Just finished my P-Stick-F (AKA Red Baron). Still needs a test flight and lights and it will be ready for SEFF. Next on the board is a C-47 (AKA Puff).

At this point I wasn't planning on using any of the landing gear, just hand launch and belly land on Mac's grass. If we must use the gear, speak now or forever hold your peace.

Here's a couple of places.

Hobby King USA:

Hobby Partz:

I'm not sure if any of them carry Ninja LEDs. I guess they'd be black or maybe Bar-B-Q colored. Maybe only visible to Ninja Eyes.

Yes, it won't stay flying but in many cases it couldn't be considered a landing!

Even then I think it's called a "One Point" landing. It's just that sometimes that one point can be scattered over several acres. Foamies and windy day one point "landings" can get really messy.

The Formosa is almost done. I might get a maiden done in the next day or so. After that, I will start working on the lights.
