Scale Projects

Posted 03-10-2008 at 02:32 PM by Tioli (Zen and the Art of RC Flying)

We're working on several scale projects for a customer. Sunday we maidened the Century Models Bell G-47. We had tail issues, so replaced the GWS rate gyro with a GY401 at the field. That improved things a bit. We cut the flight short, preferring to set it up on a JR9303 and work out the bugs, then transfer it back to the customer's Futaba 6EX.

The H500E from Jet-Tech models has T-Rex 450SA mechanics. It was an easy build and flew fine.

Also in the works is a Century...

Dust bunnie in processor heat sink=fan sounding like a turbine

Posted 03-10-2008 at 01:19 AM by xeispen

So i've had my Vaio for a about 3 years now and it's a great machine. But ever since a little while ago just after few minutes of using the computer the thing spools up louder then the Trex, I didn't take much notice of it. So I open it up today and check it out and wipe away all the dust and remove the processor fan, then I remove the big 'ol heat sink off Pentium D processor. The whole thing was caked with dust. Cleaned it out and now this puppy's wisper quiet even while running the sim....

Where does all the time go anyway?

It is kind of strange how for no real good reason you get busy doing stuff and it becomes hard to find time to fly.

Well this is the second weekend in a row I did not fly and now I feel the pressure to get back on the sticks and keep the learning curve going in the right direction.

Last weekend I spent 3 days playing golf and then a week full of work followed by more golf and then I HAD to find time to do something with the family... throw in some unexpected...

Why is the gyro-swh on the front of the TX..
Don't want to appear dumb but I have to ask.
This TX came with my Belt CP.

Question (2) Rough setting of Pit at 10:00 and
end point at 2:00, does that sound good???

Last Question Why is the Gyro set in Reverse.??

Gentlemen I thank you

I just got back from my old middle school with my trex and there was a nice crosswind so I thought it would be perfect for autorotations so I did severall of those too.

After a quick pack change I decided it was all or nothing. FFF and pull the elevator bam a loop not very pretty but its wat it is. after a bunch of those then I did a quick stationary roll. And some back flips. Very cool. My mom got it all on video too. I'm gonna do some editing...
