bionic zoom interface,
Does that mean you have to drill a hole in my head???
On the WrongWay cam you have to learn to glide like a beauty queen or else the camera transmits the thump thump thump of your foot steps. (I was not doing so well today) Also, like the pageant contestant you can't look back and forth and move your head much or it makes the viewers dizzy. Really is a knack to video yourself when flying...but if you notice in the vid, the field was empty and nobody around.
I was not happy with my Yak today. I did some servo switching and wound up with JR8411's on elevators....nice servo but I only have 1.25 inch arms, certainly not enough throw....gotta go back to 1.5's or more and try for bevel to bevel.
I was also having fun with my 58 inch Slide with Saito 100. Something about a lesser expensive plane and the pucker factor...and the 11 ounces per square wing loading makes you want to get it down......great plane to practice for the 50cc and higher which certainly turn more heads.
BTW this has the JC SuperProp 16x4 on there....the wood is so much better than others as it is very dense, stiff, and hard.....In the last century Brazil exported this wood to the wealthy in Europe to make broom stick handles that lasted and did not break or bend. . Pau Marfim (translates to Wood Ivory) only grows in South America, mostly in Brazil.
You missed it at FX3D when Dmitriy burried his 29x8 in the dirt when the gear collapsed. It went in with the motor running and was up to mid blade....Wiped off the dirt and ready to fly. .... Good stuff.
