this is my work in progress scratch build EC-130. i drew it up in solidworks and had the plug CNC cut. now i have the plug covered in Fiberglas and i am sanding it smooth. the heli will have custom mechanics and rotorhead so that the entire interior can be modeled....Continue Reading

This is my 50 size apache, its a balsa kit. it has the mechanics for my 30 size twinstar in it converted to electric using the trex600 components running on 6 cells. i made a longbow conversion for the original a model, you can get it at starwoodmodels.com. this heli also has the hellfire missile set available for it. i made the 30mm cannon with a 3D printer and if you want one let me know by PM. my plans for this heli this year are to finally finish the cockpit and add the 4 bladed head to the main rotor and tail....Continue Reading

this is my 450 size AS350 from rc aerodyne, it was a nice little fuse but getting the factory paint of was a pain. i added some surface detail and a new paint job. i like this little guy to fly at the park with my son. the mechanics are a clone and they work alright for what i paid for them.

here are my global corsair and my GWS FW-190.
the corsair never really flew well but i love that french suez canal paint job. i am currently revamping my PZ corsair to look just like that, i cant wait to get it in the air. the other plane id my GWS FW-190, this has to be the best flying parkflyer i have ever had. even with the stock motor it flies very scale like. i am planning to put the pz corsairs motor in it after i get a bigger one for it. also looking to add retracts and flaps in the next few weeks.

this was my second scale helicopter. it was a detailed and re-painted thunder tiger fuse using raptor 50 mechanics. ecerything went to gether perfectly on this one and it was ablst to do. unfortunatly it went down on its 3rd flight because the pilot (me) is a fng moron. i ran the antenna wire to close to the muffler, it vibrated loose and melted to the muffler and the heli went down..its been 2 years and i am still kicking myself in the head for that mistake...but not to worry a bigger replacement might be in the works...

figured i might start using this blog thingy to keep some of my photos online in case i need them. this one was my first scale heli. it used hawk mechanics and the fuse was made by century. i flew the snot out of it but unfortunatly during summer it was underpowered so i retired it.
