Couple pictures of what I have been up to this weekend! AT-6 has started got my short kit and all 4 sheets of plans for it. Last weekend I built a 4'x8' table cause I knew I was gonna be needing it for this build..

What you see in the pictures is just me messing around getting a feel for all the parts and plans. Nothing has been glued yet waiting for all my balsa sticks to arrive and I will begin the fuselage!

Conversation: Got everything mounted and its ready for its maiden! Looks like alot of fun!

Rambler: Got it from world models in livermore this was on there show table at the AMA convention so they just wanted it out of there office so I got it for $30 and got it built tonight just gotta install servos and fly!

Today's flights: Taught a guy locally how to fly hes got a dx6i and a park zone radian. I maiden-ed and trimmed it. 5min on buddy box. And he was off on his own I guarantee if he hadn't flown on a simulator before today he would still be on a buddy box!

I flew my radian and my squirt 700..

AT-6... Still Undecided on the wings weather they should be built up or foam core kind of leaning toward built up. Its more work but it will be worth it more. What do you think?

P-51... Going smooth going to set up

Hs-81 servos
E-flight 30amp esc
Himaxx motor (9-10inch APC prop)
1500mah 3s lipo

Covering is going good as well first time fully using mono coat always have used cheap stuff but now I can afford it a little better!!!Alot easier to work with and the p-51 should be finished in another week because ive gotten into it and cant stop!!
