Very seldom do I ever build more than one of the same plane, This is either 4 or 5 of the Nutballs, I've lost track. An interesting project, using a set of lights from ebay designed for a cabinet lighting system. It came with 2 meters of RGB led strip lights, the programmer, a 12V wall wart and a remote control. The light system weighed in at about 8 oz, but stripped down to 1.3oz. The way I have it set, the lights cycle through each color solid for about 15 seconds each, then blink through each color, then fade through each color and then repeats - pretty cool in the air. The pictures were taken with overhead lights on.

Here's some pictures of my 16" Nutball on floats. I built this specifically for the Spektrum Lake at the JR Indoor Festival we'll see how it works on water. Power is the 10g Hobby City motor and it has plenty of power.

My Drenlyn from the scratchbuilt forum. This is the first airbrush work that was more than just adding some trim detail.

I think I must be one of the few modelers who didn't have a slow stick in his fleet. I got the kit from Radical RC along with a few of their laser cut accessories. The best of which is the adjustable motor mount that lets you adjust both down and right thrust. That, and some new wing supports that allow 55 deg of dihedral. The dihedral was inspired by a slow stick flown by Gary Wright at SEFF. However, there was also a fun fly plane out of KY called the Pro Trainer which had the same amount of dihedral and was a kick ass fun fly plane.

The increased dihedral changed the Slow Stick from what it was designed to be into a real acrobat. Snap rolls are outrageous and yet it still slows down to float around just inches off the ground if that's what you like.
