Selling another 250 Heli - 59 euros receiver ready with two lipos. Selling because too many helis and not enough time.  Decided to focus on 450 and bigger helis. Just a quick simple video to show it flies (hovering in garage, too windy and rainy to go outside today)

Well here are a few pictures of my flying this morning..... One model is a modified Vortex RC Speedster and the other is a modified Kaiser MK II.... the Kaiser has been made in HD thermocol which has been cut out of packing material thermocol..... Both the models fly like a dream and are excellent when flown through a series of aeros.... Have reinforced their wings with Balsa spars for taking the added "G" forces for the aeros.... well hope you enjoy the pictures...

Here are the pictures as requested by you...  Well it is a Balsa wood fuselage sides with HD foam inset for the thickness.  You can also see the hard wood skid below the fuselage.... I use the wood strips used by carpenters for their work as hard wood skids.

Well..... last week we had a real interesting episode..... we lost an FPV model and then found it intact some 15 miles away....

Here is how it went.  Me and a few aeromodelling friends had gone to Phaphamau for early morning flying and I did my first launch on the Kaiser Mk II... excellent aerobatic flight.  As I landed I was preparing my Super Pacer for the Maiden flight as a friend was preparing for his FPV.

He launched the model and within minutes he lost Radio contact and the model took off on its own.  The friend tried his level best to raise the height of the Camera Rx to get more range and switched over to his long range module on the RX Set..... No positive result.... we tried doing this for good about 15 minutes.  The RTH was reducing..... This it suddenly dawned on me that was the Return to Home set on the model... if yes it should have come back home..... on check the answer was a big NO.

Well... another bright idea.... Straightaway asked my friend to call his friend who lives near our regular flying location.... Maybe the RTH was still set to the previous location..... As luck would have it the friend said ...... well I can see your model flying overhead and circling but am unable to find you.... he inquired as to where we were flying from... Straightaway.... my friend drove to the earlier field some 15 Kms away....  The model had flown to the earlier field as the RTH was set to that location and flew till the time the battery lasted.  Thereafter it landed smoothly just on the outskirts of the field.  The other friend was there to retrieve it safely.

Well.... a model with all the costly gadgetry was lost... and well... due to the gadgetry working as it should have worked in case of signal failure.... the model was recovered safely.

Happy Landings.....

@shobhit sir,
First class episode for this thread!
Good that you found it and that there was no accident on the way.
Free lessons for us.
BTW, quad or fixed wing?
Regards.

Well.... if we had lost it.... me and my friends wife's would have killed us for loosing the model for a stupid reason.... the reason was..... well.... the battery for the range extension module was cot connected and as soon as the model went about 50 mtrs away.... it lost radio contact..... after about 8 minutes we realised this but by then the model was some 9 kms away.... still relaying the video from the FPV camera........ on the video my friend realised that the RTH distance is reducing.... that's when we realised that the RTH was somewhere else..... maybe our last flying ground.

well... S 174...... if I can reword your question..... what model does he use a scratch built or an ARF....... well he uses an ARF. 

OK.... I believe that this hobby is for self built either through a kit or a scratch built one....... that's the real essence of this hobby.... The ARF have actually killed the hobby.........

Yes, but sometimes we have to depend on ARF due to lack of building material  Sad, for eg: something like this https://www.rcsportz.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=50

@Voiceofdeaf, if you are a beginner, use depron/thermocol wing and reduce weight as much as possible . If so, less chance of crash, and even if you crash, less effort is in vain.

but if he crashes;
depron cracks/breaks.
and depron is expensive.
if he breaks a corro plane; he will lose approx. 200 Rupees.

Don't wake a Tiger until you've factored the teeth



Corro is very easy to repair. Hot Glue Cheesy

Can also change a section

Depron models are lighter though. Good for Trainers & 3D

Well see..... Initially all people break models... The story is like this.....
Last year I broke my favorite model and it was in pieces.  even the motor was destroyed.  It was an aerobatic 5 feet span model weighting some 1.7 kgs.

I called up my father and told him that I lost my best model today and am sad about it... His reply was to the point.... and apt.

he said.... "so what?  so have broken all the models you have made till date... so thats nothing new.... some you broke in a couple of days and some in a couple of years.  Make a new old..."

well I was inspired and made the model afresh and am loving flying that model now.

See I make my own models with what ever thermocol I can lay my hands on.  I prefer packing material thermocol and so I puck up packing material from where ever I can.  The local "KABADI" is one big bet.

You may see my thread and see how I made my Kaiser......

total cost of the model is some Rs 500/- minus the electronics and remote...  also thermocol can be repaired easily... just cut out the proken piece and put a fresh one in its place.......

 I am planning to buy the Condor Nitro RC Buggy Kit from http://www.thehobbyworx.com/rc-cars/nitro-gas-cars/self-assembly/condor-self-build-nitro-rc-buggy-kit.html  It features a strong alloy chassis, shaft driven 4WD system, oil filled shocks, front and rear differentials and sealed radio tray. The Condor is powered by a SH size 18 engine I have seen a lot of models of this size which come with .15 engines so this has a stronger and better engine. What do you suggest guys? Is it good choice?
