Hey guys....let me break up all this mirth & merriment for a moment with a serial question.

It's one of those just flat out GRAY days here. Rained off & on last night, promised for today....air's super-loaded with moisture & dew point's so close to the temperature you could swing your hand hard & get a contrail. I'd post a picture but it'd just be.....well, GRAY. You've all seen 'em, I'm sure.

I don't know the fine inner-workings of these electric motors & all that fine circuitry in there along with, but the question is, is it safe, gearwise, to fly in this kind'a atmosphere? I'd think the generated heat might help evaporate at least some of the moisture, but then there's condensation, all that rot. Besides the electricals, there's mechanical considerations....eg bearings. What's the conventional wisdom here?

I'm wondering if it's worth getting ready to go out to the field this afternoon.

SH44.

You are quite the thinker. Worry not except for visibility. Yellow tinted shooting glasses do wonders for visibility.

I got my Banana Hobby SkySurfer for Christmas and decided to start doing some upgrades during the winter after being inspired from posts on this site. My first plane was a Hobbyzone Champ last year and I am really loving this hobby. I hope I don't screw this up seeing that its my first mod ever. Thought I would share my upgrades with you. I started with upgrading the motor to a Turnigy 2835-2200. This should allow me to easily remove the motor with a screwdriver through the hole on the front. I shouldn't ever having to split the fuselage open again.

Sky Surfer Motor Upgrade Supplies:
HXT 2838 (380S) 2200 KV Brushless Inrunner HobbyKing # HXT2835-2200
BL Motor Mount 28 mm HobbyKing # GWEMM28TS
Shaft Adaptor for 3.175 mm motor shaft HobbyKing # JY3.175
APC 6 x 4 EP Pusher Prop # LP 06040EP (from local hobbyshop)
5 Min Epoxy

Break off the tabs on the side of the GWS motor mount as they are not needed. Sand the motor mount lightly so that the 5 minute epoxy sticks better. Install the prop and wrap the motor with wax paper to prevent it from sticking to the plane later when glueing it in (it is removed later). Mount the motor into the GWS motor mount using the screws that came with the motor mount. Align the assembly in the fuselage half and make sure the prop clears the fuselage before cutting out the notch on the plane. Carefully align the other half of the fuselage, mark with a pen and cut out notch. Double check for good fit and trim foam as needed. Glue motor assembly into one of the fuselage halves. Make sure you use 5 min epoxy so you can hold the motor assembly in place straight while it dries.

I used a pusher prop rather than reversing a regular prop. This allows the motor to spin counter clockwise when viewed from the back of plane thus preventing the nut of the shaft adaptor from coming loose during flight.

Just making it up as I go along. Hopefully it will fly in the spring.

The pm was from me. My binary post was neither funny nor rude in any way. If you cannot read binary fine but don't call me names. Pm's are called that for a reason, they are supposed to be private. I was addressing the issue in private and now you have brought it out in a public forum. I even said please in the pm.
In fact, here is the pm since you cannot adhere to the concept of 'Private'. I was keeping it private for a reason.

Please don't accuse me of being rude. You obviously have no clue what I said!
If you cannot read binary allow me to translate. This is what my 'funny' and 'rude' message said -

Binary? you mean like this?
Funny? no
Rude? no


Enough on the topic. Move along. Nothing to see here.

Maybe in future you shouln't post in binary. That way people like Flypoppa and others (myself included) that have problems reading binary will not misread or misinterpret what it is exactly that you are saying.

Come on jrjr where is your sense of humour?

Can't. Church nearby -- club rules: No Sunday Flying Before 13:00. City ordinance, too.
Besides that, I've got a FEMA Assessor coming by today (Sunday of all days), "somewhere between 1 and 3", to survey my home damage from Irene. If I don't get some assistance (my Homeowners deductible was a real kick in the crotch), I won't be able to afford leaving my yard, or eating, for 2-3 months at least....so gotta make that appointment!

Never a dull moment....th' hits just keep onnnn a-comin'.

Oh well, we cant always have what we want.

Anyway I hope that all the FEMA stuff goes well for you and get deserved compensation, it looks like your going through a bit of a bad patch but hang in there and I hope it all works out well in the end.
