Hi, TD! First of all, WELCOME to WattFlyer!!

It's always great to see new faces. Especially when they're just up the road. :)
There are several TX members on WattFlyer, and I have read about several events in the DFW area in the past.

Best of luck and hopefully more folks will chime in.

I HATE the wind. I did manage to fly my TRex in the backyard today, but that's about it. Wednesday is looking good, though ;)

Uh oh, I'd better not say anything embarrassing until I find out who you really are... I fly at the 114th too :eek:

3DHobbyShop is putting on a fun fly in a couple of months, and we have a float fly coming up.

AFAIK there's no club fun fly events scheduled, but we do have them now and then. You're welcome any time!

Here's our website: http://www.114thrc.org/index.html

I am building a Balsa USA SE5-A 1/4 scale kit and am making it electric. Have chosen the AXI 5345/18 motor. Does this seem ok, this combination? Any comments, suggestions are very welcome.

rcers
11-24-2009, 04:05 PM
What is the AUW going to be (estimated)?

I am suspecting that motor will be overkill....

edit...

Just pulled up the web site they say 18-20 lbs. If you keep it light (remember electric) you should be able to hit 18lbs.

At that weight - I would way 100-125w/lb - scale would be more like (40w/lb :) ) I would head more in a 10s and this motor:
http://www.horizonhobby.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=EFLM4160A

If you are 18-20 lbs (and plan on that battery being FAR forward so you don't have to add nose weight) I think that would be much better.

Although you could argue the weight may be needed anyway.

Wow...not bad at all. I usually drive down to Fredericksburg to fly with Capt Easy and Groundrushesup. That's only a two hour drive for me. We're gonna have to link up sometime and do some flying!

sounds good. i'm ~6 months into rc planes at this point. i'd like to go to some of the local anual events this spring to see what the big boys are doing (i'm only flying parkflyers at this point).

january i'll be hitting my mountain models cub kit build, and i think santa is bringing me an e-flite p-40 300. i really like being able to hit the sky at a park or any available open spot.

Angler-Hi
12-17-2009, 09:30 PM
LOL...I was just looking at the E-Flite P-40 on Horizon's site. Not bad for $99.99! Something that doesn't cost much at all to get into the air, and extra batteries would cost next to nothing! I think I might pick one up, lol. Can definitely fly her almost anywhere.

There's several of us who fly down here in Palacios. There's clubs 30 miles or so either side of us but from what I've heard they're mostly Glow & Gas powered believing that electrics are only for flying indoors :rolleyes: :Q :Q :Q
One of these days...:ws:

Our main flying field is a tree free 100 acre site that only has a couple of light poles around the smallish parking lot that we use to take-off from.

BTW, if'n ya gots a floatplane, a boat or two...or both,
Come on down,
Tres Palacios Bay/Matagorda Bay is only a 1/4 mile away ;-) :cool:

Same here, lol. I was actually out at the lake this morning, but the wind was brutal. Caught one bass in about 5-6 ft of water at about 10 yards off the bank...that was about it though, lol.

good thing you had the boat...:Q

the p-40 300 from e-flight has been flying great. it will fit in any car. 8 minutes is about the longest i've gotten out of her per charge...using stock equipment. this is running hard 3/4 - full throttle stuff. launching/landing is easy too.

luckely, it comes with a prop/nose-cone spare for those idots that don't check aileron servo direction prior to maiden :blah: that results in a nose dive back to earth :sad: ...if that happened to me :roll: i'd be pleased to find the foam fuselage can take a licken and keep on ticken :ws:

Closer than I was above as I entered the wrong club for ours.

Good flying,
