"It seems that one guy flew his multi-rotor under 30 feet high somewhere 5+ miles away from the airport and a neighbor called a police. Police reported it down the line at the time the multi-rotor pilot landed and went home.
The hype is growing and…"
This fin is approximately the same size as original. You can click on the link to see plans.
I noticed that 9 out of 10 general RC gliders (and planes most of the time) make fins without calculating its proper size. That includes Radian and…"
That's one way to see it.
I've been flying a Graphite 2E for 4 years and from day 1 I made a glass hatch that holds the gopro camera in itself. It still holds. Camera weighs about 75 grams and one would think it adds stress to the hatch, which…"
Thanks for a quick answer! I am not about to start comparison of Maxa and many other gliders. Agree, they are different league.
Yes, Maxa has carbon wings and Maxa made for competition and I have to work around it for FPV. Your glider made…"
Thanks a lot for your reply!
As I stated before, we're interested in empty weights, especially by-part weights. What I personally need it for is to equip it by my specs and figure out the TOW based on my equipment.
It is a best practice for…"
Can you post more specs on a glider? Weight by each part and empty weight.
Post more pictures on how ailerons are hinged, servo wells, schematics on how the spars are made. The more details the better.
There are so many nice looking on a small…"
"Well first I agree - FOD and aviation in general not a good mix.
Also, I liked the research done earlier posted here that probability of UAV meeting the Airliner is 1 in 1.8 million years, which I believe is very close to truth.
In 70+ years of RC…"
"I agree, CG could bring some trouble getting it right but, I doubt nose crash will be prettier when batteries on the back would smash all the equipment in front of them.
One can always use battery compartments in the leading edge of the wing to…"
"I wonder what's next? Which channel they will route the media to make general public support this nonsense? A kid built a drone in a basement and it flew-away, crashed over NY City and hurt two people because his drone broke in the air? or an old…"
"I just checked - AMA Membership now is $75 for open membership.
I guess they expect many members to drop and need to cover the losses. Any thoughts why do we need AMA Membership when it will be legal to fly with FAA Registration?"
Your agreement with registration is understandable. But, there is a statistics that speaks - in over 50 years of RC flying how many incidents/collision accidents were between RC planes and full scale?
How many of 700+ incidents reported by…"
