Long time between Updates! What I am working on


It has been forever since my last Blog Update. I am not sure if anyone is even following this!

But I thought it would be good to update everyone on what I have been working on.

First up is my new designs:

Klingon D7 Battle Cruiser! This one was done by request from an actual Klingon (Cosplayer) that saw my stuff at the Toledo RC Show. It flies great so I decided to turn it into a kit. My friend Rasterize designed 2 different skins that are amazing for it. One is the traditional Klingon paint scheme the other is a Romulan Scheme. I built my first kit with the Romulan scheme because i love the screaming chicken on the bottom. Check out the thread here - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1634224

Next is the Final Kit version of the Battlestar Galactica Viper. Rasterize really outdid himself with the skins on this one. They look amazing! He even put my face inside the helmet - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=907472

Somewhere in the last couple years, one of the members here posted a thread about making a Lunar Lander model. I missed it when it happened but a few weeks ago, someone revived the thread so I got inspired to put together a design for one. My friend Rasterize is pretty geeked about it so he is already working on skins for it! It will be a tail sitter VTOL so it should be cool! - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=2158909


Kit Sales have been great. I am shipping 15-30 kits a month even more around Christmas and the end of flying season. We completely wore out 2 printers with skins. That was a bit of a nightmare. Trying to revive worn out printers is no fun, finding a replacement when the original is out of production is even harder. But we have a new printer that seems to be doing OK. Not quite up to the performance of the old one though.

I am about to release the D7 and Viper as kits. I just need to get the prototype kits finished up and do some test flights. Finding time to do it has been a bit of a problem though. Work has been very busy so not as much time as I would like.

I am also finalizing the design on the X-Wing that everyone wants. I almost have it where I want it from a design standpoint. I just need a little more elevator control. So i am changing the nose into a canard like I did the D7 and we should be good to go. Watch for developments there on the X-Wing thread - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1297378

My next project is probably fixing the Star Trek DS9 Defiant design I did a few years ago working. I LOVE that ship it is by far my favorite Star Trek ship and it should be flying! - https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...0#post10210574

Not as much time for planes as I would like, but I love doing it still and will keep plugging away at it as I have time.

So anyone that is watching, thanks!

Been a while since any updates mate! I would love to "pick you brain" on the Colonial Viper. I'm taking this on as my next build. No one {that I've found} has put an edf in this one.
I'm looking into rigging up a thrust vector to the rudder to help get her turning on a dime.
Any thoughts???

Hi SGTalon, I have been looking at a few of your projects and am very impressed with your models

I am playing with one of the Trekkie birds (Tempest Class Patrol Escort) and would appreciate your comments and / or advice

This is the project I am working on and an considering using a 70 mm EDF, don't know if its been done on one of these ?

I purchased one of these from you several months ago. I am at a standstill. I cannot find a contact number or email address for you. I think your "contact" button on your website is broken since it redirects you to either "coming soon" or "kits". I am at the base cote stage. I tried to use monokotes lustrekote. It ate the foam to unrepairable damage. I need to order both nacelles. How do I do this? Please let me know something soon. Thank you.
