I designed this on Thurs evening, based on some 2.6" tubing I had and a rounded nose cone that was pretty close to profile for a vulcan, wing is 32" span, 9mm depron, tail is 6mm depron as is the cockpit and motor details. I trimmed the rear of the tube to represent the stinger on the Vulcan, of course you can't really get the shape right without doing a builtup fuse and wing with the massive thick root, but I think it looks the part close enough. Length is 28", weight ready to fly wtih 24mm composite rocket motor is 10.2 oz, wing loading on glide is 5 oz/sq foot, so it's a floater.

A customer asked if I could modify my Starship kit to have twin warp pods instead of one, it added an ounce to the overall weight, but it still flies nice and does look a bit cooler....

Soooooo you know what? This Geelang is very much a positive surprice to me  

Obviously having bought it I did hope it would perform decently.. 
Then.. after I ordered it I saw a review of that Caddx Loris camera..
OEPS :@ 

I'm happy with it though.. fun flier and the recordings are really nice (IMHO)

Happymodel Mobula6 HD unboxing + test (2 min 1 sec)

Here is another happy(model) Mobula 6 HD owner. Overall I was surprised by the HD footage I received from the onboard DVR. IMO there are only 2 major shortcomings: battery life is very short (below 2min on Gaoneng 350mAh) and some fail safes with Frsky D16.

Well, at the risk of being a little OT in my own blog, I'm putting up my latest foamy project. This time a full-sized 27 pound foam fishing boat!

I haven't made a regular thread for it here, because, well, it's not a model, and it isn't RC controlled. I actually row it!

But I think it should be of interest anyway, because many of the things I've been doing in models played a part in my design of the boat. Especially building it almost entirely using an old hacksaw blade! (I did a whole series of RCGroup build threads here called "Hacksaw Specials").

I did do a YouTube video of building the boat, and it will, I hope be enjoyable and useful to fellow RC flyguys 'n gals even if you hate water!

Hey, some giant models are bigger and heavier than my boat! And I did name it Flier.

Here is the PDF containing decals for the Carl Goldberg Electra. I have sized them for a sheet of paper 8.5" X 11" landscape.
At the top is my re-creation using PowerPoint, so that they match, but are crisper than the decal sheet that I found online. The Electra used the Countdown font, available free for downloading online. To match the decals, I made a JPG and "narrowed" it L-R about 1/2" to match .

You can print these out on Printable Vinyl. Silhouette has packs with 8 sheets currently at an Office Supply shop.
Print using your printer's highest quality print setting. Do not touch the vinyl sheet after printing for at least one hour.
Coat with a gloss clear lacquer spray. I used Rust-Oleum's rattle can spray on the sheet. Spray on one quick covering, then a second coat in five minutes.
Cut apart with scissors, peel off the backing and place on the completed plane.

Latest addition to my fleet.
Great small/ medium sized aerobatic plane.
Pros:
Great design that flys well
Good factory hardware

Cons:
Battery bay is no good, its in an awkward position and hard to secure in place.
Extra weight in nose needed to balance the plane.
Wheels suited to road surface. Will not travel on grass unless pitch & putt like surface!

My Ringmaster liked my new stooge so much that it took one of it's cushions for a ride.

No issues other than I was afraid to pull any maneuvers for fear of flinging the foam tube out in the rain-soaked soybeans, and not seeing where it landed. I was NOT in a mood to go searching out there.

So, I just flew out it's 12-minute+ fuel supply---circle---after circle---after circle---think there's a spot worn smooth in the asphalt...

Finally, all the Sig 10% burned up and the Ringer glided to a landing, with it's bit of ballast rolling up behind it.

I'm not a Castle guy, but I wanted braking for my F3A plane and a friend told me Castle has that capability in their ESCs. So I tried one out and thought I'd give a software tour of the programmer and log graphing software:

Just out tooling around with my little Skylark after the Leopard 2835 1350Kv motor upgrade. This is a very good little plane and I still enjoy flying it:
