RE: living room flyer

yeah, I was flying the blue bipe outdoors with great results
until this snow hit. I thought it would be under powered but
it pulls along just fine... provided there's no wind.

I've had this...

RE: living room flyer

The blue bipe needs about 30'x30' so maybe not the most practical lrf.
Good for a gym though or small backyard.
With all the terms like backyard flyer, micro, super micro, lrf & the like

RE: living room flyer

Nick, this hoverpod did ok also too but the gear in it is the
same as what's in the CrashFX.
The only differences being the prop and shortened wire to the
actuator & the length of the lipo...

RE: living room flyer

thanks Nick, the covering is Reynolds wrap and sticks very
well with CA glue where as the other clear wraps I used
wouldn't. It also shrinks well by holding a soldering iron
underneath the...

RE: living room flyer

tam popo, I've seen the Rookie but never picked one up.
Looks to be the standard for the $25-30 range and should
work in the plans I posted.
The design does work for a really nice flyer. The...

RE: living room flyer

The first few flights were good, about the same as
the bipe but with more lift.
I had some problems with the battery charging so
I removed the circuit board that was attached to the lipo.

RE: living room flyer

That Square6 flies very tight!
I think I'm building too big yet so after I finish up on
this tripe I'll try something smaller.
A little over 8 gms, wing incidence is adjustable and
the motor...

RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

The sharpie would do it! I always wondered why they were interested more in
the condition of the box than the contents. Also explains why some of my earlier
purchases had the decals already...

RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

No problems with the stab but the yellow RF turned out to be really tail heavy.
Mounting the lipo in the wing to slim down the fuse didn't work like it did on
my other AA version. Instead of...

RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

Sounds like a fun build! I seen a rc snowmobile at Radio Shack last year
and some hover craft at Toys r Us last week. Other than that... but seriously,
being an avid flyer I doubt you'd enjoy 4...

RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

Naw, already switched it over to AA gear. Even seems to have a bit
more power... but, the ground's now slush... so, on to build something
new.

the Cessna's gear complete with plans. (pic below)

Thanks Tim, hey, those Jet Scream works you sent me are
going into this SIG Tri-Star I scaled down.

small rubber grommet. Glides nice...

Sharp looking Sea Duck micro!
I like that racing version of the P-38 also. Using two actuators for
improved turning?
Finished up this Rolling Fury mod done in balsa. A bit heavy this one...

RE: Aero Ace Lipo Upgrade

I put a 250mah in my AA PowerHawk it worked. A little faster and
a longer flight time. I've only flew a few times though for about
20 minutes total so I can't tell you the long term effects.

Thanks Tim. I missed that thread. It seems you either love or hate the rf.
I too found that pulling the antenna out of the tail and leading it out towards
the back solved the glitches like...

Fern, after reading all I could on the rolling fury I've never ran into anything

I finished up this rf balsa and it flies very quick and stable. Down elevator is

RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

micro, that Hoopskirt is bizarre! Imagine chasing that around as a ff .020:)
The wing I made has 5 cuts (and breaks) in it. Though I have thought of building
a straight wing, soaking it in water...

Thanks micro, here's the other frame up for the rf I purchased on ebay.
The fuse is much slimmer this time around and built like a lever toward
the tail. I seen another rf sold on ebay 2 days ago...

RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

You can double the length of the antenna wire by soldering wire to
the exsisting antenna wire. Also fresh batteries in the transmitter helps
range problems.

RE: Air Hogs Aero Ace!

Thanks, it does fly much better than stock (which wanted to loop constantly).
I just recently bought another one on ebay. I can't find them at Target or
TrU anymore. I think they've been...
