Default IMAC'ers

Just out of curiosity how many, and what types of planes do you guys have? I noticed at a recent event, that most of the hard core IMAC'ers only had one or two large scale birds (not that there is anything wrong with that) that they flew. Now I know, since it was an IMAC event that they might have left the other planes at home, so that is what peaked my curiosity.

I have a 33 % H9 Cap, DP Extra, Piedmont Foucs, and a ZNLine Synergy 90 3D.

Thanks,

Pugs

My IMACers currently are a H9 Extra, Midwest Extra, and DP Extra. At the last contest I only brought the H9, but for the next one I'm going to try to bring the MW as well. I like flying these planes over the DP because they are gas burners, making it much cheaper to practice and compete. One thing I can say is if you only bring one model to a contest, try to have enough tools and extra parts to deal with any contingency. At the last contest I went to, two 8411 servos were stripped when the owner was towing it out and hit the elevator against a fence. He had spare servos in his car and was able to replace them and still compete.

Default Hey....

Thanks for the response.....

I guess what I was asking is, what OTHER types of planes do you own and enjoy flying.....

I hear you about during the competition. I'd hate not being able to fly due to a failure. I keep 2 8411's in my flight box......

Oh I gotcha, I also have a Kyosho Majestic (THE best flying 40 size plane, period), a UCD, a PBF, QHOR, Cub on floats, T-33 EDF, and a NWHT Gee Bee Y. Of those planes the PBF and QHOR get the most air time when I just want to relax and have fun at the field.

...well, for IMAC I'm flying a H9 Edge 540 for now, looking to go bigger for a better chance to compete.

Other planes are: TF Giant Scale P-51D Mustang (84", check my photo gallery for pics), MW Giles 202 (78"), Giant Scale Planes Cap 232 (96", on the shelf, heavy as a rock), John Orner X-700 (.40 size fun-fly, makes the .40 H9 Ultrastick look like its in reverse), Goldberg Ultimate (58"), Scratch built Ron Chigy TigerTail (80"), Cermark Pitts S2B (1/4 scale ARF), Morris the Knife, Scratch built Partnavia Spartacus Twin (88"), and a Scratch built Piper Malibu Mirage (80").

Pugsley,

I have a Speed 400 electric Ryan F8F Bearcat. It is a blast to fly. I am changing out battery packs before the Columbus IMAC so that I can fly it on Saturday night (the old one is a bit down on power). It is a real performer and a HOOT to fly. Looks dead on like the real thing.

And Jim Ryan, the designer and kitter, is a good friend of mine. So I couldn't help but plug his offering!

For IMAC - 40% Carden Edge


Just for the fun of it - 1/4 scale Balsa USA J3 Cub - worn out, beat up and a blast to fly in the evenings. Couldn't sell it for $100 and wouldn't take less than $1000 for it!

Just for the challange of it - 4 Meter Duo Discus scale sailplane with self-launching system. Hasn't flown yet - hopefully this week. Totally different style of flying than the Edge - keeps me from getting into a rut!

Just for the time with my kids - 40 size trainer - they love it. Nothing better than having your son or daughter ask you to take them flying!!!

Just for the carnage of it - .25 size Gremlin combat. Been in 4 mid-airs and still flying. Has more duct tape (aka Kentucky Chrome) on it than a 79 Dodge!!!

Just for the backyard - 30 size Kyosho Concept Heli - still has the daughter's hoola-hoop on it!!!

See ya at the Nall Pugs!

Hey Hubb ---

Did you finish the PH3D yet??? I haven't started mine yet. Too busy flying the Edge and getting the sailplane set up. I am a bit burnt out on building right now....I might save it for the winter.

Default Hubb...

I hear ya on the Focus. Just putting the finishing touches on mine. Using a 3M 140, greve pipe, and Futaba digitals all around.

Now, if I can fly it 1/10th as good as the previous owner I'll be happy.

Now, let's talk. Since the Focus is your fav.....you should be ready to unload that Radiocraft of yours....

Keith,

I am awaiting good weather / time off to fly the PH3D. should be a blast! whattya mean you might wait till winter to build yours?? I scratched mine out in about 2 weeks off and on. you got one of them fancy kits with all the hard work done for you!! it should go together in 2 days!

Pugs,

we might have to talk about the Radiocraft - later in the year though . The Staudacher has been treating me well so far - and its supposed to be the back-up!!

you will LOVE the focus. we'll compare notes at the Dayton contest.

Hubb
