Here are some pictures of the custom engine stands I designed and made for Doug with http://www.aerogasrc.com. They made an appearance at the AMA Expo this weekend and I think they came out looking pretty good. These are just meant for display purposes but I am entertaining the idea of doing a test stand as well.
I have no idea if there would be any interest in anyone wanting a display stand like these or something similar, let me know if there is any interest.
My new E-flite Carbon-Z Cub is quickly becoming my new favorite plane. I have always loved my Multiplex Fun Cubs, and still love flying them but the Carbon Cub is so much fun. It flies so much like a big fun cub with lots of extra power, super slow flying and large tires for taking off and landing on any surface. Here are a few videos of my Carbon-Z Cub flying, hope you enjoy them.
After the factory 3 blade prop exploded in mid flight the threaded inserts were torn out. I had to cut out the top of the fuse to get to the plastic mount, i then pulled out the plastic factory motor mount and put a piece of plywood on the backside of the plastic mount with blind nuts to bolt the motor on. In the pictures you can see what was done and the stock 3 blade was replaced with a Xoar 18x8 wooden 2 blade prop.
Here are some pics of my most recent Fun Cub done in US Forest Service paint scheme.
