Misceleanous / once upon a time

once upon a time ... back in Russia, I was doing compulsory military service

How to... / servo size vs model size
« on: June 25, 2012, 11:41:55 AM »
I would like to do it right way this time - prepared to spend some extra cash
on servos.
So, the question is what servos to choose to 3m Condor ?
I originally planned to use Hitec HS85BB/MG (MG for flaps),
but now worried if those will be powerful enough (3kg/cm).

Any thoughts/theories are welcome.

Just got a document stating the position of MACI in regard of FPV.


First Person View R/C will be a legal and recognised aspect of model flying and as such is covered by the MACI Insurance policy but ONLY where the following conditions are applied:
• The activity is solely for 'sport and recreation' purposes.
• Two MACI member pilots must take part.
• A Buddy Box system must be employed.
• The pilot in charge must operate the master transmitter.
• The pilot in charge must not wear the headset or view a screen.
• The aircraft remains within the natural unaided visual range of the pilot in charge.
• Reliable operation of the Buddy Box is established.
• A clear handover protocol is established.
• The pilot in charge is solely responsible for the safety of the flight.
• The model weight shall be limited to a maximum of 5 kg.
• The model should have the insurance number of the planes owner.
These operating conditions very clearly place the legal responsibility for the safety of the flight on the pilot in charge, additionally the responsibility for the legality of the transmitting/receiving equipment utilised also rests with the pilot in charge.

For me this is not what the rest of the world is calling FPV.
