A 6" wingspan Spitfire, a project that's taken a very long time. My first attempt didn't turn out. Second attempt got squashed in a move. So this is my third attempt.

Foam is Durobatics and electronics will be Plantraco and when I get this flying I might upgrade to DavidT's tiny spektrum receivers.

Here's a little video of the balsa spinner mounted to a dremel to see if it's centered properly. It was balanced along with the prop before hand.

Here's some weights:
Assembled plane, foam and glue 0.5 grams.
Assembled plane, foam, glue and paint 0.8 grams. (next time I'll airbrush.)
weight with 4mm motor, spinner and prop 1.5 grams.
weight with paint, 4mm motor, spinner and prop 1.71 grams.

more pics and vids coming soon......Continue Reading

So while I re installing my operating system I forgot to export the bookmarks in Firefox. I lost a bunch of book marked information on all the little links and information I liked to keep on hand. I figured this might be a better way to keep tabs on things.

A couple of useful pinout diagrams for Walkera transmitters.

Perfect brushless motor for the Parkzone Sukhoi, looks like it was made for the plane.

People ask hey Sketch where does your name come from, do you still sketch?! I say heck yeah! Why do you think the name comes from. Drawing is something I've done since I was little and I think it will be something that I will be doing for as long as I can hold a pencil.

Here's one example of the things that I sketch whenever I can. One of my favorite things to do (other than rc helis of course) is to draw the animals at the zoo. Most of the things I do are rough drawings so I'm sure a lot of people are not use to seeing drawings in this stage but I'll share any way.

I'll post more when I have more time.

These are drawn with a felt tip pen on regular printer paper. The color of the paper was edited in photoshop.
