A couple of the guys around here love the Airtronics 10 channel and are glad others have not snatched them up. They feel more elite and special that way.

I'd love to play more with an Aurora 9 and if the winter goes well I might pick one up but Matt says it better not eat into the SEFF fund for me

Really? HK Lipo battery fire in fedex station?

i've started listening to the podcasts. Its great stuff. I was at SEFF 2010 but didn't introduce myself - but i will in 2011.

I was listening to a recent podcast about how you guys were relating a story about a mislabeled shipment of lipo batteries from hobbyking catching fire in a fedex sorting station in CA. It sounded scary - but then I got to thinking - I've ordered from HK a ridiculous number of times in the past 14 months (i think 15 orders) and fedex aint never showed up at my doorstep with a hobbyking package.

Are we sure hobbyking was somehow at fault?

Sorry for the dumb question on an old podcast...

Lucien said he "Heard" about this somewhere and didn't have all the details. At this point we have not been able to confirm the details. I think he is back in town tonight and hopefully will join us on the show. We will see if we can get more firm details.

I thought I read an updated news story that it was not, in fact, lipos but nimh or nicads that went up. Try googling.

Jamie,

I put the CG up on the website in the products page under each product. Thanks for the heads up on the oversight.

New SlowBipe TwinBipe Build Thread


I started a build thread for a new plane. I'm calling it the TwinBipe for now for lack of a better name. It is very large and is designed for FPV/Aerial Video.

Check it out at https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...light=slowbipe.

Things I Learned This Weekend


Things I learned this weekend:

The SlowBipe is a cute little airplane, and is relaxing to fly (when flown correctly)
If you fly a SlowBipe incorrectly, you can go beyone Vne
Vne on a SlowBipe is pretty low
The ne part of Vne is important
If you e Vne with a SlowBipe, bad things happen
A SlowBipe that loses its wings at 50' becomes a lawn dart
A lawn dart that has control of elevator and rudder does funny things
A SlowBipe that does a nose plant from 50' can be repaired in about 45 minutes

I don't want to learn anything next weekend...

I push the struts on the slowbipe in a bit so they don't come off. Not flush.
Did you upgrade the motor annarelli? My stock motor with 3s and can push it as hard as it allows without issues.



attf #146 is up!
