  • Issue#52708: Radio Control - First time flying a warbird

    Wow. I can say I have come pretty far. I flew my first warbird today after just starting to fly RC airplanes in January. Full disclosure: I flew RC heli's for about 5 months before realizing my true calling. I found a local guy selling a Durafly P-40N on craigslist about a week and a half back. Te guy was asking $100 for a PNP bird. I went over and looked at it and dropped him a C-note. It seemed like a good deal. The bird wasn't without problems. Welcome to the world of buying used planes. The rudder servo needs to be replaced but its working. I had to change the push rods for the empennage as well as the clevis'. The servo box needed some work because the hole for the rudder was busted. I made a little 1/2x1/2 tab and Ca'ed them onto the existing servo box. This caused the rudder servo to sit up about 1/8th of an inch and caused some major binding when running from the servo to the tail wheel then onto the rudder. I had an EZ-Link on the servo and on the tailwheel assembly. I ended

  • Issue#83148: Radio Control - Cheerson CX 20 flew away once, ordering a new one but this time i dont wanna ruin it

    Hello all, As you can read in the title, I had my first 'real' quad some weeks ago. The Cheerson CX 20. But unfortunately it has flown away on me. The cause of this I still haven't figured out. But gearbest was so nice to sell me a new one with some discount. So once I receive it I wanna try to get it up in the air again. As you may think i'm scared as hell that I, or the device itself, has a problem again and it flies away again. I seriously cannot handle this if it were to happen again. The cause of my first fly away is still unknown. I ruled out that it was my own, human error since it did not respond to any of my input. Once I noticed it was flying away from me I completely took off the throttle, it still didnt respond and then I tried return to home which also did not work. So till this day I am unsure what caused my quad to fly away and crashed into oblivion 3km away. So my question here is: how to avoid this from happening again. I have been searching through dozans of yout

  • Issue#385141: Radio Control - B-17 Flying Fortress visited Shuttle Landing Facility (Kennedy Space Center, Fl)

    Hello, like to share a few pictures from a visiting B-17 Flying Fortress and this 71-year old World War 2 bomber is no where tired yet. According to the crew who I had the luck and pleasure to interview, the plane was built in 1944 by Douglas Aircraft Corporation at the Long Beach, California plant under license from Boeing. On July 12, 1945, she was delivered to the U.S. Army Air Corps as B-17G-95-DL 44-83872. Number 44-83872 was one of the last 20 B-17s built by Douglas. The Commemorative Air Force’s Gulf Coast Wing "Texas Raiders" group maintains and flies the aircraft. She is hangared at Tomball Jet Center, which is located at David Wayne Hooks Memorial Airport in Spring, Texas. The crew told me that it was moved to Dallas, TX. as its new hangar home. Needless to say, it came in for an early morning landing a few minutes before 0900 hours Eastern at the Shuttle Landing Facility (SLF) at the Kennedy Space Center, Florida and I was lucky to be at the right place and

    With the help of the RC Groups forum members, I think I may have my X8 in a ready to fly condition. I recently upgraded the firmware to 1.49 using the S8 Assistant, and after the update, everything seems to function, acquired 8 satellites, and the functions all seem to be working properly. However, one thing that I cannot figure out is why the satellite map in the S8 Assistant shows China, and not the USA. Does anyone know why or have an explanation for that? Thanks in advance.

  • Issue#899370: Radio Control - Anyone Else Spend More Time Fixing Their Quad Than Flying It?

    Hmmm... So over the past few months I've probably spent 5 times as much time fixing quads than flying them. I'm just curious if anyone else has had similar experiences where you spend more time on the bench than in the air. My experience over the past few months so far, I think I'm trending at getting about 4 packs in between serious crashes. :eek: - Fly first pack LOS, quad loses orientation and I cut the motors and drop it at the end of a field, gets dragged off into the woods by a Fox as I'm chasing after it never to be seen again... 10 days grounded. - Fly for a day then crash at 60mph into a concrete wall.. 7 days grounded waiting for parts. - Get brand new quad, crash twice into a tree and I figured out later it snagged some wiring. Flying 100 feet in the air practicing back flips when the motors cut out, plowed nose first in a full speed dive into soft dirt, leaving a 5" crater, nose breaks off and quad is lodged in the dirt... 8 days grounded. - Flying above a parking lo

  • Issue#1003285: Radio Control - Flying Cx-10w quadcopter first time

    Anyone experienced this cheerson cx-10w nano quadcopter?. I did my first flight today and it seems one must have initial flying skills to start this as hobby... This nano quadcopter has integrated FPV camera and it binds with your smartphone (iphone in my case) via an app ...u can see live streaming on your phone while flying. Since its a very tiny device so controlling is a bit of challenge...hit the wall of my garage couple of times and u can see twisted propellers in the pictures... Any one who has done a stable flight , please share ur experience. Thanks

  • Issue#1078691: Radio Control - Flying with others for the first time

    Last night, for the first time, I flew with some other quad pilots who I had met on FB. In addition to being the first time I'd flown with other pilots, it was the first time I'd flown at a spot that had trees. I normally just fly in an open field with, at best, some low bushes. - I'd never seen quads being flown aggressively from 3rd person view. I've only seen my own FPV and FPV videos. Man these things COOK! You don't get a real perspective on speed until you see it from LOS with someone else flying. And the forward tilt is extreme! They almost look like they're flying vertically. - Tuning my goggles to someone else's channel while they flew was wild. I've watched tons of FPV video but seeing it "live" was very different. It was also surprisingly disorienting. I can watch FPV videos all day long but standing with goggles on while someone else flies made me a bit wobbly! - I can't talk while I fly. - 4S is where it's at. This was the first time my 3s quad felt slow. I

  • Issue#890: Radio Control - Winter Storm Jonas / Flying the Chroma

    I had a blast today flying in Winter Storm Jonas. Took my Blade Chroma out with a brand new GB203 gimbal. I'm impressed as hell with the stability and results from this gimbal and GoPro Hero 4k Black. Before I took off, I used scotch tape and sealed up all of the vents AND the power switch on the Chroma. I'm not sure if this is necessary, but I feel like covering those vents is a good idea as you can see some parts of the fc board are exposed in the front at the very least. Other than that, the Chroma is a trooper in Stability Mode in this type of weather. I was running the CamCarbon props by Carolina Dronz which most definitely helped out. You can see the wind pushing against me, but this video is amazingly stable for the conditions... I hope to do a lot more videos in the future.

LibrePilot takes longer than usual to choose the FC in wizard then on setting the motor start points that SW motor runs seemingly slower and rattly, then on saving the wizard settings it gets to preparing mixer settings and crashes there.
