Hi Jim
OK I start
In 2006 I made a solar powered RC car
Dimension 450mm x 750mm
The front wheels are drove & steered
Two small outrunners "inside the wheel" on front left and front right
Motors are BM2410 rewound
Two CC MAMBA 25 (ESC for cars) on the same throttle channel
I don't tried only one ESC because in the turns wheels have different speeds
Two rear steered wheels
Good success in french solar challenge RC

My project in 2007 is to build a solar RC car with 4 outrunners in the wheels
One CC MAMBA 25 for Front & Rear right side, One CC MAMBA for left side.
The code name could be "2CC-4-Sun"
3 pictures of project Solange II
* Overview
* Front wheel left, motor in the wheel, look at magnets
* Second motor in the right front wheel
And I add a small video from june 2006
Solar RC Cars (0 min 39 sec)

Here's another one: an Alfa MiG-15, with a Castle Creations Phoenix-25 speed control.

Click HERE to see and hear the MiG hit 82 mph!

One last entry -- though I'm not sure if this counts...

Here is a link to my web page of 13 aircraft using 14 Castle Creations speed controls.

Finally, I'm currently in the process of building a second GWS P-51 (Castle Creations Phoenix 25), and a GWS P-38 (twin Castle Creations "Genie-25's").

I only buy the best!

OK, I'll join in

Here is my BIG 30% sized foamy project. I call it the 6 Bits.

Its all 6mm Depron. The wings are 2 piece removable (wing tube from shower rod) folded 6mm Depron with no ribs.

Span is 85", length 85", all up weight about 6.5 pounds.

It uses a CC Phoenix 80 and Berg7 controlling a Mega 22/20/4 with MiniDeamon gear box spinnging a 20x8 prop. Power is 6S2P 2100 packs.

It still needs finishing paint/covering but flys great!

I'll toss in a couple of silly ones as well - hopeing for the 'chuckle vote'

The Batboat is one of my variations on the Hydrofoam crazyness with a strong influence by Ernests 4Q. Flys great on a Phoenix 25 and Berg4L

The Batcar is pure sillyness inspired by the "General Lee" flying car built by slopersteve. It uses a P10 and Berg4. It flys supprizingly well.

A friend of mine and myself converted a Cox XB-29 Airlifter to include ailerons and elevator. We kept everything stock even the motors. Notice the Castle Creations Berg Microstamp 4L reciever, it is my reciever of choice for all my A/C. I now call it an AA 757. It flys great and looks real in the air.

So far my vote goes to the guy with the big blue missle. Not safe, but definitely cool.
