Flying Free

I feel your pain. When I first got into the hobby about 10 years ago, I lost a $200 plane. It took about 6 hours and a friend's 4 wheeler and another friend's trailer to get the 4 wheeler to the fieldof 4' tall grass. And then I went back and forth covering about 5 acres with my daughter on the back as look out. We found it just before sundown.

Since then I put a sticker with my name, address, phone number, and AMA number (It is required by AMA. I belong to AMA for the insurance and follow the AMA park flyer guidelines, religiously.) on everything, TX, planes, chargers, batteries, I also put "REWARD!" on the stickers that I have printed out. Then I cover them with tape to make them a little weather resistant.

You might make some fliers to post around the area and post at some local businesses and at the local hobby store. Who knows it may show up in a month or two.

Often the wind will do what climbers cannot. We had a plane on top of a warehouse that was too tall to get a ladder up to on a weekend. The next week when the employees were finally in the plane had blown off the roof and was found on the ground by the building.

As I cutted the cores by myself and scratchbuilt it from the zero, the lost feeling is worst, even when you remember that it was flying very well.

I´ll do that: put a sticker with my contacts. The word “REWARD” just like you put (in upper cas) is wonderfull! I´ve never think about that!

We added a few pictures and updated the Assassin and Widowmaker instructions. Please take a look and make a few suggestions on what would have helped you build your plane.

Thanks

I'm in the process of building an assassin (btw super fast shipping ! that thing was over here in switzerland in 7 days !), I could use some advice regarding the motor angle, is this angle normal or should I correct the mount, maybe with washers ?



Thanks a lot for a short reply.

Turn the prop vertical and get it close to 90 degrees of the center line of the core, you already look close though.

If it needs adjustment, the easiest way is to just bend the steel motor mount, just grab it carefully so that you aren't ripping the screws out of the formica

Just picked up this SkyArtec BL330 4200KV motor today. Any opinions on whether it can power a Widowmaker?

4200 kv motor of that size would most likely turn a 4-4.5 inch prop on 2s. So, I would say no.
