Picked up a couple new toys on my lunch break.. A guy on RCGroups selling a bunch of stuff locally.

An F22 with twin 64mm ducted fans:



It's got seperate servos on the elevator so I can mix for some crazy roll rates. Can't wait to try this one, going to need a bigger trunk! hahaa

And also picked up an Eflite 4Site from the same guy. It's BNIB and not built yet:


It's an indoor pattern/F3P type ship. Looks real fun to fly.

The best part, both for $85!

Storms finally went away yesterday....got a chance to fly a little bit.

Still looking for my next plane....leaning real hard to the FMS Zero.

I have become quite the FMS fan boy lately....man I am loving that P51B

Got a few more flights in the FMS P51B....if you guys are looking for a bigger WWII plane this thing is just fantastic....a few pics in my messy basement (after new lights installed)...you can see a few projects going on...that darn adhd stuff makes it impossible to single in on one project.

Love that P51!!

Here's a video from today - playing with my buddy's GoPro3 and slow motion.
Flying my Hunter Vtail quad, and my buddy's Apprentice 15e. He asked me to do something "REAL CRAZY".. Not much you can do with an Apprentice that's real crazy, so I landed it upside down. hahaha

I'm surprised that Apprentice has enough elevator authority to fly inverted with that much dihedral!

Dunno if any of you saw this. For the classic dirt runners here.
RC10 Gold Pan re-release. Not crazy about the 6 gear tranny and short
length A-arms but it's still fun!

That is pretty cool....A few years ago I took my stealth tranny gold tub to a local dirt track...brushed motor, FM radio and all, and did some whoopin on the "modern" cars. I ran IIRC 5000 lipo batteries had the thing geared to the moon, and just ran the snot out of it. Broke a few old ball cups, but after that I was good to go. The car really took the bumps very well....If I was not so rusty I would have cleaned house. Think the extra weight really helped it on todays type track.....everyone...and I do mean everyone was watching the old car go around the track...it was VERY fast. Don't have to worry about dumping like you did in the old days.

This was my second flight with it, and the wind was pretty gusty - so not that smooth! Still tuning the flight controller but it's pretty good right now..

I just completed my 2-for-1 glider and a tricopter. Looking forward to the first flights.

Putting together a bud's Hangar 9 95" Skylane.
Most likely will be electric, unless I can get him to put a G26 or DLE-30 on it...
