Nice job! I see you removed the material to allow the ailerons to travel to their limit, very well done.

I just received mine last night but I also received the new gear for the Freya so I worked on that and the EVO. I found cracks in the main frames on the EVO so it's a total rebuild on that one. Luckily I ordered frame halves on Monday along with a couple of other spares but they haven't arrived yet.

Good work on the foamy. I had been reading the thread on RCU on the build up of these things. I might leave the landing gear off of mine, I think they were why Joes tiped over last weekend. I think I'd be better off hand launching and belly landing it.

Thank you
Thank you.

I just got the HS 56 Servo's today and finished her up. The servos are fantastic for the plane...plenty of torque and speed and not to mention the holding power. I am glad Tim helped me on this. I am waiting till the Sun comes up and I am going to take her for a spin.

I think I may also order the Yak kit also after I see how she flies today.

I am still awaiting for the SE to show up. I will have to chase the mail lady down this morning.

We will putting Joe's plane together tonight.

Don, I think you are going to enjoy this little stiffy Also we got the radio figured out...I love this radio even more..it has so much to offer for the price. We enabled Flaps on the software and works like a champ

I'll be over to steal your configuration off the radio. I'll start putting the Yak together tonight. I have some Gorilla glue coming in today from McMaster that I plan on using for the build per a conversation I had with Tim. By the time I'm ready, I'm sure you'll be done with the ballancer on Joes. I ordered a couple of extra 1800 batteries, seems the TP 2100's I have aren't a good match.

Hows the CG on yours, did it ballance out ok with the battery where it is?

The CG took some time to play with...have no idea why something so simple would take so much time.

Where I have the battery she is perfect. Gotta get here out and see though.

I will report back later once I get out of here.

I'm not sure but I'd check the Vo-Tech field first since it's the closest.

Bringing Da Stiffy out to play? It took me way too long but I finally got the electronics and radio figured out with Marks help. I'm getting read to start building the fuse now. I won't be working on it over night like some people I know would!

Yes I will bring my Stiffy. I have to drop off my daughter @ 10:30 and should arrive @ 11:00 @ the school I will have the little one though and will have to take some breaks in between.

You can fly in the snow

Well I got out until it started to snow. Damn cold but no real wind so it wasn't painfull!

Got to take the Freya up for another test flight with the Quick UK gear as well as a re-indicated fan and clutch shaft.

The tail is still giving me fits but I've got most of it tuned out by playing with the needles. I think I'll try 30% and see what that does for it.

Well my Stiffy YAK is finished! Seems to have plenty of pulling power! I've got the TP 2100's on there Who said they wouldn't work?

A question for Mark. I've read about conditioning Lipo's. Since these packs are new do I need to do to condition them?

The S75's. They seem to be holding well enough. I'll know better when I get it next to Marks with the Hitech's and compare the two.

Condtioning
It appears to be different with everybody. Some say yes & some say no. Go ahead and do it.

Hold the plane and run the throttle for 5 minutes straight not full throttle then recharge the battery. Do this 5 or 6 times for each pack. You can also do this when you fly.


What you are trying to avoid is excessive run times and no full throttle constantly. Please do not allow the plane to take off in your Basement & keeps your hands away from the prop.

Please take some pictures and post them.

Using the s75 you save quite a bit of weight. I like my Hs56 though tough as nails.

Very small basement. You've seen my house, the basement is only 2/3 of that.

Open you garage door and fly it out there!

I'm wondering where I can go with the YAK. I'm thinking a mall parking lot since there's no one out today

Hahahahaha....

We went out anyway!!!!

Landing in 18" of snow isn't so bad, it's the walk through it to fet your plane that sucked.

I learned that being a novice at this plank stuff I shouldn't have built it up with maximum throws on every surface without adding any expo or dual rate at all. Can you say "Take off directly into out of control"?

I was doing fine until the trees got in the way. Luckily it managed to bump it's way through the branches all the way to the ground. Amazing as well is the fact that 30 minute epoxy is all I need to get it in the air again!

This is fun!

Trex SE First couple of flights.
I had a little accident in the garage last night. Installed a new flybar and blades and stuck my R770 PCM in there. The DX6 sucks for CCMP mixing...waste.


Joe was not convinced until he came over today to watch it fly across the street...he is placing his order also. This thing makes my gasser look sad and tracks extremely well in flight and don't forget about the winds were high today. I am very impressed!!! The cost/time factor reminds of the Stiffy's we have. Looks as I will be selling most of the fleet except for a couple nitro's.

Mark,

I was impressed with it .... it was reminiscent of my old Raptor 30 ....very nimble and precise. Nice flying in that wind, my heart was beating pretty good and I wasn't even behind the sticks. I can't wait to get mine.....Soon.

(Stay out of that garage)
