It chaps my nads that people continue to support crooks like them.

I guess we disagree on basic economic philosophys then - like the survival of your own country's economy and the importance of your neighbor continuing to have a job, business ethics etc.

I dont want to get into a fight about it and your right, it is off topic to this thread, so lets just agree to disagree

Default My Last Rant Here.

How is buying, for example, an Emax cf2805 rather than an UH fc 28-05 for $9 more helping the American economy? It's the SAME motor! How many times have we seen the Blue Wonder resold?

How is buying a rebadged Pontiac Vibe rather than the Toyota Matrix doing anything other than rewarding bad behavior?

The money is going there anyway why should somebody pay more just because an American bought it and raised the price to sell to an American.

I know this is off topic but just for information the Vibe and the Matrix are both built in Calif. at a plant called New United Motor Manufacturing Inc. (NUMMI) by the same workers on the same lines at the same time. The plant is a Joint venture between GM (40%) and Toyota (60%). (It's cheaper to buy the raw materials and "build them where you sell them" than to pay the import taxes)

Default Back On Topic.

Here's a couple of my latest. The Bipe isn't finished yet I'm really slacking on it. It'll be my 1st slowflyer in awhile and my first slowflyer aerobat ever.
The other is another Mugi. This time 26" and the verticals are 125% scale.

The bipe will be powered by an ARC "110" in a GWS 350 gearbox, A gearing, probably with an 11x4.7 on 2s, I really have to start buying some 32 Li-Pos. The ugly yellow paint is the result of me thinking yellow would cover the red overspray I though could be covered by yellow.

There's a scratch built speed challenge going on at RCG so I have to find something else to build. And I still don't have a radio )':

Default Sokitume flyer!

Or as my wife refers to it - "Get that smelly thing out of the house or wash it!"

This is my version of an idea that Steve Schumate came up with. I think he called his the "Dirty old sock flyer" or something similar.

Its very possibly the stupidest RC "flyer" ever devised.

Pretty funny tho

If your going to build one (I cant imagine why you would, but...) you will need:

1) any small outrunner. (note1: make it one that you dont really care too much about because ALL the landings will be nose first at hi speed.)
2)any old lump of foam or wood or pool noodle toy or whatever for a fuse.
3)speed controller - see note #1
4)battery pack - see note #1
5)any old reciever - one chanel is all you need - again - see note #1
6)2ea very dirty, old, smelly socks. The smellier the better, but the aerodynamics work best if there are no holes in them - Dont see note #1 - socks seem to survive hard landings very well, so feel free to use your favorite pair if you wish.

Note #2 - NEVER EVER use a pair of your wifes socks unless you get permision first. Dont even do it then

Here's my latest.

39" wingspan (6mm Depron)
36" Fuse (11mm Depron)

Set up for 3D (A little scared so CG is at 33%)

Monster Power25 w/12X6E prop 870kv 32Amp
3S2P 4200mah Battery

OK, OK, It's a little bit over powered but I'm going to strap a camera to it on it's maiden flight.

I have just finished building an indoor 'Brio 3D' from free plans I downloaded. The tiled plans fitted together perfectly and the build was extremely easy. The hardest job, as ever for me, is to decide on a colour scheme.
Hardware for the 'Brio' is as follows: The motor is the new Dualsky XM2812CA-27 (available from Al's Hobbies) and fitted with an APCe 8"x3.8". Esc is a 'Pentium 10A', TP 450mAh 2s LiPo battery, GWS nano 4ch Rx and 3-off Super Tec Digital 5g servos. AUW is 5ozs and a quick check shows that at half throttle the 'Brio' is buoyant in my hand, so plenty of reserve power.
This is the first Depron self-build shockie I have tried and have had such a great time building it that I have downloaded a shed load of free 3D plans off the 'net. I guess I won't be stuck for something to build this winter!

This is my most recent scratch built, also the most success one over the past. ...........it doesn't looks good though, anyway, I fly every morning now.
I am starting to work on my next project now, and it will be a push type airplane, cause i lost so many motor mounts when i flew the plane with motor in the front.

here is the link of the airplane on youtube. No complain, that was a one man show. I mounted the camera on my transmitter.

Hi Lrplin great job on the scratch built plane and doing the video, its awesome when a person can build a plane from scratch and get it to fly, If your interested I have a pusher jet build, where you can make you own jet, here is the link, take care, Chellie

ok, I tossed in a few more builds for you

Fascinating device - looks just like an RC version of the late Ken Willard's "Fantastic Ragtime Flying Machine". My OFB Gray reported on one flying in the UK in his October Sport Channel column in the UK mag RCMW - except this one is two hankies attached to a wood block, to which is screwed a glow 049, like the original's.

[email protected]@&y dangerous about sums it up! At least Larry's has a way of shutting off the lift engine - good on you for trying it though (any chance of a hi-res digital shot of it for me, so I can score one over Gray in my QEFI column, Please, pretty please?)

It's getting real hard to build anything original!
