Build Review My Stuff

I found it. Don't remember if Chellie said where the thread was...

We'll see how long this thread lasts...

So, here's my STUFF:

Stuff That Flies:
E-flite Blade 400 - not much air time yet, yes it's a Blade 400 - I did a custom canopy, the old canopy is going back on it for practice this spring
E-flite Blade CP Pro - controller went out on it & was replaced, quite a bit of rebuild after that last crash
E-flite mini Ultra Stick -I'm on my third, DX7 failure & ARF kit fall apart in mid air, the PNP setup stinks so I put a 480 motor in it
LightFlite Bug - FUN! it's what started it all, fully 3D & combatable, that's a friends TRex in the photo
MS Composit Unique - putting a better motor on it
MS Composit Swift II - darn thing handles 30mph winds
Micro Mosquito - one of the first micros, it hovers...
Parkzone Vapor - almost indoors if I had more room
Under Construction:
E-flite Blade mCX - pictured with the Balde 400, great little indoor heli but I modified it to go FAST and this is what happens, things are backordered until the first of the year 2009
Great Planes Ultimate - the Ultimate Biplane
Great Planes Wright Flyer - I'm going counter rotating brushless with this, don't plan on flying it a lot
GWS B2 - foamie ducted fan bomber
Scorpio Condor Magic 29 - a 2.9M Hotliner Glider I got at a swap meet, needs a little work, no longer manufactured
misc Glider - just a glider I bought at the local Mega-Mart, a micro glider conversion I've been working on, way too overpowered the first time around
Gone & Good Riddance:
Great Planes FlatOut Reflection - was a lost cause, I set it up like it said and... GP has discontinued this junk
The Future:
My Own Business
Aerial Photo Heli
E-flite Ultimate
No More RC Clubs - I'm doing UN-CLUBS from now on and Parks - that's why they're called Park Flyers after all & 2.4GHz will be no problem like 72MHz

I guess that thread I did a few days back scared everyone off.

I meant to stir the pot with my thread and did not expect it to last.

Lets not do the same with this thread.

Caltrop....

You've got a pretty nice collection of flying stuff. I'm impressed.

Stirring pots is ok now and then. Even a necessary thing once in a while. The previous thread you refer to was shut down as it was basically just arguing in circles and going no where. One may even have seen it as trolling. We are all above that here at WattFlyer. At least I hope we are.

Please leave the animosity out of this thread. Chellie started what I think is a great thread to for lack of better language 'out' the lady flyers in our midst. Please keep this thread on topic as I think this will show us what you gals are doing and indeed capable of.

Sorry for the semi-rant. Chellie, thanks for the post.

Ladies, let's see those planes and helis!

Ya know what's really funny Cal is that until you made that thread I had no idea you were a woman... up until then I thought you were just another one of the guys... go figure...

But you still are "just one of the guys" as far as I'm concerned.

Nice Wright Flier by the way. How does it fly? I have always been curious about them

Default Wright Flyer

As it is it's kinda slow. It is not an exact replica of the original so it flies a bit better with real ailerons and elevators and a slightly longer frame.

I'm going to scrap the brushed motors & NiMH batteries and put some real motors & batteries on it. I'm putting E-flite 180 motors on it and counter rotating them with some APC props. I originally planned to put the 250 motors on it but after doing some calculations I don't think I'm going to do 3D with a Wright Flyer.

Great Planes quit making the Wright Flyer this year so if you see one on the shelf you'd better grab it. In fact most of the planes have been changed up this year especially with the popularity of electrics growing.

Like I said I'm not going to fly the Wright Flyer a whole lot - it's a scale replica and I don't want it crashed.

Yeah it seems like a good novelty flyer but something you wouldn't take to the field everyday.

It's a looker though.

Hi Mike yes i agree with you sometimes you have to rock the boat a Little Its one of my favorite past Times I thought it would be nice to see what the Gals are flying and building, and to know who the Women of Wattflyers are, I did not know that Caltrop was Female, its hard to tell by a Screen Name Thats Why I started this thread, I would like For the Gals of Wattflyers to get together, and Share Ideas on Planes and help each other out, with power systems and find out where the Best Sales are on Hobby Stuff Take care, Chellie

Hi Mike,

The zlin is made by YT International & they say its 59" span....in fact it's 63" span. My partner flew it a couple of days ago & he had a bouncer on landing, the wheels ripped off, so he said it needs ground thats not so bumpy for take offs & landing, all fixed now though & here's a video of her in flight:-
