I have sooo many projects in the works with never enough time lol. lately I decided to work on my aileron skill set. have been doing 4 or so flights a day on my 2 trainers. I got the 4 channel skill set down now to the point i'm almost sick of it. Practice, Practice, Practice. That and doing landings with bigger heavier planes.

Quads waiting for a battery ( Massive HK mess up ). Working on a second 4 channel AP plane, Almost done with the Bipe. Started a full fuse delta jet tonight. Have a few odd ball designs on paper almost ready to try. Got lights but have not had time to mount of fly them. Hovercraft is still in the I'm thinking about it phase.

Hope things are going good with you. Any new planes?

You're a busy guy ! Is that delta jet your own design ? Gonna fulfill the need for speed ?

I'm mostly building for the indoor season up here in it - never - stops - raining - land . Made a 1/2 size SE , and a hovercraft that also flies . Currently working on a small vectored thrust kite and a smaller blimp .

The delta is my design... got a few odd ideas I want to try lol. If it works I will post it if not it goes in the pile of shame. How did that Small SE fly? Got a vid? The kite and blimp sound real interesting too.

Here is a vid of the Bipe I Maidened today. Flys great. It was one of those build it as you go designs. Worked out okay.

FirstBipe (4 min 56 sec)

Bipe looks GREAT ! Love your sunshine and blue skies !

The small SE flies fine , I'll shoot a video at the indoor fly Thursday eve . I should have the kite and blimp ready by then , too ..... but the flying hovercraft needs repairs from a crash before I can shoot a video of it .
