  • 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: 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 ~~

Shelly did win! It was good, althoigh I find the concept that RC model pilots would be amazed by fatsharks with head trackers less than credible

I mean, that's got to be the future of the hobby.
Drone wars.
How cool would that be?

That was fun to watch. Can't imagine how much fun it was to fly. Shelly was a great pilot, think she was only one who actually shot enemy down. Roll on ep2.

Yes, well worth the watch.  Quite impressed that they got even vaguely close to the bombing targets LOS.

Oh, how little you know about many RC flying clubs then! 

A member of four clubs, I see what goes on, and it often ain't pretty!

I'd lay odds that far more than you'd expect would have no concept of FPV, let alone Head Tracking.

Faced with 2.4GHz PLANE radio, some would just mumble "there's nuffink wrong wiv me Super Sixty and 35MHz Field Force Tx" (if I can borrow a receiver crystal please, mine's naff).

A fair few think there is only one type of "drone", and its square and white and hovers in the way of their 40 powered Trainer doing not a lot when not in the hands of drug dealers.

I go from a 91 powered "Panic" Biplane (and that is way too alien a concept for some) to a 200 or 250 quad and they bug out, its simply a concept outside their understanding. They are locked in their little bubble from the 80's, let alone the noughties. A couple still wear flares........................  :laugh:

Haha! I know what you mean. My nearest RC club is permanently closed to new members. How welcoming is that?!

I think the program was very good
hopefully it will bring new blood into the hobby
fixed wing, multirotor, helicopter pilots or a mix of all three

if it goes skyward I'll try not to crash it
