  • HSDJET T-33
    Just put together my HSD T-33. After completing all connections and hookups, I turned the model on to find everything works fine and is operable. But the ESC continues to just beep. I checked the throttle connection and found nothing. I looked under the MC2085 board to find the lead wire from ESC was in AUX5-2 which is wrong, I changed it to AUX6 for throttle. It continues to only beep. What am I doing wrong? I did a factory reset and still, it only beeps. HELP?

      RM, Not certain many can assist you with your binding issue here at the Squawk. I'd check the HSD website, (See Link Above) and look for a "Support" page. You might try starting a forum page here and see if that helps. Good luck, Sir. Best, LB
      Captain: Got any ideas?
      F/O: Actually not.

        Sometimes you need to make sure your throttle trim is all the way down and if that don't work maybe lower your throttle end points, if that still doesn't do it, reverse your throttle channel and see what happens, I just set mine up and did have to lower the throttle trim to get the ESC working, I fly with Futaba and thats all I had to do, got 18 flights on it now, flies great.

        • UPDATE: I calibrated the throttle/ESC by doing the following:

          Turn on the radio, turn on the MFC (esc battery lines UNPLUGGED). Everything should be on now except the ESC.
          Put your throttle stick to high and plug in the ESC batteries. It will make a different beeping tone. Lower the throttle to zero. It'll beep again. It should be calibrated and initialize now.
          Working just fine now. I post just in case any one else runs into this! I love the great help Hobby Squawk provides...it takes a village! Thanks again.

            • About 7 years ago I bought my first foamie Mustang a 1450mm wingspan version in silver by Lanyu models.( they probably do not exist anymore) It came with fixed gear and no flaps and it has flown as a trouble free all year round flyer since.. The last couple of weeks have been cold and windy so I decided to repaint . This coming Easter we are having an Easter Fun Fly at DDMAC complete with target egg bomb drop and I have adapted the model to do same and had my first three successful bomb run flights today on a calm sunny day with a steady 3 deg C temperature. I am now putting together a crack aerobatic team, the Red Friars(photo below). The facial expressions could be because I stuck holes in them and blew out their brains with a straw. It worked however as there were no breakages as the Friars hit the target field. The shells weigh around 8gms each . Of course not only do I get a crack non parachute team but I also get a cake and some scones from the donated brains

              • Finally Marvin put the video/photos together that I shot for the Banana Hobby Gulfstream website. I didn't want to put this in the PJ50 thread, but these 2 aircraft are almost identical (except the BH comes with a gyro) and I am quite confident that they will fly almost identically. This airframe's slow flight and overall stability is outstanding and seems to land like a kitten, possibly quite different from the AL37. We ended up getting over 10 minutes of flight time on an SMC 6200 and if I remember correctly, about 7:30 on an SMC 5300. Those of you waiting for your delivery of the PJ50 should definitely be excited. I know xviper already has his and posted a nice video so check that out as well if you're interested to see how your "incoming" Freewing Gulfstream will most likely fly.

                • Engaged in some dogfight action with an L-39 in a Sirius. The jets are hard to see in a head-on merge, so small and flash by in a split second. My brain did not even register fast enough to turn my head on the fast pass

                  • Had an excellent evening of flying at Thunderbird Field today, including the a few flights on the newly completed 500 size SA-341 Gazelle featuring a fully 3D printed fuselage.

                    • Got out today and was fortunate enough to maiden my first turbine jet. Pilot RC Dolphin running a Swiwin80. It was just fantastic! The Maiden went well and the weather was good enough to do it in Montana in February. Had to take advantage of it while we had it as now 8 hours later we have 4-6 inches of snow and it's only 15-20 degree's out.

                      Yes I had two waivered turbine pilots one of which is a CD with me doing the buddy box. Everything for my Turbine endeavor is 100% following the guide lines to avoid any issues!

                                We got the lawn mowers and field lipo charging batteries out just in time. It will be a few days before we can get in to clean up the cabins .I might dig out my first r,c model boat I made about 60 years ago, a WW2 RAF air sea rescue boat the 28 inch long ply and balsa Vernon Vosper

                                  • The waters have subsided so its back to flying next week. I have just finished my latest reincarnation of an old classic. Can you name this plane ?

                                    • Back end looks like a T-34, front end looks like a super chipmunk. And landing gear is weird…

                                      • I brought out an FMS Bf109F from mothball to fly FPV from cockpit. Got all the bits installed but too chicken to fly FPV in it yet. All line of sight flights end with scraping the wing tip (protectors). Will need to toe out the gear to see if that helps.

                                        By the way, the Bf-109 has got to be the least represented model in RC fields. They are the most produced fighter aircraft ever yet Flightline has no model of one. Flightline has two FW’s already: the FW-190 and TA-152H. The glaring hole is in FL line up is a Messerschmidt 109F or G to dogfight the Spitfire MkIX. I would love to see one from Flightline!

                                          correct I rescued an old 1900mm Seagull models T34 C that was about to be burned by the owner, It weighed 6.2kg with a lot of lead in the nose. and few like a dog, The heavy weight and short triangulation of the original model wheels lead to it flipping over on taxi, .broke the canopy, bust the cowl etc and the owner got fed up with it so i decided to have a go at a taildragger version with extended nose and fixed gear, The canopy is made from the surviving bits of the old canopy with a rear scuttle in balsa added I reworked the cowl to fit the new model. I had the 4 oleos so I went for double oleo fixed gear as the oleos I had were not strong enough for single leg gear. I had a couple of unused analogue standard size servos for elevator and rudder and steerable tail wheel.(old used small oleo) New 5055 430 kv motor 1500watt, 62amp on 6s. ( about 150wattsper pound in old money ), prop, spinner 125 amp esc, coveriing , rods, horns main alloy wing tube etc etc It sort of evolved over winter. It now weighs 4,6kg, no ballast required, flys better, floats on in to the grass field and handles the grass up to 2 inch long in winter no problem
