Hi all

had a 5 o clock start this morning to get this flying as I want it painted tonight

flew mine today and its superb
has no bad habits at all
basically well chuffed
unlimited vertical as well on 6x5 GWS props

roll rate is a lot better than I thought and it looks just as expected and sounds wonderful

also a very strong bird too as the theres something growing in our field that stands about 2 ft high and snagged on landing and rolled from wingtip to elevator about 4 times

well happy as you can tell

want to build a bigger one now

You look much younger than I'd imagined, Trev!

Delighted the project was a success - wouldn't like to knock one together for me I suppose

Nice job, whats the all up weight and wing span?

Here is a short 400k video of a P38. Anyone know the details?

Cheers Rog

looking good for 35 eh?

must have had an easy paper round

took way to long Rog to do another the same way.....
didnt keep the templates but still have the plan if you are interested (tiled aswell)


its 14 1/8 oz with a 1600 welgrade 3 cell and 40" span managed to keep her light its very agile with bags of power and slow right down to almost walking space....but needs a rudder

just got a little colour on it looks real cool now....if you look close the paint is a little patchy cause its still wet

Try this for size

There is another "decal" thread somewhere in RCG - I'll have a look around

My "Miss Virginia" decals are somewhere in that decals thread... "Miss Virginia" is the P-38 which shot down Admiral Yamamoto (the mastermind of the attack on Pearl Harbor).

Matt -- it looks like a low-altitude thrust imbalance on that P-38. They're deadly! It's the same thing that happened to the P-38 in my avatar (but it crash-landed better, and the parts were sold to Red Bull).
