[QUOTE=PoudreDerf]Model airplane flying is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be scientific, pushing the envelope of technology.
In that spirit, may I present the Beaver Tri-Motor!
In truth, I was building my A-10, and put the EDF's down. I then set my Beaver on the bench and took a look at what I had. Hmm. Tempting.
Now I'm looking at a completed A-10, and wondering if I can make a float plane out of it. A jet float plane! Oh Mr. Lin, don't be mad at me.
I am convinced that GWS planes are like LEGO's. They're building blocks.
Ya, but does it fly? We need pictures or footage!!!

Check out these pics!
Here is the Formosa II GWS pattern plane I have been doing R & D on. I am using a stock 350 duel D power plant and a 3s1p 2100 lipo. Jarhead

Here are some pics of my Me-109 in Finnish Air Force color scheme.
I have also included some pics of my new creation, my Amphibious Corsair. I have modified it so I can switch back to wheels. I haven't flown her with the floats on yet. I'll let you know how she maidens in the next couple of weeks.

Tiger Moth 400 has always been one of my favorite planes. My moth was getting pretty old and the paint had started to wear out so I decided to do a face lift.
I sanded off all the paint on it and covered it with light-ex film. Haven't had a chance to fly it yet so can't tell how much the flight characteristics will suffer from the added weight (I am guessing about 30g.) but the looks turned out pretty good .
I used to fly it with the stock motor 10x6 prop and 3s 2000mah kokams, and she used to be a joy to fly. I will try the same setup and if it doesnt work I will start thinking about my first brushless
So my setup is:
Stcok 400 motor with D gearing
10x6HD GWS Prop
3S 2000 mah Kokams
50 amp skyborne speed controller (I know this sounds stupid
3 GWS servos
Here are a few pics after the new make up.

Addition to my GWS planes, just flew its maiden flight this morning. After a minor trim on the roll by a much experienced flyer it flew nicely. Everybody on the field just appreciates the scale flying of this bird.
Stock ips motors with 3x2 prop
2xGWS servo for the ailerons
2xHS-55 servo for the rudder/steering and elevator
ICS-300Li for the ESC
Modified the nose gear(moved a little aft) and changed the stock foam wheels for much scale look.
2S Xpower 1050mAh
Also added navlights that switches on when the batt voltage reaches 6.4V.
With this mod, add-ons, spackling paste and paint shes heavy with AUW of 510grams but still flies great!
Here are pics just after the maiden.
