audioguru Posted July 9, 2005 Report Share Posted July 9, 2005 ugly planes don't fly.Sorry to be off-topic for a minute: :-[I am making a very ugly looking plane that I expect will fly very well. Instead of using a radio control system, I'm going to use adjustable timers and PWM for its electric engine's speed and elevator control:1) Full power for about 15 seconds for its takeoff roll and climb.2) Up elevator for about 1 second when the plane is halfway down the runway.3) About 1/2 power for cruising for about 1 minute. It won't go straight, it will circle like a hawk.4) About 1/10th power for about 15 seconds for a gentle landing.5) Over-current sensing of its motor to cut power if my plane hits a tree or me! ;DI won the ugly thingy as a door prize at the very 1st model airplane club meeting I attended. ;D ;D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
