  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • mo_miah: Gav- if its a camera ship then TBS crossfire is definitely what you need, the FrSky has limited channels and telemetry options, TBS crossfire has much better features and more channels to control camera gimbals etc

  • DarkButterfly: My laminate arrived, the rebuild is coming along ~~

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..

  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

  • atomiclama: Thanks, can't decide on fibre glass or laminate. Like the idea of fibre for some reason, don't know why.

  • atomiclama: Anyone fibre glass coat their wings??
    September 05, 2018, 09:30:22
  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

    September 05, 2018, 09:10:18
  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:

  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Hi from darkest Warwickshire.
« on: October 10, 2017, 19:42:35 »
Hi..

I';ve been reading up on here, watching some of the vid';s on the tube over the last few months.  Today I received my first drone, a Syma x5sc to learn on and crash and try again.  ;)

It only arrived about an hour ago, but I got it out the box, and as there was a small amount in the battery I had to have a go indoors.

Just a little hover in the living room,  no more than a foot high, and a little tour around the floor, much to the amusement of my better half.  I';ve got a long way to go, I';m sure I';ll get the hang of it, I do drive a 44-ton truck after all.  :sweating:

I';m sure I';ll be doing a load more reading and watching vids,  also the odd questions.  :cool:

Funny you should say that....I';ve been reading up on the kit side of drones.
As I love tinkering with stuff like this l can see that as a project.

Andy
Does the "LOT" of fun have anything to do with the advert that follows your post????    :wack0    :crossfingers:

Hi Icefever, I guess you';re soon going to get DAS (Drone Acquisition Syndrome), it';s no good trying to resist it just happens and boy does your bank account and plastic know about it ::)
A decent start, Syma make decent toy grade models, once you get the hang of it you';re going to want something more serious; first decide what you want to do with it - Race or Aerial photography or just generally whizzing about and then ask advice - good advice will be freely given, you';re in the right place!
