I've been out of the hobby for a quite a while. My guess is 12 years. Life got busy, hectic even. I used to enjoy getting up for work a few hours early, stopping by a nearby park and tossing out my souped up (man was it souped up) Superfly from Superfly RC (http://www.superflyrc.com). It was the favorite of all my EPP foam builds. In fact I owned 3 of em because I enjoyed tickering with the nuances of the forgiving platform. You could do just about anything with it (within acceptable parameters) and it would fly. There's so much more I wanted to do with em but as I said, time constraints choked the hobby right out of me. But there was a part of me that had burnt out on it. Probably because I jumped into the hobby with both feet and way too fast.

Oh I've tried balsa builds, but once you build em you can't make to many mods of the airframe while finding out what does and doesn't work. For me that's 75% of the fun of things. But should one of the mods not work well, you lose some if not all control and kiss smack the ground and risk abandoning all hopes of reasonable repairs. Plus balsa repairs can be time consuming. I know this from experience too.

I've toyed with a couple EPO planes, most of which are pre-built and all you do at most is slap in your own electronics and get airborne. While EPO foam is pretty strong, it's not near as forgiving as EPP. If you wreck one badly repairs are often impossible due to the fact that it shatters more than tears. EPP foam however...Continue Reading

I just finished refurbing this old 84" Powerhouse old timer that I got as an "attic rescue" project on a trade. It didn't look like it had ever been flown, but I didn't care much for the color scheme, so I stripped it down to the bare wood, went through the entire structure looking for any damage or failed glue joints, made a bolt-down wing retention, and covered it with Hobby King film. All-up weight is 5lbs 10oz, with a Magnum XL52 RFS four-stroke engine in the nose. The CG came out spot-on, and it flies as smooth as butter on hot toast. The flare goes on forever on landing, and I'm sure that on a good day the Powerhouse will thermal like a glider. Fun toy!

Hi everyone, thought I'd make a few blog entries to show my current RC collection: one for land vehicles 1/10 and larger, one for land vehicles smaller than 1/10, one for boats, and one for flying RCs.

Feel free to comment or ask questions!

First up is LAND VEHICLES: Company name, vehicle model, where I bought it from, and anything interesting about it. Trying to do most recent to oldest, but may get slightly out of order

Thunder Tiger MT4 G3: Purchased from a member here on RCG. 4x4 4s 1/8 truck...it is huge and powerful. With the rainy weather I've had lately I haven't been able to run it, but the tire marks in the basement attest to the power

HPI Bullet Flux ST: Traded with a member here on RCG for it. 1/10 scale 3s capable 4x4 stadium truck. On the smaller for side for 1/10, but very fast and tough. It jumps very well!

ECX Ruckus: purchased from a member here on RCG. 1/10 2wd brushed monster truck. Currently have it set up for running on sand at the lake house. Haven't been able to test it on sand yet, but should be fun.

ExceedRC Maxstone: 1/5 (yes, 1/5 scale!) rock crawler. Purchased used on eBay. 4x4, MOA (motor on axle, so 2 brushed motors), runs on a 2s lipo and gets close to a hour runtime. Literally climbs up my front porch stairs! I haven't been able to use this crawler to its full extent with the weather/work/school, but I have big plans for it. Going to add rear steer, better servos, lights, etc. Stay tuned for this one.

Traxxas Stampede 2wd:...Continue Reading

All -

Scanned from my original issue of the May 1940 Flying Aces it's the Bambino Bipe - an interesting rubber powered biplane....

It looks like it would be a good flyer....

Enjoy,

Best regards,

This is my official E-flite Pitts S-1S RC Biplane Second Flight. I flew this one with my 3S Scorpion 1800 Lipo after I knocked the aileron dual-rates down to 58%, down from 70% and trimmed it out.

Talk about a waste of time. They can be humorous at times, maddening at others, and then down right pathetic. I have been a member of RCGroups since 2006. In the last few years this place has gone down the tubes big time. Now perhaps it isn't just this forum, others may and probably do suffer the same thing. You try to start a thread asking a question, just hoping for a valid answer or two. What you get is as follows:

1. Someone chiming in saying, "I don't know about this specific thing thing, but I heard blah, blah blah." So why in the hell are you even responding then?

2. A good solid answer, but then 5 other people have to try to answer the question again even though a good one was provided. Doesn't anyone read the posts and ascertain that a valid answer was provided? If so, then why do you feel it necessary to answer again? Feeling left out?

3. Immediate or eventual thread derailed by idiots changing the topic to something completely unrelated to the original question. Why do you feel the need to do this? Aren't there other forum sections where you can chit chat? Go there.....

4. Someone posts something personal about an ailing family member. Really? Looking for moral support? Just feeling needy and helpless? A shoulder to cry on? Someone to feel sorry for you? Take it somewhere else. this is supposed to be a HAPPY and FUN place.

This place is pretty much just a waste of time anymore.

I prefer the Swiss airforce "Patrouille Suisse" one because of better visibility.

Here is a useful link to the specs on the original one :

It just feels like Christmas, so......

After a LONG drawn out yes/no battle over the Freewing F-14 Tomcat I gave in and got one.
I had a valid reason!! It looks great! Oh and another one.... it is BIG. Bigger than anything else I have. And.... it has scale swept wing ability too!
So many good reason..... hehe
Mind you I was also tossing up over the Freewing A-10 Warthog 1700mm, and that only JUST lost out the battle with the F-14. Yet I might get that also later.... (For Xmas??) - but will have to sell my LX 1550mm A-10 first to be fair.

I think the L-39 Albatros 80mm was the "primer" for these, as being 80mm also means it uses the same batteries as these will - these will just use TWO of those each flight. So getting the 'cheaper' single 80mm FIRST meant.......
