So many times I have been restricted to sitting in front, at a fixed location , looking into a FPV screen to do my flying , especially take off and landings.
Also there are times when the model has unknowingly flown behind a obstical and signal and video is lost.
So why not have the FPV screen attached to you and easily have line of sight available to you within a second or two.
Also in some flying sites it is not practical to set up a FPV ground station easily.
The best attribute is having line of sight and the fpv screen available in the blink of an eye and it being portable.
Unlike fpv goggles, you have the best of both views of your model without taking off goggles and trying to find where your model id in the sky.

Until recently, a NAN Omega languished on my bench, partially completed. Truth be told, it had migrated off the bench into storage for many moons, a victim of my distraction by other projects and commitments.

Happily, things have changed. The Omega has been completed and flown. It was my first all-composite model. I can share a few pictures, impressions, and a lesson learned the hard way.

Tonight is the beginning. I'll jot down these few thoughts and add some pictures. In the coming days, I'll come back to round out the report. Stay tuned....Continue Reading

Really hasn't been a great week , that's for sure . We are right in the middle of a cold / rainy front that has lasted a little too long .
Today was no exception , overcast and a little overly windy .

Still . I had an itch to get the CG tests over and done with + a little trimming !

I had all my control surfaces set to minimum throws ( furthest hole on the control horn )

I was using the Nanotech 460 2s battery .

First Chuck showed me that for such slow gliding I did not have enough elevator , so I went for the shortest hole on the control horn for maximum throw .
This was better . So I tried a very gentle powered glide ( maybe 10% throttle ) and this showed the elevator to be a little touchy now . I gave the elevator some 50% expo and this really smoothed things out .

The CG looks to be about right for me and I have not adjusted anything else ( Ruder / ailerons ) , only the elevator .
The wind did not really help at all . But it looks like the Firstar will fly on minimum power .
I can really see this model crawling along in calm conditions at maybe 20% throttle or possibly less . And there really is enough power to ROG ( Rise off ground ) .. I tried , but the ground was too rough where I was . On a smooth surface , it should not be an issue .

Wow , 3 new models to play with .. Really looking forward to a spell of decent weather .

Looks like they are going to make the Apollo XI flying field an AMA sanctioned field if it opens again. Please stop calling the airport, AMA and VallyFlyers while they work this out.

If the field is AMA sanctioned, the good part is...
1) We get to fly again.

Not sure if this is bad or not yet...
1) I fly VTOL airplanes. *Not yet sure if this will be allowed at an AMA sanctioned field? This is my main concern.
2) Flying there will no longer be free. You'll have to be an AMA memeber 75$ at least a year. *I'm an AMA member so no problem for me there.
3) Field will have someone there from sun up to sun down to police the field. *Not yet sure if this is a good or bad thing. I'm fine with that as long as I can fly my VTOL airplanes from the main runway. I see a possible issue with aircraft weight. Under a certain weight, 2lbs I think, you have to fly at the north corner of the field that is much smaller. It's to small for me to make a turn with the VTOL convergence in stability mode. This section of the field might also disappear if the field is AMA sanctioned?

With a budget 450mAh 2s battery , using rubber bands to hold it in place .

a) The CG is a little rearward . Both Ele and Ailerons were touchy ..
b) Ele was already @ 50% rates as anything higher would cause binding
c) Ailerons were 100%

I added 40% Expo to the elevator and it smoothed things out really nicely .
The Ailerons were set to 60% rates and 40% Expo and ended up being a little soft . ( I might try 70-30 before I maiden )

Glides - Oh does the Ezio glide ? Yes it does . I was actually quite impressed by it's glide qualities .
Even with a bit of a rearward CG once you got a glide angle there was no need for corrections and the Ezio just did it on it's own a little like a FF model .
Whilst the Ezio was a PITA out of the box , it looks like it it will fly just fine ( Looks like from the CG glide tests )

Still dont like the prop , 7A and so little thrust ...
Speaking off 7A ..
Read a lot of complaints about the 6A ESC and when I looked at mine ..
Looks like there has been a upgrade to a 8A ESC with 10A burst ...

rudder,dive plane用サーボのマウントを作り取り付け。
バラストタンクとの境から分離できるようにするので、前方から押さえ板をねじ留めしてサーボを 固定する。

thruster pumpは、今回は細いケーシングにする。
アルミパイプにロウを塗り、シュリンクチューブを被せてからFRPでパイプを作れば、抜きやす いだろう。

I have always love the look of BF-109F. Though many favor the desert scheme. I still love this winter scheme for its high contrast against the background where I fly and resistance to “gatoring” from exposure to the sun.

Some pictures to share!...Continue Reading

Full review can be found here:

Here is my summary and recommendation taken from the article:

The Sailfly-X is a very low cost "toothpick-class" micro brushless quadcopter from Happymodel, the same company that released the popular Snapper7 and Mobula7 micro quadcopters. It is well equipped with propellers, flight battery and even a spare canopy. It is ultralight meaning it can achieve high performance even with small batteries.

The quad is very well balanced component-wise and offers excellent control and power on 2s and outstanding power on 3s. The light weight comes about from the simplified components namely the main board which includes flight controller, 4xescs and a receiver plus an all-in-one vtx-camera. Being lightweight it has excellent durability from my testing so far. A further advantage of the low weight and high thrust is the exceptional flight time - a low cost 2s 300mah battery offered strong performance for 4-5 minutes of flying time.

This is a very easy quad to recommend - it offers breathtaking performance given the size, is extremely durable and offers exceptional flight time. This is even before we consider the price which around $88 at full retail which is remarkable and worth buying just for components to use on you own build (components which are not often discounted at time of review...). One of the sacrifices made to

Reviewed ten years ago.

A faithful, fun model afterwards despite a hard landing.'s back!

My Wings Maker Wingman II, reviewed here in 2009 and again in 2011 as a test bed for a new GWS servo has been sitting for far too long.

It's now back. The fuselage and wing were replaced after a hard landing (the parts were too cheap to justify fixing the old ones), it was flown a few times after that and was relegated to a garage shelf.

I'd swapped in a Thunder Tiger .40 at some point, but it needed work, not to mention parts. The needle valve had an o-ring reduced to goo and the retaining ratchet broke. In went the original Thunder Tiger once I freed up the crank and carb.

Except for a new prop for safety's sake, a new fuel tank, new lines and guidance now provided by a Hitec Flash 8 radio, it's the same as when I parked it. I also have to thank a member of the club for giving me a new glow plug! I flooded the engine while filling it and I lost the gasket when I went to empty it with the starter. Darn thing went flying off, never to be seen again. I thought it had come off with the plug which was already in the engine.

The opaque black plastic canopy had long ago warped in the sun and was replaced by an off-the-shelf clear canopy. That meant I had to install a pilot bust. I don't like ghost ships. An Ace R/C Cap'n Eddy from a crashed Thunder Tiger park flyer was not only a perfect fit, he just seemed right in a model powered by a Thunder Tiger...Continue Reading
