This morning was breezy but I took her out anyway. Awesome little plane! 3000kv motor, noisy but strong. Huge 5.75x2.5 prop. Tiny little 150mAh, 45C battery. Light but high discharge! Wing loading is low and she floats nicely. Prop hangs and punches out of of hovers easily. I'm at 6000' though, I could probably prop up a bit more. It has lightening cutouts in the bottom of the wing and is covered with a transparent film. It also comes with SFGs but they don't stay on very well, even with the little slot on the wing, so I flew without them.

Stay tuned for video. I was using my Go Pro so I tried my best to keep it in frame but I need to shoot more video with closer-in flying.

Your VisionAire vids are awesome! I need to slap my Go Pro back on my Sbach and do some more flights.

I'm waiting for the video, also. Slow upload. Only 20%.

Tower Hobbies was also running a special on the Tactic 650 with 2 free receivers $130 after coupons
Blue Wonder motor, HERC speed control and some servos were ordered from Heads UP RC to get the rest of the electronics.

Looking forward to being able to fly in much more diverse conditions and a bit slower with the huge wing on this. And if I crash, I'm out a buck in foam board

Pic from the internet
That looks like fun, Jimmy! Keep us updated on how the build progresses.

Here's some on board video from the VisionAire - taken with GoPro.. Much better quality than the last videos!

Watch in full screen and HD!



FPGP72 - yes I keep them in my car.. I haven't had any problems yet.. If it's a particularly hot day I'll crack the windows a little..

Looks good...tiny!

I was harassing the birds last night in the back yard with my Crack Yak. They do not like it when it does torque rolls in a hover. They didn't actually hit it, but were diving at it constantly.

Question on how to measure bullet connectors

I cannot find an answer on how to measure bullet connectors. I got some male connectors with motors I bought and now need to order females to complete the build. Anyone??

I've had the same issue. Best solution I have is to toss out the males you have and scrounge up a match set. Get a bunch of them so you can set up all your motors/planes the same way. Maybe consult with your local hobby shop to see what is popular locally?

You need to measure the inside diameter of the female side- which you may not have, and you may not have calipers.

Head to your local hobby shop, they'll be so glad to see someone they'll let you ease the staple out and try a few. If you have one, I have a couple I can reach, I'm lucky.

I would just buy a matching set...they are not expensive, and toss those in the parts box.

Working on getting my P40 in the air...twist and turn retracts are so flippin cool....it is just amazing how far this hobby has come in the last 10 years....just amazing.
