I get a trainer airplane to learn on > the wind carries plane into a tree

I buy a DLG to have fun with > its wing cracks in half

I get a micro heli to do some 3D with > I don't have the money to pay for more parts

I buy some foam to get in scratchbuilding > I can barely afford the electronics/parts to make it fly


LOL... *Sigh*

Hey Everybody,

Here's my latest idea in the making called the RC Foam Show (RCFS for short).

The RC Foam Show (RCFS) (0 min 26 sec)

Music from: http://beatsroyaltyfree.com/

Scratchbuilding + RCFS inspired by Flite Test!

The RC Foam Show (RCFS) will include scratchbuilding, plane technology, and R/C stuff. I had the idea last night that I could do something like this over the summer for fun. RCFS is just an idea for now; don't expect anything too soon! I'd like to get into scratchbuilding and thought that I'd introduce my idea here before I decided and ordered some stuff. All the plane kits that I've bought never really lasted a long time for me. They either ended up in trees, broke when trying to get them down, or are still stuck up there. I didn't have the parts or experience to keep them all working at that time. With scratchbuilding if a plane breaks, I could easily build a new one. I'd like to start by building some gliders and small DLGs first and then moving on to electric motor and ESC powered flying wings, trainers, and jets. At the moment I only have one ESC, motor, and propeller combination that came from the SkyFun jet shown in the video. I could use that combo in scratchbuilding.

Thanks for watching and comment with your ideas. Please no negative comments because it's just an idea for now.

Hey everybody,

My new R/C site is just about finished now, I have to add a few more details and various items in the webpages themselves but for now I'd say that it's completed. I changed the background so that it wasn't so distracting and all over the place, too, so it's easier to read and skim through. The more R/C models that I get, build, and test, the larger the site will become!

Please check it out because I've worked hard on it!

Hey everybody,

My new R/C website has been going through a lot of remodeling lately, plus I've been writing a lot for the webpages that it has of my R/C builds and such. Please check it out; it's there for people to get the information that they need for the R/C products that I have had experience with. I even put up a full FAQ.


Thanks for checking it out!

This is my new R/C site, here's what will be featured (SO FAR!) on it:

-Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo VXL (my FAQ will be featured too!)

-Heli-Max AXE CPv3 RTF

-SkyFun Pusher Jet PNP

-Tuff Trainer PNP

-Binary 900 DLG Kit

-Bonsai Flying Wing Kit

-Blade Scout CX RTF

-Turnigy 1/16 4WD Brushless Buggies

I've worked hard to get this site easy to use and read from as well as having good, solid information and build information.

Please, please check it out for me and share it with other people! It's still under construction but will be updated sooner than later!

Thank you!

Getting a lot better at hovering inverted! I will be upgrading a few parts soon on the mCPX too, my "custom" tail (see my other blog post) made from two broken tails has now broken, so I'll upgrade to a longer one, too!

Hey everybody,

I fixed the cracked tail boom by attaching an old one with a bad motor to this one, extending the length of the boom, too! I just wrapped the motor's wires outside of the boom and plugged it into the plug on the main board - it flies fine!

I used hot glue, a zip tie, and a small piece of electrical tape to complete this. If you break your tail boom and have an old one sitting around, don't hesitate to do this because it works and even makes the heli fly better!

ENJOY! (and subscribe!) I'm much more comfortable and confident at the sticks flying this heli now, and I can't wait to go to a bigger space where I can throw this into high rates and really rip it up!
