Mostly finished building my "nutta" wing and tail. Will get 3gm servos this week and set up the stuff. Hoping to be able to get this up during this week. Yes, raining here too, but thats what the nutta is going to help with.

1. I maiden my own built 32" coroplast winged  Mr. Moss. It flew very well with 2212/13, 9*6 DD Prop and 3 cell Battery.
2. Operated my E-Starter Wing, cut in two parts, to make a low winger plane.

VTOL - Vertical Take Off & Landing



hey guys took out my slowstick for a spin today as driver uncle was free he took a video for me it was too windy in the first trial when he took the video and i got a brushed motor and esc from pramod bhaiya it had a bit less power but flight times were high. in the video it was a short one after that i had a 15-20 min flight don't know the exact time and my batt was drained to a point it needed some charging.

anyway i did some waves going up and down and had a lot of fun will have the videos up today

Maidened by Phoenix Diabolo. Whew! Flies nicely on the 60 FX, if only the spinner supplied by the manufacturer was matching with the rest of the plane it would have been perfect

Had a perfect weekend.. Flew my Seduction after a long time.. Also flew my Yak on an ASP .52.. Felt that it was underpowered and hence put in an OS .60 and it was performing well on a 14x4W APC prop..

Also flew the YAK for an airshow for the Air Force at Avadi.

Moreover witnessed a few turbine sessions on the field..

Best part is.. I started work again on the 50cc.. The wings are now done completely with the servo mounting.. would update my build thread!  Also ordered LiFePo4 batteries for my 50cc Rx and Ignition.. should recieve it by the end of this week.. hoping for a maiden early next week Smiley..

Congrats Chan for the airshow. Looks like Chennai is becoming an RC hotspot!

BTW, a 14x4 prop on a 60 engine seems to be pretty close to the max. Check if the engine overheats or struggles. I have seen that + or - pitch by 1 inch does not make significant difference in prop performance but for diameter change by 1 inch makes a difference in the amount of drag produced by the prop. Thatz because the extra drag is produced at the tip of the prop and the engine feels a greater resistance at its crank shaft. I guess, you have arrived at 14x4 based on 11x7 prop recommendation for the 60.

Hi Ismail,

Yeah true about the prop.. I landed on it with from the recommended 12x6.. But it did not perform well on a 13x4W.. so switched over to 14x4 and had a boost in performance.. Moreover this is the old FSR version.. So my guess is that it requires a heavier prop than today's engines! But I may be wrong..

Hi Anwar,
No pics from the airshow..no cams allowed... Sad!! But it was very good.. and was my first public display!!

As long as the engine is happy and sings to the tune.. no issues. A simple check is to see how the engine's throttle response. If the engines reves up/down almost instantaneous to your stick movement then it should be fine. If it struggles or has a tendency to stall then the prop may be too big for it. Generally, the FSR type are good to handle big props.. they are like Yamaha RX 100s of the RC aircraft world.

Ya the only cams allowed were of the authorised photographers so no pictures of the show.
Sai thanks for the compliment, the katana just did some basic stuff and i chickened out on the landing due to all the trees and handed over the Tx to someone more experienced to land the bird, better that than wrecking the thing in front of spectators

It sings happily with the 14x4.. And the throttle response is very good.. I am even thinking of a 15" prop just to see how it performs.. Also have a couple of 14x6 wooden props to try on!! All would happen this week.. This is the 2nd night sitting on the 50cc.. Things completed so far (yet to update my build thread)..

1. Ailerons hinging
2. Elevator hinging
3. Aileron servo mounting
4. Elevators servo mounting

Tomorrow I woulld complete canopy sticking and rudder hinging in the morning and engine mounting and rudder servo in the evening (hopefully)...

VTOL - Vertical Take Off & Landing



today i flew the slowstick again, work is slowly moving ahead on my yak 54 and the f/a - 18 hornet and one thing i did today was to tape my moms n72 (mobile phone) on to the slowstick but i did not go higher due to fear of the mobile the falling off hence could not get any clear video will try it next time

Great day of flying :
1)Saju's Tuffy was maidened
2) Acro master flew great with new metal gear servos and Assan Receiver
3) Easy cub flew on the Turborix 2.4 G ( same one that need a laptop for programing   Wink )  , great range , but I think I am taking this plane for granted did not check it prior to taking to field , had a rudder and elevator issue gluing which should have been checked and taken care of at home. some field taping  and of she went. Should remember to set it up properly next week end.

RC India - Flying and racing with open minds !



Another great day of flying yesterday, before the start of travel again for a little while.

Santhosh, my brother and another veteran flier named Sebastian were on the field of the college I went to, in Santhosh's home town.  Santhosh had his Multiplex range out (MiniMag, EasyStar and TwinStar), all of which flew beautifully.  I got to try some sport flying (inverts, rolls and loops) on the TwinStar, which was first for me on a plane with twin props.

The Hacker ZoomZoom4 went out of sight from about 70ft height while my brother was flying it (due to high winds), but was recovered with zero damage ! A very sturdy plane, and the fact that the whole area is covered with shrubs of at least 1ft height helped  Wink  Flew it again immediately.

Finally Sebastian had two 450s, a Paragon 40 size nitro plane, a Hirobo Sceadu 30 size heli and a raptor 50 on the field.  We both flew everything except the Hirobo and Paragon (due to rain forcing us to take breaks). It was good to fly a glow powered model after a break.

20Mins on Real Flight everyday, hoping that the 4ft tall grass will be cut at the municipal stadium where we fly. Since its a reclaimed paddy field, dont like to see lives claimed at the spot Cheesy you could get lost in there LOL.
due to the conditions - I guess its RC training as activity for this week..

Yesterday was a hi-tech day at Kovalam with the word "Video" or photography involved in just about any thing that took off except for a few sorties by Acro master and Easy Cub.

Rajesh was there with his  Easy star hybrid  and all sorts of electronics around it including Eagle tree telemetry etc.

We maidened the FPV  on the twin star and flying FPV was truly amazing .

Details report on the FPV thread .

Some observations.

Most people had at least one 50cc gasser. One guy had DL56, else were all DAs.

Most had small electrics/foamies also.  It was funny that many of them were also using the TowerPro combos from www.hobbycity.com for their electric setup !

Not many heli fliers in this field.

Most of the people were flying very well !  Rolling harriers, hovering just above the ground etc. Saw one knife-edge with wing tip scraping the runway Shocked Grin

And finally, all except one person were using 2.4Ghz radios. Tongue

Today for the first time i felt the thrust. Increased the bore of prop HD 8060 to 5 mm and fitted on my BL-2212/10 1400kv motor. completd the circuit and started the motor on 50% throttle. Initially the direction of motor was pusher type so swapped the motor connecton and the direction of rotation changed. Now desperately waiting for my slow stick from Mr Sai.

this beast uses

3* edf70 systems from hobbycity each gives about 900gms of thrust
3* 40 amp esc
3* 2650 25c 3s lipo
15-17 servos (for maneuvering and other salient features)
and 2* 6chradio one for flight and one for display mechanisms

oh and another lipo to power up the 2 rx containing the features

this is really a beast

shall test it in thane probably
