I just started flying RC airplanes the first week of November, 2019. I had actually tried over 10 years ago with cheap 3 channel planes, but was not very successful back then. I have been flying helis and quadcopters a lot since then, but got the bug to try airplanes. I had some success with flying quadcopters in acro but never really got good at it.

So the first plane I bought was an XK A430 four channel foam plane. I was successful in flying that one but also managed to crash it and do major damage on about the sixth flight. I don't know anyone around here that is into RC and as far as I know there are no RC clubs around, so I have always had to learn on my own. I do read a lot on RCGroups and pick up a lot of info from here, but that is not the same as having a competent person to teach you or show you what you are doing wrong. I learned a lot about repairing a foam plane from the A430 crash, but I had to order a new prop mount after putting it all back together. Still didn't know if it would fly right after the repairs, so I also ordered an XK A600 and received it about the same time I got the prop mount the last week of November, 2019. Main reason for ordering the XK planes was because I have an XK X7 radio I could fly them with, which is a little bit better programmable transmitter.

I had better success with the A600 and it helped me learn how to fly a plane. I have crashed it, but have only sustained minor damage. I liked the way I could fly it...Continue Reading

To all members
I believe that if you are looking at this blog you may have some interest in a classified ad that I recently posted, but may be a little suspicious of any ad’s posted by a NEW member (Jan 2020) with NO trade rating (ZERO). I can certainly understand being cautious I know I would feel the same way if I were in your shoes. So first off let me assure you this is not any type of a scam, I’m just a devoted son try to comply with his father last wishes. As stated in the text this kit comes from the estate of my father, an avid R/C hobbyist and collector who lived in Portland Oregon. My dad built and flew model air planes from 1937 to 1996 in the Portland, Camas and Hillsborough area and amassed a large collection..
My father passed in 2002 and in his “last will and testament” stated that his collection of RC planes, kits and accessories were not “TOYS” and needed to be treated accordingly. His collection passed to my mother and remained “untouched”, per her wishes, until her passing last year. It is now time to deal with this collection. I know my dad would want the items in his collection to go to builders and flyers of model air planes who have the same passion for this hobby as he did. Therefore, selling these items on eBay just doesn’t seem right.
So while researching classified ads of some of my dad’s kits online I came across “RCgroups.com”. I thought this might be a good place to start exposing his collection, so I joined. I do not know any members,...Continue Reading

So I started this project 6 years ago. It was my first helicopter purchase, a blade 400 with fly bar.
I bought the fuselage from Darthdrk if memory serves me right. I do remember the original build went to get her quick and very half thought out on my side. At the time I started it I had little helicopter experience and thought I would just take my Blade 400 convert it to FBL and stuff it in the fuselage. And that’s exactly what I did.
First flight went just as your thinking right now, horrible and end as you would expect l, picking up pieces. And putting in a box for a later day. As I learned a very important lesson. Helicopters are more complex than planes.

Forward 5+ years and many more helicopters and experience to me purchasing an ARF A-109 450 from MotionRC. It was ok and had a few flights before I crashed it. Because of parts I was forced to rebuild it into a MD500e. Learned a bit about helicopter mounting into fuselage. After that was done I had a really bad vibration which had caused some flight issues. So doing some research I decided to go with a more scale look with a 5 blade head to utilize a low head speed.
Well I learned more about helicopters than I had ever anticipated. At the end I have a very nice flying MD500E that is rock solid.

So after that finished and feeling more knowledgeable and confident, I pulled the BlueThunder project out. I won’t get into to much of the build, but I got the phasing , the control rods and servos and the blade...Continue Reading

Eachine EMAX EAT03 RC Car
Coupon: BGEachineFPV - https://www.banggood.com/custlink/vmDGQKe3AR
77€ - with FPV goggles
EMAX EAT03 is a small RC car with FPV camera and remote control. Great toys for every young RC beginner. Identical to the EMAX Interceptor RC car.


The red EMAX Interceptor RC car is identical with the blue Eachine EAT03

EMAX Interceptor Eachine EAT03 FPV RC Auto (3 min 23 sec)


It is really fun to drive around the apartment by car. Since the car is very small, it can get through almost any small gap. The perspective is funny as if you were a little mouse running through the apartment. Behind thicker walls, the video reception is worse, so a better antenna may help. A great FPV car that I can recommend to everyone.
And as I said, the difference between Eachine EAT03 and Emax Intereptor is only the color blue instead of red.

Absolutely loving my new 94” MXS. Not sure why I waited so long to own one. Really wide flight envelope, and excels at both high energy tumbles as well as low and slow.
- Extreme Flight airframe and bling
- GP76 for power
- Northwest RC spinner and pilot
- B&E Graphix
- Emcotec fuel dot
- Spektrum Powersafe receiver

I removed the landing gear on my TT to compare power off glide performance and was amazed at the difference both at high and low speed. With a folding prop and ESC programmed for brake there is no windmilling drag and no risk of prop damage during grass belly landings. My favorite foamy motorglider is the Multiplex Heron and it outperforms the TT. This mod is a compromise but can be usefull when soaring over hills or treelines or when landing on soft sand .

I don't know who Mr. Xing is, But he builds one nasty motor. I like building with balsa and using cheap quad motors to power them. My moulded red Demon has a F-80 T-motor on 8s, Just over 200 Mph and faster in a dive. This xing motor is awesome, Going to build a fuse for this elliptical wing and a 2806.5 1900Kv Xing with 7x4 APC on 6s. That's 200 watts more than the demon. Impressive motor for thirty bucks. I have the 1300 Kv xing on it's way to see what it will do on 8s.

I've started to add some layers to the face and body. I tend to start with the leather objects first like the helmet, gloves and boots. I'm still working on a color for his flight suit. I often experiment with a bunch of color schemes until I find one I like. Here are the latest pics ...

My very first RC airplane was a Super chipmunk ARF. I remember having save money and walked into a Hobby shop in long meadow MA in 1989. I was a young kid, had no idea what I needed and unfortunately the shop was happy to load me up and send me on my way. Obviously it was not a good first plane and I had no chance in hell of being successful. About the most I ever got to do with it was taxi around the high school football fields. Fortunately for me A member of Hamden County Radio Control club of South Hadley Ma found me and helped me get on the right track. So I built a PT40 (I did a horrible job but it flew) gutted the chipmunk and learned to fly. The chipmunk got put in the rafters. I started out in life and it and just it disappeared over time never to be flown.

Fast forward to December 2019. I was telling my wife about the plane I never flew and always wanted to. During the discussion I said it may be cool to find a Carl Goldberg Super Chipmunk Kit because well, I have a bit more experience now . How cool would it to be able to get a Chipmunk and fly it right. I also said they are getting harder and harder to find now that they were no longer in production. Well the little turd, she got with a buddy of mine and found one. I knew she was hunting but I thought she was unsuccessful. She gave it to me for a Christmas gift.

The kit was complete and in super shape. The kit it was Die Cut and I have some of the forms dating to 1989. I checked with the AMA...Continue Reading

Following on from the previous P-51 we have another gyro stabilised micro plane from Eachine/Volantex, this time the USAF F-22. Things are a little different this time with a direct drive pusher prop ( micro edf at this price point is a little too much to ask i think ) and a removal of the rudder in favour of a locked twin elevator ( the two servos control an elevator each but cannot be controlled independently FSSR )
