The right font motor snapped off while I was flying FPV this afternoon, and.... I don't know where it landed. Son and me posting reward flyers around the neighborhood and THANKS GOD, A young couples found my quad and call me back. I paid them a hundred buck for their kindness.
This time I had my fly camera high in the back of my quad, so I can see my two front motors while flying, easy for me to fly this way, for orientation. And I saw the right motor snapped off, then lost control.

I have this F15 crashed back on 2009, and never got a chance to put it back, until now. Hopefully this F15 doesn't mind his new look.
For fun, I also installed 2 E-sky gyros for Ali and Elv.
I will test fly it next Monday.

This is my build log for my Icon A5. You find this plane here:http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dproduct=16605

It is a standard build. I only made a few mod.
*I used fiber clothes and 15min epoxy on the weak point at the tail. After that, it is stronger and no more warp tail when motor started.
*As most ppl said that the front landing gear is too weak, so I am not using the landing gears. I used a wire stopper to fix the landing gear on place.
*I am going to fiber cloth and epoxy the belly tonight.

Two nano tech 3s 2600mah.

Just finished and maiden fly my MX2 this Tuesday. The Sun was going down, so I only flew it for 2 minutes and then have to land it. Realized that it flys too fast for me to land it safe.

So it ends up broke the prop after I killed the power tried to land it dead-stick.
Lesson: this kind of planes have to land with power and need a long runway.
Second, I need to install two fins at each wing tips, for easy observation.

I am still using the old Ni-MH battery on my TX, and the battery dry out very fast. Before I change to lipo, I created this Transmitter emergency charging cable.
Very simple, just take a look at the pictures, everyone can do it.

Please look closely on the pictures. From top to bottom, the 1st wire is - (negative), the 2nd wire is +(positive), and the 3rd wire is signal (orange or white color wire)

The Ar6110e orientation is opposite to the HK Orange receiver (aka 6100e)

In the Ar6110e, even you plug the ESC cable in the opposite way, the rx still power up, but it wont binds to your tx.

I just received my Cessna 182 from HK last weekend. It is only for 29.99 (kit), EPS foam. It is a beautiful scale plane, and it is big. The fat body is bigger than any foamies that I have before.
Here is the opening box video:
Cessna 182 EPS 1410mm HongKing.MOV (5 min 25 sec)

if the wind slow down next week, I will make a flying video for it.

I wish it is is EPP instead of EPO. So, I need coat it with a couple layers of Polycrylic to enhance the strength.
Last note, the motor mount base need to be epoxy.

Motor: HeadsUp RC, 3542-11 1100kv ;
Battery: Nano-tech 4s 2200mah 25~50C
ESC: HK Simple 50A
11" prop.

I just converted my JR7202a into Spektrum 2.4 with the DM9 module. Beside that, I am still keeping the 72MHz module. I installed two switches between the 72 module and 2.4 module. I just need to turn on the one that I need to use.
For those people who were giving me suggestions, thank you all.

This Su37 is based on Tomhe 's 6mmFlyRC Profile Sukhoi Su-37.
Here is the link:http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=803385

Instead of a jet motor, I put two EDF on it. These two EDF were coming from my crashed GWS F16.

I am still working on it, maybe a a few more hours.

Terrible accident happen to my newly NP Seniorita last week. I crashed it into the traffic light, yes, into the Red light:eek:

Hi all;
I used to bought a flat foam SU27 from BP hobby for $12. It flew pretty good, but I think it is too small (20"x30").
Now I enlarged it to 30"x40". Motor is using the GH2212-06 with 3cells 2200mah lipo. I also installed an E-sky Gyro to control the Alieron. Flying weight with battery is 580g. It flew very stabled even in windy day. I even saw it flew backward when again head wind, but kind of slow for a jet.
I just ordered a 870g thrust EDF from HC. I am doi ng the break-in now. I believed the EDF will make the jet screams.
Here are two very very low quality videos that I took it myself.
