It was alot of fun. Would have been alot more fun if I'd had my Dev going

Hopefully it will be back up soon. I'm trying ot get the old Hyperwing back up, but it isn't cooperating. If all else fails, I may have to build a fan fold wing to go at you guys with.

Get ready, cause I may bring my 'Nutz to the field.

Just so everyone knows what I'm working on, here's a pic of my current big project. Everyone has heard me talk about it. Hopefully it will be ready to go by the St Gen fly in.

This isn't actually mine-I pulled it from the original thread for the B-17 conversion. Mine is still a pile of gray foam right now. I've got everything for it, even got some 3 blade props.

I was going to say WOW Nick! If it's still a pile of foam, you better get cracking on it! Are you using the stock motors and battery with it?

No, not a SPAD Me109, I was thinking of a SPAD He 111 and doing the full contact combat! Just kidding...

It would be cool to do a fake combat type thing with Nick's GWS Me 109. That would look just great!

Didn't the Luftwaffe have a flying wing type plane? Could a Devastator be modified to look like it? Hmmm, interesting...

Dave,
Imagine...

It's pretty big....Hehe

I am working on it...most of the work is in the finishing.

I'm using the stock motors. Everyone says it has plenty of power. I can't find any specs on what is recommended, so I just made an 8 cell 2400SCR pack. Some other guys were using these, and they seem to give good results.

Combat...only if I can get up high and drop contact explosive on everyone's planes as they sit on the ground...How's that for realism?

BTW, how does everyone like the new look? Looks like a Mac got hold of it!

What's up with this snow? In case it's not coming down where you guys are, we area bout half an hour away from 1 inch on the ground. Wasn't it like 75 degrees 4 days ago? And itsn't it supposed to be nearly 80 this weekend? I mean, seriously, somebody needs to slap this weather system back into line. The weather never used to get this out of hand, at least not as I remember.

Arrgh. Spend time inside building I guess. Neraly finished with my Mig 15. should be ready for a test flight this weekend. It's gonna scream! 3 turn Mega in the fan unit with lithium batteries. Make all the Mega Fuller Lipo Suction Motor jokes you guys want, but this thing is going to be sick.

It's because of the current party in office. If the other party was in office we wouldn't have such strange weather....

Just kidding!

Oh? What did Gore say? That he invented global warming? Or that the internal combustion engine is the most evil device evr invented and should be burned at the stake?

I think we should ammend the Constitution and elect arnold president. Everybody would be afraid to mess with us then.
