More Shots from the Field….

Our new E-flite Cessna 150 Aerobat, 85″ span, 4-6S battery pack , so far we are getting four 6 minute flights on a 5000mAh battery leaving 30% !  It has SAFE AS3X gyro system in the receiver making it extremely stable.  Flaps make it super slow on landing.  And the light system makes it super realistic!

Here’s a video of Dylan landing at Dusk:

Father and Son build Complete!

Hey all! My son Dylan and I are excited to share our winter build project we recently completed.  I wanted to share with my son the experience of actually building a kit, versus an ARF.  Indeed, I did end up doing a majority of the project myself ( it’s the age of instant gratification ya know), but Dylan still has enough ownership in the airplane to give a hoot.

Our project plane is the Great Planes Piper Cub, .40 size.  I figured the cub was a great classic trainer to be his first gasser, and he tends to like scale airplanes the most.  We have powered it with an ASP .61FSR 4 stroke, added some scale goodies like Robart main gear, and control it with a Futaba 6J system and a Hitec XG3XA, 3-axis stabilizer to smooth it out. By the way, I highly recommend the Hitec Gyro!  It’s only $30 and works really well, especially in foamies!

Covering is 21st Century Fabric, pre painted in Cub Yellow.

If you care to see more of the project, I wrote a thread on RC Universe for the whole project : Forum Link

We have flown the plane, and so far it flies really well!  Even Dylan has some time on the sticks and he loves it!

Here are some pictures of the completed Cub, Dylan took all of the inflight photos, he’s getting pretty good at those! :
