Got a couple of new videos to share. This is my friend Gene's Starmax B-17 from Banana Hobby. The maiden flight and the second flight.

Below are my recent projects. The B-17 is a Multiplex Cargo conversion that I started about 6 years ago. I finally have some time to work on it again. I still have some more work to do on it, but I hope to fly it soon.

The other plane is a Nitro Hammer 20. It has been hanging from my ceiling for 20 years. I removed the old K&B .40 that was on it and replaced it with a 3548-1100 outrunner and a APC 10x7 SF prop. Powered by a 4s 4000mah battery. It flew fine, but overheated the the 50 amp esc I used, so I have replaced that with an 80 amp esc and mounted it with the cooling fins sticking out the side of the plane. Current draw measured 52 amps. No wonder it overheated. Looking forward to flying it this weekend.
