CCM Hypnosis double carbon


I bought this a while back after seeing some of the video shot in UK.
I really liked the thin wing, and high A/R looks of this ship.

Then I got distracted building some blingeron parts, some winch parts, some kitchen remodeling, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Tried to sell it not once, but twice.
I even tried to peddle it at the Tri-Slope Six-Pack. No takers.

Rapid Raptor had his Hypnosis out at Eagle, he was flying it in the great lift. I sidled up to him and I said, "Do me a favor, and make me want to build my Hypnosis." With that, he let me have a go at the sticks and I flew it a bit.
Yeah, OK, I like the way it flies, it holds energy well.

SO, I decided to NOT sell it (again) and build it out.

Here we go with what I got done last night...

Finished out the wing servo mounts.
The servos slip in and snap down very solidly.
I know that these servos have a dubious reputation, but hey, I have them, and they change out easily in this setup. Besides, I've used them before, and I havn't had any trouble with them. This will be the first time I use them on flaps, but they are pretty small flaps...

I'm going to bottom hinge them, and the molded CF servo covers will cover the linkages very nicely.

I laid out some servo extensions and clipped the leads to solder to the Deans plugs.

Next will be the control horns and battery pack.

DOUBLE Carbon


I thought I'd mention this particular Hypnosis is a special layup double carbon.
the ones Bro has on his website are single carbon. I just got lucky and got my order in right when he was placing it, and got it right away. I paid extra for the double carbon option.

The one I flew (belongs to Rapid Raptor) was a single carbon, and the ones in the great videos are single carbon as well (I think). So I think the 2x carbon should be a bit more resistant to dings & rash.


The airframe weighs 35 oz. weighed it before I started the radio install.
We'll see what the ready to fly weight comes out to.

Hypnosis owners:

I seem to remember some folks saying they didn't get it any faster with massive ballast, and that med ballast was about right.
Izzat so? How much ballast is "just right"?


Perhaps I should make a WinchDoctor steel joiner for it.
How many extra should I make?

Blingware?


Are you planning to make your super slick clevis and linkage system for this one?

Control horns will use Ball links and CF control horn plates on either side with cherry wood spacers.
I'll mill a slot in each surface where it needs to go.

So, no, not SUPER slick, just semi-slick.

I'll post pix a little later.

AntonL's hypno 'ain't ballasted and it seems just fine in windy weather. It does get tossed around some on bumpy inland days, but hey, she's only a 2.2 meterey.

Some ballast may work, but I don't rekon a huge amount IMO. Your double carbon one may be heavier off the bat. Keep the provision in and experiment.

...oh Anton did bust his joiner which I repaired for him with a couple of 8mm carbon rods. From the impact he had, and if he had a steel joiner it would have busted the internal wing box instead of a 10 minute fix employing some old Jart parts and excess splooge.

The difference between you and me, and just about anyone else, versus the good doctor, is that we would probably use the sandpaper on the putty knife thingy to trim the hardwood block. Winchdoc trims his wood blocks with a CNC mill. Definately sick.

I do MDI short programs from time to time (manual data input) no big deal.
