    That is pretty cool. I found the Little Bird and the pilot and my favorite scalemodel shop.. http://www.badcataviation.com/mhlibinist1b.html The scale is 1:18; other helmets in this scale may fit, too.

    Larger Easy Star...?

    I'm also going to get one of these. Should be easy enough to relocate the servos aft; this will also help with keeping the CG where it belongs.

    Curious as to lighter weight lipo's

    Hold on, guys. I used a Thunderpower 3S2000 prolite for my easystar. It's about 50g lighter than other companies batteries of similiar capacities. I would have had to use a smaller capacity lipo to power the plane to keep the cg where it needs to be if I used another brand.

    2.4GHz R/C: How Far Have We Really Come?

    Does any one know what exact frequency range is used by the major manufactures of the 2.4ghz R/C transmitters? I'm curious of any of the 8 widely availabe 2.4ghz video frequencies fall outside of them. My current video transmitters on 2.4 use the first 4 frequencies, and if I knew I could avoid 2.4 R/C interference, I'd probably switch to a different video TX.
  5. Well, I just finished my modified Pandora mount for the IFOSC Camera. I used a piece of thin plastic and created a new backplate using the original concept. I was able to make a large enough hole in the back to allow access to the controls without compromising the integrity of the part. However, I would STILL buy a custom backplate to keep the snazzy red scheme complete!
  6. Here's the pictures. It seems to fit fine in the available space. FWIW, the IFOSC is 30.14 high, vs 24.82mm for the KX-131. However, the IF OSC is not much wider; 30mm vs 28.64
  7. Mr. RC-Cam... Has any thought been given to provide different back-plates for camera other than the KX-131? The reason I ask is because I would like to use my new IF OSC camera (LINK) with my Pandora mount. This camera demands access to it's back to get at the camera's controls. I know I could probably hack someting up, but it wouldn't be as nice as the rest of the pandora mount
  8. Yes, you need a powered splitter. There are a few different models that work well, and are relatively inexpensive. Here's one. http://www.amazon.com/Pyle-PLV2-1-into-4-D...7901&sr=1-1
  9. Terry, did you cut the nacelles and mount the motors further aft? The picture you posted leads me to belive you did.. If that is the case, could you briefly outline how you went about it, and what your experiences have been? I'm considering doing that to my TS..

    Maxim's Loss-of-Video-Sync Alarm IC

    That was exactly the desire I had, after my review of Oracle as well.. (here) I use a 14db and an 8db patch, and a distinct beep would be useful in 'mapping' the coverage of the individual antennaes to obtain the absolute best aiming solutions for the different ones...

    Maxim's Loss-of-Video-Sync Alarm IC

    I am currently using a 8db and a 14db set of patches with excellent results. If you fly in front of yourself only, I think this is a great combination.
  12. No, that is a double biquad.
  13. if you keep reading that page, you'll get more information.... Most people don't use dipole antennas, and a patch will give you alot more range.

    FWIW, I have 3 different Easystars, 2 I use for fun, and one for my FPV adventures. None of them have ailerons. IMHO, they aren't needed on this airplane. I can do rolling circles with any of them (haven't had the guts to try that FPV yet) I do cut the rudder off at the hinge line and build a new one abour 3 times the original area. The Easystar is a almost perfectly designed 3 channel airplane; I can very finely control mine to the point where I can catch it in my hand instead of landing in the grass more often or not. I also don't want to have the added amp draw pulling down my ESC. I'm already powering 4 servos, and while I'm sure the pan/tilt servos don't draw alot of power, I'd be afraid 2 more servos to control the ailerons would be pushing my luck. Additionally, in an airplane already overcrowded with wiring, the last thing I want to mess with is more wires. The Easystar is a great airplane for basic FPV flight. It's cheap, durable, and will teach us alot about the ins and outs of flying FPV. I plan on flying the heck out of mine without ailerons, and when the time comes to fly a plane with ailerons, I'll use a Twinstar. Here's my latest video from my rudder only Easystar. I don't have the slightest desire for more roll control at all.

    great video! I liked the instrumentation, too. It looks similiar to what I proposed in this post http://www.rc-cam.com/forum/index.php?show...st=0entry7888 Is it a similiar model?
