Hi Pete. my stuff has been packed away for the winter but I have managed to get a couple of pictures, I hope it helps? Regards, David


The first one shows the aerial along the side of the bus it's the grey wire - you also make out the aerial poking out the side.

This one nearly shows the aerial poking out the side so I have them at right angles

Can I ask for some help please.

I have the Durafly Junior, I have concerns about the receiver installation.

I am using a Spektrum full range receiver and standard installation stipulates a 90 deg seperation of the aerials, there is simply no space, any advice?

Cheers

Hi, I use Futaba that also has two aerials - I have just poked a hole through the side of the fuselage located the aerials then pushed the receiver into place - works like a dream!

I totally agree Joliffee and it just may be a first in the history of the mass build, At the very least it'll be interesting to see how they've faired after 2yrs

OK I'm in let's make this a first - who else is willing to dust off their Barnstormers and bring them along?

Good to see this thread resurrected, my Barnstormer hasn't flown but now I think its time to dust it down and get it ready - maybe we should have a get together at Greeenacres next year -?

I took mine this year Joliffee though it didn't fly this time the gusty turbulent cross wind put me of though I did fly my trusty old e-pioneer, but a re-union next year sounds a great idea yes

Yes the winds have been very bad this year Phil, I managed to get my A during a big blow - we should try to get a get together next year a lot of us built the Barnstormers - so if only we have a static display it would be worth it?

Is it ok to use the F150 3-Axis Gyro in a fixed wing plane - I only ask because I've only seen them on helicopters?

A few days ago I ordered a 10mm LED from eBay (£2.99 inc P&P) to use as a landing light, this is pre-wired and came mounted in a chromed plastic bezel and is designed to be run on 6v. As mentioned in a previous post the UBEC that I am using has a receiver switched output for an AUX function that is selectable at either 5v or 6v, I will wire up the LED with a socket so that it can be disconnected if I ever need to remove the nose cone.

What a good idea - I will steal this is you don't mind?

Hi Chris. I notice that some guys have found the nose wheel mounting is weak - have you any thoughts about this? David.

Hi. Just finished mine. Always wanted a full size. ...nearly bought one years ago.
To me it's a thing of beauty.
Should maiden it this week. I'll put some pics up if I can work out how to.

I was wondering what motors and ESC's you used?

David

20/04/2015 18:46:45

HI Chris. I have purchased one of these but not started to build it yet but I have purchased two Turnigy Aerodrive SK3 - 3536-1200kv motors. I will be keen to see how you proceed with your build so please keep up the god work!

You need to use the BALANCE plug... This is what runs the main blades. The front motor goes into channel 3wink

Hi Nigel, I've got dihedral on mine - I think it will be very twitchy without it - I took advice from DB.

Good to hear your Barnstomer is going well, I've also missed Greenacres but hopefully next year!

My Barnstormer completionhas stalled due entirely to the great weather and me taking all the opportunity to get as much possible stick in time so as to get get my A. I like the fact you have found it a stable flyer - I must get mine into the air!

If you pass I will offer to be your ground crew!

I have been getting lots of flying in over the last few weeks but not quite ready to have a go at the test in time for next week

Edited By WolstonFlyer on 13/06/2014 19:16:07

James not having seen you fly I can't really judge but given my standard I suspect you're prob closer than you think one piece of advice I have picked up over the last few weeks is read, and read again CAP 658 it really is all in there pretty much word for word from the BMFA hand book and for me much easier to read and sort out whats relevant and whats not also as my instructor said wednesday evening the examiners not there to fail you just to see if your safe to fly solo

Forgive my ignorance but what is CAP 658?
