    I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

    yes Oggie, I know what FPV stands for, it was because you can't fly properly so I have a chance, you can't qualify so I win or at least finish better than you Very Happy

    That a no then lol

    I did wonder about trying a cc3d on a wing last year but never got roumd to it. Have you done it before Og? Stability seems wrong on a wing or plane. Although saying that i do fancy trying a graup er 3g rx at some point

    No mate not tried it before but think I might just leave it for now to keep it simple
    Is that rx the one that can do quads instead of a flight controller?

    I say crack on Oggie. If you want a cc3d on yours, I don't mind. The only rule is that we stick to 18xx motors, and 5 inch dia props max.

    I'm not going to fit one on mine, No room. Plus I've run out of carpet glue for sticking stuff down with.

    I don't like it. It doesn't make my eyes go funny when I use it, and it dries so you can't see it. Carpet glue smells muuuuuch stronger, and dries like a snot trail....

    think I may have messed up on the battery purchase... I got 800's but only when they arrived did I see they were 40-50c discharge... would the ESC handle that?????????

    yes, its the battery that's "C" rated not the esc, the esc can deliver what it says in the specs, if you put the wrong motor/prop combination on and draw more amps than the esc can deliver then the esc will fail

    Andy - Rich is completely wrong - those batteries will fry your esc and motor in the hornet.
    Your only option is to dispose of them safely and legitimately- I'll take em off your hands - no charge.

    Maidened my wing today in the underground. Went well, cg at the manual position is about right you need more throw than I expected, which would suggest the cg can go back a bit. Plenty of power, and surprisingly robust.

    I turns out there isn't enough room to fly it in the underground.. they are going to be a eight laugh outdoors though. Probably a case of peg the throttle wide open, and try not to hit anything!

    Carpet glue. and them some foaming pu glue, because the carpet glue was far too tidy to be in keeping with the rest of the build...
