hehe would need some large speakers with all the engine noise.

the only paint is in the engine bay to protect the wood. all the rest is 'oracover' foil that you can iron on (glues on at 60

nooooooo

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

you gonna reinforce it with some thin plywood on the insides or what's your plan? i've never really broke the fuselage in half like that mostly the tail broke when i used to crash land. those can be a pain in the but to fix but cheaper maybe as there is less material.

anyway the damage looks not so bad from here in your case. it should work if you strenghten it up a bit from the inside i think. hope to see you up in the skies in no time smile

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

yes, just got me some wood, more glue and cover foil for when i'm done.
need to trim the last piece of original wood a milimeter since the fit isn't as exact as before.. the wings still fit so it should be ok.
it should be back in the air tomorrow! big_smile

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

you should try and get some video of that thing in flight! (and post it!)

worship the potentiometer.

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

it's all back in one piece!!
servo's work, tomorrow check the engine, range of receiver and then put it back into the sky!

also going to check a 2nd hand sports plane tomorrow big_smile

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

no video - 7.5cc engine is bust sad
but i got my hands on another engine that needs a new screw-thread to hold the carb. going to our mechanic at work tomorrow to drill it out a little and put in bigger screws.. then put that on the plane and hopefully fly again.

i'll post a pic of my new plane latoR smile it has a pilot figure with moustache!
that one still needs a receiver and proper setting-up before it can go up. plus a short lesson on the ins and outs of flying it.

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

yep, i am smile the rudder/aileron/elevator surfaces are about 4 times bigger; setting up all push/pull rods and servo's to minimal so it will be more controllable. the previous owner had it set up for 3d/acrobatic flying so everything to the max.

got another engine (6.5cc) on the purple calmato today and it flew again! had to trim it a lot cause it ain't as straight as before hehe.
only i forgot to bring the camera...

And the power.

In the manual it says that it does speeds in excess of 100mph.
I don't know if that is true but it is fast as hell...



Oh yeah... Filming and flying is not easy.

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

looks great smile
saw a small EP jet on the field today which sounded exactly like a mosquito.. hehe.

the good news: got to fly the graupner first time today big_smile

and it flew like a dream! very stable and responsive plus the engine ran great.

a bit of flying by Roel with his calmato sport:

the bad news: one of my two elevator servo's died when i was in a roll heading staight down.. when giving some up to get out of it, only one half of the elevators reacted so it kept on going down, only slightly turning out of the roll. i managed to turn it so it was horizontally at

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

Lucky... That could have been a horrible crash. 

Ya. The duct fan jets don't sound as cool as the real jets. I wish i had one.

BTW. Some Danes have put a real jet in a twister.

It's quite windy today so i'm gonna go fly my glider.
