Well I bought a Nitroplanes L-39 when they where on sale for 99.00(Black Friday sale) And had a Rclander Red Cyclone 64mm metal edf laying around so here we go. First the kit is the red pip squeak ARF. I took the stock fan out and replaced it with the Red cyclone fan. Then scuff sanded it a little and applied 3oz fiber glass cloth with Minwax poly acrylic. I then painted the jet similar to Justin Sandes L-39 I saw on youtube. I used testeors enamal paint in the rattel can.

For ESC a I am using a Turnigy 60 amp Plush with built in BEC. Servos are what came with the ARF. For power I am using a Rino 2200 40c 4cell Lipo Barley gets warm after a 5 to 8min flight. The Cyclone fan performs great but needs a high C rating before it really moves out. Plane it self is a very good perfomer.

This is my first Nitroplane but not my last. I haven't radar gunned it yet. But it is faster than my phase 3 F-16 on 3cell with 2200ma 30c Lipo, that I gunned at 96 MPH out of a dive and 89 mph level pass. I know it was a lot of work to glass it and paint it but hey thats the fun of it!!!!! Well then again I like it LOL....

Well I decided to put retracts in my Ultrafly fw190. This was a first for me as I am new to putting in retracts. I decided to buy Hobby king Mini air retracts and they are very affordable at $56.00. So as this was my first at cutting into the wing, I followed a few examples from some of the post on here. I have posted a few pic's and a video. I have also installed a bomb drop from Hobby lobby and it works great also. I am still working on a in flight video and hope to have one soon.
