|Thread: BEC not in use|
Thanks All !
Probably a silly question but here goes :
I am building a four engined aircraft with four esc with bec. I am not using the bec's but will be pairing throttles together via a y lead i.e. two outer and two inner motors. I propose to disconnect the positive wire at the Y lead (No BEC) but effectively joining the positives from each pair of esc together at the Y? I am wondering is this an issue ? I wanted to leave the positive wire intact on each throttle then I can disconnect the Y lead and use a programmer on each ESC should I need to!
I hope I have explained my question.
|Thread: Making oracover Matt ?|
Great stuff thanks that's the look I am after !
Its a balsa model fully sheeted wings and fuselage the Nijhuis one !
Has anyone experience in making Oracover a matt finish ? I am building a Sunderland, trying to keep the weight down so thinking of doing the white bits in oracover putting some pencil detail on then matt varnish ! I intend to flat the oracover and spray matt varnish anyone done it ? I figure it will be lighter than glass and resin. It is electric so no fuel to worry about !
|Thread: Finishing closed cell foam ?|
Great stuff will give this a bash using some very light glass cloth thanks.
I have made two floats for the Tony Nijhuis Sunderland from the interior of Kingspan ( pale yellow), stiffened with a central rib of balsa. How can I skin them to prepare them for spraying ?
Any tips appreciated I am trying to keep them light.
|Thread: Multiplex Dual Receivers|
Todays project in the pouring rain ... thanks very much. Frank.
Thanks Frank, I will give that a go, I think the difference is probably one spline, but if I move one arm its out the other way if you follow !
I am doing this, the problem is I have two elevator servos on separate channels where the movements on low rates need to be about 12 degrees and oh high rates about 60 degrees, so they have very large servo arms. The problem is the two down elevator movements don't quite match in the low rate, so I was hoping there was a way to adjust servo end points in both flight conditions to exactly match servo movements.
Hopefully guys on here can answer another question ? sorry !
I have set up conditions, I only need two and used the dual rate switch to switch between conditions 1 and 2. I was then able to use different amounts of expo with mild and wild movements. However I find I need different servo end points as well, again my lack of understanding isn't letting me grasp this, can anyone tell me how this can be done ?
|Thread: Powerbox Gemini 2|
Its a large petrol extra with 35kg hv servos, which will be energetically thrown around by my son so 7.4v it is I'm afraid !
Damn now I need to buy lipos instead of the life I have just bought ! Thanks Manish.
Thanks for the reply, my question is can I set it to 7.4v from 2 x life cells rather than lion ?
This is probably a stupid question so I apologise in advance . I have just bought one of these and have read the manual but my question doesn't seem to be answered ! The output voltage is selectable 5.9 or 7.4v, if you are running two life batteries (6.6v) does it still supply 7.4v or does life mean you have to select 5.9v ?
Oh for the days of a switch and four standard servos !!!!!
|Thread: Multiplex Dual Receivers|
I fly pinch usually three fingers and use cockpit sx12 with neck strap, but with Hi tec stick tops to get the extra length without the width of the Multiplex ones. Just FWIW.
I don't know if this helps I buy a lot from here they seem to say 2 weeks
I agree Peter, I get embarrassed keep asking, but the instructions do leave a little to be desired in certain cases ! I go on the forum but you can bet the answer you need is invariably in German. Nice gear though !
Great stuff many thanks this solves my problem without spending another fortune on powerbox SRS.
A follow up sorry how do you bind both to the TX ?
