Luckily I am only out 1 plane and a motor shaft. The battery, motor, rx, servos, esc are all ok.

The Canard was repaired on the spot with some CA, kicker, and balsa dust. Not the prettiest, buit it flys again.

All Multiplex for some reason, they bounce off the snow without much damage:

Minimag, flew today at -5 degrees, trashed the prop on landing, dug into the snow, no gear but I might try the float to save on props!

Twin Star II, still up in a tree hanging out 50' up. It's just to cold to climb up and get it. Will get FPV gear someday.

Twister on the way, someday!

I was starting to ask what happened to the LA P-51. Then I remembered that one was your son's. Has he still got it?
Just noticed this . No he doesn't, the plane met its end .... via hanger rash .... was stepped on. Have the pictures though to remember it by!

I Added a Mini Pulse to my fleet about 3 weeks ago. I choked on the maiden flight and she went in shallow on take-off. Definitely repairable. I only paid $100.00 with 450BL, ESC and servos in it so I can at least put my Miss America Mustang in the air, hopefully in time for the AEF this weekend. I will at least have my Ventura (with a wheel converstion for the asphalt!) and my Red Baron Lazy Bee to fly. I might have my AT-802 ready but I would rather put a little stick time on it before this. If anything it will make for a nice display this weekend!

Default Super Cub

I mostly fly my Super Cub on one of the many lakes in my area. However, this winter I have a Gentle Lady (electrified) that I want to try on the lake, maybe this weekend.

I had a good time with the Long EZ. I was not flying it enough, so I sold it. I mixed the flaperons with the canard. WOW that was wild. I do not suggest doing that as I got some wild snaps.

There comes a time when you stop crashing your models. The airframes really arn't worth selling and the bits don't go bad. It represents 6 years of purchases.

What's really sad is I've got that beat by about 10 models, and I've only been doing it for 2 years!

A case of 6mm depron and a sharp xacto helps keep kit costs down though.
