Hi guys,
Well it has been awhile since I have posted on here. Let me fill you in on the new goings on.

My Extra finially had its first flight with me and wow what a flight it was, I almost lost it a few times trying to trim it out but managed to get it under control. What a nice flying airplane. I have finished breaking in my Magnum 91 for it and I am going to increase the prop size for it, I am going form a 14-6 which is recomended for break in to a 14-8. Still I am having a wagging tail issue, so I am going to have to look at the pull pull setup and try to figure it out.

On Fathers day weekend our club the BCRC flyers had a Funfly and a Airshow. We had about 10 planes preforming in the show and what a show. We had a boomerang jet, and it was clocked at doing 290 kmh. What a treat as I have never seen a jet before. We also had a 33% yak 54 doing aerobatics, a 1/2 scale Spacewalker, a GeeBee. One of the members of a neighboring club brought his Pitts airplane that he built in 1974. Still flying and flying well.

Well back to flying, hope you all have a safe flying season.

Well I have been flying my Tiger 60 around lots, trying out some basic aerobatic menuvers. As i was looking at RCCanada I found an Extra 300s from Great Planes. This is a 60 size plane. I was into flying warbirds but I think I am going to try doing some aerobatics now. I am now in the process of figuering what servos to use and what engine to use. I think I am going to use a older OS 1.20fs. The servos on the other hand I am not sure of. I am thinking of using some hitech mini high torque for the elevators and ailerons as that what the person before me had but what I am going to use for the rudder?

I will keep you posted.

Have got more work done on the Tiger 60. The fin and stab are mounted on the plane, the pilot is installed and the canopy is on. I have the throttle cable figured out and just have to add the rest of my covering on the wings and servos in the plane and it will be ready for its maiden on Sat. I will post some pics of the finished wing when I am done covering it Tomorrow.

Out flying today and managed to get 5 flights in today in my P51. My P51 is a hanger 9 PTS trainer mark 1. I have nothing left of the PTS stuff on it no more as I took the last of it off today being the Droops. I have not tried the flaps out on a landing but have tried the flaps out in a flight, that plane sure slows down. the one thing I noticed is when you take the Droops off it sure makes the plane climb better. I could really slow down the plane for a flight with the Droops off.

Glad to get some good flights in

Happy Easter

About a week away from putting my Tiger 60 in the Air for its maiden flight, I have being working on this plane since Dec and now with all the parts in and installed I am at the covering point. I installed a lighting system that looks really good and I made it a tail dragger.

After I have my Tiger 60 done I am going back to building my Corsair.

Hi everyone,

Well this is my first Blog and post on RC Groups. Lots of good information on the site.

I have been flying for about 1.5 years but have been building about three years. I have a TF Corsair that I have been working on that is almost fiberglassed. I have alot of work to do to my Corsair before it is flight ready. I am also building a Tiger 60 and going to be starting a Protege this summer.
My first flight of the year did not go well this year, as my wing came off my Eagle 2 but on the bright side nothing besides the fuselage was destroyed. The other good thing was I finaly flew my PTS Mustang that I have had for two years.

Well that is it for now I will be putting some pics of my planes in the weeks to come.
