too bad it's been raining...'cause I'm looking forward to flying my new JK Aerotech Corsair.

..it's a .25 sized combat plane...all solid foam & tape,but I'm using mine as a sport flyer.

Powered by Saito .30 four-popper.The mount also fit the small case Saito .40a and most .25 2 cycle engines.This should be fun.

AUW ~46 ozs.

I built one of these waay back in 2003,it was electric powered (I used a brushed 480 on 8 cells.It flew but it was underpowered.I did like the fact that it was almost indestructo...& it flew decent & does all the usual aerobatics.

...fast forward to 2013 I've built another T-52,glow powered.I had it out yesterday for some early winter fun.Powered by an old OS 15 I had..the remainder of RC gear was stuff I had laying around.

Fun plane,it's covered in deep yellow Ultracote & green tape.AUW 2 lb.2ozs.

Flying together with clubmembers in the fall is always fun.

Over this past summer I have swapped several engines in the UPROAR..finally settleing on a Saito .50 as my fav.Easy to start..plenty of power and it's easier on the glow fuel.

Our club has held several fun fly-ins where we had fun..all perfectly safe also.Here are a few pics of 2011 planes & my fav bud pilots.

yes...after watching the guys in my club fly these Tower UPROARs I had to build one..an easybuild,even for slow me.

...it could be e-converted...if I try that I'll just build another...power it with 4A123 cells for about 450-500 watts.


...anyway,I've flown the glow UPROAR five times,still gotta fine tune the carb,but it's really a fun sport plane.You'll notice I mounted the engine with the cylinder horizontally...so the exhaust goes under the plane.Cleanup isn't too bad.
