UK Regional / Re: The South East Flyers Thread Part 3

Love the ground spanking at 2min 56  ;D

I had a flirtation with Galloping Ghost in the 1960s.  I had success with it but I can't honestly say it was a whole lot of fun.  The level of control was not exactly precise, and the models, whilst flying, always looked like they were suffering from Parkinson's Disease.

On the other hand, it was quite amazing to see how far single channel radios could be pushed in the quest for a higher level of sophistication.

Hey ho.

Next up was the wing mount on the fuselage;

The wing ribs were printed and then stuck to the ply, then cut-out and epoxy'd into place (using the brass tube to get the correct alignment.
The gaps were then filled in roughly with balsa bits then sanded.
I then used P38 car filler (thx to Chris Williams for that tip), to get the final shape.

Total fuselage weight so far 357g

Golden Age, vintage and antique RC / Re: Galloping-Ghost on 2.4ghz!
« Last post by Phil_G on March 17, 2019, 23:31:14 PM »
Just an update, I've done a new Galloping-Ghost recoder based on the ultra-cheap DigiSpark board.
Although it uses a different processor and a completely different software technique, its
been honed to mimic the PIC recoder exactly, so the two are interchangeable.
At 3/4" square its slightly larger than the PIC recoder (which is as small as it possibly could be)
and uses the same DRV8838 bridge.   This enables anyone to build one from scratch.
Tobe is still doing his Rand actuator clones which match the recoder perfectly and this
combination creates a full Galloping Ghost setup using any conventional R/C set.

DigiSparks are readily available from ebay:

The DRV8838 bridge is also on ebay:

Here's Otto using a 'new-age GG' system:

Jet Turbines / Huge 20ft Avro Vulcan, Valiant an Victor Bombers fly together
« Last post by DominicM on March 17, 2019, 18:30:19 PM »
Take a ride onboard the huge Avro Vulcan Bomber flown by Dave Johnson, UK Large Model Association (LMA) Chairman. After he gets in the air the Valiant and Victor bombers flown by his son and grandson, Andy and Adam, take off and catch up for some formation flying.

This is a regular video containing 360 panoramic clips that have been animated to capture the optimum action.

The Avro Vulcan is powered by four 100N turbine engines and has a 20 foot wingspan !
