Another plane for sale:
FMS/Airfield P-47 foamie with electric retracts. I pulled the retracts and raked them foward for better stability on our gras runway.
Last flown 2 weeks ago.

Flies with a 4S 3300mAh pack. I can sell a pack with it if you don't have one.
$75 w/o Reciever, but if you fly spektrum, I can make a deal

I have one of these:
http://www.nitroplanes.com/93a182-sk...rf-v3-red.html

$75 all ready to go. Just add your own Rx.
I pulled some of the stickers off and put a slightly larger nose wheel and took the wheel pants off so it will work on the grass better.
Uses a 3S 2200mAh LiPo. I'll throw in a battery and a cheap charger with it.
It has flaps on it but that is not really even needed for it. If you want it more stable in the wind, I can set up and throw in a piezo gyro for the ailerons as well.

This is the only video I have of my plane flying. It was a keychain cam I had holding it in my teeth, so most the flight was edited out

It has been suggested that we post a link to the FSA website for the monthly newsletters. Therefore, make it so.
[link=http://www.freestateaeromodelers.org/]http://www.freestateaeromodelers.org/[/link]

Dave has also finished the web page on servo linkages with the spreadsheet.

Hi guys,
I have the 700e kits just about ready and I thought I would share a couple of pictures.

First is the kit contents. The other two are instruction drawing that will be included in the kit.

The links are of the ball pin being lathe cut on a milling machine out of stainless steel... The parts
need to be hand finished and threaded but cutting the ball pin is cool to watch. Kind of hard to
wrap your head around programming a lathe cut on the mill. You have to turn your head sideways
a lot! LOL

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9sYGs...0tHqu9A_i7mVzg

This link is the build and testing of version 1 and now 2. Skip to post 65 for the newest version.

http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=436678

I have a lot more drawing and details on my facebook page if you are interested.

GREAT WEATHER this morning. Had the Nieuport 17 out flying, but my head was just not in the game!
With a stroll in the field, I was able to collect my thoughts!

Considering it's a $3000+ radio (let's call it "ridiculously expensive") then $1900 (current bid) would only be considered "incredibly expensive". You'd have to work your way down to just "expensive" for me to get in the game!

PS - anyone going out to the field on Thursday or Friday?

If I go out to the field on Thursday my wife would probably cut them off... you know what I mean.

However Friday I might. Let me know if you plan on going and I will take the beast out

Btw, this is pretty cool: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=J8OtEoBXuxU#!

Watching "Billy the Kid Unmasked" on the Military channel, there pops up our club member Jerry Richards doing some testimony on photo evidence.

Are we planning an END-OF-THE-WORLD FLY-IN? It does strangely seem appropriate. With the end of the world fast approaching, maybe we should expire some planes on the 21st. Is there an exact time for the end, or is that to be determined?

What plane are you planning to bring for your last flight?
