I realized last night I have been in this hobby about 30 weeks, and I have built way more than 30 planes (with all the replacements...hahahaha)...
and I've already built 4 planes this year... Super bee, Tiny Trainer (as a glider), P-38, and my Toy Hauler...So.....
My goal is to build 1 plane a week this year...52 builds...
Today starts week 5, and I'm building the Mini F-22 after work...

Here are pics of what I've built so far, just to catch up!
Here is build 8 for the year, build 3 for February...I keep forgetting to take pictures during the build...
Tri-plane of no particular design...

Cut the nose down 1" and moved the motor back another inch, so tip to tail length decreased by 2", all in the very most nose...helped with the CG big time! I think I like the white!

Just flew her, and it was beautiful! cutting down the nose was key...now it's almost perfectly 1/7 scale, except the middle wing...mistake...so now I'm gonna build one with the right length middle wing and all of the other dimensions the same, and she should be good for plans, if anybody wants to build one!
