Well at the Dan Stephens fly in a friend let me fly his Crack Yak so now the 3D bug has got me so far I picked up a foamy from Chris and traded a plane I had for a PA Katana MD and still trying to talk my dad out of a PA 260 he has.
I have been working on my new Maxford USA Globe Swift so it will be ready for HHAEFI. I like scale planes and this was one I had to have as soon as I saw it. After I got the plane I noticed that it had a similar scheme to the Swift Magic Aerobatic Team minus a few lines. I did some research and got in touch with Michael Kennedy the founder of SMAT and asked could I copies of the decal work on his plane for mine including his N number. He told me to copy anything I wanted to so I sent the plane to a decal shop. Had to add decals to the top of the cowl to match the real plane also had to have the stickers on my canopy removed and put back the right way. The other things I added were the top hat right behind the canopy the N number and the number on the tail. I am going to power my plane with the motor and esc that Maxford recomended and I have HS-65 HB servos all around. Should finish the plane this weekend and will post pictures next week.
Got my Cessna 150 done in time for Dan Stevens Flyin and all I can saw is awesome the plane flew great thanks go to Chris Scoggins(Shoes) for test flying the plane for me and trimming it out it flys great our camera is broken but I will be adding pics as soon as I can.
This is what I used in my plane
Thunderbird 9 esc
4 Spektrum S75 servos
AR 6110 rx

Well today is my birthday and I told my dad I wanted to go and do some flying before it started raining.I got two good flights in one with my combat F22 and the other with my spitfire.I decided to take the spitfire up for one more flight which was a bad idea I got disoriented and hit the ground,the plane is trash but atleast I didnt hurt any of the electronics.
