DemonRC at Keilor & Districts Model Aircraft Society (KDMAS) - 22/11/15
I enjoyed a long overdue trip out to KDMAS this Sunday morning. Today the weather was glorious with a virtually windless morning, compared with yesterday which was blustery and wet in the morning. KDMAS, to which I have never been before, is reached along the Calder Freeway, M79, just past Tullamarine airport heading out of the city, and is about 20 km out of the city centre.
KDMAS is reached along a track, also leading to Keilor Golf Club. The club is a little exposed, as you will be able to see from the aerial image, and until a couple of months ago had little shade for the helicopter flyers. Now there is an excellent sun shade, and many helicopter flyers are now coming to visit KDMAS. There is a main runway, and 'emergency' runway at 90 degrees to the main, to which the helicopter flyers stay to the right. Altitude restrictions dictate a maximum ceiling of 300 feet given the proximity of Melbourne International Airport. While I was flying, several large jets landed and took off.
Tullamarine Airport in the distance
The images above were taken at about 200, and 75 feet, with a GoPro Hero 3 camera mounted on a Mikado Logo 500 se, controlled with the Bavarian Demon 3SX. This model has been acting as a robust camera platform for about three years now, and in 'stability mode' enables great panoramic images to be taken.
If you are interested in any other information about this set-up or the Logo FBL settings, please contact Andy at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 041 555 6199.
DemonRC at Melbourne Radio Control Helicopter Club (MRCHC) - 28/11/15
On Saturday, 28th November 2015, the Melbourne Radio Control Helicopter Club hosted the Heli Gods Fun Fly. On a glorious day fun was had by all. There was an especially high presence of Goblins, several being 3-bladed, and Compass models, both Chronos and 7HVU including nitro-powered too.
Fred Maidens His Align e700 Long Ranger With BD3SX
After removing the Align 3G from the Long Ranger, with which it was supplied, Fred quickly attached the Bavarian Demon 3SX, confident in its ability to fly his helicopter how he has become accustomed. The supplied 90mm loom was a little tight. but he was able to locate the FBL unit and receiver appropriately.
Fred was giving himself a doubly challenging job to not only set up his Long Ranger with the BD3SX, but to get to grips with the new radio that he had recently upgraded to, the module equipped JR XG11MV. Luckily the Bavarian Demon set up is very straightforward.
After checking over his set up and testing the FBL reactions to moving the Long Ranger in all orientations, Fred bravely took his maiden flight.
Congratulations Fred! This maiden flight was achieved using the default gain settings in the 3SX. Fred was ecstatic to have managed to get his pride and joy flying so well within his abilities, including the Rescue function, of course.
Following are a few aerial photos from his subsequent flights.
There was a very slight tail bobble on the maiden flight with the head gain set at the default 55%, and, therefore, the head gain was reduced down to 52%. The tail gain was left at the default 55%. The head speed used with the Castle Creations Pheonix Ice 120HV was about 1500 rpm using the non-DFC swash-driven head, with stock main gear and pinion.
