I'm glad to see the end of it all. We had a huge storm that knocked out the power 'last' Thursday to hundreds of thousands, lots of damage and many are still without power. No stores, gas stations, traffic light, coffee shops, etc., etc. locally for a few days. The hydro sez all will be back in service by Jan.1st.

Jan. 1st will be our 44th annual new years day 'Grub n' Grog fly in' and the weather is looking favorable. Although, we do attend rain, sleet, snow or shine. Something to look forwards to. Last year about 80 guys showed from this and surrounding islands. Although, the ferry docks were taken out on a few. No hydro tucks on, no modelers off.

Several years ago, I built a Stop Sign that was flat with elevons. Later, I eliminated the elevons and added dihedral so I could turn it with only the rudder. I changed the rudder to be controlled by the aileron channel on my TX and essentially had a nut ball (ish) configuration that flew MUCH better than the original design.

Interesting.

I think you need some downthrust on the motor.

Pizza foam plate Nutball


Right, so my girlfriend wanted to make her own “cauliflower dough” pizzas. You know, pre-made, just add your toppings. Wasn’t too excited until I found that they came on 3mm Depron-like foam plates, 250mm diameter.

In two evenings I slapped a Nutball together and flew it today, I love it!

-5 gram brushless rewound to approx 4000kv
-3A ESC,power to RX through servo lead
-150mA 1S
-UMX brick from e-flite P40
-programming aileron port as AUX1 mixed to follow THR input
-programming channel assign to make rudder servo move by aileron input. Then, I swapped elevator with rudder - this allows for the brick to lie down, instead of the original vertical positioning
-26 grams AUW
-LOADS OF FUN!!! the vertical is amazing, motor and batt stay cool

Not surprised this thread is so huge and yes this could be a good beginner plane if set up properly and lots of expo

Glad to see you've joined the nutter club and having nutty fun with something soooo simple.

How about a picture or two.

Pizza is worth a repeat!
I figured there were so many around here that mine would be one in a dozen but here are some pictures! I just flew it in a clear space in the forest here, perfect! Sorry, no videos of that..

I fly about 7 minutes on 150mA and everything is dead cool. It accelerates vertical effortlessly. This thing is a LOT of fun.

Maybe I'll cut some foam out of the winglets and elevator and cover with light film. Not sure on the savings to be had.
