Better Bungee Required
« on: May 20, 2018, 03:41:50 PM »

Does anyone know where I can acquire some stronger bungee tubing?

I require it the be able to take 5 times the weight of my Mini Talon which has an AUW of 1.8kg.  = approx 9kg.
As you can see from the video, the HK bungee tubing would only give me about 5.5kg.

That had crossed my mind.
It is so long when stretched out to its limit, so that might work. Double it up and half the length.

I bought the hobbyking stuff and doubled it up to launch my X8 which came in at a heavy ( but cant remember exactly how much ) weight. It will do the Talon fine.

Looking at the video though, if you had throttle on and tried that it would have been away.

Thanks Coyote for the reply.

In the past I have launched a couple of wings by bungee and found that if I throttled up as she was being catapulted the bungee cord got tangled in the prop with the inevitable happening.

A friend has hand launched it for me and all went fine.
She is sat ready for another flight, but not done anything about the bungee yet. Might just hand launch her myself.

Hi All
Just a quick update.
I have done as stated by DillWhacker and doubled up and used 2 strands and it works great.
Thanks all for your comments.

Thought you might like that. Was ready to ditch it.
Now programmed my Taranis to shout at me every 10secs when motor is disarmed.
