Yes...had a good morning flight with the FT Tiny Trainer. Talked about some things on camera while I worked on trimming the plane.

Description:

The first 10 Do 335 A-0s were delivered for testing in May. By late 1944, the Do 335 A-1 was on the production line. It was similar to the A-0 but with the up rated DB 603E-1 engines of some 1,324 kW (1,800 PS) take-off power rating apiece on 87 octane "B4" lignite-derived synthetic fuel,[6] and two under wing hard points for additional bombs, drop tanks or guns. It had a maximum speed of 763 km/h (474 mph) at 6 500 m (21 300 ft) with MW 50 boost, or 686 km/h (426 mph) without boost, and climbed to 8 000 m (26 250 ft) in under 15 minutes. Even with one engine out, it reached about 563 km/h (350 mph).[citation needed]

Delivery commenced in January 1945. When the United States Army overran the Oberpfaffenhofen factory in late April 1945, only 11 Do 335 A-1 single-seat fighter-bombers and two Do 335 A-12 trainers had been completed.

French ace Pierre Clostermann claimed the first Allied combat encounter with a Pfeil in April 1945. He describes leading a flight of four Hawker Tempests from No. 3 Squadron RAF over northern Germany, when he intercepted a lone Do 335 flying at maximum speed at treetop level. Detecting the British aircraft, the German pilot reversed course to evade. Despite the Tempests' considerable low altitude speed, the Royal Air Force fighters were not able to catch up or even get into firing position.

Wow , chalk and cheese folks ( Chalk & Cheese )
And I am comparing the Firstar to the Ezio here ...
Yeah , the Firstar is the Cheese and the Ezio is the Chalk ...

Now HK say's you can assemble the Firstar in under 15 minutes , and if you were assembling your 2nd or 3rd , yeah ill pay that .My effort took about 30 minutes , as I was being very careful . I never looked at the instructions , the Firstar was just that easy . There just was nothing to challenge in the assembly process . That's like !!!! 100% Noob friendly .

Now , CG ....
For me a Zippy 850 2s will give me CG at the factory recommended spot , which seems more like a Control line CG spot .
Hmmm , a nonotech 460 gives me a better CG ( to my mind ) and a nanotech 370 gives me , maybe a more rearward CG .I will try both nanotech batteries ...

I measured the current draw @ full throttle and I got some 10.6 amp . Also the thrust seems to be very good and the Firstar might fly around the 30% throttle mark . ( Might ) ... Flying weight with the nanotech 370 is around 207.6 grams ..
All that's left is that flying thing !

The Armattan Gecko is my favorite quad at the moment and the Caddx Turtle is one of the reasons. I noticed some propwash when I watched the video below so I inreased D by about 10 percent and it's almost gone now.

Creating a well-balanced rotor took me some time. I used:

- Depron 6mm
- balsa
- ball-bearings
- some carbon booms

The motor needed some down-thrust and I used balsa-sheets for hull and stabilizer. Only one servo is used for rudder and all weight is placed as much at the front as possible.

The secret is balancing the main-rotor as good as possible. It takes quite some time. I am happy with the result so far and plan on creating a bigger Savonius Rotorwing in the future.

This is my H-King High Performance Paramotor Maiden Flight

H-King Paramotor Maiden Flight Review - Hobbyking RC PPG (5 min 36 sec)

Link to the H-King Paramotor: https://bit.ly/2VXTOcX

The HobbyKing™ Paramotor is extremely easy to fly due to its very gentle and stable flight characteristics yet once you are used to it, it will perform loops and rolls with ease. Due to the design the huge high performance 2400mm sail opens quickly for easy launching and it will retain its shape even in turbulence. The single skin durable sail is made from 100% ripstop fabric and comes pre-rigged with tough polyethylene lines and ready to attach to the durable aluminum gondola. It does require a computer radio with mixing and servo control curves, to see what is involved in the radio set up please watch the attached video and also the one for the setting up of the parafoil itself.

There is a high level of prefabrication so assembly time is minimal and it is Plug-N-Fly so all you require is your own transmitter, receiver, and battery. The Paramotor is fitted with a powerful 3530-1400KV brushless motor swinging a 10 x 4.7 propeller, it also has a 50 amp electronic speed controller with 5 amp BEC and 2 powerful 15kg high torque metal geared servos. A 3S lipo battery is recommended and it can vary in capacity to suit different flying conditions. The recommended flying weight is 1.6~2.0kg, in light wind conditions it is best to put a lighter battery in to keep near the 1.6kg weight....Continue Reading

May 28th 2019 Camped out at mount Greylock where I woke to some light rain. Drove to the top and ....Crystal Clear! Winds perfect out of the E-SE at 15 to 22mph. Launched a 3.3m Xperience Pro with a 15 ounce battery. Flights just keep getting better and better! Landing was 0 turbulance and with modualted flaps (f5j) just laid it down right in front of me as it slowly decended in place. Max speeds recorded on the on board Graupner GPS (MZ-32) were 63 MPG. Awesome!

Threw in some Mountainbiking, swiming in the cold river and perfectly cool lake, and ...oh, the previous two days were at Petersburg Pass !!! Hats of to my Dog Pebbles for doing two 7 mile Bike rides in the woods and a 3 mile hike to the top on the Appalachian trail....Continue Reading

All -

2003 I built the BURD Korda world Record Holder as electric RC. Although it was a good flyer, the GWS brushed motors and fairly heavy batteries put the model in storage after a couple years of successful flying.

I'll link the build / refurbishment log rather than repost it all.



https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...Video-attached



There are a couple flight video links in the log. The model really got brought to life with the brushless conversion and flies better than it ever has.

Best regards,

jeff

Ok, So I just got a new Hanger9 PA-18 It is white and red and covered in fabric. I doesn't have a engine does anyone know what size engine I should put on it. Right now I'm leaning towards putting a dle 35cc engine one it but if anyone has any recommendation please let me know. Also it has a couple small holes in the fabric does anyone know how to fix those too.
Thanks , Danny

First a little explanation about my Helicopter skill level. I currently have 9 total helicopters. I have 2 Blade MCP-BL, Blade 180, Blade Apache, Blade 300, Blade 400 converted to FBL, Helimax Blackhawk, Align 450pro and now the A-109 Coast Guard Rescue 450.
On all my helicopters I can fly nice smooth figure 8’s, Loops and rolls. I would consider myself an intermediate heli pilot.
Back info to my purchase.
I’ve been watch these since I believe November 2018 when they first announced them. The first part of May, James (MotionRC) posted a 30 minute video on setting up the ZYX-S2 controller for the new 450 helicopter line. After watching the video I decided to pull the trigger. I actually preferred the Huey but they are out of stock. My next was either the A-109 or the Airwolf. I decided on the A-109. I’m now wishing that I would have either waited for the Huey or just gotten the Airwolf. More on that later.
The price is not great but not bad either seeing you get a decent helicopter without a FBL controller but with a nice fiberglass body. I would call it more of a APNP (almost plug and play)
The A-109 showed up well packaged in a box in a box. The only box art was on the shipping box and looked like a simple desktop printed image B/W of the A-109. The helicopter is mostly assembled in the box needing to only put the blades on and the two tail fins. The blades were taped to the side of the inner inside box as well as a small bag holding 4 water slide decals, the two...Continue Reading

So on our way to our vacation destination we stopped in at the Aviation Museum of Kentucky located in Lexington, KY. Lots of cool things on display....helicopters, planes, jets, various engines, propellers, etc. Highly recommended if you are into aviation and happen to be in the area. Entry price is pretty affordable as well.
