Bought and rebuilt old racers


Today did I fly two of my recent builts, bought second hand 5 different racers, just for the fun of it. All had motor and servos and the voodoo and speedwing was without a scratch so the focus was to get those two ready asap. Currently do I prepare number 3, a Stiletto that I shortened the nose on for a Mega 22 series edf to fit. Probably will I fly it within 10 days. I will fly with those racers until I feel ready for a Big Monster.

I think the speedwing reached close to 300km per hour and the voodoo around 150km per hour without telling to high numbers. Prop change on both will change the numbers for sure.

Fly safe

Then the third is ready to rumble, the Stilleto with a Mega 22/30/2, 4S2200 with APC 7x8.
Next to work on is a Speed 400 with a Thyphoon 20 kv3600, and only one aileron, interesting to try, for this one do I have to purshase prop and spinner 30mm. APC 4.1x4.1.
I have to prepare some head mount for a camera, and the weather is at the moment really bad, not sure then next flight will be.

Fly fast

Hello Kenneth,

The Speed 400 seem to be an Adrenalin by Sergey Sobakin...

I had one a couple of years ago with a light setup........lots of fun and a crazy rollrate towards left,but lazy right

I bought one from Sergej at a meeting in germany for many years ago, at then it was very fast, Think he sold more than 100pcs within an hour.

My wing is very crapy, but I see the challenge to repair it.

By the time its name was speed 400, also confirmed by the stickers.

Cheers

I think I’m the only person alive with a Sobayakin Stinger still alive. Two actually. One has repairs, the other hasn’t been finished.

Speedwing: Today did I try to capture the flight on a action cam mounted on head. Definitely not easy, did only catch a few seconds of the entire flight.

How do you do then filming?

Speed400/Andrenalin has gone to the grave and it was my fault, stupid me. Well I get better to film with the head camera.

I had (still have, somewhere!) a stinger and when I searched for an old thread, it looks so dated... have a look:

A much lighter and more powerful setup should be possible today.
