After a nice XMAS picnic with the gang at work, I could not resist and went to fly at the my work sponsored RC Club field (KARS) which is adjacent to the picnic area and since I had my models in the Car already...

First went up was my Park Zone T-28 “Navy” that has flown and been in my hangar for over 3 years now. It has been though a lot but, still in pretty good shape and the last time I flew it was this past August 2011. The reason for it be grounded was because of a sudden noise coming from the STOCK and original motor and landed the model dead stick without any damage or incident.

Earlier yesterday morning I was able to remove the motor and observed that the rear securing ring at the end bell had seemed to slip off causing the motor to separate some and this might be the cause of the noise so, therefore, nothing really is wrong with the Stock original motor.

My cousin did something with the rare RC Boat that I gave him about one month ago.

Known as the Ninja by OK Models. He however did not use the Brushed motor because he does not have a Brushed ESC so, he used an Airplane Brushless motor instead.

I gave it to him because I knew he would enjoy it more than if I would sell it over in the internet such places like eBay. As a matter of fact, I found the identical boat over at eBay that sold for almost $40.00 plus shipping!
