Stupid facebook. (Or stupid Saget). But the video should work now....
New indoor toy , 25 bucks to deter a little boredom ! Bought it at Privateskinner.com , great fun !
That looks like fun!!!
The cats are not liking it ! I am not sure if its the heli or the soundtrack to "Apocolypse Now" blaring in the background !
Hopefuly, "Santa" will be droppign off a Phoenix 2000 powered glider and an RC air boat this year.
That's why I'm not allowed to have such things.
Cats , better shot than seen! They are also known as self propelled dog food!
Dusted off the old slash the other day.....thinking of going back up and checking out the indoor dirt track....they just made it much bigger...
I am still waiting for all the components to finish my Honcho , I buy things spread out so the wife doesnt bitch as much .
I want to get a SC truck so bad , but the nearest track is 2 hours away ! Not sure if it's worth it or not.
I'm messing around with an AirHog Vector heli. It's such a blast, I'm looking at a Syma S110G Heli:
It's the little guy, although the S107 is pretty cool. Pretty inexpensive fun!
Based on the experiences i've had, the blade heli is a nice one and the ones you have a picture don't compare. I have a blade MCX and a chinese brand that looks like the ones above. The Blade is way nicer and way more fun. The ones above are a waist of cash to me. I'd rather spend the extra money and get a nicer unit. It think the main reason for that is the prop setup.
Just finished completely recovering this Model Tech Blue Max thanks to a busted fuel tank...
Similar to the original scheme, with a few more appealing touches, plus checkerboard on the wings.
Pretty happy with the way this one turned out.
Should be flying it this weekend.
Next up to finish, my 3D cub...
The S107 is on its way for $26. From all that I have read, it's a fun steady flying little heli. For that price, I could always upgrade and make the S107 a back up/ spare. Parts are cheap too. The Air Hog is going to get retired. It was my late fathers, it's styrofoam, I've repaired it quite a few times and I don't want to destroy it. I did have a pair of the hogs that can shoot each other down, which was fun, but they got ruined.
Did the tank make it burst into flames?
Bet it just started leaking.....should go electric....them batteries never have any problems
Just kidding....and I am an electric fan boy.
Nothing quite so exciting, thank doG...
We bought it used the previous day, and had it out for it's first couple of flights, when we discovered it...
We stripped it down, dried it out, and recovered it.
I don't mind the electrics, I have a few of them, even.
I just don't like to wait for batteries to charge...
Nothing beats the sputter of a good old 4 stroke..
I like my electric planes, got rid or converted my gas planes. I just found it so much cleaner...charge a few packs and out I go. Biggest electric I have is a P-39 convertion.
Dodged a bullet the other day with one of my planes. She went totally dead, but by some mirical she glided in and only knocked the gear loose. When I went and picked he up the ESC reset. Turns out the positive lead was never soldered properly. Got he home, cut the heat shrink off teh ESC and this is what I had.
Pretty sure the only thing that was ever holding the positive wire in place was the heat shrink! A quick solder job, a bit of heat shrink and all was good again.
