 A steal at 25$ gets it!, I'll throw in two more servos and a prop.

« on: April 19, 2017, 10:51:11 AM »

This is a great little plane in very good shape cosmetically and structurally. It is light and lively. I'm selling it because I have two!

It has an upgraded motor and esc, (BP 2217-09) and I added a second wing servo so you can trim L&R ails separately. The red cowling is a replacement because the new Pitts cowling doesn't come in blue. I also improved the electronics bay depth and hatch. The landing gear is larger and more robust than the kit gear, but the original gear with wheel spats is a part of this offer. Also I replaced the 10x4 prop with a 3-bladed one.
Here's what HK has to say:

The HobbyKing® ™ Brushless Pitts Special is as exciting to look at as it is to fly!
It's scale details complete with wheel pants and Pitts livery make it a very attractive plane, however the excitement doesnt stop there! This little foamie is equipped with 4 ailerons to give spirited aerobatic performance and the included oversize outrunner and 10x4.7 prop gives more than enough power for all aerobatic flight, and when you feel the need to turn it up a notch just switch the 10x4.7 for a 11x4.7 propeller for hovering capability! All this and still this little foamie is very controllable at slow speeds. This plane loves a walking speed fly-by.A combination of scale looks, excellent flight characteristics and great power plant make this foamie a real winner.
Length: 760mm
WingSpan: 860mm
Weight: 540g
Motor: ESC: 20A brushless

I'm asking for $60, firm, add your receiver, bind n' fly

I have flown this plane several times out doors, sometimes nearly out of sight. It erforms well under power and glides like a dream. Indoors it should be blast too!
It is in good condition, no repairs or major cosmetic damage, it looks lightly used. The only non-original item is the little foam nose spinner which I had to replace.

These go for over $100, but I'm ready to move for $60

A fun little twin cargo plane complete with servo controlled cargo hatch for dropping stuff on your friends. We have dropped 3 little clothes-peg paratroopers at the club field.

Plane is complete with orange receiver, two A1510 motors and two 5A esc, 5 - HXT500 servos (2 ails, rudd, elev, hatch.). The nose wheel is castering. Wings and tail have been reinforced and there is some cosmetic damage that a paint job would hide. All wired and ready to fly.

BUY NOW and you get a second detachable nose free! Mount your flight camera in there, what a view!
Looking for only $60 to cover some of the gear, I need the hangar space.

Order today and you get a second set of props - FREE!

Gord got me off on this, so I'll show progress here, 36: WS, all 3/4 inch Home Depot foam. This all I've done so far. I used the foam cutter on the curved sections as it is hard to cut a neat curve with this material.

Just a quickie, but here is the maiden flight!

« on: January 06, 2017, 05:13:41 PM »
Well, I'm building a SkyKart like Gord's except, mine is not Mario, it will be piloted by, none other than Wylie Coyote, and in the right seat - you guessed it, the RoadRunner!
Got most of the pieces cit out, starting assembly, but thought Gord might comment on my attempt at the wheels. They are almost 4" diameter, and 3" wide instead of four. If I don't get fed up with my foam cutter, I might add the other inch.
Photos to follow tomorrow

Could somebody walk me through how to download and enable a user-made plane profile? (other than those already listed on the Phoenix model menu)
There's lots of info on RCGroups which never seems to work out for me. HELP!

Not much footage for such an important event but many club members were present to wish him well, and share a piece of that great cake!
Also, Gord was able to maiden his F86, a few seconds of that too!

Everybody knows what this is, I'm a bit late to the party. Built this with 3/4 inch insulation foam. It flies well, I haven't trimmed it out yet, but the maiden and a follow-up flight went well yesterday, without incident. C'mon Gord, let's go at it!

This is a foamy, 48" WS, tractor,  just got the first pieces cut. It is not perfectly to scale, but close. I hope to have it finished in time to attack some of the warbirds in September. The finished job below is not mine and I hope to do a better paint job - mottled grey. Too bad Hanna Reich won't be around to advise us, Gord, so you better get ready!

General Discussion / Plane in tree
« on: July 29, 2016, 09:21:40 AM »
Well, I haven't done this for a couple of years, but my T28 Trojan is about 35 feet up in a neighbors pine tree. The tree might be climable, but not by this 79-year old, and I've popped my shoulder again.
Any ideas folks? I've tried all the old tricks in the past but she's pretty solidly embedded, wing off. Both of the club aluminum extension poles aren't quite long enough. maybe today's wind might help.
If not, I've got a 20 ft extension ladder which somebody might be able to reach the plane using the aluminum poles.
Reward offered - a dozen beer for adults, or $25 cash for a younger climber.

 "Tower, Airforce 292 ready for takeoff!"

Gord, batteries are on charge, as soon as that wind dies down, it's maiden-time!

This is the Durafly kit, not too hard to put together with very few instructions. Mods to the kit were:
  Tailboom strengths with internal CF rods
  Air flow vent opened behind nosewheel
  Modifed pilot height and added instrument panel

A few photos of the work party, unfortunately missing many of the 20+ volunteers who turned out for the day.

Starting before 9:00am and ending at about 3:30pm, we were treated to a hamburger and hot dog lunch with appropriate (!) beverages.

The turnout was all the regular senior members, except for Levin's dad, so all you younger guys , come and put in an hour or two next work party!

Lots of brush and trees cleared to tidy up and give more space for visitors and some improved visibility. Unfortunately I missed the log-splitting and firewood-stacking part of 6, but we are all set for next winter with  a really neat stack of wood.

I lost a pair of sunglasses in case anybody found them
