Yippee!
Like I NEED Another Plane

I took a step back today to reflect and give thanks for all the nice people I have met and all the fun I have had flying RC the past 3 years. I started in the hobby back in October of 2004.

I got in from work early this afternoon and it was such a nice afternoon I though ... "this would be a perfect time to take a group shot" !

So I slapped all the models together for these nice spreads in my driveway. Some of the models I have had since the beginning of my RC experience. The Super Star, Fun World & Soar Star were all bought in the first 6 weeks of my first maiden flight back in Oct of 2004. The Superstar is actually my first plane ... and still flys great.

All of these models are RTF except for 1 receivers and a couple ESCs.

So I am taking a step back here a few days before Thanksgiving to take stock and give thanks for all the RC Fun I have had the past 3 years. What a Great Addiction ... Uh .... Hobby, yea hobby ... that's what I ment.

Here is the Line Up in the pics below:

Super Sportster EP

Mini Ultra Stick
Mini E3D
EP Sailor 2 meter
F16 EDF
Fun World EP
PAM Tiger Moth
Liberty 182
J3 Cub
SA Cap 232 .40e
Here are the Videos of most of these models

If your TX memory isn't full...then you "need" more planes. You aren't getting your money's worth for the TX. IHMO

Man .... I like your way of thinking.

Let's see ... Optic 6 - eight models AND a Flash 5 - 5 models. Nope, that's 13. All filled up. Guess I just need to crash something.

But I am really eyeballing a new Neoplanes Yak 54.

Sorry Mike,

mrm1,
Those are a pair of great photographs, and an excellent idea for a posting. I really think you DESERVE another radio for Christmas! Solves all sorts of issues....
Excellent posting!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! Clear skies and tailwinds.

You are right about the weather. Just looked for possible flight on Friday. Wind is way up but it is in the right direction. I will keep an eye on it perhaps after a full stomach of turkey the wind won't look so bad on friday.

Hey Fred,

Well I am Down with the Yak. Sucker for a Deal I guess.

Thanksgiv’n it away SALE!

is on at NeoPlanes

Just got my Scratch-n-Dent Yak 54 ordered for $64.99. Hope it gets here next week. Should arrive just about the same time as my servos and stuff from china. If anyone is waiting to pull the trigger on a nice 3D Yak ... what more of an excuse do you need

Will be powering it with an KD 36-16M which is basicly a Hacker A30-16M Clone. should be able to power this 37oz model with about 140 watts per lb. Actually hoping for more ... but we will see about that. Need to go out and run some bench tests on the KD to see what it will do.

Since I have found nothing on RCG about this model, I will probably do a Build thread in the 3D section.

Later
Mike

Well first how much trouble are you in? Second are still living in the house?LOL
You will have fun with it that is for sure. There is always room for another plane that is what I have found anyway.
I will let you know when my motor and speed controler arrives so we can hook it up as I might need help because of the three wire confiquration rather than two on the brushed. I better check see if I have any deans plugs forgot about that.
Looking forward to a sportster race.

Fred
