My heli's all have floats on them,,so why not my new Blade 350QX>? LOL
I added some floats on my 300X for a new twist. All electronics were waterproofed with corrosionX. Lots of fun!
Getting used to the CP flying. So far about 25 flights w/ the Nano. Love my mCPx and 130X too! A 300 may be in my future...!!? (Way in the future LOL)
The Nano is GREAT to learn CP heli flying!! This thing takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin'!!
Thought I'd try it since I am always flying float planes!!
I'm really enjoying my freshly built MAKO seaplane. This baby is a fun plane to fly with it's aerobatic lighter weight airframe. This video is on the maiden flight,, and I was doing inverted passes and felt very comfortable doing them!
Picked this up used and added floats to it. What a beautiful looking and flying plane!
The ice is gone so I took out my Seadart on the lake for the first time! She flew very nice!
Hopefully I will get some onboard video next time...
I cut down the prop nacelle mount for the Polaris and added a 70mm EDF. She runs on a 4S 1850 battery. Lots of power but I'm only getting about 3-1/2 minutes of run time. To be expected I guess.... I may look into a larger battery but that may add too much weight. I also put the rudder in the jet-stream blast to allow for turning while taxiing! She flies great though! Love it!
So I have to give all the credit to "Velyter" here on RCG for giving me this idea! I removed the old motor pod and added a 55mm EDF on my Coota. And, as promised, it worked very well! Well..... at least until the ESC quit and it went ker-splash!! LOL
I should have added some cooling for the ESC since the coota originally flew fine with a smaller 20A but I had to use a 30A for the EDF w/ a 4500KV motor. Sooo, back to the drawing board for a few mods. Luckily, only the EDF just broke clean off and a litle hot glue will fix her up just fine! Here's the vid of it:
Very nice plane to fly! She slows down to a crawl if you want her to! A definite keeper for my fleet!
Took my Drongo out for the maiden flight yesterday on the snow and I am impressed on how well it flies! I just had to give a few clicks of trim but that was it. Very fun and fast plane to fly! It just feels very light in the air and rolls are nice and axial and landings are slow, smooth and predictable. Pretty much vertical performance too!
I am using the same motor as on my Polaris (2212-6) but it appeared to be a bit faster than the Polaris. The weight came in at just about 17 oz. w/ a 2200 3S battery. My Polaris weighs in at about 21 oz. w/ an 1800 3S so that probably explains the speed difference.
Shoveled an airport on the ice so I can take-off....
I love this jet and the F9F Panther. Nice flying EDF's!!
I received the new F-9F for Xmas from HL and love it. These little affordable jets from HL are great. I also have the Mig-15 and the F-86. Here's a pic of the F-9F ready for take-off on the frozen lake.
I just received my new ICON A5 from China. It has an 1800mm wingspan, mechanical retracts, flaps, etc. This will be the biggest aircraft I have flown so far since all mine are parkflyers in the 27" to 55" wingspan. Its powered off a 22 volt LiPo. I hope to assemble it this weekend.

I upgraded my cheap Nitroplanes Catalina and added two 2212-10 brushless motors and a 2200mA LiPo battery. SOO much better than a NiCd battery and 400 brushed motors. She takes off VERY quick and has plenty of power for acrobatics. Love it now!!
And she flies great! Love it!
Flew my cessna w/ floats. I used a Flycamone2 camera.
My motor quit and I took the Polaris in fast so I didn't have to retrieve it from the water. Fast and hard landing but no damage to the Polaris. I love this plane!!!
