General Discussion / MAKING CHILI THE KRCM WAY
« on: January 15, 2019, 09:00:05 PM »
OK, I promised to divulge the recipe for my KRCM chili con carny, so here it is in picture form.  Enjoy making and eating it. If you have any questions or comments please, feel free to contact me, or just leave a response here.

PS, Yes it is a big pot, and yes I am standing on a stool.


OOPS, MY BAD. This is a ultralite Nieuport replica not a Camel.

For those of you who could not attend the 2018 Warbirds Rally, here is a short video showing a Ultralite Nieuport doing a couple low and slow fly by's.
Please enjoy. here is the link.

General Discussion / FUN CUB LANDING GEAR
« on: October 15, 2018, 06:18:08 PM »
For all you folks out there with Fun Cubs, Rolly gave me some plywood plates he designed and cut out using his laser cutter. I will have them with me in my vehicle

I think I have a solution for the zero throttle position problem. It requires 2 logic “AND” Functions and an “OR” function as a latch. The logic works so that the throttle stick must be at the idle position before the throttle arm switch is enabled.

I am still working at programming it into my Graupner, but will keep you posted as I get it working.

Here is a very short video I took on June 9, 2018 using my Mobius camera mounted on the wing of my Fun Cub showing some of the features and area around the Deseronto Float Fly site.  The abrupt landing was caused by me using an uncharged battery.... MY BAD.

Sorry, but the quality of the upload turned out very poor compared to the original.

FPV at KRCM / Good quality FPV video recording
« on: March 28, 2018, 10:24:12 AM »
Here is a FPV flight as recorded by the Mobius camera built in SD card.  This camera is plugged into a docking station which transmits it via 5.8 Ghz to my goggles.  The image transmitted to my goggles is the image I use to fly the airplane and is recorded as received by the goggles.  The image captured by my goggles is quite adequate to fly with but the video recorded directly by the camera is at least 4 times better.
Here is a video showing what the camera itself sees.....

Here is what I see to fly the plane after it has been sent through the transmitter and receiver and displayed in my goggles.

Here is a quick little Youtube clip taken with my Mobius camera inside the KRCM club house showing some of the people who attended our club Chili Fest.

As the band, channel and therefore the frequency of all video transmitters used in FPV can be easily changed, I propose for the time being that each KRCM club member who is interested in flying FPV at our field select an individual frequency to use. As an example, I have selected Band "B", Channel "4" which is "5790".

I therefore propose that we use the included frequency chart as a starting point.


Here is a HD video taken from my nephew Jared LeMay's Typhoon drone.  Cliff Smith and Jay Kingston will probably be interested in this drone's eye view of the field.  It shows Cliff doing a pre giant scale test flight of Jay's giant stick..

The video doesn't have sound, but is in high def..

FPV at KRCM / Flying Crash Mystery
« on: August 09, 2017, 09:39:56 AM »
I was doing a test FPV flight using a FPV camera/transmitter combination on loan to me from Leading Edge Hobbies.  For the first time, I was using my red and white Canada Day mini-buckle #2 when for no apparent reason it went out of control.  I wasn't that far away, when it went in.  Maybe you can tell what happened from the video.

If yu pause the video and scroll frame by frame towards the end, you will see a few frames of what I saw at the last few seconds. About 27 seconds from the end.

Her is the link on youtube.

FPV at KRCM / flying at Varty lake video
« on: July 19, 2017, 01:05:17 PM »
Just wanted folks to see what the planes see when float flying on Varty lake.  The ultra lite runway orientation and the circle road really show up well. I did not fly using FPV, but recorded the visual flight with my HD Mobius camera mounted on the top of my fun Cub wing.  This camera has sound, and it turned out great. There is enough vibration through the foam to make it sound like an airplane engine.  Enjoy

Here is a video of me following Rolly on Thursday July 6, 2017.  note the dense forest at the east end of the field.

go to you tube.

Thanks to every one for coming out and enjoying the great weather and flying at the KRCM float fly on Varty Lake. Thanks to Joan, Angie, and Marlene for helping with the noon hour meal. Thanks to Cliff for bringing out the soft drinks we all enjoyed.

Here are a few photos of the days events.

FPV at KRCM / FPV video
« on: May 11, 2017, 08:05:26 PM »
Gary Droppo and I have been doing a bit of model flying using our FPV (first person view) equipment.  The flight was made using a foam board airplane I built for about $5.00.  It is an FT Explorer.  Here is a video I uploaded to youtube.  The upload left a lot to be desired, but it gives some great veiws of our field. If you havent tried FPV yet I highly recommend giving it a try.  Its really a blast and gives a totally different perspective of flying our toy airplanes.  We have discovered that it is very easy to become immersed in the experience that you lose track of time and how far away you are actually flying from the field.

Here is the link......

PS there is no sound to this video.

Here are a couple pictures of the "CHAIN GANG" slaving away at the field.
