Maidened this yesterday.

Goes like stink on a TT42GP.

Ran out of elevator on finals (dead stick) and it landed flat in a field of sugar beet. No damage.

CofG amended and it awaits its second flight.

I am sure I saw a post a few days ago where someone was looking for this plan or something very similar to convert to electric, blowed if I can find it though.

Thank you Stephen.

I had seen your thread, but had not realised it was the same mode.

A motor will be going on mine, not sure of size yet though. It is also a few builds down the list.

I also have a small chuck glider that I would like to electrify.


A set up for this would also be good please.

At work today with no TV or Radio, so my predictions are in well before FP3.

Oh dear.

See you at the bottom of the league.

I am still waiting on a few bits from Far Far away (China), before I can commence my build(s).


Keep posting so I can keep learning.

Just back from a days flying.


Are these the bits you need Alan?




Fresh out of props, but there are two spinners, landing gear and a fresh set of doors and legs.


I may even have the door sequencer somewhere as well.


Make me a sensible offer and they are yours.


PM me to discuss.

I used them for some spares for my FW190.

What do you need Alan as I now have a kit of parts smile d

With the boards now on there way to us, I was wondering if any oe has a UK source for all the components at a good price.

Lots available from HonG Kong, but would rather use a home based source if I can.

A small update to the firmware.


Still not fixed your issue though.

I am happy to carry on with the first board as I have enough Pro Mini`s to suit them.


22/04/2019 20:31:02

The board at the top is the one I used for the Servo Tester.

Below are the 3 axis gyro and the board required for the sensor`s.



22/04/2019 20:21:27

Thanks Chris I now have the correct board and will take a look at the sensor I have.

It is a 3 axis Gyro and not a GPS.


22/04/2019 19:09:26

All Arduino boards are not the same!!!!!

I bought a few a little while back and made the servo tester. Good results works well.

Today I spent a good 20 minutes trying to upload openXsensor to a board.

Yep you guessed it. The second set of boards I got were 328P and not 168`s, both were 3.3v though.

Now I have a couple of MPU-6050 3 axis gyro with accelerometer sensor`s which I got in for this project.

Would they wire up in a similar fashion to the pressure sensor?

Told you I was a follower...

Welcome Robin.

Sounds like you have a large to do list.
