    Finally got the PBY flying. Shes a great flying machine once dialed in. Took 6oz of lead in the nose along with the 2 3000mah 3s packs in parallel. Might call her the lead sled. But man what a beautiful flyer.

    Alclad is some awesome paint for replicating metal parts. When I build my 90mm F-104, that is going to be the ticket for sure!!!!

    Hey Y'all, Designed new pylons, build mods made, ordinance printed, with most assembly & painting complete, then a few markings and mounting on the F-4 Phantom. Acknowledgements and special thanks to DirtyDee, Apmech1 and Crxmanpat for their original work with all the ordinance designs, You Guys Rock! All my mods were for size, fit, mounting, and variants, but without your original work none of that would look as good as it does. Bravo Zulu. I will post pictures in the F-4 forum with everything mounted and then its on to the check flight. WooHOO! Best, LB

    Finished the wing electronics install. Going to replace the floats with fresh printed ones, just have these old ones on for place holders. This new printer is night and day better than my old one.

    Yeah ill need to look into some power options. Im thinking i may just run a small 2s life pack.

    Another option is to power the receiver from 2 ESCs (twin engine) or from an external BEC and ESC BEC. This requires soldering 2 schottky diodes into a Y-harness (bus tie circuit). I did this on my A330, and it gives power redundancy if an ESC were to burn out, the other one will still power the receiver.

    Sorry for your loss, man. There is a simple way to protect against BEC failures causing crashes like yours. This is what I do in my ME-262... I bought a small 4.8v NiMh battery pack (200 mah or so) and connected it in parallel with the BEC output. Because the BEC outputs 5 volt and the battery is 4.8 volts their is no effect on the BEC whatsoever. The BEC in fact will slowly charge the battery over time. However, if the BEC fails then the battery continues to provide power to the radio and servos allowing for a safe landing. It's basically foolproof...just connect the battery after the BEC is powered up and then disconnect the battery after the flight.

    It is more difficult to print at least some of the 3DLabPrint planes in Cura isn't it? I have S3D as well and I think it was a worthwhile investment of $150.
