Life sure puts obstacles in the way of this hobby. It's sad when i maidened a few large planes for people (because of their confidence in my ability) and did not even own one

Anyway i'm flying it like i stole it, and I got it to fit in a little Caliber

My new lady friend was asking if i wanted children or believed in God.

I felt compelled to ask her important questions as well, such as do you have a 'high speed' internet connection? Can you fit an 87" model airplane fuselage in your primary vehicle?

I did this a long time ago and it's buried in a thread. Anyway is what it is.

This can fit on several of the extra's in reaflight. Additionally, the spinner is now correct, and the cockpit has some illumination.

The mods were a success so far! It still floats and sounds much more like a jet

Power system:
4s 2200 25c
Don's wicked edf
airboss 45amp esc
stock xf fan
45mm thrust tube



The next step is dropping in the alpha fan probably. I can't wait for some wind to do some downwind runs


-----------------UPDATE
Don's wicked extreme
Alpha 3 blade fan
loong max 4s 2200 25c

@110- 115 mph Not the setup in this video

Warning no cool music :
Phase 3 F-16 Testing and trimming a new power system (5 min 5 sec)

Somehow I racked up a thousand miles this crappy winter in Ohio. Don't forget to keep your chin covered because it will go numb and carry a spare headlight bulb.

I spent a long disappointing time finding a good pair of overpants that fit and did not look like I was the circus Ringmaster. Wound up with fieldsheer and Joe Rocket.

Additionally, Oxtar makes the best boots on the planet and well the shift jacket is ok if it is not over 75 degrees. When it heats up I bust out my cool motoGP textile and castle gloves.

Keep your knees in the breeze and look out for the salt

The snow is wreaking havok around here. I at least have been flying my Great planes seawind during the winter plus some mind numbing time on RealFlight G3.5. I am also debating whether to join an AMA club closer than the one I have been a member of for several years....Continue Reading
