Guys I have two NanoTech 6s 3300 35c batteries I have never used and have no use for. They were bought about a year ago and still in their boxes. If anyone needs them, let me know. $20 ea.

Next FPV plane


So... what do I do on a crappy flying weekend??
Work on my next FPV plane: The 67" Penguin from ReadyMade RC.

Had the chance to maiden her 2 days ago.... really stable flier and will fly an easy 30min on 3s 6000 mah batteries.

Just waiting on an upgraded canopy to show then will load her up with the FPV gear.
All I'll need then is a break in the weather!

So this motor is working me over......RCG 20cc
Anyway I need some suggestions on the following:

choke: use it, don't use it. Use it just to prime or till it pops..........

Throttle position for starting: idle, half full............

Prime: Use choke, don't worry about it ......

If anyone has an electric starter that will work on this for sale ping me.

Looks Sweet D!
Pulled the trigger Thursday night after your maiden on a new RMRC Penguin (Really it looks more like a Dolphin...)

Also got a new Pixm Seawolf FPV camera on the way and I'm am now looking at UHF systems.

Didn't know getting those two elected would cost me so much - LOL

Cool Mark...
We'll have us some FPV Penguin races/chases!!

PS... Don't forget to do the Elevator horn flip...
Mount the horn on the top not the bottom to avoid it coming in contact with the ground during take off and/or landing.

Mine is pretty simple..
5.8g 600mw Vtx. w/circular polarized antennas and a single video Vrx.
720 tv line camera with a GoPro2 for video capture and EzOSD.

Works great up to the the 1/2 mile distance I've flown and more power than you'd need for any AMA field.
Plan on taking it where I can really test it in 2013.

5.8 will get you started, but eventually you might want to go with 1.280. (1.3) Better range and penetration through trees, etc.. Just be careful using it w/ 2.4 rc control though I've been testing a setup here with a plane and have had no problems! (Using a low-pass filter on the Vtx). All depends on your objective really, for a plane 5.8 is probably great.

D-Man - Like your Penguin! Cool stuff there. Almost got my Zephyr ready to go, weather is holding me up now.

I'm looking for some paid FPV troubleshooting/repair.

Pretty much nothing works; poor unusable but partially there video feed. zero control from futaba s-bus and dji error indicating no radio signal, gps has never seen a satellite. - anyone up for it?

I have already replaced bad data logger, bad receiver cable, I suspect the camera is also bad, and futaba s-bus has some configuration setting I have no guess about, but I am at my (temper) limit with it.

Actually - anyone make a reasonable offer and I'd just as soon be rid of it and start something very different. ($7k in it, all new).

Mike
