Here are three projects I did in parallel, the UFO Invader was themed on the old Centuri rocket kit, the Fireball XL-5 was as close as I could get while still having a decent glider and the Maurader is a top intake cruise missile styled model. All are around 10.5-12.5 oz rtf, use 2.6" tubing, and MPF and are 20" wingspans and 32-33" long.

Yep Les Amis,
Je ne m'y attendais pas, quelle bonne surprise ! J'ai aujourd'hui en test la petite caméra ONEPAA X2000 qui n'a rien à envier aux Runcam 2 et autres caméras de ce type. Le rendu d'image est très propre, l'utilisation tres facile et les accesoires nombreux pour pouvoir la fixer sur beaucoup de supports et engins différents. Malheureusement, j'ai découvert un peu tard le VTX dédié, le ONEPAA FXT, mais je compte bien le commander car c'est pour moi un accessoire indispensable à cette petite caméra . En bref, je pense que cette petite X200 trouvera sa place dans mes prochaines vidéos !!!

Onepaa X2000 Caméra Full HD FPV et bien PLUS encore ! Quelle bonne surprise !!! (22 min 22 sec)


NOTATAZ : 19/20 Très bon rapport qualité prix !

Looking to buy a used SkyMule rc plane.
Posted by KatrinaRosen | Yesterday @ 02:08 PM | 845 Views
When the engine on the left wing broke in mid-flight, the pilots of Southwest Airlines Flight 1380 had to deal with a 737 that suddenly banked left on its own, well past any angle they would use. The plane was pitched at an angle of more than 40 degrees for a few unnerving seconds before it leveled out and began an emergency descent, National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Robert Sumwalt told reporters Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Greetings my friends; survived tax season...so not a lot of progress on the build. Have been keeping the 3D printer running practically nonstop. Printed a significant number of deck equipment parts. I’ve printed the base and wedge for the rocket launchers and four roll-off rack frames (each took 13 hours and 20 minutes). Currently printing the engine room hatch frame. (24+ hour print).

This guide will go through the process of combining flaps with flight modes. I can confirm that this works with the new (black) Dx6 and Dx7 and I assume it can work with any of the new "black" transmitters that have Spektrum's newer UI. However, I know that this trick is NOT POSSIBLE using a Spektrum Dx6e and I suspect it might not be possible on the Dx8e, but I haven't confirmed this yet.

So, what's the point of linking flaps with flight modes? Good question.
Have you ever had a plane where you deploy the flaps and the plane dives or climbs dramatically? Have you ever deployed flaps (or flaperons) and noticed your plane rolls a bit left or right, but flies fine with flaps up? Having flight modes linked to flaps can help you take care of these issues in-flight in real time without the need to land and go through your Tx settings.

How does it work?
By combining the FLAPS and FLIGHT MODE (which I will abbreviate as FM) onto a single switch, you can set independent trims for each flight mode and flap setting. This means that each flap condition (Flaps Up/Half Flaps/Full Down) will have independent trim from the other flap conditions.

How do we set this up?
I made a video and you can watch it as I go step-by-step through the process. There was no script and I had to hold the phone myself while navigating the menus, so it's not the best, but it will tell you what you need to know.

… continued

Priority number one for modifying the transmitter would be to place the gimbal assemblies far enough apart to prevent my hands and stylus from contacting one another while flying. Second priority was to place the various switches on the transmitter into positions that would allow me to either bump them or hook them with my fingers to select different flight modes and channels.

The first serious idea that I considered was to strip all of the electronics out of the case of my new Spektrum DX6 and cut out holes for the gimbals, display screen and all the various scrolls and switches in a wide, thin piece of Lexan in a configuration similar to a Jeti DC-24 transmitter but spread out wider and longer. I ran the idea by my cousin, who has professional experience designing and building electronic panels, and he thought it would be something that could be done and was willing to tackle the job.

While I was thinking about what I thought would be the best layout for the gimbals and switches on the planned Lexan board, I asked my cousin to modify the case on my DX6 as it was currently configured by cutting off the plastic horizontal antenna housing/carrying handle so that my transmitter could lay flat on the current Lexan board I'm using. When we opened up the transmitter and got a look at just how complicated the transmitter was and how much work it would take to place all the individual electronics onto a Lexan board, I decided it would be a good idea to go...Continue Reading
