Howdy y'all! I'm currently modifying a 8-year-old balsa trainer called "Superstar EP" by Hobbico into a brushless-powered high power sport aircraft. I've tested it out on the field and it flies absolutely great with a crap ton more maneuverability and power. Without further'doo, below are the current mods of the airplane.
1. 2.25" E-flite Aluminum spinner w/ custom spiral
2. 3.5" ParkZone Sport Cub tundra wheels
3. 10X6-10X8E props
4. Turnigy D3536/8, 1000kV BL motor
5. Custom nose weights (salvaged yellow Ni-Cd pack and green LiPo pack)
6. 2200-4500mAh 3S 25+C LiPo packs compatible
7. 50+mph (original setup only goes 30+mph)
8. FPV ready
9. Horizontal-lens action camera mounts
Attention, rc guys in Corpus Christi, TX area!! I was flying my ParkZone Sport Cub on Mustang Island beach on 9/23/2016 at around 7pm, and a cop stopped by!! I saw him pulled about 30ft yonder while I was changing my battery out for a second flight, but neither did he flash his lights nor get out of his SUV, therefore I was very uncertain about what he'll do next(I'm a recreational pilot with both AMA and FAA sUAS #'s). As a result of fear and uncertainty, I landed my airplane immediately, packed everything up and left the beach. Luckily the cop didn't come after me, so what a relief!!
Can rc people with both registrations fly on any beaches near CC, TX? Thanks!
Howdy y'all! I finally got my Mobius 2 action cam today, but not too exciting, it's got some problems.
1. Audio is always way faster than video
2. Audio output must be toggled to "high" on mSetup, else videos are without sound.
3. 1080p 60fps is not at all smooth and defined, looks worse than my regular Mobius's 1080p 30fps.
4. mSetup can make this camera upset, and its true quality is far from its marketing description!!!
Howdy folks, I need some emergency help for my Mobius Action Cam! I did some float fly at a saltwater channel with my mobius today hoping to capture some scenic views, but when I came home trying to watch the footage by plugging it into my laptop with its stock USB cable, it just won't charge or start its USB mode. I can only toggle its USB mode by turning it on while the cable is connected to the computer, but it still won't charge. I've tried different cables and USB ports nothin' worked. How/what should I do?
Hi all, welcome to JHAC. What a surprise that there's a new update in just 2 days! I just couldn't believe the cumbersome work for the last update actually makes a ton of mess for less efficiency. I tried to get better steering in water by adding a larger, hydro-foiled water rudder, but always result in ultimate fail. Well I guess that was too much hot glue for water to peel off... So, I came up with another idea.
As a result of the previous fail, I redesigned the vertical stabilizer into a gigantic planform with most of it being the rudder, and also changed the motor to a Turnigy 2836/9, 950kV motor. I'm tellin' you, it was a perfect 10! The steering finally went back to normality for an airboat, and it doesn't even need a water rudder, which the vehicle is 100% amphibious now. Off-road or off-shore, take your pick !
Glad to have a REAL airboat today!
Howdy, RCGroup-ers heh heh! Here's the newest update of the JHAB, a fun little watercraft that I built to spend seasons (i.e. deep summer and deep winter) that I can hardly fly my planes with. This product is not a marketing product.
Update: Reinforced and refurbished tail fin component, pusher power system running an E-flite Park 370, 1360kV brushless on 30A ESC and 5500mAh 35C 3S LiPo, a 7x6E prop, larger water rudder.
Howdy folks, I'm Joe from the JHAC and now am back to the Group! I've got somethin to show y'all... No doubt, it's the good old JH-21A Vesper II again! Now this particular model shown here ain't an ordinary VII, it's "The Amazing Sundowner" edition, featuring a larger fuselage with micro servos for the tail. The model is constructed and tested yesterday, and the flight...surely was great! This airplane really got to the sweet spot where it flies with record-broken speed and rough aerobatics. The model features a single-piece cantilever wing with KFm-2 airfoil. The rubber band hold-down posts came in standard and handy, only 8 rubber bands are needed to hold down the wing tight and strong.
A scream, a loud scream, a very loud scream, a very loud scream of speed... With all that in mind, comes forth the JH-30E Q-Tau Q-series racer aircraft. The Q-Tau aircraft is an art of simplicity; from all aspects, it is engineered and layered in such way that would even frighten all the rivals. It is designed with entry-level advanced pilot in mind, which its finely tailored KFm-4 wings are too tough to handle all flexes, crashes and even your little one's destruction! Two excessively large full-span ailerons are designed to deliver maximum amount of excitement and maneuverability for you, and your spectators! A potent Turnigy D3542/5 1250kV brushless motor, in addition to a breathtaking 60Amp ESC and a 4500mAh 3S 30C LiPo battery, this speedster will always be ready to take your boredom away and bring you a nice and thrilling afternoon!...Continue Reading
Hey guys, Joe here! Just some updates on the JHAC Enhancement Project, and here comes the preliminary version of the JH-43A Wedge UPA, the JH-P2A4.
This flying wing is a blast to fly with improved aerodynamics. It is a graceful large-scale FPV wing that can serve you in any situations. Note: twin inward-leaning vertical stabilizers (TILVS) are added for wing root aerodynamic efficiency and extra stability....Continue Reading
Why do you treat o'r small orgs like taters? What are you guys, 4 years ago you were just like us, being highly local and unknown. If not through YouTube, your company is simply another small RC org... You'd better know why I always ignore your company and your videos, cause you are destroying the industry, and monopolizing over all of us small orgs. Don't think "ha, he's just being pathetic, beggin' us to feed him", because I'm expressing many people's voice! Yeah, you "help the RC community", but we do too! What have you done, isn't that enough for you guys? Ask your self, do people really like your products? They are supporting your fatass to get fatter and bigger over time; to expand into a hyper-inflated balloon. They are common beginners and will most likely crash your planes after buying them, leaving the sole group of true hobbyists, having absolutely no interest in those cheap foam products you guys build! If you will, go look at my products, I handcraft and engrave them with the best type of foam board. Cheap but low quality, be sure you inspect your fomies with the FCC and CE before you even bring it to market! I do not have any more respect in you, and have a good thought, of why I rant about these discord.
