**I must have posted this out of order as My Favorite Trainer Planes Video has already been posted ;-)
I just have so much fun flying this Plane ;-)
It is one my favorite Micro Planes to fly and I just can't say enough good things about it.
This is one of those Planes where the amount of fun you'll have greatly outweighs the cost.

The detailed interior/ exterior with a 1:8 scale to the actual car has caught enthusiasts’ attention.

Hey guys, just a quick note to say that if you're tired of trying to fit the stock canopy on your Blade 150S, consider using a 180cfx canopy. The 180cfx canopy goes right on without any modifications needed. As an added benefit, the orange color is a lot easier to see against the treeline!

Blade 150S with a 180cfx canopy (0 min 42 sec)


After pulling the trigger on two brand new 180cfx canopies, I was very happy to discover that the orange canopies fit easily without requiring any modification to the canopy holes. So, from now on I'll be using orange 180cfx canopies and reserving the stock 150S canopies just for a backup.

Over the last three months of this pandemic, I've been converting electric foam airframes to 1/2A glow power, and having so much fun!

Yes...Old School Rules!

Here's the current 1/2A / Glow powered fleet:

- GWS C-47 with Cox .049 Sure Start engines
- FMS Alpha Jet chuck glider converted to R/C and powered by a Cox .049 Sure Start engine
- GWS T-6 Texan with Cox .09 R/C engine
- FlyFly P-40 with Cox .020TD engine
- SD Models Condor with Cox .049 Medallion R/C engine.

Hope everyone is well!

All the best,
Tony

A little work here and there and things start to come together .

A) Laser cut parts are really well cut . Half the time the parts almost fall out of the sheet of balsa .
B) Looks to be well designed , things are going together relatively straight ( A bonus )

On the fuse I used mostly medium Cyno , on the wing I used both thin and medium . Want joins to dry / bond quickly ? Use thin . Where you want more gap filling , use medium . Thick cyno ? , I have some but have not felt the need to use it .

Hopefully on the morrow I will complete gluing the wing .
Then I can sand and cover the R03 .
