Default Let's see your Parkflyers!

Should be fun to see what people are flying! I've been flying for a couple months and I'm lovin' it! Here's my fleet thus far.

Lots of fun with all the planes so far. The Super Cub is getting upgraded to brushless, LiPo, and ailerons. The PZ F4U Corsair is stock and the Multiplex AcroMaster is my new favorite. It's got enough power to do pretty much any 3D maneuver, including hovering. 3S, 60A ESC, Turnigy 35-36C outrunner (400w), and 13x6.5 prop. It flies awesome and is very floaty!

Let's see yours!

That looks like a really nice float place to fly from! Are you on a lake or river?

Tyler, excellent idea, good looking birds. I will be visiting often to enjoy new pictures. My pictures are located on the next url. I haven't figured out how to add pictures using my web tv system so this is the best I can do for now.

Here are three of the planes I'm currently flying E-flite Eratix 25e, E-flite Diamante 25e, Parkzon Stryker 27C

Not pictured are a Parkzone Typhoon 2 and an E-flite Ultra Stick 25e (will post photos later on)

They all fly differently, so can't really pinpoint which is my favorite, although the Eratix is probably the most versatile and easy to fly.

Jismail, you make me want to get a warbird and an airbrush! I set you P-51 as my background; I highly approve of the roll of duct tape you used as a stand I love warbirds and I'd go get one now if it wasn't 0 degrees F outside. My field is covered in snow!

Uh, all you other people have really, really nice planes, too!

Of course, I have planes of my own, but no camera.

GWS Slow Stick
GP Synapse
GP Yak 55 Profile foamie
RCUBipe FlatOut
Homebrew balsa electric (I have yet to finish and name it)
4.5' Converted FF glider
4.5' Converted FF glider cut down to 24" WS and 23" long

Do AirHogs count?
Aero Ace bipe
Aero Ace bipe2
Aero Ace bipe3
Homemade micro w/ Rolling Fury elecs.

Glad you like it... I thought it turned out pretty good too!

It is a Phase 3 EF-16 falcon. It comes complete for 100 -130 bucks depending on who you get it from. it is an entry level, delta wing design that flys really well. I painted it myself as it comes just white foam.

Here are a couple more angles:




It is loosely based on one of the Air Defense Squadrons based in Alaska:

If you are refering to my post, it is the GWS Me-262. I started with white foam and did a 3 color camo top and a gull grey bottom. I used wet sponges to get the camo effect in the paint.

absolutely beautiful jismail, wish i had the nack for painting like that. you said it comes complete for 100 to 130 meaning rtf, arf or pnp? wouldnt mind getting my hands on one of those even if it was awhile before i flew it. the only thing i think its missing is some replica scaled missles on the wing tips . give it a ready for combat look, chris

I would call it ARF. It requires you to supply 2 servos, the battery and the Tx/Rx. It comes with the fan and motor.

Yep, that's the one! Fantastic paintwork! The effect you did with the sponges where the green blends at the bottom of the fuse is pretty much exactly what the real thing looked like! Beautiful!
