  • shawdreamer: back in the days of arton sennsa and nigel mansell a race was always closer, even though the cars back then wernt as limited and standardized across the teams as todays the drivers unique skills had a massive factor in how a race would pan out.... either way it was always a guaranteed sight to see..... same situ in footy, back in the days of vinny jones and the like, they took a nasty tackle and dislocated there knee, quick spit and wipe off and up they got to take the free kick, nowadays a fan calls them a poofters and they dive on the floor and throw a tantrum like a five yr old whos been told they cant have any sweeties.

  • ched999uk: You are right about the entertainment factor. I think F1 is entertaining provided there are some closely matched competition or weather. I like teh fact that on some tracks a single slight error can cost the driver the race in F1. I used to love the, I think it was Rally Cross in the 80's. Saw some live with Metro XR4 at Brans, just amazing control. That was entertaining as rally+tarmac and cars racing each other side by side.

  • Reman: I never really liked F1. It was too all or nothing for my liking. The driver had to get every racing line, breaking point and gear change right to have a chance at winning. In rallying, someone could barrel roll their car into a ravine, but if they could get back on the track and had a big enough lead they could still wind up finishing in a podium position. Now THAT'S  entertainment. :)

  • JeremyE: The surface is constantly changing and you have way less time to react.
    June 27, 2017, 10:55:22
  • JeremyE: F1 requires way more skill!
    June 27, 2017, 10:54:31
  • ched999uk: Rally is great to watch and they display amazing control and skill. The problem for me is only seeing very limited clips of cars and it's a tie trial only. OK so the surface changes and they don't get to try the track before it matters. I like to see F1 drivers overtaking, OK so before anyone says what overtake in F1, it is getting better :)
    June 27, 2017, 10:35:24
  • shawdreamer: dont mean to take anything away from F1 drivers but when they race they rely on the road surface being dependably and consistently the same everytime..... a rally driver has to has to adjust his technique on every single turn and bend and take account that everytime another vehicle go's through that turn and bend ahead of his it changes the nature of the surface, F1 drivers are skilled, Rally drivers are skilled and brave..... and more than a little nuts

  • Hozza: BTCC is a good one to watch also, after all rubbing is racing
    June 26, 2017, 15:24:51
  • ched999uk: true
    June 26, 2017, 10:31:03
  • shawdreamer: "once ina while" is all very good with F1 but you watch a rally and everytime its a spectacle.
    June 26, 2017, 09:10:35
  • ched999uk: I assume you missed the F1 today. It was ore like rally cross!!!

Really beautiful day today, so I thought I'd best get my (second-hand) Falcon wing. Gotta say, I'm loving it -  sideways launching took a bit of getting used to, and daaaaarn the thing is responsive (50% throws on elevon mix, 30% expo). Bit hard to fly LOS due to not being totally certain how much input to use, FPV was a real treat though.

Video:


Can not wait til my Venturi (54" wingspan FPV offering also from FlyingWings) arrives (got the electronics, snazzy black and blue laminate film, Storm OSD - just waiting for the frame delivery) - reckon it will be a fantastic Winter project.

Nicely done sir ~~  That all looked rather tidy.  I'm liking the countryside you've got to play in.  Spectacular.

What hap to the video at the end, black screen?

Thanks! I love how it handles, even if I did have a few aborted launches haha!

Mobius battery went, couldn't be bothered to splice a landing in because it was already getting too long (although I underestimated how long the fade-to-black would be with music added  :whistling:) :P

Yeah - I was gonna go with Rommie's nice Z2, but Rob finally got back to me after months of pestering about venturi coming back in stock - as much as I'd like a Z2, it was going to be a bit awkward to ship it and I'd kinda rather start from scratch (so I could learn something)

If the falcon is anything to go by, the venturi is going to be fun

Anyone know how the Falcon compares to the Teksumo?  The Teksumo is only £20 vs £50 for the Falcon, just wondering if its twice as good...

I've got a Teksumo on 4s and it's great fun, will do pretty much unlimited vertical  :laugh:

Haven't tried it with FPV yet just LOS, wondering whether to convert it or if the Falcon would be better

Dunno how they compare, from FPV vids of the teksumo I'd say it handles the gear well.. I'd try it out, duct tape some FPV gear on and have a play! Think the only benefit the falcon has is a dedicated camera box and what looks like thicker foam so parts can be embedded/mounted flush and laminated for strength :)

I have a mini camera and transmitter on order so may just do that.  Although I bought them as I fancy "FPV'ing" my Funcub, just to see what that's like  ::)
