It looks like I'm on vacation this week. So does that mean you want to fly on Wednesday? I'm game if you are.

T-28 flies quite nice with the Park 480 in it.

I know this is not an electric plane, but what do you notice about it?

Just installed the Rakon Heli conversion kit on my Blade 200QX. It was a bit of a pain, but totally worth it. I have inc the durability exponentially. It looks awesome as well, which doesn't hurt. Now I just have to re maiden it😎

Using a set of motors I salvaged off a crashed DC-3 foamy a friend found while on a construction site. I wonder if the crash was caused by the fact that both ESCs, on a Y-harness, still had all three wires connected. I have read that not disconnecting the red wire from one of them can cause BEC power issues. So, I pulled the red wire on one ESC lead and soldered up a Y adapter from deans to XT-60 and everything checked out fine.

Thanks😀 Yeah, it is a bit pricey. I ordered some additional LEDs and extra canopy for it as well. I decided to do this instead of getting the boat. I just remaidened it yesterday. It flew great and I love the adjustibilty options this frame offers.

Kool. Save your pennys and get a boat too. We've been having BIG fun on the water this summer. Distant second to things that fly but still big fun.

I might be interested in selling mine. I haven't even powered it on in about 4 years.
