r2hobbies birds

Noticed Nigel is obviously an r2 fan with a picture of his Speedo Pro. Me too. I've attached pictures of my current fleet of r2 stuff, 1.8m Passer, 1.6m Bulero and 1.2m Speedo Pro. Also a Mk 1 Speedo and r2's 1.5m Fox.

To me these all represent great value and, for the money, good flying. They're not, in stock form, speed machines and they'll all benefit from a bit of judicious strengthening. All of them, though, can deal with a wide wind speed range, especially with the help of a bit of church roof, and the Speedo is very definitely in the "keep it in the back of the vehicle and chuck off (almost) anywhere" category.

Sadly in recent years the price has jumped dramatically but it's still worth keeping an eye on their e-bay site "revolutionshop". I just got the Bulero landed on my doorstep for a total cost including shipping of about £48. It may have been a mistake on their part to only charge me this much. I notice that since then they've increased the shipping alone to £55 - no chance there!

Check those Battery Wires

I nearly had a major distaster flying my Mini Dragon off the Orme the other week. After flying at the usual break neck speed around the cliff top I took her up to dotsville whilst I had a chat with one of the locals. All of a sudden I had NO control. All I could do was watch it steadily spiral down picking up speed as she came down. It came banking in at high speed over the landing zone and I knew it was going to end badly. At about 2 metres high it suddenly shook itself and I regained control. This was followed by a rapid landing and it was packed up in the car whilst I had a cup of tea to calm down.
The subsequent investigation revealed the battery black wire had turned to dust and it fell apart in my fingers. I have read about this problem but I always wondered how I could check for this. I now know that it would have been obvious if I had visually inspected it or gently pulled it.
I recommend that if your model has been tucked away for a while give those black wires a quick inspection.
I did do the lottery that night but I think I had used up all my luck !
