Reply with quote

Well it was a gloomy, foggy morning, but decided to take both Big Lama cam ships out to the park. Both did well. Ship #2 needs a bit of taming to smooth it out a tad more, but fly's well. Got home and decided since I had another pack charged I’d fly ship#1 at my home filled before the morning winds came up. It handles very nicely with the Durablades or Walkera blades both. I basically only use the stock blades anymore on the E500. Ship # 1 has had a bout 5 flights now with the same set of Durablades and seems to be doing well with no signs of fatigue or anything. I only have 4 or 5 sets, but plenty of the Walkera type ones. I may try a set of the Durablades on the E500 just to see. CNC swash is great as the balls don't wear down and the ball links don't get sloppy. Nothing special, just a foggy Sunday morning flight(s) in a slight breeze. Video is in in HD (720p) and best viewed in YouTube. Feel free to stop by our public Big Lama Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/ESkyBigLamaPage

I went out for a Sunday flight as well but mine had a slight problem. I slung off one of the weights on the flybar. The black plastic part came off and things got bumpy. The brass piece somehow stayed in place till it landed. Only had to drop about 4-5 ft. If it had happened a minute earlier when I was at about 40 ft. It wouldn't have turned out so well. My first Lama fell about 60 ft and that was the end of it. Its now an organ donor. I'll use the flybar from it. Good day all.

I tried this morning but 1/2 hour after dawn it was topping 41ºC (106ºF) and the flies were already biting. Hard to concentrate so I gave up and restrung my 12 string guitar. Love that sound! Cool

Howdy all. Got to thinking about the Tx and the Rx from my organ donor lama. Can the Rx and Tx be used in a plane? All it needs is 4 channels. Rudder, ail, elev, thro. Just wondering.

Should be no problem there Tom. Try plugging the servos into it on the bench to test first, but I don't see any reason for it not to work.
