Like what , fitting a camera and flying on unchartered area to identify the trail? Smart move Sha.

We need to find first an airfield to takeoff and land too near the OTR trail.

Dwarak
Very true. Seeing your involvement and the videos I am hooked now.

Thanks a lot for your kind messages.

Mr. Bangalore,

Nice video. Helicoptor flying is much more trickier than plane itself.

Yes. In real flying business also it is the same and the training for flying a helicopter is much more expensive.

I always imagined myself flying an actual plane (thanks to few hollywood movies !) but had tough times landing it in dreams !. Somehow helicopter always reminds me of spraying pesticides to the rubber plantations (kerala and TN). Youtube has plenty of videos including the filmstars Ajith and Madhavan enjoying this hobby. Somewhere I read Madhavan has half a dozen of RC planes and helicopters.

I understand this is a hobby getting popular as days pass. Its not economical too ! My first attempt is to get invited by someone to atleast see it in real, then I could think about the practicalities.

Wow, that was quick ! Thanks for the good heart, I will surely make it, probably with my 3.5 yrs old boy (if kids are allowed). Jakkur is very close to me as I stay close to Hebbal flyover.

I dont see any reason why this thread should be on the motorsports forum. Must move to Shifting gears or Radio control Aircrafts thread.

I checked this after a long time, AND I'M happy that there are AERO- Hobbyfolks on tbhp, I had made an entry last year some time and didn't hear from anyone, untill they merged a bunch of aero threads - GOOD!
hope to see more action and I must say Great Planes and Great pilots.
Thanks Ajo for that affirmation. R/C is a great Hobby or shall we call it insanity

The result, ordered for a kit - ARF (Almost Ready to Fly) on the net. Got one, in bits and pieces, got taken for ride by vendor from chennai. Time lag of one and a half year after getting first consignment, finally was ready to fly.

Engaged a trainer - Vijay Gupta in Bangalore and went for first view of flying to Hoskote Lake bed. He and another gentleman had their models flying.

Model spec:

Trainer - high winger of 60' wing span
Engine - .56 ( 9 cc engine) of JBA Make
Transmitor - Futaba 6 channel
Fuel - Glow fuel , a mixture of methanol 75 % and caster Oil 25 %
First set of batteries for transmiter and receiver - Duracell

A weekend next was my model ready to fly. Warmed up the engine. Maiden flight took off without any hiccups. followed two more flights of 12- 13 minutes each. Excitement is unimaginable. Once on air, the transmitter was given to me to flight control. Burned the fuel completely in air. Now the transmitter is handed over to the Trainer. He brings the model in gliding mode to land.

some pictures are given below:

Default Any RC Aeromodellers in Team BHP?

Just got my hands on 2 RC aeromodels. These are the two high wing Arising Star ARFs which the vendor assembled and delivered to us. We have the full where with all to operate the models as far as hardware is concerned, but are lacking in training. The vendor gave us a demo on the models when he delivered it to us and I had a few basic hands on moments with a similar aeromodel, in which I managed the take off and basic straight and level as well as turns, but I am yet to try a landing and since a crash is going to cost us about 35G I don't really want to try it on my own.
Does any one have any ides of some one who can come over to Bidar and train us on the birds? Accommodation and the like will be taken care of and we will be ready to pay for the services of the trainer. I expect us to be comfortable with the birds in about 7 days.
Any leads people?

Default Re: Miniature Remote controlled Airplanes & Aeromodelling

The child in me woke up last weekend and I got myself this humongous battery operated chinese heli. You can see the comparison with the mobile phone in the pics just to get an idea how big this is. This thing needs a large area to fly and the frontyard of our house was not enough that I kept crashing into the plants in the garden even trimming the leaves in the bargain. On the first charge the battery lasted for almost half an hour, hope the duration lasts longer on further usage.

As the pics speak, its got leds in the 'missiles' as well as headlights. Heli battery is rechargeable and has a connector which can be disconnected when the chopper is not in use for long periods. The whole unit is lightweight and the rotating blades are as loud as a vaccuum cleaner. I love this thing!
