Re: Question, and only a question!

Until we get Transponders or GPS tracking on airframes, this conversation is a waste of cyberspace. The airplane that crosses the finish line first wins under NMPRA /AMA rules. It's a race of distance, not time(?). As long as you have a human pushing a button, the .5 second marinates in. Racers will...

Re: Q40 landing techniques (to avoid landing into other planes)

Dual rates on the throttle stick....hum....that's a good idea. Will the DX9 programming do that? I thought about putting the fuel cut off on high rate flight mode. That would kill the power when selected, and prevent you from taking off in high rates. On the throttle stick would do that too..and be ...

Re: Q40 landing techniques (to avoid landing into other planes)

I have come full circle on this, I use to try to get rid of the airspeed. The last few races and practice sessions, I have found that I have better rudder authority if I carry some speed, and do a “wheeled” landing. I then use down elevator and keep the tail flying longer. You have more rudder autho...

Re: Your latest creation

Thanks Kurt!
Yes, he is a gem. He is two years old this month. The neighbors dogs produced a litter of 13 pups. My wife said "lets just go look at them" :D .
He has a great disposition....other than fact he likes to chase foam airplanes!

Re: Your latest creation

OK...I know it's not a pylon racer, but it is my own design, the DYDSuperYAK. 9mm EPP, 3s, 1450 KV. Hovers at half stick. Great for keeping the thumbs current! I got tired of the silly foam wheel pants that come with some of the kits. Wanting to test some new tooling resin, I carved a set of micro w...
