Sweet 450, that'll be fun...Checked the weather and it should be calm winds this weekend, so going to fly the crap outta the lama (lol llama heheh)...can't wait til tomorrow, going to skip out on work a tad early and give it a go

hopefully I don't break anything major before the weekend, then I'll be stuck with only the simulator :laugh:

I'll let ya know how it goes, I hear co-axials are the way to go for beginners. Not expecting anything besides hovering and a higher degree of control than the air hog 2-ch's.

I've been thinking I'd enjoy an RC electric boat. I talked with the owner of the local hobbyshop and he told me that kits arn't really available anymore. Most boats are made rtr. I really enjoy building and don't want to start that way. I'm interested in the deep-v and deep-v modified hulls uo 36". A few months ago I found a website for a company in California that makes some really nice aftermarket gear and offered some hulls. I've been unable to find the site again and was wondering if anyone knows of it?

just the first one I hit......http://www.funrcboats.com/category.aspx?categoryID=165

Also bring a fishing pole and about 2 ounces of sinkers, just in case something goes wrong while out in the water. Unless you have a boat to chase it!

Thanks, I appreciate it. i must be blind, I don't know how i can miss things sometimes. I need something for fly fishing, so I'm considering a float chair with an electric motor. I think it would work well for both applications.

I have to agree. The chair is a great idea.

I used to run a twin electric motored boat, was about 3 foot long. It was a blast chasing ducks and gulls with it, untill the batteries went dead...lol

coaxials are pretty good for beginners it seems.You just cant do banked turns,they just seem to turn level.As long as it is a proportonal control system,its pretty easy to get the hang of,just try to do small movements on the sticks.Its fun though. :)

Also on mine i have the blades slightly loose so if they hit anything thay are less likely to break.

Hey infrared,i found a place that sells small jets too,the real mccoy :)

Looks like we need some Sailplanes in the thread..

I started flying RC in 1977 and started off on Sailplanes and never looked back. I did try a power plane for a summer along with my Soaring, but they didn't stay up that long and didn't fly that fast. And then you had the gunk on your hands and transmitter... yuck..

Mainly I fly Thermal Duration, but have flown some slope planes while stationed in Germany and also added a Discus launch glider (DLG) to the hanger.

The large white sailplane below is a Windsong and carries a Camera and Altimeter. I have flown her to 3740 ft AGL and took some great pic's with it inflt.

All of these sailplanes carry 6 servos and are controlled by JR 347 and 8103 radios...

Dodgson Designs Windsong and Camano

the more i think about adding control rods to the plane, the less I want to. i put 3 drawings together real quick to explain what I'm thinking.
In the first pic, it demonstrates what it would look like if I just added an extra line. because the tail shaft isn't centered on the gear, control surface movements would not be equal
the second pic, i could add a piece of carbon fibre tube cut from the old fusalage and attach it to bring the enry point to center on the gear
the third pic, i could use a peice of rigid wire to elevate the lines

I think that the rigid wire would be better for balance but the tube would stand up to crashes better. If the wire bends, it could be a pain to straighten.

I still have all my busted parts so there are some materials here. The original fishing line had metal crimps at the gear end to hold it in place, they were replaced by fake salmon eggs cause well ... i had some lol. My goal is to not screw up the balance too bad so i dont have to use much weight to correct it.


Any thoughts?

Yeah, jets are very cool! My mate Ed, the lodger (lives in my attic!!!) has a jet. (attached)

Uses a Wren 54.

Also, there's a pic I found from roughly 4 months back of my BadBoy. It's a Profile 3d plane powered by an OS 55AX. Plane got chucked because i hated the way it flew, the engine is now in a WestonUK Hype3D, basically a bigger version of the plane in my first post.

Passed my "B" certificate last week, so i can now fly at shows and comps, and I'm entering the British Freestyle Aerobatic Championships competition with THIS plane in August!! Mine is a Red and white color scheme tho. I'll get some pics of mine when i've got it looking presentable! Only just been repaired after a deadstick landing went wrong, and it's in need of re-covering!

EDIT:

Good stuff Bytor! Sailplanes are awesome! Was thinking of building a glider for this summer but never got round to it. Added to list!

Crashed the Lama into the neighbors second story, had enough sense to cut power before stripping out the gears. Blew off the stabilizer bar, landing gear, and training set.
Tore it apart, the gears and shafts seem straight and un-damaged, the only apparent damage was three of the four rotor blades. Two of them had sliced edges and the third lost 3/4" from the tip.

So I'm out of spare blades, thought I read on a heli forum you could cut the tips off broken blades? If the two (on the same plane) are the same length it'll work?

If I can't 'shorten' the blades I'll have to be careful until Thurs when my spares get in.

Any thoughts on shortening the blades?

Hi all

I just picked up an new rc, first nitro is a T-Maxx 2.5. :rockout:

http://www.hobbytron.com/traxxas-t-maxx.html

The anticipation during breakin was killing me so ... yeah :) I almost made 8 tanks before I now have to do my first repairs. Streering doesn't seem to work so well anymore, the aircleaner plugs too fast, and I'm considering a digital temp tunning unit. There are lots of parts avail for this truck so this should be fun:)
Anyone have any tips or advice they'd like to share?

i have had a few RC's im my time 2 buggies, 2 planes, 1 boat, 1 chopper, and also flown a mates glider a few times, the chopper and 1 plane are only small electric ones but still fun, when i was younger i built a trainer plane with a .40 engin in it and had a bad first flight i dont think i will be doing that again, i flew it on our farm, and got it in the air after almost nose diving it 3 times, started to bank around to the right and i dont know how but i know how but i knoecked the aleron trim and was fighting to keep it from rolling to the right even more, just missed the roof of the house and then it flew over the road (trust me i didnt want it too) and way too low it just missed the cab of a truck and fair wedged its self up a tree, the plane is fine with only 2 small dints the the leading edge of the wing... but from now on i think i will stick to things with wheels

my mates also recored all of this to dvd pluss the other stupid things i have done (sand boarding, bmxing down sand dunes, rockets and many other things. i think it should be called rampage gone wrong..lol)

I got myself a esky honey bee cp2. Im a total newb to rc stuff, so i already crashed it :D just as i found out how to hover 30cm over the ground, a wind came and took my heli into a tree.. Both wings got smashed and my servo's are trashed :\ getting some replacements friday :) Should i order a simulator thingy for the computer? cause its really hard to fly.. or maybe i just havent tweaked it as i should :D

how you likin' your Tmaxx? you got it new RTR? did you order or was it local?

i missed a great deal on a REVO 3.3 over the weekend cuz i was at the track :eek:

now i'm back in town and on a hunt :pimp:

:toast:

:rockout: It's great!, would buy it again. Yeah it was RTR

i told the guy at the hobby store I wanted everything I needed to play that day. I know it was an invite to sell me what i don't need but he seemed to do ok. truck cost me $299 plus all the extras. So far I'm happy. Did I pay too much?
