Greetings good people.

It's been just too long! I can't believe it has been (over 4 years) this long and my beloved Midwest Citabria been hanging this amount of time.

Took out the Power System out of my beloved Midwest Citabria to use in a 3DHS Vyper 65.
So, as a replacement, I installed a almost brand new E-Flite Power 60 (400Kv) in my Citabria. It will swing the XOAR Glow wood 14 X 8 propeller using 6 Cells. Commutation will be provided by a brand new E-Flite 60-AMP (ELF11597) without the need for any onboard BEC.

Midwest Citabria E Flite 60 Power 400Kv 6 Cells Watt Meter Tests 11 09 2020 (3 min 7 sec)

While my Citabria was down it needed some attention to bottom end covering from a previous repair many years ago and for some reason this expensive covering turned a different color. Instead of a nice bright white it turned in an ugly translucent tan for this repair area. Sanded the bones down and applied new covering and hope this one does not turn.

The last known receiver that the Citabria flew with was a super narrow band 72-Mhz using a Hitec Electron-6 dual conversion (JR) Receiver and as I recall it was glitch prone at my RC Club so, I took it out and replaced it with the Spektrum AR8000 + SAT. The new AR8000 + SAT has been tested before and extensively with the E-Flite Power 60 for several days now and it is rock solid.

I am keeping the Power Source for this new Spektrum Receiver and servos separate using a separate RX battery (2-Cell, Thunder...Continue Reading

Yep Les Amis,
FACILOCOPTÈRE !!! J'avais hâte de tester ce petit hélico de chez Eachine, le nouveau E129, et je n'ai pas été déçu du tout. Non seulement ce pack est très complet, mais le petit plus, une superbe petite aire de décollage et atterrissage de bonne qualité, façon tapis de souris en un peu plus grand ! La mise en route et la prise en main se fait très rapidement, même si on regrettera une petite notice en français, les explications sont claires. Grâce aux deux vitesses de pilotage et au maintien d'altitude, ce petit hélico est aussi à l'aise à l'intérieur que dehors, même avec un peu de vent malgré son faible poids (52g avec la batterie). Une conception résistante qui autorisera quelques crashs sans devoir tout changer à chaque fois, et une durée de vie allongée grâce aux pièces détachées dispo à bas prix. Pour finir, une bonne autonomie (15mn par batterie) qui permet de bonnes sessions de vol. En bref, je VALIIIIDE ... Bon Film et merci à tous pour votre soutien .

Hmmm , I was thinking of replacing the motor in the Micro Tundra ..
On the test stand the little motor did produce 160+ grams of thrust and the flying weight of mine is around 156 grams ... On paper that's 1:1 ..

But I am not seeing that in the air , and a lot of people seem to be a little disappointed in the power available .
Is it the ESC ? Is the little ( It is small ) ESC simply not delivering enough current ?
( I only tested the Motor and Prop ) ... Thanks to the magic of the internet ...

I got a reading off 5.2A and that quickly dropped to 4.8A and at full throttle it did sound like the motor was sagging . This was with a rather large 2200mAh 2s battery .. ( So it's not the battery ) .
Should I start with a ESC swap first ? Since most likely there will need to be a swap in anyways if I put in the 1306 - 3100kv motor ( I will test it first ) ..

Also , fitting the 1306 will require some thought , it's not a bolt in fit .

From the prop tests I did = On my Test stand ... ( Previous 1106 results )

Factory prop is a black King Kong 6x4P ( 8400 - 8500 rpm for 161 grams @ 5Amp )

Next prop I tried was a Gemfan 6030 ( 12000 ish RPM 170 grams of thrust @ 3.8Amp ) I like that

Then a 5x4x4 ( 9200 rpm - 160 grams - 4.96A )
Then a 5x3x3 ( 12000 rpm - 153 grams - 3.8A )
Then a 5042x3 ( 10,000rpm - 148 grams - 4.65A )
Then a :- King Kong 6x4P grey ( 8700 rpm - 170grams - 5.31A )
Then a 6x4E ( 9000 rpm - 185 grams - 5.35A )
Then a 5x5 cyclone ( 9800 rpm -...Continue Reading

Herbertz 420 Folder (5 min 11 sec)

Yes , I am really into the edge retention . ( It's all about the blade steel )

The Chinese can make a knife that looks good , feels good , is good ! Until you start cutting something . Thats when the wheels can fall off the wagon . And a wagon without wheels is ( Hmmm wagon wheels - a tasty treat ) ! Anyways .
This Herbertz was ordered a while ago from Poland , simply cos I had never seen this knife before . ( I had to have one ) .
And then a while later , I spied Crocbait ! With the mail being all Snail , I thought I may as well treat myself to some CrocBait !

Anyways , a little while ago the Herbertz arrived . I also ordered a 80 grit diamond hone to RIP steel off knives . And I thought !!! Why cant the knife edge be 80 grit ? ( I mean , why not ? ) Yes , the 80 grit will catch the printer paper when doing the paper cut test . But in the real world !
Let me just say , I have nothing against the 80 grit edge . It's not the best for slicing paper , but slicing other things - Like maybe flesh ? ( Hmmmmm )
Crocbait rated a 140 with a 180 grit edge
Herb rates a 130 with a 80 grit edge
And that could be due to the 80 grit catching the paper . Close enough to call same'o/same'o
Should you buy one ?

Oh dear ! How do I put this ? It's a cheap nasty knife and you should be able to do a little better . But , if you have an itch , you have an itch . I mean , for less than $14 ozzi bananas you can do a lot worse . You could buy a QSP Parrot !

I decided it was time to update my ol' reliable flyer- the J-Power/Banana Hobby P-38. First up was the turbos. The turbos that came with the model are just laughable in their size, shape, and color, which is a real shame because the rest of the model is a decent P-38.

Believe it to not, the Flightline P-38 (a tad-bit larger model) has detailed plastic turbos that are just about the same size as the ones on the J-Power model. Still oversized, but much closer to a decent facsimile! They are very inexpensive. too. (These turbos are so cool that I would consider using them on my B-17.)

I cut off the old, molded foam turbos with a hobby saw, traced the outline of the new turbo, and cut a pocket for it to nestle into. Then, I tacked it into place on the underside with hot glue. I cleaned up the installation with some aluminum tape and dark green acrylic paint. I added a bit of weathering to the turbos and fuel staining on the booms.
I also added:

- A gun sight made from styrene sheeting, a straw, and a piece of transparent plastic. All scraps!
- A larger, more scale-sized pilot.
- A seat and pilot armor.
- Radio equipment! Old 9-gram servos emptied of their contents.

Not a scale masterpiece, but decently dressed up for a grab-and-go belly lander with hundreds of flights on it

I have made some more progress and I’m inching closer to the finish line. I decided to go with the Canadian Snowbirds color scheme. Model is the classic Goldberg Eaglet which has been re-engineered by Balsa Workbench here on RC Groups. Looking forward to a maiden flight in the near future...

Meteor65, a leading 1S whoop WINTER TIME drone. It's equipped with the BT2.0 connector, lightest F4 1S FC and 0802 19500/22000KV motors. With the stronger and powerful dynamical system, you’ll immediately notice how fantastic the 22.84g Meteor racer is at takeoff. It feels amazing as you hover around indoor, then let it rip and haul around the house!

What's more, Meteor65 comes with abundant accessories of 2 lipo batteries, BT2.0 charger & tester, extra 1 set of props, 1 screwdriver and the portable bag. It is easy to use and with a reasonable price! Also, the camera angle has been adjusted to 30°, which brings you greater flying experience!

Meteor65 is the first whoop drone powered by brand-new BT2.0 1S battery. The BT2.0 connector effectively decreases internal connector resistance for a much better discharge performance compared with the initial PH2.0 connector.

Bought 1.5 mm JST connectors from Digi-Key for a Spektrum 6310 receivers. My problem isn't cripping the socket to the wire, It's inserting the socket into the housing. Seems as though I keep smashing the socket when I try to push it into the housing.

My question is can someone please offer some advise to me.

Thanks Doug

EF D2 Nemesis Knife (3 min 34 sec)

When I first got this knife , I thought it was ok because the Chinese knives before it were worse !!! Thats right , worse .
After a while ( And more knives ) I grew to feel that the blade was not really anything special at all . ( Hence a Nemesis knife )
Almost every Chinese knife failed when compared to my R3 Remington Folder .
And when I started using that R3 , the EF did not compare . Well , D2 is printed on the blade ( thats easy to do ) . So I can only surmise this is the worst D2 on planet earth or that whats printed on the blade is pure 100% fertilizer !

On the upside , the blade is easy to maintain , the knife is solid , locks up well , and there is plenty of meat . So even though there is little in the way of edge retention , there is plenty of edge to remove re-sharpening the blade .

Spit - - - - - Ping !
