Getting Planes Off The Back Burner
 
4 Attachment(s)
Hi Everyone :ws: I bet We All Have Project planes on the Back Burner :red: I Have a F-20 that I have not Maiden yet, its been on the back burner for a while, I need to install a servo and spring dampener servo saver for it, and make the front landing gear, thats finally going to happen, my only excuse is that my son dropped the top half of a small kitchen hutch on my left leg while we were moving it, that really messed up my left leg, That set me back about 3 months :eek: ouch, its better now, so now, i feel like doing more :ws: LOL.

I have a Gee Bee that I designed with large control Surfaces and a Big Hell Cat, ( Excuse the dust on it and the retract holes in the wing, and the Red Bra Strap holding it Up :red: ::o :D ) That I designed that I want to finish up, here are a few pics of them, List your Back Burner projects Too ;) Take care, Chellie

My first plane actually lol. An SU-47 from HK. It was when I had the mindset that my first plane should be one with no prop...makes sense...no prop, can't break the prop. I no doubt could actually fly it now, but I have to get around to wiring up two escs to one battery connector, and have to buy more motor wire extensions, and 1000000C batteries...maybe just 45C, of which I have one of, would be fine. I also have to make the dang batteries fit.

Your lucky :ws: Only one plane on the back burner :D I have a few more planes on the back burner, but its to Embarrassing to list then all :red: :red: :red: :red: :oops: :oops: :oops: LOL, My Only Excuse is ADD :Q Thats my story and I am Sticking to it :D Take care, Chellie

Well I no doubt will have more when I started getting more into building. I am having a back burner to flying itself, however, with all of this Arctic weather. A few days of above freezing, but too windy, now this weather...and still windy. I suspect that my Radian Pro will be on a flying back burner the most often. There will be days when I want relaxing flight, or rather flight where I can toss the plane around for 30 minutes and not have to worry if the battery will die, but I prefer scale flight of the warbird variety more so. Well...maybe not quite scale speed, but at least scale looking. It is odd though how difficult it is not to buy a new plane, or look for new ideas for a build. I look at one plane and think how it will feed the need of flying/building. Then it is built, and then it is flown, and then I see something else interesting, of which is not simply a want, but somehow a need almost. Perchance it is merely the weather bringing about this bank account debacle; there is a scarcity of things to do in winter.

I have to find a good job and then get completely tired of the job before retirement can happen at all lol. That is, unless I came across a large sum of money, and I would do things that I wouldn't consider jobs (except perhaps raising children) but tell others they are, including playing music, collecting/ building classic cars, carpentry. Then retiring would be doing the same things as before and stop calling them jobs.

Now that the winter tme is coming to an end, I can put the simulator away and get back to the back burner planes. One is an FT Flyer that has a stearable nosewheel and a FT Old Speedster. After some time of searching R/C sites my friend and I have located a set of planes to build a Little Red Dragon. It will take some time though as the instructions are in German, :)

carpetbagger 03-16-2014 10:31 PM

Lots of planes on the back burner, or as I prefer "under construction". I jumop around the backlog depending on my mood - glider today? Nah, go with little planes. Of course I mentioned relocating to the Outer Banks (OBX) and now the Commander has issued her list of stuff I have to get rid of, stuff on the house to fix for sale, etc, etc . . .

Hmm, OBX, I'll have to check out float plane plans!

propnut48 03-17-2014 05:35 AM

I'm in the same boat too. I have a Sig Cub that I've been tinkering with since I moved to Cali. in 1978. It's mostly framed and even built the motor box for the E motor instead of the. 25ci it normally takes. Life has gotten in the way, with kids and grand kids and starting my own business. No free time anymore t build. Arf's have been a godsend. I want to finish it though. 71" span and should top out at 3lbs all up.
