Astro Viking RC Oldtimer Maiden flight
Astro Viking RC Oldtimer Maiden flight 20 years after this plane was built it took to the air. Astro Flight were pioneers in electric RC aircraft. This "El-timer" was originally powered by a brushed motor and NiCd batteries. A modern brushless setup was installed and it shaved 400g off the starting weight, should provide twice the power and at least twice the flight time. The plane is a bit tail-heavy and the left half of the wing was quite warped which we did not notice before takeoff. The over 20 year old Hitec servos are very slow compared to the modern offerings. Aircraft: Astro Flight Viking Drivetrain: Multiplex PERMAX BL-O 2830-1100 motor, MULTIcont BL-20 SD ESC, 8"x 5 prop, 2200 mAh MPX LiPo. RC gear: Spektrum DX6i, LemonRC 6ch DSM2, HiTec 20 year old servos Camera: Mobius Guitar: Epiphone J200 into iPhone

Traxxas Summit & LaTrax Teton on the trail
Traxxas Summit & LaTrax Teton sharing trail duty at Sandsjöbacka Drumlin, Kungsbacka, Sweden. The first part of trails are mostly very easy footpath with a few old stone fences to cross. The later part has a steep rocky section that slightly more challenging. A true crawler would make light work of these obstacles but there are much more difficult sections available. On the whole, these two "trail trucks" fit well here. Latrax Teton RTR - stock Traxxas Summit VXL RTR - stock Camera: Turnigy 2k Location: Sandsjöbacka bräcka Music: Soundcloud.com/Edgery

Multiplex Heron, maiden flight - on the slope
I have been putting off doing the maiden flight of my Heron for some time. I did not expect it to be on the slope, but I brought it along this time and the temptation to try it was too big. The Heron flew absolutely perfect - the launch was with hands off the sticks. I will do some fine tuning of CG and adjust flight phase mix compensations but that is about it. Gear: Heron RR, Cockpit SX (1st gen) and RX-7 M-Link telemetry. Site: Sandsjöbacka Bräcka, Kungsbacka, Sweden.

Phoenix 1600, trimming flight part 2
Phoenix 1600. Despite moving the CG further and further back I could not get it to fly exactly like I wanted so I decided to try to shim the front end of the stabilizer, giving it more "dive". I used a popsicle stick, 2mm thick, cut and sanded to fit. I set the CG inbetween the "too much" and "not enough" values I had before. The mod was successful, check the video! It turned a really good flying plane into a great flying plane.

Multiplex Funglider RR Maiden Flight
MPX Funglider Maiden Flight This is my first flight of the Funglider. It is a quite long video and almost completely unedited but I have added many comments to explain what I am doing during the flight. I think this shows very well how if flies. Everything is completely standard and the throws and CG is exactly as specified in the manual. I'm sorry that the plane sometimes is out of frame. There is a lot of multitasking going on, it's the first flight jitters and pointing the head in the correct direction is not always easy. :) ============================================== Aircraft: Multiplex Funglider RR Battery: Multiplex 950mAh RX/TX: FRSky Taranis X9D+ / X6R Camera: Mobius Pilot, film, guitar: Kristoffer

Magnum Reloaded RC plane by Miniprop with Mobius camera
This is a few clips of my Magnum Reloaded. It was bought as a complete kit from Himmlishe Höllein in Germany. My motor/speed controller setup is a bit overpowered to handle outside wind conditions and the Mobius. The Magnum flies best when kept light, a 2S battery is enough. It also survives crashes better with the smaller batteries. Sharp eyed viewers notice tailplane is in some clips warped - bad storage!

HobbyKing BFG2600 Slope Soaring "maiden"
HobbyKing BFG2600 slope soaring "maiden"; first slope flight ever and also after burning the ESC and converting it to a pure glider. Vallda Sandö, Kungsbacka, Sweden. 7-9 m/s, 6 degC This flight was done after warming up with my FunGlider. The wind had picked up a bit by now and I had a very difficult time launching the BFG. The first launch I slipped but had to let it go anyway and it tumbled, in the thick heather luckily. The next launch I did I held it just in front of the wheel and then it could sort of "dangle in the wind". Even then the launch was pretty dramatic. It flew without motor, the 4s 2200 battery plus ~270g of wheel bolts was in the nose to compensate for the missing motor and it worked perfectly fine. I used a 5ch reciever and the flaps were locked. It would help with the roll speed to use the flaps mixed in with ailerons. No need for crow. The BFG is very majestic in the air and the control response and harmony is good. The wings are very stiff. It is not very fast though, the thick profile and big fuselage together makes it lose its speed quickly so would probably slope better in less wind. Landing it was very easy, the size and stability is good.

Easy Star 2 Slope Soaring in hard wind by sea, Kullavik
Easy Star 2 Slope Soaring in hard wind by sea, Kullavik /Kullsvik My first visit to this spot. Great lift but the wind strength turned up despite the forecast and in the end it was a bit too strong. The aircraft is a stock Easy Star 2 with aileron upgrade and the radio is a DX6i. In the hollow plastic wing spar/tube, there is a pice of threaded steel rod (€4-5 at the local hardware store) which adds a bit of stiffness and useful weight as well. I did two starts and landings, the first landing was perfect and the second was captured on video. :) All filming, editing and music is made by me. Hope you like it and I appreciate feedback!

Magnum Reloaded Miniprop on floats, schwimmerbausatz!
Magnum Reloaded Miniprop on floats, schwimmerbausatz! "First flight on floats" During summer, heavy rain created a large puddle on the meadow outside. Great time to put on my Viking rubber boots and try out the floats on the Magnum! This was some months ago and the Mobius camera light settings are ... not very good, but I have since learned to adjust them. :) The music is composed by me and recorded/created in my latest obsession, Garageband. I have used, for example Cubase, Cakewalk, Reason and a long time ago, analog 4-track recorders but I got fed up with all the fiddling (haha), boxes, cables and myriads of options. Garageband put the fun back in music creation for me. :) Enjoy! EDIT: Music is now available https://soundcloud.com/edgery/sets/the-2015-flying-sessions

Dream Flight Alula Trek Hiking Soaring Hangflyg Hangflug Grundsö
I tried a new spot which I found while biking-hiking around here. I've been dragging my cyclocross bike along these cliffs and also swam out to the next island. Part of my reason to buy the Alula was to be able to easily bring the plane on a hike. This spot is easy to reach by foot though. I put comments on it since it's a pretty long clip this time. The music is a combination of my improvisations and from the Youtube archive. I appreciate any feedback and tips on flying etc. since I learned a lot from the RC community and this is a way to give something back. Thanks!

Phoenix 1600 slope soaring Amundön
Spontaneous slope visit: The wind was strong but from the "worst" direction when it comes to sloping, northeast. I had already planned a walk/hike and brought the glider as this cliff looked promising. The actual slope is narrow and too round to be really good and the steep drop to the sea on both sides means electric is a almost a necessity or a mistake will cost a plane. The gull company, a (possible) marsh harrier and two good thermal lifts made my day though! The landing is not fun though and I doubt I will try the site again.

Phoenix 1600 and Funglider slope soaring
The last shot at flight before Christmas 2016; a cold, damp and occasionally foggy day at the slope. The hike to the site was accompanied by a light drizzle of rain but the rain held up at launch time. The cold was unbearable after a couple of hours and neither the camera gyro nor the anti-shake software could handle my shaking hands - you have to suffer occasional stutter in the rendering. In retrospect its fun to watch Dan flying on the video back-to-back with my flight. He has a much more efficient style than I do, I'm smooth but I slide in turns and waste energy. Both planes fly great, the Phoenix with aero attention really keeps the speed up well and easily goes into the wind but the Funglider is the more lively and entertaining flyer.

DreamFlight Alula Trek DLG Soaring at Amundön
After throwing and trimming my Alula on my local meadow I decided to test the "Trek" part, stuffed it in my Haglöfs backpack and went down to the island Amundön. The original intention was to just have some more space to practice discus-launching but eventually I tried to slope-soar it on the almost non-existent slope on the edge of the sea. The hard wind flatters my beginners throwing technique. Also, I forgot to bring the tape and managed to rip a wing off and break one of the plastic tubes inside. So -TAPE NEEDED FOR HARD DLG. But it was easily fixed and it flew after minor glueing. Since this outing, I have smeared a thin layer UHU Por on the leading edge of the wing, the edge of the fin and also on the nose. I added regular clear 3M tape on the leading edge to protect it from scratches and make the plane more rugged. The Alula flies incredibly good and has a surprisingly wide speed range. The practical limit is perhaps 7-8 m/s even with ballast. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- AIRCRAFT: DreamFlight Alula Trek RC GEAR: LemonRX 6ch DSM2, Spektrum DX6i, Emax 9051, DreamFlight NiMH RECORDING: Mobius, iPhone6, Epiphone J200 & Movie Maker LOCATION: Amundön Sweden- North Beach Meadows & Queen Bay CREDITS: Guitar improv, film, editing, piloting by Kristoffer

Easy Star 2 Slope Soaring Hangflyg Hangflug Vallda Sandö
Vallda Sandö is outside Kungsbacka in Sweden. I was recommended this spot by one of my flying friends. It is perfect for the prevailing wind direction here - SW. The slight piece of ground in the front gives a mental advantage compared to a cliff straight to the sea. This was my first visit here. Will definitely try it again in better conditions. The Easy Star manages this wind but without much margin since it just does not fly fast enough. The first flight was quite scary but I'm very happy to save the situation well. All kinds of flying skills are useful - in this case I had my recent 3D practice to thank for knowing the "Death Drop" move. It's not difficult and normally you pull some rudder to keep the nose pointing level - I did not want that today! Due to the bad weather conditions I did not get good footage and therefore spent minimal effort on editing and music, but I wanted this video "out there". :) Thanks!

BFG2600 Hobbyking glider
Flying, filming, editing, music by me. (Successful flight video here: http://youtu.be/HARLUHOlU7k) During the last month the cold, wind and rain has prohibited any flying. There was also assembling and programming since I traded my Spektrum/LemonRX gear for the FrSky Taranis X9D+ The first flight and second flights were successful but short due to battery charge (too much re-programming of the new TX on the field). This is my third flight with the HK BFG2600 glider. It turned out to be short too, this time due to some intermettent RX problem so I occasionally lost telemetry. The video might give the impression of me being reckless and launching despite a dodgy range test but I had very high RSSI level readings and easily passed the FRSky recommended range test and with a completely new system it was confusing. Since I did not know what was going on I landed as soon as I could. A lot of testing and logging later revealed the glitches and a faulty reciever. The BFG2600 model has been around a while. I was previously been sold as Robbe Arcus and Art-Tech Diamond. HobbyKing later sold it (link EDIT removed as article discontinued): http://www.hobbyking.com/ There is a good thread on RC-Groups on this glider, the link contiunes to break but the thread number is 2166366 and the title has BFG2600 and 1600 in it: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2166366 If you have one, check that thread out for all kinds of tech tips on brake programming, hinges, servos, control horns and other issues.

Funglider Slope Thermals Sandsjöbacka: Strong eastern wind, about 45 degrees offset from the SE-facing slope. The left side of the slope curves slihtly and lift was stable. Along the ridge it worked but it was - as usual - very turbulent. Lovely plane, much more capable than the size indicates.

Traxxas Summit 1:10 crawling and climbing
This is me driving and filming my 1:10 Traxxas Summit up a local clifftop. It is very steep, perilous to walk up when wet and plain difficult in the dry. The Summit is a peculiar car. The individual suspension, lockable diffs and the hi/lo gears gives a range of use that is matched by few other RC:s. It is basically good at most things but not really the best at anything. The fantastic suspension articulation sometimes makes it difficult to find terrain that really challenges the car. I run my completely stock and use it as a trail truck and hiking companion. The only negative thing is that it is heavy to carry when the batteries are depleted. Bring an extra set to make it all the way!

LS1 large RC glider slope soaring at Vallda Sandö
Dan slope soars his 3,75m wingspan LS-1. The wind conditions were truly excellent this day at Vallda Sandö and slope soaring is a joy when there is such endless strong lift. I captured some of his flight with the Mobius camera. The LS1 was used when Dan got it so the manufacturer is unknown to him. It has a fibreglass fuselage and - I think - planked foam wings. The wing center fastening has a large alu plate and screws. The wind made the video recording quite shaky so I used a lot of anti-shake which causes some jerkiness. It was an improvement nonetheless. Dan likes blues music so I recorded a bluesy soundtrack.

Multiplex Easy Star 2 flight with Mobius
My second Multiplex Easy Star 2. First flight. I used a 950 pack and a Mobius. The plane was slightly front heavy. I got about 38 minutes of footage and 32 minutes in the air with a Mobius up front and mAh to spare still. Four quick landings to move the velcroed camera. With the 2000mAh I expect to stay up for an hour. The plane is lightened and stiffened with carbon fibre pieces and I also used clear tape to smooth out any edges. Left to do is to put covers over the control horns. Equipment: Transmitter: Multiplex Cockpit SX 2.4 Rudder and Elevator: Emax ES08A2 Ailerons: Multiplex Nano S ”long wire” Reciever: Multiplex RX-5 light Battery: Multiplex Li-Batt 950 Motor: Turnigy SK3 2826 -1240 ESC: Hobbywing FlyFun 30A Camera: Mobius 1, Turnigy/SJ4000 Build: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2977999-Building-an-Easy-Star-2-possible-FPV https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2986432-Easy-Star-2-build-cont https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2986924-Easy-Star-2-flight-ready-at-575g-20oz

RC Hangflyg Fjärås Bräcka Slope Soaring Hangflug Nano Floh
RC Slope Soaring (hangflyg, hangflug) Location: Fjärås Bräcka, west coast of Sweden Weather: 5(9) m/s west, 13 degC Model: Nano Floh /Mini Micro Flea Pilot: Kristoffer R Camera: Mobius (mounted on my bike helmet) I recently took up RC again after a ten-ish year hiatus and this is my first re-visit to Bräckan. According to the older guys of my previous club KMFK it used to be perfect in the 70's but now too many trees. Still very flyable though! Weather was logged by SMHI station in Fjärås, the wind was brutally hard on the edge and blew my helmet back and also the plane as you can see. My Nano Floh from http://modellbau-schmierer.de/ is over ten years old and was sold as the Mini Micro Flea by Nasko Hobby in Sweden. I'm not sure if you could still buy it but it's truly brilliant and the only plane I held on to (of about a dozen) when I left the hobby. I use a Multiplex Smart SX transmitter, mode 2 setup. The V-tail is configured to do elevator only. The battery pack is a Sanyo Eneloop 4xNiMH AAA size. I usually plug it straight into the reciever but today I ran a on/off switch + cables inbetween. With the canopy held by magnet so the pack can fly out during a hard "landing" and not rip the reciever out too, proved useful since it happened a couple of times. Fjärås Bräcka is a worthy place for a visit also without RC planes. http://www.svetur.se/kungsbacka/sevardheter/Fjaras-bracka--naturum/

Losi TLR22 2.0 and Traxxas MERV top speed test
TLR22 2.0 and MERV top speed test: No RC flying in a while BUT I got myself a used RC car and naturally the top speed must be checked! The Traxxas is my wifes car actually but I tested it too. Also new is the intro which was shot with a new Turnigy 2k camera (SJ4000+ rebrand), first time I used it. The Losi is very fast, too fast for me really but I'm learning to drive and tune it. It looks a bit battered already which is good as I'm less anxious to crash it. After this video was shot I replaced the bullet connectors on the motor side and it has been completely glitch free since.

Alula Trek - Last Slope Farewell (fixed camera, big screen)
Farewell Dream-Flight Alula Trek! (Fixed cam, needs a big screen) I have sold my Alula. I recorded my last flight. This was the third start of this session. By now the wind had picked up and it was hard to get enough penetration to do any tricks without the ballast. I've had a few wings before but the Alula is by far the best and most capable. Follow the excellent manual and you will be rewarded. The Alula and I did it all - biking, trekking, flatland, big slope, small slope, new slope... It has hung with the big glass gliders in hard wind at the big slopes and has also been scratching for lift at the beach or in the meadow outside my flat. Each time it impressed me, and others - be it fellow pilots or bystanders - with it's abilities and birdlike behaviour. However, it's time for something else - goodbye! 7-8 m/s S Mobius Dream-Flight 350 NiMH Emax 9051 Multiplex Cockpit SX & RX-5 Starting weight 188g (5g glue, repairs, stickers and tape) Music: Edge of the Sea - Sir Trekoff

Winter flying with the Hobbyking BFG2600
Finally! I got a proper flight in with the BFG2600. And a proper landing with the crow on. The D8 reciever worked when the X8R did not. Five climbs to about 120-150m and then gliding down. Total motor time was 1 minute 45 seconds and the flight time was about 16-17 minutes. EDIT/Correction: Power is 650W +/- 40W The plane flies really sweet. There was some tells of thermal but I did not really catch a proper one. My BFG is completely standard except 1/ the stickers which I removed and replaced with HK tape and 2/ the servos which are Hitec / MPX HS-55. The starting weight is exactly 2000g. To avoid suffering too much from the cold - this day provided a stern -10degC - I use a Turnigy transmitter glove. http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__31445__Turnigy_Transmitter_Glove_2_4Ghz_Neckstrap_Ready_EU_Warehouse_.html All the flying, filming, editing, music etc is done by myself. ================================== Aircraft: HobbyKing BFG2600 TX/RX: FRSky Taranis X9D+ / D8 Servos: HiTec HS-55 / MPX Nano S Battery: Turnigy 4s 2200mAh Camera: Mobius Editing: MovieMaker Music: Ibanez RG, Epiphone J200, iRig, Garageband ================================== ESC program card: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=46548&aff=1770662 Wing cable: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=76335&aff=1770662 Wing tape: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewitem.asp?idproduct=41772&aff=1770662

Practice with Losi TLR22 1.0
I'm learning to drive an RC buggy. The cars are fun to work on and driving on rainy, dark days. Compared to RC flight my tension is very much lower as the crash risk is ... not less but different.

Tech Toys V24 RC Boat, brushless conversion
Tech Toys V24 RC Boat, brushless conversion. The V24 is a toygrade boat. A friend gave this to me, it had dead electronics. I put a brushless kit in it. I have since bought a functioning stock V24 but it is very boring. The brushless is faster, more quiet and smoother to steer:) Most of the gear is leftovers from cars and planes. The servo is not a noname, I swapped it for a Dymond.

Mild weather and great slope winds at Sandsjöbacka Drumlin. Four fliers met up bringing seven planes. Lift was good but inconsistent, but it did not matter as the thermals were better.

Autumn colours: Easy Star 2 Mobius Aerial film RC Amundön Multiplex
I went out trying to catch the colours of the autumn leaves. While spring goes on for months, the yellow and orange beauty of autumn comes and goes in a couple of weeks. Amund Island (Amundön) lies just 15 km south of Gothenburg, Sweden. It will soon become a nature reserve, and deservedly so. It is a popular spot for all kinds of recreational activities. During spring and summer, the North Meadows are off limits due to protection of birds and the whole South meadows area is a pasture for horses. This means that the area cannot normally be used for RC flying. The aircraft is a stock Easy Star 2 from German Multiplex and the camera is the ubiquitous Mobius. Radio gear: Spektrum DX6i transmitter with a LemonRX reciever The music is improvisations on my acoustic Epiphone J200.
