I decided to repurpose one of my parts planes.
Starting out as a parkzone micro 210, it was battered and the tailfeathers were missing so I decided that it should undergo a makeover and fly again.
I proceeded to cut off the back half of the fuselage and reposition the servo rods in order to create a Cessna 336 skymaster. The tail booms are made from dollar tree foam board and the control surfaces are 1mm depron and I made new control horns from an old DVD case.

I still have to stiffen the booms control serfaces.

Here are some pics of what I have so far. The wing is a hobbyzone champ wing, the tail will be a modified champ tail. I still need to decide what to use for the electronics, if you have any ideas let me know. Thanks for looking.

Hi guys, something new here, Just an idea, but it is turning into a ultra micro Volmer jenson vj22 seaplane. I may post pics and a build log later. If anyone has any ideas let me know. It's fuse is made out of epp foam. The airplane will be about the size of the hobbyzone champ and will use some of the same components.

Thanks for viewing, um nut
