Gate post broken

Sun Aug 27, 2017 8:42 pm by Gary M Jones

Just in case anyone is not aware, the main gate post at the field entrance is broken at its base just at ground level. ( the bolt side post) The post is only supported by the fencing attached to it. If the fencing fails then the post will fall and …

What model?

Post by Marty on Sun Apr 11, 2010 8:12 pm

This post is to gather ideas.
I tried to fly my Easy glider pro today but the field behind my house, the wind was abot 10 knots and was producing really turbulent air and the easy glider was flying really erratically, so, in addition to trying to come up with a PSS model I think I will also need a model that will handle bumbpy a ride.
The only stipulation is I'd like the model to be electric.
Any ideas?

Have you thought about one of the small semi scale foamy combats. They are great fun, fly on a 3 cell 1000ma lipo and are cheap.
I have one that lives in the car ready for instant action.

You got it in one. I get around 8 minutes per battery and they can be flown in quite small areas. Wind is not a problem, within reason that is.

Yeah, A little foamy is great fun just to chuck about the sky!
I think you saw my one the 'breeze' which I brought along.
I have over powered it quite alot but thats good as I usualy fly in quite strong winds (for its size)

I didn't realise the Breeze was a foamy, what motor did you put in it and what kind of strenth wind will it manage?

I have THIS with a 25A esc. it will handle about 10-12mph with a 1000mah 3 cell, but I have been flying in these gale winds with a 30c 2100mah (3cell), but obviously, it wasn't very good and the rubber bands that hold the wings on nearly snapped!
I would say it would take up to about 15mph sensibly with the 2100mah then anything over and you are going a bit extreme
