Like a Dog Chasing its tail ... my T-28 chased a streamer attached to its tail.

I cut the streamer eventually.

T-28

All stock except for motor

Axi 2808/20 really gives this thing some punch

It is in the repair shop due to a run in with the ground , it should be ready to go tomorrow!

Multiplex Funjet ....

Flys ... Well I have only flown it once .. its a pain to hand-launch ... I have yet to successfully
do it myself ... ugh.

It has a Hi-Max motor , Multiplex Speed Control and Multiplex Servos.

Blade MCX

Its broke .. not sure if its fixable .. might have to toss it ...

I got this today at a swap meet for 30 bucks without the receiver and battery , but still a heck of a deal.

I plan to use 1800 mah batteries or 1300 mah batteries.


Its all stock and I have never flown it.

Its kinda rough but for 30 bucks ... its going to be great !

It has a lot of power !

This is my AMX Jet made by J-Power.

I got this from the Local Hobby Shop for a sweet 125 bucks with receiver and battery.

Its all stock and flys spectacular .... I just wish it had a landing gear !

Here are the new videos I just made with my new Ariel Camera !

I even chase deer !

I saw it at the far end of the field and went after it. I closed in and got some Ok shots , I am still working on getting the best angles for the best shots.

I am using a CHEAP keychain camera so excuse the bad quality.

I got some good air to air shots and stuff like that.

More to come too !

Here is my first attempt at a flying C-130....

Its .... ok ... doesn't look as nice as I wanted.

I just got a 3 View of a C-130 and went at it and I came up with this.

Not sure what a power system I am going to use:

1: Two Blue wonder motors ?

2: Four small inrunner motors spinning 3 by 2 props ?

Probably just to make it simple I will just use two motors.

I probably need to increase the cord of the wing and the horizontal stabilizer.

First try will only be a Rudder, Throttle, and Elevator.

There is not enough area on the wings for ailerons at this time.

I need help with designing a 3D fuselage so if you have any ideas .... hit me up with a PM.


Its not to bad .... going to try again soon , after I build and fly my also newly designed F-35 ... plans for it are in the scratchbuilding section of the forum.

Also some pictures of my fleet

Well, I put the parts on , everything is on the center line and the elevons work great. Balance and CG are correct.

Motor gives off great power and should be plenty.

I added some painters tape to the front to give it some weight and some color.

Only problem I might see is wing flex , but I want to try this one with the balance correct and see how it flys.

Will try to maiden it in the next couple days.

The shelf was to make my hobby room cleaner and to have a place to put my planes.

I have a flying wing waiting to be built.

Wish me luck.

Well , I love to design my own planes.

I guess I will document my newest project.

I Will use a Welguard Micro Park-jet motor with a 3s lipo , should give me plenty of power.

Next post will be more pictures and maiden flight.

Not sure what to call it , but when I first designed it I called it the Stealth so I guess thats what I will call if for now.

This is the 3rd version:

The first version was tail heavy , and the second version flew but it rolled to one side the whole time and crashed.

Third time is the charm I guess , if that applys to Rc planes

I really want to design a nice plane so I hope this one makes the cut.

I have some basic plans for it already , but they aren't great , I made them to the best of my ability so you have to use half of the parts twice to get the 3D canopy and underbelly.

Hope it works ! (P.S If you look at the pictures closely you might have noticed I am 15 , just to save future questions)
