Default Oh.. those spare parts

Ya know... If I had been obducted by aliens at one point... this would all make sense...

I have a pletiful collection of RTF electrics... which.. were good for something at one point.. but now sit... functional... in a basket near my bench..

this month is just going by tooo slow while I wait for the chance to get my P-38 repair parts...

Then I read about all the snazzy models that people are building... then I get impatient... then oooooh those spare parts start callin.... and my foam stash starts singin along...

then all at once... my computer found a 3 angle diagram of one of the most interesting bip's.. The Christen Eagle... then my little 4ch heli receiver says.. I can run a motor and 2 servos... then my printer says.. you can blow up the 3-view to a size which matches those little props you have in the box.. then the little razor says... what the heck are you still doing at the computer???

yet another.. not to be taken to seriously project..

my little Eagle..

more later... the wing foam is screaming at me...

ok... well I have used a good blob of hot glue, toothpicks and some bbq sticks..

Im done with the form.. tomorow I will put in the servos..

The pull of the motor is just a few grams short of the total weight..

it will look a little different when the servos are in but should go ok..

well... my aersonal of parts and pieces lacks a suitable paint... so I am going to make that eagle paint job in decal.. but in shades of green to match the foam... as if I did the green on purpose..

btw..

my gal said it was the cutest little plane she's ever seen.. and when it was just a fuselage... she said it looked like a little fat fishy... so her name is gonna be "Fishy"

had a little fun with it..

Fast build. I like it!!! I'm glad you did a built-up fuselage. Too many of these little planes are just beefed up singleply foam. I'll bet it's a real slow aerobatic little plane.

Please post the plans when you are finished.

Cool Oh yeah!!

Stinkweed,
That is an awesome little project! I hope fishy maidens well.

BTW are you getting any new snow today? I am near Wurzberg and we got another 2 inches last night.

Max, Ive been watching the weather... Because Im rolling to Wurz and Kitz in the morning. We dont get much snow in Bierstadt... except one or two bad white outs... are you in uniform?

Stink-bait... hmmmmmmmm theres something to that.....

She.. um... maidened... I think that little motor had more than I thought.. she was real hard to control.. but she flew none the less.. I gotta make it heavier I think.. because she wipped around alot when I gunned it.. Landing was a bit rough because of wind but... Fat Fishy survived!!!

Stinkweed,

I am still pretty new to RC flight and I can only imagine the feeling of flying an airpplane that you built from an idea. Hopefully one day I will be there myself.

Yes I am an Army Warrant Officer here. The roads are all in pretty good condition. But it is still snowing.

its all in good fun...

Max, I was in 121st and 17th there for a number of years... I'm surprised to hear anything is still running in that ASG. Was on Larson most of the time but have friends in the Leighton area.. (not to familiar with Gieb)

Chief,

Default no LHS

I have bought exclusuvely from the internet. Mostly Tower Hobbies and E-Bay. There is a good sized store in downtown Wuerzberg. But they are a little expensive. I can get the street address for you if you like. Ansbach also has a large toy store that has an RC floor. Thanks for the heads' up about the store in Kitzingen, I will have to check that one out!

I am in the building state of mind, too. I have a little Bird Dog kit ready for the next long weekend. It will be my first kit and I can hardly wait!

well... take it slow and do it right... take breaks when building.. it is a GREAT and rewarding hobby..

Chief,
You might want to hit the store in Wurz just to find out what Freq's you are reqired to use... some freq's from the states (tower and e-bay) can switch train tracks in DE... its just a crystal set (TX and RX) but thats a subject you NEED to be sure about..

Looking forward to the build thread of your plane...!!

Hey Stink,
This is the first I've gotten to see what you've been up too. What a great little bi-plane you have built. You didn't waste any time did you?

Good job!
