RC Helicopter flying, RC Cars and RC boating

Made for other people and me to track what I am doing when with my remote controlled units. It started out with helicopters. Hence the name.

If only one of my units is of interest, this unit can be clicked on the right and only posts regarding that unit shows up.

Flying with carbon blades

They are really stiff and they are really heavy. The motors are definitely doing more RPMs and I am not sure I like that. I also think the flight time is somewhat reduced. Maybe I will do some sanding to try to give these blades a better shape.



Replaced walkera 4#3 main motor again

I think I will start looking into upgrading this to brushless. I discovered a thread on rcgroups regarding converting this bird to brushless: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=830186
