More put together for me than build. One wrecked, beat up Yellow Pico Tiger Moth that was crushed in delivery and a white Pico Tiger Moth (never did like the white one), a Great Plane Tiger Moth, an E-flite Nieuport 17 250, a Fun Cub, and lastly an Electrifly/Great Planes SE5a. Got all the stuff, just haven't been able to sit and concentrate long enough to do it. Something great to look forward to!

I'm doing the final tweaks to my fpv hexakopter. Struggling with the antenna tracking system, gps lock hasn't been that good lately. I think the sun's been very active. But she's flying good. Just have to get the video feed a little more trustworthy. I had a fpv quadkopter before that, that was tuned to perfection, but it had a mysterious crash after a year of good flying, I believe it was a bird strike, no way to know for sure. But working on this hexa has made me appreciate just how good I had that quad setup. I had it out to 3 miles fpv, about as far as you can go with a kopter due to speed and time restrictions on that platform.

Next up is another fpv project, the RVJET from rangevideo (not available yet, but very soon from what I'm told)... can't wait for that one.

I wonder about a FPV quad etc, billyd60, but can't see it worth the (large) expense.

3 miles... You must have been at the Tx limit!

I'm just finishing up the interior on a 120 sq. ft. addition I've built onto our house. Just installed the last of the trim, and I have to build two closet shelves yet, then the inside is done. Outside, I still have to put up the ventilated soffit, as I ran out of warm days a while back.

In the shop there is a pile of plane stuff waiting for me; including a mountain models P-51 ready to cover, a mountain models EVA sport half built, a pink foam delta dart that needs a motor, parkzone SE-5A broken in half, a Pico Tigermoth with a broken wing, and a zagi still in the box. Next week I'll be back to work on that stuff.

In the middle of finishing my basement. Have 4 x 8 HO train layout half complete that the kids lost interest in, but I'm getting the urge to build some old school balsa planes again. I'd like to get my hands on that 48" cub Hobby Lobby used to sell.

I'm helping a local high school build and finish a Top Flite Dazzler for "Speedfest" in April. I'm installing the radio and controls for them this weekend.
Then I've got a Guillows stand off scale Cessna 170 on the board. Tail feathers are done fuse is started Wings are yet to go.
And a Guillows little Spitfire needs final assy and paint.
And I've got a five year old foamy F-16 prop pusher that needs final radio hook up and decals.
And I just bought a Green model works mini Tigermoth. That just needs assembly and a reciever.
And I've got a Arii Ki-61 Tony that needs final paint and decals for a customer.
