I finally got around to building Leadfeathers EPP Yak 55. What a blast that thing is. No wonder the thread is at the top of the list all of the time. Anyhow, I got 5 sheets of 6mm epp from flyingfoam.com. Turns out they are right down the road in Pflugerville, TX. If you are ever in the area, give Bob @ flyingfoam a call. Just for giggles I printed out a standard size copy of the yak 55 plans and cut it out. I have just about every color sharpie so the sky was the limit on color scheme. After I got it colored and saw how cool it was, I got to thinkin... Would the vapor brick work for this thing. Or maybe a cessna brick. That would be awesome. I am going to work on it.

My newest resto project. I know it is not all that R/C related, I could make it R/C . Though I would need some big a$$, high dollar a$$ high torque servos or actuators more like. None the less, It still rocks. Maybe I will have someone drive while I fly the superfly from the passenger seat. Anyhow, got a hell of a deal on it and so that is this weeks project. Back to R/C next week. I wonder if it would be possible to make the go-kart R/C without breaking the bank? Maybe...

Since everyone is adding their "Hangar or Fleet" to their blog, I figured I would jump on board as well. And yes, If everyone else was jumping off a bridge... I'm in too. Anyhow, here are my current planes as of now, though a new one gets added weekly.

"Captains Log" Stardate, 5-19-09

I have never "blogged" about anything before ever simply cause I never really understood the whole concept. I think I have an idea now, you tell people about nothing and everything. I guess I will start with my newest purchase, the Phase 3 F-16 from hobbypeople. It is my first EDF pucrhase so I was unsure on which bird to buy. I am happy with my decision as the p3 f-16 flies bad a$$. Maiden was perfect. Second flight was great as well. Third flight I brought my girlfriend along to record me flying. All was well untill the powerlines rudely jumped out in front of me and caused the plane and the turf to get to know one another a lil better. Some glue, sand paper, elbow grease and a new paint job and KaBlamo! Better than new. I will be buying another of these to "trick out". Anyone wanting into EDF, Phase 3 all the way!
