Simple 2 pcs wing joiner

Originally the joiner was introduced on RC groups by Ira several years ago.
Since many of you guys have Skywalker and struggle with one piece wing this is a great option to make two piece wing.
I am using this connections for last 6 years and never had a nasty surprise.
All you need are CF arrow shafts, arrow aluminum inserts, 0.158" piano wire, 0.158" drill and your choice of glue.

Cut the wire to the desired length.
Drill through aluminum inserts to enlarge existing hole so your music wire fits easily.
Cut off the wide part (flange ) of the insert.
Determine how deep the insert will go in to the arrow shaft. I actually use two inserts one at the end of music wire and the other with flange at the end of the arrow.
apply the glue around the insert and push it to the desired depth in the arrow shaft.
Use the flanged inset to prevent arrow splitting.

Since Skywalker wing has two spars, there is no way it will ever fold in flight....Continue Reading

Spent over two hours editing (cutting, pasting rearranging to fit the music) I had one more segment to do of the whole video and got windows error and all this work was gone in a second.
Got pissed off and stitched this. Its short so there is not much to fast forward

Here is my version of great air intake to keep all the OSDs and everything inside the fuse nice and cool.

I hate crowds, well, just few people with kids asking questions and letting kids go wild when I am flying.
I had to fly by monitor since the little guy almost shot down the ground station

Kind of bored today since its raining buckets I decided to make long past due mod to my ugly Liberator. My idea is to have as few cables as possible, so I made "nice" connector for video cables, now I can just clip Liberator to the belt/pants or anything else and have one cable only to distance myself from the main GS case.
