I think David will be taking a break from Rocket Knife for a while, so I’m curious to hear what everyone wants him to do next 🙂
I personally would LOVE to see a long video (or even a series of videos) about all of the FPV aircraft that David has built and flown over the past 9-10 years. Starting with the Funjet, Easystar, Twinstar… and ending with his current favorite aircraft to fly. I’ve been a huge fan of David’s and always admired his passion for the hobby. I’m also very interested in R/C technology in general and David has been a great resource.
I miss the time when David would post several times a week on his blog. I’d love to find out what technology David used and why, what he uses now, how it’s different… essentially a video on David’s R/C hangar from the last decade or so.
What do you guys think?20 February, 2018 at 07:28 #41043
Yeah it’s always good to reflect on where you’ve been to better understand where you’re going.
-Having an “open” process to update the F3FC.
-Mount a rocket engine on a tricopter.
-Something for better tail-wag management is a must at low throttle.

Develop code, build, test, fly ect.
I can do most of that but my coding is a bit rusty… last time I worked on anything was 3 years ago when i was modding Supreme Commander. Beyond that I’ve over 20 years in electronics and i can design most stuff using Fusion 360 as needed. Unfortunately I am not a strong pilot (yet) but am not shy of crashing. After all each crash is a learning experience!
BTW there is a spammer in forums “josephgreen”

What next?? Ah well either a 2″, 3″ or 30″ prop tricopter.
Better yet, One capable of carrying a human! Not sure what the regs are over there, but I’m sure @David is more than capable of piloting such a craft!

How about a tricopter / ground vehicle combo?23 February, 2018 at 14:44 #47874BLeeKParticipant
Speaking of micro-tri’s, have you seen the “Awesome Dragonfly” 110 Y4?
I keep thinking remove rear two motors, zip/cable tie in a servo between two plate (IF there’s room) & then design & print a motor mount to go on servo…
Personally, I’d ditch the 4-in-1 ESC’s for some on the arms to save room- hopefully -to fit a RunCam Split Micro…
Wish I had the spare cash to experiment- perhaps an idea for someone else & let us know if its worth it??? 😉

4-in-1 esc saves weight and centralizes the copters mass.24 February, 2018 at 20:58 #57136RCExplorer – DavidKeymaster
I would love to make more videos and content in general. Currently I’m short on time as I’m working in Italy for 3 months.
But I’m still designing things whenever I have some time left over.
A general “make” video will be up soon of when I made a Meteor ring for Christmas.
It’s great to have you guys here to support me. Thank you very much24 February, 2018 at 22:16 #57139“OdinnFpv”Participant
words not needed, David is alive 😀 😛25 February, 2018 at 00:54 #57141
Other than Limoncello, wine and coffee, what’s in Italy ?
BTW, if you want a hand in design, I am free most dayz.
