Nice collection. I'd love to see pictures of the 1/3 scale.

Right now, due to a string of mishaps, I don't have anything flying of any type. I hope to change that soon though. I have a 25e sized Cub that might get maidened this weekend and a string of various sized warbirds and a couple of biplanes to start building.

Default Deja Vu

I seem to remember posting to this before, BUT, here goes.

I'm currently flying a HZ Aerobird3, and slowly learning how NOT to crash it.

What do you have?
Currently none...as I'm sitting in front of the computer typing.
But seriously I have only small stuff (under 48" ws) with the exception of 2 planes yet to finish....one is a C47 from Polks Hobby just need to button up a few things and its ready to maiden. The other is a Seagull .40 Decathlon that I'm going to convert...someday. Really like warbirds...was looking at getting a P26 from Nitro Models and converting it too. But it will have to wait for a little while.
Planes that I fly now are a Multiplex Micro Jet, Retro Racer (my design) and a Rebel (an RCG members design). Have way to many projects going on right now, hopefully I will actually get them done before the winter....so I can start more.

I like to scratch build & I fly other than electric so my electric fleet is kinda small. I do have one ARF from the dark side though.

B-36
Jaguar E-type
Chubby Stick
Wildcat ARF

Nearly there:
75% Stratos EDF delta.

I was starting to ask what happened to the LA P-51. Then I remembered that one was your son's. Has he still got it? I'm hoping to start building mine soon.
