Very nice Matt. I see that you have the essentials at home as well - big screen, music and big speakers.

Awesome.
Cheers

Tauranga Airshow
Gents,

I went to the Airshow last weekend as part of the Jet club. We put on a flying demo on Sunday and the show was great.

The highlights for me were the Spitfires and the Hawker Hunter.

Here's some photos - lots of pictures of the Corsair especially for Cheye:

Off to Tokoroa for a jet event this weekend. Anyone can come along for a nosey - the best day for flying/watching will be Saturday but there are some guys there already today.

Cheers,

Steve Engle

Dam straight Allen, what's the point of listening to music if you can't hear it?

Matt.

Put a HW Brushless motor and esc in my 1/10 scale Tamiya rc car.
Running a 3s LiPo makes for a quick little car. Lacked front grip so I cut down an old 700mm main blade and made a front wing. Works great.

However on dirt or gravel it became almost un-driveable..

...So I thought Id try something...

..All I can say is 'stiks like s**t to a blanket!!....

It only seems to work on rate mode....gets bad wobbles on HH....But I can nail it full speed into a turn and all it does is run wide when the grip runs out....same deal on gravel...I usually cant 'gun it' up my gravel drive, it would just spin out, but with the gyro...a shower of dirt and stones as it just skips, dead straight, up the driveway...

Why fly RC helis? Because Rugby, Soccer and Golf only require 1 ball...

6HV motor shaft and case
Hey Magnazan,
I found this comment on HF re the shaft and motor can on the 6HV, thought it might help you.

I ordered my 6HV from RC711 a year ago. I were first missing the main gear but RC711 "didn't understand" what I meant. Had to take pictures (WTF?) of the missing parts. Had to find the partnumber on Nankin's page and email them but still they were acting like idiots and didn't send me the main gear. I were fed up since i had to buy a new assembly to around 100 bucks. I then sent Luke @ Compass an email and he sent me by DHL from China to Norway and I had it 3 days later.

Next issue I had were the motor shaft loosening from outer body of the motor. Sent RC711 a mail but they didnt even respond. Same procedure, sent Luke a message. 3 days later a new motor were in my mail box.

Superb help from Compass, miserable from RC711.....

Question - wtf is Luke.
