Here's a nice clean build I did for my friend Amadeo.
Its based on the Electrifly "Advance 25" which we re-named the "Adriana" for his wife.

It has a custom C/Fiber nose cap to hide the ugly "open nose" setup thanks to our mutual friend and resident composite expert "Flip", as well as some custom vinyl graphics...

I'm real happy with how the maiden turned out, only two clicks of trim...

Enjoy!...Continue Reading

Today was a great day of flying at Pompano Hill... I was there with my friend Amadeo and a full complement of planes. Here are some pics of the days festivities....

So I stripped off the monocoat to see how bad it really was and, well its not the worst damage I've had to repair, it sucks when its a "brand new" plane that was crushed during shipping... Either way, they kind of did me a favor by causing me to tear into her earlier than later.
The way I see it, I can only improve from here on out

I posted this here and I'm not trying to ruffle feathers, but I have been buying from Hobby King (HK) for about a year now and this Christmas gift issue is beyond me and I am asking for help and/or advise from my fellow aero modelers...

Long story short, I purchased a Balsa Neuport (800mm) as a gift for my son, who also flys...
I did the usual paypal transaction and waited patiently for the plane coming from the "USA Warehouse".
The Box arrived (Dec 23rd) and I knew we had an issue, so much so I grabbed my camera before I even grabbed the scissors, never a good sign

I opened the box and I discovered the fuselage was crushed during shipping... No Merry Christmas aparently....
I calmly wrote the Customer Service folks at HK and the chain of emails back and forth I am simply trying to ask for:
A) A replacement Fuselage or,
B) A credit for the purchase Price to buy a replacement fuse (if available) or,
C) A return Authorization form with a shipping label to return the kit and when received and replacement plane to replace it...

All HK wants to do is give me a "$5.00" credit for the damage?! I'm at my witts end and I need some help... Below is the email chain...

Here is a short entry, a video of the maiden flight... She was a bit under propped with the 12 x 6, but a 13 x 8 should wake her right up!

RC Hangar 9 Tribute 36 3D w/ Electric conversion (6 min 12 sec)

I picked up this Hangar 9 "Tribute 36" 3D ARF at the LHS for $30 closeout... Not to shabby...

It was designed for gas, so I upgraded her to electric
I got he layout from another guy here on RCGroups, "randynsaudi"... He posted some real helpful tips on the layout and power plant suggestions.
So, per his advise I came up with this layout...

Power .32 Outrunner
Plush 50A ESC
13 x 8 APC
(2) 4S 1300mAh 90C Nanotecs
(4) HiTec Digital MG/HS Sevos
JR RX w/ satellite
CG 4.5" LE
64oz. AUW (4 lbs. on the nose)

The local "Fun Fly" is this weekend, so I'll maiden her then... Should be fun...
