Lone Eagle R/C rehabilitation clinic
I think you and I should look into checking into the Lone Eagle R/C rehabilitation clinic if we ever get over ...oh say 75 planes...yeah...76 for one person...that's one to many. By the way, it's cheaper and easier to get a good trailer then to add on to your house. When you fill that you can get a used cargo trailer for about $1,000 and that will hold a lot of planes. Can't waste that money expanding our house when we can build our air forces. Mike (I won two kits this weekend) Heer
Hey guys, excellent site and really lively forums.
The electric section of my hanger currently holds:
2 x multiplex twin stars, one of which has two kontronic brushless motors fitted.
Galaxy models aerojet. Fast 600 powered jet like model
Kyosho Soarus Sports
Precedent Hi-Fly (converted to electric)
Frankenstein (geared 400 fun fly built from a plan, excellent for aerobatics)
1 60inch, 4x400 motored Lancaster
Wattage Extra 330L (latest purchase)
Most get a fairly regular airing and the (small) collection is fairly broad in terms of the type of model from indoor/park flyers to fast stuff (the aerojet really moves), to gliders and aerobatic stuff.
Also have a fair few glow powered models too but I don't really fly 'em much at the moment and a few slope soarers which get let out occasionally.
Here's mine (only be going since Sep) :
Multiplex TwinStar - my first and I still enjoy flying it. It's now a trainer (for friends or my son) and sometimes a cameraplane.
Zagi with brushless - unfortunately smashed beyond reasonable repair but easily the best plane I've had so far. Will build another.
Multiplex Microjet - transplanted the motor from Zagi but this never really flew properly (too heavy) and is now binned.
Wattage Crazy8 - really satisfying plane, capable of more than my abilities. My first ever ROG takeoffs and landings !
Duskstik - I built this for my son to learn on but not impressed, I don't think it's really suited to a windy place like the UK. Also too fragile for a trainer IMO.
Next build will be a 'zagi style' sloper, not decided on kit yet.
Here is my flyign fleet and a couple under construction in thier new Hangar and storage facility...
