Maidened this Ripmax EasyStreet 2 yesterday - 3S power train: what a lovely flyer - only needed a few clicks of right aileron and two of up elevator...then smooth steady aeros and plenty of oomph! I normally fly IC but our patch has been churned up by motorbikes so this is an ideal model to get a flying 'fix' over the winter months

Nigel Hawes 30" Tucano built as a 7 day challenge from a pile of sheet wood and a plan to a fully covered flown model in 7 days. I have now added some trim to make it a bit easier to see in the current dreary skies! Flies really nicely, full build thread can be found under the 7 day challenge thread.

For me, Yet another Scale Heli build but this time finally finishing a fuselage which I bought back in 1985.

This is one is a Bell 222 UT (Utility) as owned by Halo Aviation in South Africa and operated by Buthelezi EMS in the air ambulance role.

First pic is the model, not a lot left to do now, final fittings etc so not too far away from maiden. The 2nd pic is the real thing

Hi All,

I just finished my Veron Avro 504N powered by an OS 40FS surpass I modified the wings to take ailerons and reduced the dihedral by half. She tips the scales at just over 6lbs

The roundels are the original ones from the kit and are about 40 years old, the serial numbers and band are from pyramid models, the position of pilot is on going, trying to find a decent one.

The dummy engine was part of the kit.

Have to wait a bit for some decent weather for the maiden

Regards

Robert

2 Cubs that someone didn't want, including the ASP 75 engine in the cub. Was converted to electric. but reconverted it with the same engine it originally must have used, as the engine mounting bolts were the same.

Go-Jet built from Sept 2017 RCM&E plans. So I'm obviously not the fastest builder here!

Model is finished in the colour scheme of RAE Llanbedr which was the home of the UK's drone and pilotless flying research programme.

I have just finished my new model. This is a cross breed or mongrel being a slightly enlarged fuselage from one design and a thickened wing from another.

Name is Miss Sizzle.

There is no build blog and I am not planning to submit it to our editor as it isn't really a new design.

If anyone gets down on bended knee I may allow the odd PDF file out. No instructions just my own plan.

Span is 47, weight is 3 lbs dead, 3S 3000Mah battery, 40 amp ESC, 3541 1070 motor.

The pilot is one of those truly superb highy detailed ones that used to be sold on Ebay.

Just occasionally I like to build from a kit or plan.

The trouble is finding a kit that excites me but doesn't cost a small fortune

Due to the state of the weather over the last year, or so, I have at least 6 aeroplanes to maiden.

My next model will be this.

Boats don't mind a bit of rain and some even like it a bit windy !
