you SoCal guys are CrAZy lol.


hows the 262? I saw your taxi tests...thats one beautiful piece of work there.

Casey


Casey

The 262 is still in ground testing phase. So far I have blown 2 Castle HV110 and 1 Lipo pack....both failures of the Castle HV110 was CASTLE equipment failure and NOT USER ERROR!!! I have ranted about this on my other forum, so I wont hijack this one with my rant. Like the real 262 the main issue is the engines and getting my setup to run as advertised. Everything is so tempermental, and unless your a factory pro guy with a never ending supply of gear for free....then the learning curve on this project hurts. I am ready for the maiden once again...and now have to wait for our test field to dry out (see photos above). Good or bad...I will post the results.

Just got off the phone with Jose, my 109 is INCOMMING oh yeah!

can't wait to get it! I'll make sure to do a thread on it when it comes in.

Thanks Todd for helping me make up my mind. Jose seems like a great guy, and I'm glad to do business with him!

That would be the one that I'm leaning towards....but, I have to keep in mind that where I fly I'm surrounded by the Sierra's. Browns and winter schemes will be hard to see here, but a dark green camo I've found shows nicely against the mountains.

dunno.

Come on down Casey... The Dry... errr currently Wet lake is where we do our maidens and the crucial 5-10 "burn in your brain" test flights. Pandi belongs to [link=http://www.pvmac.com/]PVMAC[/link] (Pomona Valley Model Airplane Club) and I belong to [link=http://www.vvrcf.org/]VVRCF[/link] (Victor Valley R/C Flyers

The Dry Lakes are probably the safest way to test fly any bird. The main reason is if the engine craps out you can put'R down anywhere. And yes... Just point'r into the wind and let'R rip!

Please talk me out of this...

I'm about to pull the trigger on some Don Smith plans, laser parts and cowls for a 111" Henschel HS-129 B-1 Panzerknacker.

Enlarged HENSCHEL 129B
Power 1.4 - 1.8 Wingspan 111 in. Length 76.54 in.Wing Area 1720 sq. in.
Full Wood Kit $445
Short Wood Kit $375

Thanks....those are close. I was hoping to see how they did the top of the wings paint and where the Russian Stars where. I will have to get the book regardless though.
