  • 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

  • Gav: mo miah - wanna swap from immertionRC UHF and try something else on my camera Ship.

  • 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.

  • Bad Raven: Usng PolyC, yes
    September 05, 2018, 10:13:54
  • 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:
    September 05, 2018, 08:47:37
  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Motor recommendations
« on: July 11, 2018, 19:55:53 »
So last Friday I seriously killed my Air-Ro crashing into a viaduct, I thought the damage was a lot worse at the time...

All I need is new motors and a FPV camera, I was running T-motor F20 II 3750kv do I buy these again or is there another option?

Cheers Paul

Hozza.
4 inch quads generally use 1407/6 3600kv pretty well.
The brother t1s are sort of the bench mark
The only motors that give more performance I have found are the f20ii and brother 1507 4100kv. The brother though eat lipos, the 3600kv may be a better option

As I say mate, I only tried the 4100kv, they are very nice motors, but they ate lipos, assuming 3600kv will be less power hungry
