Hi Just completed this Hotpoint EP now has six flights on it so far so good.
I use the same brand of motors you are talking of in all of my planes Chellie and the all work fine just be careful not to be t rough with the motor wires with regards to bending the as they can be a bit fragile.
Hi Kx And Welcome to Wattflyers , Those are some very nice planes, keep up the great work, Chellie
Finally, the jet is out of the paint shop. I slapped it together and took a few shots. Since the wife loves painting, I let her have a go at it. I did do the cockpit myself. Edwards paint scheme and not scale, but it should be fun.
Plenty of power on hand launch at half to 2/3s throttle. Very little trim just a bit of elevator as she wanted to climb a bit. Excellent elevator control, turns great, rolls were a bit slow but scale like. Flew at half throttle easy but it was a low wind day. I took it up to 3/4 throttle and probably hitting 70mph or better. Flew for 10 minutes and brought her down smooth right on the belly not even a scatch on it. I am very happy to see it finally fly
Maybe I will get some pics and video Sunday if the weather holds.
Can't afford a "Duce's Wild" But this'll do I guess,I'm prob'ly gonna maid'in her this week-end, I gotta swap some motors around to match-up a pair,( got um) Two 2409-18t's an a pair of 25 ESC's two 1600 ,20-c three cells (parallel)and a synthesized Corona receiver, , bub,steve
Just purchased this little fella, came in the post today. Its the only mini plane I could find running a 3s. Its tiny. Wing span of only 610mm. Just wanted a plane to easily chuck in the back of the car. We dont all drive those huge yank tanks!
I picked up an Eflite Fokker DVII over the weekend and should receive a F9F blue angels in the mail tomorrow. Who knows what else ill have by the weekend. Big scale Mosquito at HK is very tempting. Lol
This is a fact, you have never been in an empty room.
We have a grass runway but want a paved one. You guys have a paved runway but all three of you fly off the grass? How come?
We mostly use the runway. Those two sticks that came in while I was holding were practicing for a fun fly event we are having this weekend. The combat reload/bomb drop portion of the event, the guy on the field was reloading the "bombs" (lugnuts) so they were landing as close to the line as possible to make the fastest turn.
I land the Shoestring in the grass because it comes in so fast! The grass helps slow it down. If you'll notice in that vid I touched down at about the 100' mark of our 400' runway and even in the grass it rolled out to the end of the runway.
Most of the time you'll see me on the paved runway.
My newest is an Eflight Carbon Z Yak. Got it around Christmas, and still only 2 flights on it. Now if this is weather related, flying site related, or courage related I don't know. I guess I still fly my trusty T-28 more just because it's so darn convenient. Gotta love parkzone. Any other yak pilots out there?
