Well I kept looking at it ... sort of liked the square fuz idea but also sort of didn't like it !!

My Hummer is battered and due for revamp ... so I thought I'd strip out the gear and mount to this :

Looking for a model to replace my beaten up Hummer ... having had 2 of them - though time for a change (plus as everyone knows - even the badly damaged gets eventually rebuilt by me !! so both Hummers still in the hangar).

I decided to go for the Hobby King MX2 EPP ... actually its the Skywing small job with ply frame and EPP skin.

The gear from my Hummer is spot on for it ... so it was a quick swap over ...

Interesting that HK have introduced an unnecessary error into the build instructions ... to install stab and then cut rear of fuselage to install elevators. Skywing original say to install elevators through slot - THEN stab ... with no need to cut anything.







Here she is all up ready ..



just needs an alloy spinner to add a bit of weight forward to edge the CoG forward ....

I did want to fit my HE A3 Super II stabiliser to it but its finding a slot where the leads etc. don't interfere with canopy.

AUW with 1750 3S, 2836 1100kv, 11x5.5E, 30A ESC.... 720gr ... well within tolerance ..

Looking fwd to flying this baby...

Cool. I'm mainly only flying jets these days. Have a couple of new ones:

The FMS 70mm F/A-18 Super Hornet and the highly acclaimed Freewing 80mm Avanti S.

Both are fast (> 100 mph) and fy great. I've also converted my VF-111 Sundowners Freewing 90mm F4J Phantom II from 6S to 8S. Now she fly's more like a Mach 2 fighter.

All are grass capable.

This just shipped today, and I should have it early next week. Going to repaint it into an East German Air Force scheme.

Cool. I vacillated between the Avanti and L-39. Have two small version L-39's that don't compare I know. Thwy must have arrived in the same container.

I deliberated a few days as I was not really keen on an L-39. But after watching the vids and seeing how it compares in size to even some 90mm offerings, I was convinced. I'm going to do this to mine:
