Hey all,

I was just up at jasons store. He definatily has it going on. Even though he had his store open, was building Miss Hydros, Fixing a helicopter, running his store front, and entertaining a neighborhood kid, he still managed to put everything down and spend an hour with me. He even took me to his new store front so I could check it out. This man has alot on his plate.
Jason is donating one of the Miss Hydros to our the Lafayette High School Flyers Club. I am the moderator of the club there.
Chellie, first, thank you for donating to the club. Second Jason may have said it before but I'll say it to. Thank You for the help. Jason spoke very highly of you.

Jason, I will see you in a week to puick up the Miss Hydro. Thanks for all you time.

Chris

Thumbs up WooHoo

Just purchased a miss hydro, canít wait to get it, should be about 4 weeks before I see it. I Never flown anything before:o . I Donít know if will help me, but I used to race 10th scale RC buggies and trucks for about 3 years. That is the extent of my RC ing. I'm sure glad thereís a sim included. I heard thereís a way to hookup your controller to it, is that true?

I will use it as a boat while I am learning how to fly it on the sim.

I am open to all criticism and information to help me enjoy my newly acquired craft. So donít hesitate.

Hey hey everyone! I ordered my miss hydro 1.5 a little over two weeks ago. I think the ETA was 2-3 weeks, so i figured it should be here any day to two weeks. GITech001 I was wondering if you had any updated info on my order? Its going to Oregon, my name is Shane Carter. I also wanted to thank you for being so costumer friendly! When I ordered a Hydroflyer, they didn't say anything about back orders or anything, just said it would be there in a week. It took about 3-4, if it is going to take 3-4 weeks that is fine if the customer knows that. Thanks for keeping your site updated and replying to peoples questions! This costumer service will guarantee i will recommend you to anyone who is looking for a flyer!

Hi Tbergma1, Welcome to wattflyer, Glad to have you here, in this thread there is nothing but a bunch of party animals that love to fly these unstable lifting bodys they are a blast to fly, they take some getting use to, after you get the hang of it, they are pure fun, also I wanted to say Hi neighbor, I live in Azusa calif, I go out that way to go to the pechanga casino, i think i spelled that right, if not Oh Well that cell pro is a nice charger, I am looking into the cell pros big brother the balance pro, or the astro 109 lipo charger, as I am getting into 30 size electric helis with 6 cell lipos and 22.2 volts, my little triton charger wont charge this bigger battery, here is some more info on the cell pro if you need it,
the lipo that I bought from Jay that fits the Miss Hydro, has the standard 3 cell balance plug, I am not sure if you will need an adapter or not, check in the battery/charging threads, there are some smart people there that can tell you.

take care and have fun, Chellie

RatRoddd, i would just call him. Thats the only way i got of hold of him. This guy is frikken maddd busy. So please be patient.

Thanks Chellie, for your the introduction, you can call me Thor. Yes its my real name, I knew that was going to be your next question.

I bought the pigtails from fmadirect (for cellpro 4s), so all I have to do is solder them on the node wires, easy enough.

Hi Todd,

Sorry for the late reply, I am soooo busy and for some reason all your emails goto my spam box. Oh well.

The "RCV" hydro battery will not fit the Miss Hydro 1.5's custom cut battery placement for correct COG. I would recomend you GIT the correct GIT Lite Pro 11.1v 1500mah 3S1P 10C/15C 102 gram Li-po battery with Deans Plug battery but it will still fly with yours if you (maybe) tape it under the nose as far forward as posible.

The Fishing line is held in place with small squares of Lexon with a little hole in the center where I threaded it through and tied a knot so it would not pull back through the hole. Look vary closely at the pics in my image gallery for my old Miss Hydroplane, you sill see it.

For strengthening with tape....Tape has HUGE tensle strength (from end to end) so place it in that orientation wherever you feel the Depron or EPS needs reinforcement. Such as the tail pieces, the outside side and bottom of the sponsons(use packing tape for the EPS and trim it for a nice fit). Basicaly, look at a piece and say to yourself...'in a crash...how would this be stressed'...and place a piece of tape there the long way.

The glue takes about an 2 hours to set up to the point you can manipulate the part. But give it 24 hours to cure fully in most cases.

The rudder servo is simply held on with the glue.

Glue the Standard Clip Control Horns in place...front and back.

The Z-bends are secured to the Carbon Fiber Control Links with the shrink tube and set using a drop of CA(super glue).

Hint: Glue only one end/Z-bend until you are calibrating the controls after the electronics are installed. That will allow you to make fine adustments. Then glue them up!

The drawing that I included with your kit lets you know where the COG should be.

Cut the motor mount poles' mount all the way through. This will allow room for the GIT Lite Pro 11.1v 1500mah 3S1P 10C/15C 102 gram Li-po battery with Deans Plug to be placed/slid in underneath it in the hot wire cut...cutout.

Every "HINGE" should be taped the long way and if you wish...place a piece of tape perpendicular to the hinge at each side/end of each hinge to provide a sigificant increase in hinge strength.

After you tape the hinges...pre-bend them to 45 degrees. This will free them up. You may have to apply pressure on the top side of the hinge point itself to help compress the Deprons core durring bending/pre-stressing.

Well, let me know if you have any more questions!

TTYL,
Jay

By the way if you have a controler something like this
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/pr...CONTENTID=6951

Thumbs up Practice hydro flying

Yep, I think you will be happy with the Miss Hydro 1.5! I install the Carbon Fiber control links in the control horns in such a way that the rudder has MAX movement and the elevons move at the ~3/8 inch amount that Chellie is refering to durring the build process. So you will not have to do this yourself.

To increase movement of the elevons once you GIT the hang of it just move the control links up to the "top" position on the servo control horn. You will see when you GIT your Miss Hydro 1.5 in about 3 weeks.

Use the FMS links I provided in the begining of this thread to practice in the meantime! Though your Miss Hydro 1.5 will ship with my version that has over 50 models on it, use this for now to a head start!

You should GIT in about 10-20 hours in on the FMS sim if you have never flown any 4ch acrobatic plane before.

Use a dual annalog control pad like a "logitech dual action" and set your annalog pad controls from top to botom in this order 1,4,3,2,1,4,3,2 so you can GIT your automatic muscle reflexes ready for the REAL THING!

Thanks for the orders and thanks Chellie for your support!!!!!!

I owe it all to my customers and fans for making this all possible!!!!

TTYL everyone,
Jay

Hi Thor, Hi Everyone, if you want to get some practice flying in, Jay has this post with lots of info on it, to get you started flying, Gee I wish I had this info when I started flying my hydro it was crash & burn & repair for me, Jay gave me a lot of help, and then I was able to fly these hydros,

here is a controller that you will need, its about $20.00

Hey guys and gals,
I stopped down at Git-A-Hobby again and Jason hooked me up. We got our Miss Hydro (Jason has alot of faith in me and my students, he wants us to build it.) He also hooked us up with a second hydroplane (obviously an inferior German knock off of his) and a foamie with a brushless to build. can anyone say "This guy is great!" Jason we will keep you up to date with how the build is going (wether it is through phone calls or just your ears ringing) and try to keep every one else up to date with the club. Thank you Jason and Watt Flyer for all the help
