Default Condor Hobbies Flying Machine Contest

PLEASE SUBMIT YOUR ENTRIES TO THIS FORUM FOR THE CONTEST

Condor Hobbies is a newest RC manufacture/supplier of an exclusive line of RC aircraft, helicopters, and ground vehicles to join this amazing industry. In preparation of opening our website we are giving away one of our exclusive aircraft (The Flying Machine) and a new Aurora 9 radio and receiver as an introductory contest exclusively on RC Universe.

We are looking for an additional paint scheme for this new aircraft and if we select your scheme for production (and can achieve the rights for it for those using copy written material) we will build your custom designed aircraft for the RC community.
You can provide as many entrees as you want and if your scheme is selected, all rights to your design become the exclusive rights of Condor Hobbies and your design will be listed on our Pre-registration page located at www.IWantMyFM.com

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD BLANK AIRPLANE TEMPLATE

If we select your design and you have pre-registered for a Flying Machine prior to submitting your design on this thread, you will also receive 5 additional HS 5625MG Hitec servos. Pre-registration is not required to win the contest. Just a bonus.
We have provided a template in JPG format but you can find additional HD pictures located at: http://www.eagle-i.us/FM_Images/index.html

Contest will run through August, 2011 to give everyone a chance to submit their entrees. Good luck and let your freak flag fly.

ok, so here is my registration for the color scheme contest.

I am pre-registered for the ARF, of course

I beleive this was close to the "red" test scheme when the FM first came out.

I did it this way just because Red is my Favorite......not much different than the "Stock" scheme, but hey, It looks good!

Game on!

Here's my submission. Are you particularly looking for just a 'paint scheme' of the ZAP layout or? Will submit a ZAP version also, if that's the case. Enjoy!!

Took in consideration the fallowing:

Easy to mass produce
Catchy colors
It helps in orientation.

The idea is to add curves and take away the atention from all the rough edeges of the design and try to give a fresh look.

Sorry for my lack of graphic computer experience but think it gives an idea.

Another idea. For this, I can guarantee the logo will be available. TRX, Inc. is a travel technology corporation (which I work for) and has approved my use of the logo for this contest.

Hi,

Sorry for not using your template, this is my proposed colour scheme, I have used it on a 37% Yak 55 model and all I can say is WOW.
Hope you like it.

Best regards
Mario

Here's another design. I like the red and black with white stripes a lot, but I think it would work in many other colors. Maybe more color ideas to come.

HOG colors Wouldn't require trademark if you change to a similar, but not HARLEY orange.

Wolley....Dude, if you're new to RC, I have to tell you that this particular bird IS NOT NEW PILOT FRIENDLY!!! It is super fast,
super quick.

I know it looks great, but trust me, this bird IS NOT a trainer!!!
