Thread: Cheap Chinese Laser Cutter
11/11/2019 20:34:38

Fairly sure on the speed using lightburn and speed is set to mm/min

I’ve been playing with cut settings on my Elekslaser a3 pro 2.5w. These settings seem to do the best job for me, the ply is left over from a top flite kit so not sure what type it is. The cuts don’t seem to be excessively burnt. Figures refer to speed mm/m and power, bottom line is number of passes. The 2mm hard balsa should have read 10 for passes.

Took the plunge and got an elekslaser a3 pro with 2.5w laser, after a little playing around i think i have some good settings in lighburn. 5mm balsa cut fairly clean. 3 passes per mmLaser settingsEdge

Thread: VR camera flight
21/08/2019 22:52:45

The camera is a Black Fin 720 VR camera, retail is about $280 ( Aust Dollars) got it cheap off ebay.

A cheap vr camera from ebay fitted to the wing makes an interesting flight video, being able to look around during the video gives a whole new perspective of your flight. Hope it works might have to open the youtube app to watch.

This girl’s maiden was my first flight this year Great Plane STA Ryan with a Saito FG21 4 stroke petrol. It was a very pleasant way to start the year.Good girl.jpegNaughty girl.jpeg

I use wheel balancing weights from the local tyre shop (the ones that fit and balance the tyres)

Thread: Unexplained crash

Just a thought, i recently lost a plane in a similar way, take off as usual then suddenly rolled to the left. A friend watching said i stalled it (had that plane for about 18 months so i thought that unlikely). On inspection i found that all servos but the elevator servo worked correctly, the elevator would quickly go to full throw up (radio on low rates) then slowly return to centre in jittering steps.

Yes the stripes are printed, there is paint on the fuselage fillets where the first white stripe meets the fuselage

Flies quite well, i used the eco setup recommended in the instructions, i used a 4s 2200 hobbyking battery which balanced it perfectly on the cog points printed on the wings

18/02/2018 21:03:18

I just used pla from hobbyking on all the planes i have printed. I just received my mk3 prusa and made the spitfire that’s included with the drivers package, i made a couple of changes to some gcodes to allow printing of invasion stripes, I will put some photos up shortly

I’ve printed the Stearman Kaydet and ezymax001 both fly quite well

Dont be worried to much about adding doublers mine is just held together with zap-a-gap medium and a spray of activator. Had about a dozen flights so far with no signs of joints failing.

With the one i printed i adjusted the length of the cf tube to get the balance right. Using close to the recommeded equipment (motor has higher kv rating) overall length is 1.07m, the exposed lenght of the cf tube is 32cm. Its surprising how well this flies, its quite fast (will go vertical without a problem) and glides better than expected. I got a 15min flight and landed with about 40% capacity remaining (1500mah turnigy battery) no heat from either the battery or speedy.cdff0582-1122-4958-a031-0f4b7f8fea6b.jpeg

Thread: Radial engines

Thanks gents, they should do the job

20/11/2017 07:13:52

Thanks for the link, i see some files will be free. There were some on thingiverse for a while i was hoping someone downloaded them before they were removed.

17/11/2017 10:42:20

Just wondering if any one got a copy of the stl files of radial engines that Dag Atwood had up on thingiverse. Just as i was all setup to download and print them they were removed.
