an end and a beginning


After four years, I sold my trusty 450 frankenbeater last night. The Logo will be sticking around for a little while longer.

My Solo 1500 took a week-long dirtnap due to FPV pilot error, but I got it back and have it mostly patched up. With any luck, it'll fly again this weekend.

Repairing the Solo 1500 gave me the itch to scratchbuild. I drew some inspiration from these:

I'm thinking of using some 3.5" square PVC as a fuselage and a fake cctv dome as a camera turret. I can probably source the tailbooms and tail feathers locally. Might get wings from http://www.flyingfoam.com/.
