Skipped May update...too much going on. So here is the latest...
I have switched my electronic allegiance to Futaba from Spektrum. I lost the P-38 due to an electronic glitch on the maiden flight. That is one total loss and three other plane crashes in the last year due to unexplainable receiver failures. I now have a Futaba 2.4ghz 7C FASST system. I have ordered but not received 2 FASST compatible receivers made by FrSky to begin replacing in my fleet.
I put the original Futaba rx in my new Hobby King (Venom) F-86 70mm Sabre this month. My wife bought it for my birthday last month..woohoo! The maiden was a failure due to nose wheel hitting a patch of gravel and buckling and throwing a rock into the edf and shattering it. Ordered E-flite Delta V15 motor and edf and it rocks! Maiden with it was super and it's a great flying plane. See video below. It flies best with a Zippy 40C 4S-4000 lipo. It has electric retracts, speed brakes, flaps, and full house controls. The radio works great except the variable knob for flaps should be on the left side of the radio.
The FMS Blue Petie got new tail feathers this month and has maidened okay.
The FMS P-47 Jug is still one of my favorite planes to fly!
MaxJet F-117 Nighthawk lost steering servo and not sure how to get in to fix it...may become hand launcher!
