this was done back in Aug

started out as

Heli canopy

its use as an canopy with a conveniently battery access point up the front and air vents. not sure yet for 3d flying but the design have flown as scale.



Fixwing Aircraft

this is the kicker and the highlight of the action . and did several chases with other aircrafts in the field. Adequate performer in the air.despite being slightly underpowered.

just like in real Air Crash investigation this model one of the early generations of Foamie planes unfortunately on April 26 ,14 it met its end when structural fatigue takes its toll in a spectacular mid air disintegration. reconstruction of this airframe shows its construction being EPS/PS type material typical used for models of that Era , the owner told me he had it for 6-7 years. and its a well care model.
discoloration of the wings shows its age. and this plane is build before carbonfiber is widely use in RC application so in the cross-section of the damage wing shows layered PS material with a outer coating as an shell.

so now we know how long EPS models should last. before its deem unfit to fly.
I doubt if its still capable of flight even on a lighter power setup, judging by how brittle the wing structure are.

would like to Celebrate this Holy Week/Easter With an RC Reference.
to some verses with some of Our RC model posing in the shots.




Psalm 23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He make me to lie down in green pastures: he lead me beside the still waters. He restore my soul: he lead me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.Thou prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
