I fly on the weekends
I'll leave this here
Hot glue will fix that.
It's already back in the air. Got a new body for cheap. Put the foam in hotwater to relax it, added toothpicks and clue those in, followed by CA clue Fixed this one and about to buy another cub I found very cheap.
This sh** is addicting..lol Dad seems like he wants to fly so that's why I'm looking at another plane.
Yea I am looking at getting me another one myself.
I'm looking at the Hobbyking Bixler 3. I loved the one I had
I started with a Gentlelady sailplane. I slope soared that on any ridge with wind I could find for lift.
Got better and built faster slope soars and bigger thermal lift sail planes I'd use a high start to launch.
Then got into power planes, mostly .40 size gas. Augered a lot of those....
Started on 1/4 scales after that with a Telemaster ( to tow up other sailplanes ) then a Piper J-3 cub..
For some reason that I don't remember, got out of it. Sold off or gave away everything....
Now yous guys got me surfing R/C shops...
I'm looking at one of these, a tiny version of the 2 meter beast I flew this weekend. I figure it'll be a super convenient grab and go plane that will fit in any car, and really easy to fly. The only thing bad about small planes is that they are squirrely in just about any wind, but that can be solved with a gyro.
I used to fly cheap 3 channels back on grad school. I haven't flown in years except for small, cheap indoor helicopters. There's an RC club that meets within walking distance of my house, so I need to get back into the hobby sooner or later.
i had a skyhunter in that size, ever since i told myself they have to be bigger than 1200mm lol.
I got plenty of space to fly and have come to really like a flying wing. Hell I might break out the chaser again and get it back in the air lol
Picked this guy up
This planes flies so easy. I flew in low rate with a training box as I really didn't know what to expect. I love..love this bird. Doesn't need the amount of input as the Carbon Cub tail dragger, obviously. I just flew in clockwise/counter-clockwise pattern to get a feel for it, some figure 8's. Did a barrel roll and loop, inline twist. I'm grinning ear to ear.
Looks like a Spitfire but has US markings? Wingspan?
I was flying this VTOL yesterday. Wingspan is ~11 feet.
For perspective, the hover props are 24" and pusher prop 20", the battery system is 2 x 22,000 mAh 6S batteries - 50v system. It will climb at a rate of 25 MPH, dive 110+ MPH and cruise at 80+ MPH. It's a versatile beast.
P-51 Mustang 1.1m got it for $150 w/ free receiver
Would love to see this fly.
I do have a multi engine I'm currently building...it's yuge.
Raining too hard to fly today. Maintenance time.
Definitely has the underside of a Mustang, but that wing looks like it came off a Spitfire to me.
That thing is a beast!! Is it a kit?
@htperry how did you get those props to index that way in flight?
@Djstorm100 that 47D is purty.
Dang it, yall are going to make me break out my stuff. I got out of RC to get into guns lol
In a word - yes. Pieces come in a coffin size box. It's quite a box of parts - of course, made in China, no instructions. There's a lot to build, make and fabricate - then tune.
It's just the wind. They freewheel in plane mode.
What the kit to build that.. LOL In the picture with your laptop, looks like under motor is pulley (like off a car). Had me thinking..."that thing is powered by a belt?!?"
Plane I'm currently build is going to be sweet. I'm so excited.
Djstorm100 has two planes here. The one on the picnic table and flying with the invasion stripes on the underside of the wings is a P-47. In his garage on the floor with the yellow tail and belly scoop is a P-51d (bubble canopy).
Ah, I was looking at the P-47, at least at first. Thanks for clearing that up.
Broke out my helicopters a few days ago. I built them all an converted them to electric. Unfortunately, I'm gonna have to buy a couple of batterys (too weak to do much, and they ain't cheap) for the two 600 size birds. The batts for my little fixed pitch bird have held up OK.
Beautiful day to fly today - after a couple days of torrential rains. So good to see blue skies.
I'm surprised Mr TopRudder isn' t here yet!
Got the P51D in the air. Felt nice but after the 3rd barrel roll, a alerion servo died. Rolled over in to the ground. Need new wing, fuselage has some rash but, it add character.
I like these guys. I binged watched them a while back. The flying toaster and cinderblock were pretty funny. If I get back into RC I think I'm going to try something from these guys. I have all the electronics already somewhere.
I've got one of these sitting in the box, just way too busy to slap it together.
I found them today, when I get more free time, someday. I like their shop and how they explain what they are doing.
yea and some of the guys have some pretty good aerodynamics background. They push the boundaries of what can be done and if successful they'll make a kit. The flying Little-tikes car was pretty epic.
I'm not busy.... I'll do it !
Been building a project I've been keeping it low key. However..I hate painting..but it does look 100x better.
Beautiful day to make a video. A co-worker and I spent a few hours flying for video and edited this for our work.
@htperry How do you get one of those? It looks like this, but that isn't a HobbyZone type plane by a long shot, nor is there a "buy this" link. I can't find much else about it...
I work for RADeCO in the R&D of that craft and other unmanned autonomous ground/sea/air vehicles. It was a pretty day, so Luke and I decided to make a video that the boss okay'd for public use. Recently, the bosses have decided it's okay to talk a bit about our products online. RADeCO is a 50 year old company in CT and not used to the online world. The skunk works is here - where I work and the magic happens.
Well, that explains it then.
From your earlier post about it coming in a big box from China I thought it was a personal purchase. When I saw the website, I was rethinking that theory...
Does 400 mile range mean 800 mile round trip or 400 one way? 400 is really impressive for electric in my book in any case.
