I'm going to maiden the P-47 today, if all goes well. The T-28 is about finished. Hopefully I'll be able to maiden it in a couple weeks when all the parts to finish it arrive, but my big project is a Comp-ARF P-51 that I'm just hoping to finish this year.

Hey Everybody,

I'm finishing up my 60-90 size Aeroworks Extra 330 that I made electric. It has a Rimfire 80 in it and can run 5S or 6S. I cannot wait to fly it ! ! ! ! ! I also just bought the new E-Flite Shoestring with the 1250KV E-lite 25 for it. My best friend has finished his and he did his maiden flight today. All I can tell you is OH MY GOD, THAT THING IS FAST! ! ! It is also a VERY SMOOTH flying airplane. I cannot wait to get mine together now, but it will be a while before I will have mine finished.

I hope everybody has a great flying season coming up........

David

I'll have three of 'em. Aeroworks Cessna 195 and ESM VAL are finished and TF Beech Staggerwing in final stages.
I'll post VAL and Staggerwing pics separately.

Wow, some nice birds here. I particularly like that Zero. It'll be on my short list when I build my first warbird, and that Cessna is gorgeous - Wouldn't mind it in my hanger either. I debuted a new Yak 54 this year and just finished my first electric and my first profile - A little AeroWorks Extra 260. After a day at the field with it, I know I'll always have an electric profile on hand just for fun.

Here is my ESM B-25 winter project. It has CJM retracts with robart wheels and brakes. It is powered with DLE 20's and has a Wingspan Models bomb drop. This is a replica of Doolittle's plane. It has the equivalent of 22 servos and four 3500 mAh nicads for power and nose weight.
