Its been rainy ... and windy the past week and a half ... so I have been looking over all of my planes and making sure they are ready to fly when good weather comes.
I still haven't maidened my SuperCub .... but I did put some new tires on it. I put some 2 3/4 inch tires and they look really good.
I discovered my Su-26 had more damage from the last crash than expected.
The motor has a bent shaft witch I will order when I get some money .... I spent my money at HobbyCity first. That should be an easy fix.
I upgraded the motor on my FunJet .... same KV ... same power ... just a lot lighter and I have the option of a four cell battery ... which will be sweet. I got it from Dons RC. I ordered a Hobby City motor to try out too.
My Rafale Jet has been acting weird ... last time I flew it , it was was WAY out of trim ... and I barely was able to land it. I centered all control surfaces and its ready to go again.
I also have to fix the nose gear stearing on my T-28 ... thats not going to be fun.
I ordered 3 new batteries .... a Watt meter ... a new motor and ESC so that stuff should keep me busy for awhile....

Well ... I do have a lot of planes .... and I do have a helicopter ....
Its an Art-Tech Falcon 3D that was given to me to learn on ... I tried to learn to hover and crashed it and it has been sitting in my room since. I think its been about 3 months.
I decided to buy the part that I needed to finally get it back in the air. I will have it set-up by an expert at my field ... and with some Simulator time ... I will try to learn how to fly it.
It will be fun ... I hope .... it will definitely give me something new to practice.
Here are some pictures ... and also some pictures of my first ever flying scratch-built plane .... I built it all the way back in JUNE 2009! Man I wish it was June .. winter getting old. I will probably rebuild that plane and with my new skills and try to get it to fly better !
