  • 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 ~~

A word of thanks
« on: September 11, 2018, 20:45:25 »
I would like to say thanks to all the people that offered words of encouragement when i was trying to learn to fly fixed wing.....more importantly flying wing planes.
I went the hard way, and struggled on with wings, in the mean time i got a Volantex Ranger 1600 pusher, flew that on buddy box for a while, built up a tiny bit of much needed confidence, each flight getting better, to a point of not needing buddy box, then the big scary moment, solo flight with C1 chaser wing, a little cheat as some would say, Eagle tree guardian, what a turning point, had about ten flights with chaser and just love flying it.

And now with more progress i have started to fly the rc equivalent of a jet fighter again with guardian fitted, the Eashine blackwing 680, known as batwing.
cheers guys<br /><br /><br />Alice Werner<br /><br /><br />

I have already swapped the prop out from 6x4.5 bn to an APC 6x5.5, as the motor is an 1800kv

Chaser is just superb, it has no bad points at all, 2 of my friends have them as well. It can do fast (mine) slow long range, no nasty stalling, looks nice, tough what more can you ask of a wing
