Rewinding a 2205 Brushless Motor

Rewinding a 2205 Brushless motor.

Hello everybody!
It’s three years since I’m in the RC hobby, and it was then that I got this kind of motor. It was intended for the well-known Cessna 150. Then it was incorporated into an overseas 4Q, then – into a Vzhik, and now it is installed in a Kesla. Although it has come through snow and water and gave a smoke, it was all right until a few days ago. It was down after I flew my KESL a few times. I guess that is due to winding damage or something like that. Well, that’s not important now.

FPV from Scratch in Detail.

The whole thing started on a cold and snowy evening. I was having fun after another busy workday at my PC browsing for all sorts of RC hobbyist goodies, as I was about to start building my new plane. When I was well into yet another attempt to comprehend the section describing telemetry equipment, the idea of building a FPV dawned upon me. After a brief consideration, I was fully determined to add my first FPV to my arsenal.

Polikarpov Po-2 - the Heavenly Slug

Now that I have crafted a dozen of ceiling tile models, it is about time for me to build a big chugger with a trail of smoke behind it! Without much hesitation I chose a legendary WWII vet – the Polikarpov Po-2. I wanted to be honest, so I decided to build it from wood and cover it with doped fabric and try not to overweight it. Also, I wanted to test my DIY CNC. I hammered at drafts a little, which I had fished out of the web (those were just common views from three angles) and started sawing.

F-22 The Raptor of Styrofoam Flooring Underlayment

Hello! My name is Denis, I’m 13 years old.

Today I will tell you about construction of the model of US fighter F-22, also known as the Raptor. I liked this model due to its appearance, simplicity of construction and low flight speed. After the analysis of drawings and specification I understood that I have all necessary electronics. Well, it’s time to start!

La-7 Fighter Plane

Hello everyone!

I'd like to share with you my experience of building La-7 fighter plane model. I used styrofoam because the time until the contest was short and there was no way I could make the dummy to build the model out of plastic bottles.
I'll keep it brief, if you have any questions, ask away in the comments below, I'll reply.

"Yak the fighter aircraft": How to make the Yak-1b in 5 days.

I haven't made any new models last winter. I mostly repaired and renewed the old stuff. I also had bad luck breaking one of my little model favorites - "orange" Yak-3. The fault was mine: I hurried and failed while configuring the remote control. Despite the confused controlling I managed to save the plane from a full-force nosedive, but the foam wing spar didn't survive such treatment...
Was there any sense repairing it? It would require a new wing though, besides the replacement traces would be noticable. And where there is a wing, there is everything else...
Such thoughts led me to make a relatively similar but new model.

Pete n Poke made of ceiling tiles.

Hi there! Once I came across the model of a parasol two-sitter «Pete n Poke». It was made of balsa with glow-engine.

I was eager to make it myself but out of ceiling tiles. I decided to cover it with tracing paper on an aqua lacquer base and paint with acrylic spray to make the outline look nicer. It should be noted that I didn't plan to copy it. I simply wanted to make a nice retro model. The motor used was brushless TURNIGY NTM Prop Drive Series 28-36 1200 RPM.
NTM Prop Drive Series 28-26 1100kv / 252w
Product http://www.rcfair.com/en/product/976951/

Wing spread chosen was 1100 mm, fuselage length – 938 mm. I scaled it and changed the drawning due to the usage of ceiling tiles.
