No flying yet. I have a half finished PKJ and a half finished Slick on my bench right now. Too much going on in my life outside of the RC world (yes, there is such a thing!). Mostly good stuff, but I...

I'll finish this baby tonight (it's been delayed a bit because of the gorgeous Slick i received), but you guys scare the cr*p out of me with your stories on how difficult it is to launch. Then again,...

Uuuuhhh... Elevons, that's right... Didn't think of that. The only solution I could think of would be to use an external mixer and hook up the gyro to the aileron channel before the mixer.

The decals are from a HobbyZone Super Cub. My first (and thoroughly crashed) plane! I had a spare sheet of decals I thought I should use.

And so it begins... Everything stock so far, except the decals and the motor mount. The only paint I had in my garage was black and gold, so that's what I'm going with. Extra credits for figuring out...

I love that idea and I have a couple of HK-gyros that I was going to use for a camera rig I never found the energy to build.

So I will definitely experiment! I'm thinking rate mode would be enough...

I would definitely say it has more space. Judge for yourself. Flying limits are the tree lines. I'd say the length of the field is over 1000ft (edit: It's more like 1200ft). Edit again: If found the...

I think I'm going for a much smaller prop than you, though. 4.1x4.1 seems appropriate for 5000kv @ 11.1V IMHO. Lots of RPM = good pitch speed at minimal torque. But that's all in theory. Maybe I...

It's here! A lot smaller than I had imagined. I'm going for a modest 200W setup just to get the feel for it. Then I'm probably going for a 480W 5000kv Exceed motor... *wrrrrrrooooom*

Gosh... You're just so generous I'm not even sure I can accept your offer... But then again... I'm sure I'll need a spare fuse at some point...

If you're really serious, I can send you a PM.

It takes regular 9g servos, right? I have a bunch of 9g towerpros sitting around. I'll use the recommended 3500kv 200W motor to start with....

I've been eying that one for a while. You have to tell me how it works out!

And, while we're at it, we have to do some flying together before the season is over! I'm only a 45 minute drive away...
