Needing all the information and help. I can get about setting up a 30% Edge 540 PAU Leaning towards a DL55 or a DA50 for power , Hitec 5645MG on elevators and ailerons, 645 ganged on pull-pull for the rudder to cut down on current draw, 4.8 volt 1600ma on ignition ,with two 6 volt batteries of at least 2000ma for the receiver and probably a 42% battery share device on seperate switches for each battery, also an opti-kill switch. But I am open to any and all suggestions to set this up properly for enjoyable flying thanks 1rookie

Last weekend I finished up all the little bits on the EZ Star UAV and headed for the field late Sunday. The wind had died down to nothing, which is not that common for spring in DFW.

I performed the maiden without the camera so I wouldn't risk a few hundred bucks extra on the plane

It flew just about perfectly, but it was slightly tail heavy due to the layout I had selected. Once I landed and installed the camera, TX, and battery however, it was perfect. Here's some pictures.

Me and my silly mug



Very basic base station setup... it's going to change a lot before the Airsoft event this thing was made for



And a couple of in-flight pics

Flyby


Flaps down for landing


So far it's a success. The event is coming up in two weeks, so we'll see how it goes! I think I'll modify one of the Wild Hawk kits I have for a backup airframe, just in case. Don't want to risk it all on one plane!<object width="425" height="344">

</object>I took off again with my base station on, and got a couple of minutes of video. Here's the results... I didn't have a way to directly record from the receiver, so we had to film my monitor. We'll have better quality next time!

I recently crashed my WildHare Edge 540 (28%) and am looking to replace it with a 50 cc Yak. To keep the cost down, I am looking at either the AK Models (Rich Models) Yak 54 or the 50 cc RC League Yak 54. Both are priced about the same and come standard with CF tubes and landing gear. Any advise on which one is a better plane? For what it's worth, I'm not looking for something to do 3D with as I typically just enjoy flying around. Also worth pointing out is I have a Zenoah G62 that survived the crash and I would like to stick it on whatever I buy.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jr

Hi , my engine is a 102, the originally exit mufflers tubes were short on my round YAK cowling in order to exit enouhgt the cowling (they were inclined to the center of the engine). I replace the tubes with a 1/32 bigger the inside diameter and 1 3/4 " longer and keeped them incline to use the same exit hole in the cowling. the engine dropped from 6.400 to 6.000. The longer tubes have something to do with the lower RPM??

also I switch from 26-10 bolly to 26-10 Xoar both woods.
Following is a picture with the old tubes
best regards and thanks for your time

The UAV is almost done! All I have left is finishing the radio equipment installations, touch up the paint, and install the camera.

The camera is a KX191 and it has excellent quality. I think it's going to work well... Sunday should tell the tale though (maiden).

I squared off all the girly edges of the Easy Star, enlarged the rudder, and added ailerons to the wing (which will also act as flaps and spoilers). It looks nice! I'm using a Grayson Super Sonic V2 for power, which should be decent. Still haven't decided on gyros yet, but if I use them it will probably be yaw and roll.

Anyways, another update once it has flown!

Hi All!

I'm about to embark on a Giant Scale Project -
Convair 440 Kit - from Don Smith Plans.
Already met two friends - B.B. and Chip, in different states doing the same thing. B.B. has built and flown his - and Chip is on the way in building process. Are there any others that are, or have built this particular Model? Would really enjoy hearing from you about your experiences.
Jack
