The Heads Up setup for a Super Cub makes the thing an absolute blast to fly!

I do not care how much you paid for it; it is still a toy.

For my E-Flite RV-9 I have these components in it from HeadsUp
Power Up 480 Plus motor
Sky Power 45Amp ESC
APC 11 x 5.5E Prop





My E-Flite Cessna Aerobat 150 has...
HURC 2712-17
HURC 10 Amp Brushless Motor ESC
GWS 7035 Prop




And I have a Sky Power 45Amp ESC in my Electrify SR-22 Turbo



Headsup will ALWAYS be my first choice when it comes to electronics because they have awesome customer service, quality parts, and the shipping rates and delivery time is above and beyond!
(okay, do I get any discounts for this plug??!!??)

Default 2nd Generation SKYFOX-103

Hey guys/gals;
I decided to build a full fuselage and true airfoil wing based from my profile version of the SKYFOX-103 that I was flying this past season. The plane is built entirely from 1/2" blue foam like the profile.

I fabb-ed up a foam wire cutting bow and using a car battery charger and I was able to cut my own foam cores for the wing. It took me a few tries to get a good set of wings, but i still need to tweak my set-up a bit yet for more consistency.

I simply made a center rail/floor board and filled in the top and bottom of the fuselage. This was a simple and self aligning method to build the fuselage.

The wing is cut cores and spar-less using a row of packing tape top and bottom w/ functional wing struts. No flexing seems quite strong.

I finished the plane with a few coats of water based poly varnish (MINI WAX) and then painted it a Military Desert Ca-mo scheme using Krylon Fusion spray paint then followed with another coat of the MINI WAX after I printed and installed the decals.

The plane is powered with a 450 e-flite motor, Power-Up 30 amp esc, and uses a 3s 1200 - 2200 mah battery. all up weight is 28 ounces w/ a 3s 1500 mah battery. ....(note) I planned to install my Power-Up 450 until i dropped it then proceeded to step on it all in one motion, bending both the shaft and the X-mount The servos are the e-max 8gram

SKYFOX-103 (Desert-Camo)
Wingspan 45"
Wing Area 360 sq/in
AUW 28 oz
Construction / 1/2" Blue Foam
Electronics/Hardware are Heads-UP RC

I plan to now double the size of this design and use one of my 25cc weed-eater engines "or may go electric" to power it. It will have a 90" wingspan and weigh around 8-10lbs.

I hope to maiden it soon as the weather breaks, get some nicer pix of it outside along w/ a flight video and looking towards flying again the Spring/Summer.

The Power Up 250 is a good motor for a setup where 250 class power is required, but space is minimum. I designed the nacelles on the American Gyro Crusader to fit the motors, while being just slightly wider than scale. The motor X-mount literally scrapes on it's way into the nacelle.

The same motor is also used in my recent Miles Aerovan scratchbuild.

Just got another Firepower 370 Sport for a Miles M38 scratchbuild using Aeromodeller plans, shipped here in only 2 days. I used this motor in a similar sized 36" Heston Phoenix scratch built from Aeromodeller plans. More than ample power with 8043 GWS prop with 3s-910 TP-PL, requiring only part throttle for good flight. The spinner was a hair loose which has been corrected, which made it a bit noisier than it would normally be.

This one is ready for it's re-maiden. DJAerotech Chrysalis 2M-E Sailplane. (2nd flight had some push-rod/operator issues and the plane decided it was safer in a tree!)

Anyway... Components from HeadsUpRc:

Motor: Firepower 480
ESC: On old PowerUp 32 Amp that is no longer sold by HeadsUp
Servos: TowerPro SG92R

As usual, the products from HeadsUp arrived very quickly and are just as advertised!

Steve

bubsteve

Power Up 2.4ghz DSM2 Compatible 6 Channel Receiver


Click To Enlarge

  • Item #: G-656





The Power Up R6100 2.4 ghz 6 channel end pin receiver is compatible with all DSM2 aircraft radios. It's small size and light weight makes it ideal for small air frames. It is designed for parkflyer use only. Range is 1500 feet or more with proper installation.

Important things to remember when installing and using any 2.4ghz receiver:
-- Keep away from other electrical components, such as the Motor, ESC and servos.
-- Turn on your transmitter before connecting power to the receiver (except when binding).
-- Provide reliable power to the receiver.
-- Carefully check all connections.
-- Perform a range check, as described in your transmitter manual.

BINDING INSTRUCTIONS (please also check the instructions included with your transmitter):
1. Insert Bind plug into the BATT port.
2. Apply power to the receiver, either through an ESC connected to the throttle port, or a separate UBEC or receiver battery connected to any open port. A light will blink, indicating that the receiver is in bind mode.
3. Press and hold the bind button of your transmitter while turning on the transmitter. Hold the bind button for up to 10 seconds, until the light in the receiver remains solid on.
4. Remove the bind plug. The receiver is now ready to use, and should not need re-binding when used for subsequent flights.


Specifications:
Dimensions: 1.18" x 0.87" x 0.37" (30 x 23 x 8.5 mm)
Dual antennae: 1.00" (25.4 mm) each
Weight: 0.16 oz. (4.6 grams)
6 Channels: Auxilliary, Gear, Rudder, Elevator, Aileron, Throttle, plus battery port.
Range: 1500 feet or more with proper installation.
Compatible with DSM2 aircraft radio and module systems.

That receiver should work with any DSM2 transmitter, including your DX5. I've used a couple of those with a DSM2 DX6i tx and had no problems. However, they will not bind to my newer DSMX DX6i.

Older Spektrum DSM2 receivers are forward compatible with DSMX, but these are not, so you should be aware of that.

Sorry for the very late response. I failed to notice the question under the photo when you first posted it.

To answer your question; yes, I kept it 3ch. It does not really need 4ch as it turns on a dime as is. However, I may pick up a second one and go 4ch with it just for increased silly factor.

I would like to see, and have written HZ about it, HZ offer a plug and play wing with ailerons. They should be able to do it cheaply enough and it would allow for the same bird to used once a novice is comfortable flying as a 3ch bird.

I do not care how much you paid for it; it is still a toy.

I've seen a guy locally flying one with an Armin wing and ailerons. Looks like a super-simple project.

Default Stevens Aeromodel Groove G-480

Here's my Groove with all the electronics from HeadsUp

Motor: E-Max GT2215/09 250 Watt
ESC: Sky Power 30A ESC with Switchmode BEC
Servos: Towerpro SG92R

The AUW is in the 23-24 oz range depending on the battery used. (1500-1800 mAh 3S)

With a TowerPro 10x5 (APC-E Clone) I'm peaking at 275 watts. Just a little over spec. I can hover at just over 1/2 throttle and climb straight up anytime! Perfect!

Thanks HeadsUp! More great parts at a great price!

Steve

Just picked this up, but it has an old brushed system so I placed an order with Heads up today to put a BL system in it.
