I'll confess I haven't trawled through the entire thread...but it looks like you've got a Canberra person anyways, so I'll keep in the loop of when you're coming through, and come out for a watch!!

You'd need to get a photo of it with Telstra Tower, or Parliament House in the background...that should be easy enough!!

Cheers,
Matt

I'm enjoying my Hawk and my Katana EP.

Got a Twinstar and have ordered a wireless camera, so am keen to get that going.

Turns out August is Canberra's windiest month (apparently) so it hasn't been ideal conditions here.

Hey SoP

It's going really well, it's a great motor for the price. It is definately my favourite at the moment. I just wish we didn't have so much wind, so I could get in some more flying time in.

One question though, what battery are you using, 3s or 4s? I'm running a 3s and been thinking of trying a 4s for that little bit extra power.

Cheers
Damain

I write to a lot of R/C modelers there and always start with G'day and Later Mate.
To all those from Down Under , we all have gravity and up here it sucks or could be a down draft..north of the equator

G'day Damian,

I'm not particularly fussed...would love to be involved, would equally enjoy just watching it come through Canberra!!

When is it likely to come through?

I think SoP will be able to give a better answer to that question, but I think overall the plane is traveling slower than first thought.

Cheers

Yep. Great store, nice people, good prices. It's like walking into a shed that all RC'ers would love to have.

Bit quiet around here isn't it

What's everyone been up to?

I've been killing braincells with electronics lately

@Paul: I've actually been watching your YouKnowWatt thread over on RCG. Do you know how long before you'll have one to sell?

Other than that, my flying is now restricted to early morning flying due the the spring winds here in Canberra. And since I have trouble getting out of bed that early on the weekends, there's not much flying atm.

Cheers
Damian

Damian,

Could be a little while - I'm running into some teething troubles with it - just not sure of the source/nature of the problem yet. Basically, while i'm getting great voltage readings, my current readings are still bouncing around like a ferret on espresso.

Of course, the YouKnowWatt, like the ESC, are open developments, so other people can step in and make their own too

Today I'm busy with making up some more ESCs for orders... and also working on the new Normaliser design (I hate non-linear math ).

I know what you mean about getting out of bed ... I generally am doing an 8am -> midnight sort of routine at the moment, however a 6am -> 10pm would be better for me overall.

Paul.

I guess everyone is now talking at RCG in the Aussie forums there. Still, would be nice to see some more aussie content here.

Oh, buy the way Paul. Don from Dons RC plugged your Slipso400 in a Podcast Called "All Things That Fly" (www.allthingsthatfly.com)

Check out the Dons RC Episode
