Finished a scratch built F-22 raptor. Took her out for a maiden, flew beautifully considering it was kind of dark. Superb design, as I did run it into the ground twice due to the dark and my getting familiar with strictly elevon control, and the airframe only suffered a bent nose, quickly fixed and is good as new. Also the speed is amazing and I was startled by it during the first launch. It also slowed up very well. Overall very satisfied with the whole process, glad I chose this design!

Here was a twin sparrow that I finished painted and maidening last week. I was really inspired by the how to fly your dragon episode so after i got my wisdom teeth out last thursday i spent the day creating what my dragon would be like if I had my own dragon to fly. (Sorry for the poor picture quality. )

Now that I have plenty of time (blessing in disguise with this whole covid thing) I fixed the Corsair by cutting the foam square on both pieces, then adding in a piece to connect the rest of the fuselage with the nose and motor. The motor angle was a little off but it flew great; was still a little tail heavy. However I took the wing off to do some other adjustments and recentered the servos controlling the rudder and elevator. So it should be better. Also I added pennies to the front to give it more nose weight.
