My collection of planes
Some have come and gone, and some i still have. while some i continue to replace and will always be part of my hangar
this was the 1st site i came to. when i got the interest to fly rc planes ,and the plane that caught my attention was a custom made plane made by blanik 213 . it was a twinjet he customized and called the aurura
i always wanted to get into fast planes and i first had to take baby steps. so along the trip to learning how to fly . ive gathered some planes that i will always have even ,if i get to the stage i want to be in and this is the over 150mph club ., fast planes always put a smile on my face when i see them or when i fly mine , although the fastest plane right now that i have ,only does ,about 120 tops on a dive . its fast enough for me right now
the pictures are not in the order of when i first started to fly but if you read the post under the pics you can get an idea of what planes i learned on or learned from
SKYRAIDER A-1 63INCH WINGSPAN
this is my 2nd warbird i dont have much interest in warbirds due to the fact that they are slow flyers , and its basically the opposite of what i like but i decided i needed one in my hangar just to have for warbird events at club flyins . this plane happens to be my biggest plane , it flies great considering its size and weight . i thought about selling it from time to time but its a keeper
HK:FLYJET X-83 top speed 110mph leveled
although a clone of the funjet of sort this one is an edf version . i cannot compare it to the funjet but i assume the funjet is faster being that this frame is draggy . still all in all ,i love how it flies and at the cost of 45.00 i purchased a few to make sure i have one in my hangar at all times. the red version is going to be my edf version . im going to power it with at least 1000 watts unit so it can go as fast or faster than my prop version ,as of right now. the prop version . im running a cheap set up, but im going to upgrade to a het2w25 motor in the winter
another of my favorite planes .both my stryker and flyjet x-83 get the same power set ups. the first one doesnt have a motor yet
the blk n red one is powered by a grayson supermega jet motor its a decent motor that gets me 90mph both have been reinforced with 5mm carbon rods to prevent wing flex the orange one was my 1st stryker after it was unflyable i recycled the parts which are in the blk n red one
destroyed on it on its maiden flight . i slammed it to the ground head first at over 90mph i got over confident from flying my stryker , and this is a different beast that bit me . ive been looking for a replacement for over 5months now . the next one will be custom painted in white with red graphics simular to the flyjet x-83
this is a scratch built by a friend from the Rc club im in (pete) AKA MEANBABY here on RCgroups . this another of my favorite planes that i will always have in my hangar. ive seen a few different seaplanes on water and this is in my opinion the best seaplane . it skipps off the water , takes off on grass, snow ,and pavement , it practically hovers to land . it has pretty decent speeds ,its no wonder theres a large following here at RCGroups
MAXJET F18 (64mm edf)
i decided to buy one rtf and two kits just in case i crash the rtf . i winded up crashing the tiger theme and giving away the other two as gifts.
BLITZWORKS GIANT A-10
this is my favorite modern warbird/jet i just had to have one in my hangar unfortunetly i crashed on its madien . i used the stock glue to built it and learned the hard way next time "to use aftermarket epoxy" . i have yet to see this model back in stock @ bannana hobbies . so i may just have to get the bigger version later on in the future ,but its going to be a kit. ive learned to just buy kits and just save money' after crashing the edfs .i gave up on edf.s for about a year, then i got the bug again
48INCH UGLY STICK
lost on madien due to poor radio signal , brown out . it was my 1st balsa plane it flew awesome for the 5min it was up in the air, it was found 6months later by another club member , i gave it away to a new member and he still flying it till this day ,awesome plane i purchased another one , and its become one of my favorite flyers
HK:260 EDGE 48INCH WS
this was a P.O.S plane but i mange to keep flying ,for a whole summer till i got the hang of flying so overall it did its job
NSP ACCORD 50INCH WS (NO LONGER MADE)
my 2nd balsa plane it crashed on its madien , i gave the controls to a fellow member to maiden it for me(.i didnt have the skills to trim out planes) the control where reversed so it went up and came back down ,very hard ,totalled !!!!
one of my all time favorite planes . this plane does it all !i will always have a cub in my hangar , most likely a funbub
a scratch buillt profile jet i made ,this one was my 1st scratch built that actually flew and it flew great i even put landing gear on it .im going to make another one using the parts from my blk n red stryker ,( when i retire her )or when she decide to take a dirt nap hopefully not for a long time
TUFF WING 24INCH WS
one of many wings that ive had and have . i have a small selection of wings from 24inch to 40inch i love wings. they can fly in just about any kind of wind
DYNAM GRAND CRUISER
awesome flying scale plane i gave it away ,to my nephew . and till this day ive been wanting to get another one ,but the next one i will upgrade the motors and reinforce the wings with 5mm carbon fiber so it can fly faster
great flying combat planes the white one i changed the look of it to my liking and the yellow one i gave away to a member at the club im in and he loves it and still flyies his .unfortunetly mine was totalled and i havent gotten around to building another one maybe this winter
DYNAM PEAKS EXTREME(AKA PITTS S2)
i bit the bullet and got myself another one of these in yellow . i couldnt help it i love biplanes and nitroplanes had the free shipping sale going on .i swore not to get another one, because of all the mods needed, for it to fly without something breaking or coming apart. im not a 3d flyer but i did all the major mods that need to be done.
THESE ARE PLANES I DONT HAVE PICS OF THEM BUT I WILL MENTION THEM
PARKZONE BF 190 i didnt like how it flew so i gave it away
VALUE HOBBY 36INCH WS BALSA PITTS SPECIAL .above my flying skill, crashed to many times so i had to retire it,flew great
DYNAM PITTS SPECIAL.red flies awesome when in the air but needs alot of work to be airworthy i recomend kit version and patients
BLITZWORKS 70MM EDF F18 once its trimmed out i have to say an awesome edf to fly very easy to fly and predictable . floats in to land
AIRFIELD 64MM F18 ( got it to fly formation with the guys at the rc club).
DRONGO (SEA PLANE) its like a funjet for the water awesome plane
DYNAM SKYHAWK (my 1st plane) my trainer. what can i say i learned how to fly on this plane
KESL WING my night flyer
PS 511 36INCH WS WING( custom made by a member of the rc club im in)
PS511 RR same wing as above but made to go over 80mph
DAVID WING 20 inch ws scratch built . very twichy and fast ,great practice to learn to fly fast wings "like the strker and funjet"
KILLERPLANES a custom made sky hawk made to be crash proof. awesome planes.great plane for a beginner . its a modified skhawk. which has been reinforced to take a beating from beginners.
