Spent the day at Old Warden near Biggleswade Beds, good fun watching the planes, especially the old bipes struggling with the strong and very gusty winds!!

At under £120 with brushless motor, ESC and servos it had to be done.
The Wot series of planes from Chris Foss are well known among RC pilots, especially the British ones. The Wot4 being one of the best flying models ever created, the first version over 25 years ago.

Came away from this one with a face like a beetroot and forearms to match… Can definitely tell our 2 days of summer have arrived.
As requested by kevinhines of RCGroups, some close ups and a little detail of the motor mount and undercarriage on my EasyStar.

I have now installed the CDHK software on my Canon Ixus75 and a intervalometer script to automatically take a pic every 10 seconds. I still only have the camera taped to the side of the fuselage, but, it still gives some interesting results.

Since the Multiplex EasyStar seems to be the aerial photography platform of choice for many, I decided to give one a go.
Fitted with a 3800mAh LiPo and a 22-12-10T brushless motor from BRC Hobbies it climbs almost vertically, and will fly for around an hour, which, to me at least seems quite ridiculous…

I went out to test out my new nose camera mount on my twin star, but one of the aileron servos decided to go up and stay there, and on the one short flight I managed to set the camera to stills mode… So I recored the Slow Stick flying with some red kites.
CoG was a bit far back making it a little sensitive, and a little hard to fly level, but thats an easy fix, other flight characteristics are nothing short of perfect.
Instead of having a single aileron servo hanging from the bottom of the wing, I embedded 2, 1 per aileron. The observant among you may notice the slight mistake in the under wing stripes… oops.
Brilliant airshow as usual, despite not being able to get anywhere near the flight line.
You may also be able to tell, this was a show for watching rather than taking photos…
