    [–] I am a quad guy looking to get into fpv wings. I am looking for an fpv wing kit that uses a 22xx motor, 5” prop and submicro servos. The main issue ive noticed with airplanes in general is they can’t take a beating nearly like a quad can. I need a wing that can crash as many times as I typically do. newtoon 1 points ago in Multicopter

    It's time for people to understand that we are all different. I like flying SMALL stuff (because backpack), in BAD conditions (because sometimes, I want to fly when going out of work and weather not always nice). I don't care if the computer does half the job. It does it on modern combat plane and we get used to it.

    I like the "resisting" sensation on the sticks when making turns. You don't have that without stab. Period.

    I'm having fun in "restricted mode" as you say. And I hate barrel rolls...

    I'm a quad guy but went in wings a year ago. So, I went for a SMALL light EPP wing (65 cm wingspan, 160 gr AUW). use an old quad motor now : RCX 2400kV 1804

    It can handle 20-30 km/h wind because CC3D stab. It's FPV and prefer 2S (3S is too fast for my personnal taste). I use cheap plastic 5gr servo : don't burn so often (just cut the stab after a crash !). Crashed so many times... I put memory shape foam on the nose : problem solved.

    I Even transport this plane in my backpack !

    [–] Guidemaster: One-upping the NES classic edition with the Raspberry pi 3 and Retropie newtoon 0 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in gadgets

    Oh ! I was wondering as well what was this input lag. Never had on my Retropie. But I use very cheap clones of snes controllers with USB cables. My kids loved all the NEO GEO style arcade games we could get on it. For the 40 euros all included price, this is incredible stuff. Anyone should try. This is quite easy.

    Besides, you can have Raspbian package on another card for your kids to work on this small computer that won't make you cry when it breaks, conversely to laptops.

    [–] What weighs 1250g and goes 118MPH, the Hexabeast! newtoon 1 points ago in Multicopter

    If you know the battery efficiency, it could only be a weapon for 5 minutes...

    Then, it's a piece of junk that you can smash on the floor.

    [–] What weighs 1250g and goes 118MPH, the Hexabeast! newtoon 1 points ago in Multicopter

    In that case, would not be the ideal to have air foils + inverted props ? (under and not above the arms)

    Ok, so with 2 motors more, you still did not beat the performance of this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c3G-KjZV_T4 ;) by a very small margin

    The design shows that you should perhaps put ESCs UNDER the arm and airfoils should be a thing to try effectively

    [–] ELI5: Why are we attracted to a pretty face in terms of mate selection? Physical features of the body show traits that are important to survival/reproduction but what do facial features show? newtoon 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    https://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-26089486 Actually, the fact is that the line is "blurred". GAY term is pure western modern cultural thing. If you asked ancient male greeks for instance, they won't consider themselves as GAY. They just fucked their women so as to make a family and had advanced relationships with other men. At that time and place, noone was nor hetero nor homo.

    [–] Best 2s 3" motor setup? newtoon 1 points ago in Multicopter

    hawksky 1107 8500kv

    I contemplate very light 2S 3 inches almost SILENT quad with excellent perf + good yield. So, I would go something like 1104 6000 kV or 1105 5500KV with triblades 3040 or else.

    [–] Has the community shrunk or gone elsewhere? newtoon 4 points ago in Multicopter

    I agree. Even on Rcgroups, there is a change. There was a time (2013-2014), where "experiments" were on the top list. Now chinese quads, helped with youtube reviewers, are overwhelming almost everything. The advantage is that electronics made great progress.

    [–] Direct Coupling of the Higgs Boson to the Top Quark Observed newtoon 11 points ago in science

    True. Actually, even "fields" as "ocean" are a model of something (reality) which is, in true essence, different. The issue is that we have no way of making analogies with our "real" world, i.e our day to day experience since we are born. That's why QM can't be graped except in the abstract.

    Please, could you rephrase that advice while considering 2nd law ?

    This is not so weird if you consider that kids are more afraid of "monsters under the bed" than by pictures of nuclear bombs on TV...

    What is odd about noise is that I used 6 blades on a 1900 kV quad and this is the best noise you can dream of. Insight here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jsWCj-KiphI
