Met a few folks from Stevens AeroModel when I attended the WRAM Show in White Plains, NY.

Walked away with two of their kits and bought two more...

My Build of the SKYBUGGY (100) 19.5" Video and is a fun flyer! Gave this RTF to my friends son, who got me into the hobby 20 yrs ago!

My Build of the Swift (100) 21" Video of a really fun flyer!

My Build of the SkyBoy (600) 48" Another SA Success..... Flys and Floats without any Water!

My Build of the SKYBUGGY (300) 24" with Floats What, another SA Success.... Really a fun flyer! Best on a calm day and a little different with the floats so, setup a second model for your Trim settings.

My Build of the eHopper 33.5" Maiden flight went back to the bench, under powered.

My Build of the RingRat RC050 Maiden flight was a success, past on to my nephew.

My Build of the Adrenaline Rush

I decided to go with a proven power system so, I purchased the E-flite 480 Brushless Outrunner 1020Kv with a matching 40-Amp Lite Pro Switch-Mode BEC Brushless ESC and the APC 12x6E thin prop.

I'll install four HiTec HS-5065MG Digital Feather Servo as well as a set of Diamond 3" Lite Wheels and a Hanger 9 Tail Wheel Assembly.

This should all be enough to start the project when my kit arrives soon.

After hearing a bit of hipe regarding this innovated Innovator MD530 by Thunder Tiger. Like many, I thought it was pricey and a little reluctant because of the proprietary design. However; I recently came across a 'used" complete setup with two batteries, software/interface, extra blades and parts. The price was really great although the 3-1 needed servo motor repair as well as new landing gear. Looked really good however; appears to have had a head strick or two......

The new place is on schedule so, it looks like 6-8 months until move in so, this little place must get staged for sale. That means the big projects have to go to storage and must de-personalize the living space! No Swifts - ECO or flatouts allowed...

My Fairwind build has turned into a Home build...... Thread HERE...Continue Reading
