Hey Bob, I am a VERY amateur woodworker, but these ply motor mounts almost make themselves (I have help from wood elves!). Those nylon spacers come in a variety of lengths, so they really come in handy for weight and positioning of the motor. I find you can change weight around to compensate for center of gravity by swapping out lighter aluminum bolts and nylon nuts if you are too nose heavy. I haven't mastered "weight control" yet!

just the right size spacers.

Default Heads up Jeffs new plane

Jeff brought this little plane to the field today. It flew great. He is now using it for a trainer. I don't remember what the name of it is but its not much bigger than a Butterfly.

I thought the everyone here would like to see this.

Have a nice day
Don

My airplanes are in the ground more often than my shovel!!!

Just finished my HURC fully equipped E-Flite Su-26M. Got the 480+ outrunner with the 40A Sw-BEC and use his servos and extensions also.

I have been very impressed with Jeff's service and his products so much so that I give his cards out to everyone who asks about my planes.

I recently built a 36" EPP Assassin combat wing from Crash Test Hobbies using a 2409-12T (have this motor in my 2 Wing Dragons/ Begin Air planes), APC 7x5E prop and TowerPro MG90 servos. Flies like stink. Once again, HURC comes through with great products, prices and shipping.

Newest build with HeadsUpRC components:

The Blazy Bee. An EPP/FFF version of the Clancy Lazy Bee

Specs:
- Power Up Sport 250 Motor
- Power Up 10A ESC
- 6x3 GWS prop
- SG50 5g servos
- 350mAh 2S lipo from Common Sense RC
- Spektrum AR6110 receiver
- 2.5" Dubro wheels
- Fuse made from 3mm EPP
- 30" polyhedral wing from FFF
- AUW 5.3oz (my lightest build to date)

The maiden wasn't too promising. Far to much up thrust... it ballooned like crazy under power. I've toned it down some but still it needs more down thrust or less wing incidence. The short coupled fuse makes for very tight turns... within 5ft if you crank the throws up.

The Power Up Sport 250 has no problem hauling this plane around. I have no thrust measurements, but it's got to be nearly 5oz as I can almost prop hang her! I also tried a CC Thunderbird 6 ESC with this motor... works just fine.

She'll be a neat little gym flyer. I can't wait for warmer weather to try her outdoors!

Default Typhoon 2 W/ Heads Up RC Powerplant

Here is my completed Typhoon 2 Mod using a 2836-09 motor and a thin APC 12x6 prop. I am using the stock 30 Amp ESC and the stock 1800 mah lipo battery. I did a quick in the house check to make sure everything was functioning as it should and man o man this powerplant about ripped the plane out of my hands when I gave her a quick jolt of about 3/4 throttle. I think I have successfully created a monster!!!

Default Scratch built 6mm depron Blazy Bee

Here is a pic. of my Blazy Bee, made from 6mm Depron. Flying weight came to 11 oz. with 25 inch wing. Motor, ESC and battery from Heads UP RC.

Motor: EMAX CF2805
ESC: Mac 8 18a
Battery: PowerUp 1000mah

Receiver: Spectrum 6110E
Servos: Cheap 5g ones

Flies good outdoors at 1/3 to 1/2 throttle, but is a hand full in a small gym
since it is not a floater. After first few flights, added 14g weight to the
nose and now flies much better.
