Why are some sugars sweeter than others? Chew on this

The American Chemical Society looks at why some foods taste sweet, and why some sweeteners are, well, sweeter than others. rc While most of us know we like ice cream, cookies and all sorts of other dessert-y goodness, we probably don't give much thought to why other than a vague "because, sugar." And while you might not realize it when you're chomping on that cake, our taste buds perceive some sugars as sweeter than others, and it all comes down to chemistry.

You don't need to be strong because the force needed to power the rc upwards is generated during your spin, and then the design of the glider aids the steep climb. With the right technique a Discus Launch Glider can reach a surprising height and once the glider has leveled out after its vertical climb, your thermal-seeking can commence.

The beauty is that these days many rc airplanes and aircraft are very user-friendly and there is a huge choice of RTF (Ready To Fly) trainers available to beginners. So the chances are that whichever rc airplane training method you decide to go with, your life has already been made easier by the 'flyer-friendliness' of your airplane - so long as you've bought the right type!
Incidentally, although these rc plane training methods do apply to all rc aircraft types, for the purpose of this page we'll just stick with airplanes.

One Flight
Discussion / Posted by KasiEM / 10-24-2013 @ 08:53 AM / 13,579 Views / 3 Comments / Reply
Hello everybody! It's funny how perspective can change the meaning of anything. When I first began working for Esprit Model I was only 19, and not a hobby enthusiasts. I started off in the shipping department packing up orders. My dad had been in the hobby since he was young so I knew a tiny bit about the some of products we sold, but not enough to be considered knowledgeable by any means. Having worked here on and off between my college years, I've slowly built somewhat of a knowledge base, but never really understood the desire to stand outside on a hot day looking up at the sun, with the strong possibility of sending several hundred, or even thousands, of dollars directly in to the ground, until my first flight.
As the Marketing Coordinator, one of the amazing opportunities I was given was to work our booth at IRCHA 2013. It was ASTOUNDING. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting people, watching the demos, and seeing all the items people had to display, however I still didn't truly understand it. One night at IRCHA, when the crowd had settled down, a co-worker handed me a radio and said "We are going to get you flying." Nervously I took the radio, and the addiction was born. When I took those sticks in my hand, I did not do much more than crash, but this desire to keep it in the air longer and longer each time had appeared. I realized that the addiction, (at least for me) came from the desire to keep challenging myself. What more can I do? What is it like to fly something else? What can new technology allow me to do?
I am still learning on a small quad and I hope that one day I'll move up to larger aircraft, but now I can say I get it. I get that feeling. I get the desire. All it took was one flight.

You know, I've been a member of this site for a long time, but since I spend most of my time at RCGroups doing product reviews under the same screen name, I don't get over here very often.

Hoping to change that.

CSpaced does one heck of a job editing and maintaining this site and it deserves the love and attention all of us model aviation nuts can lavish on it. He's been kind enough to link to virtually all of my RCG helicopter reviews and both sites benefit as a result.

That said, I have to share a great experience from last week which I blogged about on RCG.

My best friend of 35 years was in town and I brought him over to the R/C club. He had a blast since he'd never seen model aircraft in flight before and since it was the club's Founders' Day celebration, models were not in short supply.

Some of the most fun I had was demonstrating the HK 450TT Pro I'd reviewed for RCG. Ditto when I showed him the fun and easy-to-fly Heli-Max 1SQ quad. The wind was a bit of an issue, but oddly enough, the 450TT was more affected than was that tiny quad!

In any event, it's nice to be back and I'm looking forward to contributing!
FPV System
Help! / Posted by ANDYjuice22 / 04-24-2013 @ 09:23 AM / 17,681 Views / 0 Comments / Reply
Hi! I am looking for a 1.3GHz FPV System. I am going to need to get it by this weekend for my new job! I had already checked Ready Made RC but they were out of stock on everything. I was wondering of anyone knows any other sites that I can trust.

What I am looking for is something with a 1-2 mile range, it can transmit and receive a 720p video quality, and it wont break up too bad when I fly around trees.

I am getting the FatShark Attitude SD Video Goggles.

If anyone can help me with finding a website or even recommending a transmitter, receiver, and antenna that would be great!

Thanks in advance!:)
RC Helicopter Gyroscopes
Discussion / Posted by joywilkins / 03-11-2013 @ 02:38 AM / 19,281 Views / 2 Comments / Reply
Gyroscopes have completely revolutionized the RC helicopter industry. Before gyroscopes, RC helicopters were about as accessible as a Las Vegas club when you aren't wearing dress shoes. It took ages to learn to fly them properly, and about a million helicopters were broken in the process. Thankfully, now that we have gyros, it is possible to have a beginner helicopter that is easy and enjoyable to fly.


Gyros on RC helicopters are, funnily enough, not actually gyroscopes. They are more like accelerometers. How they work is very complicated, especially now that they are electrical instead of mechanical, but they perform one essential function that makes flying an RC helicopter much, much easier.

Yaw is a rotation to the left or right in a helicopter. Gyros detect yaw, then send a signal to the tail rotor in order to correct it. So if a gust of wind causes a helicopter to spin right, the gyroscope will correct this and dampen the amount of movement. This is very important, as it means trim adjustment basically only needs to be locked in, and then can usually stay in the same position.

There are two kinds of gyros when it comes to RC helicopters: heading hold and yaw rate. Early mechanical gyros were yaw rate gyros. This meant that they didn't completely correct, so if a gust of wind hit the tail it would still move it, but just much slower and in a way that makes it easier to control.

Heading hold gyros are what now come on most standard coaxial gyro helicopters. Heading hold gyros will actually hold the helicopter in the correct position. If a gust of wind hits the tail, the helicopter should ideally stay in the same position. This makes flying so much more straightforward, because the helicopter actually does what the pilot tells it to.

Heading hold gyros work by detecting the change in yaw then calculating the exact number of degrees the yaw has changed. It then sends a command to the tail rotor servo for that exact number of degrees and corrects. The tail does not move at all and the only changes in yaw are ones issued by the pilot.

When flying an RC helicopter, the rotors are constantly losing power because the battery is dying. Without a gyro this means that trim needs to be constantly adjusted. With a gyro this is not a problem at all and trim usually only has to be adjusted once before flying.

Kudos to all those who flew RC helicopters before the advent of gyros, it must have been tough. Thankfully today gyros are available standard on many hobby grade helicopters, and separately for those building helicopters. Beginners can now learn proper flying techniques in a much less harrowing situation.

One example of an excellent coaxial gyro helicopter is the Phantom S107. The Phantom is a micro helicopter, small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. It also comes with a USB charger and can be charged from any computer or laptop. The Phantom S107 handles incredibly well, with almost robotic precision.
