LOL.........oh yeah.....if I sneezed she'd be headed for Mars.....lol. Helping folks is a good thing my friend.
I agree......get'em mechanically right. I was amazed how close this thing was...even so, still had to track blades, secure a few wires, etc. Now it's just dialing it in for my dumb thumbs.

Soooo....do your knuckles turn white when you're holding the TX hovering the heli to 3-5 minuets? I know it's been a while, I figure you got a death grip on the TX. We're buying high SW winds again today upward to 30mph. Typically around early dusk, they will drop to almost zero but it's almost to dark to fly at that time. Gotta keep 'em LOW and CLOSE when the lighting is that low. Temps are at 50deg right now but the wind makes it feel about 40deg....not good.

Alrighty....hope you get more heli time and I wanna hear about it....

huuhhh???

just HOW did the pilot get to be so BIG ?

it was hardly a visible thing when I sent it and now it looks HUGE

sure it`s not the same one

inside cockpits the colors are green and gray it should improve the looks of the T-28

Rick....that pilot IS tiny and it's a BEAR to paint because my eyes aren't that good. I painted the interior gray, and the oxygen bottle green. The dash is flat black with "gauges" (the best I could do anyway on the gauges). The tub has been epoxied in, waiting for it to dry, then fit the canopy, then paint the canopy.

Barry...those deer were 150yds off my back door. Used to be 12-14 of 'em, now there's a lot less. I think the pilot looks STONED myself.

Update: Rick...ready to paint the canopy black and white...tomorrow. To tired to go any further tonight.

You've got that Yak figured out...on to the 450.
Been TRYING to figure out what plane we had at the NAS Glenview Flying Club, and I did figure it out. It was a T-34B, and I would have LOVED to had a chance to go up in it. It sat in Hangar One, below my office.

Super good job

YYEESSSS !!!!!!

:

THAT IS EXACTLY A REFLECTION OF WHAT I INTENDED THE T-28 TO BE

Thank you SO MUCH for doing that. Do you notice how with these small additions it seems the model changed from a little "TOY" to
a definite MODEL AIRPLANE (small) ????

Of course the best part comes now because it is a GREAT FLYER and it does everything you want it to do......just like a little pattern Airplane...
MAKES ME THINK that now the BIG BROTHER may want to go live in
MICHIGAN ......

GOOD JOB GOOD JOB EXCELLENT !!!!!!

Rick...it's a great improvement over what it looked like before. I am glad that I was able to be worthy and meet your expectations in that modification. I have a few issues to rectify like getting some acrylic flat black paint, and I need to do a mechanical zero of the servos. The servos, I dont know how to do it.....YET. Give me time, I'll find the info or figure it out. Since the wind is NOT being friendly to R/C, it does give me time to work on it to get things perfect.
