hi guys,

as we have winter here atm, i bought something to fly and something to build.

building a ME-262 to fly when the weather gets better and now atm i
fly the Parkzone Icon A5

i have to say, this plane is so great, nice and flies so good that i really enjoy every second i have it up in the air! just fun!

i recommend it to anyone who has to pause during the winter time because of snow..

so... after 5 month pause i'm back in business and did 2 flights with my F-16.
the only thing which still need corrections and setup is the elevator (add some elev. with flap mix, reduce some elev. when gear up and so on..)

this were the first higher speed passes with this jet, accelleration seems very good (DPS 76mm 69A) and vertical climb is superb

i might re-look into the EDF and thrust tube to change the "sound"..

the end is in sight!!!

i did most of the more complicated work, so only fixing the retracts, building my own cockpit, glueing on the nose, soldering bullets on the batteries and install all wires into rx & light system.
hopefully in a week or 2 i can do the maiden

wanted to do a flight (some time ago), but realised after take off that it is too much wind, especially crosswind, so i wanted to come back down as quick as possible.

while lining up to the runway i lost my jet in the sun i had luck..
after touch down, the wind blew from the side and it tipped over onto the wing. had luck again, after applying full ailerons i got it back up, otherwise it would have ended again with a flip into the grass and damaged retracts or broken wing.

Video shows my shortest take off ever, full flaperons used because of no wind at all.. mixed outside view with onboard camera, enjoy!

hey guys,

i wanted to make a special flight video this time, so i thought i could go to the lake (it lost 6m water so we were able to walk inside from one side)

this was the first time i flew above water, its abit irretating but i enjoyed the flight.

HD available

well guys,

this f16 flew good from start but the last flight ended badly in the grass, crashed and broke the main wing and one elevator, so i had to cut the main wing complete..

after the repair the jet flys better then before, only had to give 2 clicks right aileron to trim it out.

here is the result

hi guys,

i flew this CopteReX 500 with the original CX paddles and found, that it rolls and flips lazy and slow.
i already was at 8 cyclic pitch, so i took the align carbon paddles and voila.. now much better

enjoy watching!

hello people,
i started this build in august 2010 and had nothing but problems

build went together without big problems but then it began.
the copterx 500 parts were so poor and cheap, nothing worked like it should.
i have recorded all my flights and flight attempts, so you can follow what happened

first spin up after finished the build and nearly accident:

after fixing the first problem i went outside for the first hover around tests, again, almost accident:
