Default Here's Mine.

I hope it'll be an aerobatic slowflyer for weekday mornings and when they "forget" to turn the lights off at the Jr.HS softball/soccer field.
Powered by an ARC 20mm motor in a GWS gearbox with "A" gearing and a 11x4.7(?) prop.

I got this one from a fellow Watthead. Not sure of the original price. It is a .46 size glow model I'll be converting to the Watt side...:p

Hangar 9 .60-sized F4U Corsair electric conversion.

I am weak! I picked up 2 planes in the past 2 weeks. The first is the E-Flite Jenny (I'm a sucker for bipes, and I "needed" an indoor plane), the second a Miniflash, bought ready to fly from one of my club's younger members who is joining the Canadian Air Force (Good Luck, Mike), and needed a home for some of his rc stuff while he's away playing with the big toys. I already have several flights on the Miniflash, and am liking it more each time I fly it. It was a little twitchy at first, but after trying low rates for 1/2 a flight, I'm back to the high rates.
Brad.

Default Cool thread.

I got this for myChristmas present this year.
It's the E-Flite Brio 10. I got the combo package w/ the free Park400 brushless motor!

It took about 3 weeks of checking the Horizon web page to catch one in stock.

I can hardly wait to put it together!

What prop? Isn't 1500 watts a 20s max power for that motor? Which batteries?

Hi! back attcha, Mark. Good to see you on this forum, as well as the old one. I still go there almost daily, so see lots of your posts there. When it's wet and windy here (you know how it can be in the Pacific NW), I envy your warm, sunny locale.
Brad.

I dont have a Brio 10 but my friend dose and I flew his he has a park480(upgraded) in his and its a blast! I flew it with the park400 and after the upgrade to the 480 and it made a big difference, but even with the park400 in it it was a lot of fun to.
