An ARF I picked up here a couple weeks ago, thanks Oilfly!

Went a little overkill with electronics but only added a few ounces of weight from the recommended setup. All standard size HV servos rather than 2 minis and 2 standard, and swings a 2" larger prop.

Savox 2274 brushless HV on ailerons and rudder
Savox 1254 coreless HV low profile on elevator
Motrolfly DM-4330 400kv
Castle 120HV and BEC pro
Falcon CF 19x8e
6s 5000mah
AUW=8lbs 3ozs

It seems that the boat donated to the West Sayville Maritime Museum this year for the annual boat burning will be the "Wave Maker" a 1964 38 ft Chris Craft sea skiff. I don't know what model Chris, might be a Corinthian...

I decided to do another build based on the Atom V2 frame after seeing the F4 Zeus became available from HGLRC. The first edition of the "Poor man's Atom V2" took a pretty hard crash into a water tank and unfortunately the OSD chip on the HGLRC F3 V4 FC gave out and even though I felt bad about it, I got hundreds of flights and crashes out of that board. I was actually surprised that after ripping the antenna off of the board three different times that the board worked for as long as it did. I like the Atom V2 frame kit because it's extremely durable, protects the electronics, lightweight and looks damn good!



Parts used:

I will soon be offering a short kit of a fiberglass fuselage and foam wing 46" long T-33 that I designed myself, designed for a 90mm fan and retracts. I made the molds and flew the prototype a number of times. Here's a link to the thread about it:
https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...t-in-the-works

The other airplanes in one of the photos are my designs also, the 43" long F-22 is a twin MF480 design with retracts, a laser cut kit was developed later and may be available soon if there's interest, the F-4 was 90mm powered, 51" long with retracts, no kit yet but a possibility since it like all my airplanes was drawn on the computer with DesignCad.

On the day the RS-25 & the BE-4 were both test fired, Musk's comeback was a picture of his shoes in front of a bunch of jack o lanterns.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BaSlAOTg...en-by=elonmusk

Does he dress up at home? Based on the spynet, he wasn't at home. The pool didn't match, but it wasn't much different than his 1st mansion.


http://variety.com/2016/dirt/real-es...on-1201888308/



Bet you didn't know Elon Musk was slowly buying up an entire hillside on Chalon Rd, Bel Air. Is he going to build a launch pad? Is he going to build a massive transit center for his tunnels? Is he trying to get a better view of his rockets landing? Is he buying more room to store his toys?


It's probably more practical, like storing wealth in real estate. It's currently $100 million. It's not a very diverse portfolio, but more practical than a house in Idaho. To be sure, he doesn't really have $20 billion in cash. It's private equity valued at whatever the fed deems necessary to ensure total employment, but worthless if he sold it all at once.


Looking at the photo of the shiny shoes by the pool, the lion kingdom wondered how someone not much different than the rest of us could achieve so much more. He's not supremely intelligent like Steve Jurvetson, but only an incremental step above the rest of us. He's not very good at giving speeches or interviews. His highest formal education was 2 bachelor's degrees from UPenn, in economics & physics.


He has above normal intuition about problems & finding ways to solve them by rearranging existing technologies, but not by much. His 1st company was founded with $28,000 of his father's money, or $280,000 in today's doll hairs. Theoretically, his father also paid for all his education, leaving him debt free. Even then, if the lion kingdom had $280,000 of dad's money, it would probably go in a bond fund.

Departed Shannon, Ireland, destination Burbank, LaLaLand. Gulfstream 4. Westbound at FL430, Mach .80 (gas saving speed).

Talking to Artic control, we are way north of Hudson Bay. Has been really quiet on the freq, is VHF thru a remote from somewhere down there. Center calls with traffic.

"Traffic 6 o'clock 60 miles 1100 knot overtake, no altitude readout, in fact is a primary target only intermittently, we're not talking to him."

I look over at the F.O., who puts down his paper, and he asks "and what does he want us to do about it?"

The controller says that we are on a merge track, but he has an idea... be right back.

A full minute goes by...

"Your traffic is on a flight from Mildenhall (mil base in Great Britain) to Mather (military base in California), and is not in controlled airspace (60,000 feet and below), and by the way, your targets just merged."

The hair on my arms sticks straight up, even now as I type this.

I lean forward and look up. The now familiar black double triangle shape was speeding by 20,000 feet above us, with two dark yellow triangle cones from the engines.

From the time he passed overhead to disappearing over the horizon out in front of us was all of 2 minutes.

37 years of amazing things seen while airbourne, that was one of the best.
