Cody Wojcik does it yet again with his newest release and first ever SuperLite series design, the Crack Laser Pro! This plane is by far one of the best Superlite foamie 3d planes on the market. It tracks like it's on rails, has extreme throws, and plenty of power with the recommended power combo. It is a definite must have for the best indoor 3d performance! Thank you TwistedHobbys for the support and thanks to the Lord for His blessings!

Plane and power combo available at TwistedHobbys.com

Enjoy the video!

I've had this airplane for about 2 years now and have grown very fond of it. I've made probably a dozen different changes to its internals to better its performance or improve upon other areas that were not assembled correctly. It has taught me how to really fly 3D with larger airplanes and as such, I refuse to let it die.

I've also managed to crash it probably half a dozen times

I've been fortunate enough to have crashed it in manners where it is rebuildable. This time, I had what I am certain is the engine overheating on me right at the worst possible moment- at the bottom of a waterfall. As I punched full throttle to climb back out the engine decided it had enough and dropped back on me. Truth be told I probably should not have been flying in 95F heat with 95% humidity, everybody was having power loss issues. If you're gonna play with fire you're bound to get burnt at some point.

This blog will document the repairs and changes I make to the airplane from this particular incident. This is what the airplane looked like the day I brought it home. It had roughly 15 flights on it so it was fairly new.



A club member happened to be filming the flight:

Remote control Airplane 107" Stunt Flying and Fail 7-8-2017 (4 min 21 sec)


I know the engine sounds a bit unhealthy but it has ran like this as long as I've owned it. It's really worn out compared to my new DA120.

I got this plane a while back and it turned out to be a real "head turner." The Edge is equipped with a DA-70 Twin and MKS-777 servos all around.

The plane is new in every respect and has been flown twice to check the CG. It is for sale to a serious flyer.

How to choose the best battery for quadcopter?

Before choosing the battery for your quadcopter, you should know about the flight times, C-rate, Capacity, Average Amp Draw, brands and price of the battery.

For example,

Flight time =(Battery Capacity * Battery Discharge /Average Amp Draw)*60

For calculate your quadcopter flight time, you have to know three factors: Battery Capacity , Battery Discharge and Average Amp Draw

It's a complex process that I high recommend this detail article about How to choose the best battery for quadcopter, After reading it, you will know how to do.

How to keep your drone flying continuously?

There is actually a ton of ways to extend the battery life of your drone without having to insert a new battery unless that's your plan. However, if you want some other options to try, we’ve got them.

  1. Knowing when to charge the battery
  2. Keep an extra battery
  3. Check the weather before you go
  4. Remove your camera
  5. Remove the prop guards
  6. Don’t destroy your battery
  7. The proper voltage

Extending your flight time is easy as pie, and there is a ton of ways to do so. Knowing how to extend the flight time to the full extent of your drone is solely based on your drone, so knowing your drone is very important.

Hope everyone is doing well. Crack Yak time. Fun little design that never gets old. Super fun and extremely durable. Great for flying in the yard in the summertime or whenever. I did a little customization of my trim scheme. No editing really. It is what it is. Hope you enjoy. Have fun and "Stay Twisted My Friends"

4. Current draw.

5. Response.

6. Props.

7. Vibration.

8. Temperature.

9. Type of magnet.

10. The shaft.

Therefore, What's the best brushless motor for quadcopter? Brushless motors are typically 85–90% efficient or more, higher efficiencies for a brushless electric motor, of up to 96.5%, whereas DC motors with brushgear are typically 75–80% efficient.

Brushless motors are great for several reasons:

1. They have very high power density (in terms of size and weight)

They’re incredibly efficient so they generate very little heat,no wear or contact items (such as brushes) and can spin incredibly fast.

2. It’s very easy to control their speed precisely and adjust it quickly

Power density is incredibly important because on anything that’s flying you want to do everything you can to minimize weight.

3. They’re inexpensive to manufacture

Nobody complains when components are inexpensive.

I plan on flying my planes at the RC flying field on Sunday. It's a long story but June 4th is a special day on many counts.

I first dreamt of RC flying as a kid. My dad had an old RC plane engine in his workshop and every once in a while he'd put it in the bench vice and we'd run it just because. We never had or flew planes but it was enough to plant a seed in my mind.

Later in life Dad bought a trainer plane for himself, determined to eventually learn. It was built and taxied around the lawn but sadly he passed before it ever took to the skies. I wasn't around to be a part of this.

Fast forward several more years and I took up the hobby. At first, it was just as a way to finish something he started, but I immediately loved it and have been flying RC planes for many years now.

I bought my first giant scale plane in early 2010 and toiled over the details. It was a Hanger 9 Sundowner F1 with a DLE 30cc engine. I could not get it to fly. I had electronics issues, engine issues, etc. On one failed attempt I damaged it while unloading it at the field.

Until June 4th 2010. June 4th is my dads birthday, I was taking the Sundowner to the field and had literally cried that morning asking dad that if he could see me to help get this plane in the air for his birthday.

At the field, that DLE engine fired right up, the plane taxied and took off without hesitation. I flew several times that day without incident (barring tears) and even have a video of it somewhere.

Months later when my sister Anne was visiting, the Sundowner airframe became a casualty of my poor flying skills when an engine stall during takeoff caused too much damage to repair. Amazingly, that very same DLE engine still flies and is in my SBach 342 airframe.

So on Sunday, I'll be flying my RC planes for my dads birthday; for the memory of that first giant scale flight; and for of all those memories of silly things like running a glow engine in a bench vice.

I completed the build and got to maiden the Giles. What a great flying plane.
I want to say thank you to my brother for an amazing airplane. The plane flew great with no surprise and had plenty of power to spare.

Well, we made the trek and managed to get some video organized into a 5 minute Joe Nall epic summary sort of thing. I hope you enjoy the Fun, Fellowship and Hospitality of Triple Tree someday if you already have not. It is a beautiful place with great people and there is just tons of awesomeness going on. You gotta see it to believe it.

Get your 5 minutes worth of popcorn ready cuz here we go... God bless y'all
