If you flew R/C indoors in the Tulsa area, this is the place for you. We have a new indoor flying site, and along with the two sites that we already use from time to time I thought we should have a dedicated place to post.
(Don if you think this should go in the indoor section, please move. I just wasn't sure.)
Today, I got to fly in a new location. The CrossTown Church of Christ at Admiral & Harvard. I've been talking to my friend Tom Dalman, (the youth minister), for a few months about getting us in there to fly a few times each month. Today, it all came together.:D
Today I went to the church early, and flew for a while, to show Tom what it is that we do. I flew for an hour or so, then I took Tom out to lunch, to thank him for his efforts.
The Deal: Tom is giving me a key to the church:silly: We can use it whenever we want, as long as it's not being used. I just need to call the office ahead of time to reserve the date. Oh, did I mention, that this is a basketball court. I think it's full size, but not sure. It's nice.
I thought we would try to use it twice a month, once on a Thursday 6-9pm., and once on a Saturday 4-8pm. This should give everyone, a chance to make it.
Watch this thread for fly dates for all venues, I will also notify Matt, at Model Works.
The first fly date, is set. Thursday February 11th. 6-9pm. See You there.

Today I flew at Crosstown. I flew the new micro 4-Site, the micro Mustang, and my new Slow28.
4-Site, I love this plane! Flew great, you could fly this plane in a broom closet.
Mustang, Indoors, this plane seems a whole lot faster. There is room, but the walls close in quick. I think you would need to be flying alone to fly this one, cause you won't have time to watch for air traffic.
Slowfly 28, perfect indoors hovers all day with little effort. I'm still getting used to the flimsyness of the EPP. I did hit a table with it, that I was too lazy to move before flying, and broke off the nose. I'ts fixed now, so I'm good to go.
Next Thursday I'll try the Tensor, the Bug, and The micro F-22.
You all have fun at the Rosebowl Sun. I'm not going to make it. I have a Super Bowl party to get ready for.

Hey I second third and fourth all those statements if I can. Sounds good.
I've been wondering where everyone was tonite, been working on some masks to paint Skips new Firefly with. I don't know how good it's a gonna look but I hope it doesn't make him throw up when I get finished. Had to hand draw the flames that I'm gonna use and I am not the worlds greatest at freehanding anything as you know if you've seen me fly.

Glad you guys have a choice of places to fly. If you are really interested in micro flight, you need to subscribe to this online magazine, RC Micro World Online Magazine (http://www.cloud9rc.com/).

They have really nice plans every month or so, lots by Bob Aberle, who designs great indoor models. You can look at a free issue of the magazine if you wish.

Also the best place in the world for small airplane parts in just up the road in Joplin, BSD Micro RC (http://www.bsdmicrorc.com/). Bob Selman owns the shop and is a great guy who will help you with anything. He stands behind what he sells.

Thanks for the link Jim, I have heard you talk about Micro World before. I will check it out.

Bob was at the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. He does have a lot of really neat looking planes. I know if he would have brought some kits with him to sell at least 3 of us would have bought some that day.

I like the looks of the new UM Cub and at $90 BNF it seems like a really good deal.

If you any of you do feel like you need to bring items to make repairs, it's OK. You just need to bring a piece of cardboard or something to glue on.

Rose Bowl is on 11th street, between memorial and sheridan, on the north side of the street. Not sure on the cost, I think it's $5 or $10. Not sure on the time. I would assume 1-4. There was a post on the Unclub thread that listed times, and prices, but not sure where, probably 3 or 4 pages back.

Well, me too. Though I've been flying for about 2 hours already. You Guys should have come out to the Unclub, Paul was there when I showed up. No wind only a slight S.E. breeze not even enough to really talk about. Flying was nice. Yeah, I know it was a little chillie. But hey, 38 deg is nice compared to the last three or four weeks and whats ahead from what they are saying.
I don't think it will fly indoors but I gotta build one of these.

It would have been nice if you could have made it Greg, it was a lot of fun. I think I heard Dave say at 1 point that there was 35+ pilots. Brandon Chitty was there, dang that guy is good :eek::D. I don't think I will ever be able to reach that skill level, it's fun just to watch him fly.

I want a slow flyer like the Vapor but I think I would rather have something original. There is a lot of guyz flying Vapor's. After seeing the J3 fly I don't think it is what I am looking for either. Looked like it flies nice but kind of fast, not much of a floater. I'll find something.

The CX2 did ok but I think it can be better. It kind of has a wagging tail effect, rotates a lot slower to the left than it does the right, and it has a vibration. I need to do some fine tuning on it.

I'm glad they are making these planes to take the micro gear. Scott crashed his little 4-Site at the Rose Bowl. He ordered the dynex 2.4 from dynamic foamy. He commissioned me to build it for him.

James have you ever flown the Vapor? BNF $99, almost indistructable. I'm thinking of getting one. Your Liddlerod looks cool, but I can't imagine that it would be any more floaty, or relaxing than the vapor. They look like they would fly about the same. If you already have the radio gear, I'd give the Liddlerod a chance, but if not, I would go with Vapor.
Sorry, I had an extra 2 cents, thought you might want it.:D

Before you buy the Vapor, check out the Ember. I have both and I enjoy flying the Ember much more. I fly it outdoors if the wind is almost calm in the evenings.

I fly the Ember in big circles six inches off the floor and it is entirely stable. It is my favorite indoor flyer, and I have several.

Jim, you are right. The Ember is better. I got to fly both at the indoor fly Thursday night. Ed pointed out that the Vapors covering is damaged a lot, and it can be a pain to repair. He said the Ember's wing can be replaced for $8, and only takes 30sec. I like the Ember better because it still floats good, and it has about three times the speed if you want it.

I don't think you will see that kind of Ember anytime soon if at all. You could add ailerons but you would also add weight and it would take away some of the nice qualities of the Ember.

Anyone that doesn't have one (or if you have one need an extra) need a micro 4-site? Never flown? I keep looking at this thing thinking there is no way it is going to survive me flying it. I don't know that I am much into these little micro planes. Keep thinking I can get one of these

http://www.3dhobbyshop.com/detail.aspx?ID=2407

for what I have in the 4-site. If you are interested give me a pm. Brand new PNP version with 2 batts and the 4 port charger. I'll sell it cheaper than you can buy it new.

Missed the warehouse this weekend. Hope you guys had a good time.
I'm confussed. You mention the micro 4-site, then you show a link to a 40" edge 540. My best guess is your wanting to sell the micro, to buy the edge. I've seen you fly, you will have no problem flying the micro 4-Site. I say you need both.:D We have lots of indoor flying fields now, you need a good micro 3d plane. You also need a big electric 3d plane, if for nothing else but to let your buddy Brett fly it now and then.:D I personally would go with the Precision Aerobatics Extra MX, its a 58" span that only weighs 3.5 Pounds AUW(Thats with a 2250 6S pack). I got to fly this plane in Georgia, it's a feather. It's reinforced with carbon everywhere, very stiff, and strong. I think Kenny bought one. take a look at it next time he's at the field.

Yeah, I really like the PA Extra, that is a beautiful plane. The reason I was thinking the edge was I could use the same motor/esc/servos and lipos as my AJ slick. I could also use the 3 cells I have for my 450 helis. That way if I destroy one, I have back up gear for the other. With the extra I would have to buy new lipo's, big ones.

I may end up keeping the 4-site, I guess I really should fly it before I sell it, I just keep thinking if I total it the first time I will be mad that I could have had a big plane. I do have some 2mm depron so I guess I could always recycle the gear.

The neat thing about the PA Extra, is that they knew that people had a lot of 3 cell 2100-2250 size lipo's. They designed the Extra MX for those cells. You have to use two 3 cell packs, thats the only way they will fit into the plane. Then you use a two way plug (that comes with the plane) to link the two batteries in together, so that you end up with a 6s pack, made up from two 3s packs. It's a well thought out design.

Indoor fly at the church gym today 2p-7p. Spread the word. Church of Christ at Admiral & Harvard. Parking is behind building. Enter thru the main doors with the covered awning.
Tell your friends. There is no cost to fly, but I will have an envelope to put donations in to help cover the cost of the lights, heat/AC, etc... If you can put a few dollars in great, if not you can put some in next time. This will show a sign of appriciation on our part.
See you sometime after 2p.

pretty kewl Jack.

Here is the link (http://www.hobby-estore.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=firebird&Search.x=0&Search.y=0) to that new heli (The small black one) that I have. If you use the code "Firebird" in the coupon code box you can get one (with an extra set of blades that I am not sure you will ever need but good to have) shipped for $43.99. I got mine in 3 days using USPS.

I just finished making mine quite a bit faster. I took the weights out of the stabilizer bar and put them in the nose. Right now I just have them taped to the nose but if it keeps flying this well I will glue them inside the body so you can't see them. :)

The larger one is a Lama V4 (http://www.xheli.com/eslav4ve4or2.html). I would suggest adding a set of These upper (http://www.boomtownhobbies.com/Xtreme_Hard_Blade_Upper_p/esl005.htm) and these lower (http://www.boomtownhobbies.com/Xtreme_Hard_Blade_Lower_p/esl006.htm) blades. They will last a lot longer and make more lift so longer flight times.

They are both great little helis to fly around the house and stuff.

Here is the vid of the Mini Surfer Dude flying. My camera did not like those lights in the background. I figured out how to turn off auto focus when I got home so that might help next time. I am also looking at picking up a better HD camera (maybe one of those Vado HD that I hear are good) if I can find one for the right price. This one is getting pretty old. If I pick up a new one that can replace the one I have, I might sell this one off cheap.

Hay Greg, how about the combat footage that was shot at the Rose Bowl?

05-10-2010, 06:03 AM
sorry about that. I tatally forgot about that. I had issues with one of the videos that I uploaded and YouTube muted 100% of my audio so I had to delete it and change the audio track. I forgot to reupload it or link to the one that did work. Here is one of them and I should have the other one uploaded soon.

OK here is the other one. I think it will work now. I just hope YouTube does not mute my audio again.

I remember back when I got this camera and how well it worked. Not sure if it was 100% the fault of the lights or not. all I know is I want a new one. :)

Sorry I can't make it tonight. But I did pick up a new camera. It's a Kodak Zi6 and I put a 16Gig card it it so it should do pretty well. Picked it up for $65 and free shipping from eBay. The one I got came with a tripod HD cables and SD cables so I can plug it right into a TV set. I did a few short videos and it looked nice. I also did not notice it getting blurry when I pointed it at the light in the kitchen and my old one was so I hope it works better for us. :)

I did end up making it out there for a bit yesterday so I made a "Crash log" from some of the video I did catch. It has been "processing" at youtube for almost an hour now and it is only about a minute and ha half long. :( It is still processing now but here is the link. I hope it gets done soon.

The song was just the right length and fits a crash log so well. Please enjoy.

I am not sure why or what happened but it did not have any combat on it. I think, but have not tested this yet, that the clip is lost if the batteries die while recording. :( I picked up some rechargable batteries for it so I have 3 sets now and a good charger for them. So I hope to be able to charge one set while using the other two and not run out.

yep! I'm missing it too. unfortunatly we lost the little church gym:sad: We still have Ed's place, but we need a new one too! What we really need is a school gym/basketball court. if you think about it, they sit empty at night most of the time, even during basketball season. Does anyong have any school conections? Teachers or other school staff as friends? Or know anyone who works for the Tulsa Parks and Rec. Dept. They have at least 6 full size courts, they probably get used a lot, but we might be able to reserve a date once a month.

Speaking of indoor flying...of course I have an EPP 3D plane going, right now I am flying a Slo-Yak. I did some trading with Skip and have an UM Mustang now. Flew it yesterday at a school down the road. Seems kind of fast for indoors but it's a lot of fun to fly. I am going to take the guts out of the LiddleRod, which is trash now, and put them in an AeroBat. Looks neat.

Have you seen any video of the AeroBat flying? It looks really cool, but it has very small control surfaces. The F&F flys like a bat. Maybe you could get rid of the rudders, make the elevator bigger, and give it wing warping ailerons.:D Hey, maybe I'll try and make an F&F size AeroBat. I'll call it a Com-bat.

Scott told us today at the Unclub, that we will be flying for free in the Owasso YMCA, next Saturday night. I'm not sure what time. Maybe Scott will post and give us the details, (hint, hint) According to Scott, We can fly any time we want if we pay a total of $40. This is a great price, cause we can easily get 8 guys to fly once or twice a month. That's only $5 each.
Give us the details again Scott. and Thanks for finding another indoor place to fly!

James, I decided to try and make a micro bug before the pinguin. Here are some pics. 11"ws, AUW is 29gm. I tried to fly it in the garage, it hoverd ok, and harriered fine, but when I transitioned into forward flight, it went all squirley. Does anyone know where the cg should be on the lightflight bug? I figured a third back on the wing is a good place to start.
Oh, and I crashed it and broke the prop shaft. Hope to have it fixed by Sat.
