RC Helicopter flying, RC Cars and RC boating

Made for other people and me to track what I am doing when with my remote controlled units. It started out with helicopters. Hence the name.

If only one of my units is of interest, this unit can be clicked on the right and only posts regarding that unit shows up.

Second carbon fiber inner shaft experiment

E-sky Lama V3Posted by xilsoe Feb 08, 2008 19:39:19
Yesterday I glued the shaft once more. I had made a little flat spot on the shaft to let the epoxy fill that and make this turn the shaft.
I inserted the shaft into the Lama today and I actually made it fly smiley
It flew for half a battery before the lower insert came loose once more and made me land quite quickly smiley
Now I have made a larger flat area on the lower insert and will glue it again.
I still believe the carbon pipe has the strength. It seems more and more that the problem will be to make the lower shaft insert gluing last.

I'll be on to the next experiment.
