I've been working hard on finalizing my new hobby-room/workshop and also managed to get the thumb into the table saw. As thumb flyer it's a bad combination so there has not been any flying before a small test this weekend. This is the first flight with my injured thumb and it went great, not much to complain about.

 
My next flight did not go as well as this one. Was flying together with my son and did something that resulted in a lot of pain in the thumb and crashed straight down in the frozen tarmac.

Video of the crash is coming later this week so don't forget to subscribe so you want miss it.
 

Hope you like the video.

This is the first time me and my son is flying together, however did it not end quite as we had planned.

I'm flying with an injured thumb after a brief encounter with my table saw, and did something that resulted in a lot of pain so I couldn't manage flying. So absolutely a pilot error. The damage was fixed in about 30 min, just one ski, propeller and one Wing Strut broke. The Wing Strut was an easy fix to.

The conclusion is that Durafly Tundra can defiantly take a beating.

After 12 years gave the system with one servo for the ailerons on the Multiplex Magister up. In high speed did they locked themselves up because of the airflow over the wing so that it could not make a turn or get out of a turn you were already in. So I've now built into two standard Futaba servo with short straight pushrods that should not bend or give under load.

Here is the very first test flight after the rebuild.

We have since last summer worked a little now and then to build my new hobby room / workshop. Now it's finally done and I can begin to move in some equipment, planes and other accessories. But there are still a lot of equipment, tools and not least the rest of the models (10-15 models) that still has to be moved in. I have been asked to make a video of it and I also wanted to show off my new little "Man Cave", so here's a little video of how it looked from when we started and until it was done with its my own design and solutions.

Hope you like the video.

Hi BK. Congratulations, you have done a fabulous job there. Looks like you have thought of everything. It has been well thought out, and really well built. Only thing missing is fridge to keep some beer, you deserve it. Cheers

A small video of my Diamond 2500. Got an urge to test it as it's long time since I flew a gliders last. So we went out in the winter cold with 5-6 ms wind. Blew pretty good up high, so much that I could soar pretty good on the cross wind. Was just a short flight due to cold fingers after just a 10 minutes flight.

Hope you like the video.

My nephew had some really bad luck and crashed his STM DHC-2 Beaver hard in June 2015. When I heard that he had ordered a new one and would throw the old one did I say that he could give the broken one to me so I could see if it was possible to repair it. Now have I put together this puzzle and made new pieces and new motor mount that were either lost or could not be repaired. Yesterday did it flew again for the first time in nearly two years, almost everything can be repaired if one tries.

Link to the video where he crashes it exists in the video's description on YouTube.

Hope you like the video.

Wanted to test the soaring characteristics of this model, so I took it up quite high. After 7 minutes of flying had I only use the engine for 2 minutes, not bad given the lack of thermals in the cold. Looking really forward to sunny hot summer days where you can sit in a good chair and just enjoy soaring. With the 4S 5300mAh that I use can I without any trouble to fly 30-45 minutes at a time if there are no thermals.

Hope you like the video.

Wow For many years was the small GWS E-starter my personal favorite due to it's size. Small, fun, easy to fly and you could fly it anywhere, I had it in my car all the time due to it's size.

Now have the Tundra taken over for the same reason and the Tundra is more durable and even more versatile the the old E-Starter. There is just nothing that you can't do with the Tundra, it's the perfect model for beginners to advanced, perfect year round wheels, floats and skis.

But when I'm going out to the field and have planned to be there a whole day is my Cub's a favorite. I have one Carbon Cub Z and an old balsa Cub that is 220 cm wingspan med a 4 stroke methanol engine. These are my go to planes of my larger models.

But I do also enjoy all my other models as well, And I try to fly them all regularly

Cheers Bjarne
