    RE: Global Hawk UAV - EDF

    I have given up on my global hawk, I put a larger unit 600w fan and now it sort of flies. It has to have a huge battery or lots of weight in the front and flies like a barrel of sh*t. It is a...

    RE: Nitromodels PREDATOR RQ-1B

    the V tail integrates rudder and elevator. You still need 2 channels to do that, with the mixing in the TX if it is computerised. Otherwise you need a V tail mixing gizmo. You still need 2 servos, so...

    RE: Nitromodels PREDATOR RQ-1B

    Ah - no receiver, I guess it will be all robot then GPS guided and fly by wire. I dont know what the rules are in the US but we wouldnt be allowed to do this here in the UK. There would have to be a...

    RE: Global Hawk UAV - EDF

    Tried to fly mine again yesterday, this time with 4S lipo. Couldnt take off again. Guess I will have to re-think the power unit and fan. I am using the pack supplied, only gives about 1.5 lbs thrust...

    RE: Global Hawk UAV - EDF

    This is an explanation for the above pictures:
    1: Servo lead messy, would look nicer hidden in wing tube
    2: Cutting the fuselage so that the wing bolts line up. Could have avoided this if the...

    RE: Global Hawk UAV - EDF

    Just finished my global hawk but not flown yet.
    First of all some general observations:
    The manual is not completely useless, it is photocopied on to one side of a sheet of a4. At least

    RE: Global Hawk UAV - EDF

    Jeff, I took a look at your wing attachments. If I attach mine there is a 1/2" gap, To make it possible for the wings to meet then some surgery is needed on the foam. Is this the same with yours?...

    The box measures 40" x 9" x 5" in the old scale.
    I was a bit concerned about the fan because the housing tunnel is not clean thru and there would appear to be plenty of opportunity for turbulence...
