    • Got in a few flights this morning on my Hangar 9 Corsair and FMS Hawker Typhoon. Really happy with how the 3D printed rockets for the Typhoon turned out. Really makes it look ready to take out some axis tanks!

      • F106DeltaDart is that the 20cc gas Corsair that HH used to sell? Sure is a nice looking bird, not to mention the Typhoon.

          Thanks Hugh, that’s the one! Mine is built for 6S electric and is a really sweet flyer. Can’t believe it got discontinued so fast. It’s easily one of the best flyers I’ve owned so far.

          • I just installed a new flight controller in my Blade 550, and took it out to test and make sure every thing was good to go. Checked out OK! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEPYK_U8Ujk

                Sweet! Love that Corsair...My ESM 85" Corsair is nearly complete. I should be able to pick it up in August sometime.

                Maidened my buddy's Flyzone Beaver on our vacation trip to Netarts Bay, OR. Right at the end of the video it cuts out abruptly because I gave the controls to him and he was trying to take off and flipped it. My RunCam was lost but the SD card survived hence the footage. He had to go for a very cold swim to retrieve it though, lol.

                    Very Nice F106DeltaDart . Hangar 9 made some IMO high quality ARF's. The only one I have though is the 60" Beast Bi-Plane set up for 6S electric as well. This was the 3rd RC plane I bought and only had 2 48" foam warbirds first and was out of my league when I bought it, but just loved the way it looked. Even so, when I flew it, it flew so well that I mistakenly thought, "Hey, I'm pretty Good", but it was just the aircraft. The quality of balsa and monocoat and the hardware is still first class. It knife edges so easy with no mixes and does acrobatics almost as well as my Extreme Flight birds. I loved it so much, I got a 2nd at least for spare parts because I could see HH was about to discontinue it (like they do for some many of them) and must have gotten the last one or so. It's still new in the box cause in 5-6 years, I've never had a mishap with it (unlike just about everything else I have). I even added a Mr. RC sound card in it, although there is no foam at all, but still sounds pretty cool. With the size and color scheme, it's extremely easy to follow it's orientation in the air. Fortunately it just fits in the back of my pickup without having to take the wings off. I was thinking of getting that same Corsair you got, but it quickly got discontinued, so glad to see you flying it.

                    • Got in two flights on the Tiny Trainer yesterday, one flight each on the Scout and Versawing, and one short - and almost disastrous - flight on the Mustang (only thing I can figure watching the video, is I must have flown right into the early stages of a dust devil right after take-off). Fortunately, just before the Mustang hit the ground, it was about leveled off, so the only damage was sheared-off landing gear. I also got in two easy flights on the Stinger, just enjoying zipping around the pattern.

                                Thanks! Landing could have been even better, I flared a bit too early. But this T-33 is quite forgiving.

                                • I had to go over to Gillette Wyo. today so I took my Free Wing T-33 with and flew it at their local AMA field. Which I am a member of. We got this photo just before touch down. We all had a great time.

                                    • Got out a few prop planes on Thursday for some relaxing fun. Have to say the Corsair is definitely my favorite prop warbird. Always the first in the truck on prop days. We had a stiff 15-20 mph slight crosswind and she acted like it was nothing, commenting to me on the way home "bring on the hurricane". I'm not ashamed to admit that on flight #1, the pucker factor was 10, and on flights #2-8 it was 15 (on a scale of 1-10) just considering taking off and landing (in flight never a problem). I am a slow learner but after some 60 flights with her, the pucker factor has reduced to 0 for the last 15-20 flights.

                                      Then yesterday got some EDF's out even though we had almost a 20mph wind in anticipation of the hurricane. We finally got our lawn equipment issue solved and ended up with a slightly used John Deere golf course mower for $14,000 that cuts the grass evenly at 1/2". I am in seventh heaven now, because the machine they were going to get cost $30,000 and cut only to 1". My F-16 and SU-30 could not get off, and after a lot of vocal lobbying (OK use the b word), they finally decided to go in another direction and ended up with the John Deere. Most of the members didn't care because they fly large scale gas and turbines (and like the longer grass) and I am one of the few foamy EDF owners, so I thought I'd end up on the short end of the stick, but now, it's even better than it used to be and "Life is Good"! So I keep reminding them that my b......ing saved us $16,000 and we ended up with an outstanding runway!

                                      Anyway, took the F-16 (this time the Flying Razorback version) and SU-30 out to see how the new runway worked and to try out some recent modifications to each with putting a larger nose wheel on. I also wanted to try the HRB 6000 and the HobbyStar 8000 in both and before yesterday, they couldn't even get off with the RT 5500 70C. Well the results are now in and the F-16 got off with both batteries in less than 100 feet and the SU-30 in about 125 feet, both much quicker than even before when the grass was at about 5/8". The shorter grass and larger nose wheel made a huge difference. I'm attaching a video of each but have to apologize for the poor quality, a friend's hand held phone took the pictures and we had a good 20 mph gusting wind he said made him unable to hold the phone steady. I think it was too much Jack Daniels! I'll detail the performance of the batteries in the respective thread on each, but in summary, the F-16 likes them both, even better than the RT 5500, and the flying double decker bus SU-30 likes the HRB, but the HS 8000 makes it worse and turns it into the Exxon Valdez before it hit the shoals, but it does get in the air off of grass!

                                      • Maidened my V3 HSD 105mm F-16 today. Was quite the ride! Need to figure out some trim/CG issues and go from there. At least she came home in one piece. WHEW!

                                        There's a reason the song I chose for the video is called "Breathe Again"
