Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

Just had to clean a load of dust from my fatshark LCDs, why can't they be properly sealed to stop the ingress of dust and pollen. :/

After last week';s argument with a rugby post playing limbo with some of my clubmates I had to have a look at rebuilding it - Fus was damaged beyond repair, I couldn';t get the thrust line correct.
I ordered a new Fus and canopy from RC Model centre, very good prices, well packed and short delivery - 2 days!
First thing was to strip the useful parts out of the Fus and evaluate whether or not they needed to be replace - fortunately not!
Next tidy the wing up - boiling water gets rid of dents quite well (be careful it doesn';t stray onto your fingers it bl@@dy hurts!).
Next part was to start installing the old reclaimed bits in the new Fus - medium cyano worked nicely.
At the moment i';m waiting for an aluminium motor mount - the original plastic ones can self destruct if you use a tuned power set usually results in ripping the whole of the front of the plane off!!!
Anyway piccies of work so far:

Mine came with both plastic & aluminium  :smiley: There is a company on ebay selling CF mounts  ;)

DarrellW

I know about the CF motor mount  but prefer aluminium,  quite a bit cheaper as well  - my Funcub has always been tail heavy so aluminium being heavier than cf makes it the best choice!

I like the mustard yellow paint job, nicely done ~~
Why use 4 motors when you can use 6?
