ID:	151953Not normally a plane I would choose, normally fly scale stuff like Beavers etc. A fellow flyer made me a deal " I couldn't refuse".
It an Aeroworks 50CC 300 Extra. I've powered it with a Suppo7035-8 (190kv), driven by 12S/5000 Flightmax batteries, controlled by a Castle 110HV controller. Servos are Power HD 9150's all around.
I tried to fly it this past Sat, but final inspection showed CG had me WAY nose heavy. Ended up doing range checks and taxiing. Showed wild power with the 23/10 Zoar electric prop selected!!
CG has been corrected, should fly tomorrow night, weather permitting. Way too windy today!! flying-barely

Nice, a Simple Series ME-109! I had the T-6; it started out with a Norvel 0.61, then got converted to a BP21 outrunner, and I gave it to my brother......don't think he's flown it yet, two years later.

My latest acquisition is the little Eflite Sbach 342 - amazing performance for a tiny RTF foamy. First plane I've bought in a couple years, I guess...

Default Fun Cub

Just got back from flying my newest plane the Multiplex Fun Cub. Has a headsuprc 3536-10 motor turning an 11 x 5.5 pulling over 240 Watts WOT with a 3s 2350 20c LiPo. All up weight is 28 ounces which is pretty light considering how large this foamy is. If flys real nice very easy. Can also preform as a sport flyer. I've also installed the flaps and when deployed on a landing will stop on a dime landing at walking speed. I have a MS Composit swift II next in line and I have to replace landing gear on my 3DHS 42" Slick and should be ready to fly again.

Here is my latest. A scratch built 40 size Big Stick. Powered by a Monster Power 46 with a 60 amp esc. Uses a 4 cell 4000 or 5000 mah battery.

Well now I have flaps on many of my planes but I don't call them quad flaps. I do use my flaps for slower flight and shorter take offs and landings.

here is the long awaited maiden flight of my Titan EDF trainer, there are two videos, my father decided to switch cameras in the middle of the flight to use a more advanced smart phone off a fellow club member.

Hey Buzzbomber... after you mentioned you had the T-6... i recalled seeing one in the storage shed where all my bulk purchase planes are... found one NIB... debating wether to sell it or build it

Well this is what happens when you have too much free time, a warped mind, and a stash of balsa and spare parts.

Scratch built 6 foot wing, rehashed H stab, built V stabs, stash wheels, long forgotten 680 brushed motor/gearbox. PVC internal structure, 4 strobes, LED's on the LE. And yep that's a Wiffle ball bat.

And well it's both a pusher/puller prop I guess.
Even sillier, MotoCalc says it should fly like a dream........
Probably more like a nightmare.

E-Flite P-47D. Bought it off of rc classifieds while I was in Ohio. I have finished putting it together and I have the 400 brushed motor in it now, but I just bought a Park 450 off of Grasshopper that I am going to throw at it now. Holding off on the maiden till the new motor arrives. Cool plane though, E-flite does pretty good work.

Hi Glacier Girl... what is the Me 262 at the top of the photo? Kit, scratch build, edf, pusher etc etc? Looks fairly scale from what i can see. The main subject looks an interesting build, by the way

Just pulled the trigger on a 3D HobbyShop Edge 540 41". $100 for the airframe seemed like a steal! Looking to power it with a PowerUp 480 from HeadsUp and an APC 11x5.5E. I think it's going to be a rocket!

I have a Slick 43" and it flys really nice. I can preform simple aerobatics not a real 3d guy I just don't have the time to practice that kind of percision. So I am sure you will love your 3DHS bird.
