Re: Variable Pitch goes BIG!!

Alright, the gig's up! Happy April Fool's day all! I cannot tell a lie, our homepage article was a bunch of bunk all the way around. Yeah, yeah yeah, I know, definately not as witty as last year's stunt (translating the homepage to Japanese), but fun nonetheless!

I would like to thank Sleepyc for the amazing photoshop work, Toro for his creative essay about nada, and the rest of you guys who kept this fun!

So now the question is, who wins this year's "hook, line, and sinker" award?

Greets!

MD

Re: Variable Pitch goes BIG!!

are they gonna come out with hollow shaft glow motors to support these??? I think you should set it up with a swash plate and ccpm. that would give you collective and you could mix in thrust vectoring...... then maybe an inverted torque roll could be controlled...... I think it would be "Hucking sweet"

I hear ya!! I wouldn't be surprised if someone actually did pull this off. It won't be long. Does anybody remember the name of the guy who got it to kinda work with the UCD last year? I remember the video, it was absolutely priceless. If you're out there, please come say what's up!

..If you guys were just able to hear Toro and I on the phone last night, and some of the other ideas we had. LOL! Plan B was to turn the site into an RC Truck forum..

Re: Variable Pitch goes BIG!!

I built one of these things... Its works ok.. Can't get the plane to back up
in the air because of the inefficent prop, but it backs up on the ground
and stops the plane cold during forward flight..

I was going to sell them but I don't think there would be much demand.

What do you think..
