Re: Blue Foamie

Are those 2 cell or 3 cell Lipo's you guys are using?

Also have you guys stuck to the 6 amp speed control? Any problems there. Anyone using the 10 amp spd cntrl instead? Any noticeable changes in flight characteristics with the extra 3 grams?

Re: Blue Foamie

We"ll never be the same but for what it's worth your welcome! I started drawing the templates in autocad today. I will be fun to run them on the CNC. One thing that occured to me is that I will be able to scale them easily, if desired. Today was a great day for outdoor flying, I went to the pond down the road and had 3 flights on my Flash, the Clik's big brother. It was so much fun I had to go back a couple hours later and burn some nitro in my Ergo 60.

Well, we where going to keep the "foamie super charger" a secret but since mark let the cat out of the bag........

We always used a 2 cell 360 battery to save weight. There is no bought that the 3 cell gives you better power but you need to make sure you have the proper set up.

I am currently using a 6 amp speed controller on my C%^K, with an 8x4 prop in can use a 3 cell lipo. We tried using a 9x5 prop, this works great with the 2 cell lipo but when using the 9x5 prop with the 3 cell lipo, the system is drawing to much power and like Marc said and the motor and ESC got HOT!

if using a 2 cell lipo, a 8x4 prop works justy fine... for extra power air on the wings for faster controls use the 9x5 prop.

If you want to go really fast, a 3 cell lipo is key but with only a 8x4 prop.

Some of us in the gym should stick to 2 cell with 8x4 because there is already to much SPEED!

Take care, and if your gonna hit make it a MID AIR!

Re: Blue Foamie

Thanks to Jan and the Boys who invited us to join them Friday night, it must have been a shock to see so many foamies in the air at the same time, we see that often at our gym, we just bring more glue and sometimes more glue guns. Hopefully we're helping Canadian Tire to stay afloat during these hard economic times. We had a great time and we'll do it again next year if you invite us again

Re: Blue Foamie

Gaston,
I put 7 flights in on my blue foamy I got from you this past Saturday. I really like the plane, and it flies great!

I did notice, compared to the fancy foam biplane I have (with an AXI motor) the same 2 cell 350mah battery doesnt seem to last as long or provide as much vertical power... so, since they both use the same GWS 8x4 prop I took the AXI off of the bipe and put it onto the blue foamy.... I am interested to see how the same plane flies now with the AXI... and if I get more vertical, and longer battery times, or the same, or worse.

Its going to be some time however before I get to test it, as the next few weeks are tied up and no flying will be done

AJC

Re: Blue Foamie

Hey Andrew, thanks for the tips today. Because I'm still fairly new it seems to be fairly easy (if that's what you can call it) to push myself in both directions before I learn too many bad habits of sticking with one direction It was nice to finally meet you, also. Gaston can't stop saying enough good things about you!
