Samuel Hayden: I know this was kind of a long video, but I wish you had gone on to do the
wings. What do you think about putting a Zip tie around the center of the
wing tube to show where the center is and keep it from being pushed into
one wing more than the other?
Philippe Giboulot: Hi Pete,
Can you ask your marketing dpt about exporting straight from China to
Europe, or have a European hub like another known chinese company ?
Nowadays importing from the US has become a major issue (headache, time
delay, and import duty). Price becomes double (transportation plus taxes)
Kusang Tobdhen: Am i gona get the locking things after the instalment of proppeler? If I
order a new proppeler ?
dylan ellis: I do rubber bond jets but I love rc that's where I'm heading is that a good
Alejandro Gutierrez Longa: Hi there, just one question before buying it! with stock motor and esc can
handle a 4s 3500mah battery?
mentuemhet: You lost me at EPO. EPP is a stronger material. Use that instead.
Paul Rude: can i high start it? or pull it with a tow plane? i really want this,
looks really nice!
Steve Fassler: My RTF Super Sky Surfer was advertised as 95% assembled, yet I had to add
all of the control horns, decals, and glue the fuse together. After
crashing it a few times, I decided to do a land take off (as opposed to
hand launching). The plane nosed into the ground everytime. And The CG was
correct. After looking at the way the motor was mounted, I determined that
there was too much down thrust, so I split the fuse and that is when I
noticed there was no glue holding it together.
RIDERZcouk: @ BH Seriously ? mark the centre of the spar,come on fella, you know it's
just going to get pushed inside when you put the second wing half on,
wooden dowling down inside the tubes to stop it work great and are light
and cheap and easy to find The cut out for the flap servos is wrong as they
reversed them like you do with aileron cutouts and then went and
mechanically reverses the servo internally, that's not easy to find a
replacement for and will need a new servo recess cutting out
Brenda Cunningham: How about a small glo engine ??????? Not into electric!!
Valkyry5: Oh, and Pete, the 3600 battery IS TOO LIGHT! That should NOT stay. It WILL
be too tail heavy. We on Rcgoups.com proved that sir. Some folks used the
"4000mah 3s" on up to 5000mah 4s. And change the ESC to a 60 amp with a
switchable 3 or 4s. Or a separate UBEC.
Fernando Castro: Pete. the gyro bs2x 2 axis comes with the instructions, thanks.
martin rc: very nice plane my setup motor 3548 790kv prop apc 4 blades 10x6, 4s
nano-tech 5000a(30min-40min run time) esc projet 60a
ram48heyburn: hehe i noticed that also, mine fly's just fine with motor angled, i took
control rod tubes clear out of it,and installed new tubes and #2-56 thread
gold-n-rods with golden clevis on each end works great, i also put in a 50
amp esc with 4amp built in bec due the fact that the stock esc really isn't
enough for 6 17g servos.one guy crashed his SSS when the small control rod
for elevator came loos from the servo horn.
timw1959: My Hawk Sky is on it's last leg as I used it to learn so it has taken a
beating,tops of trees,clipping a branch,nose down landings and all.lol
timw1959: I have ordered the RTF Super Sky Surfer and am waiting now for UPS to get
moving.Does the plane do rolls,Loops,inverted,ect.??And what should I buy
as extra equipment like the prop,battery,ect.?
thejackmanone: i would also like to put in a naza or wookong-m with gps
thejackmanone: pete i just ordered this plan in the arf platform from you guys and would
like to bind it to the controller (the one with the color touch screen)
that i got with the matrix from you guys. do you sell recievers with or
without the satilights for this controller. i am planning on using the
gopro3 with fatshark attitude w/headtracker on her. i would like to see
long rang flights in the future as well so what do you suggest for the
biggest battery that will work with this configuration? thanks
Valkyry5: Dracuss2000, do you have any video? If you do can you go to Rcgroups.com
under Super Sky Surfer and share what you have done? We would LOVE to have
you... we need you buddy!
Jeremy Parsons: hope you learned how to use the flaps. it really help to land
Francisco Carabaza: Good Video, Pete. Thank you!
freakingedd: great video!
Colin Velt: that plane is more than 4x the size of my plane
hunterkick1: Hey Pete! How do I bind the transmitter to the receiver if I have the new
MC6 that came with the super sky surfer. It has a built-in transmitter
antenna and I have not seen a bind button on it.
RIDERZcouk: Continued from below Other than that I love this plane, it flies fantastic,
the supply to the UK from BH was great BUT ! please don't gloss over what
the plane needs, be honest about it instead and you'll get loads more
respect from buyers FYI mine runs on a 5000mah 3S right up in the nose,
everything is standard and she balances perfectly As one of the first
owners/pilots of one of these I'd highly recommend it
KGFlyer55: For fpv
gkseifert: Pete, Locktite attacks many plastics. Can't be sure if that will apply to
those horns, but I gave up using Locktite altogether in modelling to avoid
any avoidable crashes. Canopy glue (RC-56) is wonderful for holding nuts in
place. It sticks very well and also will not run through the threads and
glue the barrel to the horn like CA can.
Atom RC: I just recieved my SSS and have noticed one huge problem that many on
RCGroups have noticed. The Spar tubes in the wings were not pushed all the
way into the wing before gluing, both wing tubes were sticking out 1/4"
preventing the wings from going together smoothly. The average builder
would not want to take the time to correct this to get it to fly. Other
than that it is going together great! Changing the prop and an ESC that can
Cled Williams: I am going to be ordering this plane today for you , But I am going to
order it in kit form becuase I understand its a bit underpowered , the
servos jam in one direction . I really would like to buy a RTF kit and
would pay for an upgraded kit with a 60a ESC and 4s 4000mah and metal gear
servos and a higher power motor . Since I am new to Electric Flight I would
like to buy my plane and gear from one source . This is going to be for my
FPV platform . Thanks pete for posting .
geneticallyinferior1: LOVE these long videos!
Trevor Heath: do you have a build video for the Easy Trainer 1280? I can't seem to find
Dragoslav Miljević: Ummm, last? Haha ^^
RIDERZcouk: @ thejackmanone Ardupilot Mega 2.5 (APM 2.5) or RVOSD with waypoints
unlocked (if your outside of the USA/Canada
victor reyezs: |,,|
SuperAirsoft09: will you guys be selling banana hobby posters?
joey alviz: hey pete, im just planning to buy my first plane, i check all the range of
gliders that is available in my area (UAE) which i found to be FMS easy
trainer 1280, can you do a review on this glider or kindly send me a copy
of the manual coz i cannot find in the net (lazy searching)..thanks...my
9westwood9: the sss on the wall motor is straight LOL
jwems: Vibration and fuel would destroy the foam engine mount area, too hard to
mod it for fuel tank and still maintain a solid COG as fuel is expended.
timw1959: Should the flaps be used for take off?
Vrael1022: £86... not bad... about £100 by the end of it but still very nice. I'd like
to see an episode where you fix broken EPO Foam... ie. A wing...?
Roger Tyson: Ok you want to hear it here it goes, all i want is a helicopter that works
I have a double horse 9100 9104 and 9116, and after a few hard landings and
by that i mean small bounce no real damage, the control boards go nuts and
you get no tail rotor control. It happened to all three. Seems to me the
gyros are to fragile. I want new ones, I want to fly not wait a month to
finally get parts that might not work. Thank you
KGFlyer55: Hey Pete, another great build video, luv em. Just a couple of things, could
you do close ups on the smaller items you work on. Second could you show
some close up shots of the Super Sky Surfer's interior for those of us
considering it for
thejackmanone: opps i relized that the wookong is for multi rotors any thing out there
like it for this style aircraft i like the OSD, waypoint auto pilot,
stability, as well as the return to home feature. yes i am getting the s800
in the near future.
Soldier53flyer: I love this airplane but 4 more screws will not kill them! but it is not a
deal killer for me I will go out and buy 4 more screws!? :-( it looks like
a great FPV plane!
