Thread: UBEC 8 A doubt!!
27/10/2012 20:01:30

Hi, thanks all, for answer me!

I want two Ubec, becouse one is for the RX/TX system, and the other is for the engine ignition! The plane is a Extra 300 S with 2005mm wingspan, and the engine is a petrol SV Hobby 50cc twin! "Increasing the flight range", fly over time and lose as little time to recharge batteries!!

Thanks again to all of you!

Best regards

Hello, I have a doubt in install two ubec in my new extra 300!!

Recently I bought two Wobbywing Ubec 8A, to install on my extra 300, with the aim of increasing the flight range. I also bought two 7,4V lipo batteries to connect to the ubec´s. In the ubec´s instrutions manual, I had read that it could cause some interference on the receiving system.

My radio system is the Sepktrum DX7s, and in the aircarft I had installed the AR8000. My question is:

Do you think that installing both batteries and both ubec, this may cause significant interference in the radio signal, and cause loss model??

Thanks for your attencion..

When I tried to start the engine for the first time he did not work, becouse a pipe was not in the right place!! And I tried to start the engine with the starter, and the spinner melts!!

Thread: MVVS 26CC Problems
19/07/2012 11:16:32

Thanks Alan Cantwell, I also expose this problem to MVVS and they recommended that in the future I should use MOBIL 2t synth oil in 2,5% ratio!

I think that I´ll follow their advice.

Here are some photos about the damages on engine!




Thanks again

Best regards

Hi, I´m writing today to tell you what happened to me on last weekend during a flight with my RASCAL 110, powered with a MVVS 26cc engine.

The engine always works fine, but on last weekend, and sudently in the air he starts losing power and turn off in the air. When the aircrafts landing, luckly on runway, the engine was extremily hot. After the engine cool down a bit I began to disassemble it, starting at the top of the cylinder, where I found a dark paste, but the cylinder haven´t any damage. Then I removed the rear cover of the engine, and there was the problem. The rear cover of the engine has some risks, and the bearing at the base of the alley was broken!
It´s strange because I use the oil that was recommended by the guy of the store when I bought the aircraft, I also bought the oil there. He recommended this oil SAMURAI RACING by IPONE company in the 2% dilution ratio.
I would like to know your opinion about that, and what did you think could have caused this particular problem on the engine.
Did you recommended another oil, with a hight viscosity level!??

Thanks, for your attencion

Best regards

Hello all! My name is Armando Ferreira, I´m 30 years old, I live in the city of Guimarães in North of Portugal! I started flying in the beginning of 2012, in a Club named Clube de Aeromodelismo Vale do Ave, where I learned to fly. I had started with a electric Fun Cub and now I can fly some other aircraft models, like a low wing Tiger 60, Piper Cub an also my last plane, a Rascal 110 with 2800mm of wing. I also subscribed the RCM&E magazine, because I like not only the pictures but also the articles about aircraft reviews. I hope that I can improve my knowledge about flying with all of you!!

Thanks for all your attention, best regards

Sorry about my English!!!smiley


This is my largest aircraft "Rascal 110" powered with gas engine MVVS 26cc!


Here is one of my first landings with this aircraft!
