Not sure if anyone on here follows the Crashcast and it's Host's... One of the Host's is Laine Stahr or LMopar69. He has designed a plane called the "Cuda" and is currently setting up to kit them in balsa in two different wingspans. I saw the pre production foam plane photos and fell in Love. To purchase one was not in my budget but to build one well that was. It is built using Dollar Tree Foamboard and assembled in the Flite Test Style. It has a 40 inch wingspan and for the most part it is done. I need to do the Elevons and the electrics still and then figure out the CG. Hope you Guys and Gals like it! Give Laines Planes a "Like" on Facebook for me...


"Cuda wanna Bee" #3 (6 min 10 sec)

A new motor for the Cuda Wanna Bee... The Turnigy 3648-1450 putting out 1600 watts turning a 7x5 APC prop. Should make this bird really go!

I have been playing with the DX6 again... My PBY Catalina really needed the differential thrust to assist during water taxi so after searching the internet and just trying different mixes I finally found out how to set it up. The photos show the Mix 1, 2, and 3 setups and the video shows it working... Mudman1959
