Here is a Big Stainless Cross Wrench,it has plenty of other uses beyond removing glow plugs. We hit its Multipurpose,and sure it was the most Jack-of-All-Trades RC Tool.
1. Glow plug
As the name suggests, the glow plug cross wrench removes and installs glow plugs. The long end of the wrench reaches down into the head of a nitro engine where fingers don’t fit and where using the alternative — needle nose pliers — can be frustrating. Pliers don’t always maintain as good a grip on the glow plug as the wrench does. Additionally, some glow plug wrenches have little holes that hold and store spare glow plugs.
2. Ball joints
Found in multiple locations on an RC, ball joints on an RC come in various sizes. Instead of having a bunch of loose wrenches to sort through you can use a multi-purpose glow plug cross wrench with its different size arms, thus saving frustration and saving space in your RC tool box.
Most Ready-to-Run RCs come with a tiny little multi-purpose cross wrench that does everything that a good glow plug wrench does — except for fitting on glow plugs. But it can be way too small for fat fingers to grip. Put on and take off the tires on your RC more easily with the larger glow plug cross wrench.
4. Slipper clutch
Adjusting a slipper clutch is another job for the glow plug cross wrench tool. Turn the little nut on the spur gear to loosen or tighten the drivetrain.
Now a universal Spark Plug born, it can be used for Gas/ Petrol Engine DLE30, DLE55, DLE111, DLA56, DLA32, DLA112, EME55 etc.This is a Good news to share, and now the wholesale price is only US$5.34,it must be the spark plug king,and will be the top seller after Iridium CM6 Spark Plug for DLE Engine (US$6.59)

There are many DIY genius of flyer, and the masterpiece came out in perfect built and is usually fly wonderful, especially those fly by remote controlled. recently just at the beginning of june,2012,the most valuable DIY flyer is Orvillecopter
Orvillecopter, is a work of art transforming a dead cat into a remote controlled helicopter, and was presented at Amsterdam’s KunstRai art fair.
Orvillecopter were created by Dutch artist Bert Jansen after his pet Orville was killed by a car. According to media reports, Jansen kept Orville’s body in a freezer for about six months, before taking him to a taxidermist and attaching a plastic propeller to each of his four paws. Then he put a remote control engine inside the stomach of the cat, and after a few false starts, the “Orvillecopter” achieved lift-off. It did take Jansen a while to get his Orvillecopter to work, as a series of YouTube videos shows. But after a few engine updates and a new speed controller, the Orvillecopter was in good flying form, as you can see from the video below.
The flying cat, has also been heavily criticized by Dutch animal lovers, and has surged by almost 10-fold after generating both headlines and criticism worldwide. In Jansen’s case, it was reported that he decided to turn Orville into an aircraft because his pet cat and its brother Wilbur, which is still alive, had been named after the Wright brothers Orville Wright and Wilbur Wright who invented and built the world’s first successful plane.
The rarest predictable solar event just took place today–the planet Venus across the face of the sun. Here’s a state of why the Transit of Venus 2012 is the rarest predictable solar event?
Venus comes between Earth and the sun five times in the course of every eight years, but because of the inclination of the planets’ orbits, Venus usually misses passing over the sun’s disk, as seen from Earth. In fact, that passing-over phenomenon occurs only twice in the typical person’s lifetime. We had a Venus transit in 2004, and we’re having another one today. The next one won’t come until 2117.
Make sure to safely watch such a rare solar event; you should use a telescope properly.
Projecting the sun’s magnified image through binoculars, or better yet a telescope, on to a white card or screen is relatively safe and can be used for group viewing. For serious transit observing, a telescope with a full-aperture solar filter is much better. These filters are attached to the side of the telescope that faces the sun, not the side facing your eye.
The transit should be watched only with an appropriate solar filter — a solar filter that is sold by a reputable outlet of astronomical equipment. If your telescope comes with a filter those screws into the eyepiece, discard it immediately! These filters have been known to crack under the intense heat of the sun’s magnified image.
Lastly, never look at the sun directly through your telescope, even through your finder scope. It is strongly advisable to cover the finder before the transit, so as to avoid looking through it accidentally.
Somebody recently asked if they could look at the sun through their telescope while wearing a pair of “eclipse glasses” – special filters mounted on cardboard eyeglass frames. The answer is absolutely not! Such a filter is for naked-eye use only! If you try looking through the eyepiece of binoculars or a telescope while wearing these glasses, the concentrated heat from the sun will almost certainly melt a hole through the filtering material, allowing a sudden burst of dazzling sunlight to reach your eye.
Before I share this tip, there are many scientist and skywatchers had made plan for the transit of Venus today, and they did captured many stunning view. Just enjoy my collection：
But pls be sure again you learn the key different of JR servo, Futaba servo, Hitec servo. Just read about the number of teeth in various servo brands. A standard JR servo spline has 23 teeth.
Most Hitec servos’ spline has 24 teeth (standard, mini, micro).
A standard Futaba servo spline has 25 teeth

Retracting the Landing Gear
Sweetest feature of Dynam T-28 Trojan is retracting the Landing Gear, I Would like to share a Retracts demo from Dongskie
Many pilots regard this scale T28 Trojan as trainer/sport plane. Yeah, actually some of them buy this for park flying, because they too busy to the flying field, so this makes this T28 Trojan to be a great gift.
This is a great looking model that is aerobatic capable and will be just as happy performing as a sport plane as it will a scale model, tough, practical, well equipped and cheap to put in the air, the ideal all rounder! It is slow, but some of those enthusiasts of T28 Trojan can push the Dynam Trainer to faster speeds of up to 50 mph! Performance improved again
This scale T-28 Trojan Warbirds made from a high strength EPO-foam for added durability. Powered by a high powered 850KV electric brushless motor and an 11.1v li-poly battery pack that provide up to 20 minutes flight between for each charge.
There are SIX VERSIONS of T28 Trojan on SDSHobby.net
Any small scale representation of a full size airplane is considered to be a model airplane. A number of different varieties of model airplane exist for many different purposes: some are simple plastic models made to be showcased on home mantelpieces, while others are gas or battery powered versions that can actually fly. Today we talk about those are battery powered versions which can fly via remote control.
There was a time when the general public thought that every airplane flying was either a DC-3 or a Piper Cub. More than 20,000 Cubs were built between 1937 – 1947, and for years after that it was the most commonly seen airplane at airports all over the country. Forgiving flight characteristics, light wing loading, and hands-off stability made it perfect for America’s weekend pilots. The Cub design is ideal for R/C flying and makes an excellent first-time project.
The Dynam A-10 Thunderbolt II also known as the Warthog is an American single-seat, twin-engine, straight-wing jet aircraft designed to provide close air support of ground forces. It was the first USAF aircraft designed exclusively for close air support. The Dynam A-10 has superb maneuverability even at low speeds and altitude; this is due to its large wing area, high wing aspect ratio, and large ailerons. This design also enables short takeoffs and landings, allowing it to operate from the smallest and most basic airfields. This model gets power from two Electric Ducted Fan Motors and it comes 90% Ready to Fly. All Servos, receiver and other electronic are preinstalled from factory. Like all the planes in the Dynam range, the Dynam A-10 is finished in the factory to a high standard and represents an excellent replica of the real aircraft.
Dynam Meteor is a High Speed 70mm EDF Sport Jet. The airplane is constructed by EPO and it is Pre-Painted from the factory. All servos, receiver, 70mm Fan and the ESC are Pre-Installed on the model. This airplane is designed for High-Speed flying with a powerful Brushless Electric Ducted-Fan. The Fan Unit is very well constructed for High-Performance flying. This model is absolutely one of the fastest EPO DF-Airplanes in the Market. The RTF version comes with 2.4GHZ radio, Receiver, 70mm Brushless EDF, 60A ECS, Servos, 4S 2600 Li-Po and Li-Po charger. The PnP version comes include everything you need to fly the model Except Transmitter and Receiver. The Building time is around 45 min
These RC Foam electric airplane are constructed by EPO, EPO is durable, flexible, lightweight, and adhesive-friendly foam.The EPO foam is a great all-around performer for your airplane.
Electric RC Models were looked upon as mere toys in the past. But now a RC model powered by light weight energy dense Lipo batteries along with powerful efficient brushless motors can now run neck-to-neck with their glow powered cousins when it comes to power and longevity.
Choosing an RC electric motor for your RC Models isn’t quite as straight forward as ordering the recommended size glow engine. All the different brands, sizes, and specifications can make choosing a motor quite intimidating if you’re new to the hobby.
Understanding the basic fundamentals outlined here is essential for choosing a suitable motor for your models. the more experience you have tinkering with different setups, the more confident you will be when choosing RC electric motors for different types and sizes of RC airplanes…Now just go and learn here
When shopping for RC electric motors, you will need to understand what the following specifications mean.
Voltage Constant Kv is the “Voltage Constant”. This is how many RPM’s the motor turns for each volt applied. Actually, it’s a tad less because motors aren’t 100% efficient.
For example, if you apply 12volts to a 200Kv motor, it will turn at just under (12 x 200) 2400 RPM’s.
Torque Constant Kt is the “Torque Constant”. For all motors, Kt= 1355/Kv. You’ll have to ask someone smarter than me where the 1355 comes from, cause I don’t have a clue! Just accept it for what it is.
In a nut shell, this means the faster the motor spins for a given voltage (Kv), the lower the output torque will be (Kt). Outrunners brushless motors generally have a lower Kv, which in turn produces more torque at a slower speed for spinning those larger props. The opposite is true with inrunners brushless motors
No Load Current
Io is the “No Load Current”. This is the amount of current it takes to spin the RC electric motor with no prop.
For example, if your motor is pulling 25Amps, and the Io is 2Amps, then you really only have 23Amps turning the prop.
Rm is the “Terminal Resistance”. This is the internal resistance of the motor measured in Ohms. The higher the Rm, the less efficient the motor is.
Current and Power
The maximum current and power is what determines how large of a prop and what size plane can be used with the motor. Simply multiply the current by the battery voltage to get power.
The larger the propeller’s diameter and pitch, the more current the RC electric motor will draw for a given RPM. For example, the 200Kv motor will run at 2400 RPM’s regardless of whether it has a 10×6 prop or a 11×5 prop. But, the 11×5 prop will cause the motor to draw more current. Drawing too much current will destroy the motor.
How much power do you need?
The manual for most ARFS and kits these days make it really easy for you by recommending a specific motor. For marketing purposes, they will obviously recommend the specific brand of motors that they are affiliated with. If you’d rather use a different brand all you have to do is find another motor with comparable power and KV rating.
If you don’t have this reference, or are working on a glow to electric conversion, then you’ll need to estimate how much power you will need. It is accepted by most in the hobby that 100 Watts/1b is a good “estimate” for the power required for an average sports/aerobatic RC airplane.
If you plan to fly high alpha 3D maneuvers you would want to bump that up to maybe 150-200 Watts/lb. You may want to lower this number for a high lift trainer type airplane. But 100 watts/lb is a good starting point if you going at it blind.
What ESC to use?
Once you have chosen a suitable RC electric motor for your Models you will need to choose the battery and electronic speed controller. Choosing an ESC is rather straight forward. Remember that an ESC made for brushed motors can’t be used with brushless motors, and vice versa.
You need to choose an ESC that has a higher power rating that the maximum current the motor can pull. The ESC you choose also must be rated for the voltage of the battery. More than likely you’ll be using Lipo batteries, so you will want to make sure the ESC has a Low Voltage Cutoff.
Sizing the Battery
One of the quickest ways to damage a battery is to pull too much current from it. Every battery pack is rated for a maximum amount of current which is determined by the C rating. The C rating multiplied by the capacity of the battery gives you the maximum discharge rate of the battery.
When choosing a battery it is crucial that you choose a battery pack that has a higher maximum discharge rate than the maximum current draw of the motor.

Why Converted model with gas engines to electric motors?
*There are a lot more kits designed for gas power than for electric power. Face it！
*Nearly any gas plane can be converted to electric power effectively. That’s Fine！
*There are many pilot have been flying and building radio controlled airplanes, helicopters, boats and cars for near half life. I have been specifically building and flying electric airplanes for over 10 years. Latest interest, follow it！
*This has been more realistic to do lately because of the huge leap in battery technology and it has been a very fun way to still make balsa kit planes from scratch, but not worry about any gas problems. Trust it！
Here’s an idea of what to look for: Type of plane: Any plane with ‘plenty of wing’ makes an excellent choice for conversion since the wing loading will still be reasonable even if the plane turns out a little heavy. If the plane will fly at high speeds (i.e. a sport-aerobatic design or pylon racer), a low drag design is desirable. Simply put, an effective electric plane is one that flies nicely at 1/3 to 1/2 throttles. Type of construction: Most gas planes are hideously overbuilt. Many popular ‘easy to build’ kits make use of heavy plywood fuselage sides etc where it is not needed or wanted in an electric. Some kit designs are better than others.
If you have a basic understanding of how model planes work, this process is straightforward. It is important that you understand the basics of power-to-weight ratios and balance points
RC Eagle Kiteis pretty much what it sounds like. That is, a kite shaped like a big eagle fitted with RC (radio control) receiver and pulled through the air with a propeller. In structure, it has a lot in common with kites and yet it is flown around like an RC plane.

The biggest full moon of the year,a so-called “Supermoon“ on Saturday has come and gone. There are many people noticed they had missed seeing the dazzling lunar. Some people were too busy indoors to see the Supermoon, and in some areas, weather got in the way. Some people were happened to outdoors and noticed the moon are super full, but there is no a camera or telescope available. But there are still many skywatcher enthusiasts snapped the best moment of the Supermoon via their telescope, and now those photos are coming into force by people from different areas. No matter which part of the planet the photos came from, they look pretty dramatic. Below are just some of my collection photos from friends and some are really shock
Below is the HOT Skywatcher must-have Astronomical Telescopes, they are on sale by SDS Hobby:
James Ballard does an excellent job of talking you through each step of the most common aerobatic maneuvers with his great videos listed below. we would like to share his skills to more friends of sdshobby
A great way to learn and perfect these maneuvers without risking your plane is to practice on a RC flight simulator.
Some simulators have built in instructors who will step you through each maneuver. It’s just like having James here at your side stepping you through each aerobatic maneuver as you try them.
Make sure you have plenty of altitude when performing aerobatic flight maneuvers for the first time. These maneuvers may look easy, but the art of RC aerobatics is to execute each maneuver perfectly! A skilled pilot such as James makes it look all too easy. But believe me, it takes tons and tons of practice to execute these maneuvers perfectly.
The Inside Loop is one of the easiest RC aerobatic maneuvers. While flying into the wind at full throttle, gently apply elevator. Hold the elevator until the airplane rounds the top of the loop and becomes inverted. Cut the throttle to 1/4 or less as the airplane reaches the top of the loop.
Let the airplane free fall downward while holding the elevator. The goal is to reach the bottom of the loop at precisely the place where the airplane entered the loop.
It is very important to cut the throttle at the top of the loop. Many airplanes, especially trainers, are not designed for high G-forces and the wings will fold! Trust me, I learned this lesson the hard way…
While flying into the wind, apply a touch of elevator while applying either left or right aileron. When the airplane begins to roll you will need to add a touch of opposite rudder to keep the airplane straight. When the airplane becomes inverted you must apply slight down elevator to keep the airplane level.
If you are just learning, rolling with ailerons does not absolutely require opposite rudder. Without rudder input the roll will be “wobbly” and not straight. To perform a perfect barrel roll you will have to practice working the elevator and rudder together as the airplane rolls.
Believe it or not, these videos are actually not real, they’re videos taken from an RC simulator!
The Stall Turn is also known as the “Hammerhead”. Start this maneuver by pulling the airplane into a vertical climb. Cut the throttle completely while applying full rudder. Apply slight down elevator to keep airplane straight as it spins around 180 degrees. Once the airplane has spun around, release the rudder as the airplane enters a dive.
Aerobatic Knife Edge
The Knife Edge maneuver is nothing more than flying the airplane on its side. You begin this maneuver by rolling the airplane onto its side with either left or right aileron. Once on its side, apply elevator in the opposite direction as the aileron was applied.
The rudder is what keeps the airplane in the air at this point. The rudder acts in the same way as the elevator does during level flight.
The Immelman Turn is an easy aerobatic maneuver. You start by performing a half loop. Apply either left or right aileron once you reach the top of the half loop to roll the airplane right-side-up. Complete this aerobatic RC maneuver by exiting with straight and level flight.
Aerobatic Split S Turn
This RC aerobatic maneuver is just the opposite of the Immelman Turn. Begin this maneuver with straight and level flight. Use the ailerons to roll 180 degrees. Once the airplane is inverted apply up elevator to perform a half loop. Finish this aerobatic RC maneuver by exiting with straight and level flight.
Aerobatic Cuban 8
Begin this RC aerobatic maneuver by performing 2/3 of a loop while headed into the wind. Exit the loop inverted, then roll 180 degrees. Continue into a second 2/3 loop. Exit the loop inverted and roll 180 degrees.
How to Perfect Aerobatic Maneuvers
The best and cheapest way to perfect these aerobatic maneuvers is to invest in a flight simulator.
Although simulators may seem expensive, they will actually save you a lot of money and grief by allowing you to train
your thumbs without putting your model at risk. Think about it, if practicing with a sim saves you just one crashed plane, it’s already paid for itself!
Each year simulators get more advanced with better physics and graphics. You can save a fair amount of money by
picking up an older simulator on Ebay. You can’t go wrong with Phoenix or RealFlight. Esky makes a very affordable
low end sim if your strapped for cash.

Hi, folks, what kinds of remote control boats are you driving? Do you know the level and scale of your RC Boat? If you have no idea about this, the flowing is a complete Classification of Remote Control Boats, I think is the best reference
Sport boats. Sport remote control boats are the most popular type among hobbyists.
Scale boats. These are replicas of full-size boats. Models can be only a few inches long, or weigh up to hundreds of pounds. The more skillful the builder, the more the model will resemble the original, with details such as planked decks, chrome or brass fittings, and cloth flags.
Sailboats. Like their full-size counterparts, remote control sailboats catch the wind with their sails to move around. Models are usually controlled with a multi-channel radio transmitter. Sailboats come in a wide range of sizes – some even tower over 4 feet above the water.
Racing boats. These boats are designed for maximum speed and maneuverability. There are two main types of racing hulls – three-point hydros and V-hulls, which require different water conditions.
Power boats. These are usually electric or internal combustion, while some are steam-powered. Powered remote control boats often have additional remote controlled functions to improve realism, such as sounding fog horns and rotating radar antennae. Power boats come in RTR (ready-to-run), ATR (almost ready-to-run), and kit versions.
Combat boats. Combat boats are an offshoot of the radio control model warships hobby that involves the firing of projectiles at opposing ships to sink or damage them. They are actually designed to be sinkable.
Airboats. These boats are powered by an airplane engine and prop mounted high above the stern. Their hull bottoms are, if not nearly, flat. Steering power may come from a water rudder, vanes on the fan, or both.
Deep V-Hulls. As their name suggests, these boats have hulls in the shape of a V, usually 150 degrees or less. They are capable of slicing through rough, choppy waters while maintaining their speed.
There are many types of RC airplanes available,find out what interests you the most is not a easy job. As a professional RC hobby wholesaler, SDSHobby always supply popular top-level RC airplanes since years of 2007, and today we recommend Extra Electric EPP Aerobatics 3D Airplanes Kit, which is most in type airplane during years of 2012, and that is also the desired type from our customers.
EPP- -Lightweight, Resistant and Cheap
The product is mainly made of EPP material (EPP is more resistant to solvent than is EPS (Styrofoam, depron, fanffold, bluecor)), light-weight and resistant. Due to this special material, serious demage would not be caused by slight faulty operation. The revolutionary design adds to the structural intensity and the rigidity of the airframe which is even made of EPP material, while ensuring the flight more stable and easier controlled. Light-weight design provides optimal Wing loading while ensuring the permanently strength of the craft. This characteristic contributes to the perfect flying performance
3D &Aerobatics — Perform Specific Aerial Maneuvers
Extra Aircraft is well known for it can perform 3D maneuvers, for this EPP Aerobatics 3D Airplanes, the composition and the proportion are well matched to provide excellent flying characteristics, while still allowing for precision aerobatic performance and 3D maneuverability. Simple design allows for easy access and installation. And all necessary accessories are provided in the package. The color schemes are painted with new oil paint which makes the color fresher and permanent. Its small size excels at flying on a limited open space, such as park. It also fits into a very small car for transport.

To Start a Fun Night Flying, it is important to understand some basic concepts about Night Flying and lighting system for RC Aircraft
RC Night Flying is the act of flying a radio-controlled model airplane at night! I do not know when the practice of night flying began, but I would assume it has been rather recent in the history of model aviation. With advances in technology producing more powerful engines and lighter components, it is now possible for a small aircraft to carry the additional components necessary to illuminate an aircraft in flight. After all, if you can’t see it, you can’t fly it.Then Turn to the real problem: how to illuminate an aircraft in the dark?
The best way to illuminate an aircraft is to put lights on the aircraft. And in order to do this, one needs a light source and a power source (to power the lights). If your power source is a battery pack, it is not advisable to use the same batteries to power your lights that are being used to power your receiver! This is an accident waiting to happen.
One of the simplest (yet least elegant) solutions is to use LED Light Belt to light up the airplane. This has the advantages of being economical (LED Light Belt are cheap,about 5usd/mtr), Extremely light weight,quick to set up, and they require no power source. Their disadvantages, however, include additional weight to the aircraft, disruption of the airflow over the aircraft surfaces (increasing drag and altering flight characteristics), and limited life span. Light Belt will not shed enough light on the aircraft to make the actual airframe visible in the sky, so all you will see will be the Light Belt. Therefore, it is important to arrange the Light Belt – and enough of them – in a particular pattern so that you can discern the orientation and heading of the aircraft in the dark.
One’s perspective of an aircraft in the dark is much different than during the day, because during the day you can see the aircraft. At night, all that is visible is a pattern of lights. The first few flights at night should be simple ones (take off, fly around in circles, and land), because the first few flights will be lessons in orientation. And it is important to be very familiar with flying an aircraft during the day before taking the same aircraft up at night. This way, it makes it easier to predict where the plane should be headed and how it should be oriented after issuing control inputs. You will need to be able to predict the movements of your aircraft until you become familiar with the new perspective that the nighttime offers.
Flying with LED Light Belt is probably the simplest (or at least the quickest) way to get started. Finding someone to go with you who has done it before is particularly beneficial(check out RC night flying video on youtube), especially if they have a night fly plane ready to go and are willing to let you fly it. After you try night flying, you are destined to get hooked on it, and then after some practice, you can progress to more elegant and advanced lighting systems and configurations.
Enjoy video of Trex 600 RC Heli Night Flying
The bottom line is, if you can make your aircraft (or its outline) visible in the dark, then you can fly it. I suppose you could fly at night using a pair of night vision goggles, but this is something I have not yet tried (but would love to).
Night flying is a practice and it can be an art that stands on its own. A number of RC enthusiasts have come up with some varied and creative solutions. Some solutions are deceptively simple, whereas others are rather complex. I had witnessed many real night flying video and shocked by their awesome flying
Plan a night flying you need to learn other information regarding safety,lighter components and configuring lighting system. To make a model aircraft for maximum visibility and efficiency, you need learn from others’ night flying history and advanced topics. All these I mention also will be present to you, now the most important thing you can do before making your first flight at night would be to relax, close your eyes, and imagine your first night flight.
