I figured since I started this thread I should contribute!

Here is my newly finished Adrenalin sport pylon model. AUW is 17 oz. 3 cell TP2 2100 mah pack. The motor is a "Don Special", I had an ultrafly D/13/32 which was not running properly (had a partially cracked wire inside), so I unwound it and rewound with 10 turns of 23g wire in Wye configuration. Now I can run a 6 x 4 APC prop direct drive at about 17,000 rpm and about 12 amps. I want to get a 6 x 6 prop for more speed but this should do me fine for now. Can't wait to try it out! Now I just need a spinner and I will be all set!

Tommy thanks for getting me the motor spec from that old Hobby Lobby catalog. I was able to use that info to rewind the motor I had and saved me $70!

Working on Gene Bond's Slow Stang. It's about the same dimensions as the slow stick and will have ailerons. Blucor is amazing.

Hey now, I've been working on this darn CAP for quite a while now and I'm still not sure I can have it ready for Sunday(I probably won't be able to make it this Sunday anyway so maybe it will be ready for the following Sunday)

hey, found out about your club a few days ago, scott pm'ed me about it .

heres a little plane i finished and maidened today, and it flew pretty good.

its called 'the ugly' for good reason- just gotta take those flames off of the tail to complete the effect. also, its a bunch of old parts from other stuff- wings from one plane, tail feathers from another, battery from yet another plane, and pther parts and peices laying around.

its a 'bit car' conversion- look in the indoor and micro plane forum for more info on that. basicly, you gut very small and extremely cheap non proportional 2 channel rc car, to get the reciever- weighs 2 grams. anyways, basic specs on it-

16 inch wingspan
25.5 grams auw
150 mah lipo
m20 motor/10mm diameter
6mm diameter motor actuator, spring centering.
