Nice vid
Here's the hobby king one. They actually have some nice stuff but I don't know you can get parts for alot of it. You definitely can't run down to your LHS and get 'em.

Very nice Whirlcap. That was some very creative 3D flying there.
Always enjoy your videos.

I know what you mean there! The opening shot of that video, I am walking back from the field because I was picking my profile foamy up and it s not because I landed it there either . No damage to mine but it is going to take a lot more time before I can fly anywhere near as good as Bill. Getting there though, I can kind of hover but I only do it low as I'm taking off. Really excited about my Slicko 3D build that I am doing right now and I hope it fly's as well as the one I got to try a few weeks ago.

North,
That's the same Hellcat F6F that Nitroplanes and Banana Hobby sells. It's made by FMS and I'm certain they sell-off their over stock to Hobby King. This means you can get parts from any FMS supplier, like PW-RC or SN Hobbies, (CANADA). Maybe Nitroplanes has leftover stock?

But I think parts would be easy to find. A guy at my field has one -- it flies great!

That is great news, Lee
Here the dollar tree foam aint that cheap, and the EPS & EPP dude at work has been in a bad mood lately.
So what are you planning to build? A wing? A top wing? A medium wing? Something completly different? No matter what you decide, may it be a smooth build

WC, that was a beautifull video brother. Loved it.

NH, thanks buddy. I think this week will go down as one of my best in a very long time. I feel dang near "Human" again. hahahaha. I feel like buying something. LOL. Can't decide what to build. I have everything I would need to do just about anything. Quad, tri, auto, etc... maybe a flying superhero or witch? Maybe a starship from a movie? How about a flying musical instrument? haha. Or can of beans, eh Mike? I figuere, I will go to the HK site (or another), and look around. Find something I would like to buy, and then just build it from the pictures. Just too many options. Isn't that wonderfull? hahahaha

Hey Lee,

Glad to hear things are looking up for ya . I got a couple sheets of "Dollar Tree" and a whole bundle of blue core (fff) foam two years ago and have yet to build anything with it I will eventually though I think. I really want to make one of those hydroflyer's, the one that looks like the Air Hog's Storm Launcher. I even found the plans on line (free). Looks like something you can fly, float or skitter around just about anywhere. . should make a cool plane to fly when there is snow on the ground too.

Had fun making the video, still need two KC camera's. some of those ground shots would have been great from the air but I can only shoot one at a time. Flew yesterday for a while, mostly the Assassin, some Carbon Cub and flew a friends Depron 3D foamy, that one scared me a little. Depron isn't at all forgiving if you mess up. Oh ya, got the Champ up and let some interested park watcher's fly it. . I should be a Champ sales rep. I shot some video too, got a shot of two 900 Popwings tangling up, one went down in real bad shape and the other one didn't have a mark . I have yet to "assassinate" anyone up there. I did manage to run the Assassin full throttle into the ground! Complete blunder on my part and I have not yet looked to see if I got it on video. Did some minor damage, knocked the elevon horns loose and bent the metal motor mount, fixed both right at the park and had another flight. Really love that plane. Once you go "wing" you never (hardly) go back

I have considered the storm launcher and/or that mario cart thingy. Don't know why I didn't do one. Have to say, sounds like fun. Of a catamaran(sp). Heck, decisions decisions. hahahaha

Whirlcap... Very very nice! Love that KC camera ya got! That is coming in crystal clear here, and oh, that version of sail is my favorite with that piano part, awesome brother! Working on getting a cap like yours done up but with a yellow piper cub taildragger. Couldn't find a champ to put on it, but the cub will look great. Maybe even put the words RC Groups underneath. No propellor on the top though. haaa Ya get get 5 corns from me on this one.
