I have managed to fly every weekend over the last 2 months apart from the weekend before last when we had 40mph winds.

Not always perfect conditions but not bad. Usually fly first thing just as it gets light before the local field is in use. Seems to be the stillest time with the weather.

Sunday morning was -4c no wind with frosty grass.
Ended up seeing how long a mark I could leave on my landings on the white grass. my record was 26 paces!

Does anyone have any good information on where to obtain the required plugs or cables with plugs?
Thanks

Hi all. My name is Mick and I live in Melbourne Australia. I am new to the world of RC flying, having only started it a couple of months ago. My goal is to stop turning my first plane into a lawn dart.

Mick, you might want to invest in a simulator such as RealFlight G3.5 or equivalent. You will save a lot of hardware that way.

Hello Gong and welcome to WattFlyer.

Here is a link to Autogyro Company of Arizona. They have a complete line of kits and I hear good things about them.

Hope this helps.

Hello all
I just got a Blade CP Pro. I am on battery 17 and can hover decently if I am in a 10 foot square.

I started out 2 years ago with the RTF Air Hogs stuff. Planes like the Aero Ace Bipe, Aero Ace Jet, Defender and Stealth Bomber. I had a lot of fun with them. I have a Storm Launcher too that I am training on. I got a Reflex and Havoc for Christmas but they weren't satisfying my Helicopter desires. After looking at the Falcon 40 and the Blade CX for a while I decided that the Blade CPP would be a great challenge for me.

I love these forums. As I am new to this "real" RC stuff I am devouring as much info as time will allow.

Cliffysstuff playing lawn darts at speed sometimes happens... its part of the game, and once you get past the learning curve which sometimes can be expensive and frustrating even with the sim. but stick with it and soon you'll have smooth flying and hopefully even smoother thumbs :D

Hi All,

I just joined Wattflyer today. I have been flying RC for over 20 years. I have been flying electric planes for the past 8 years exclusively. I started out flying a Bleriot slow flyer as I found myself with lack of time after work to fly. So it was a fun plane to fly in front of the house after work to get my fix. I have been hooked on electrics ever since.

Rabbitcreekok 02-19-2007 04:52 PM

Welcome to WattFlyer helipilot. Boy, you are absolutely correct. It is so much easier to fly electrics compared to glow fueled airplanes. No muss no fuss. Got a few minutes, go fly.

I totally agree with the convenience of electric.

The front yard is great for a quick fix before a round of golf etc. here is Florida.:D

Thanks for the welcome! By the time I would get home from work, pack the car, head to the field I got maybe 2 flights in before it got dark. This got old real fast. So out of frustration I thought I would try e-power and WOW! I was hooked bad. I could use the sidewalk in front of my house as a runway and fly all evening. After I was finished all I had to do was wipe a few leftover electrons off and I was ready for the next session.
