last weekend was a trip to texas that I have been waiting for nearly 3 months,along with visiting some family I was able to pick up some toys that I had bought from a member here on rcg, everything was amazing and I cant wait to put them in the air. thanks Lt. RON.
Picked up another great deal from a member of rcg that just happened to live close by,thanks for the great deal.
hello rcgers,I picked up this diamond in the ruff today and would like to fix it up a bit but I cant seem to find any info on the web,the guy I bought if from said it was an aero star biplane but I cant find any info,please help.it has a thunder tiger .61 engine if that helps with size. thanks for any help i can get,I really just want to find an engine cover for it.
well the wait was finally over today,I was impressed with the quality of this 63" predator drone.I'm looking for a nice good quality small camera for some arial vids,if you can recommend one at a fair price or have one please let me know. thanks
heres my finished pantera 50.everything looks great,Im a little worried about the dark colors of the canopy but I think it will be ok.
well I'm at it again,I managed to pick up some really good deals on craigs.the first picture is a precision aerobatics mini katana with an eflite park 450.the second is an eflite sukhoi 26m with an eflite park 480 and the third is an eflite pitts 15e with an eflite power 25. all super nice planes and as soon as the weather clears up I get to try them all out....
had to put my babies together one more time for a family photo,yes I love my helicopters.
hey folks,when I bought this pantera it was neon pink so naturally I did what any civilized helicopter pilot would have done,,,, I painted it with house of colors ,it has some pretty heavy metal flake,now I need your opinion on what I should do next,for obvious reasons I cant just leave it solid black,I need some brighter colors but I'm all out of ideas,the carbon blades are white ,I need your input to help me decide if I should put stripes or flames or just leave it alone,PLEASE give it a good look over and help me with a cool paint scheme.. ... thanks
finally got around to building this cool little styrofoam airplane,the fokke wulf 190.now its time to fly.how do you like my custom rusty looking paint scheme.
well I was able to fly my tiger moth again today with no damage,I did however encounter some strange flying characteristics,aside from being very windy the plane had a strange bobbing manner,not sure if it was the wind or my cg,maybe the servos are a little slow to react,I sure could use some more experienced opinions from my fellow flyers. thanks for any help

ok groups,today I'm throwing all caution to the wind ,ok no i'm not,actually I'm taking every possible precaution there is to fly for the first time my 1/5 scale tiger moth,I converted it to electric,added a scorpion 4025-16 brushless motor running a 13-6 prop with a hacker jeti master 77 opto esc running on 8s two 4s 3700 in series. I'm hoping for a good flight,all control surfaces have been trimmed.when and I mean when all goes well I'll post the video on youtube and post again in my blog.I want to thank everyone for helping me with some of the details with my power managment.
heres the maiden flight of my raptor 50 electric conversion that I picked up from a member here,it flies great on 10s.

the maiden flight of my raptor 30 v2 electric conversion,had some problems with the retract but recently solved the issue.
|airwolf (3 min 13 sec)|
heres the latest addition to my family of radio control airplanes,the first is a hangar 9 1/5 scale cub with an evolution 46 motor.the second is a rare great planes 1/5 scale tiger moth,needs brushless motor and esc.flight videos coming soon.
I havent taken a group picture in a while,here they are from left to right.trex 700n e conv.,raptor 50 e conv.,trex 600e,raptor 30 e conv. with airwolf fuse.yes thats a 700e canopy on the trex 600e,would trade for a nice 600e if anyone has one.
heres my homeade flybarless hk450,I actually made this flybarless head in about 30 minutes then after some making some adjustments in expo and d/r in the dx7 I hovered it and was amazed by how smooth it was,not twitchy at all,tomorrow I will fly it and see how well it does,remember this has no stabilization system on it. just a gyro.
heres my third attempt to fly the jetiger by artech,the first attempt didnt go to good,the second was a little better and third finally made flight,nice handling and good speed.

does anyone know what size electric motor would be powerful enough for a 70" wingspan hellcat.
well,I somehow acquired a raptor 30 with a hacker c50 12xl brushless motor and matched esc along with a nice fuselage.Now the question is how am I gonna stuff the giant 8s battery pack in this thing or maybe two 4s,one on each side,if anyone has had these kind of issues please give me some advice on this build,its a real tight squeeze in there. thanks for any help
