It didnt go so good. A MP transmitting on his radio from his truck basically "locked out" my transmitter signal. Then he sped away with the lights and siren on. Grrrr.... We'll fix the landing gear and it will fly... soon... I promise!!!

Today I went to town and rented a midget who looks just like me to take a picture with one of my wings...

...Yeah right

But really, here it is, in all its "almost finished" glory. You guys wanted a picture where you could see the whole thing, so, you got it.

We got all the electronics wired up, drilled out the props to fit the motors and ran the Atlas motors up on the 10S Max amps packs. We used the APC 18x12 props for the static run up, but for flying it will use counter rotating APC 20x13s. Anyway, it is awesome!!! 5600 watts of power on this thing!

SRT-10 13FT WING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (3 min 12 sec)

Yippeee! The top is done now! I like it. The wife thinks the pin stripes set it off pretty good.

I finally got it to the point that I can start covering it. Acre upon acre or wing area takes some "finesse" to get the covering layed down just right.

Lookin good though, until I ran out of white. So, its on order and will be here in a few days.

More progress on the SRT-10 today. The alum. plates on the trailing edge where the motors mount are now secured with Elmers Ultimate. Lots of cutting and sanding to get them just right.

also, I finished up all the soldering on the 25+ feet of servo wire on this pig.

Another interresting plane from Ohio Combat. This is a prototype delta that I built to test. Spans about 36". For gear it has 2 HS-81s, a HET 3 turn with a 4.75x4 prop, TP 3S 2070, Castle 35 and a Hitec 4Ch. RX.

Well, here is my latest project. With help from Ohio Combat, Max Amps, Hobby Lobby and Castle Creations it WILL fly!!!

13 feet of monster flying wing. There is roughly 46 square feet of wing area on this thing.

With twin motors, 10S 2P 5000mah lipos and over 5000 watts of power, it might just scoot right along too.

This is my little buddy Kameron and my new 52" Ohio Combat Battle Axe. I have to add some detail to the covering, but the build is done and it flys great.
