I was looking at the Carden 40% edge and it looks kinda neat !!!

Will a 46 FX with a Macs pipe hover this bird at less than half throttle??

What servos you going to use?

Do not worry too much you will not need the servos to make it hover. Just make sure to put a nice high pitch prop on the front like a 8X8 APC. With the smaller diameter prop you will ensure there is nothing sticking out of the cowling. In other words you will make sure you have no bad wind going back to the tail surfaces making the plane twitchy.

Lom-
Don't fuck up your life with that piece of shit Carden. And why go for such a big plane anyway. What you need to learn to hover is a Kanghke F-20 Tiger Shark. The clean lines allow it to hover straight as an arrow. And everyone knows that glow engines suck ass, so get a DA 150, the only engine worth owning, and 4 JR 8611 servos. You can skip the one for that rudder thingy, as it is worthless, unless you are in taxi mode. Your 8x8 APC prop will be fine.

Good luck, and let us know how it goes.

Im confused

A .46FX with an 8x8 prop for a 40%???? :shock: :shock: :shock:

What the fuck are you smoking?

That whole goddamned combination won't even stick out of the cowl.

What the hell do you need servo's for?
I guess your looking for a multi-thousand dollar freeflight model :shock:

This thread is kind of a parody of your typical RCU thread, I think. If its not, then I'm confused too, but thats normal.

Bro i think a 46 Fx and tuned pipe is way overkill.....more like a os max.10 maybe or even an .049. Don't use the Fx or you might rip the nose off your carden, yeah if you want to hover (whatever a hover is?) all you need is ailerons and maybe elevator ive never heard of a rudder???...just run your engine wide open all the time so you don't need an extra servo for throttle. Have fun!!! :wink:

Well, since I know EXACLY which thread on RCU started this........I'll just say that a OS 46la would be best, and the whole servo question is mute, everyone knows that GWS micros are the only ones worth owning, regardless of the aplication.

And while we're at it, don't joke around about that rudder thing. Right here we had a 3D master explain how he flew not one, but TWO flights hovering a Big Profile w/o rudder. So let's settle it right now, we are all wasting time and adding weight with these POS Rudders!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I shall call this airplane the "Circle Jerk 3D" !!!

The above airplane with three piezo gyros, hold it up and let go. The circle flyer can watch as they feel they are flying with mad skills. Turn off the gyros and return to normal flight. (Doing so will automatically disable the rudder till touchdown).

Sounds like the ultimate RC airplane. Sit down, drink a beer, and let it fly itself.

Oh yes I never thought of that...I'm all for the tigershark and rubber powered brake idea! That will be the perfect combination!

Why go for free flight? Rather attach two chains to the wingtip and we can be sure you will not use the stupid servo things! And besides if we make it control line we will also be sure you are not pissing off the circle jerks? Sheesh this topic has been beaten to death! Why the hell are there still people that want to use rudders to hover? Ridiculous! :p

Well guys, I'm with you!

I just went into the garage and smashed the whole left side of my transmitter to pieces. No more getting crossfucked, no more having trouble getting the throttle feathered to hover and not climb. It's full bore all the time for me. I can't believe I didn't think of this sooner. I also threw away all of my 4 inch pitch props. I'm going with 8 inch pitch from now on! And screw this whole CG issue. I put 6 ounces of lead on the nose of each plane. I'm out of stick on weights, so I CAed on some wheel weights I got from my truck. I should be able to fly "right" now!

(BTW- For the benifit of our new Bros, this is how we blow off steam from all the stupid folks on other forums. Don't worry Ultimate53, we haven't lost it completely... :D )

This is perfect. a rubber powered, gyro stabilized, rudder free, hovering tiger shark!! Now smashing the transmitter might be a little overkill, how about you just hold your beer left handed.

Second Don't throw away your props just cut the tips off of them, they will work just fine 8)

Another thing that is strange is you would think control line flyers would be the ultimate circle jerks, but most of the CL fliers I have met are cool. Some of those combat people can get a little nasty but I guess thats why they are good at it.

You should add some JATO units while your at it. Just duct tape them to the wheel pants. 8)

sorry no bashing intended towards CL flyers...I like CL myself and would like to get a good aerobatic one day. It's just the idea of a CL hovering would be perfect. Imagine you never needing a rudder! Just CA the entire thing stuck. It'll be hover king! LOL

I think smashing the left side of the TX is a perfect idea! Holding beer in the left and heck with this perfect hovering monster i'll be able to hold my smoke in my right hand. SCHWEEET!

Oh and remember to add some of those truck weights to the right wing to compensate for the weight of the chains...I would think 6 pounds should do it. You can't go wrong cause at WOT with the rubber power you might want to shoot for a 16 pound 40" sized bird. Wingloading is not an issue on these don't worry. These small little planes can handle up to 30pounds dry weight easy!
