  1. From the manual concerning hot running Installation / Mounting When installing the Unify Pro, please ensure adequate airflow and - most importantly - heat transfer. This means mounting the Unify Pro with a bit of pressure against a flat piece of carbon will give you the best results. Proper mounting will allow the video transmitter to run for extended periods of time while sitting on the ground, both with 25mW and 200mW power levels. On 500mW / 800mW power levels, we recommend to start flying after a maximum of 1 minute, so that the airflow can begin to provide adequate cooling. When video transmitters heat up they start transmitting with less output power. There is also chance of the power supply circuit overheating. Don't worry, the Unify Pro will detect excess heat and shut down until it recovers. But that will also mean the video transmitter will not transmit. If you are experiencing that the video transmitter shuts down, check your installation. Ensure that heat can be drained well and make sure that there is a bit of airflow access to your VTx.
  2. Just check the body screws on the back of the AR8000. They should be tiny Torx socket caphead screws in a Spektrum. Other copies had tiny Philips screws.
  3. Looking good Toto. Just a note now on setting up. We now have amazing computer radio for small increments of movement. But start off with all movement Trims at Zero. Set the travel now mechanically to have equal throw, left and right rudder, up and down elevator, and ailerons with equal deflection. Lots of trial and error picking optimum holes in horns and servo arms. Only then compute the finer requirements.
  4. Also With the computer OFF Have the dongle plugged in to your highest rated computer USB prior to start up. In short, have the dongle in at Start Up.
  5. Have stood with two separate lads successfully taking their " B " Certificates with the Boomerang Toto, That lovely Wing profile does actually produce lift and can be flown very well.
  6. I don't own one, but have flown one Bob, and is very agile, with the wide chord wing and short moment arm. Very good at low speed and will teach you lots. On take off, do not hike the nose up with too much "UP" elevator as the tail will hit the ground. Go off steady, with progressive throttle until the wing gains lift and gets it off safely; you can hike it up all you want then, when the tail is well clear of the ground.
  7. No supplier prop adaptor Tosh, but I use Prop Savers indoors with the rubber ring mount to let the prop bend in an incident The Te!ink kit was from Robotbirds, known also as BRC models
  8. We fly Indoor in 2 weeks and I will get more pics then. these 9grm motors from Banggood are great from 6 amp to 10 amp, On 5 x 3 to 6 to 3 props from 35W to 50 Watts I copied these ARTF in depron, using this motor The EPP is very durable and weighs 100 grams loaded with 3 servos, Rx and 350ma lipo I copied these ARTF in depron
  9. Just looked Halsey, On YouTube Loads of modellers showing pipe work for bench running
  10. Have spent years developing indoor models just like this Tosh, and depending on average sized halls, you are in the large and fast class with this model but is doable.. The best flyers I have made are 2S two cell lipo 200 - 300mah, with small brushless outrunner, 6A - 12A ESC, at 16 - 20 inch span, and Flat bottom wing or flat plate wing for lift, weighing 3.5oz or Less !!! Your model is flyable, but will need to be kept moving quickly with that wing profile indoors. The 12A for 2S is ok, and the servos, but 5.5oz will fly fast Practice outdoors 1st
  11. I know half of the properties contained in this can, you stipulated unwanted Mike, but over the years, this is the flatest densest white I ever used, and can be left flat Matt white, or gloss varnish spray. I use it purely a flat Matt white. t
  12. Amazon Frank, but singles can be expensive. From time to time, multibuys appear with much reduced singles price.
  13. Have always had small 4 strokes on the go since starting out with I/C and a 30 size, On a good day, with the wind behind it, new plug and fresh fuel develops about 370W, which leccy flyers find useful in decision making. Best plan is to expect 300 watts at this stage so weight is as always your enemy. Build light and strong, and enjoy these wonderful small motors. Build around a 4oz tank, as a 30 will run economically quite a while, I land at the 12 minute buzzer. Carry 9 x 5 - 10 x 6 props
