What's Your Plan For 2013

Hi Guys
just wondering whats your plan for 2013.Any new planes planned for the Building Board?
I had a bad year last year wrote off my Habu 32 and Schreiner L39 so I need to get one of these back on the table.I was thinking of doing a bog standard build of the Bu first. No Tams retracts or Stus Fan for now, just build stock and as light as possible. Or would you do the Savex L39 DEcisions Decisions.I know there are some of you out there with both so which is the easiest to fly?
Cheers
Steve.

I have a JTM xXx on order, that one is high on the list of things to get ready before the flying season starts around Easter, but first of all I need to get a ESM Bearcat finished, this one has of course been converted to electric power. After these two, the plan is to get some paint on a Aeronaut Panther, and then try to get my JHH Cougar finished off and flying sometime during the summer. And last but not least continue working on my Airworld F-5.

Should be enough to keep me happy I think, if not I also have a MR Aerodesign PC-6 Turbo Porter that I really should get finished off.

I got a Habu 32 to build this winter and pickup a Stumax 80mm for it. I also have a Steve Neill 90mm Ta-183 Huckebein the Steve himself built. Last summer I purchased it from Dave the former owner of EAM. Tried to fly it last year but I could get enough speed up on grass with retracts then I blew the ESC. So I'm going to remove the gear and bungee launch the Ta-183. I don't have experience with bungee launching so I picked up an E-Flite F-86 to practice with.

I'm going to transfer my 90mm set up into a JEPE A-4 all composite airframe and..... I'm buying a turbine!!! I'm looking at a kingtech 80 and either a tornado or falcon 120. After that my wife will kill me if I build anything else as we are quickly running out of room for my models lol. Happy new year everyone!

Hope to have the MiG 19 in the air by our Spring fly-in.

Then start on a 90mm F-8.

Canard year.

#1 Presently in work is a Herschel HS P75. This will be an improved model that I built and flown about 2 years ago. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=91337
#2 Lockheed L-133 with 2 ea 70mm fans. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=334483
Both will have over a 5' wingspan.
Still have two other planes that hopefully will finish also .

Naah, I think I have at least 10 other projects stuffed away at home that either needs to be fixed, or picked up again if I ever get bored/run out of work. And another 5-10 plans of planes I'd like to build, and 3 planes I want to design/scratchbuild at some point in the future.

My problem is the lack of focus, I really need to work hard with myself to stay on track and work on one or at most two planes at a time, but it is hard when there are so many cool planes out there I'd love to have.

I think the Bu is a much better plane...The Savex looks funny to me and flies to much like a trainer.

I'll bet you could get my models for dirt cheap considering how mad she would be lol. I can't help myself. I guess it could be worse I could have a gambling addiction lol. I always tell her at least our son will have the best show and tell lol.
