I've always wanted an Extreme Flight 88" Edge. However, there are three or four of them in the red, white, and blue scheme at the fields where I fly, so I decided to mix things up a bit. I will say that the red, white, and blue lightening scheme is my favorite EF scheme which made it VERY hard to remove the covering

I played with the MS Paint program on my laptop, and came up with a rough sketch of what I'm thinking about. I know for certain there aren't any black and copper schemes around

The Extreme Flight 91" Yak is hands down my favorite airframe. The wide flight envelope offers ballistic 3D performance while somehow also managing extremely straight line precision maneuvers?

I've decided to shake things up a bit and copy a scheme from the famous Reno air racer "Perestroika". I know the scale guys are going to have a hard time with this because the original Perestroika was a Yak 11, but I like the scheme, and this is a hobby after all.

I've also decided on an electric power plant, and will hopefully be able to use the new Xpwr 50cc equivalent motor from EF when it is released. However, I also want to have her airworthy for Joe Nall so the DualSky G6000.8 is my backup plan.

I will include pics and updates in the coming weeks, and solicit the help of several friends since I have very little covering experience. The chrome Monokote should be fun

Some before and after shots of my new 35% pilot figure. Shane at Air2Art Studio in Greenbriar, TN does great work.

Added some "bling' to my 35% Pilot Extra 330SC

Prop is a Falcon 29x9. The spinner came green, I just had the painter add checkers for me.

Found a way to cram twin tuned pipes on a DA70 into my 91" Extreme Flight Yak.

Took a bit of fabrication, but I got 'em in! The pipe tunnel is 3 3/4" and each pipe is 2", so I had to open up one side which included removing a couple of formers.

Now if the weather would break!

No one builds 'em better than Extreme Flight. No one. This thing even makes me look like a good pilot!

The DA70 twin also helps

Here is a video of my maiden flight with the new electric plane smoke system from MrRC Sound.

I'm a new pilot, so my acrobatics are not very clean, but the smoke system is awesome.

I highly reocmmend it to anyone who is looking to add smoke to their large scale electric plane!

Anyone recognize this plane. Purchaed it used from my LHS, no manuals.

Looking to see if anyone knows who the manufacturer may be? Trying to capture CG and battery recommendations.

Maiden flight of my new Starmax 1600mm P47 ended with a bang. When battery packs go bad, foam can't stand the heat!!

It was mentally, and financially traumatic, but I have to admit, it was quite a sight to behold.

Tested out the new E-Flight bomb drop mechanism today on my Parkzone P47. Set the radio to release from my flaps channel since this plane doesn't have flaps.

Decided to make a cheap drop mechanism for my son's Hobby Zone Super Cub. Bought a $7, 8gram servo and stuck it in the tail of the plane. Then hooked a rubber band around the servo arm and two screws near the landing gear. We've dropped everything from Nerf bullets, to egg sized water balloons, and in the second attached video, Darth Vader from an Estes rocket parachute.

Wrecked my Snortin' Bull Parkzone P47 (pics attached). Broke fuselage in half, and tree branches put a few holes in the wings. Ordered new wings, and used epoxy to put the fuselage back together. Hoped up the motor to a Hacker A30-10XL v3. Replaced the stock ESC with a new 65 amp ESC. Razorback conversion kit from Park Flyer Plastics. Rattle can Krylon paint from Ace Hardware, and graphics from Callie of course. Added flaps and retracts. Will maiden as soon as it stops raining in Nashville!...Continue Reading

So I'm brand new to the RC world, but have fallen in love with the P-47 Thunderbolt. After wrecking mine beyond recognition, I started looking for advice here on RC Groups and found so many others modifying their P-47's I decided to jump on the band wagon. After getting my jug back in flying condition, I bought a second Park Zone P-47 air frame in order to convert it to an olive drab razorback. Here are a few pics of my progress from is weekend.
