Do you believe in the resurrection?

I don't hit this forum often, but I thought this project would stimulate some interesting discussion. Please take a look at my pics and if you have design ideas Id be interested in some feedback.

Happy Easter. At first I thought my Telemaster was dead but its alive...resurrected from the dead!

Captions in the slideshow explain my stupid pilot tricks.

Video of crash

It sucks to have to fess up to pilot error. It sucks worse when its captured on video..We were doing air to air practice when my tx went dead so if you watch you can see me spiral in at the end of this sick and wrong video and do....The walk of shame.

Can't burn that video....just think...the plane spiraled out of the scene at the end. If it's being resurrected we will have to do some more air to air on the maiden flight. We can then re-edit to show it rising/resurrecting with a new heavenly body....it could be a religious experience.

Better go make sure I didn't dump the original files.

Years ago I bought a Senior Telemaster wing, tail and nose from an elderly gentleman who had wrecked the rear fuselage. I paid 10 for the lot. (About $15.) I bought four lengths of 5/16th deal from a hardware store and rebuilt the rear fuselage, covered the lot in old parchute nylon, fitted a Merco 61 in the nose and flew it. Now I import them from America!

Old Telemasters never die, they just need TLC!

servo lead

So two of my local pals called and encouraged aft mounted servos. One fellow has even longer servo leads on a Specktrum radio and doesnt have any signal issues. So aft mounted servos it is. A central elevator servo with a v could run both elevator panels without mods..



Shrewsbury.. that rolls off the tongue so..My ancestors came from Oxford. Small world. Cheers Red Monza!
