Flaperons

Hi All,
I don't know how this will translate through different radios but ...
I set up the EDF for flaperons according to a tutorial. This was done on an Freewing F-16 with a Futaba T10J radio.

Yes, I will be dealing with a higher stall speed. Unless I go back to the stock setup, the weight will have to remain.

Yes, I kind of though that it would unload and get a forced air induction at speed. I'd rather have the cover on the cheater hole for 2 reasons.
Being where it is located, I believe it is creating...

Ok, I just had the opportunity to do an A/B check with and without the cheater hole. It's a close race. Without the cheater hole, it peaked out at 3.85lbs of thrust.
With it, it peaked at 4.2lbs....

Thanks for the hit solentlife!
Unfortunately, this hole is right on the duct work so I'll have to keep the scoop external, much like the pic I attached.

I hadn't been on here in a while. Good to see you're still here.
If you get a chance, look at my other post concerning the F-16 cheater hole and see what you think.

Wing CG Calculator

Hi All,
Don't know if anyone has seen this yet but works well for "any" wing.
Worked great for my delta.

Freewing F-16 Cheater Hole

Hi All,
Couldn't find a current thread on this.

I have the FW 70mm F-16 V1. It has a cheater hole right between the main gear on the bottom. It's just a rectangular 3 x 2.25 opening. It would...

Thanks for your thoughts.
My outlook is that after the EDF aircraft has landed, the throttle stick is usually in an idle or stop position. At that point, an electronic reversal would be engaged by a...

Reverse Thrust Braking?

Has anyone done this with an EDF? Wouldn't it be more practical than mechanical brakes? It would seem pretty easy to electronically reverse the motor wires to create this. I know the tubing isn't...

EDF Motor Maintenance

Do these EDF motors require any lubrication? I have 2 that have hardly been run and somewhere in the rpm range, they both seem like they have a slight rough spot. I don't know if I can...

The 6C would be for an upgraded EDF that I will switch out for the stock EDF. The upgrade has 2x the thrust as the stock one. I feel the need for speed. :)

Lipo Question

What is the shelf life of a lipo in storage mode? Does it lose any performance on the shelf or does degradation occur just with cycling?
Should I bring it to full charge in certain...

Hi Dereck,
When I received this Life battery, I charged it to 6.7v. (3.35/c)
When I turn on the transmitter, it still reads this or at least has been toggling between 6.7 - 6.6. Like I...

Telemetry

Looking at some alternatives for telemetry sensors. I'm not sure which ones would be compatible for a 10J Futaba. Will FrSky work?
I found this one for voltage.

Thx.

RC Lander 70mm EDF Test

Hello All,
Thought I'd share my tests on this RC Lander. This is also a vid so those interested can hear the 10 blade version.

I used a 6S Revo 3200mah 40C HV lipo charged to 4.30v/cell.
It...
