The Shuttle's been bad. Broken flybar cage leads to cutting the flybar and discarding the stock paddles.

One Color please

Posted 03-07-2008 at 09:26 PM by rdlohr

So, you apparently can't paint a girls bedroom one color. I thought ceiling white would look nice on everything.

Daughter 1:
Ceiling: Ceiling White
Walls: Orange
Trim (Doors and baseboards) : Blush Tone Pink
Windows: White

Daughter 2:
Ceiling: Ceiling White
Walls: Purple
Trim (Doors and baseboards) : Easter Pink
Windows: White

I have to admit, they both turned out really nice.

I did the closets...

Alright, so it's not a helicopter, but hopefully with a little practice, my latest purchase should be able to hover as well .

Meet my new E-Flite Extra 260 3D:

I went with a very basic package: ARF kit, E-Flite motor, Castle ESC and Spektrum 6200 receiver. I'll be using the servos from my Blade 400 (DS75) and hook it up with my DX6i.

Hopefully I can build it this weekend and fly it on sunday.

Spektrum DX6i and RealFlight

Posted 03-05-2008 at 09:12 PM by int2str (From The Sideline)

I've posted a guide on how to setup the Spektrum DX6i (that comes with the E-Flite Blade 400) and RealFlight G4. You can see the guide here:

I've gotten various PM's in the past asking me about this setup, so I'm glad I could finally get around to making a complete guide for this.

Making the tutorial was also a nice camera exercise. I wanted to take pictures...
