Got this real cheap at the hobby show last winter and she's ready to rock... but the maiden will have to wait until next week.

Here is my funjet.

The build was very easy and straight forward.

Since a few other guys at the field have this plane i ditched the stock stickers and contacted and asked them to make it look like a Thunderbird. I think they did an awesome job!

I used the following to components to power it:
HXT 2835 (380S) 2700kv Brushless Inrunner
3S 2200mA
6x4 Prop

It moves at a nice speed and can slow down really nice.

Picked up this plane off e-bay for cheap

I plan to power it with an AXI 4130/16, 80A ESC, and 6S.

I'll post more once the plane is good to go....Continue Reading

I've been working on her since Christmas and i really hope to have her flying before the end of this season. (it's short up here in Canada)

I plan on using a:

AXI 4130/16
6 cell battery

So far it's been a fun build and as you can tell I've been taking my time.
Enjoy the pictures and I'll update this as the build progresses.

I picked up the PZ Spitfire some time ago and last year decided it was time for an upgrade.

So i tossed the stock motor, ESC, and receiver and replaced it with a:

E-Flite 480
3S 2100mAh
and 10x7 prop

Rest in peace old girl (had to retire her after a bad crash)

Built this little guy over the winter and still haven't worked out all the bugs (just need to find some time to work on it)

I also picked up a HL F-16 the 70mm one.

Very easy to build and hope to fly it soon. Waiting for parts from HL.

Let's get this started.

Over the winter i built and converted a CG Eagle 2. This was my first "large" plane and was fun to build.

She's can fly easily on a 1/4 throttle using the below set-up:
5S1P 4900mAh
11x5.5 prop
Turnigy 35-48-B 900kv

Sorry i don't have any build photos but i promise i will take some of my TF P-40 build.
