the nose length is to scale with the fuselage shape, the width of the fuzz is a little bit narrower and the wing is increased in size by about 10%...I just do what looks right...the wing is about the same as a MIG, but the fuzz is a bit longer

50 inch wing span seems to be the sweet spot

Not sure where the Captain of this ship is , but I thought since there is a VERY nice wind predicted for later today, how about we get all the models built at FB's build group, to Maitlands for the maidens/fly/photo shoot?

Well i was totally unimpressed by the wind not showing up...how dare it!!!

pretty stoked that Lyntons EcoroStang flew this morning,and mine got about 5 minutes airtime before the wind died again.

The Alula Fest kept me well entertained, thanks guys

btw Bakkie,you going to have to show us your trick again where you put your transmitter down on the ground while your plane is in the air.

A-10 CorrtHog

the CorroSabre wing # 3 hasnt flown yet, and the CorroSpit is still not painted, and there's a black weasel go'in on a diet, but......

what do ya'll think about this ???

probly stretch the wingspan by 10%, but should I move the wing forward just a bit ?

another other mods from scale to make a better PSS ?
