I know this is not a plane, but it sure "Fly's"
The only problem is hauling planes to the field.

I changed the pace this weekend and took the Nirvana2 out for the maiden. I soon found myself sailing with the club boats. what a fun day. What a nice relaxing Sunday afternoon.

I got my big bird in the air. After a long wait on the racks I pulled her down and ordered the ignition box and installed it, filled her up with fresh fuel and BINGO here we go.
I put seven flights on the books, and all I can say is WOW! I love flying this plane. it is so light in the air it almost fly's like a fomie, but much more locked in.
What a great way to end the season.

I was invited to fly my F-22 for the CAP program yesterday. They are adding an R/C program for the cadets, and they wanted a easy build. What better plane than the F-22. Now they will be ready for "combat"

So I picked this up the other day at my LHS when buying a folding prop, I got to say this thing is a blast to fly around while working in the office. Sure is tiny and fast. I haven't got much work done the last few days....

So with the build of the X-8 I wanted to launch it off a catapult system, so here is what I came up with. I need to add the arms and set the tension on the bungees as well as a foot pedal, and it should be ready.
