The autumn has hit Scandinavia with full effect, getting dark, windy, rainy and cold. Bad news for flying. Nevertheless, here's some pics from the late summer & early autumn.

I started this hobby during summer 2013. I must say that 2014 has been really rewarding for me from learning perspective. Both in pure piloting skill as also in building & electronics. Getting hang of 3D slowly, too...

What has been going on lately:
  • Got my 51" Slick finally ready. It flies great, can't wait to get it flying again
  • Started building Air Hogs Titan RC conversion, aiming to build it as a trainer for my nephew
  • Have been practicing a little on 450 size heli that I got second hand

Continued from part 1 and part 2. Finally getting to trainers, these planes are mostly used together with my friends and my son.

Trusty Yak is ready to train my friends whenever there isn't too much wind. It has served really well and has proved to be durable plane. It just keeps flying... Should fit it with Orange 3-axis stabilizer RX to see how much gyros will tame the plane in gusty conditions.
See my review or see Yak-12 thread @ RCGroups .
