Just finished a BMFA Gyminnie Cricket, bought three years ago at the Nationals, it needs test flying , but its balanced and as far as I can go.
Its not much compared with the builds many of you do, but I am pleased with it.

Not my picture.

Midway through a Seagull model Dual Ace with 2 Turnigy G 46
Having fun with EDF, I have a Banana Hobby 70MM EDF mig 15 that needs a motor, a Jpower 50mm EDF A 10 and a Dynam 70mm EDF Me 262 that are in the box waiting their turn.
Then I have some other warbirds, a Hanger 9 Spitfire with an Astro 60 that needs retracts and an in the box VQ model Zero slated for another Astro 60.
I also need to repair a couple of gliders that need motor replacement.

Well, I wouldnt exactly say building, but I just started assembling a new Great Planes, Super Stearman, seems to be a cool plane. Its replacing a beautiful Eflite Taylorcraft, that flew fantastic, that I flew into the ground a few weeks back. No sense in buying a new Taylorcraft cause ya always have to have something different.

trying to find time to finish up this engine:

still need to sort out the carb and ignition. once done with that i'll start on a plane for it. will be something big with about 3m span.

also need to get started on a new transmitter to replace this:

new one will have gimbals of my own design and a better control layout based on what i learned from that one. big hurdle is to design a new PCB for the encoder. haven't done that in ages and it isn't like getting back on a bike...need to stop putting it off and just do it

I'm building a control line model for Old Time Stunt competition. It is the 1951 Italian Stunt Champion. I'm scaling it up from a 1/4 page drawing in the 1951 Aeromodeller Annual. It is profile, no rudder, @ 32 in wingspan, and will be powered by an MVVS Junior 2 cc diesel. I do not expect to see another one of the flying field.

I started a scratchbuild of a mini sonic liner based off the guts of a parkzone mosquito a couple months ago but got sidetracked with health issues .We're presently in Perry ,Ga for the big swap meet ...hope to pick up a few bargains tomorrow before we hit the road to atlanta to see my kids and grands before we push on back to good ole West Va.Once back home ,depending on what I picked up at Perry I'll prolly finish the SL and move on to other builds .This summer though we'll be traveling quite a bit so building will take a backseat again for a while.

I'm porting some Arduino code from an older board to a newer version, the difference is in the sensors, the libraries they use and how they initialize. It almost works and then something new goes wrong or the computer breaks. I've been at it for about a year.

Don't knock it

A that's REAL aeromodelling (rather than ARF 'model flying'....) and B - if you can trim and make that fly then you're in about the top 1% of todays 'model fliers' - no question

I gutted and remodeled a rental house in 29 days! (Previous tenant was a filthy, nasty person. She has to be the grossest dirtiest woman on this here Earth!) Three other guys helped me with some stuff. All that's left is to put in a washer and dryer. Now I can start building model airplanes again. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
