Working on a couple of more builds. Here's a 600 size heli conversion to a 109 fuse. Pretty straight forward more of a assembly then build. Flew the mechanics and there ready to install in the fuse. Once there in and test flown I'll ad all the little scale details.

Getting closer might have test hops later in the week. I'm looking at a alternative to access batteries but it's not looking good.

Finishing touches complete. Next to do some trim flights at a freinds warehouse. Hoping for this weekend. Might even get some video.

Have some time so I figured since people stop by here to check me out I'd post a bit of info. First I've been building and flying R/C for about 25 or so years. My main interests are Scale Planes and Helicopters. I've built from plans, kits and also assembled a few ARF's along the way. I enjoy posting here and on other forums and find the exchange of ideas and different personalities I meet along the way vary but the goal is normally the same promoting our sport.

I've seen the good and the bad sides of our sport and am glad the good far outweighs the bad. Anytime you have a group of people together there's always going to be a difference of opinions. That's just life. I serve as the Club contact or Secretary of our club the Horizon City Flyers in El Paso, Texas. We fly 365 days a year here since winter isn't really a factor.

I'll post some of my builds and projects as this blog develops along with some of the events and cool stuff our club promotes such as night flying. One of our members put this together.
