Thread: Mass Build 2013 The Shortlist - time to vote!

Thanks for the plan link WolstonFlyer.

When I search for Tucano all I get is this:

Search Results for - tucano

None of which refer to the plan - what am I doing wrong??

I may be missing something here, but, I can't find a plan for the Tucano anywhere in the MHS plans service.

If it is to be a mass build where are the plans available from?


Thread: 6EX -2.4 GHz tranny with FrSKY Rx for the first time
14/08/2012 21:45:16

The pin positions of the FrSky rx are the same as the Futaba 617, i.e.

1 Ailerons (left aileron)

2 Elevator

3 Throttle

4 Rudder

5 Gear

6 Flaps (right aileron)

7 Battery

If you are using an ESC for electric flight then the BEC goes to position 3 and will power the receiver and servos, and will also control the throttle.

The throttle 'servo' needs to ne reversed for Futaba transmitters.


Thread: Battery pack for multiplex fun cub rr

I use 2200mAh 11.1V (3S) in mine.

I bought the plane, motor and batteries from BRC Hobbies.

The 2200mAh battery gives about 15/20mins flight time in fairly calm conditions.

As per the manual, connect the left wing servo to channel 1 and the right wing servo to channel 2.

Then reverse the servo on the left wing - do the surfaces now move as expected?

Make sure they move in the correct direction (not the opposite of what's required) - if not reset the left wing servo to normal and reverse the right wing one.
