I'm starting to think I am a bit weird... my whole fleet is scratchbuilds, except with for my radian, which will soon be replaced with a better scratchbuilt version anyway (same dimensions better materials).

And yeah, close enough

I've switched entirely to scratchbuilds, and the bulk of my building has been in balsa lately. The only non-scratch plane I've bought in the last few years is my Slow Stick, which is a plane that I believe no hangar should be without. I've also been given two other planes, a Dynam Hawk Sky and an Exceed RC Accipiter Badius motor glider. I like the Hawk Sky a lot but the Badius hasn't seen much flight time.

In this picture we have my Slipso, the new Stik, its 60%-scale version, and a foamie wing that's got a one-way ticket to the trash pile. The three balsa models all fly beautifully, but that dumb wing is temperamental, unstable, and very poorly mannered. I've got ideas for a replacement, though.

I've found that if you break your slow stick, the best option is to build a replacement. My slow stick is pretty much a scratchbuild now

Guys, normal R/C props spin clockwise (when you look at them from the back), right? Just installed a 7x5 ( vs. 7x4) on my PopWing and it's CCW and not CW... interesting.

if you look at a NORMAL plane NOT a popwing like an extra or something. if you look at it from nose to butt the prop will spin to the left. idk about your case though.

I could just barely squeeze my Edge into the car! Bigger = more space too, mostly
