I have been designing a nitro push plane on my own on Turbo-cad. I have gotten pretty far i just need to sheet the wings and then just install and cover the hole thing.

I got a 17x4w and it is awesome. By watching it fly level you can't tell there is a huge increase in power. But there is and that is because the lower pitch of the prop slows it down and that is what i wanted. 3D plane with big control surface defections and high speeds=bad things.
But when you pull the plane up it acts just like it flying normal but vertical. The engine doesn't even sound like its working hard. If i want more altitude i just fly strait up .

But it is a pain in the but after i start it and i am tuning the needle or warming it up because it has so much static thrust. Aaaah all that sand in your face . Sunglasses' are a must .

We had a all electric guy at our field Crash a jet made from FanFoldFoam far at the other end of our field and only the pilot went to get it. By the time he was about half way there 1min walk. Black smoke was billowing from where the plane crashed. He wasn't walking any more. I grabbed my camera and documented the spectacle of 3 adults and me trying to put out a brush fire with nothing but dirt . By the time i got there with my camera the was no plane AT ALL! Not even melted goo, that fan fold burn like crazy because it is made from petroleum.

I have to say it looked like a very realistic crash the plane went down in a high Alpha stall smacks the ground and burn quick with lots of smoke.

I am sure glad that it didn't crash in a tree or unmowed field far away our we would of been .

From now on i am will always go and check out a crash no matter how far way.

Just incase .

This is what you call a crash and burn. ...Continue Reading

All right now i am starting to venture in to some bigger planes. This plane kick butt i love it and for only $150 you just can't beat that great hard wear.
I can fly for 30 minuets with a 1.20AX and stock tank.
I am getting unlimited vertical with a Master Airscrew 16x6.
Only one-forth throttle is required for cruising. Can't wait to get a APC 17x4W that should rock.

Here are a few pic of my 3D dazzler the color scheme is totally different now. I had to recover both wing + some after my GREAT DANE sat on it mid transit to the flying field that is 2 HOUR DRIVE . Imagine you little sister just spent your entire saving account so she could buy some barbies. THAT WAS HOW PI$$&D OFF I WAS.

I am not really sure how this is going to work but i will probably just end up typing my thoughts down. I just realized something that is all i have done is put my thought down. I am still doing it WTH! The H stands for Heck...
