Issue#634347: Radio Control - FPV Microquad: 50g flying weight & 7 minutes flight time!

  • Hi guys!

    In this video we take our 3D printed brushed FPV quadcopter for a fun ride in the garden. With only 50g flying weight, you can literally fly this almost anywhere and get ~7 minutes (as shown in the video) of fun on a single battery charge.

    Hi all! In this video we build & fly an FPV quadcopter with less than 250g flying weight and over 11 minutes flight time (not just hovering!). Additionally this Miniquad is built to carry a RunCam 2! We go through the complete build, do a timelapse flight to show the flight time and finally show a video with the mounted RunCam 2.

  • Issue#5103: Radio Control - challenge: student level quick build time free flight glider

    My end goal is to have a kit that is very quick and easy to build for students so they can be up in the air quickly and have some room to experiment. At the end I'd hope there would be something with some half-decent performance, maybe 30 - 60 second flight times? In the meantime I've been playing around with a couple of designs, one which is to be a thermal glider with an inexpensive de-thermalizer timer using about half a sheet of readi-board and another which is a small 12" rubber band launched glider. Both have about a 20 - 30 minute build time. Nothing I've built so far can get more than a 15 second flight in dismal winter weather, but I'm getting really light wing loading of less than 0.7 oz. / sq. ft. If there is interest I can post what I have so far. I'm hoping there might be enough interest for others to contribute ideas and designs :)

    An amazing home built B-17 Flying Fortress Slope Glider. Kevin W said he cut it out 10 years ago and just the other week decided to put it together for this years annual meet on the Tapps Ridge! As can be seen in the video it flew absolutely magnificently and Kevin was a very happy flyer when it finally touched down. Kev also mentioned he might fit some retracts for next year so he can just land on the roadway LOL! So sit back and take in the great flight and views of this beautiful B-17 Flying Fortress and the area we call Tapps! Thanks for watching! cheers Chuck B-17 Flying Fortress-Maiden Flight-Australia Day 2016-Tapanappa Ridge (5 min 58 sec)

  • Issue#32737: Radio Control - Long Flight Time Aircraft

    Hi guys. I am looking for a fixed wing platform with a blend of decent performance and long flight times. Instantly, I thought of buying an F5J electric sailplane. However, they seem to be to fragile, very expensive, and difficult to build (for my skill level at least). What else out there can get me some good flight time with decent performance? 45 minutes to an hour would be nice.

  • Issue#39207: Radio Control - 35 minute flight time with 450 APM heli

    i installed an apm on a cheap hk450 heli a few month ago and got it flying pretty good before i stripped out a servo, but before that happened i tried my 5200mah 3s 10c multistar pack and it hovered for 35 minutes about 10 feet above the ground with no wind, considering that my phantom gets 25 minutes without any fpv gear on the same battery i was amazed. i managed to test ALT hold and it worked very well but i didnt have a gps onboard so i couldn't test loiter. i showed this to my friend who flies rc helicopters and he was amazed that i could just take my hands off the controls and it would pretty much just sit there and that i could fly figure of 8's after only a few flights. since it now had an apm it was basically a quad with autolevel so it was very natural to fly coming from multirotors. so now that i have seen what is possible i have decided to overhaul the cheap stock hk450 and get it ready for FPV. im going to keep it light, just a fpv camera, microminimosd and a small 2

  • Issue#52708: Radio Control - First time flying a warbird

    Wow. I can say I have come pretty far. I flew my first warbird today after just starting to fly RC airplanes in January. Full disclosure: I flew RC heli's for about 5 months before realizing my true calling. I found a local guy selling a Durafly P-40N on craigslist about a week and a half back. Te guy was asking $100 for a PNP bird. I went over and looked at it and dropped him a C-note. It seemed like a good deal. The bird wasn't without problems. Welcome to the world of buying used planes. The rudder servo needs to be replaced but its working. I had to change the push rods for the empennage as well as the clevis'. The servo box needed some work because the hole for the rudder was busted. I made a little 1/2x1/2 tab and Ca'ed them onto the existing servo box. This caused the rudder servo to sit up about 1/8th of an inch and caused some major binding when running from the servo to the tail wheel then onto the rudder. I had an EZ-Link on the servo and on the tailwheel assembly. I ended

  • Issue#55766: Radio Control - Android App for flight time check

    Hello guys, do you know any recommended application for Android to control the time of flying? App should have a talking timer with 30 second intervals. Will be nice if it has also a countdown timer. I've searched Google Play, but didn't find any application dedicated to RC models.

  • Issue#100389: Radio Control - Achieved long flight/hover of 51 minutes with conventional motor/props

    Wind was high at 20 km/hr but decided to test and it gave 51 minutes. The setup was very conventional except the batteries which are Panasonic 18650 3s 3p. DJI 2212 motors, 1235 prop, APM 2.6, gps and 3dr telemetry still adding to the weight. I purchased separately rctimer 360kv motors and 1855 props for long flights but still not build. The advantage of getting a good flight time with 12" props is you can fly at a speed of 30-40 km/hr which is not the case with low speed large props of 18".

  • Issue#193592: Radio Control - Flight time estimation

    Hi all I'm going to be building my first 250 class quad soon, and I'm trying to get a rough estimate of the flight times that different 4s batteries will give me. I've created the spreadsheet model below, which seems to be giving very high flight times, and I'm looking for feedback on how I could improve it. I suspect the problem lies in my optimistic "Thrust inefficiency factor"...? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing Thoughts much appreciated :)

  • Issue#289698: Radio Control - Problem - Quadcopter flight time

    Hello everyone, this is my first post on RC Groups. I am new to the RC scene and seem to be having a problem with my quad. My quad consists of the following components: 600mm reptile h4-j4 frame Emax mt2206 1500kv motors Emax 12A ESC's 8045 carbon fiber props 5000mah turnigy 3S battery Various fpv equipment The problem I am running into is this: It seems that about 2 minutes after level flight, the quadcopter losses an immense amount of power and begins a quick descent. After checking the temperatures of the motors, they are hot to the touch to the point where I can't hold my finger on them. After a minute or two of having the quad off, I can again fly for a short amount of time before the same problem occurs, and the cycle continues. My question is whether or not this configuration is improper or if there might be a hardware malfunction. I would greatly appreciate any input. Thank you!

  • Issue#364004: Radio Control - Agricultural quad needs a flight time improvement!

    Hello, I'm very sorry for starting yet ANOTHER optimize my power system thread, but my current strategy of trial and error has been vetoed by my wallet. I am doing a science project over agricultural drones for small farmers and I have built an infrared imaging quad using Pixhawk. However, for it to make any sense as far as practicality, I need some more flight time! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    Finally have it flying well but the batteries don't seem to last very long. Only get about 2 minutes of usable flight time. Anything after that and it is just too weak to barely climb let alone attempt to do any 3D maneuvers. Also, there isn't much lift power with this heli. Throttle is at 100% and upward authority is very poor. Blade pitch is set to max throw, any more and the servos do some sort of reverse reaction. Are others seeing the same with this heli?

    Title says it all... i own a JXD 509G which i find is awesome for the price but its biggest drawback is the very poor flight times. haven't timed it yet but i doubt i get more than 4-5 minutes. so my question is: is it feasible to wire two lipos in parallel to effectively get augmented flight times? i'm thinking 2x 750mah lipos should give me close to 10 minutes?
