Ive had this 60" wing sitting around for quite awhile now. Originally it was a "lightweight" build with a slow outrunner just to toss around in the front yard. But, now, I decided to slap on a bunch of LED's and a different motor. Thanks to my buddy Bo for hookin me up with the LED's from one of his crashed planes. It looks like visability wont be a problem for this one.

Now to find the perfect power system to keep it in the low to mid speed range.

Well, I listed my 6' Telemaster for sale, but, no takers. So, this afternoon, I slapped an AXI on the nose with a 13x6 prop, a Castle ICE 60, Castle CC BEC and a 3S 6000 lipo. It balances out right in the middle of the recomended range. I charged up the brand new lipo and its ready to go tomorrow for its maiden flight (assuming the weather man is wrong).

A Telemaster is not really my kind of plane, but, heck, its 6 feet of brushless balsa flying through the air, what the heck! Strangely, this will be another "front yard" plane for me. Yeah, my front yard is bigger than most, but this one should get folks attention. It will be the biggest span plane I have flown here since all my other "big planes" are/were way to fast to get on the ground in my yard.

Im sure it will go smoothly.... Now, anyone want to buy a RTF 6' Telemaster???

Hey folks, yes, I have listed a TON of stuff for sale. But not to worry, it is for no reason other than, well, I dont want it all sitting here falling apart while Im gone for another year in Afghanistan. (Plus, some extra money never hurts). No, Im not getting out of flying AT ALL! Just shaving down the fleet and some "extra" stuff. Once I get back, I'll be on the war path buying up everything I can find again (as usual) to my wonderful wifes dismay.

So, with that said, spend some money and buy my planes and stuff guys!!!

I am finally back home from Colorado. DANG it was cold out there! We flew around in the mountains, did lots of power management training, lots of pinnacle landings, two wheel and one wheel landings etc... All in all, great training and lots of fun.

Now Im home, and its time to get ready for another year in Afghanistan. Part of that includes clearing out some hangar space. I hate to see my planes/motors/batteries sit in the trailer for a year. So, if you are reading this, look through my blog and if there is a plane you might be interrested in, make me an offer! Otherwise, I will eventually end up listing them for sale. Anything and everything CAN be sold.

Here is a quick list off the top of my head... all are electric, ready to fly and can even iclude RX and batteries if needed.
