So I'll be honest, I was feeling very "blah" recently. Felt like I had a bunch of different things (some even RC related) that made me feel that way. I can honestly say thanks to some RC folks it allowed me to shift my focus and get me out of my "blah" state.

So decided to go for a Dexter themed blood spatter type paint job on the foamboard FT Bloody Baron. I put little dabs of paint on the prop and fired her up to see if that would fling the paint onto the plane. I also had a backup plan where I would put paint on a brush and flick that at the plane. The end result came out pretty cool. Check it out!

Finally ventured out to give the profile plane a try. It flew for a few seconds but came down shortly. The results don't surprise me as this was a design I sort of modified to fit foamboard. I believe the problem was getting the CG/balance right. It crumpled the nose up, so I'll have to recut the fuselage. Luckily that's only just a single sheet of foamboard. Here's video of the event:

An update to the FT Edge build process. The fuse is starting to take shape now! I also talk about the different glue I am using...Titebond. Plus sharing any other little tips, tricks, and issues that I have encountered so far.
