Something I have never done before!!!
You know I am a huge DA fan.
All my motors are DA
da 35, 50, 60 X2, 70, 85, 120, 150L, 170 X2, 200 X2
well, this is a China motor, called KCS 62 cc
I won the motor, but they want me to report on its performance.
SO far, after 3 flights, the muffler is cracked.
the 2nd test:
Something i never do!
I mean never,!! All my servos are JR or Futaba or MKS, a few Hitec.
Well, on this airplane, I am testing a super low price servos.
these are called BlueBird! 48 dollars a piece!
These are HV servos, aluminum case 100%, no plastic'
and gears are titanium
SO far, I refer to them as low cost and not cheap!
Time will tell if they are cheap!
the last thing I am testing!!!
I used the following glue for hinge points and control horns!:
White Gorilla Glue!
Anyone ever use this before?
Anything bad with the white?
Is it weaker?
I do not know the answer, so I am testing it out.,
I have always used the regular color, looks like honey when in liquid form.
I always use white GG. It is like they made the bottle just for hinging as the tip fits right into the hinge holes.
