RE: 150 meter rule.

Thanks Don I missed you guys big time. The weather was so perfect I kept whining in my head "I wish I was in VA, I wish I was in VA", but Grace ran her personal best, and I like to think it was 'cuz...

RE: 150 meter rule.

Cheating at 200 gets you 5 secs extra time which is a lot when you think about it, but the real question is what does the community want to do about it. Personally telling the difference between 175...

RE: 150 meter rule.

I totally agree with all the comments above. I just got back from practicing at the field shown in the last picture above, and I can say my own habit had been to fly well past 200 yards and bringing...

RE: 150 meter rule.

Brian,

You can see the obliqueness from some of the photos themselves, but I would add that the distance shown on the FARM photo agrees precisely with the 150M pole they have, and even a 5%...

RE: 150 meter rule.

Thanks Earl. Great stuff. My BEC is set above 6v so I would have struggled with that for sure. Can't wait to see exactly where I'm flying.

RE: 150 meter rule.

RE: 150 meter rule.

Looking at the Fredricksburg photo above I'm thinking a couple things about last fall.

1) I think we were flying past the house on the left and turning in the middle of the far left field which...

RE: 150 meter rule.

I hope you guys have a chance to do just that! Sadly I have to go to my daughters X-country meet on Saturday as my wife is out of town. Here's a Google Earth shot showing 150, 175, and 250 meters. ...

RE: 150 meter rule.

Nothing can beat this for checking where you really are flying. Can't wait to visit my buddies in VA and try it out!!

RE: 150 meter rule.

Google Earth is an incredible tool for checking this at every field! I LOVE the ruler. Wish I'd tried that yesterday. Here's a redo of the FARM field in VA where I have gone to many competitions. ...

RE: 150 meter rule.

O.k. I'm the first to admit when I'm wrong, and I have doggedly pursued dead ends before, but I really think all FAI flyers are WAAAAY outside 175 meters these days. My primary evidence comes from...

RE: 150 meter rule.

In particular you can see this field which is only 20 minutes from my house. I don't want to practice at 150m and then have everyone slam me for flying too small at contests.

150 meter rule.

Just wondering what guys think about the 150 meter rule in general. I have been using Google Maps this morning to look at satellite photos of fields at which I have flown, and I am fairly certain I...

RE: Composite-ARF Integral, kinda build thread

Hi Joe,

Congratulations on your new plane! For what it's worth, I briefly owned one of the planes built by Ryan and can say without hesitation that he knows how to build one heck of a great...

RE: Ordered new batteries . . . we'll see . . .

I have a total of 4 flights on the batteries now. The IRs on both are 0.x to 1.x. I haven't graphed them inflight yet, but will try to do that tomorrow. My short answer is: these are great...

RE: Wow! Jeti Mezons! Who else has heard?

I am by no means an expert and can only repeat what I believe I heard, but I think you can get a small Jeti Box Pro that shows the telemetry but you do need a Duplex Rx onboard, but again I have no...

Wow! Jeti Mezons! Who else has heard?

So I was trying to buy a Kontronik JIVE FAI 120HV from EspritModels.com and talking to Danny when he asked if I knew about the upcoming line from Jeti called the Mezon (meh-zun). He then told me...

RE: New Plettenberg F3A motor

Woodie, I see where they state 565g. I wonder if that is a typo? Anyways, I too am a bit disappointed to learn that this motor is on the "heavy" side. Truth is I never weighed mine as it came...

RE: New Plettenberg F3A motor

Not sure if they changed this at some point, but Plettenberg advertises 595g on their site. I wonder if the 565 was an early guess rather than the actual. Either way you can add me to the long list...

Initial IR's as measured on a CellPro 10S for both batteries I bought are between 1.7 and 2.5. Very promising start!
