Nice flight Kevin, but beyond the attention span of the content. Try a 2 minute limit - just pick out the best bits and grab attention and hold it. If you repeat pirouettes then vary the speed on each one. Try a canon attack swoop close to the camera as well as some distant stuff.

You can do it I know and it could make a fascinating 2 minutes.

Tom.

P.S. Sorry to sound like a teacher, I have had a lot of practice. Smile

-40ºC that's colder than cold, it got down to -2ºC going over the mountains in January/February this year few if any vehicles on the road makes for an easy hassle free steady drive at night. Where I am 50 foot above sea-level and 100 yards from the high tide line, didn't get much lower than 0ºC if at all.

Good long flight there Kevin, must be handy having a flight engineer when doing night flights.

ya, its not much fun flying alone Burgess. I am pleased with the way that heli turned out. I forgot my stopwatch, so the wife kept the time. when I got home all 4 batteries were in the 380-385 storage range. Smile I can now accurately gestimate each battery size and heli setup flight time by heart.

Re. Videos:
Best tip I ever had when performing/filming for the public was "Always leave them wanting more - NEVER milk it for all you can get!" Works well in conversation too.

Just a hint from an oldster.

Now that I have access to a spray booth and spray equipment I will probably build a 1973? Midwest P-40 War hawk control line stunt plane with a Fox 35. I had one when I was a kid. With a 48" wingspan its small to fit into my car. Of course it will be the nicest one ever built. http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Midwest-Profile-Warbird-Plans-48-P-40-Warhawk-for-29-to-40-/162457539030?hash=item25d33951d6

I'm fine Kevin - bit lonely at times though, been over a year now since the wife moved countries and no sign of a buyer for the house.

That's a crafty add for the plans that you are thinking of. Looks like they're selling a kit but it's only the plan, and that doesn't even show the rib profiles.

Have you tried a search (stupid question I know) but it is amazing what you can find. There are many free plans available for download. Does require pasting several sheets of A4 together (unless you have an A2 printer & paper).

Tom.

Kevin stick a receiver and servos in it and fly free.

I'm part way through doing an almost ready to fly a Piper Cub J-3 (six -foot span) for a friend.



Also acquired another Walkera Dragonfly 36B to the right of the bey window, that makes 5 36B.

Nice Burgess. Go big or go home lol. I love my Big Lama's, but the 2 biggest complaints is they cant handle the wind, and the time it takes to charge the batteries. I do have a foam hawk sky rc trainer plane, but I want to avoid switching back and forth from rc heli to rc plane. It will ruin or confuse my reflexes on the Tx, causing a crash.

Doesn't seem to happen that way Kevin, I find when I switch models I switch reflexes. Only problems I get is on 'Mobile Phone Sims' as their controllers are thumbs on images and I'm a pincher on a real controller. Just can't get used to it at all. However, it will give me something to play with on the plane later. As far as mobiles go I'm Sir Crashalottte.

Key pads
QWERTY for alphabet layout

phone key pad
123
456
789
0
calculator key pad
789
456
123
0

WHY is this

Are you sitting comfortably? Smile . . . . Then I'll begin!

In the old days calculators were mechanical and the numbers placed for operator convenience. This pattern was continued in digital calculators, so that the operators did not have to learn a new layout. (Check on 1930 onwards adding machines.)

The old 'rotating dial' telephones produced a number of pulses relative to the number. The odd one out was '0' as it was impossible to pass a zero pulse, therefore, it was made '10' and so had to follow '9'. When digital phones arrived the alphabet required pulses in ascending order, so the '123' 'ABC' etc was at the top, following the telephone numerical practise. the '0' still produces a '10' and follows '9'.

Further information available on request. Cool

Tom.
