had this in the closet for awhile. got a sunnysky x2305-1450kv that i am going to mount to an Opto 12A ESC w/ a micro 5A/3V BEC. hoping to swing a 9x4.5 prop on 2S. should be stupid. ;)

I use a 2206 1500 kv 8X4.5 and 450 lipo 3s defiantly more then enough omph to get out of tight situations. On 3s it will handle a 9X5 but does not have the same punch, feels like it lags a bit on the throttle.

not rc but i finally got a pic of all 3 of our aggressor planes.

in early mid 90's Top Gun was transitioning from the A-6 Skyhawk to the F/A-18 for Aggressor role. while they did that, my squad picked up the duty of being the bad guys at Top Gun.

my fav and what liked to call my plane, was 413 in the green camo. did 2 trips to TG with this one

next fav was 403, the dez paint.

and finally the ghost...407

also found a pic of a carrier landing on my last trip out to sea. a few of our reserve pilots still needed carrier quals so they flew 8 of us to North Island, and then a COD out to the Vincent. i would have been at the front of the mast working final check for launch.

maidend fellow members SU-30. mixed feelings on this one. needs a little more umph, long take off and even longer landing. stupid cool looking in the air though.

the Geebee is fun as always, just wish i could find the hand painted pilot that my daughter did for me. he ejected unnecessarily and has been missing in action since...

EFlite Pitts was a gift to me from another member and always fun with crazy roll rate.

kinda quiet down here... :censored:

i was in Sand Hollow last week and had a blast with my crawlers. started day with just me, by end there we prob 20 people with rc cars.

my 1/24 was prob my fav.

i had hoped to have 4 wheel steering on my 10th scale but didn't have a spare front axle drive to make it all work. still had not problems getting to top.

finally bit the bullet and ordered 2X set front/rear axles from another ride and hope i can hack together.

meanwhile i have been working on my "boulder problems" course in front yard. not easy in any direction but i think once i have the 4WS i should be ok. doesn't look like much but 2 of them i haven't made yet, and most the others i still have to work at. :sneaky:
