I just got the Alula in the mail. Many thanks to grandpa for buying it for me
Anyways, I immediately looked up designs for the plane (is it a plane or a wing?)

I saw many creative designs, but decided to go on my own for this one. Since I live in America, and it's an awesome country, it seemed like a fitting theme for the Alula.

Currently, I am done with the tail. The wing will have AMERICA going across it.

Here are some rough draftsss

Unfortunately we had four crashes, three major and one minor
A rarebear stalled after too much elevator input at slow speed: loss of airframe
A T-28 stalled after too slow: Damage but fixable
A huge 1/4 scale electric came in hot on landing and overshot runway, flipped and broke rudder and motor mount
A 1/3 scale Fokker bipe lost radio signal just after takeoff, complete loss.

Other than that, the event was amazing!...Continue Reading

I just traded my VIP pylon racer and my Dx7se for a Dx8 and some batteries!


Im working on modifying it, ordered a lipo from hobbyking (they are on backorder!)

So far, i put on the orange fuel tubing to tell the dual rates switches, and a clear blue one for the throttle cut on the back.
