I have done so much and have been very busy!

Since my last post I have....
-Completed my Eagle Project and am awaiting my Board of Review
-Recieved a Trex-250 clone for christmas and have build and flown it( It's awesome!)
-Have been working on the ParkScaleModels TwoMosa that I purchase at the NEAT fair.(Just have to cover it!)
-Build a Tricopter 2.0, shortened the arms, reshrunk the esc's, but the most important addition is a kkmulticopter board!. Test flew it for the first time today, it flys great!
-Purchased a GoPro HD, for taking many more videos both FPV and normal.
-Been flying my Yak 55 like crazy! I picked this thing up at the NEAT fair too, and I love it!
- School......well it's a really busy year so far, hope to keep bloggin!


I will try to have photos of all of these posted by the end of the month.

Thanks,
Jon

For my Eagle Project I am building a firewood shed near a pavillion at a local park. I was able to get the frame up this weekend!

I had already leveled the ground, poored the conrete foundation, and precut all the wood. The frame went up fast.

P.S. Sorry for the bad quality photos

It wasn't an awful crash, and at least it was funny. The damage and cost of repairs was $7. Gotta love the durability of the Tricopter. Here are some pics after the repairs.

1) Multiplex Funjet- Video of a Crash, Pics of aftermath, Pics before.
2) Axon Raptor GS Micro- Pics
3) Scratchbuilt Foamies- T.V. F-22, Polaris with vid of maiden. Pics of both.
4) Multiplex Easyglider FPV plane. Pics, vid of maiden. Info thread attached.

I realize I will have to update this with more blog posts, but that's fine. I hope you enjoy what I have done so far. I would include more of my fleet, but that what I have time for now. I hope to edit this with more pics of the planes in the air.

Thanks to all that look,

Here is my Multiplex Funjet, it flies really well. I just recently upgraded the power system and it hit somewhere in the 90's now. I have had 2 crashed. The first crash was minor. I got it on video, but it's bad quality. The second time, it got stuck in a tree, and got some dents all over, nothing too serious. I also had the esc burn up in flight once, and it landed itself!

Funjet failure (0 min 21 sec)

I no longer own this plane, but it sure was fun to build and fly.
Highly Recommended.

The F-22 was fun little guy that took me a few days, but eventually crashed do to cg

My next scratchbuilt is my Polaris. This took me quite a while to finish. The video is bad quality, but it is something.

She flies nice, can't wait for my next build.

I have to say, I really enjoyed this first build of mine. I am normally used to foamies but this was great. I am already looking into other kits. I hope to post the video of the maiden sometime next week. I plan to do the maiden either today, or on Sunday.
