Motor Swap

Started the brushless swap on the Twinstar, so far carefully cut out the engine mounts so I can move them back enough to mount the new motors on the front of the engine mounts. Also cut a channel in the wing to get at the motor loom, will epoy it back in when I fit the wiring for the new speed controllers.

Next day service

Can’t fault BRC Hobbies for their service, less than 24hours from the order being made I have the brushless conversion kit for the Twinstar :)

A parcel from HobbyKing has arrived too, what to do first…..

HobbyKing Go Discover

Had an email off HobbyKing this morning, these are currently on offer at about 1/2 price so took the plunge & bought one & a couple of 4s Lipo’s.
My first flying wing! Will have to get a go pro sorted now :)

 

 

FPV looks good!

 

New flying site

Now have access to a new flying field a few minutes walk from my house :)
Hopefully if the weather isn’t too breezy I will be able to get up there with the Twinstar & post some videos

St. George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance

http://www.bbm.org.uk/BHchapel.htm

By March 2016,the Royal Air Force/Ministry of Defence are withdrawing all support from the Chapel. If no one or group takes on the responsibility of this magnificent Memorial Chapel, it will be closed without access to the public or church services.

This Chapel was built as a Memorial to Aircrew, who had their lives taken in World War ll, they fought and they died. We, today, have the freedom to forget.
