I have over 200 flights on this Airframe and the Foam is starting to get a little weak where the Wing Plate meets the Fuselage.
I did not design this Airframe to have a Wing Spar, however, I did update the Plans to include a Wing Spar.
Needless to say, in order to get another 200 flights from this Airframe a Wing Spar is neccessary.
I Retrofitted a Carbon Slat Wing Spar (1mm x 3mm) into this Airframe.
This is my 1st Test Flight after this Modification.

Let's see if I did Good, or if I did Bad ;-)

Here's what it cost me to Build this Parkjet ;-)

Ground Control F22 Mini V2 BNF Build $49.01 | PNF Build $38.42

That's pretty darn Cheap I'd say ;-)

I'd like to see a Factory Plane that inexpensive that can Fly this well ;-)

The skill level needed for this Parkjet is Beginner to Intermediate.
Beginner setup is a 2S Power System with a 6x4 Prop.
Intermediate setup is a 3S Power System with a 6x3 Prop.
It's a great Trainer on a 2S Power System, Fast & Acrobatic with a 3S Power System.

Plans are available to Youtube Subscribers & Patrons!

If you would like a copy of the Plans & Associated Documents send an email to [email protected]
In the Email Subject enter: GFS F22 Mini V2 Plans
We will get them to you as soon as we can.
You're going to love it ;-)


See you in the Air!

Mods to my Whip .

Was it maybe 15 months ago I got the Whip ? Anyhow I have a bad back and the whip was medicinal ( get me out and being more active ) . At one time my back was so bad I could barely walk 100 meters . Now I can walk a few Kilometres to a local park and throw the whip around for 30 minutes to 60 minutes and walk back home and not be in brutal pain . ( A little sore perhaps )

Anyhow , early on I came to the conclusion I needed a launch peg to make life easier on me ( less painful ) . Already I was noticing a lot of surface stretch marks on the wing . And I thought without strengthening I would surely rip the wing apart if I put in a lunch peg .

Modified wing :
I removed the plastic hardware , the centre of the wing was glasses ( lightest glass from hobbyking ) . I also glassed the tip I wanted to put the launch peg on . Glassing also was used to secure the carbon rods in the middle of the wing . ( Mine were lose and there was a lot of centre flex )
After glassing I used laminating film ( 0.04mm = lets get that right ) . I now had a really strong and much stiffer wing than before . To counter the added weight the plastic wing hardware was given the heave ho and I cut up an ice cream container to make some pads for the wing screws .
I also added a counter weight on the opposite wing tip ( not sure this was needed )
Now I had a wing I was sure would handle peg launching .

POD :
Strengthening the wing just meant that energy would...Continue Reading

The reporter learned from the provincial traffic police corps highway detachment that the provincial traffic police corps highway detachment took the lead in enabling drone air inspections in the jurisdiction, and the drones focused on capturing traffic violations such as emergency lane parking and big car occupation. This is the first time that the high-speed traffic police department of our province has enabled drones to participate in highway traffic management.
UAV inspection duty is mainly used for aerial photography to observe road traffic congestion and capture traffic violations. According to the police who used the professional training of the UAV in the early stage, in the scope of the radiation coverage of the drone, it is possible to find where to shoot, and all kinds of violations of traffic rules and road safety can not escape its law. The trajectory of all vehicles and the number plate of the vehicle can be taken very clearly. For some motor vehicles that do not follow the prescribed lanes, illegal lanes for illegal lanes, and emergency lanes, they can be captured, providing strong evidence for the traffic police department to be punished according to law; and capturing and exposing some illegal activities such as retrograde vehicles. Elimination of blind spots in road enforcement.
In addition to the use of drones to capture traffic violations such as emergency lanes, the most important thing is to use drones to view road traffic congestion and traffic accident scenes, to provide timely and accurate information support for slow blocking and smooth operation. In the event of a traffic accident causing congestion, the traffic police can not arrive at the first time, the drone first arrives at the incident, and the scene is transmitted to the rear for the first time, according to the actual situation, the next step is given, and at the same time, The traffic police will have a more comprehensive understanding of the traffic accident scene and provide a basis for accurately handling the accident.

no more

It's now a RC glider ..

https://www.banggood.com/100cm-Wings..._warehouse=USA

It's blowing a Northerly Gale at the moment ..

But early this morning I took it into the back yard for a quick and dirty CG check with a Zippy 350 .

It glided across the back yard like a dream and smacked the brick wall

I havent glued the motor , so no damage .

But looks very promising .

I've recently completed my review of the happymodel larva-x and have also covered off
  • Setup
  • Custom PID tune
  • Custom filters
  • Durability tests
  • Comparison of onboard DVR to goggle DVR

It's a great little quad but there are some durability question marks around the motors in particular and as you can see in my review, Happymodel are already working on a response. That aside it's a great value, fast, nimble and very quiet ultra light micro 'toothphick' that is well suited to park flying and other environments.

Very smooth and quiet running transmission with longitudinally mounted motor. Completely encapsulated, no exposed gears. The UFRC Growler GX1 is almost as quiet as a small 1/10th scale car! This is particularly due to the spiral cut bevel gears and helical cut spur gears. The positive connection of the gears on the intermediate shaft is designed as a profiled shaft based on the cycloids of higher level.
