Hello guys!

I can't say enough of the enjoyment I had this morning in Central Florida with this large lady of the sky!
Again, in case you don't know...this model crashed (Maiden) Nose-In-First from 200+ feet on January 1st, 2022 and it is suspected as being a RF radio issue, however, it is still not certain what may have caused the crash for certain.

I am the new owner (2nd) and have reconstructed this model using my modeling skills and brought it back to flying condition.

Today's Flight Summary:
It performed much better with the APC 13 X 10-E composite propeller as this pitch really woke up the model and with following Captain Mo Mo's recommendations of making and installing the Windshield and the Frontal Side windows. The power system setup is the EMax BL-3520/6 (840Kv), Hobby Wing 60-AMP ESC with onboard BEC disabled, Castle Creations BEC PRO and using 4S/2P 4,000mAH 40C Lithium Polymer Battery pack configuration. The straight and level speed increased dramatically and I would imagine the drag associated with OPEN COCKPIT was mitigated very well with the creation of the Windshield.

Again, it is just a crying shame that HSDJETS does not provide enough Spare Parts Resolution for the Customer in obtaining the Frontal FUSE Battery Hatch! Forcing the Customer to purchase the entire Fuselage at a tune of over $200+ is just not feasible to anyone.

I am very happy with the repair results of this model and will see about recording another Video with a better camera.

Here's this morning's action (4th Flight under my Watch):
HSDJETS 2000mm Cessna 182 4th Flight 01-19-2022 (6 min 25 sec)

Didn't get a whole lot done today....got the hatches sorted, nose block installed, and the nacelles sanded. Joined the inlet and outlet cones, I'll install the fans and build the nacelles tomorrow. Got my left hip injected with Medrol...the upside is that I know it'll help the bursitis...the downside is that I won't be able to tell when there's a cold front at Little Rock...LOL

JamesChen072's Volantex V761-12 Mini Spitfire review





Introduction


Volantex has found a sweet spot in the market with its V761 series. With a well-tuned gyro system, realistic airframes, and excellent (if not entirely accurate) paint jobs, these robust aircraft are among the cheapest ways of entering the world of RC. Excitingly, Volantex has sent me their V761-12 Mini Spitfire for review- their support for my unbiased reviews is much appreciated.

There was some confusion as to the differences between the Eachine and Volantex versions, thanks to the guys in the Eachine Spitfire group, I have double-checked with the manufacturer and they have confirmed that the production version is different only in trim scheme. As this is a prototype aircraft, I cannot verify the final box contents (My guess: Plane, TX, manual, two three-bladed props, one two-bladed prop, landing gear, battery, and charger).



The walk around


Volantex did a great job of replicating the shape of the Spitfire airframe- from the elliptical wings to the bubble canopy. The paint job seems pretty authentic compared to other similarly sized aircraft like the P40 from WLToys.

Painted as KL-B, the V761-12 represents a Mk1A spitfire flown by kiwi pilot Alan Christopher Deere, who famously shot down six Luftwaffe aircraft over Dunkirk and eight more during the battle of Britain.

Here we have another attempt of me being a huge Hollywood Special Effects Director

Brad & Lauren's RC Plane Gender Reveal (1 min 59 sec)


This was on my rebuilt GiantSimpleDelta(thanks BoC)
The plane is now a mid drive, cut off rear vert stab, cut it in half and glued each to the wing tips. Added dump tubes and servo for video. Almost 1/4# of confetti on board and probably could have doubled that. The plane flew awsome. Can't wait to strip off the extras now and get it ready for a FPV trainer. Maybe this weekend
Sorry video didn't show up great, in person was pretty cool, made the woman's eyes leak,lol.
Watch on a laptop or cast/mirror to a big screen, it helps.

[B]RCHACKERS 1500mah 4s 100c ​[/B]Lipo battery is designed for multirotor FPV Drone Racing. This battery is extremely popular for its affordability and outstanding performance. It's small and light, and is cheaper than most every comparable battery on the market. Extra plus, the XT60 plug read more about review stating Excellent Cheap Battery!ems to have less friction then the others I have, and there is no chance of breaking anything while unplugging it. Great for beginners, and really, great for anyone who wants something super affordable.

I recently received a RCHACKERS 4S 1500mah LiPo from rchackers.com for review. I have flown with this battery more than 6 times now, and so far I am very pleased. Great battery for my 230 frame 440 gram (without battery weight) quad running DJI air unit and 2208 1800 kv motors with 5X4X3 props. Have run 4 of these batteries about 6 times each and I typically get about 7 minutes racing high speed through gates in an oval configuration the length of a soccer field (50 mph on straight and 30 mph on turns). Cells are well matched. Drops from 4.2 volts to 3.8 volts fairly quickly (about 1 to 2 minutes), but stays at 3.8 - 3.6 for most of the flight. If it reaches 3.5 volts per cell, come in immediately. The battery will dump to 3.0 volts per cell within less than a minute. But that is actually a sign of a good battery and shows it has consistent cells with a good discharge rate.

When you have a receiver that also has a external remote receiver or satellite receiver they are binded together at the same time. So often you are binding two receivers. You can bind as many receivers together as you want sometimes at the same time or one at a time so long as they're the same or in the same class but do not bind 2 or more telemetry receivers together. There can only be one Telemetry receiver. When binding make sure that the LED's from all receiver including remote satellite receiver indicators show that they are all binded together. If not then you will not have the benefit of the receiver diversity which is more is better than less.
It doesn't matter if you have two main receivers and two remote receivers making 4 receivers. You can bind them all as long as they're the same class. If they are the same model then you know they are. Just do not bind 2 or more Telemetry receivers together.

What determines bind class is the speed and the type of the receiver.

Speed
Spektrum receivers
Older receivers tend to be the 22 millisecond variety.

Newer 6 channel receivers and up maybe 11milliseconds.

Types of spektrum receiver would be DSM or
Dsm2
Dsmx.

Speed and type of receiver is displayed during binding and is set in the receiver and cannot be changed.

As long as the receivers are the same type for instance dsmx and speed 22ms, and if the receivers have the same amount of channels binding will be relatively easy. Receivers do not need to have the same...Continue Reading

Description:

(this is the translation of my rc-aviation.ru article written in Russian)

After experimenting with 2-motor aerobatic wings, I decided to make a 2-motor FPV wing as well. Why? The weight of the Arlequin IV is about 250 g, which is noticeably less than the weight of any of same wingspan (90 cm) classical scheme aerobatic models, also flying wings are much easier to transport, they can be packed in a small flat box-suitcase. Therefore, I could expect the FPV variant of the 2-motor wing will also retain these features.

Goals did I set

- The minimum reasonable size and weight of outdoor model - decided to make the model as light as possible.
- Maneuverability - the model must be able to perform aerobatics, and also be able to fly in parks between trees.
- Although 2-motor wings can fly very slowly, but the most interesting experience is high-speed low altitude FPV flight.
- Ease of manufacture and setup - the pilot FPV model definitely should not be "long-range" flyer - model should have minimum of electronics, standard 2.4 GHz receiver for the control channel, 400 mW video transmitter and shouldn’t have video recording system, as well as GPS navigation .

Manufacturing

As Arlequin IV Falcon 1000 is made using the "EPP + milled carbon technology", but it much more rigid - the frame is 3 carbon tubes triangle, the elevons are also reinforced with carbon elements. As the load on EEP elements is significantly reduced, therefore, in some...Continue Reading

Servo wobble not to be confused with jitter, twitching or humming.

I've been flying for 35 years, I have seen this problem at least on three occasions on different aircraft.

Servo wobble is where the servo appears to go past the center point and then has to come back overshooting the center again going back and forth eventually settles down at center. This would suggest a bad connection. The servo also appears to be moving slower.
This could be due to a bad servo lead extension or the servo wire/connector itself or a bad servo. The bad connection could even go all the way back to the receiver.

First thing to do is to test the servo by plugging it into another source for example if you have an aileron that has wobble, and there are two servos for the ailerons, switch to two wires so the left is right and the right is now left. If the wobble is still on the same servo then you know it's not the receiver connection. It could be a servo extension lead going to the servo or the connection at the servo. Worst case scenario it's a bad servo.

I cut the nose block this morning....Here's how: I printed the plan and side views of the nose block patterns on plain paper, then afixed that to some light weight cardboard (USPS Flat Rate Boxes are perfect). then I glued those patterns to the blank with a very light coat of spray adhesive (M45 was the best, but it's no longer available). Then I cut the side patterns by pulling the blank across the wire....I glued those back on with a light coat of spray, and then cut the top/bottom pattern...pealed everything off, and I have a nose block ready to be finished shaped and sanded. I'll do the same for the canopy.

Here's a link to the nacelles:

I passed on getting out yesterday in the first NorEaster of the year , with gusts over 40 it would have been epic ....
Experience has shown me that the day after the storm hits ,the wrap around winds continue often with blue sky

The wind was predicted to be 13 , but once at the top I was seeing 15 to over 20. Perfect for a true test for my new mini warbird .

She launched easily with just a gentle push from my left hand ,penetrating thru the wind flat straight and level .

Lift on my hill ebbs and flows and with sun bubbles of sink pass thru , so flying the energy of the air is the order of the day.
Just a tickle of up elevator will show you
when there is lift,
The it’s important to be aware of the wind direction ,ours vectors around so I fly different areas on the hill or out in
front .
Any way -I removed most of the trim I had added on my first test throws and wound up with a flat elevator

Mini warbird is the perfect description as she rewards smooth flying and signals when she is getting too slow or sink by getting mushy. Just like my bigger 60” birds .
It penetrates well (it is pretty sleek ) and carries its energy pretty good -it’s only 11.5 oz after all

I put in a 30 minute flight and headed back down the hill ,almost on my but at one point when I slipped on the ice base

A Excellent outing with a excellent little plane

Had to make a new servo tray...took about 10 minutes....got the elevator servos mounted and the aileron servos let in to the underside of the wing. Push rod guides are plastic coffee stirrers

"DSMX allows only 10 channels in 11ms mode. 4 channels (2,3,4 and 6) are at 11ms, and the remaining 6 channels are at 22ms.

If you change to 22ms mode, then you have 12 channels at 22ms and 8 channels variable (22-88).

It shows this on the Frame Rate screen display on IX and NX radios.
