Hi to all my friends here on RCG! Here is my latest scratchbuilt RC fighter jet project the Black Tiger space fighter from Star Blazers AKA Space Cruiser Yamato. . . . These little beauties are powered by a 50mm DR. Mad thrust edf unit optimized from the 4 cell 14 volt lipo . . It puts out 1.2lbs of thrust and the tiger weighs in at 1.5 lbs in the air. . . After the short maiden flights it's now obvious a more powerful 64mm edf must be installed.
Both Black tigers are undergoing minor repairs and will be ready for more flights Soon. Enjoy!...Continue Reading

Well This marks my first scratch-built quad-copter frame and I've learned a valuable lesson . . . . make sure the Mother-board and motor arms are all rigid and NEVER twist opposite of eachother, Well Live & learn LOL
Hi DemonDriver here, I wanted to share my conversion of the Estes Micro Syncro Quadcopter into a RC ROBO-Hummingbird., The body of the humming bird is 100% scratch-built from Super-light weight Styrofoam.
Its So Tiny it can fit inside the PanAm globe of my L-1011-500.
And she flies pretty well! BTW Its a Black Chinned Hummingbird....Continue Reading
Hi DemonDriver here and I wanted to share My Latest scratch built Quadcopter design the Recognizer from the 1982 and 2010 Tron movies, I made the recognizer from Styrofoam and carbon fiber and added glow in the dark tape to its edges to give it that Cool Look!
Hey Like I always say if you can dream it You can build it . . . .and make it fly!...Continue Reading
This is what you can build from an ordinary foam pool noodle! I call this the "Demon-Claw" 3D plane! My own original design. ... it's so easy to make you don't even need plans just watch my build video coming up in a day or two that will also have the maiden flight !
My Demon-Claw is so easy to build ANYONE can build it!
I started the Build thread almost a year after I actually started the Plane
I accually finished it in 2009 and almost flew it as a Bungle-Launch belly lander, then in late 2009 moved down to South Carolina put this Demon-girl on Ice.
But Now I'm in the Finial stages of getting her ready for her maiden, I have now added her retracts, and I have to add ther Balsa control surfaces, Decals, Servos, and New 5inch EDF and 120Amp ESC and Its Maiden Time!
This Thread will cover the Finial stages of This Eight year Project and Her Maiden Flight!...Continue Reading

Project Mega-Ton is Basically my design & planning phase of a Three Jet Bomber Project, The B-52, The B-47, and B-58 Jet Bombers of the 1950's and 60's and of course the Buff is still on active duty today.
I'm starting a conversation on who would like to build one of these Jet-Babes or build one along with me or buy one of the three. What I'm hoping to do is build 2-3 of each a year and sell them.
Also I want this thread to be a think-tank on how I or we would build these Bombers.
Also I hope to turn this thread into a build Log for all three Bombers, I want your Input, Ideas, questions, and thoughts.
I'm hoping to start this Project in Late Summer possibly August and use this time to finalize my Hand drawn Plans and hammer out problems in design and manufacturing.
I will Upload some pics of my Hand Drawn plans for each Bomber. .. . Please note I'm still working out the Plans and they are still penciled and have not been "Inked-In" yet.
At the end of the Day I build RC aircraft for a living and I believe there is a HUGE demand for RC EDF Jet bombers . . . .Now Its time to see if thats true.
I wanna give props to Great RC Bomber Builders Carl Bachmuster, Dag, KFC, and Old-Sparky, Jmorgan, and Greenseaships, These Builders are Truly Great and I could Not even attempt to build these Birds without Them doing it first.
I'm Going to Build These Bombers! "So let it be written . . . . So let it Be Done"!
