I wanted something big enough to use 15" props on. Digging around in the "Parts Bin" I found enough to get something started.

I wasn't very sure what to build next...
I was looking for something different, something I could take to the field and be sure no one else was going to have.

After going in circles for a while, my friend Mick came up with this idea: "Why don't you build a Horten Ho-229? It's a wing, a glider, and a jet with twin engines."

It looked like quite a challenge. I was dubious at the beginning, but then I found some plans for a big balsa version and soon realized I could build it in foam.
After a short while, I was totally sold on the idea.

I must confess, though... it's been the most challenging build I've ever done. But it's also been very rewarding.
Seeing that bird up in the air is quite a sight. It has a lot of presence, is very fast, it glides when cutting power... very interesting.

Here is the Build Log, and below you can find some videos and pictures.

If anyone knows of any RC sites that are looking for reviewers, editors, etc., then please let me know! I'm looking to make some more money to fund the hobby, and would love to involve RC in this quest. I have experience with cars, planes, and helicopters when it comes to this hobby.

Hello friends

I want to share with you my experience with a micro spy helicopter, which integrates a video camera on board.

Its more a kind of toy-ish heli, but the video recording is a nice add for a heli this price.

This heli was buyed on, and as usual, it took 3 weeks to arrive to Ecuador. The packing was nice, and keep the inners of the box safe from the long travel.

A funny fact in the box it says that the heli includes 130 mega pixel camera LOL. Usually it happens in all the items produced in China, because of bad translators. Luckly, it didnt affect at all the performance of the heli.

Let me tell you some specs of this heli:
  • 3.5 Channel IR transmitter
  • Coaxial design, which makes it very stable at flight
  • 300Kpx image sensor, records video at 320x240 @ 25fps
  • Video is recorded in a 1GB SD card (included)
  • Includes battery, USB charger, spare blades, and USB card reader for download videos

Inside the box, the unit and the transmitter comes protected with a clear plastic cover. More protection for the heli in the long trip from the store to your home

I am inviting my friends to take some time to view this video. If all we get from this life is merely spending our entire time in this wonderful hobby, we will miss out on the biggest thing coming at us ever.

It looks like I will be flying solo for a while. I need to concentrate on my flying skills and spend less time cracking jokes. This weekend I didn't visit the local flying field, I stayed to my local private spot to work on my Habu maneuvers and 450 flying skills.

It's amazing that I can be so calm and and collected when flying the Habu that I can pretty much do whatever I want with the plane. I remember last year as soon as it took off the ground I wanted to land it. My favorite part of the weekend was a little girl screaming out of excitement when I did multiple consecutive barrel rolls....good times.
On the Heli side if's funny that all I do is hover and scoot around and I actually find it more exciting than flying my jet. I need to adjust the TX for a more aggressive setup now. I can't wait to get confident enough to take out my 500 3d!

nothing beats learning on a solo field

We went to Visalia this year with a plan to make a showing and did! I placed 1st in RES Open with the Oculus & placed 2nd with the E-Oculus in ALES. We also had six Oculi's on the field. In the 21 years I have been a manufacture I have never had that many planes of mine in one place at the same time together. Next year I hope to see more.

Hey guys!

This is my latest Pole Cat video and it has been months since I last flew it. It was sure fun and I plan to start flying it more often:

Parkzone Ultra Micro Pole Cat BNF RC Plane Fun and Battery Fail (2 min 43 sec)

PS: That battery that failed on take-off was a Hyperion.

Finessing the 5th scale design, and got the bill of materials done. Getting ready to order materials and build up a batch towards the end of the year.. Still have to make some little bits to finish up the 6th scale gear too, but lathe is giving me troubles.
