Latest maxvention: High-tech onboard azimutal remote controlled video camera device for rc plane :)
Supermegamaxi simple release mechanism for rc plane ... Terrians, some funny things will fall on your heads :)
Question of the day :
- Will the 300g electric RC plane take off with this 60g jokary tennis ball attached on the remote release mechanism? How high can this be dropped? ( can be calculated measuring freefalling time)
Adding the option of nighflying:
the 2 homemade light flasher and remote on/off are from this website:
the 8 blue and red leds are connected to the RC switch allowing up to 800mA current.
Each blue led has a voltage drop of 3~4 volt and are connected to a 90 ohm resistor under 5 vdc, 2 leds connected in parallel per resistor seems to work fine.
Each red led has a voltage drop of 2 volt and are connected to a 230 ohm resistor under 5 vdc, 2 leds connected in parallel per resistor seems to work fine.
the rear flashing led is connected permanently to power... no need to cut it it uses almost no power.

more advanced game:
a 4 y old girl has to catch the paper plane after it s been released... she loves it :)
