I sold the Habu32 and got a Habu 2 , I hope it will decrease the pucker factor of flying a jet since the investment is less and repairs will be less trouble,Going to put a HK Mercury All Alloy 64mm fan in it as I want to fly the fan in something and it fits perfectly.I know the Habu 2 says it is a 70 mm fan but the Mercury is the same size and fits perfectly.I will start with a 4 cell pack and then maybe a 5 cell pack with limited full throttle runs.
Work is slow as my oxygen levels vary alot making it hard to focus for long times ,but, I have to stay busy to keep going forward. Normal people stay at 98-99% O2 where I jump from 75 - 95 %Really scary..........special breathing is required to get out of "trouble" and it takes time to get back to work on the jet build after a attack.
My spelling is bad but I try!
Latter,Thanks for following along.

Got rid of all but the HotenX ,to fly, and this one, to build, it's cool, Three motors with a motor tilt mechanisem at the tail motor , carbon fiber "puzzel" pieces and 530 Kv Multirotor Turnigy "pancake motors", i call them that 'cause they are flat& large dia.,30 amp RCtimer "Simon K" speed controls and a KK2 LCD flite control. Going to try 3 bladed props when I get to that.

Ya know I got all worked up about the firefighters that got my airplane out of the trees I didn't comment on the first flight of the UMX Mig. I sat the Mig and it tract perfectly,it soon bacame airborn in a very scale sort of way,,,It flew like a pattern plane Much bigger than it is,Turns were very controled and it had a "Locked In " feel thru the turns the AS3X system works!!!!
Although the tree incident was totally my doing it was flying Very good,good enough I will buy another and fly away from trees!!

Bought a jet today.....I'm PUMPED!!!!

Flying my micro Mig at a park a tree reached out and grabed it! We went to fire house and the firemen came out and got it down with the fire hose,,,,its wet but will fly again,,,,by the way that AS3X is GREAT,,,,the little Mig flies like a big jet , VERY stable.

Here is my other passion......COBRAS .............................

Sold the project,,,it was/is too big for my health,I would really have trouble getting it to the field and flying and recovering it,If it went down I dont have the breath to get it.

On to smaller things:"FOR SALE "FOR SALE"SOLD/sold
Starting a new build, a Kange Waco 72" span with a 6320 Dualsky power and a 64mmEDF ,scale repo of Jimmy Franklin's airshow plane when it was red & silver (The Red Rocket).
Jimmy Franklin and the RED ROCKET (7 min 41 sec)

Kange Kits are about the best quality you can find,Very complete,Very high quality hardware.
I will be putting on a EDF,maybe a 64mm size to duplicate his showplane before he painted it black & silver.Might use the 64 mm fan for scale reasons.
Not expecting much performance gains like he saw (His added 1600hp) to the already 400+ hp radial , but it should look and sound very neat.
Latter......................I have decided to use the 64mm Mercury I have, it is a little bit small but the 8 blade fan sound will be worth it,now to Westlake Hardware store for some ductwork..................Oh almost forgot,I have a Williams Bros Radial engine kit I can assemble and it should look very real..........williams kit to intricate for this,,ordered a TopFlite dummy engine for it,you can make them look good with some detailing

Aluminum ductwork to nsimulate the turbin setup on the Franklin Waco,,,,,hope I can make it look presentabile.
