Hi everyone Since I started flying I've really had a great time.
I've met alot of new people and have learned a great deal about this hobby and have cra......Uh.......had a few hard landings that resulted in me learning how to fix my planes to the point that I believe I can build one from scratch with nothing but a nicely drawn plan or layout and a pile of balsa or foam to work with.
I've messed with rewinding a motor I fried and have it ready to put back together and try it.I've checked to make sure there were no shorted winding and made a final connection a Delta style as oppose to a Star termination and all should be good...I hope.....
Anyway, What I wanted to add was this little plane I just built tonight off a plan I found on 6MMFLY RC designed by Tomas Hellberg of a F-22 Raptor. I'm also going to build the bigger version tommorrow if I get the chance...
I do not have electronics for this little guy yet and don't know where to start looking so if you guys have any suggestions I'd be greatful for the tips..
Oh just for fun I balanced it with paper clips and it has a great glide rate and response great if one of the tailerons is at a different angle to the other.

Hey everyone, My names Chris and I'm just starting in rc airplanes.So far i love it and have two planes now:the HZ Supercub and the PZ T-28 Trojan.
I've learned alot here on this site and still have alot to learn.
When I'm not flying or working I'm at home with my three girls:my wife Kelly and my two girls Kassidy who is five and Cora whois two.
my other hobby is high performance cars that not only look good but can back that good look up with performance.So far the best looking car I've had the chance to work on is my dads 1966 mustang which is the 2007 mustang week best of show and is in the August issue of Mustang Monthly.
have a great day and here are some pictures of the mustang.
