10 Seconds From Disaster

Add to EJ Playlist  This is a twin-motor foamboard plane I built to try some long-duration flights. It would carry up to 30,000 mAh worth of battery (15 aH in each motor nacelle) and I estimate it would fly 1.5 hours, maybe 2 hours. The wing is 90" (three Armin wing sections, 9" chord) and the fuselage was 70" long. Control by APM and Dragonlink. FPV was 1.3GHz. Landing gear was fiberglass helicopter blades and foam wheels. It flew great....for a moment. The main cause of error was my assumption that the plane was past that light pole, having launched my much-faster Ansley Peace Drone on this identical departure path 50+ times. By this time interval the APD would be well past and above the light poles and ready to circle around and put into a loiter until I could put on my FPV goggles. Too bad this time!

RC Donkey - Details and Dimensions

Add to EJ Playlist  This video shows the main dimensions of the EA Donkey RC airplane design. It uses the standards building techniques of the Armin Wing and the foamboard fuselage tube, plus landing gear and cargo bay door. You can email me any additional questions at experimentalair lines@gmail.com Parts: Micarta aka FR4 G10 fiberglass reinforced plastic One source is ePlastics, with great prices but outrageous shipping costs. See this link but do shop around before you order. http://www.epla stics.com/Plast ic?search=black +g10 Carbon Fiber Plate I usually buy this from eBay, what I assume to be cutoff scraps from somebody else's larger projects. The 2mm seems to be the most versatile although sometimes you will want 1mm, or 3mm for when real stiffness is needed.

Many, many other good options do exist. Motor Any decent brushless motor that delivers 300w or better power is OK but this is the one I like. It has plenty of power, is reasonably efficient, and turns a manageable prop - not too big not too small. http://www.hobb yking.com/hobby king/store/__14 342__NTM_Prop_D rive_Series_35_ 36A_1400Kv_550W .html http://www.hobb yking.com/hobby king/store/__11 854__Corona_919 MG_Digital_Meta l_Gear_Servo_1_ 7kg_12_5g_0_06s ec.html

Explosive Hand Injury - After The Reconstruction

Add to EJ Playlist  At age 31 I suffered a severe hand injury due to an explosion resulting from my own ignorance in trying to construct a "better smoke grenade" for skydiving. Bad idea. In this video I describe the outcome of the accident, the surgical reconstruction, the rehabilitation, and some of the things I can do with my hands. This video is meant to satisfy the curiosity of subscribers to my channel who watch me detail RC airplane construction techniques on the bench, prominently showing my weird hand. I hope this can also serve as an inspiration for anyone who has doubts about their own recovery from a devastating injury, in seeing that a person can really do quite a lot with motivation and determination. My hand surgeon, to whom I owe the most incredible gratitude, is Dr. Jozef Zoldos in Phoenix.AZ. He did expertly performed the original salvage, the pollicization, and many other surgeries, including several to correct mistakes made by a second surgeon I saw in a different city and who I will not name here. Chris Reynolds of Desert Hand Therapy in Phoenix was my hand therapist and earns my immense appreciation for his care and diligence in helping me work up to the point I am today. My wife, my mother, and my sister were incredibly supportive and kept me going through my recovery adventure.

APD Canard Wing Construction

APD main wing

Add to EJ Playlist  A detailed video on the construction of the Ansley Peace Drone rear, main wing. It is recommended that the builder have a good grasp on the Armin Wing building technique. With two 30" wings constructed in their basic form, the APD main wing can be constructed with a spar, elevons, and winglets.
