so off-duty kerbals got bored recently some of them decided to make down-scaled aircrafts maybe you can build them some? RULES : 1. no tweakscale >:) 2. EDIT : no cockpits comseats, cockpits allowed for aesthetics on huge planes 3. give craft sauce 4. have fun (i decided to make a racing challenge ＳＯＯＮ)
I seem to remember there are a few here who fly rc planes. I come from rc helicopters but planes are a complete mystery to me (for now), and I could use some hints and tips from the guys here who have experience with these things. The plane is an electric 5ch ST Models Beaver with lights on an optional 6th channel (distant plans of separating the lights for 3 channels). My radio gear is an 8ch DX8 with an 8ch rx + satellite. The plane is a high wing full body scale foamie ARTF. Now that it has been assembled, the interior is pretty hard to access for fixing and securing the rx/sat and I toy with the idea of cutting out one passenger door. Issue is, this door is underneath the wing and I'm concerned cutting out the door with weaken the hull strength around the wing attachment points. I know I better fit the rx away from the ESC/motor so having them both in the cabin sounds like a good idea to me but again, getting access there is a PITA., without cutting out the door. Any tips in general on where to fit the rx/sat on a foamie? Does it matter much as the only conductive material of note is 3 carbon rods securing the wings, and both motor and ESC are in the nose (battery compartment). Would it be worth it attaching the rx on the outside? (the aerials are really short on the spektrum receivers) Or would it be a very silly idea, considering the lack of protection there? Any tips mucho welcome!
