This is my latest airplane design made up of 3 and 6mm depron .It has a 28" wingspan and only weighs 1 pound.An E-MAX cf2822 motor,800mah 3cell battery and a 20 amp speed controller.It is a much better plane than I am a pilot so the acrobatics in this video are just my limits and not the airplanes.
I will enjoy improving my piloting skills on this airplane and it may even warm me up to how a jet will preform later on down the line.
Have a great holiday

Here I have a few videos of my modified Hobbyzone Champ and what I did with the Champ's electronics.I love the way the Champ turned out and I was able to put the old electronics to good use.I have designed a sport plane that will fly loops around the old Champ.I hope you like the content and happy flying...Micro Mike

Finally got a chance to maiden the challenge jet this weekend .All in all the test flights were a success.Bad winds,a few technical problems and she still went home in one piece thanks to the good test piloting skills of Pops57 and the hand launching skills of Old Man on RC Groups. Here is a video of how the test flights went. May all your test flights be a success...Micro Mike

I love watching build videos on You Tube and when the Foam Fighters came up with an EDF challenge, I wanted to try my hand at my first jet build.One of the main rules about the challenge is that the plane needed to be built strictly out of foam board .Well I found it to be quite easy to work with and with a few techniques you can bend the foam to shape without unwanted damage.The challenge video is wear viewers can watch the challengers videos and vote on the best built jet .Check it out it might be fun to participate in.

Last weekend I was snapping shots of of some flying buddy's airplanes and this picture just inspired me to post it up on RC groups.It is a scratch built MIG-21, Built by Old Man.This plane looks so good when it flies that I just stare with amazement.It never gets old to watch it fly.
See you guys next week...............Micro Mike

After flying this airplane and getting it dialed in I think the airfoil needs to be redesigned .I am going to build another prototype and do a lot more testing.It might be best to go with a flat wing and do a kf airfoil instead.If you got any thoughts on this matter let me know.Later I will post pics of the new design. I have a video flight testing this airplane and flying my Cessna design, just click on the link.

This is my first blog on Rc Groups.I am more of a Youtube user wear I can make videos of my builds and show them flying .After viewing this website for a while it seems that this is a place to share and learn also.The Idea behind all my designs are to make good looking easy to build micro and park size airplanes using RTF ultra micro electronics and other easy to find products.I will eventually make all my designs available on my website currently under construction.
My first entry is a micro delta wing using Ar6400,250ma 1s,GWS EP-5043 prop and the ultra micro P-51 mustang motor. I got the idea for this plane when viewing experimental airplanes on Youtube .This plane is easy to build and flies great so far. I need to move the electronics around a bit and give it more aileron control .This plane does not use the normal delta controls.I have it set up so that you can use the Tx that comes with your 4ch RTF ultra micro Mustang.You must fly on low rates with the RTF tx.If you were to upgrade the motor and use computer mixing,this airplane would be great for 3D flight.I ordered a champ motor a month ago from Hobby Town USA and still this motor has not come in.Its really disappointing that this airplane has been out now for a few months and not one part is available for repairs.Good thing the champ is so easy to fly that you would never crash it .The champ uses a core less motor and the same prop as the mustang ,lots more power.
I am only a week into this design and usually will take me a month or so to complete.I hope you like it and I am open to suggestions for what kind of airplane I should design next.
