I'm sure it is a dreamboat to fly compared to most of my planes and I eagerly await it's slow steady flight And with flaps and crow

DJ, I understand it is your "dream" to be able to fly there... Who wouldn't like that?

Maybe you can try flying a smaller airplane first? I'd suggest something like a Nutball.. easy, slow flying thing... pretty easy to make (or order the kit from Flitetest for $33+shipping)

Hi as I recommended the motor I'll do my best to explain.
I don't have a camera with a flash so I cant provide photo's as it's dark!

Basically you take the black plastic motor mount and reverse it. Notch a hole in the ege of the mount large enough to get the wires through. Then it will just fit back into the notches in the fuselage. Though some people extend the notches out to the end (probably as they have had to drag out the mount from the rtf version).

#132

another option #272

Using the stock mount makes swapping motors a little tricky, so I use a 3rd party mount, see post #315

Hope this helps.

Mark

I suppose you could get one of these as it seems it would take all your B2 gear.

Sculptor, just trim that tree on the left a bit and I'm sure you can do it and for sure do what TJ suggested. Nice greyhound statue and new little guy btw. I'm a dog lover myself with 3 faithful friends.

I am fortunate to be able to do this myself. I have run up against somewhat the same problem you have. When the wind comes out of the South or South West I basically land either cross wind or with the wind to my tail. I have trees behind me so a go around is not really possible. I must stick the landing. So far no crashes on landing this way.

I am sure what you are being told is the best advice from skilled individuals. I guess I am just too new and too brave (or as some may say stupid) to do it. The enjoyment for me is being able to get home from the office, throw on a pair of jeans and fly a pack or two before supper.

My advice is to go to your local airfield and try some landings as if are standing in your back yard. If you feel comfortable with the plane and the response needed to get it down, give it a shot for real. If not then you have your answer.

I fall into the group you will never know if you don't try. That is part of the fun.

On another note my wife came to me this evening and said: "by the time I get back to the living room I want confirmation you purchased that plane you have been talking about." As any good husband would do under this circumstance I checked and yes it was in fact my wife. This is what should be shipping out tomorrow: Icon A5 It will be my second plane and will be used with landing gear and on the water. I am pretty excited to give it a go!

Except for the early dawn and late evening it's never this calm. The wind is always blowing usually out of the South and Southwest. I've got a friend of mine down the street who runs RC boats, big time. He can have it. Spends most of his time paddling out in the bay to retrieve it. Not for me.

Thank you,

Now..Have you ever thought about "sculpting" desktop aircraft..Your eye for detail and scale would be something to see.

John thank you for your comment about this. That trade is called "modelmaking" it's not sculpture which is my trade.

It can be so confusing, example: a man carves an Eagle ripping a fish out of the water in wood and paints it and it is perfect. But it is not art and these people know that and why? It's like a fortunate photograph, it records a moment in time but it is not sculpture. These carvings record a moment in time. With no more interpretation than that these are called carvings not sculptures. They are ranked along with nature photography and the people who do this know that. Their work is amazing to me.

Thank you John,

DJ
