I dont think i will try the loops and rolls . lol Iam roadking97 on another site and they have my build thread on this site too. Here is the thread. joe http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=710485

Some shots a gentleman was nice enough to provide me with from a couple of weeks ago. My buddy Sparkxx38 and I were out flying this morning and a guy showed up and decided to shoot photos of our planes flying. Here are a few of my favorites and I am sure Sparkxx38 will be on later to post up his. Great fun as usual.

Thanks, Desmobob. The control throws were too high, the ST .51 engine was unreliable, and it was his first flight in over 10 years. Unfortunately, his wing folded in flight a few weeks later, and while it's repairable, it's low on his priority list. Who specs a light ply wing joiner blade?!

He's scratch-built a biplane that will hopefully sport floats before the season is over. You can find videos of it on my youtube page.

Can you call it a float plane if it doesn't use floats? It's flying over water.

A couple of photos of my Drake II at Flagstaff Lake this summer. A very nice flyer. Built in 2006.
