How many build or want to?

A while back I injured a knee (is OK now) and was not able to work for a bit and I started to build balsa wood planes. It started with rubber band powered models and eventually progressed to electric RC. I have lots of plans and know were to find others for those who are interested. I will post some photos when I figure out how.

Re: How many build or want to?

Cool about you building foamies. I don't have permission to see any attached files for some reason. Here is a page that has links to all the threads I started at rcgroups they are mostly build threads for different planes I have built many from scratch or a short kit. What I like about this hobby is it provides both entertainment in building and then going out and flying and having that outdoor activity. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/search.p ... _%20Clancy

It seems there has been a lot of trouble with spam here.

Re: How many build or want to?

I enjoy flying RC planes FPV (first person view) with a camera and transmitter going to a headset that tracks my head motion.

A pair of un-painted Spitfires practicing formation flying.
A Spitfire dancing around a B-17 at dusk.
A B-17 above the clouds (the HD camera ran out of memory, so we had to use the ground station recording). Max altitude 4500ft. Airspeed does not indicate correctly.
A B-17 flies 3 miles then loses radio signal. Altitude at time of crash approx. 1300ft.

I also build combat model battleships armed with BB cannons.

Video 2
Video 3 (my personal favorite)

I've also tried sailing ships and Tamiya tanks, but not enough people would sail with me and I didn't have time to keep up with the tanks as well as everything else I was working on. I think I prefer to stick with Rise of Flight. Bloody April has been a blast!

Some very nice birds there Bauerknopfer. I too have been building WWI from foam recently. Here is a composite DV:

also an all foam very small Taube. .049 surestart for power:

And a freakish concoction I came up with combining a rogallo wing and a DR1-esque fuselage:

Re: How many build or want to?

I dunno, your Aviatik (or is it a Pheonix?) paint and details are pretty sharp for that scale! All three in fact....are very slick.

And thanks!

Yes, that big microwave sized radiator on the top wing made me go hmmmm, maybe its the Phonix....lol. I would love to see a video of that machine flying. I assume its electric......how does she handle?
