This is about the baddest RC Corsair I've ever seen. Moki 250 radial engine, folding wings, and an amazing pacific theater finish. It looked and flew amazing!

Here's my flight review for the E-Flite A-10 Warthog. This is a cool little model with good power that flies awesome! Full article with links is available at: http://wp.me/p5LuFX-KM

This is a Jet Arrows all composite A-10 owned and flown by Corsair Nut. Power is twin 70mm EDFs running 6 cells. It's hard to believe this airplane has such good energy retention in a glide, it glides forever! You wouldn't think that based on the configuration of the airplane.

A little video with some pics of my friend Air-Jon's Freewing Mig-21. He repainted it and did a few mods also including designing an afterburner tail cone that has a bunch of LED's in it for the motor which looks killer and is incredibly convincing in the air.

Finally, here's the start of our Kit Bashing 101 series (I hinted at this in our Freewing Mirage 2000 review)! This video covers the physical conversion process in crafting and building the different components and then putting it all together. We are leveraging 3D printing for a few of the parts too, but they are all parts that can also be crafted from foam too should you choose. The Freewing Mirage 2000 makes a killer looking kfir!

My friend Corsair Nut and I decided to follow through on a project we talked about doing literally a year ago...scratch building some UMX A-5A Vigilantes. So, here's a little vid of our adventure. These little jets fly awesome! We're already talking about building a pair of much larger ones.

Here's my assembly and flight review of the E-Flite P-47 Thunderbolt Razorback. This is a nicely engineered model that goes together really quickly and flies great! This was the bind and fly version which includes SAFE Select and so we touch on that as well. I'll be doing a separate video on SAFE Select as part of my "from the bench" series.

While flying out at PVMAC, I caught video of this Legend Models P-38. It looked and flew really nicely and had awesome power. The size of the airplane was really nice too. Not too big, but not small either.

Here's a little compilation video from the 2017 AMA Expo West show. Definitely some fun stuff there, but having a booth there, I wasn't able to get as much footage as I was hoping. I hope next year to catch some of the indoor flying action. Check out my full article at http://wp.me/p5LuFX-Bp

This is my buddy Corsair Nut's refinished 70mm F-104 Starfighter. He covered the fuse in aluminum tape and painted the empenage and wings. He also installed some different struts on the gear which helped give the airplane a more scale gear stance. The power system is one that he had, it is not the stock freewing power system. It was a cool little model that flew well. Good thing it has tip tanks, otherwise those wings would disappear!

Here's my full assembly and flight review video for this Tigercat. Also, I have a full article posted at thercgeek.com/FLRCTigercat. Took a little longer than I had hoped based on the timing of the holidays and weather, but could have been worse I suppose. Got it done just in time for Christmas...it's a Christmas miracle!

I put together a little compilation from the US Scale Masters Championships. Though, I have a couple more feature videos coming on some secific aircraft, this provides more of the action and feel from the event. If you have ever considered scale competition, give it a try, it's great! Oh, and next week I should have a new tutorial vid posted!

This G-164A Ag-Cat was entered in expert by Ben Andrus and scored a perfect 100 in static judging. It was such a nicely built airplane that was finished perfectly!

This F-20 Tigershark was designed, built and flown by Lance Nordby. Entered in expert it was a very well built model and just looked cool flying around. It was powered by a 70mm EDF.
