Talking GWS-15 Update

Finally, the jet is out of the paint shop. I slapped it together and took a few shots. Since the wife loves painting, I let her have a go at it. I did do the cockpit myself. Edwards paint scheme and not scale, but it should be fun.

Default Maiden Flight was Sweeet!

Plenty of power on hand launch at half to 2/3s throttle. Very little trim just a bit of elevator as she wanted to climb a bit. Excellent elevator control, turns great, rolls were a bit slow but scale like. Flew at half throttle easy but it was a low wind day. I took it up to 3/4 throttle and probably hitting 70mph or better. Flew for 10 minutes and brought her down smooth right on the belly not even a scatch on it. I am very happy to see it finally fly

Maybe I will get some pics and video Sunday if the weather holds.

Got a Radian Pro back in December and only been able to fly it once. I think my new summer plane is going to be an Eflite Ultimate Bipe 20-300 10e.

My newest is a remake of an old one I crashed last year...

It's a "new to me" 1/4 scale Great Planes Shoestring. The older bigger version, not the new one they make now.

Electrified of course with Scorpion power from gobrushless.com, Castle ICE HV80 ESC and Zippy or Turnigy batteries (whichever set is charged) JR Radio gear.

Just purchased this little fella, came in the post today. Its the only mini plane I could find running a 3s. Its tiny. Wing span of only 610mm. Just wanted a plane to easily chuck in the back of the car. We dont all drive those huge yank tanks!

Looks nice!

We have a grass runway but want a paved one. You guys have a paved runway but all three of you fly off the grass? How come?

We mostly use the runway. Those two sticks that came in while I was holding were practicing for a fun fly event we are having this weekend. The combat reload/bomb drop portion of the event, the guy on the field was reloading the "bombs" (lugnuts) so they were landing as close to the line as possible to make the fastest turn.

I land the Shoestring in the grass because it comes in so fast! The grass helps slow it down. If you'll notice in that vid I touched down at about the 100' mark of our 400' runway and even in the grass it rolled out to the end of the runway.

Most of the time you'll see me on the paved runway.

Heres my newest addition, I've got the rates dialed down until I get used to her. She a blast to fly and the setup from Headsup RC allows her plenty of vertical flying.

My newest is an Eflight Carbon Z Yak. Got it around Christmas, and still only 2 flights on it. Now if this is weather related, flying site related, or courage related I don't know. I guess I still fly my trusty T-28 more just because it's so darn convenient. Gotta love parkzone. Any other yak pilots out there?

Here's my newest plane, a scratch built Big Fat Ultimate. It replaced my E-Flite Ultimate Bipe. http://www.youtube.com/user/CaptGroovy#p/u/0/CiC9AI1KoJQ
