Alright guys, I wanna see who out there is a sound system guru like I am. I am ordering new speakers for my truck, they are going to be pulling 80 watts RMS, 160 watts max. I am going to wire these to a 600 watt 4 channel speaker, so each speark can pull 150 watts. I have aftermarket everything right now, pioneer speakers, fosgate subs, everything. I'm running 3 15 inch punch p1 subs to a 2000 watt amp, and am getting the power T1572 speakers, but I want to run a separate amp to those, can I just solder an 8 gauge y from a 4 gauge power wire to run to both amps? Or would that be to much of a load on the battery? Would I need dual battery?

Hello fellow RC'ers, I just want to share a little something with you guys. I've been working towards getting my private pilot's certificate since the beginning of August. I was enjoying every single bit of it, I loved my flight instructor, he is a very knowledgeable man. He owned a Piper Warrior 2, which became the plane that I eventually wanted to own, N158EA. He was the only person in the county to rent his plane out, and always had somebody taking it somewhere. It was a sweet and gentle aircraft. Last Friday, a former student of his decided to take his wife flying in this beloved aircraft, but with a devastating ending. Upon taking off, the wind had pushed the plane into the trees, where the wings were sheared off the airframe, and crashed. This crash killed the pilot, and severely injured his wife, whom I know personally, as she works at my school. http://www.connectmidmissouri.com/ne...aspx?id=731711 here's a link to the plane, just wanting your guys' thoughts on this one, but for any pilots out there, I hope this just helps you to make sure that your on your tip toes when it comes to flying. THIS DOES HAPPEN. Thanks a bunch for reading.

so, I finally almost have it done. A couple of extensions and a servo arm later and its done Just somethin' I would put out there, if you own this jet and lose the screws for the wing, the screws for the Parkzone Corsair fit perfectly. I just ordered me some, and I tested it out with the spare that the Corsair comes with. No flight yet, but hopefully soon

So, think this through. You guys who have like a billion planes all stacked up in your hangar, how often do you actually get to fly those planes? Out of all those, do you really get to fly every single one? Now, I know my room may be a bit messy, but at the moment I only have 4 flying. Just something to think about

I took some pictures of my runway in my backyard. It doesn't look to great right now because of the weather, but when its dry, I have tons of fun on it. I will eventually get it paved one of these days once I get some $$$

So, my computer is all debuged and workin' better than it did. Here are some pics of my Lynx with my custom paintjob on it. I also finally ordered some motors from donsrc.com. I went with the big Wicked 4800's and 40 amp ESC. Am eager to get these, so I can fly this big bird! After this, I am probably gonna get my first Dx7. That will be intersting to see how that turns out.

My computer just recently got totally bugged, so for anyone who i might be talking to about whatever, i am deeply sorry if i cannot get to you in time. Lately, my really good friend has been letting me use his, but that is only when he can let me. sorry if i can't update everything at once, but i will do it sometime (maybe )

So, I unfortunatley sold my SU-27, but I got a new Executive Jet to take its place. It only needs the motors and then it's RTF. I also got my Lynx up and flying. I love doing the high speed low passes. My Cessna 182 has a camera mounted on the bottom of it now, and I love taking shots with it. I just recently learned how to do a good crisp hover to. Here is my new fleet.

Hello people visiting my blog. I just thought that I would show some photos of my planes that I have flying right now. I only got pictures of three of them, but right now I have a total of 7. I know that to a lot of RCers out there, 7 is a pretty low number. I take pride and joy in flying these. Also, I love to do aerial photography. I have a Flycam one2 mounted on my Electro Trainer. It works great and I will get shots of my private runway later This is my modified Easystar. It had so many scratches and cuts and other things in it, I decided to spray her down for the fourth of july. I also upgraded the motor just a little to Speed 480 for that extra boost. I love this plane and will never let it go. This is my one F-86 Sabre. Great flying ducted fan jet that is to much fun! It flies just as good on a windy day as it does calm. Yet another plane I could never let go. and my last picture for now, my Su-27. It is my first EDF, and I have never crashed it. I have also upgraded it from old brushed 350's to JETSCREAMERS!!!!!! Wicked fast man!
