Well, here is my finished extremeflight yak-54, post maiden. Got a turnigy 35-42d in there, a 2200 zippy lipo 20c, 2 hobbycity mg servos, 2 esky servos, a supersimple 50a esc, and a castle 10a bec, running off my airtronics rds8000. Flies beautifully. Easy as a trainer and aggresive as competitive 3d. Floats down to landings. Here are the pics.

Here is the new body I adapted to my mini lst2. Its a custom classic body for a rc18t but fits just right. Really like the way it looks.

Here is a vid of my t-28 trojan repainted to t-28 fennec paintscheme, used by France's Air Armee during the Algeirs conflict, circa 1949-1950. This plane really did fight in it as a light ground attack aircraft so it qualifies as a warbird (love them). I took the wheels off because landing with them on that field is next to impossible and because it increases speed and handling substantially. Watch in high quality, there are 2 sustained knife edges that I executed before breaking off. It will actually climb while knife edging on the zippy-h 2200mah 20c lipo I have in it and the stock power system.

Well shes old. Shes almost forgotten on the groups. But she still flies, here are 2 vids of my once flagship plane. She has flaps and is painted in lend lease trim scheme.

Here is a vid of my parkzone t-28 as stock, before my paint and wheel pant modifications. Shes running a 2200mah 3cell lipo, and flies great. I love this plane, everything is just right with it!

Parkzone t-28 Trojan (6 min 32 sec)

I try to work on my landings. Good flying and bumpy landings are sloppy. Hope you guys like it. Watch in HD.

Here are my newest additions to rc. An airtronics rds8000 8 channel spread spectrum radio, and a mini lst2. Im not sure which is more amazing, but the mini lst2 is more fun by far. It is, in one word, indestructible.

For those who like bikes, here is my current rig. A 2009 rockhopper pro disc, in champagne. Its a one and only, as I have never seen this color before, and its custom built (sort of). I got it as a replacement for a 2004 whos drop out retention bracket cracked. Well, anyway, great old specialized replaced it with this free of charge, and Im happy to say its not a concern anymore because the design that caused the crack has now been abandoned (I believe it has been since 2006 or so). The only original parts left are the seatpost, handlebars, bb, headset, and cranks. The rest has been replaced with a 2007 manitou relic super fork, shimano deore/sun rhyno lite wheels, avid bb7 brakes, shimano lx dual control shift/brake pods and rear derailleur, bulletproof bmx pedals (Im one of the few that actually likes platforms and does ok on them) easton ea50 stem, specialized rival 143 seat, and continental vertical tires. The cranks are truvativ 5d's (those cranks have about 2000 miles on them so far). I must say, I loved the last one and I love this one even more. Its FAST, climbs just as well as it descends (great, even better than the old one), and is very stiff. Thank you specialized!

Here is my repainted t-28 trojan. It is now a t-28 fennec. As accurate to a real model as I can get, it is based on a model that operated in the Algerian conflict with France during 1959-1960. Its been moderately modified with respect to details. Its almost done, only a bit more work with finding decals and working on the 3 blade prop. I should mention that this, unlike several of the models displayed on this page, is fully operationall. It houses a 480 outrunner, a 2200mah lipo, and a 30a esc, with a 10a bec (for retracts use later on).Should have updated pics in a couple of days. Hope you like.

Here is my new t-28 with the rest of the fleet. Parkzone stryker (my build), typhoon, eflite p-47, modded with flaps, and the new t-28. These are the sole survivors of a once proud fleet of 7. The first one was destroyed (trainer, after I learned to fly a faulty receiver trained it into some trees at 55mph), one was abandoned, and well, the helicopter, I trashed it after its gyro died and I got sick of it. Now there are actually just 2, since I basically abandoned the stryker (still want a new one) and the typhoon was at the end of its rope. My second plane with over 165 flights on it, I decided it was time to move on. And then there is my bike. For those who know, its a specialized rockhopper with almost everything upgraded. Indestructable. Love it. Thats where half my money goes. 1.3k right there....Continue Reading

This is my latest static model, a 1/32 mig-15bis used in Korea by the Soviets, it is produced by Hobbycraft in Canada and is actually a Modified Chinese Trumpeter kit. I added many details personally. Please note, there has been recent confusion over some of my models. This specific model does not fly as it is a static scale styrene model. You probably couldnt get it to fly with a rocket. Still, looks great in the living room. Hope you like.

This is the queen of my fleet. Best plane ive ever built or flown, an eflite p-47, modified for flaps. The gearbox is also a 480 gearbox modified to accept a 400 brushless inrunner (3600kv I think). Its running with 6 servos total and a 2200mah 3cell lipo. Flies like a dream. Can go up to about 55mph but slows to 15 for landings. I get about 20 to 25 minutes flight depending how I fly it. Its painted under a modified lend lease trim scheme. Its not perfect but its pretty close...

Here is the new little styrene kit I built. An italeri uh-34d that I converted to the french marine paint scheme. Its a version that was built by sud in france, on license from Sikorsky. Its a 20mm cannon on the side. Hope you like.

Might as well post pics of this here in the blog, its the only place on the groups that fits. Need to start a blog anyway. This is a ch-47 airfix kit I built during the winter vacation {well, here on vacation its actually summer}. Its the uk odiham squadron. Not quite finished or touched up yet in this picture, but its pretty good {I assume}. Here it is.
