Great site Pat. I’m hoping to maiden my old Easystar this weekend. Got any suggestions?
Hey Harlen, thanks for visiting. The biggest thing with an EZ* is to make sure your cg is correct. It seems like those just fly themselves now, but in reality I crashed mine countless times when I started.
You didn’t mention if you were going to FPV maiden it or not, if so the same rules apply. Make sure you’re in a familiar spot, you know which direction the wind is coming from and double check your control surfaces beforehand. Give it 1/2 to 3/4 throttle and chuck it in the air. I always launch LOS, then will make a circuit and “goggle up” once I have a little altitude. From there on out, it’s just like a video game.
If it is in fact your first FPV flight, it is very important to have a spotter. If no other RC pilots are around, a buddy who listens to you can help. Just make sure to tell them to always keep their eyes on the plane.
I wish you well and that I’ve given you at least a little bit of advice.
Love your site! I’m thinking of putting a Popwing together for FPV and was wondering what motor you like for yours. I’ve got a spare motor for my Zeph sitting around, but that might be overkill… 😉
