Just Finished my X-Flight F-16 foamy kit. Took longer than I wanted but thats ok, seems to be worth the wait. The kit is exactly the same as the Phase-3 F-16 with the exception of the power system as the X-Flight doesn't come with one. This has a 5 bladed Alfa fan, CC45, CC-BEC, all running with Spektrum DX-7, Digital tail servos, 4S1P Lithium, and It will have a Custom CDR outrunner BL motor very soon(The day it shows up in the mail). I tried to get it as close to the real 1998 Tiger Meet FA-71 F-16 as possible, I guess its not bad for my first time. The Bird is glassed with .75 oz cloth and WBPU. I reinforced the tail control section with carbon rods and 1 oz fiberglass and dilluted epoxy. Seems pretty stiff but only time will tell. I can't wait for warmer weather so I can maiden this....

Been lurking RCG for a while but now I wanted to document my builds, crashes and lessons learned. My first bird was a Shogun/Zoom 400. After using the FMS sim for about a week I was totally ready to fly, so I thought. Gave it some throttle and it walked right into the side of my house and broke the boom and main blade. Later upon further inspection found the mainshaft was bent and it needed alot more tuning. So I upgraded to the Trex 450 . I love this bird, but recently have found myself more interested in fixed-wing flight and not so much with the rotary-wing. My first fixed-wing was a Ultrafly PC-9 I loved that bird , all the way up to the really bad radio glitch that caused a nose first full throttle dive into a farm field . So then I upgraded to a Spekrum and LOVE IT!!! I also got a GWS ME-109 that I am still in the middle of glassing and painting. I will put some pictures up here of the progress soon. Well that should be enough for my first entry. Thanks to anyone who read this!
