New Build And Reviews Soon

The posting problems have been fixed, so here is last Sunday’s post:

Say hello to the first successful  plane I’ve built.

 

I don’t have much to say today, but two more planes will come in in a few days, so stay tuned for reviews of those. I was also given a DX7 about three weeks ago, which I happily replaced my DX6 with. The DX6 will be a perfect tx to keep as a back up and maybe as a travel tx.

Also, I’ve made my first successful RC plane. It’s funny that it’s successful; all of my other attempts were very carefully drawn and measured. For this one, I just cut it to a size that looked nice. I’ll spend some more time fine-tuning it, measure it, make a final model, and then I’ll post the build guide and maybe a review of it.

In other news, I have given up on the quad copter build because the flight times were just too short. The forum isn’t launching yet as I haven’t gotten anyone for the launch yet.

Thanks for reading today’s post. New post next Sunday!

Happy New Year: Updates to umFlight

Firstly, happy 2015! I chose to schedule this post for exactly 12:00 AM on January first so I could have it posted at exactly the moment that 2015 came to be! Pretty cool that this is one of the only blog posts posted right now…

umFlight is, I’m glad to say, still here and in its second year. I have had some record-breaking amounts of visitors and page views during December, and I hope that those people who visited in December enjoy umFlight.

1. Welcome to umFlight 2.0. umFlight, I have calculated, has been on the Internet for 137 days so far! I’m thinking about adding some things, which I go into detail about below.

2. Most of the near future (except the first “official” post next Sunday which will be about… well, wait and see!) will be product reviews. I was gifted several new planes on Christmas and I still have a few that I haven’t yet reviewed, so expect more reviews than usual mixed in with other posts in the coming months.

3. Reader’s Opinion is here to stay. Reader’s Opinion will continue this year, with RO4 being posted, of course, on the second week of January.

4. Multirotors. I WILL be posting about quadcopters. They will be mixed in with RC planes.

I’m also considering rolling out a huge update to umFlight soon, with a new theme, possibly a guest post form, a forum, and more things I haven’t thought about yet.

However, keep in mind that I’m only considering this at this point. If you have any questions, criticisms, ideas, compliments, or or comments in any way, about new things that may be added to umFlight, be sure to leave a comment below. Just remember that I’m still just considering this; even actually having an update is still undecided.

Thanks for reading the first umFlight post posted in 2015 (and for reading what may possibly be one of the only posts posted at the second that 2015 came into being)…
