You scratch my back
. I owed ya one :-D. All i gotta say is that i don't care what the atheists say- God works in some crazy and fun ways
Warbird, i hope you take care of my friend Helomix; he's done well by me!
JeffLee, i know you're reading this as instructed you how to get here, so please, realize that we've worked together on this and everything worked out great, pending warbird's and helo's sale
On my end, i've just dropped another $260+ on this bad boy (that includes the plane). Still need to drop another $200+ before i'm done. Already spent...christ. Let me not go there. Please remember that i'm starting form bare bones nothing, so this includes lipos, battery charger an balancer, and other stuff. Thank God this project is being funded by another... At this point, the cheapest part of the plane, other than the servos, was the computer lol! Christ i hope i don't crash.
I think i also found my emergency parachute. Yes, like the real predator it will have one. I should get it to hit the ground at 4mph, assuming the wind doesn't take it. Of course, that's that particular one, and i need to see how much the set up weights. Any more than a pound and i will have to go another way. Its a 22ft cargo one. it used to be complete with a separating explosive. lol. i'll need to add that back in for kicks
. As for how i'll deploy it, the guys at Larry's Hobby Supplies came up with a great idea that is light weight and simple.
Helo, if you need a motor and an ESC, pm me. i have a guy who dropped his price for me on a great set, but notified me too late. Like i told you via PM, i do have a guy who has some lipo batts you'd be interested in, but i have to test them out first.
