This is my scratch built 1984 90ft series Broward Yacht in 1/24th scale. It was built from borrowed full size blueprints-Its a fiberglass molded hull (from my scaled down drawings,plug and mold) with a plywood cabin. Its many features include:
1. Working radar antennas(accomplished thru the use of geared micro motor,VCR belts and a flex shaft).
2. Working Hot Tub-fills when activated and bubbles(will not overflow)and auto drains when the pump shuts off.
3. Lighted nav screens-Radar,sonar, MFD , and course plotter
4. RC sound system (from SD card or bluetooth)
5.Underwater "Yacht Lights"
6. LED nav ,entrance way, cabin windows (with mini blinds), aft galley, and bar lights
7. Scratch built 13ft Boston Whaler and scratch built 40 hp Johnson motor
8. Working search light-the light is controlled to sweep with the "aileron stick"only when the lights are selected on(accomplished with a micro 5v relay)
9. All placards and decals were scratch done as was the anchor, cleats, vertical windlass, Horns, liquor on the bar, deck chairs, bar stools, canister life rafts, rudders, shafts, struts, and cappuccino maker (got to have a cappuccino maker!)
10. Working bilge pump-a chamber with a calibrated "leak" fills and a water sensor (scratch designed and built) turns on the pump,pumps out port and starboard and latches on until another contact is cleared(preventing fast cycling)-giving the boat a lived in look when sitting static about once every...Continue Reading

There is something inheirently wrong with the fact that I have no less than 9 planes, 8 quads and 6 helis that I haven’t flown in the past 2 years. Add to that the 5 action cameras, nine receivers, seven FPV cameras, six fc’s and eight vtx’ s , all still in their packages, that were needed for very important builds, that haven’t even been started…anyway, the problem isn’t my RC obsession as my wife would claim,

it’s my job…it gets in the way of my flying, my builds, and my bench testing, everything. If I didn’t need the money to support this obssesion, I’d have quit my job a long time ago…

I ran into a guy the other day who flies for Gaul…that’s his JOB!! He travels all over and spends all of his time flying…I told my buddies at the flying field how cool that would be, and that I was considering soliciting to the big manufacturer’s my particular skillset,

building…and they all agreed that I can build with the best of them.

I can build quads. Helis, planes, buggies…all of them faster than anyone I know, I can even build them in my sleep… At any given time you will find at least 6 to 10 builds on my shop going on simultaneously…some that I haven’t even decided what they are going to be yet…

Anyway, if any big manufacturer’s out there are reading this, I’ll be checking my “in” box daily for job offers. be sure to include the salary, liberal vacation schedule and number of free quads, planes and helis a month you plan to supply me with, (I’ll be needing batteries for those as well) and I will get back to the one with the best offer quickly.

Please check out my latest edit from my tiny whoop with recently changing to the Betafpv Beta65s frame and 7x16mm motors kit it is a whole new beast and its safe to say I'm not going back to the standard 6x15mm. If you race, the required motor size is 6x15mm in almost all tiny whoop racing leagues I believe but I do not race so keep that in mind. The torque difference is very noticeable and has the ability to catch itself much better after flips/rolls, I wouldnt say the top end speed is that much different though from a 6x15mm setup. Please check out my latest edit of it here:

7x16mm Tiny Whoop Fun (3 min 7 sec)


-The full setup is in the description of the video, minus the props I did use the king kong 3 blade props which are the exact same prop as far as I can tell that comes with the kit.

Day 5 & 6. Chemo side effects include jitters, nausea, and back pain.
Today day 6 is the most noticeable.
Got a get well card in the mail from a friend I have yet to shake hands with!
Thanks to John Higgins!
Hopefully tomorrow will be easier.

The Gemfan 2540 props are quieter, better balanced and only slightly less powerful that the stock king kong 2840 propellersbut they are MUCH more efficient = longer flight times. Lastly they are inexpensive - $1.20 - $2.00 per set depending on where you get them. Until something better comes along I will not be using any other props.

Yep Les Amis,

J'ai bien galéré mais ... OUF, ça vole, et plutôt bien !!! Je vous présente aujourd'hui le test du STAR POWER 130. Comme je vous l'explique dans la vidéo, cet engin à été pour moi un petit défi. En effet, quand j'ai ouvert l'emballage, que ne fut pas ma surprise de découvrir mouuulte pièces, bien rangées dans des tas de petits sachets différents ! J'ai cherché une notice ou un plan pour le montage ou les connexions, en vain ! Donc après quelques recherches sur Youtube et autres, j'ai enfin pu assembler et mettre en marche ce petit 130 (j'ai mis les liens qui m'ont aidés au dessus). Bref, le résultat est là, libre à vous de tenter l'aventure DIY, perso, c'est vrai que j'ai bien galéré, mais qu'elle satisfaction au premier décollage !!!

Well guys...I'm happy to report that a crazy idea started by myself and my dear friend Tony Naccarato to gather at least 100 1/2A powered control line planes was...as the kids would say....EPIC!!! It was the most amazing day I've personally experienced in over 40 years dabbling in control line model aviation.

We had 127 1/2A control line models gathered and a perfect flying day. I would like to thank the Valley Circle Burners and the Knights of the Round Circle for coming out to celebrate 1/2A model aviation. Each of you made this happen and I'm forever grateful.

Looking for to the 2nd Annual Gathering.

Best,
