast . Last thing you want is a fast wing that turns faster than your reflexes . Which the Bee is very capable off .

I have just confirmed a faulty ESC and will replace it . So next time I take the bee out I will hopefully get some video , especially as it is trimmed out now .

For a long time, I've been waiting for Horizon Hobby to come out with an updated mCPX BL. It's finally here! Horizon Hobby has revived their super successful mCPX BL in the form of an mCPX BL2, which now includes Safe-Z mode and Safe mode. Some people have reported having some trouble setting up the Safe-Z mode and the Safe mode on this helicopter and encountering glitches during flight. I'm not sure whether it makes any difference, but I did avoid the Safe modes and put everything into 3D mode. To get 3D mode all the time, I assigned my DX9's channel 5 to a 3-way switch and then put all the switch values to -100. Aside from going full 3D, I set up my DX9 by the book, and my mCPX BL2 flies just fine. It's unclear to me whether suppressing the Safe modes has prevented the glitching others have seen.

I've had a few months to become accustomed with this model. So far, I've been using my mCPX BL2 primarily as a backup for my Align Trex 150X since they can use the same batteries. For a long time, I've been posting that I like my Trex 150X more than my mCPX BL2. But I have to admit, I've been really enjoying flying my mCPX BL2. Even though the Trex 150X is built like a bigger helicopter, this mCPX BL2 is really growing on me!

Although there are batteries available for the mCPX BL2, I am using my old Align 300 mAh packs from my 150X. They're a perfect fit in the battery tray and they relieved me from having to buy a bunch of new packs. I put a couple of small...Continue Reading

Get the Eachine EV300D FPV goggles
from [CZ] EU warehouse Coupon: BG333D - https://www.banggood.com/custlink/Dvmv6QZ4r0
Fast delivery from EU warehouse
The EV300D has new 4: 3 very good LCOS displays that can also be switched as 16: 9. The lenses are adjustable to diopter +3 to -8.
Two diversity receivers are installed with SMA connection. A rapidFiRE module can also be used on the left in the shaft. The picture in the goggles is really good, large (42 FOV) and even reduced noise. With the new firmware, the latency has now been improved on PAL cameras from 100ms to 30ms. NTSC cameras get still 90ms what is bad.

Couldn't find the type of frame I wanted readily available. Was looking for a lightweight, high-performance, "True-X," Stretch-X, or Hybrid-X Micro frame with HD video capability in a dual-stack configuration.

So, I designed my own! My first design - the TMac Diamondback Rattler!

Please, let me know what you think. Like it, don't like it? Reasons for either? Let me know! I go over all the spec's dimensions, and thoughts behind the purposeful design wit a flight demo at the end. Check out the hyperlinked Table of Contents in the video description if you'd like.

I personally am very happy with how it turned out and it flies outstandingly! 🤩

In 1987 I built this Avro Anson for the F4C world champs ,at the time I was really into the power competitions era. I thought at that time this was the top end of my building endeavours ,I since learnt it was simply the next step to build more scale models .

All -

A long time friend had this Skychief and was obtained from him. The engine was in good shape except the crankshaft threads were destroyed and many original parts were missing. A parts Skychief was obtained from an RC groups fellow member and that engine provided the original needle valve / fuel tank assembly , crankshaft , spark ignition timer. The refurbished Skychief pleases me. The crankcase is very light zinc or such pot metal ??? the cylinder is very heavy cast iron. The piston has one ring of about 1/8" width. The piston was soaked for a week in ATF to help loosen the stuck piston ring on my Skychief.

Best regards,

jeff

Backstory:

I am creating this thread because I recently learned that URC has officially retired and all my "Build Project" threads on URC are long gone and will never come back

I will do my best recreate what I remember from my thread on URC and share this information here on RCG.

"PROJECT 21" was the very first 1/8 4WD SCT conversion made by Tim Martin and TheJANG at URC in late 2009, here are the original videos created:

Test Flight - King Kong / LDARC Tiny Wing 450 - Testing It's Slow Flight Capability

Here is a link to the Video:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSxabJpLxIU

I always immediately test how fast an aircraft will fly, however, slow flight capability is very important as well.
My favorite aircraft are those that are aerobatic and have a wide flight envelope.
Let's see how slowly this one will fly ;-)

Back in the 1980's (or maybe 90's...it's all starting to meld), my flying bud Neal and I got a couple of the newly released Cox R/C PT-19's. Made of molded foam, these are good-looking planes, with moderate performance from it's .049 Ranger (coincidentally, also the name of the full scale PT's engine).

We DID experience problems with getting the CG correct...even moving all the gear as far forward as we could, the model was still a bit tail-heavy, and would snap inverted if it's pilot got too frisky with pitch input. A chunk of lead ballast fixed the problem, but gave the .049 still more weight to drag through the sky.

I finally decided to "make the ballast work", and bolted a Medallion RC .09 to it's snout, spaced forward by a block of ply, and fed by a metal wedge tank suspended behind the firewall. The .09 was the exhaust band type, and worked really well...helping with the balance problem, AND turning the PT into a mean little ankle biter.

Neal followed suit...though his may have been powered by an O.S. .10, and we put on many impromptu Sunday pylon races, or dog fights (it was often difficult to tell the difference), with both planes amazingly surviving our crazy flying.

I'd like to get my old relic going for this year's S.M.A.L.L., again with it's .09 engine. The foam has survived in great shape, but the harder plastic parts are turning into cookie crumbs and will take some shoring up to be airworthy.
