Lone Eagle R/C rehabilitation clinic

Dear Gooseman,
I think you and I should look into checking into the Lone Eagle R/C rehabilitation clinic if we ever get over ...oh say 75 planes...yeah...76 for one person...that's one to many. By the way, it's cheaper and easier to get a good trailer then to add on to your house. When you fill that you can get a used cargo trailer for about $1,000 and that will hold a lot of planes. Can't waste that money expanding our house when we can build our air forces. Mike (I won two kits this weekend) Heer

Hey guys, excellent site and really lively forums.

The electric section of my hanger currently holds:

Built:
2 x multiplex twin stars, one of which has two kontronic brushless motors fitted.
Galaxy models aerojet. Fast 600 powered jet like model
Multiplex StuntMan.
Ikarus Bleriot
Kyosho Soarus Sports
Precedent Hi-Fly (converted to electric)
Frankenstein (geared 400 fun fly built from a plan, excellent for aerobatics)

Still boxed:
1 60inch, 4x400 motored Lancaster
SAS Thingohmy
Wattage Extra 330L (latest purchase)

Most get a fairly regular airing and the (small) collection is fairly broad in terms of the type of model from indoor/park flyers to fast stuff (the aerojet really moves), to gliders and aerobatic stuff.

Also have a fair few glow powered models too but I don't really fly 'em much at the moment and a few slope soarers which get let out occasionally.

Here's mine (only be going since Sep) :

Multiplex TwinStar - my first and I still enjoy flying it. It's now a trainer (for friends or my son) and sometimes a cameraplane.

Zagi with brushless - unfortunately smashed beyond reasonable repair but easily the best plane I've had so far. Will build another.

Multiplex Microjet - transplanted the motor from Zagi but this never really flew properly (too heavy) and is now binned.

Wattage Crazy8 - really satisfying plane, capable of more than my abilities. My first ever ROG takeoffs and landings !

Duskstik - I built this for my son to learn on but not impressed, I don't think it's really suited to a windy place like the UK. Also too fragile for a trainer IMO.

Next build will be a 'zagi style' sloper, not decided on kit yet.

Twister flown a lot
Mayfly flown rarely (first successful e-plane)

Mercury flown occasionally (getting very tired- 8/28/03)
Comet Clipper II (given away)
Chrysalis HLG conversion (given away)
Wren (coming out of retirement due to 3 cell Etech 8/28/03)
Super Snooper (under development-now flown successfully-given to godsons.
Buzzard Bombshell (under development during previous post- great conversion (RIP)
Super Pacer (RIP)
Sterling Citabria (RIP)
Sterling Jenny (Pulled motor- hung it up)
Flyline Curtiss Robin (OK conversion- awaiting repair.)
Fierce Arrow flown occasionally (contemplating li-poly)
Corbin (glow conversion) flown occasionally
Rimfire (glow conversion) flown occasionally definitely needs li-poly for duration.)
Old Version FS F-16 (stomped on)
Apache (semi retired)
ML3D(extremely tired- probably retired.)
Cannonshot flown frequently (li-poly helped)
Super Sniffer flown occasionally
Li'l Gypsy flown occasionally

New aircraft flown since last post- none (must be losing it.) although several now have li-polys- what a diff! The Minx 400 is still on the bench, now joined by a Meridian and a Dare Spirit of St. Louis.

* PT-17 Sterman (Kyosho, still not finnished...)
* SE5a (Peter Rake design (just about to maiden)
* Microjet
* Pico Stick
* Aeronca Champion (soon to be a float plane)
* ENRA (own design 3D plane, neads some rebuild, not crashed, but not good enough flyer)
* about 5 or 6 Depron planes wich never was named...
* an 18" "Parkflyer Pete"
* Kyosho Convert XC (10 y/o mini helicopter)

and some other planes I have laying arround at home...

I just moved so I threw about 15 planes away too, they were just laying collecting dust on my shelves, so I figured they could do that in the trash instead :/
