The Yoshioka Bingo.F3A is done, and it has been a journey. I bought the kit from Ishii Mokei several years ago and have built it in stages, enjoying it a lot. The Bingo.2M is originally a 3D plane for YS engines with oversized control surfaces. Mine is the first F3A-variant called Bingo.F3A with normal ailerons and elevators.
Ready for it’s first flight. It’s been a fun experience assembling the model, the quality of the “kit” and the instructions were really good. Now let’s see how it flies! As usual: More pictures here
The Elexant is almost finished, just waiting for the proper servos to arrive. The assembly has been largely unspectacular – the Plettenberg Advance motor is like made for it, and with so much of the plane finished from the factory it’s the easiest plane I’ve ever assembled, and by far the best quality. The only […]
MY ZN line Integral has been converted to electric. It has been flown just a few times this year, and although I love the simplicity of the 170 CDI, I needed to strip the whole plane down and re-paint parts of the nose where the paint had been eaten away by Nitro, and the home-made […]
The Xigris, my first 2×2 electric is underway. Equipment: – Plettenberg Evo – Kontronik Jive 100 HV – Futaba FASST – 9650 x 2 in stab – 9154 x 2 ailerons – BLS154 rudder Follow the build here
I was very depressed when I crashed my Laser. And when I’m down I go shopping. After a few text messages on the eve of the crash I was up one ZN line Xigris kit, a Plettenberg 30-10 outrunner and a Kontronik Jive 80 controller. Turns out it pays off to spread the word when […]
Update: It’s been flown, 5 flights total. The setup seems sound enough and the plane is extremely responsive. Low rates became high rates after some hefty tweaking on the radio. The rudder response is really out of this world. I cna’t belive the canalizer does all that but if it does, I don’t really see […]
Yes we do indoor as well… Audun flies his Vrolet.
I finally got to fly the Mini Scalar that I spent the winter assembling and painting. The plane flew surprisingly well, requiring just two clicks of aileron trim. Surprising is putting it mildly, since I had to set up all incidences myself, my first time ever doing so. Nothing beats beginners luck. The plane is […]
Something for those dead calm summer evenings. I’ll power it with a Mega motor and kontronik PIX1000 I have lying around, and something like 2S 800-1000 LiPo. Incredible lightness, perfectly constructed. Pictures will be added to Flickr.
