Don't try this at home! Flying an RC Airplane thru a tunnel.

This is insane! It is an 80-inch plane flying under the tunnels in Stockholm, Sweden.

Topeka Fly-in -- Blue Sky Squadron International


Went to a local fly-in recently. It was sponsored by Blue Sky Squadron International Model Aircraft Association Airshow.

It was co-sponsored by the owner of Dee and Mee Hobbies here in Topeka. It was held at Bob's field just southeast of Topeka, near Forbes Field.

Bob has a really nice field and I got to take a lot of pix of some really nice planes.
"This is as close to Kansas' own field of dreams as you can get," said Ken Bina, a Topeka pilot who has devoted more than three decades of his life to building and flying scale model airplanes. Bina lives in North Topeka, but doesn't mind driving about 20 minutes to Longyear's airfield at 4535 S.E. 69th in Berryton.


Snoopy even made an appearance, piloted by Mr. Ken Bina
Today, he will pilot his 40-percent scale version of a Breezy at the Blue Sky Squadron International Model Aircraft Association Airshow at 69th and Paulen Road. The plane has a wing span of 13 feet, 10 inches, and can reach speeds up to 65 mph.

RC Hobby saves lives in California fires


Just keeping track of the fires in California and ran across this.....

Ringed by flames, family takes refuge in van


Then the family recalled something a fire marshal told them while inspecting their property several years earlier: If they were ever threatened by fire, they should head for the large dirt patch between the two homes. Henry used the patch to fly model airplanes. It was flat and void of vegetation, perfect for the takeoffs and landings of his remote-control aircraft. Now, it was going to be their refuge.


WOW!!!!

Butterfly/Lazy Days 12 - Wings


Butterfly/Lazy Days 12 - Wings

Ok final approach!!! I inserted the dowel for the wing halfs. And while I was at it I thought it would be a good idea to tape the joint both on top and bottom. Yeah might have been overkill and not called for in the instructions but what the hay!

I am using deans micro but can use my small to large deans converter to use the smaller lipo batts.

Using the big Thunderpower lipo batts I am probably going to have a weight and balance issue... Will have to do a thorough check on that.
