  So, tonight I fixed my R9MM receiver antenna.

  Actual measured length was 68mm.....So way out...!!

  Soldered a bit on and then trimmed it back to 78mm for 868mhz.

 Will test fly again tomorrow all being well, to see if it improves at all, be interested to hear from others and what theirs measure?

Few bits and bobs in today.  I got pinged by Tattu about testing some lipos, so I thought it might be interesting to try a 1300 one (albeit only 45C) against a 1550 (75C) one.  I have always flown 1300 4s on mini quads, but some of them have massive motors and the voltage sag is amazing sometimes, so I could see if it's all fixed on a 1550

I also got 2 servos in for my Flux build from Banggood

Also in the same publication: An explanation of the new SUA and FPV height rules for leisure fixed wing and exemptions for glider guiders and the restrictions on FPV models over 3.5Kg which now legally have to have a buddy box from operator to person in charge who is now legally responsible for the flight.

Hi BigT

I don't think there's anything new there, is there?  The FPV exemption applies up to 3.5kg (and has done for several years).  For anything above that the ANO applies (ie it must be kept within direct unaided visual contact).  One way to satisfy the ANO is to use a buddy lead and have the person with visual line of sight be in charge.

All the best

Simon

"throwing" is very questionable half the time too ... Mr Burns would be proud.

Also try to throw level, not upwards.
If I had a pound for every FPVer moaning about some plane or other being difficult to launch and then you see them throwing them up at 45 degrees into an immediate stall then I'd probably have six or seven pounds by now!

If you have problems starting, try half throttle. That's enough to get it going and it won't torque. Also try to throw level, not upwards.
I fly a Flux too, its a bit calmer to fly as the MiniRaceWing and i like the bigger electronics bay, much easier installation.

Good to know they must have stepped up their bearing game then :) Mine are a few years old so maybe that's it.

Yes we are at its mercy now ! :(

Hope the summer is as good as this years and the winter the shortest on record :)

How do the bearings cope on the SK's ? I found on two of mine they were the weak link.

I have found the bearings in the SK3 inrunner are great, I have a few of these motors. On my main speed rig I have probably oiled them 3 or 4 times in around 4 years, and that thing does the whole flight full throttle from takeoff to LVC. (1 minute). So in reality, it has probably got 6 or 7 hours of full throttle history! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhUONQRvedE

I have some SK3 outrunners on other projects and a couple of those do have rumbly bearings now after not too much use... I guess they use different bearings.
