My Second Entry

This is my Multiplex MicroJet. This is my fastest model, yet is controlled by a mere Phoenix-25. Top speed has been clocked at 127mph in level. This is my second MJ, but I'm still using the orignal CC PH-25.

StevensAero Cap 232 was built by me last winter/summer. It uses a Hacker A30-12XL, Caslte Creation PH-45 and a 4s 3700 EvoPower battery. This combination resulted in 730watts of power in a 3.5lb plane.

This is another scratch built, own desgin. The sport scale Cessna 177 Cardinal is powered by an AstroFlight 020, and controlled by a Castle Creations PH-25, and a 3s 2100 Apex. Though it has a light wing loading, and trainer like stall characteristics, this model is capable of some impressive manuevers: knife edge, blender, snaps, hovering, and many other non-cessna like moves.

My Twelfth Entry

The Twin Spin is a concept aircraft to test how twins need to be set up electronically, and how they would fly. This is our first twin, and performance was surprisingly good. Even though the props are almost 50% of the wing span, the twin spin doesn't have uncontrollable torque and P-Factor issues.
Power comes from two AstroFlight 010 3.3:1s, 2 Castle Creations PH-10s and a single 3S 1580 to 2100 lipo. Gear is removable for grass landings.

This is my GWS Dragonfly Heli. Mods incude: Like90 Blades, Astroflight 010 Heli motor, Castle Creations PH-10, and direct drive tail. Power comes from a 1570 3S pack, which provides serious punch out power (enough for loops... this thing is fixed pitch!) and 20 minute flights.
