I tried pretty hard to hide as much wiring as possible this time, but the damn 401 and 9254 leads are sooooo long!!
Gonna have to get me a servo shortening kit, dont like the idea of cutting them and soldering the leads back together.
I hate big blobs of wiring!
Anyway, so I flew her tonight in the warehouse at work.
Rangecheck was a bit short at about 12 meters, but we are surrounded by steel product and wireless RF units....
She felt very sensitive even with 30% expo, but its got much more cyclic travel now, plus the 6v plus the lighter paddles are back on.
Paddles are mostly for visibility for me, as they stand out like dogs bollocks
Im getting some very minor glitching on cyclic, just a very brief quick right hand twitch every now and then.
No real loss of control, but unnerving.
I also got my tail linkage the wrong length lol (I knew this would happen
) so Ive got a low frequency mild wag going on.
So the glitching, wagging and sensitivity is not making me exude 3d confidence right now lol.
I weighed it tonight......FAT PIGGY!! 1800g
Thats ready to fly with all batteries aboard and glass canopy.
Needs a diet, but really I can only change the canopy and main batteries.
I cant afford new batteries and I like the glass canopy, so FAT she will be lol.
Im thinking this will actually be a plus around here, as we always get a strong afternoon sea breeze.
So weight will help in the stronger winds.
A friend took some video and stills of the QJ in flight tonight, so as soon as he gets that back to me I will post what I can.
Just hovering about getting a feel for it, and sussing out that glitch.
For the love of the hobby
