Welcome Andy777! You might get a better response if you drop your question onto one of the Forums here - answers would just get swamped.  :beer2:

did 'YOU' fly today??

The "usual" fare for a "far too hot for RC" day yesterday. 

One plane lost a prop when the grip released on the prop holder to shaft, temp related. It did it AFTER landing though as the brake engaged!!  :blink

And a quad that worked OK at home refused to arm! (and worked again once home!)

Hey Ho, up there for two hours alone, me and the wildlife anyway, not the slightest breeze.

Not flown for weeks, and now in the process of selling of some stuff, the Inav ar900 is going to a new home and the FX79 2m wing is going, sold the tiny firstar 200 pusher glider, totally fed up with the "cant fly here" every place we go, i honestly think if i keep getting this i will end up losing it and punching the living daylights out of one of these nobs

Under no circumstances punch nobs, first thing to do is a swift kick in the fork (Kin Geri) and when they go down it gives you more time to chose the next impact point. :hmm:

Had a great session today, got my old C1 chaser flying just sweet, did a maiden on the little rainbow 600 just for giggles, but also it was maiden of the small Dohd dart, i removed the zohd stabiliser and fitted an eagle tree guardian, it flies on rails

I flew the C1 chaser again on sunday, really did enjoy putting 3 packs though this great flying wing, and some nice footage of the old quarry

Long time, no post - but managed to get some flying (and diving) in at the unoccupied and very remote Huon and Chesterfield reefs (south pacific, about 400miles east of Australia). Mainly to record the turtles which were massing to fight, shag and lay eggs. At times we felt like we were in an Attenborough programme...

apollo7

I finally did maiden on the Phoenix S 1600, the new one with clip in wings, it went pretty well sloping nicely but i feel it was a little tail heavy and ended with a bad landing, no harm done

Finally a dry day. I got all ready, batts charged, rx fw updated, new rates, thermals on, heated gloves and power pack, hat on. Out we go with fading light. Get to normal flying field and the car park is full, way too many people, next location 2 football matches going on. Quickly try and find a new location, perfect a footpath, no there are cows in fields or big steel fence other side  :angry:
I admitted defeat, came home and will try again tomorrow....
I try :-)

had a fly with the C1 chaser and the ranger G2 trying out yet another motor on the G2 to get it right, now got a sunnysky x2208 1500kv and seems just right, short video from the C1 due to mobius battery cutting out

Converted an old F1 Naze FC Diatone ET 160 with 1104 DYS to F4 (Matek F405 Std) on Sunday evening. £21 spent.

Had SO much fun with it today after a couple of check flights LOS that I flew 6 batteries FPV and all the other quads (inc much more modern/expensive models) remained in the car. Got some fun flips in flat out at about two metres high over the strip.  Was stopping at around 5.5 mins per 850mAh 3S, coming down with 3.75 per cell as I didn't want to push it with the cold (4 degrees at the field)  :azn

SO, just converted an ET 150 DYS 1306, again from and to as above FC's.  Looking forward to tomorrow, as there's no worry with these older quads, can fly like I stole them, as they effectively owe me nothing. Brilliant!  :smiley:

I got to test it briefly last night in the kitchen, wherupon it cut dead three times, and not when throttling much.  Rather puzzled, I decided that the odd third indication of the old and now unknown VTX (other than band and channel) must be power, guessing it was ovrloading the old PDB, but it wasn't the usual one, two or three bar indication, it was a flashing number 6. 6?? Cycling, I found it was 1-6. :shrug:

Anyway, found out how to alter it, button for more than 3 secs but less than 5!  :rolleyes: and set it to 2 which seemed to give a good video image, albeit at no range.

Today at the field?  Perfect all the way to spotter eyesight limit.

Note to self, pay better attention to noting manuals and quad fitted to!!!

flew a few planes today, Ranger G2, new Phoenix S 1600, and my C1 chaser 1200, i ended up doing a little follow me footage, with a ate flying his mini skywalker 1100, this was just LOS and my first go at chasing

Chasing LOS must be quite challenging.
I managed 4 packs on my SkyStars Big Pick X120 today and then 39 seconds on R349 as it started raining!!!

Mate has a Bixler3 with a tube extension up and forwards off the nose as a "selfie" camera.

Looks nasty  :blink , works OK!

I'm usually pretty good at formation aerobatic flying as was in a show demo team many years ago where we formated 12 planes at once.

12?  Well, the 27MHz crystals and iffy radio back then only allowed that!!!

Have largely kept up the skills despite ageing "a little" since the 70's!  :cry

HOWEVER, hanging around with my hack Bixler2 for any length of time in the small "view window" behind mates plane has proven somewhat awkward, not helped by his insistance on throwing full deflection loops and split "S"s with no warning.  :rofl:

Usually ends up with me going full on combat mode, which at least using sods law guarantees no air to air contact mishaps.  :rolleyes:

apollo7

Have to say the chase flight was not planned, and i really enjoyed it, my mate is the one that usually does any chasing, watching the 2 planes hooning along at speed in near formation was great and i will be doing it again

Nice photos and videos! What app do you use for editing? I usually prefer https://www.movavi.com/photo-editor/ and like it a lot. It's quite easy to use, especially when you have high-quality photos.

Why use 4 motors when you can use 6?

Managed to get out for 2 packs yesterday on my lunch break. Found a new practice area which I thought I'd give a go. Nothing overly exciting but it was nice to be out. And of course, I just had to get stuck in a tree.
