RC History - 2008 to present day

RC History

Spring 2008 - purchased HZ Supercub

Summer 2008 - converted to using 1300 and 1500 lipos

Christmas 2008 - purchased Spektrum DX6i with AR6200

Winter 2009 - converted SC to Spektrum with AR6200 and Eagle 30A brushed ESC

Spring 2009 - added ailerons with HXT900s

Spring 2009 - purchased PZ Trojan and second AR6200

Summer 2009 - converted SC to brushless Turnigy 2217-16 with SS 30A ESC

Summer 2009 - added HZ SC floats

Summer 2009 - after major T-28 repair replaced motor with Turnigy SK35-36 910kV, then Gold 35-36 1100kV, then settled SK 35-30 1100kV as the right power combination for my flying style / ability

Autumn 2009 - purchased lot of 3 x PZ Mustang Gunflghters as parts from crash warranty returns. Two good stock motors and two AR500s. Built 2 P51s working, one with Corsair landing gear.

Autumn 2009 - joined GTAEF Sunday flying meets in Toronto. Great bunch of guys and loving sharing the fun with others.

Winter 2010 - purchased additional SC fuselage and tail to build second 'stock' SC using original wing and motor. Purchased AR6110e

Spring 2010 - started to build last Mustang, with custom Canadian Maple Leaf paint job. Expect to use SK 35-30 1400kV motor for additional speed. Purchased AR500 for this build.

Spring 2010 - major T-28 crash, snapped motor shaft and destroyed fuselage. Replaced fuselage and motor, etc... (delaying P51 build).

Spring 2010 - added 1400kV motor to the first Mustang (without landing gear) - woo hoo!!

Summer 2010 - lots of crashes and repairs to the mustangs... lost orientation, changing DX6i model mid flight !!!, etc...

Fall 2010 - Successfully tested OrangeRX 6 channel receivers.

Fall 2010 - My son (James aged 8) started joining me fly and fly the stock Camo Supercub very well. Lands better than I can !! It's a real joy to fly together.

Late Fall 2010 - Survived another season with all planes still flying!!

Winter 2010 - Santa (CanadaPost) brings an HK Durafly Spitfire 1.4m for Christmas a little early. Joy to the World!!
