Great Planes Dynaflite Up-Start 2M - $20 Shipped

I'm all electric now, so it's time for the Upstart to move on. This is the smaller model for wingspans of 72" or less. There's a little dirt on it and the edges of the parachute are slightly...

Stevens Aero DiddleBug Goes Brushless

I haven't seen too many of these around lately, but I just dug mine out for a remodel and I've been having a blast! This time around I made it kind of an HD version to help keep it together out here...

Convert it to a jump plane? C182s are real popular with smaller skydive outfits. Maybe you could get a parachute guy to swing up with the door somehow and blow off in the slip stream.

Thanks for your interest and good luck with the build. The whole thing goes together in about three or four hours, so it isn't a real hard build. Mine weighs about 2 pounds 8 ounces ready to fly on...

I meant to put these up with the video, but here are the plans I used to build this thing if anyone is interested. The plan is a full 36" x 48" sheet in the PDF, so you might need to get the newest...

Nice work! Adding that texture makes a huge difference in getting it to look like the real one (cool comm antenna too). A while back, I saw someone putting sheets of aluminum foil between a couple...

First Flight: AP Pober Pixie

The spares bin was getting close to an airplane's worth of stuff, so I threw together a dedicated AP/AV rig. It started as a Pober Pixie 3-view and I just kept hacking on it until I ended up with...

I'm not familiar with the specific aircraft, but I'll try to get in the ballpark. The old 100-watts-per-pound trick is a good place to start, so around 225 watts is probably reasonable depending on...

I'm pretty sure it's a Waco product, maybe a UBF? It looks like is has the Continental motor, so it might be a UMF without a cowl I guess. Yours looks great!

I tried one out this spring and I really liked it too. I wanted to get the weight down even more, so it has no paper and a single 30" spar behind the step. There's a standard 10g motor on the front...

In theory, you're correct; if you flipped a servo, you could get both ailerons to move the same. If they are full-span, they'd probably work fine as flaps. The problem I see is actuating the flaps...

Yeah, it's a great one, probably the best I've ever seen. It has a C-90 hanging on the front too, so 25 extra horses. Nice detail on the exhaust! If a radial motor isn't throwing oil everywhere,...

Mine are balsa struts, 1/16" I think, with little strips of it as the jury struts. It ended up okay, but those tiny pieces were a pain to work with. Good find on the carbon rod. That should look real...

You mean something that holds the airplane up while you work on it? If so, this is what I ended up doing. Scrap MDF, a Tupperware lid and some pipe insulation and there you go, beats paying $60 for...

I agree with JetPlane, the weight savings of the smaller motor is a good thing, in addition to using a smaller battery. The real RV-4 is only a 900 pound aircraft empty, which is what makes it so...

It does lower the nose a little, but on that one I also had 2.75" bushwheels on so it evened out. The actual tailwheel is only $3 and takes about five minutes to install with a little epoxy.
