No, I didn't build this balsa plane from scratch. It's an ARF. So sue me.

Yes, it's electric not nitro. So sue me.

No, it's not Eflite/Axi/Hacker. It uses Hobbywing/SunnySky parts. So sue me.

It flies great. That's all that matters.

Just an archive of my planes over the years. Should I lose the pictures elsewhere. Not all shown, but most included.

I will say, my favorite foam planes, after years of flying are the 1.5m Timber and the PZ P-47....Continue Reading

Highly recommend this museum. If you love planes, you'll love this place. They have dozens more famous warbirds than the ones pictured below.

Gorgeous P-40N. This new Durafly foam technique looks amazing. You can't tell it's foam it looks so smooth. Runs on 4s 2200mah. Plenty fast. High wingloading but it looks fantastic in the air.

I built it over the summer of 2015. I've always liked the T-65B X-Wing so I decided to build one. 5 minute flight times on a 3700mah 3S lipo. Weighs 2kgs and has a 2 feet wingspan. Wings reinforced with carbon fiber and bolts.

-11x4.5 props
-20amp opto ESCs with 5amp SBEC
-speed reduced 6.8g digital servo for retracts
-750mah 1s lipo for LED lighting
-61g 900rpm/v outrunner
-a lot of dampening and isolating material for all the internal wiring
-Testors model paint for weathering effect

Sadly, I crashed my 3DHS Edge last week. Since it was my first 3DHS plane and it gave me over 2 years of fun, I thought it deserved a little more respect than just a toss in the bin.



Flys like on rails.
