Re: Helicopters C

Has anyone found a sturdy box that fits within carry-on size restrictions and can hold an FF heli? I can't seem to find one online. Just use a small sized reinforced cardboard box from Home Depot or something like it. Ye, I think as long as you block wind from it and you are not shaking it this sho...

Re: Best Times

Yeah, the Armory's ceiling is ridiculously high, inflating all of the flight times. A couple other quick notes: 3. The winning score appears in the vicinity of 500. I don't want to do the math to estimate the probable flight time :roll: , so...if that helps. I think that's a bit north of 3:05? It's...

I'd bet that only top 6 will have a time greater than 3 min.
EDIT: top 6 not 4

Re: Helicopters C

Very very impressive. Did you guys find any modifications to the FFM kit to be helpful, or were you able to get a 3 minute time without modding the original plans? Here are a few: 1. Don't put any CF Tow on the horizontal spreaders. 2. Sand down ribs as much as possible. 3. Sand down the edges on t...

Re: Best Times

Can you clarify what you mean by this? I'm a bit confused by where the x's should go. Yes! You start off by looking at the motor stick below the middle (Doesn't matter how you orientate as long as you are consistent). You make a dot with a sharpie 1.5 cm down from the horizontal wood piece on both ...
