The Wind finally went from 35mph to 10-15 with some occasional 20mph gusts. So I took the advantage of the "little" wind and got enough video for this little Intro to Twistedhobbys' brand new release, the Crack Camel! This video features the Blue scheme. Man this plane is amazing,! Very light, agile, and responsive. It can also be a good trainer when the rates are dialed down, a very smooth feeling, especially with no wind.Thank you Twistedhobbys for all the support and thanks to the Lord for His blessings!

I am running the TMW Twistedhobbys combo, with a 2s 450mah (will probably change to 600mah)

kit and power combo available at Twistedhobbys.com

I purchased a 29% Orange & Black SBach from another pilot. It is in need of a new Cowl and Red Wing no longer carries the replacement. Any Suggestions?

Started with the VQ Pilatus Porter; 107" wingspan, 30cc in the Swiss Alps livery. White & blue. While researching the the plane, I discovered the American built version, the Fairchild AU-23. This plane was used for special operations in Vietnam. The Thai government purchased them from the US and also use them for COIN ops. Their planes were camouflaged in three tone tan, olive and dark green.

I was originally going to make this a 12s electric, then decided on gas.

Major components:

DA-35 with Pitts muffler, Chevron 91 octane and Redline racing oil, 40:1
Savox servos in Ailerons, Flaps and tail.
Hitec servo for throttle
Futaba servo for tail wheel
Sparkbox, Castle 75 ubec pro, Fromeco 5200 lion, Scorpion back-up
Spektrum 9 chreceiver with 2 satellites


Scheme-Royal Thai Air Force
Self-etching primer
Tamiya spray paint
Tamiya Acrylics airbrushed fine tuning cammo
Satin clear

VQ covering accepts paint very well
Well built ARF
Flies great

Some parts ok quality
Tail wheel steering week, changed to having its own servo
Wing strut attachments changed

Scale details added:

Side turbine exhaust

Details to be added:

Pilots, Vulcan gun mount, interior cabin
Retractable landing lights
Wing pylons

I have been asked a few times lately about the proper way to install a servo into your aircraft utilizing the grommets and brass eyelets. A lot of people don't actually know and there isn't much documentation on the proper installation procedure so I am going to detail it here.

It's actually very simple, the grommets only install one way into the servo, it's the brass eyelet that you need to be concerned with. For most standard installations, the servo mounting rails will be installed above the mounting surface. The brass eyelets have a small flange on them, this flange is what needs to face into the mounting surface.

The reason you want the flange in the eyelet to face the mounting surface is so that it does not crush the mounting surface when you tighten the screw down. The wide flange spreads the load out, you always want the flange to face the mounting surface.

When you tighten the screw down, you don't want to crank the screw down. There is 2 reasons for this:

1. You don't want to crush the surface the brass eyelet presses into and possibly compromise the mounting surface.

2. You don't want to strip out the hole the screw threads into.

All you need is for the screw to pinch down on the rubber grommet, this will compress the grommet slightly and force it to squeeze both down onto the brass eyelet and squeeze out onto the servo mounting rails. This is plenty sufficient for both small aircraft all the way up to giant scale airplanes
