Just started my "Thru the Winter" Build thread featuring my recently acquired "Precedent Quarter Scale Stampe SV4B" kit.

Having reacquainted myself with the poor die cutting and a "locust swarm" of small parts to be custom fitted. (it's my second build of this kit) it's safe to say I won't be doing the maiden flight this year.

I added a few pics of my Sig 1/4 scale clipped wing cub here too.

A few of my lunatic ... er... loyal fans have requested that I put a few links here for the *good* threads I've started. So hard to pick them out of the weed bed of bad threads.
Most have a link to youtube for the maiden flights.
The Youtubes that have no threads, I will attempt to put links here later.

My latest build is Balsa USA's Taube 90.

We upgraded the Cub to lipos and made more vids with an obvious power increase. Look at my avatar, Four years later.
