Lipo battery cells have a nominal voltage of 3.7 volts per cell.
If a model named a 3 cell (3S) 11.1 volt battery Ė lets just say that is what has to be used.
Capacity indicates how much power the battery pack can hold in milliamp hours (mAh). This is just a fancy way to say how much load or drain (measured in milliamps) can be put on the battery for 1 hour at which time the battery will be fully discharged.
Discharge rate is simply†how fast a battery can be discharged safely.
4.Safety Instruction
Many people ignore the label, the battery was soon broken.
If you need your battery life longer, you must use it as the label says.

I am just dropping off a little blog note here. Some folks that frequent FG love 3D EPP foam planes. Well, you may not have known that Twisted Hobbys has released yet another Cody Wojcik designed 3D masterpiece. The Crack Laser was so popular and well behaved that it became, and still is, a big favorite among Twisted pilots. The new Crack Laser Pro is a Super Lite version and able to be flown indoors and out. You aren't likely to find a more agile and capable plane. With the power combo (includes servos, ESC and motor) you get a plug and play monster. Cody went over all the moments and made all the necessary tweaks so that the performance really shines through for this new super-lite setup. Get the Twisted combo and you have plug and play simplicity AND outstanding performance. It rips. You gotta fly it to believe it. You can let your grandma fly around real slow and then take the transmitter and go off into the most crazy freestyle you can dream up. So, we welcome the magical Crack Laser Pro to the Twisted Hobbys lineup. It's a great plane outdoors when weather permits but, as long as you have an indoor place to fly, you will welcome winter weather with this bird in your arsenal. It's probably the best indoor freestyle/3D plane out there for this coming indoor season.

Here's a short video to show her off

Hello all!
After +17 years, I finally decided to build my Top Flite 84.5Ē P-51B kit. I inventoried the box of parts and all is still in good order.

I stopped flying 15 years ago but have 8 years experience flying RC planes ranging up to 30lb with 9ft spans. I am looking at picking up a cheap mid size tail dragger ARF (80in span~ish) to get my skills back up to par and use it to teach my kids how to fly. At the moment I am getting a copy of my plans made so I donít have to worry about getting them messed up. I already have a sturdy/flat workbench (12ft x 3 ft with 3/4" finished ply on a 2x6 frame) and plan on building the kit over (4ft x 2ft) ceiling tiles from Lowes. I have lots of question;

1. How hard would it be to build this kit to true scale? (What changes need to be made?)
2. How much would the flight characteristic change?
3. At the moment I want to go electric over gas power, you thoughts?
4. I have been a Futaba guy but out of the RC community for the last 15 years. I really like the Taranis X9D Plus (or SE with the Hall gimbals) with all the virtual switch options but donít know if the Taranis brand is trustworthy?
5. I want to use electric retracts but been seeing hit and miss problems with Robarts gear. Options?
6. I eventually want to run a 4-blade prop. Is running 4 blades affordable or worth the investment on this size of a build?

Any help is appreciated.

Here's what they have chosen to inflict upon themselves for the next round ... masochists i'd say. (especially the Swiss .... and the Brits !)

My personal policies for classifieds


#1. DELIVERY TIMES - I can only ship 4 times a week, so PLEASE DON'T PANIC if you don't see your item in 7 days. If I receive payment right after a trip to the PO, you can most certainly add a extra day to the delivery date. Sorry, I have a real life RC is not my business, and that comes first...

#2. SHIPPING METHODS - Unless stated in my posts, I ship small stuff via 1st class and larger stuff via Priority Mail or FedEx. If you have a problem with this, please make this clear in your offer. I will ship anyway you like but I will also pass on the costs to you.

#3. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO SELL TO WHOM I CHOOSE. I will usually work on a first come first serve basis, If you are the "first buyer" to respond to my ad, you will have 12 hours or less to post payment or the sale will fall to the next buyer in line with the same "12 hours or less" rule. This is at my discretion. But I reserve that right in special circumstances. I WILL ALWAYS HONOR MY WORD

#4. I AM WILLING TO TAKE OFFERS, but if you ASK A LOT OF FOOLISH QUESTIONS or HAGGLE, please don't expect to be the first considered just because you were the first to contact me. As soon as somebody says "I'LL TAKE IT", the item is SOLD (pending payment within 24 hours). I certainly don't mind answering questions, but a quick sale is what I'm really looking for.
I absolutely hate haggling, but still feel free to make offers, ya never know...I rarely get my actual asking price, so it does pay off.

#5. FEEDBACK - I may not leave it right away, but I WILL leave it. I tend to have a lot to leave at once so I do it in batches when I can squeeze it in. If you check my feedback, you'll notice I've left a whole lot more than I've received...

#6. RETURNS - Everything is posted "AS IS unless otherwise stated", If you have a problem with something you received from me, Talk to me, ( yelling is a NO NO ) I will do everything possible to correct the situation and / or make you happy. Check My feedback.here and EBAY...

If I make an offer and you accept it, that's a deal. Don't wanna hear "didn't hear back in time" or "somebody else paid first".
Deal is a deal. Check my feedback. I checked yours....

When selling on any site (RC G roups, RC Universe, Flying Giants ETC. ) PLEASE HAVE THE COURTSEY TO MARK ITEM SOLD WHEN SALE IS COMPLETED


#1. I like to trade a LOT. So what?? Why do so many people have a problem with that fact that I just love to have cool stuff in my hands, even if I'll never get to use it. I WISH I could keep it all [/COLOR]

[If you have no feedback and you are new to RC Groups clasified and want sell , or buy from me I may ask you to call me by phone , or I may ask for your number so we can do business together LETS JUST TREAT OTHERS AS WE WANT TO BE TREATED!!

A little touch up on a new Falcon prop
Posted by ricardobowe | 08-26-2017 @ 11:33 PM | 12,201 Views

I have never ever made a Blog before; better yet a build thread. I want to chronicle my build of a Hangar 9 P3 Revolution Biplane in real time and with all of my frustrations.

I recently won the P3 Revolution from an eBay sale and within 5 days the UPS guy delivered a rather large box to my house. A few days before that, I was in my local hobby shop (Graves RC) and they just happened to be selling a spare cowl for the P3 brand new at a slashed price. I could not help but to pick it up.

Now as I started to look online in the Flying Giants forums for the P3 to see what other people experiences were; the news was not good. It was one bad report after another. Mostly fitting issues and CG issues and mostly reporting that the recommended CG made the plane too tail heavy.

There is a forum, but no build thread and scant information on how the plane flies. To complicate matters even further there are two versions of this plane.

Version 1 vs Version 2

Version 1 of the P3 came out and it was a disaster so much so that the plane had to be recalled temporarily. The first 100 according to Horizon Hobby had some serious issues that were resolved in Version 2

So whats the difference between Version 1 vs Version 2? According to Horizon Hobby the first 100 were version 1 and thebest way to tell between Version 1 and version 2 is the cowl. In version 2 the Cowl had no predrilled holes. Also version 2 has some improvements that are not immediately clear.

I have version 2 and this build will be on a Version 2 plane

10 days to go until the nationals ...... here's yesterdays practice session.

3 Cameras, Synced to first wing rock then edited by switching between them along an unadjusted time line. Fairly happy, Just need to watch out for the 1000' minimum altitude, there's a second or two at 900' near the end
