Well, bad news for me. Had a wing fail in flight on the OS 50 powered Lark X. Needless to say, the flight ended rather soon after the wing decided to part company with the fuse. Heres the carnage. Fixable, just frustrating.
Wanted to make a big plane one day, so I came up with this thingy. Wing span was just short of 7 feet. Nice flyer, just ended up being way too slow for me. I guess I cant do the glider type plane thing, I need the rush of speed and insane roll rates!
Figured I would make a boat one day just to see if I could from FFF. Slapped on a mean 3 turn brushless with a 5x5 prop. Check out the video and you be the judge. Plus you get to hear my 4 year old talkin to mom about "Catapults". Quite cute.
Decided I needed another Formosa, for some reason the wife didnt agree . So, I bought this slope glider and built and covered it. Power is from a Himax 2816 outrunner and a Phoenix 25. Even put retracts on this one. Now the wife likes it.
I kinda have a thing lately for the yellow/checkers theme... getting a little Taxi lookin though. Time to switch it up some on the next plane.
GWS A-10 with minor modifcations, just for durability and weight savings. Maidened it today and burned up one motor, the other is squealing so its not far behind. Guess a 3S lipo wasnt the greatest idea.
Flew great, slightly underpowered. I'll slap a couple brushless motors in there at a later date.
My 2nd plane ever after a GP Slinger that I learned on,it is, obviously, my Formosa that was donated to me and the guys when I was deployed. They said it needed to be desert camo, so, its desert camo! Flew fine on a stock motor with a little old gws 7cell AAA battery (thats all I had!)
