Attempting a complete from scratch build with only using some old balsa planes as a reference. Part of an FT Forum challenge to transform an old classic plane from balsa plans into foamboard. I picked the Travel Air Mystery Ship. Here is the progress on the wing...

Finally, an official filmed flight of the FT Edge! Since I am not quite to being a 3D pilot yet, I toned the controls way down to make it a nice sport flying plane. Something I highly recommend for beginners.

Here's the maiden flight and crash of the Shrubsmacker...a STOL FT Style plane similar to the larger FT Bushwacker. This plane is actually a Flitetest community design by Grifflyer.

I had forgotten to put the plane back in low rates once I was airborne and overcontrolled it causing it to nose dive. Repairs were pretty minor believe it or not.

Local small airport was pretty active around the Memorial Day weekend, so my father-in-law and I decided to drop by and see what was going on. The guys there were really cool, let us talk to them about flight, military stuff, and even take pictures and video. Enjoy!

Here I am showcasing the Shrubsmacker, a miniature version of Flitetest's Bushwacker. While built using foamboard, this is not a Flitetest foamboard design. It is actually a design by Flitetest community member Grifflyer. The plane also puts you in the mind of the Eflite Timber. The plane can be built with a standard 4 channel setup OR you can add optional flaps.
