    Last week I filled my shop with 4 planes I'm holding for a friend to take to the club auction while he's away marrying off his daughter. Which makes it a little difficult to move around as I was already planning to take 4 planes of my own to the auction to clear out space. I counted again and have five (5) planes ready for a maiden flight too - and depending on how those first flights go, two of those planes might end up at auction too.

    But, I did take the 'piece of the py-lon' that came home from the FFE17 Air Races and turned it into a foam airplane work stand, and started on the finishing touches for Psyborg's Caudron. Might be able to finish that one up if the weather goes sour this weekend and have 6 ready for maiden flights.

    Anyone else have this problem? Or is it just us poor saps living in the DC Metro Area's Do Not Fly Zone?

    I am fortunate to live 1 mile from the field where I fly. Turn left out of the neighborhood it's country. Turn right, it's city. Really been blessed that this area hasn't been over-run with construction like every other part of town. When I bout the house 22 years ago, I was only figuring it would be 5 years before I had to move further out.

    Ohh you need to go rip that water tower with the gremlin to really test the Dronin tune!!


    Oh and was that someones house on fire just below the water tower with that bright orange area? Looks kind of odd shaped to be really bright lighting.

    LOL... Really can't get anything past Psyborg. Yeah, those were emergency vehicles. Took that over a year ago. Prolly ought to get some FPV gear on the TJ's Gremlin before rippin the tower. We fly the soccer fields by that tower in the winter sometimes.

    I was stacking my planes for storage when I put my arrow above my bloody wonder, it got me to thinking.... What if I take the arrow and moify it a bit, and use that as the wing for the wonder. Mocking it up it looks almost like an f-16
    A good landing is one you can walk away from. A great landing is when you can use the plane again.

    I finally finished a long repaint/rebuild job on my FMS P-47. A few months back, the front end exploded in flight when the firewall failed, launching the motor/prop/cowl into places unknown. Now, I have a scale diameter prop fitted and a VERY beefed up firewall installed.

    If you stick that in the freezer, it should last for years

    DD that P-47 paint job looks great brother. I like the nose art under the cockpit with that name too hehe.

    All I managed to do lately was get a FPV camera setting video done for people who have asked what I use.
