FT What Did You Do RC Today : Caution Offtopic At All Times

Finished the Kraken templates and marked about half the foamboard. Should be getting it together in the next 2 or 3 days. I have some LED light strips to put in her. Time to try a little night flying. :cool:
 
I agree! Looks like tons of fun!

I watched it rain all weekend. Sigh. Going to have to sneak some flights in after work, we're gone next weekend and then the holidays start ramping up. Weekends are scare between now and the New Year and there is no way I can wait that long to fly again!

I do have a radicalrc mini stick showing up today, unless it's damaged again. At least I'll get to do something RC!
It was definitely a great day! Not too many of those left in the next 2 months or so. That Mini stick should be a fun project though!

Cool that you have indoor. What do you fly indoors?

Well crap! I was thinking about getting my Father one of these for Christmas to learn to fly on.

That's not a bad idea, Bricks. May have to look into that. Also thinking about getting a cover for our pickup. I could build a rack and have room for at least most of the fleet!

Those nnChuck gliders were a big hit. The stang flies the best for sure. kids loved them and they don't take long to cut and build. Thanks Nerdnic!

Piddled with the Kraken some. Built the power pods and nacelles as well as routing the power distribution cable. There are less than 2 hours of work left including the landing gear.

Also got around to doing an autopsy on my failed servo/extension set. The servo was good but one of the extensions was found to have a short causing the failure.
 
Made some progress on my mini stick, and got some more pieces printed for the northern pike by localfiend. Also pulled down the APmirage that I completed a bit ago. The power system from my grunjet is going in her this weekend as the grunjet is now a chuck glider for the kiddos. That grunjet was a great flying plane, thanks Grifflyer! Hated breaking her down, but she was starting to get soft around the edges. What a good into to EDF's though.
 
Updated my ZMR250 quadcopter, video transmitter now a half board on the stack with smart audio, receiver moved to the front of the frame with aerials attached to front arms, super bright status LED and buzzer at the back on a small board.
Looks so much neater and more professional in build.

Nice! The mirage will be fun! And if anything happens, you can stretch out the nose a bit and call it an F-106 ;).

Over the weekend, I acquired a new project. Thought that I would be done for the year, but I was offered a price I couldn’t refuse.. It’s currently setup for nitro, but I’ll be converting to electric and keeping the clutch installed for a slow scale spoolup.
