Wet field

Went to the field in the forlorn hope of someone being there.. not to be.

FIELD SECURITY .... The gate padlock issue seems to have been resolved with 'farmers' twine' !! This is now the only security & whoever has done the job has been to …

Straight lines! Thats were its at!

Post by Mark Barnes on Thu Jan 06, 2011 6:53 pm

Those that know me well will know ive got a soft spot for F3A style planes, I just love the look. However the budget wont stretch to a full composite 2x2 machine.

So with a chance visit to Webbies over the xmas break, saw me buy a mini F3A, Namley a Kyosho Oxalys 50EP for a very cheep price (well worth looking on the specials board when you go in this was 60 quid off RRP). I belive this will help me tidy up my flying more as it wont 3D so the theroy is i wont be pratting about near the floor

Build will begin shortly but for now the specs will be

Motor: Thumper 4260
ESC: Tornado 80amp
Lipos: 5s1p 4800mah and 2s1p 1000mah for RX
Servos: Specki DS821 digi all round

Im aiming for about 1.1Kw

If its good enough for CPLR imagine the mess i can make of it

I still don't understand why F3a models are obliged to have Noddy paintjobs on them.....

Ive now recived all my goodies for this :

3mm Ball links and pink hex head servo screws from model fixings
Specki 821 digi servos from Leeds MS
AR7000 RX from stock
Motor Thumper 4260 and 80amp ESC from Overlander
and various other odds and sods.

I can now crack on with the build but alas this morning I realised that the Comp I was intending using this plane for, The Sebart Cup (an event running along side the F3A World Cup) is on the same weekend as the wifes birthday so its unlikly I can go, GUTTED!

The build on this has progressed well nipping in oud out of my drafty garage.

All thats left to do is the pull pull on the rudder, sort out the ball links on the rest, some fancy cooling holes on the cowl and drill out my spinner for the hooge electric prop adaptor
