Well, it flew, just needs a slight bit of tweeking. Its a bit nose heavy and could use some more power. So, I'll put a brushless outrunner in the nose and a slightly bigger battery on the tail. It will fly well, just gotta get it dialed in.

Inroducing, Ms. Isle. Made from a Ultracote tube, speed 400 and some FFF.

Wonder where this thing should balance at! Who knows. If it lives long enough for me to find out, I'll let ya know. Flight report after an attempt is made.

Here is quick pic of my M2 from Ohio Combat. Has a Hacker B-20 26L on it with a 3S 1200. 75mph top speed level, so far. Great little wing.

I stuck 16 LEDs inside a Super Fly to make the SUPER BRIGHT SUPER FLY. Should be no problem to see at night.

80 was close enough for now... it will go faster later. Gotta work out some more bugs I guess.

This is my 12 year old neighbor kid filming my Zagnutz and my buddies Super Fly. He did a really good job too!

Here is a quick video we made of me and my buddy Jay flying the OH-058 a few weeks ago. We are now flying UH-60 Blackhawks. We will be done with flight school in about 2 months and heading off to our new units to fly fly and fly some more!!!! Dont hate! Enjoy!

Oh, the 2nd half of the video is basic "Army recruiting type" video. the first half us me and Jay.

Well, I got a couple of videos of my Big Nutz tonight. Flew excellent!!! I think I will back the CG up from 12" to 13". Should be better then. Man that 10x8 nitro prop sounds viscous! Now I just need a bigger motor that can actually handle it. Any suggestions for a motor that will spin a 10x8 or 11x8 nitro prop at under 40 amps?

As for the videos, once I figure out how to edit quicktime crap I will be able to make the files a little smaller. I use "Movie Maker" and it wont import quicktime from my wifes camera. Any help on this? Anyone?

Anyway, enjoy.

Its done, except for prettying it up some and flying. Sooo, were going out to test fly it in a few minutes. Test glides in the back yard seem perfect, so all should be right with the world!

My latest build... an 76" wing "Big Nutz". Hope to have it done tonight. It has LEDs in it on top, bottom, front and back. Then I put some whistles my wife got me into the wings (whistles not shown). More to follow

Well, here is my first flat plate 3D type foamy that 9LIVES1968 gave me. First couple flights were pretty cool. I never thought this type of plane would fly so well. Had lots of fun with it, until I was inverted over the neighbors house, the motor cut off because the battery was getting low. I lowered the throttle to reset it, and when I increased power again it slammed nose first into the roof of a carport. Dont think its too fixable this time.

Added landing gear and a pilot to the Corsair. Still flys beautifully. Nice little plane just to float around with.

Over-powered by a 400XT and modified to ailerons and elevator, hope to fly it later today. Thanks to my little buddy Kameron for helping with the color, and to my niece Ryann for modeling it.

Heres my wifes Twinstar II I just built her. It the replacement for her Easy Star that the ground reached up and grabbed. This one is powered by a 3S 3200, two BP-21s, with Master Airscrew 8x4 props, 2 - 18A Dynam controllers.

We still have some paint work to be done on it, but its getting there.

Did the maiden for her today. Very nice flyer. Plenty of power. She will do fine with it.
