Sweet looking F4 Shunyata I forgot we were talking about the same base color. Mine matches the blue in the stock decals. The Red grew from the tail. I like what you did with the white strips.... very NICE but, no match for the SEXY K car

On a string in your shop? Cool Thanks Chris
The world has given us photoshop. You are looking at 2 modified pics together...... you can't believe anything you see anymore. Case in point look at Shunyata's K car with the red tail.......
Posting pics is easy and fun... when you are making a post like I am now, Scroll down the page a wee bit to 'Additional Options' and click 'manage attachments' then select browse and select the pic you want to upload, then choose 'upload' ANd WAIT (this is key) until you see evidence of you completed upload = either the highlighted link or the small pic.... Others can explain it better but that will get you messing around with it. Later, Scootr
I have not figgured out how to post photos yet sorry

When I got into RC flying a few years ago, my first plane that actually looked like a plane (1st was a Parkzone Vapor which I still have and fly often) was the Micro Citabria. Still love it and fly it, too. Anyway, one day "Catzilla" decided to very gently and neatly sink one tooth into the front right outside corner of the wing 1/2 in. from the edge. Her tooth went clean through!

I filled the hole, and all was well. But you can still see where the hole was repaired. It's become an rather affectionate memento now. But I wasn't impressed the day she took a bite out of my Citabria! I still remind her about it from time to time.

While she may rub against my Wildcat occaisionally, it's a bit big for her to bother, so it stands against the bookshelf faithfully waiting for me to take it out to the park.

Oh the joys of having pets and RC aircraft in the same house!

Here's how
Click "Go Advanced" then "Manage Attachments" and then browse to where you have stored your photo. Click "Upload" Once all completed you can close that window. You can also add text to each picture and save the change.
For some of my attachments, I use Gadwin Printscreen as this lets you choose the size of the capture area and even lets you capture web images. Just save to a directory called "Screen prints" and go to the file when you want to upload here. Easy to use and it's free! http://www.gadwin.com/printscreen/
Here's an example

Hope this makes sense.

Which prop are you referring to? I love the two blade dive sound also but would like to try what you did also. How's that prop holding up after your landings.

Does anyone know if the Wildcat can handle a 10x8 (PKZ1005) prop without upgrading the ESC?

Thanks.

With the stock motor and esc? I doubt it, Parkzone has the plane pretty near the limit of the esc just with the stock prop. Many people upgrade the esc just to use the T-28's 9.5x7.5 prop. Also it doesn't look like it'd fit.

Most people get a better esc the same time they get their cat, at least i did anyway. Without a higher rated esc, you can't do much with it prop wise.It has been my experience that bnf s of any type supply the bare minimum esc/batt/ motor.

Yeah I catch on after a while Nice job!
I still have 35mm film on the shelf, gee that was so much cheaper than 4X5" or 2 1/4".
I am before ubiquitous ball point pens.
By the end of summer I'll get pix out! Chris

3rd time the charm?
Yikes! Me wife came to the rescue. My file size was too big. Bumped me off group.
But some how there it is. Not were intended and sans prop. 11X5.5 w/pwr 10 to be tried.
Note the tape on leading edge, it helps save the wing. But just a short distance out, it does not help the visual impact. Thanks Chris
