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!

Here's the second in my footage from the recently completed US Scale Masters National Championships at the Woodland-Davis Aeromodelers field (Sept 29 - Oct 2).

Another vid from Warbirds & Classics 2016. This PC-21 was big and it flew sweet! It was quiet, so the audio of the prop doesn't really pick up a ton.

Well, I finally got some footage of my A-7 that I didn't hate, haha! The airplane is a Jet Hangar Hobbies Kit with JetFan90 90mm EDF, Neu 1415/2Y motor and 12s 5800 mah battery. The paint scheme is from Desert Storm in a commemorative scheme from squadron VA-72. Even after 10 years, she's still fun to fly!
