2003 Escalade ESV model arrived last Friday. What a beast! This is a heavy and very large model. The rarity of it puts it price very high, but for a good price I am ok with the quality. It has folding and sliding/reclining seats, a flip down dvd player, and a nicely detailed engine.

Back in February I got a 1/18 BMW 750Li, this time in BLACK and also the LCI (mid lifecycle refresh) version. Nicely detailed for a Kyosho model.

Bought this back in May 2016, but haven't posted it. The S550 is a very good model made by Norev, one of their best releases from what I have heard.

Nicely detailed but not as good as an AUTOart, but also a fraction f the price when released (expensive now).

Finally got my hands on one of these massive beauties! This thing is enormous! It is so much larger than a regular S class, and even a Suburban 2500 pales in comparison.

The detail on this thing is incredible! From the photoetched Maybach hood ornament to the cargo net in the trunk to the roof gauges and minuscule button detail, this car has a phenomenal level of detail. The front vents are a true mesh as opposed to the textured plastic seen on so many other models. The only gripe I have with it is also a good thing, the shut lines are so tight and precise if the rear door is opened on its own without the front door first being opened the paint on the door can chip. By no means should that be a turn off to anyone considering one of these, it is an amazing model that is right at home in any collection.

My review of the Eachine EX110. Stock Cleanflight and PIDs and it flies decently out of the box.

Hobby-wise, I'm in the strange situation of having more stuff to do than time to do it! Due to a conjunction of unforeseen factors, work has been extraordinarily busy in the past three months and I still have five days to go.

Things on the board:
- 4 racing quads, two being assembled and two needing maintenance
- 4 jets, 50 and 64mm EDF, low priority now that we don't have access to the largest field on the island.
- 3 balsa aerobatic planes, same as the jets
- 1 scale balsa biplane being assembled for a friend, that really needs to get out of my shop
- 1 450-class helicopter being assembled
- 1 seaplane being assembled, to fly at my folks' place
- 1 DLG, that's almost done

This can save the day and only takes about 15 minutes to make. I used:
1. Old clamps from cheap jumper cables.
2. 10" pieces of 12 gauge silicone wire.
3 . XT30 plug to match battery pack
4. Shrink wrap and solder.
5. 4S 14.4v 35C LiPo
5. A 3S battery will work but I would leave it attached 60 seconds before trying to start the vehicle.

This will jump a very dead battery on a full size pickup or full size van. Tested on both. On the truck my 110v 40A floor charger with 200A cranking power would not start it. This item started first crank every time. DON'T leave it connected after the vehicle starts.

Oh Mondays..

The Main Fleet: My RC Aircraft Collection - Updated December 10, 2016 (0 min 51 sec)

I was able to maiden and complete 8 additional flights over the weekend with my new Eflite Spitfire Mk XIV 1.2m before the weather took a turn for some snow. The maiden was very uneventful flying on AS3X-Only (No SAFE), despite my CG being around 85mm, using 3S 2200mAh lipos slammed as far forward, close to the back of the motor. There was minimal pitching up, nothing 5 clicks of down fixed. I did not notice the pitching up that some other Spitfire Pilots have mentioned, which was a good thing. After some minimal trim to get the plane level, I had some fun in the flights that followed.

This is definitely a fun plane, and provides a lot of scale flight presence. A beauty in flight, especially with the twin cannons jutting out of the main wings as it flies overhead. Low passes down the field are impressive, and the plane is very agile for its size. This is also my first warbird with split flaps, which is pretty cool to see. Lining up the Spitfire for Touch and gos on Half Flaps, and Landings on Full Flaps with this plane can't get any easier, as this plane loves to float in so gentle on the astroturf.

The only thing I wish this plane had, was more power.. as I am used to the rocket-like power of my FMS 750-800mm warbirds that all fly on 3S 1300mAh lipos. Most of my flights with the Spitfire were at 80-100% throttle, which makes me think to myself.. that...Continue Reading

When Sara and Roger Parish retired several years ago, I purchased their share (43%) of the company for $56,000.00 to keep Wren open and solvent. I also loaned the company 20,000 GBP (at the time the exchange rate equaled $34,000.00) to keep the doors open. Mike Murphy personally signed a contract for this loan, which was never honored. Little did I realize that they were in such financial trouble. So when they took a "Voluntary Liquidation", I lost all investments I had put in the company. If you watch their Face Book site...anytime someone posts a question regarding their order that has been paid for but not filled...the posts mysteriously disappear. Although I was with the company for more than 7 years, and a major shareholder, I had no say in the day to day operations of the company.
After they filled liquidation, the company changed names and reopened days later under a new name at the same address. They had listed very little inventory at the time of the liquidation, but were advertising new motors days later. I agreed to leave the company and turn over my shares if the orders that I had already been placed and paid for were honored and delivered. Otherwise I would have had to reimburse all of the US customers that had prepaid for motors (in excess of $22,000.00)
They walked away from more than 400,000.00 GBP of outstanding debt, so I feel lucky that my personal loss was not more !
This will be my only post regarding this issue. The real facts and the truth are out there. You just have to search for the truth...
