This is my plane hangar, ummm not, garage.
Well, plenty of planes anyway.
My trainers: Mini J3 Cub and Yak-12. Yak is very good trainer and has seen a lot of flying this summer, Mini J3 Cub not so, too heavy wing load on my setup (replaced the original motor with bent axel with Park 300).
Fun, self made depron planes: OSG, Yak-54 and the new 24" David (no maiden with David yet).
Then I've got two old ones from my friend when he decided to quit flying. A T-50 and Robotbirds Mustang. Both seem to have had a long and eventful life. Had to repair nose of the Mustang to get it airworthy, probably have to build new tail at some point, too. Haven't had opportunity to fly the T-50 yet. It looks bad (at least nose), but technically is ok.
And then the projects... Polaris and Puddle Twin 2. Should finish the nacelles for Puddle Twin and then it would be painting time... Finally, but not least: MX-2 for next summer aerobatics fun.
I also had tomhe's SU-31. But it passed away after very many hard flights and several minor and couple of more serious crashes. Very good plane, nevertheless. It's electronics serve now in the Yak-54.

Uhhh, I guess I need to start blogging a little. Somebody might even learn a thing or two from my screwups. And anyway it's winter here now, very slight change of actually flying. Winter is more building & simulator training season for us.
Next blog entries will include: my building projects, current planes, their stories and my experiences with them. I currently already have quite many of them and building process keeps them coming...
Anyways I'm quite new to hobby. Have a long history in everything related to airplanes and flying, but my RC flying experiences are from 2013. Building seems to be just as important to me as actually flying the planes. Currently I've got foam planes bought from stores and depron planes built by myself from drawings. Anything from gliders to acrobatics interests me.
