FLYING Leaf Blower RC airplane Mk2

FLYING Leaf Blower RC airplane Mk2
what's up streetball people i got called out i commented on a flight test video 6 out of 10. you guys should fly a real toilet alex commented okay we'll do that when you make a real

leaf

blower

fly without modifying it is that a challenge actually you know he's right last year we did this okay okay okay so basically yeah it didn't really fly very good it made a lot it didn't even make a live it just went down the runway and crashed good job sam you broke it it's a
flying leaf blower rc airplane mk2
disaster i have a bunch of theories on why it went wrong but i have some fly test foam which is a lot lighter foam than the poster board stuff i used last year so let's go ahead and get started and build this thing with last year's failures in mind it's time to build something a little bit more better and efficient so we're going to build a sail plane kind of glider

airplane

this year out of flight test foam board it's a lot lighter kind of stronger material rather than the
aluminum used last year and the poster board i'm lighting out these spars which is just popular the ear full selection is a lot more efficient too it's a regular glider airfoil and we're going to kind of make like a hybrid here to sandwich it together with this flight test foam board stuff it's going to be a polyhedral wing and it's going to be a three channel

airplane

just to kind of keep the controls to a minimum so it only has rudder and elevator now we're pretty much
just going to hot glue the

leaf

blower

on top because it just fits really well add a servo for throttle control and we're done all right so we're going to the airfield right now and the plane it's done the plane is basically a glider-style

airplane

with a lot more efficient airflow it's a lot lighter than the previous rendition of this so hopefully that means it's going to work great the good thing is oh no i stepped on the oh i stepped on it i was saying the good thing is
it's made out of this flight test waterproof foam stuff which is actually great because it's really moist out here today so i'm gonna go and assemble it try not to step on it anymore before we begin there's one slight caveat the trigger on this

leaf

blower

goes from zero to like 70. oh wait i took the battery out it goes from zero to 70. the problem is the problem is that i need 100 thrust and the only way to do it is to touch the stupid button because these

leaf

blower

s always
flying leaf blower rc airplane mk2
think this is a great idea so i'm going to take this rock to it but the problem is now we only have 0 or 100 there's no in between so it's going to be full of power all the time super important tip to always remember check the center of gravity of the

airplane

it feels pretty good bouncing about a third of the wing back one third of the wing back okay sam what are your thoughts on this

airplane

well you said it will probably work so meh that is not a number i want a number oh one to
ten seven seven all right five that's about one thinking all right you're going going you did to this guy three i don't know all right pick it up gently because you you wanna help the wind help i have like oh god the wind all right you ready to go just go yeah stay friends they're probably gonna break you ready

flying

a lot better than the last one even with the wing getting increasingly more dihedrally oh no oh oh oh oh oh it was definitely

flying

the spar was a little bit too
thin and the way sam pick it up kind of pre-broke the wing a little bit just a little bit uh let's go probably have to build another

airplane

yeah the spar is pretty nice the spar is fine yeah your crafty wing box design blew out you told me to glue it with epoxy man is it windy out here today the spars are both good so the aircraft seems to clean up a little bit and this thing is totally capable of flight because it kept going higher and higher until the wind gusts came and ripped the wings
off so this is totally gonna work we just need to rebuild the

airplane

again it's day two everybody we've fixed the wing spar there's zero winds so sam luckily will not be able to break it by holding the plane at horrible angles to the wind trying to snap the wings far in half oh scare me for a second so hopefully we can fly around and do one circuit because the challenge is the plane has to fly do one circuit land and then alex will have to make a toilet fly he's dead uh-oh
flying leaf blower rc airplane mk2
circuit board is bad a piece of crap freeze frame why'd i eat the battery across the field um it fell from 60 feet in the sky yesterday hit the circuit board directly on it damage the safety cuts in the battery so the battery obviously won't work for the leap lower anymore so we're gonna order a new one the battery is 122 freaking dollars for that all right whatever we're just going to order one okay boys it is day three now we have a new battery pack i think everything runs and
now we're going to try again to see if we can make the plane do one circuit come around and land all right let's do it all right all right i'm gonna look we're gonna go yeah it's actually not

flying

as well as it did yesterday oh no oh no i always thought it got any further somehow it's worse today oh no oh no it's not done yet i want to be done with this project by now okay let's see that's the good at least the lights on the led are this is the workings i
don't need to buy a new battery pack i'm going to fix it again it's another day hopefully we get it done this time because i'm getting real tired this is exactly like last year fly try to fly crash fly crash repeat want to blow my brains out and then it finally kind of blocks but hopefully this year we go further farther faster higher than ever before um yeah that wing is a little damaged i'm just gonna try to make one circuit all right so we're halfway there oh
that's working it's barely working but we are

flying

a

leaf

blower

awesome looking good still going higher turning it off coming in for the landing with that really bent wing look out sam this glass pretty good we did it we did it all right yeah you saw it there it is first

flying

stock non-modified

leaf

blower

let's fly some more so we're gonna put this thing on and i'm gonna show you how worse it's gonna fly because this is gonna restrict airflow and not make it better
yeah yes it's definitely thinking a little bit it sounds cooler for sure i always seem to get this flyby can you hear that sounds awesome man it still flies all right though that's awesome it sounds super rad this is cool so sweet let's fill up griffin's head all right ladies and gentlemen there you have it the world's first actual

flying

leaf

blower

airplane

unlike last year's attempt we actually made more than a few circuits did some kind of mild turning stuff
landed it successfully all on a stock

leaf

blower

with no modifications whatsoever i mean i take the rock to the switch and the servo to the thing but that's obvious let us know you want to see us fly next as far as the um power tools go because we did a drill plane in this other video now we have the

leaf

let plane okay
