My Crack Yak is still in great shape, and it is my go-to plane. So the Sbach will serve as backup.
Hahaha, nearly ripped the nose off my Edge this morning, may be a half a tube of Welders in the nose at this point. I'm with you, may be time for a new airframe. I like the Crack Yak WAY better than the Edge. I'll just keep flying the CY. I'll have to find out if the old power combo will work with the Crack Pitts.

I am a soon to be owner of my first Twisted Hobbys plane. I ordered the crack pitts this morning and it has already shipped. I am to expect it in the mail on monday. Just ordered the plane, welders glue, and landing gear and am going to be ordering the power combo from them in a week. I wanted to order everything at once be funds are low and i couldn't wait. Yippeeee.

That's the most real-sounding explanation yet to justify a new plane. lol If I had a wife, she'd probably fall for it. Hahaha.

I keep staring at my Edge hanging from the ceiling, trying to decide what to do with it. Ive tried posting it for sale, LPU, but no takers here in NorCal. I like flying the CY much more, so it just hangs there. Anyway, I still picture a four servo wing, so I can crow it and try other weird, nonsensical 3D moves. I honestly think it will work.



edit: Hmmm, anyone install a 4D motor setup on their TH plane yet?

edit 2: 4 servo wing and 4D motor.

Funds are not as low as i thought they would be so i went ahead and ordered the power system combo and a couple 2s lipos. I was just out flying my other plane which is a flyzone switch and my elevator servo is not centering properly and while flying low out of a loop it never centered and sent the plane into the ground nose first. Need a new fuse and motor mount and cowl. But that will have to wait a week or two.

"A couple." I suppose that's how it all starts and then they multiply.

Yea, i can see me owning one of each of the Twisted Hobbys planes. When i was flying helis, i had 13 different ones at one time. And these foamies are cheaper to get up in the air than most helis so that is a plus.

Alternate LED mounts


Heres how I mounted my LEDs. I used (2) 2" pieces of CF rod. and stuck them through the wing and glued them in with Welders, the actual bulbs I used hot glue to the CF rod. I flew it the other night and it held up just fine. I liked having the lights a little further out.

Nice... I'd snap them off in a heart beat, though. Seems to be where my piloting skills are these days. I take the "if the plane's not dirty, you're flying too low" thing pretty seriously.

Ha!

Don't you mean, "if it's not dirty, you're not flying low enough"?

Couldn't help myself. Had to get the Crack Pitts. I love these TH planes. Sure I can buy EPP and make my own planes but its just not the same. TH planes just fly different for some reason or other.
