Today's flying cession...


Avoided a disaster involontarily when my TX (Spktrum DX7) failed as i was flying my Vampire. Suddenly... Nothing ! She went zooming, stalled and went nose up just when she was about to hit the planet... A Miracle ! She's still i one piece with only minor damages.
Diagnostic : The coaxial wire between the HF module and the antenna was a bit flatened, for an unknown reason... Our safety is hanged on a very thin wire !

Don't dare to imagine what could happen with a big and heavy fast model...

Your Vampire is a great looking model. Is it scratch built, and what size fan are you using?

Thanks Craig ! Both Vampire and Hawk are scratchbuilt and use the same set-up : Wemotech Microfan 50mm, Typhoon 240-15 BL motor, 3s LiPo 2200 mAh and CC Phoenix 25 ESC. It works great !

Superb! I have to find those plans so I can build one. I admire that Vampire jet and yours is an inspiration. I love scratch building models as much as flying...maybe more.

Regards
Craig

Rafale hk


Salut

Ton RAFALE HK vole toujours ?

Tu n'as pas été trop déçu par ses qualités de vols et surtout par sa vitesse ?

A+
