Managed to get a couple of flights in on the Twink. Camera working okay this time Managed to bash one of the aileron pushrods walking into the field which bent it slightly & required a bit of trim on the first flight, other than that and some poor attempts at landing on the narrow track in the long grass some good flights. Looks like the field will be cut for silage shortly so will try and get the Travelair out for some nitro flying
twinstar “parked” heavily again. Was running the new motors and the smaller props, did 1 circuit and lost all control/power and bent/burst the nose badly & ripped out the wing mounts. Wasn’t a brown out as it didn’t go into failsafe (had left aileron on as it crashed not neutral). My own stupid fault, I have had doubts about the ESC after the last 2 flights, but it always tested okay on the bench. Since first crash I have replaced the batteries, motors & Rx. Think the twink is glue-able but l am loosing faith in electrickery.
