Hi all,

Below is a picture of three Nemsis pylon models.

All are powered with Hacker F5D motors from 5 turn on 7 x GP3700 to 7Turn on 12 x GP2000. The latter being darn quick but the GP2000 cells are a little sensitive and seem prone to troubles currently.

That said things are getting better now I am learning to look after them.

F5D in the UK is starting to gain interest as it appears to be elsewhere in the world. I suspect in the next world champs there will be quite a large entry compared to previous years.

Any other new or would be F5D pilots out there?

Rob.

Rob,

Welcome to Wattflyer! Nice pylon models you have there.

The only F5Dish plane I have is a Turn Left but it is more of a sport F5D than the real thing.

What is the wingspan on the Nemsis?

http://home.planet.nl/%7Ezandv055/3ViewsColor_small.jpg (http://home.planet.nl/%7Ezandv055/3ViewsColor.jpg) Here is the spec. With a nice Hacker or a Neu motor up the front spinning a 4.7 x 4.7 at 40,000 rpm they keep my mind focused when flying them.

The record time so far is 65 secs round a 10 lap FAI coarse (not me unfortunatly), that is less than a second a lap slower than the record for a a full house F3D model. It wont be long before the Electric model is faster!

Hello all,

Here is my Graupner Mini Viper.
Powered by speed 400 6V, cam speed prop 4,7x4,7, 3s lipo kokam 1500. Performance is good for such a ceap motor. I get about 17k rpm out of a new speed 400.
Will probably soon try a Neu 1105/2,5Y on cam speed 4,7x4,7 and 3s of the new epower Poly 1200XP. Should get more interesting :D

Who sells the Nemsis? I am going to look into that one. That would be a step up from my Turn Left.

My Turn Left has been a fun pylon plane for me because its reasonably fast and easy to see. :)
I am running a Mega 16/25/2, 3s2p Thunderpower 4200 pack, CC45 and a 5.2x5.2 prop.

The turn left appears to be a great model and if there was more interest in Electric pylon in the UK i would happily run a limited class using models like the TL. Interest is growing so hopfully this will be somthing we can do in the future. Shame you dont live in the UK Jason.

I have listed all the available new spec F5D models on my web site www.f5d.co.uk (http://www.f5d.co.uk) and we are trying to review them all over the comming months. The Nemesis is still my preferred model currently and i have been flying the red one all year and we now have may hours together under out belt.

I would not hesitat to recomend the Nemesis to anyone however the Jibe and the Cyclone are also good models and are of a better build quality, but harder to get hold of currently.

I consider this a "High Performance" airplane. It is the Sig Wonder I built to be electric. AXI 28/14/10, Kokam 2000mAh 15C, Phoenix-45, on an APC 8x6 E-prop. I tached it just under 14,000 rpm, and it is much lighter than my buddies with a .25 2-stroke. He think mine is a little faster than his. Come to think of it, it is the fastest thing at our field!:D

08-22-2005, 01:29 PM
Hi Jason,
sorry for the late response:o ,but onto the subject matter. The Monny is a great aircraft,quick and has reasonable energy retension in the turns. However it only has a two servo wing which limits the ability to reconfigure the wing for the thermal task in F5B, so I also have purchased a Zoom Race which I hope will be a better all rounder. By the way what servos have you used in your Zoom, I'm tossing up between Volz wing max and Hitec HS5125MG for the wing:confused: .

Will post pics of my hotrods when my computer or dumb fingers learns how to reduce the file size, as photos from my camera even on low res come in at 137mb which is too big for this site.

Cheers HR

Jason T
08-22-2005, 05:11 PM
HR,

I am using HS125's in my wing. The HS 5125's are the same size. These fit pretty well in the flap locations but protude slightly in the aileron locations. Here two pics of my servo's squeezed in. I am sure the Volz will fit better but they are more expensive.

Hey now,
Those are some hot models fur sure, I guess my little CSD Twister (Astro 020, Cam 5.2-5.2, T.P. 2100 3s pack) just doesn't quite cut it, although the radar gun finaly "saw" it at 135 mph...
Gotta start saving my pennies for something really hot and a bit larger so I can see the thing:D
Oh well, I'm having fun...

Hey now,
I saw that Zoom race, looks nifty but a *lot* of bux! gonna take me years to save up for something that large, gotta find a half step...
My Twister is dying, it's seven years old now and getting kinda beat up. I'm not sure how many high G turns it's got left before the wing folds:(
I know it's gonna be spectacular when it does let go:eek: I just need to find something that size or a bit bigger to replace her.
I sometimes think about chopping one of my 60" slope racers into a sort of hot liner but just can't quite get myself to hack the nose off, and those fuses are kinda narrow...

Hey now,
In the "ask and you shall recieve catagory, over the weekend a friend offered to sell me his Avionik D-99 with Jr. digital servos for the cost of the servos. It's in fine shape and I think it'll make a nice replacement for the Twister. Yes I know my little Astro 020 won't properly power the thing, but it'll work for a start and from there I'll prolly dump a Mega two turn into it.
I'm a happy camper:D

In April we moved back to the Northwest. Enumclaw, Washington to be exact. Since then I've been to all but one of the regional IMAC contests with my son-in-law who has just finished his first year in competition. He's in basic so far, and now getting ready to move up. Of course his planes are gas, and huge.
Sitting on the sidelines and watching has finally gotten to me, so I have built 2 planes that may get me into competition next year after a lot of practice.

Sportsman Aviation Corby Starlet - 27% size Scale Model
Motor - AXI 4120/12
Prop - APC 15x10 E
Battery - Duralite 4S2P 5000 mAh
Receiver - FMA FS-8 Bulletproof
Servos - 4 Hitec HS-645MG High Torque Servos
Transmitter - Hitec Optic 6
ESC - Castle Creations 60Amp, BEC defeated and a 2S1P 1500-mAh pack using a FMA VR-1 Voltage regulator for Receiver power
Weight 114 oz
Static Thrust - 105 oz
Static Current Draw - 52 Amps
Watts - (Astro Whattmeter) 385
Wing Span: 60.75 inches
Wing Area: 730 sq. in.
Wing Loading: 22.49 oz/sq. ft.
Cubic Wing Loading: 9.99 oz./cu.ft.

The plane flies great, and is gorgeous in the air. I've added night lighting, and flying it at dusk is really a thrill. It's a great scale project. It flies at half throttle most of the flight and is good for 12 minutes without pushing the pack.


Sportsman Aviation Paramount 46
Motor - AXI 2826/10
Prop - APC 13/6.5E
Battery - Duralite 4S2P 5000 mAh
Receiver - FMA FS-5 Bulletproof
Servos - 4 Hitec HS-645MG High Torque Servos
Transmitter - Hitec Optic 6
ESC - Castle Creations 60Amp, BEC defeated and a 2S1P 1500-mAh pack using a FMA VR-1 Voltage regulator for Receiver power
Weight 82 oz
Static Thrust - 107 oz
Static Current Draw - 56 Amps
Watts - (Astro Whattmeter) 485
Wing Span: 50.75 Inches
Wing Area: 685 Square Inches
Wing Loading: 17.24 oz./sq.ft.
Cubic Wing Loading: 7.9 oz./cu.ft.
This plane flies the IMAC Basic Aresti perfectly (depending on the pilot). Half throttle for cruising around. 3/4 throttle for most of the IMAC maneuvers. I need a lot of practice to become competitive. It has vertical out of sight and is very maneuverable and predictable. Landings are soft as a feather. All in all it's a great plane. It says that it will fly 3D, but I'm not there yet.

On the bench is a Quique Somenizini Yak 54, 72 inch wingspan. Will follow up on this in weeks to come as it gets put together and flown.

Hello FDIX,

Nice looking plane ....you say performance is good for such a cheap motor, how good? what kind of speed will it do?
Also I wasn't aware that you could use 3s lippo on a 6v motor I've had a couple of Graupner Terry's with the 6v motor and they say 6-8 cells so that's 9.6v max...Lippo 11.1volt? I got a brushless set up in the end it's a lot faster but I wished I'd known that I could have put a 3s Lippo in there...I would have tried that first.

Forgive my ignorance I've not been flying that long still picking things up.

I've powered the speed 400 and 600's with 3S lipo's myself. They are able to handle it, to a point, but they don't last long at all. Which is why I went completely away for the can motors and now fly only Brushless. The added expense pays off in not having to buy new motors when the breshed motors fail.

fdix
10-03-2005, 09:07 PM
Of course 3s lipo on a speed 400 6V is only a temporary solution. I had a few lying around and wanted to get rid of them before going brushless. They last about 30 five minute all out flights.

I don’t know the exact speed, but it’s faster than a microjet which we clocked at 65mph in level flight. Next time I have the radar gun with me I’ll check…

I'm ascared of fast planes!!!

Performance doesnt only mean fast, at least in my book.

High performance to me means the plane does what a full scale model of the modeling subject would do. I've seen full scale clipped wing Cubs do some really wild things, and at about 200-300 ft, in your face aerobatics. That's performance, but at slow speed.

My Starlet is a good example. It is a scale model of a full size plane. And it flies like it. The full scale plane was able to do most of the normal aerobatic manuevers. It certainly didn't do 3D, nor does the model.

3D by definition is the ability of a model to do things that a full scale model of the same plane would not be able to do. I don't mind watching 3D, but have no interest in doing it.

At the end of the season I swapped over to try a couple of new models. The D05 and a Jibe. Both pictured here, the yellow and black model is the Jibe and is now my number one model. powerd by 19 cells spinning the prop well over 40k RPM she really chews up the course.

I am trying various set ups currently. The Neu 1110 goes well and is nice and cheep at £80 odd.

I have orderd a Haker B40 to give that a go and also looking at Kontronic motors as well as trying to find the right balance between speed, weight and amp draw.

The problem we are having is the GP1100 cells obviously need to be treated a lot more carfully than the GP2200's or 2000 that are the common cell used in F5D.

Rob,

Jason

With the set up i have on the Neu motor its 45amps static the problem is that i have no idea what happens in the air. The noise from the prop and motor changes as you pull round Pylon one for the first time and the whole thing winds up in the air.

I have asked the question in other forums and had different answers. On the ground the prop could be pulling harder and thus in the air it unloads and pulls less amps, or the prop is stalled and cavitating on the ground and once in the air ir bites and pulls more amps.

So yes you are right, the amps i am pulling are a lot less than the 7 cell 150amp+ set ups some of my competitors are using. I went that way for a wile but decided there must be anouther way when i started melting the fuz.

I have added one of those in flight data loggers to my Santa wish list but unfortunatly I dont think i have been a good enough boy to get it this year.

I have heard and read that the higher pitch props (at least in F5B) pull more amps in the air because the prop is stalled on the ground.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cavitation

Cavitation is the formation of pockets of vapor in a liquid. This process is caused by low pressures (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressure) in the liquid. When the local ambient pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressure) at a point in the liquid falls below the liquid's vapor pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vapor_pressure), the liquid undergoes a phase change to a gas, creating "bubbles," or, more accurately, cavities, in the liquid.
The physical process of cavitation is almost exactly the same as that which occurs during boiling (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiling). The major difference between the two is how the phase change is effected. Boiling raises the vapor pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vapor_pressure) of the liquid above its local ambient pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressure) to cause the phase change to a gas, whereas cavitation is caused by a drop of the local ambient pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pressure) below the vapor pressure (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vapor_pressure).
In order for cavitation to occur, the cavitation "bubbles" need a surface on which to nucleate (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucleation). This surface can be provided by the side of a container, impurities (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impurity) in the liquid, or other irregularities.
Liquid temperature is a major factor in how much cavitation occurs. Changing temperatures alter the vapor pressure of a liquid dramatically, making it easier or harder for the local ambient pressure to dip below the vapor pressure to cause cavitation.


So you can't vaporize a fluid that is already at a gaseous state...


Sorry but I had to :)

I would like to recommend the Voodoo too. It is the craziest plane I have. It is about 1/3 the size of that Vendetta video plane and does 170 straight and level (183 in 20 deg dive) with a Mega 16/15/2, TP 2100, cc45, and 4.1 X 4.1 prop. I was quite intimidated when I first flew it but I'm catching up. I can provide link if anyone wants.

Yes, I have radared it. That is how I got 201mph. If you Doppler the first run on the Video you should get around 175mph. The others will not doppler as I had to do passes far away from us so the cameraman could keep it in sight. This flight was with 7 X 7 prop to be nice to electrics. It doesn't stress anything with that prop. I used 7.4 X 8.0 for the radared speed runs. Here is what the radar holder had to say:



Discussion - Neu powered Vendetta on Radar today...BIG numbers!
Hey guys,
Erik the Vendetta guy is now the proud owner of a Prospeed radar gun. He came out to fly with me and Marcus today.

There was very little wind today. At times it was dead calm, just very cold!

With a 7x7 Aeronuat the Vendetta flew around in the low 170's with one long run and a slight dive bringing it up to 190 mph.

Erik then loaded the plane up with another set of batteries and switched to a 7.4 x 8 APC pylon prop. The acceleration was much faster and the plane did every pass at over 190. So, Erik went a long ways away and came back straight at us. I watched the radar gun pick up the plane at about 196 and it climbed all the way to 201 as he went over our heads.

201 mph. I was pretty surprised. That's darn fast.
The Neu motor was only 100 degrees when he got the wing off. Very good stuff and it just proves you get what you pay for.

The radar gun picked up our planes very well and plenty far away. My Cyclone stalls at about 18mph and will climb verticly (right from launch) at 54mph and hold until you can't see it. http://static.rcgroups.com/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif My Swift heli turned in a dissapointing top speed of 62mph. I think it needs a ducted fan between the skids. http://static.rcgroups.com/forums/images/smilies/wink.gif

Nice. Very nice. Been checking out your website Paul. I have a question a little of the topic, but what price do you sell your lightest Doculam (20 - 30 micron) covering film. I am thinking of getting into indoor models and this would be a great film to use. Please PM me.

Masterpiece,

I am not sure what type of image software you have but if you try to save the file as a JPG format do you have the option to change the compression amount? If so increase the compression to get the file size down or if you can resize they image this will also bring the file size down.

Hi from Straaliya,

I've just purchased a "Dynamic" in the Speed 400 class I'm told. This is my first Pylon. The insides are:

Mega 16/15/2 & APC 4.1x4.1

Any comments, suggestions (warnings!) before I go airbourne?

cheers

yep. go for as high a pitch speed as you can for max speed.

you might know bill hamilton. at the 2004? (maybe 2003) easter pylon racing champs, everyone was using 16/15/2s and 4.5/4.1 props etc (battery weight was limited to 100g i think from memory- restricting us to no more than 19A as only 12C batteries existed then)...and we specced up a very high kv motor on a 3 in prop with 5 inch pitch.

had a top speed about 40 mph faster than everything else...he flew at 3/4 throttle for 3 out of the 4 minutes, then hit full throttle for the last minute...put 3 laps on the whole field i that last minute!!

so we reckon pitch speed is the key.

maybe this will help...

oh btw we did see some wing delamination though after... avg speed was 85mph with top speeds over 130mph...not bad for a 3s 1500mah plane.

Here's mine! It's got to be the cheapest moulded hotliner available in Australia with a cheap power setup from United Hobby/Hobby City. I have been hanging out for a hotliner for nearly two years because I couldn't justify the cost, so you can imagine how amazed I was when Model Flight came out with the Lanyu F5B (the same as the Hobby Lobby Tiger, Top Models Wilco and Graupner Speed) for under AUD $400:eek:. No kidding, the FVK Bandit sells here for AUD $420:eek::eek::eek:.

Here's what powers it:

Motor
HXT 35-48-B 900 kv $25.95 US
https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITE...?idProduct=3888 (https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITEDHOBBIES/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=3888)

Batteries
HXT D9 2200 mAh 4s 1P 30-30C X2 (4S2P) $73.00 US
https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITE...?idProduct=2133 (https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITEDHOBBIES/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=2133)

ESC
OEMRC 60 Amp $48.01 US
https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITE...?idProduct=3730 (https://www.unitedhobbies.com/UNITEDHOBBIES/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=3730)

Driving the following props I get the these numbers:

13X7 Graupner folder
14.52 Volts
49.7 Amps
722 Watts
9210 RPM

13X8 Aeronaut folder
14.25 Volts
51.4 Amps
733 Watts
8940 RPM

Yes I know I could stuff a lot more powerful equipment in it, but it climbs like a homesick Angel and is getting very small after 4 seconds :D. It is the perfect high performance sports model for me and I get a real kick out of it every time I take it out.

When it comes to controlling the Lanyu I prefer higher quality stuff and use HS 56HB servos, JR RS70 Rx and a MPX Evo 9 radio. The Tiger is even cheaper in the US, especially when it's on sale. If you are after a hotliner on a budget, get one of these!

Okay, not sure if this "really" qualifies as high performance, but you can be the judge. This is a Wing Mfg P-39:
55" WS
AUW: 6lbs
Motor: justgofly 710kv
Batteries: 2 3S2P 4650mAh maxamps LiPos in series
Prop: 11x7 APC E
Max static rpm: 11,200
Max current draw (with above prop): 38A

A friend built this plane with a ST .46 and they are extremely close in performance, the electric has a very slight advantage with fully charged batteries and obviously, loses that advantage as the batteries get drained. I plan on rebuilding the fuse to see if I can drop 1/2 lb off of the fuse.

It is a lot of fun to fly:D

Jim,
That is the QM40 sized Vendetta by Lyle Larson converted. It is a Neu (15/21...)Motor. I'm going to have to look up the numbers on the motor in an old thread but we used 3.....3s,3p Evo 3700's. So...9s3p (~33 volts under load and 78 amps at takeoff, 65-70 at cruise at 185-190mph.) I only flew that thing about 4 or 5 times only using 2 different props. I think it had more potential than 200. Anyway, a guy from Bermuda wanted it and I already was thinking about the next plane. Oh yea, I was using a Hackermaster 135 amp speed control. I wanted to go faster and have more room for batteries so here it is.

We designed/created/ and then flew this plane a month ago and got 226 mph on maiden flight on prospeeed radar (and video)
with no spinner (2.4 inch flat plate on the front.... spinner was vibrating too much).

My friend posted the video (http://www.rcuniverse.com/buynow/keywordclick.cfm?bid_id=1771) here if anyone wants to see/hear.
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showatt.php?attachmentid=1500685

I can find the build threads for both of them if you want details.
I guess I could throw a few in:
I bought a Neu Bam motor, CC-HV-110, and 3,...3s TP Xtreme 5000's. So, again 30-sum volts but 130-150 amps now. We sort of spanked the batteries on the maiden you see there.

This is my Gentle Lady (Mustang Sally, I call her), :D:D:D.

AUW = 2lb's 8oz's

Now for the POWER plant.
Medusa BEC 3 amp version for RX and servos.
CC85HV, using TP3300 2x3cell lipos in series, extreme version, for 25volts.
PJS1500 with APC 13x7 prop, with my custom heatsink motor mount.
Current draw is 25volt x 87amps = 2175 WATTS.
That's 870 watts per lb.
She makes the wings twist and shout all the way straight into the clouds.
