|Thread: Pix-e major (christmas winner build)|
thank you Tim & Steve
Steve i agree there i think that i will be getting one on my next order thats for sure need it for building next model may go with another one of Tim's builds... maybe even a old school bi plane .. if i fancy a challenge .... will keep in mind the prop idea not putting one on less its ready to go
Tim .. thank you didnt know if to go a little more involved with this on being little heavier and having the ailerons on it...
I know that is a little off the Pix-e but anyone ever heard of a precedent HiBoy training plane????
my teacher should be happy lol(mr Hargreaves) I'm learning
thank you thats how i did it working off the watts and working back to get the right safe Amps .. so
not got a meter yet but going to invest as starting to get back into things more now.. so going to need one.. they dont cost much when you think about the price you could lose out when you mess up on the motor / esc / battery front and could end up in loss of everything model included ..
thank you for your hard work there Ruprect
thanks also for all the info on the power set and the watts / Amps out.. looking to go with one of 2 a 7 x 5 and a 8 x 4 .. i think they seem to be giving watts needed also the amps are pretty good when it comes to the 15amp motor rating, as i thinks 15 is only a burst rate. with the selected props all being under @ around 11a and 9a
good morning Steve welcome to the party
good to hear that you think i have chosen right on the prop size i wasn't sure like the idea of about 80W that would fly characteristically , not wanting the model to fly like a sports plane but i may order 9x4 to go on the new model just for the extra push.. if i order all 3 then test all see how it all goes from there, .. dont want to over load anything
had a laugh as i was putting together my setup i remembered you saying about the prop adaptor earlier in the posts .so last night i was talking about it to may partner .. then when reading this, this morning, made me smile lol this is the prop adaptor i was thinking about getting PROP ADAPTOR
thank you again for the last part in your post too, good to know that details and that the setup its pretty good to go.. will keep this in mind for future use... looks like what you had put before in your previous lessons may have gone in a little lol
thank you Pete
thank you tim and ruprect .... the prop i was going for before Tim commented was going to be 8x4 slowfly prop and a model thats under 1.5lb that the motor says its able to pull, upto 800g think that about 1.7lb
hey all sorry been a little while building just been looking up power set.. please could you let me know if this all goes together ok???
Let me know more soon as pos please RC friends as need to order this soon as i can

|Thread: Pix-e major (christmas winner build)|
thanks you Tim , I have both wings for this model so will fly it with both and see if its any better I think it could be a different small model .thats designed not having ailerons . not sure if its going to change the CG much. but soon as i get it powered will work that out
do you think it will fly ok with the this style of wing or can you see future issues
well got some more done today all the wings are now joined together so and push rods now in place so here are th elastest pictures
a few more pictures of the new wings ... just some simple glueing to do now and then build the servo box then its ready to go, think she looks ok let me know what you all think..
been working on the second wing today
thank you Tim
like that it wont be able to do 3D just want a little more manoeuvrability nothing too over the top ..
the way Im hoping to do it is to sit the servo between the 2 wings and using the push rod on a bell crank.. seems very free and moves with the lightest touch so was hoping to just have a little 9g servo.. as want the weight low .. i think i have added about 2g doing what i have, so its not to bad..
thanks for the help Tim.. do you think the redesign looks ok? or would you do it different at all
Hi Steve thank you for that info i will do that .. i wasn't sure how much to put as didn't know if the effects would cancel out each other,
I can see what you mean now .. thinking about it you would have to feather it as you go.. so would you think that doing it with out any is better than 1/2" i was going to do 3/4" before you put not to put much so wasn't to far out.
I don't want to take to much away from the real design that Tim has done .. but just add to what i would like from this model. may use the wings on my redesign of the PIX-E .. may call it the Pix-e Plus
also Steve while your here can i ask do you think that a little 9g servo is ok to use to move the ailerons or do you think that its not up to the job??

push rods fitted now and working
dont know if the size and placing of the aileron will be ok or not
