I just wanted to say this winter is going to be really long! Sure I have a few projects I'm working on and some to look forward to, but mostly I miss the feeling of being out at the field and flying....

Our club and Hobby Store have Indoor Golf Dome flys, and I have been flying my UM planes and mainly re-acquainting myself with all my Helicopters again, but I really miss flying a few planes... My Sundowner and MX Extra the most!

I was fooling around today, dreaming and throttling up the Sundowner just for kicks. I decided to snap a few photos of it.

I hope it's a short winter....

Thanks For reading!

With the flying season nearly over in Saskatchewan, Canada, our focus turns to indoor flying at the Golf Dome and school gyms. I decided to finally convert my Park Zone Ultra Micro P-51 Mustang over to the "Cripes A Mighty" paint scheme. As much as I have liked the stock Mustang, the one thing that bothered me most was the Styrofoam canopy. it just screams "MODEL PLANE" loudly to me. I realize these will at most times look like model planes, at best, but this was a nick pick of mine. In the air it actually looked real enough...

I added the Park Flyer Plastics cockpit and canopy set. The graphics came from Callie Graphics. Overall, I'm pretty pleased with the results... It's not perfect, but I think it looks a bit better, and it should be a bit more unique at the indoor flying sessions. I plan to fly it gear less, however the gear and homemade doors were more for the static display.

I have a few more indoor planes to get ready. A Sukhoi XP26, and my Champ. I may also look at purchase of a UM 3D plane as well. I will probably turn my attention back on to my Helicopters as well for the indoor season. We are allowed to fly up to 450 size Helis, and My Walkera V450 has been neglected of late.

As for Big outdoor plane projects, I have a few on the go, and a few in the planning stages... I hope it's short winter season


If it doesn't snow today I may take my ParkZone 40 P-51 out for a flight or 2...
