I attended Warbirds over Las Vegas last weekend and it was awesome!!! A friend of mine (The Dave) called me the night before and said I should bring out the Cessna 310 as a military executive transport and he had some stars and bars to enhance it. Well, I had some black vinyl to cut out the USAF so, there you go. We were installing the decals in our pits and it couldn't have flown any better. The Hangar 9 Corsair was a blast as well. Especially chasing the Zero around!!!

I was blessed to be able to ride on this immaculate aircraft on Friday. Full glass cockpit installed. We departed McCarran airport, flew through many canyons and, did 3 landings on Lake Mead. Thanks to Dave for the awesome ride!!!

Might need to buy this kit now. http://www.parkscalemodels.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=80

I love the flight profiles of a twin aircraft. I found this TF 310 kit on a RC classified site for a steal. Really, when I was loading it up in my truck, I felt like I had a gun and mask with me. Never the less, I knew it had to be converted to electric power. I removed all most 2 lbs of steel shot from the nose and fabricated battery boxes to install as far fwd in the nose as I could. Its powered with 2 Eflite Power 60's, 2 Castle ICE 100 ESC's and, 2 6s 5000 mAh Zippy batteries. After the maiden and 2 more flights today, this 310 flys awesome. Rock solid with no bad characteristics. TF nailed it with this one!!!

Well, I haven't built a plane in a while due to the quality ARF's that are available. I wanted to get back to my roots on actually building something, not just assembling a model. I've been a machine during this whole build. My wife is very supportive and just gave me a confused glare when I placed the fuse and wing on the warm stove just so the filler would dry faster. I married a saint! I covered the Ultimate completely in white Ultracote and used red and blue vinyl over the Ultracote for the scheme. Since this one will be powered with a Hacker, I don't need to worry about fuel proofing and this new trick I tried works extremely well. Getting closer and more reports later....

Just need to install all the radio and balance it (with the gear). The maiden will be this weekend.
