Life vs. Time has gotten the best of me lately... Finally had some time to almost finish the Big Durastick.. This is from Texas RC Planes quite local to me, and the owner is a great guy..

This bird is 66" wingspan... Going to fly on a Eflight 60, Castle 100amp Esc on 6S

Should be nice... Will have to maiden after the holiday weekend...

All I lack is picking up a prop adapter and prop.. Throw the battery door on and balance.

Words cannot describe my excitement...

I have had over a dozen 3D Hobby Shop planes of the past few years.. Sold some, crashed some.. the usual story.

My favorite electric of them all was the VR1

Found another RCG member who has one that had a landing gear blowout. I am buying it for parts.

Mine met an unfortunate end in an inverted harrier dumb thumb.. "up vs. down" problem... 3DH didn't have parts necessary to fix it.. So I replaced that one with the 3DH 48" Edge, which I am still flying today.

Thanks to blackzrx... His VR1 + My VR1 = one good VR1

Cannot wait to get this back in the air.

It all started with ordering one of Tom's (N827TM) kits. This batch of kits were put together by icharus which I am really glad he did...

If you ever wanted one of these kits.. Great for building season coming soon... You better grab one while you can.

Here is mine:

Got to get to work on this again!

Do you ever have so many projects that you cannot find the motivation to finish any of them?

I am that way right now...

1 - Keeping a Fellow Club Member Flying.. He is a retired US Air force flight engineer/mechanic. I love his stories... Been helping him quite a bit.
2 - Building a new TexasRC Durastick 68" of electric fun.
3 - Kit building a Skybaby. (will post more about this)
4 - Rebuilding a LED T-28 for night flying.

And.. All the normal duties
