Well I did it again .. this time it was totally in control.

I was doing rolling circles and gave the wrong input and paniced .. and down it went .

Nose first .....

I didn't think I could repair it but I did .....

If I had a little more cash ... I would buy a 3DHS 42" Slick ... but I need a little bit more cash ... maybe I can get one used.

I had to repair the whole motor box ... again ... this time myself and I think I did a good job. Its not as pretty .. but very strong.

I broke the fuse in the same place ... not to bad ...

I am still using the same cowl .... its pretty ugly ...

This plane has been through heck ... but I will continue to fly it until I can buy something else ... which should be soon.

The worst news is ....... School starts Monday !

The Nightflyer Cub is born ...

Some LEDS .... solder ... ALOT of solder and about 5 hours and this is born ...

My first Nightflight will be sooooooooon.

The Sukhoi is still flying ... I have been adding weight to the tail .... it makes 3d more fun.

I am thinking about getting a 3DHS 99$ Edge or Slick ... but I need some funds before that.

I have a lot of planes ... and I need to retire some .... its hard to just stop flying a plane ...

My T-28 is getting old .... I keep replacing servos in it ..
My FunJet is beat up ... Its been abused and its starting to show ...

If I retired those three planes ..... I could add some 3D planes to my fleet ....

The Sukhoi lives ... after a balsa rebuild ... it lives to fly again.

The motor box is completly redone and its super strong.

I want to thank Chris (aero104) for helping me ... I wouldn't have been able to do it with out him.

The plane now has a Castle Creations BEC ..... the only bad thing is that it was stolen from my car at the flying field... ( I think ) .... so I had to buy another one ...

The T-28 also got a new elevator ... the old one flexed off in flight ..... I took some pictures of comparison from the old one and new one. WOW it is dirty.

This is my first Castle Creations product ever ... I hope it works ..... I could have bought the Turnigy ...

New project is the TwinJet which I am taking my time on ... money is tight so it will take me awhile to save up for all the stuff.

I was flying my nice Eflite Sukhoi plane today ... doing the normal things ....

Snap to hovers , knife edges .. tumbles and spins.

I love how Spektrum has this feature in its reciever called "brownout".

The reciever must have know I was doing these wild and crazy maunuvers. This new feature called brownout actually helps you stop these !

It cuts of the signal of the reciever and causes you to crash ! Yay ... now your plane isn't doing those crazy manuvers !

WHAT A GREAT DESIGN !



....................... NOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!

It totaled my Sukhoi .. NOOOOOO ! Never again ... time for a new radio.

In With The New ....

The Micro P-51 met its end .... I replaced the motor .. but all the repairs I had made caused the plane to fly terrible.

I did a loop and got stuck in a tree ... so I hit it down and the fall destroyed the plane .... but

I did get a NEW Plane ! Wahooo !

I got a Mig-15 EDF from a friend who wasn't flying it anymore. It needs a little work but its almost done.

Tomorrow is the maiden ... if I can get it fixed and setup.

I will probably retire my Rafaela Jet ... or give it away ..

I will also upload some cool pictures I took at my flying field.

I also crashed my T-28 inverted ... its ok ... I just had to get a new canopy.
