Thought I would do a blog on building a Astro Hog. I'm still a beginner builder, this is the fourth balsa plane I've built. Several years back I built a Micro Telemaster, which is a good plane for a first build. Since I have built two Sig Seniors, one from a kit and one a scratch rebuild for one of my flying buddies. I don't consider myself a great builder by no means, but I do understand the process and can read the manuals/prints well. I've also reviewed a lot of builds and picked up quite a few tips along the way! Thanks to all the builders out there who post there builds and tips!...Continue Reading

With days growing shorter need to add some lights to extend flying times.

This will be a new build log of flying wings. Me (Lane) Gabe221 (Gabe) & ms3164 (Mike) hopefully by the end of next week we will be starting to build a couple of assassin and a Titan wing. Will have plenty of pictures and good information available to help others with there builds. Anyone wishing to add comments and info feel free to do so, all comments welcome. Can't wait to get started on the build, thanks to Gabe who got me interested in wings I'm having a blast with my popwings. Stay tuned updates to follow.

Just received a new 900mm popwing today. Already have a mini popwing which I really enjoy flying. The new one is a ARF model, going to add lights to help with orientation. Will keep a photo record of the build. Here's a few pics of the unboxing.

Been flying the UMX Radian for a few weeks now, loads of fun. Very relaxing flying. Really enjoy this type flying. Ordered the full size Radian today hope it gets here before the 4th. Not sure how much room it has inside, would like to install telemetry on it including altimeter. More to follow soon!

Just got my new Sport Cub today, it will share space with my Super Cub and Fun Cub. Thought I'd keep a phote journel of its build and flights. Didn't get home until 6:30 so about all I done was unbox and inspect everthing. It shows the usual quality asociated with the Parkzone products. All the parts are damage free, the fit and finish seem excellent. Will probable put on a couple coats of minwax Polycrylic to help protect the plane. Already made one modification, see pics, and will probably do a few more. My buddy Gabe sent me a parkzone DSV130 digital servo so I will be setting flaps up. Really enjoy the nice slow flying at times. Thanks for reading I will update as I progress in the Sport Cub adventure. Lane

Starting the build on NB #2, 14", learned a lot from the first build. This time I'm going to remove the paper to save weight and cover with colored packing tape for strength. I hope to be able to fly this one in a small area around the house. Check out the pics. all comments welcome. Lane

Been watching Beaves and everybody else's nut balls. I need a new "yard flier" the Night Vapor's fun but can only do so much. I've read thru a lot of the build threads, watched you tube vids so now I'm in the process of building my first nut ball. This one I'm going to call " ugly , because thats exactly what it is. This one is being built with the paper on and packing tape added for strength. Here's a few pics. Thanks Lane

Always enjoyed working with wood and building things. Been wanting to do a balsa build for a year or so. Bought a Micro Telemaster kit from Hobby Express received the kit today. Looking thru the instructions I don't think this is be too difficult a build. Not going to get in any hurry, figure a couple weeks to build. All and any tips and advise welcome, like I said first build of this type would like to know ideas about what motor would be best etc. Plan on posting pictures and comments as the build progresses . Thanks Lane

Been building a Fun Cub for a couple months now. Haven't been in any hurry weather here is still to wet, windy & cold most of time. Almost ready to finish the final assy. Have all the electronics installed and bound to my new DX9. That is one awesome TX. To me it is actually easier to program than my DX6I. Here's some pictures of the build in progress.
