Printing off the new replacement Spitfire, ran out of black filament so I figured for perspective let's give it a red left wing tip. Thoughts ??? Not sure if I like it myself and I do have more black showing up tomorrow.
I have been working quietly with a handful of others testing the "next" iteration of Tri-Flight, based on BetaFlight 4.1. Have yet to get any air time, but the preliminary bench testing is going well. Had to dust off my *flight skills since I have mostly been flying dRonin firmware.
I realized that a while back I was given a bunch of planes and various rc plane hardware including a bunch of nitro engines.
One of them is a very nice fiberglass cessna, I would just have to make new foam wings for it and slap my 25 size nitro engine in it and it would work just fine, I just need to get fuel and tubing/tanks.
Also considering the fact im currently working on getting a runway setup, that could be fun.
The engines that I currently have in a box
From left to right: OS max 35, magnum GP 25, AP 06 and unknown little thing.
They all seem in working order exept the 25 that has a broken fuel needle but I have spare parts so it is an easy fix.
I need to get some tubing and fuel tanks but I think I will try to revive the 06 first and put it in a flying wing, as I said the 25 will probably go into the cessna and the 35 probably in a VG-33.
@thenated0g Hiya mate long time no see welcome back. Hows things out your way
@Fluburtur Hit them with some after run oil if they have been sitting a long time and free them up by hand before jumping in and starting them up. The bearings and sleeves dry up and a cold start with no lubrication makes for a really bad day. Speaking of I need to hit my OFNA motor in my franken truck and give that a few spins again so that doesn't get flat spots from sitting dormant.
@PsyBorg actually they all turn by hand already, I already gave them some oil a while back too so that shouldnt be too much of an issue.
Im not in too much of a hury with those anyways, I have other stuff to work out before I try to start them.
