Here's My ME109


Finished it a couple months ago, but haven't flown it yet. Decided I wasn't ready and made a couple Blucor foamies to practice with instead. Will probably take the landing gear off and give it a try soon.

My Corsair


I have had this done since about February. I flew it back at the beginning of April and it is fast. This was my first glassing attempt and it went well. Just very time consuming. It weighs about 18.3 oz. without battery. With the battery I use 3sp lithium, I think etech 1250's. It weighs about 20.3 oz. I use servos - hs55 for elevator, futaba micro for rudder and 1, hs81mg for ailerons. The ailerons stick somewhat because of the wires bending through the shape of the wing. It is flyable with 50% or 100% throw on the servos, but with like 25% it sticks after turning one way and it doesnt want it fix itself, I have to manually move the stick all the way to the other side to right itself. I might go back and use 2 servos for the ailerons, it will be much better. It has himaxx 2500-4200 with balsa products 18 amp esc. 9 x 6 prop with c gearing. If anybody can run the calcs for how many amps Im running would be great. The time I flew it only had it about half throttle and it felt like it was going 35 mph. Other planes include slow stick, Estarter, TM 400, Superstar .40, Mini Dragonfly 300, and this 1. So far this one has got to be the fastest, still waiting for better weather to get back out, it is my favorite plane so far. Only flown so far 3 flights about 2 min. each. Everything went great. Here it is.

Was hopin' noone would ask that.Haven't gotten it off the gound yet.Would probably fly if I hand launched,but,I need to ROG.Tough to get a brick to rise of ground(23+ oz with battery).Got one more battery to try this weekend.If that doesn't work,I'm goin' whole hog.2 Maxx Prod 2015-5400s and a 3s2p 4000 mah lipo.It'll either fly,or,the nacelles will rip off and put them selves into orbit.The other option is to actually install a couple of Estes rocket engines in the fake ordinance hanging from the wings.Jato assist.
