So I’ve been flying my home built foam plane a couple of times the last few days but it didn’t turn out that well. Oh the plane flies but I think the body isn’t stiff enough because it is twising around its own roll axis. This behaviour made it really hard to fly since the rudder input I made had to twist the body back before the actual turn started…if you know what I mean. It was like the body not stiff enough added some serious lag to my roll inputs. And yes, I went pretty hard down into the ground…:( But all the electronics are still ok but this plane has to be seen as a prototype. I wont fly this one any more so all the electronics are now removed from the plane. If I find myself some depron or something similar I will try this plane again but until then I’m thinking of buying a Multiplex Easy Star.
I have made some research on the Easy Star on the Internet and it seems like the Easy Star is a pretty good plane for a beginner. It is durable, self stabilizing and not to expensive, just the one I’m looking for. I’m going for the plane only since I already have all the electronics.
Also been surfing the Internet looking at r/c helis but I haven’t found the one I’m looking for yet. Or more precisely, I haven’t decided yet which one I should go for. My ESky Lama V3 has taken a few more heavy crashes and now it has started to sound a bit funny. I don’t know if it is the motor or if it is the gears…but it is still flying. It feels like I’m ready for a more advanced r/c heli. Not an ADVANCED but a instep model for 6ch ccpm. In the post before this one I listed a few examples of helis I am looking at. Maybe I should add a T-REX 450S?
Anyway, in order to get a heli I have to get a new r/c radio…
