Re: Variable Pitch goes BIG!!

WOW-- now were talkin!!! That last setup and video you posted on your new site sure shows some potential!
At first I thought WTF?!?! a 100 on a 50!!!! But then, thar she goes--It flew!!!
Wonder how much that airframe is gonna take?
One things for sure though, We need to see more with this setup!!!!
It sur needs to be balanced a little better, Looks like it almost had to harrier land it just to bring it in.
Eddie get us some more footage of this setup!!
I want to see a downline and then reversed
Thanks for sharing this with us!

Re: Variable Pitch goes BIG!!

There's a rumour that QQ is designing a plane for this system, any comments Eddie? It seems he was in china recently testing some new planes? Don't know how accurate that info is though, but would love some confirmation. Also, I noticed that the 150cc shafts are shown on the site, is the 150cc version ready?

I just checked the month and date and thought it was posted only few days back. Come to think of it, it was few days ahead. So, I have no idea WTH I was thinking.

I have a bad feeling poor Eddie got stuck with a couple dozen VPP units. I sure hope not, but obviously the idea did not revolutionized 3D. Really sad when a guy has a good idea, implements it well and the market just does not come around.

Looks like Eddie DID suceed!:

Because of the successes of the Variable Pitch Propeller system, new opportunities
Have been presented to us that can not be ignored. Variable Pitch Hobbies is going to shift<O</O
%100 to UAV variable pitch and custom aluminum propellers… We are a small group<O</O
and even though the DA100 VPP system works great, we are choosing to concentrate <O</O
on larger UAV work.<O</O
<O</O

I meet a lot of great guys while I was flying the VPP and want to thank Flying Giants for all<O</O
There support. <O</O
<O</O

Thanks Again..<O</O
<O</O

Eddie Weeks<O</O
<O</O

Btw… I am selling all the parts and drawing for the hobby size engines (DA100, DA150, 3W157, Hacker A150)<O</O
