    CARF-Models 2013 Series 3.1m Extra 330SC

    still pretty expensive airframes there. I was expecting those prices to come down a little by now. They still made here?

    Happy New Year! Hoping all the best to all of the Circus freaks... :biggrin:

    72MHz to 2.4GHz power question

    I believe the difference is in the Rx response times. The 2.4GHz is faster, and that results in a greater surge load as the servos push out with more authority and hence are subject to more wind load.

    Crash or Landing?

    Crash. But, an old friend, Rabbit Ron Schuler would shout "LANDING" any time an aircraft met the ground unintentionally. I always loved his sarcasm...:leaving:

    You missed out on the one I sold... was a super deal. Some guy in PA bought it, paid for a crate and shipping. You had your shot...

    2.4GHz Upgrade for the QQ Yak 86"

    HaHa, you think? Fighting the Zombie Apocalypse would be pretty difficult with a 50cc airplane. A few firearms and a pile of ammo is definitely a better defense.

    2.4GHz Upgrade for the QQ Yak 86"

    Well, it has been two years since I spent all this money to upgrade this beautiful airplane to 2.4GHz. In all of that time, this thing never made it to the field for any flying. Just a month after this was completed, some significant things changed in my personal life that caused me to have far...

    Stupid People

    Sorry, my head was in to the catastrophic potential, and how it bears on RC flying. Two coppers lift lady, one chopper breaks, lady pulls broke one down on her head, splitting her face open, the other can't carry the load, get's a big jerk, lose control, chops lady's arm to pieces as she...

    ummm, is there a succession plan to hand this off to your son if you don't live long enough to finish? LOL, just kidding. Amazing work, like always. Kudos!

    E-Power 101

    When you do a parallel pack setup, be REAL careful about the pack charge states. When packs are fully charged, they need to be close in voltage. You should consider doing a few charge-discharge cycles and then check the charged voltage of all the packs. If any one pack is low more than 1/2 volt...

    E-Power 101

    yea, just look out for those 400-600 kV outrunner motor specs. Most are only good for 6-7 cell packs. Do not try to run a 8S setup on a 7S motor, it will smoke.

    E-Power 101

    You have a lot of options. Using two of your 4S2200 mAH packs, paired in series wiring, will be a 8S pack. That will drive a 500kV motor 14,800 rpm no-load. You probably want a system that will make 1200-1400 watts to get the performance you want, but that pack will result in some short flight...

    THAT BRINGS BACK LOTS OF FOND MEMORIES. I was a wrench head in high school too. Spent my Junior and Senior year in the auto shop building hot rods. Mine was a sleeper 69 Camaro, looked stock but I built up the stock 350 to crank out around 400 ponies. Kicked a lot of Mustang ass back in the day...
