RC airplane world website – Recommendation

There is a lot of info out there on the internet. Some of it is misleading rubbish and some of it is very useful.

www.rc-airplane-world.com definitely comes under “very useful”. It contains loads of info about RC aircraft – everything from blimps to jets and all served up with plenty of common sense.

Many thanks to Peter who runs rc airplane world for including a link to our club in his club directory.

Yes, I know it should be “aeroplane” world and not “airplane” world 🙂  I’ve taken this up with (British) Peter – he says it was a choice he made to maximise Google hits from our US friends.

FPV flying at WHMFC

Some of our model flying is “FPV” (First Person View) where the model is flown through an onboard camera.

One FPV plane at the club is a Tundra fitted with an EagleTree Vector flight controller and a Mobius camera on a pan & tilt mount.

Plane weighs in at 1.8kg – as compared to a more normal weight for a Tundra of around 1.2kg – so a bit more throttle and care in cornering is necessary compared to an average “floaty” Tundra.

Battery is a 3S 2700mAh giving a safe 8 mins of flight (plus a number of minutes to spare).

See gallery for pictures.
