  • 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

  • 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: @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 ~~

[WEEKLY CHALLENGE SERIES] #7 - Knife Edge
« on: June 25, 2018, 08:36:59 »
Last week got a lot of entries, it was great seeing the submissions roll in  :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

This week let's try another lesser seen move, the knife-edge ....

The gap doesn't have to be as tight as the one Steele hits in his video below. The idea is to be punch forward, zero-throttle + 90 degree snap-roll through a gap and then snap-roll back to level and throttle out.

One variation if you can't find a decent gap is to knife-edge "ride" along a row of trees / hedge / goal-post cross-bar (Cheredanine) / wall (higher-risk) ... the skill here is to snap-roll 90 degrees and then snap-roll back to level.

Good luck and have fun.

I suspect these guys won't last. They'll fall out over something petty, the producer will be trying to make 'it' happen, forcing the development of artificial personas and removing the individuality of the very people he recruited in the first place ..... oh wait ...

I'll not respond to this the way you all want me to, although I'll take the fact he copying me. 🤣

I just wish he'd copy my haircut though. We'd all be much happier with him! 🤣

I think you've set the bar too high Daich :notworthy:.

I had a couple goes of this one at the BFU. Would like to find a tighter gap though, one that i couldn't fit flat through.

First time I've attempted a Knife Edge.
This sort of 'looks' right for a brief second or two



Again - Thanks to Chris (Lamaule) for the 'tight tune' - The PIDs are great

The problem you have with both lookbacks and knifeedge mate is both manoeuvres require momentum, your 3inch has much less mass than 5 inch freestyle quads with a session mounted (less than half the mass) se to get the same manoeuvre time you need twice the speed which you don’t have, you would find it far easier to learn these moves on a 5 inch
