RC India - Flying and racing with open minds !



I have been travelling, so no flying this month  Sad

But I have been able to collect/buy RC stuff, and avoid paying shipping charges !  Wink

Figured out that RC Universe is a good place to pick up stuff, if you are in this region.  For example, there are some great deals on radio stuff here :  http://www.rcuniverse.com/market/category.cfm?catID=29

Some  sellers on RCU ship international too !

This week as usual two day flying!! Saturday and Sunday!!

Saturday was quite uneventful with two sessions.  One in the morning and one in the evening.  Both the sessions were too windy but I was able to fly my Funstar and the Seduction.  Flew a couple of sorties.  Had tuning issues on the Funstar and also 3 deadstick landings on stiff winds.  But managed to get her back in one piece.  Evening, the engine issue was sorted out and had a couple of flights but still was not comfortable with the plane.  Flew till sunset and came back.  The main reason for the evening sortie was because a friend of mine wanted to maiden his new Bandit Turbine Jet.  But due to failing light and some programming issues on the TX, we were unable to do so.  Packed up and reached home after dark!!  No building and no tweaking at home.  Left the planes in the car for Sunday morning!!

On Sunday, I reached the field early and the winds were still very high!  Got out the Seduction and took a sortie.  My usual maneuvers.. Knife edges, low level inverted passes, snap rolls and the works!! Everything was picture perfect and the landing was very tricky!! We had the wind 90 deg cross from the runway and I had to crab it in!! But the landing was also good enough and I decided to pack it up as the winds were literally howling and I did not want to fly a pattern plane in those winds!!  Time for the Funstar! Did some minute adjustments on the tuning and took off!! Felt really confident for the first time with this model (been flying it only recently)!! Put her through all the low level aerobatics.  Four point rolls, squares, snap rolls, hovers, harriers, inverted harriers, flat spins, inverted flat spins etc..  Hovers and harriers were always breaking away to the left.  Found the cause to be left thrust on the plane!!  I would be changing the thrust line and adding a couple of washers to give it a degree of right thrust!!  Also have ordered a couple of 10 x 4 props which would be perfect for 3D for this engine!!  This time also I had a few dead sticks all which were handled correctly!! (I even have a video of me doing an inverted harrier quite low and the engine quit!! Had to take a quick circuit and float her down!) Would post some videos later on!!

The turbine was also maidened on Sunday morning!! Flies like a beast!!  Landings were very difficult in those winds!! But was amazing to watch!  Would also upload that video here!!

Happy Landings!!

Hey guys,

Posting my first video in RCIndia.. This was taken a month ago in Sholavaram.. Was flying the Seduction on a heavily repaired wing which I had considered to be a writeoff long back.. Let the video speak for itself :p!! Though the whole video was shot on a single sortie, it would be in parts.. Thanks to Vikram for the video.. Would appreciate your valuable comments!!

today was  a great day of flying .
The Maiden of the SUB MICRO TUFFY  was the highlight .
The Piaget and the rebuilt Katana flew wonderfully   once again proving real thrillers from the TECHONE Shock flyers .

Flying the Easy cub and Saju's SLOWSTICK was really relaxing .

Will post a separate thread on the SM Tuffy soon ,
The Plane is a SPAD , 18 " wing span pusher AUW 110 gms

Today was a real fun flying day  Grin.
Flew Saju's Slow stick first  rather we hovered it for 10 mins each adjusting to the wind and just about keeping it in head wind .
The slow stick take off was close to VTO 6 " rolling at best .
Then cam e the highlight of the day the Maiden of the Multiplex Twin star  Clap

This plane is one amazing plane , flew 2 sorties of around 20 mins each on a single charge on the 11.1V 4300 mah battery  and what we were left with was astounding the Voltage on the Battery had dropped from 4.07 per cell to 3.73 per cell . I am sure a 1 hour + flying time is easily possible on this plane .
Will post some Videos later .
A truly amazing Plane  Clap

Hi guys,

Had some serious things to sort out this weekend.  First, I had to test out my new Tx and Rxs.. I fished out a very old model from my hangar (even older than me)!! A .60 size King Kobra and got everything rigged.  Servos were Dong Yang standard servos, the engine was a .60 OS FSR, the RX was a 606 2.4 Ghz Futaba Rx and the Tx was the Futaba 10CHG.. Did all the programming required.  Took about 15 mins with the Tx to setup to the model details, triple rates, servo travel / reversing etc.. and maidened the plane after 27 long years of hangar life on Saturday..It flew great though it was a bit heavy for the engine.. tracked beautifully well and rolls and loops were perfect... landings were very fast but very stable..had some solid fun with it... flew about 4 sorties.. the engine also proved to be perfect after 25 years of storage!! reliable and solid.. Finally when I went in for that "one more sortie"! the landing was a bit bumpy and the wood on one of the landing gear gave way..nothing serious except that I have to sit to stick back the landing gear plate!!

Ultimate thing is, I tested my radio on a 6 ch 2.4 Rx and it worked perfect and I was able to get my programming straight with the Tx.. No probs whatsoever..

Went back home, dumped this plane and took the electric Yak and the Funstar to the field on Sunday.. I have retired the King Kobra from active service and the Rx was transferred to the Yak permanently!! The Funstar was given a 617FS 7 channel Rx.. I had a problem with the Funstar's exhaust popping off so I had to get that ready!! And the Yaks old problem persisted and I decided to get that sorted out in the field..

On the field, the Funstar was flown with my new radio setup and it was good for the first sortie.. The second sortie, the exhaust popped off!!  I did 8 more sorties on the Funstar without the exhaust!! Loads of complaints about noise pollution from fellow flyers Cheesy Cheesy!! Overall a great day with the Funstar...

I tried resetting the Yak's ESC and still it didnt solve the problem, so I tried replacing the ESC.. unluckily my other ESC had smaller bullet connectors, so packed up and left it for sometime this week...

The only thing left to test is my 8 channel high speed Rx which I am reserving for my 50cc bird!!

Would post some pics from the field soon...Still no radio pics Sad!! Too excited about flying that I forgot to take a pic of the radio!!

This was my dad's first scratch built plane.. so very nostalgic and that was the reason why I dont want to fly it anymore (and probably damage it more!!).. It is going to be hung in my house in Trichy after repairs!!

Crashed my Model while taking off...  Angry
There is a frequency clash... Another pilot who has the same frequency switched on and trying to takeoff at the same time without asking.

Well I recovered and repaired it( ofcourse it is not complete)  Grin
