Recently, in order to make rational use of the Yangtze River coastline and strengthen the maintenance of the Yangtze River ecology and river safety, the Zhenjiang Municipal Government urgently needs high-resolution orthophotos within 500 meters of the Yangtze River, and superimposes it as an image base map and water conservancy thematic information... The project area starts from Jurong City Avenue in the west and west to Xilaiqiao Town in Yangzhong City. The ground resolution requirement is 8 cm.

A drone with a wingspan of 2.5 meters rises slowly on the beach on the banks of the Yangtze River. This is a vertical takeoff and landing drone built for aerial surveying - MMC‘s’GRIFLION M8. This drone combines the advantages of multiple rotors and fixed wings: flexible take-off and landing, limited by the environment; fast flight speed, long battery life, can be equipped with high-definition cameras; with RTK+PPK system, one button At the same time of accurate take-off and landing, it meets the requirements of high-precision drawing.

Before taking off, the flying hand has uploaded the carefully planned route to the drone. According to the 8 cm resolution requested by the customer, the aerial overlap ratio is set to 75% of the heading, 70% of the sideways, and a total of 41 flying frames. After about an hour, thanks to the RTK centimeter positioning, the plane finally landed at the takeoff point. After a simple equipment inspection and disassembly work, the flying hand drove to the next takeoff point.

During the flight operation of the drone, there are often 6-7 winds and heavy rains. The Corbett mapping team completed the 400-square-kilometer flight in just 15 days, acquiring more than 21,000 high-quality drone images with an image resolution of 42 million pixels. Finally, the staff imported the data into the Pix4Dmapper for processing, and stitched all the scattered drone data into a continuous, standardized, measurable image map. It provides reliable information for the government to fully understand the development and utilization of the Yangtze River coastline.

House of Balsa Me-109. I built it in 1974, or maybe 1975. It had a Cox TD .049 engine. The radio was an Aero Sport from Hobby Shack. The servos were standard size, the receiver battery was a 4-cell NiCd pack. The plane was heavy. Hand launching it, I would give a mighty heave while the TD was screaming. It would dip, almost smack the ground, and slowly gain flying speed. Once it was flying, it hauled like a raped ape.

Being without a throttle, you just flew till it ran out of fuel. And then hoped you made it back to the runway. The last time I flew it, it did not make it back to the runway. It landed off in the dirt field. But since it had rained recently, it was soft dirt. So no damage happened. I put the plane away and moved onto another model as I was just starting in RC and was excited about getting new planes.

I kept this HoB Me-109 with me for decades, Wherever I moved too, it came along. In 1996 I moved into my current house. I have a metal storage shed out back. The Me-109 was stored in this shed along with a couple of other models from my early RC days. In 2005 (hard to believe 14 years ago already!) I was playing with the idea of getting it into flying shape again. Unfortunately, it had become so brittle that after taking these photos, it crumbled when I tried to take it apart. So I saved the pilot bust and the engine and scrapped the airframe.

I restored the engine a few years ago, and it is ready to be used again if the opportunity ever arises.

My long ago Douglas Aircraft Silhouette is about to fly again. Previously I had attempted to recreate the Silhouette fuselage and tail surfaces by memory and was fairly close in dimensions with the fuselage, the tail surfaces not so much, that plane I called the Silhouwhat. That plane crashed due to a radio receiver range issue, fairly certain about that. Since then I was able to obtained a set of plans for the Silhouette and started anew.

All the paint was from Lowe's. Test samples and was brushed on. she's not a Beauty queen but works for me.
I built the takeoff trolley after I realized I was not going to hand lunch this jet with a 13X6 prop spinning right behind my hand.
The motor is a 45 rim-fire. I run a 6 cell 5000 pack. The jet is very stable and has no stabilizer unit on board.
I can drop 4 bomb and a fuel tank during the flight.
Yes, I have to get read of all my bombs and drop tank to land......LOL (no landing gear)
