RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

Stu, you need to raise the rear of the wing about 3-5mm and that helps a bit.

The Cessna was never designed to do the speeds that a brushless provides. The climbing has something to do with the...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

I've seen plenty of planes with washers to adjust the thrust angle.

I'm a little concerned about the 7x5.5 prop on 2S (7.4v) though, on 3S (11.1v) it should be OK, but 7 on 2S may give you...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

RCKiwi, you may find the foam is broken at the base of the windscreen also. I've dont this a couple of time myself, and yes there is not enough down thrust in the side-on pic.

Nothing a little...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

Nice Video RCKiwi, whilst I was watching I was thinking 'From my past experiences with unmovable objects (Ground, trees, buildings??,etc....), I'd fly a fair bit higher'....and then the music...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

NiMH should be discharged to 1.0V/cell so the 0.9V setting is the best.

Just 'tin' the wires with solder, use enough heat to make sure the solder has flowed into the center of the strands. Fill...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

Your better off using epoxy (Araldite) as you need to be careful some glues melt the foam. I used to use 5min, but now I just use the max strength one.

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

I cut the thin sections out to ease the load on the Servo's, but there is a train of thought that suggests leaving them to stop air spilling through the gaps.

Gravity, ABC and I were there,...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

If you can get the shaft out its better to straighten it it a vise. Saying that, at the park I just use pliers to get it as straight as I can.

Any wobble will cause a loss of some power so just...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

I used to run 2S and a GWS 8060 HD on my Cessna and it flew very well. It was always better with 3S, but the 2S was a good 2nd battery.

RE: The Big Aussie (SYD) Get Togethers (Group Fly)

It was a shame Gravity and I were the only two flyer's to make it out to Ermington.

The weather wasn't too bad, sunny, light wind, and a golfer to dive bomb when you're out of control (if he...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

I had a good day out at Ermington today also. It was good bringing the Boomerang back in one piece.

Mrs Toyman took some video of it and it is posted here, sorry the Boomerang is just a spot...

RE: Q. about elevators for Skyartec / Art-tech / Parkflyer Cessna 182 (pics) *help*

My Cessna has ended like this a few times.

I just glued it back together with epoxy and added a few Carbon Fibre rods for strength. You should also tape up the wings and the front of the fuslage...

I hope ABC isn't putting the 'mocka' (is that how its spelt?) on you you Mr K.

RE: GWS pico stick brushed/brushless conversion

I got told to use some 5min epoxy and let it get tacky, then put the hinge tape on it, that will make it never come off.

I had to do the same CF mod to my Pico Stick when I built it as I went...

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

I mounted my ESC behind firewall also. When I was testing with the 2408-21 and 8x6HD prop it got warm enough inside the Cessna that I could feel it through the foam so I cut a hole the size of a 20c...

RE: The Big Aussie (SYD) Get Togethers (Group Fly)

After all the trouble of trying to get the last Wing flying you buy another wing?

Someone is a sucker for punishment. Please promise me I'm not going to be there when you try to fly it, hehehe.

RE: Cessna needs more power - help

Come visit our Art-Tech Cessna thread, most of us are running Brushless Outrunners now and have done all the hard work getting it right.

And unlike some people we are glad to help :)

RE: Art-Tech 3Ch Cessna 182 RC Radio Control Plane

Worse case scenario, you could always take a pic of it yourself and post it here.

One of us could edit the pic, and as long as you can solder OK, you could modify the Tx to change Modes.

RE: The Big Aussie (SYD) Get Togethers (Group Fly)

Yes, I bought MiniKatana's PA Katana Mini, though I'm not flying it till I get some practice on my Edge 540. That's if the wind/rain every stops.

[Edit] Looks like I'm heading to Hammondville on...

I've given mine away now as it was on 27MHz, but it did need the wires swapped to go to Mode 2.
