Had a great time at Comic-Con and the crowd really loved the show. People stand in line for 24 hours to get into the important Panels and they ringed the water front on Friday. R2-D2 provided the entertainment. Crowds varied from around 2k for the TARDIS and Snoopy to 5-6k for R2.

Had a blast the other night flying my Witch over the San Diego skyline and over/around the full moon. A great time.

For those trying to find info on Flyguy, I have a master thread here in rcgroups. This is the link:


Here is the old master thread. Has good and dated info.


The first post gives you all the info needed to find discussion and build logs for the various forms of Flyguy.

Two are build logs for the Version 2 of Flyguy62 and Flyguy46. They are more rugged versions of Flyguy and the Depron and ply cutouts are available from balsabuddies.com if you don't want to cut the parts yourself.

Another entry point into all things Flyguy are my web pages at:

flyguypromotions.com and flyingguys.com

Here is some information on my latest Flyguy, Version 3.
Flyguy62 Version 3 is a fully aerobatic version of Flyguy and new as of February of 2014. Version 3 is designed for the intermediate to advanced flyer where Version 2 is designed for anybody that can fly a trainer. Version 3 has twin motors for yaw control and is capable of inside and outside loops. Rolls are very axial and yaw control allows slow and point rolls. Here is a link to the Build Log:

I just completed some experiments into flying boxes and cylinders. I dressed the prototype box up as Doctor Who's Tardis and the cylinder as a Red Bull can. Enjoy.

Finally, I've been developing a Quadplane. Working out the control system has been a challenge.
