Well after a patient three month build...my OV-10 project is done....It came from Nitro Models as a darned ugly yellow plane and it needed to be changed..... I always wanted to paint one in Military gray...Used Vietnam markings...(I liked the horse shoes) Scale graphics by Vikie at Get-Stencils.com...Fine work too---Thanks Vikie...Twin Turnigy 3536/910 KV out-runners with matching Phoenix 35's...Tower Pro MG servos on aileron and rudder..HS 81 on elevator. 6 total servos. Set up for twin 2100ma 3S packs and came in lighter than specs. Not gonna fly her....she is heading to PORCIA83 for her maiden.............

Just finished my Shrike...Can't take credit for the full build but about 45% of her--- is my work....Picked up with a little distress and brought her back to life..Full Balsa plane total weight 3 lbs-14 oz RTF....Twin 1080 KV swinging 9 x 6 props with a TP 3300 G6 65c battery...Many thanks to John Valentine at Top Notch Products Co. for technical assistance too......

initial preflight tests show she will leave my hands straight up during full throttle....given the wing config...this baby should haul the mail for sure...

Well Sports Fans....Picked these up in hanger rash condition....They just needed some love-paint and new fittings. I'm just a nut for these jets...they fly so smooth and slow down nice for landings. Both have new decals as well.

The Navy T-33 runs a silver sapac motor on 4S...Had one of these before and Porcia got her from me....I know when he sees these he is gonna be Peed off......CC-60 with matching CC BEC....Good flyer and Im gonna keep this one since my Pop flew this paint scheme in the Navy.

The F-80 has Alaska Air Guard (I theeenk) markings...Running a Mega 16/15/2Freewing 80 amp ESC on 4S...Needs a BEC..Sweet markings and scale paint to my best ability.

Just finished my 299th and 300th flight on my Cermark Banchee. I have had this plane since 2005 with a couple of minor mishaps so you could say I baby her nowadays. Added wheel pants a few years ago for looks....She has a
Mega 22/30/3 swinging a 15 x 8 prop on 4400 4S packs...Average flight time without three d'ing is about 18 minutes in Sport mode. That is about 90 hours of flight time on this airframe .

Just completed a long on and off four month build...I made many modifications to this plane to make it better and stronger. Entire wings are sheeted with balsa. CF Spar added to wing and motor mount section. Fuse painted rather than covered...better lines. Runs on a PJS 1200 with a 10 x 6 on 3S 2100 TP lipo...came in about 5 oz lighter than fuel version...

Seven months of on and off building....Thanks to Larry aka- Speed-E-flyer for the inspiration to complete this plane...No instructions but all custom throughout....Originally for fixed gear, I fitted with electric retracts. Running on Twin Turnigy 3020/12's with a TP 3800 3S 45C batt with Twin P-35's spinning 10 x 7's. White automotive Laquer with custom trim work. Even added the de-ice boots . Have a few short list items to complete, weight balance, some taxing up and down the street etc as well as some warmer weather and I will take her to the sky.

Well guys, I'm about 99% done with this plane....Just tested motor and taxied up and down the street....This is my third Tigra build, My second in the hanger and the other one belongs to my good friend Speed-E-Flyer. Motor is a Himaxx Contra set-up, custom made firewall with Twin Phoenix 45's and a Turnigy 5000 ma 3S 45C battery. Thrust to weight ratio is a lot better than 2-1 so she should really haul arse.

Props produce very cool sound and hope to maiden tomorrow if winds die down. I just have to add some graphics, pin stripes, and a little tuning and she is ready to fly !

Thanks to Speed-E-Flyer.....

I just finished a complete face lift for my new F-80.....New fan running on 4S and painted aluminum in fairly accurate USAF markings (new decals, more real than the provided ones from Kyosho)....Remainder of jet was painted first with latex based primer then aircraft alum.

Thanks again Larry !!!!!
