I just finished building another Twin Otter for my friend Rolo. Since his crashed last fall (due to a loose receiver battery plug) he decided he just had to have another one. So here is the new one.

My friend Arman (pilot28) got a new Panasonic HD video camera for Christmas and has been making good use of it.

This is a video of Rolo flying his E-Flite T-34

E-flite T-34 Mentor Touch And Goes! (2 min 41 sec)

This is the maiden flight of Rolo's Great Planes 1/4 scale Pitts 12S that has been converted to E power with a Rimfire 50cc motor. As you will see in the video we still have to work the bugs out of it.
