  • 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.  ::)

  • 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 ~~

#Ruddy flying wings#
« on: April 15, 2018, 09:15:28 »
So i am building, nearly finished a Skywalker X5 1180 wing, it has gone fairly well so far, now we are at the stage of getting right lipo for CG.....point blank i WILL NOT buy any more potential fire bombs, so i am trying my eclectic collection of lipo`s and the only one that fits, just  and gives CG is the 3000mah zippy..........so looks like i am going to have to add luggage to the front, at least it will give me 6 packs to go at doing it this way, or maybe carve some foam from the hatch and parallel a pair in it, if i can find my connector!
will be running 2212 1400kv, 8x4 prop 30 amp HK blue esc and Eagle tree guardian (when it arrives)<br /><br />

If it only takes a small amount of forward shift in the battery to get balance it might be worth carving the  batt bay out and gorilla gluing some thin ply to reinforce it . Fine tuning the C.O.G. with small pieces of lead under the batt.

If you’ve got any mini quad batteries you can always parallel one of those.

I have no choice but to re design the internal layout to take a pair in parallel
