Talking Up To No Good

Hi Everyone My avatar is my Up To No Good , Look not to bad for a 53 year old female pilot Huh I would love to retire at 55 and just fly fly fly, and i am working on it, just 2 more years, hopefully, maybe, wishing,
having to work full time, takes all of my time away from flying and building I am looking into starting a online buisness that wont take up all of my time, after retirement, Sooo I will be semi retired, I figure I wont be able to fully retire at 55, but semi retired sounds good to me Take care Everyone, Chellie

The next time I put togeather an open-structure balsa plane, I will try using it as a covering alternative
Hi Spencer this pusher jet flies nice, I had some trouble with some of the electronis, I should have known better than veer away from tried and tested electronics that I normally use, I was trying to be Cheap, and it cost me more time, after I got the good stuff in the pusher jet, OMG, it flew great, like if it was on rails, and barrel rolled fast too, no more corona receivers for me, and I am going to stick with my 30 amp esc, I used a 25 amp one, and it shut down on me, with a bigger prop, that never happened with that same prop and motor with a 30amp Esc, Oh well live and learn, Take care, Chellie


Ps let us know how that film covering works out

Chellie

I finally finished my RUSSA [Really Ugly Slow Stick Airplane]. I started back in April and it is based on your design using posterboard. I used poster board, depron, Balsa and plywood. I probably built it strong enough to put a glow engine on [not] but hopefully it will fly. I have to learn how to upload a pic and I can't remember the thread it was on. It weighs in at 21 1/2 oz. without the battery but all other equipment. I hope it will fly. The wing appears that it might flutter but we will find out on the maiden. The red and blue stripes on the rudder were printed on clear Avery label material. It isn't totally clear so when placed over a color it shows sort of a fading of the color underneath. I printed RUSSA, My ama # and name on the same material and put it on the wing. I spray panted the foam with red Krylon [PS don't do it, it eats up the foam] and painted the boom with some dark blue water based enamel I had. 20 Amp esc with a 2810 equivelent brushless.

Hi Superbee thats great to hear that you got your plane done, Krylon makes a paint called SHORT CUTS its safe for foam, use in thin coats or Krylon H2O paint, also use in thin coats as its a little on the heavy side, your plane should fly Ok, because it has a lot of wing area to it, and will carry a lot of weight, Good luck to you on your maiden flight, Waiting on your pictures, take Care, Chellie

Default RUSSA [Really Ugly Slo Stick Airplane]

Trying to upload pictures. How is it done? Hope this works Chellie. I didn't fly today. It was blowing about 10 mph and I am still not considered safe without a buddy box :-). Also closer inspection revealed the upper rudder hinge had not glued to the verticle stabilizer. I used hinges there instead of tape,

along the top bar of the Quick reply and also on the advanced you will see a small yellowish square this is what you click to link your picture IF you have it posted on a host site like Photobucket....Otherwise you can make it an attachment and post it directly to this forum this is covered in this topic.

Thanks. I think it came out ok. check out my RUSSA based on a design by Chellie. This reminds me of the story of the fellow that was invited out to dinner with Chef Mario of Baked fillet of ocean salmon with asparagus spears. Creamy potatoes with philadelphia cream cheese sauce. and a fine champagne. He asked for the recipe and invited over guests for a dinner. The announcement at the beginning of the meal was this. " I have duplicated Chef Mario's presentation. I didn't have any salmon so I substituted canned tuna fish patties, no Asparagus so I put on some canned green beans and some potato salad for the potato dish. I didnt have any champagne so I substituted club soda. If you don't like the dish you will have to blame Chef Mario becaus it is his recipe." In that spirit I say Blame Chellie if you don't like it LOL

I like it! You did a great job on the build and Chellie posts some good build threads, I had to go find this one after seeing what you had done. When I get finally situated financially here enough to really get back in the hobby and not just read and talk about it one of her builds will be my entry and this one or the one you did Superbee will be it.

Thank you Oimmuk for the complements thats the beauty of these flat out foamy builds, they are Cheap fun, the depron or Foam Board is cheap, the towerpro motors are inexpensive, and the electronics are fairly inexpensive too, i think this pusher jet was only about 3 or 4 dollars of depron, and some misc bass wood and epoxy, for just the plane, the electronics are the most expensive part, but can be bought for not to much money, a hitec 4 channel radio is all one needs and some towerpro 9 gram servos, Hope you get to building soon, take care, Chellie

Hi Everyone well, I wanted to go out and fly my pusher today, but my motor was stopping, Hummm, now what, this pusher jet is the only one that has given me electrical problems, Oh well, FIX IT i took the motor apart, thinking the shaft was bent, after my last crash, but it looked good, put it in a drill motor and turned it, and it looked straight, I also checked the the windings with a ohm meter, and to ground, everything good, Hummmmm , Ok i found it, a loose connection at the motor, its was Single Phasing, I think thats what its called I need to solder those wires together, i just had them crimped, and it got loose, somehow, I will try to fly it tomorrow after work, here are some pics of the jet with the servos, esc ,linkages etc, take care, Chellie

Added Info : ON THE AILERON SERVOS, YOU WILL NEED TO GET a( Y CONNECTOR ) FOR THEM, TO SLIT UP THE SIGNAL, THEN JUST ONE END OF THE Y CONNECTOR PLUGS INTO THE RECEIVER

Hi Chellie,
As usual, your builds are always good and you are so informative about them. Everyone appreciates your extra effort so we can understand easily. Thanks.....

I've had the same problem with both of my TowerPro 2180 motors They are both trashed now. I've moved onto the better HXT stuff at UnitedHobbies and the 'Grey' TowerPro motors (Don't know what the diffrence is between the grey and gold, there are no funny caps on the grey and I have not had one fail yet)

Also where did you get that battery and ESC?

Good pics Chellie ... ... they will make it easy ? I hope to put this together ... Already have the pieces cut out just need to glue it up ... With the booms where they are can you use a 9 inch prop ?? I thought I read where they are 8 inches apart?? Maybe the answer is that there's no way anyone should need to use a 9" prop ??

So what's next Seems like you have done it all ......what about a "3D"(is that what they call them) .. Build a nice big 3D plane ... Have you done one of these yet ?

Well Thanks Sooooo Much ! ! for the Pusher plans .. I really enjoy building these things.... Hope your Day is Good Chellie.. Bye for now , Don J.

Hi Spencer i got the batteries and esc from Heads up rc, he sells the wow lipo, and its very powerful, here is his link, the lipos are very inexpensive too, Take care, Chellie

Ps I learned on the towerpro motors, that you can not cut to shorten the wires on them, as they are soldered leads from the windings, and if cut , the motor wont work, it wants to Single Phase, lesson learned

I noticed on my two 'gold' towerpro outrunners the color of the windings were diffrent. (Might of been because I fried one :o) One was red and the other was grey...they got to the point where there was more solder than windings and it just was't worth it, espically considering I had other fresh >$30 outrunners at the time. But quite a value. I've used that motor on a Stryker, suprisingly enough. Really hauled too, at around 80ish MPH if not more. I used one of the gnereic 4890 motors and that screamed on the F-27 but only lasted about 10 seconds in the air because the prop adapter busted right off of the smoth shaft. :\ I should of flattened a side, but I don't think that would of done much...
