Groundstation

I assembled a few parts on my Eagletree groundstation from electronicarc. Unfortunately there are some issues that makes soldering a must, replacing servo headers so they can be routed internally. Same goes for bullet connector for power if you want the LIPO inside. The plastic casing itself can be pretty hard to put together as …

Videolink-permit denied

I got a response from PTS – a big DENIED 😀 Not unexpected – but what’s interresting is that I tried to maintain a dialog with them, asking questions of how to solve this in best way possible then they went quiet. stopped responding to emails (they were slow to begin with) All of a …

Skywalker stickers

I really don’t like the original stickers on the Skywalker so I decided to keep the parts of them that I do like and relocated them. I will also add some branding and my FPV-ID numbers

Skywalker LED

Lit up from a distance

I added LED strips to my Skywalker so I can keep flying in the darkness. Weight penalty is minor and Current drain is barely noticeable. The LED strip is attached to the carbon rod and taped to the bottom of fuselage. Here are a few images of the fuselage with internal LEDstrip

Y-cable

I soldered an Y cable from 2pcs 15cm servo extensions. This was a backup plan if I failed to program the DX7 with dual ailerons & dual flaps. Now I have a Y-cable lying about and I have plans to use it on Rudder channel. This enables me to have 1 servo on rudder and …

Skywalker Flaps / Ailerons completed

Completed wing

I now finished my Flaps and Ailerons on both wings. Programming the radio was pretty straight forward – if you _read_ the manual (I didn’t) First I muffled my DX7 beeper with thick tape (my wife was killing me) A future upgrade involves a switch with speaker loud/muffled 1st try: Ailerons wore moving and I …

Skywalker Flaps / Ailerons

Skywalker wing

I mounted Flaps and Ailerons on 1 of the wings. As the flaps are only marked but not cut it is an option to install flaps – I want to add them in order to fly slower, hopefully to generate better footage in the end. I copied the design of the servo-slot for ailerons and …
