    I had to chime in! I’m loving all the different looks everyone is coming up with. I’ve been working all weekend on mine and wanted to share the Fuse. Still have some work to do on the wings, but I couldn’t wait to share. This is without a doubt one of my favorite planes that Motion RC has released. Not just because it’s so different from everything, but seeing how everyone is doing so much to customize them. It’s been raining out here so haven’t been to the field but I’m hoping to see a few AL-37 out there this weekend.

      Iron Maiden and Toy Story and Mangoes, oh my... what else are we working on? Poseidon and Tanker and, and, and. It seems Callie has made one of everything by now, or if not, then she will eventually!

        yes i did because i asked for a few other small details as well like the letters on the nose gear doors and i paid extra for faster shipping as well, she has done a great job so far! She is making us look good!

        • Is anyone planning to attempt a water bomber AL37? After seeing Jeremy Solt's Air Force Tanker video I started to think "what if the AL37 could actually carry liquid..." No idea how much water you could actually hold, but I think the plane has the power to handle some sort of payload. Getting the proper CG might a huge challenge, you may need to do an external tank.

          Is it a crazy idea or feasible?

            what’s your thoughts on the 6000 admiral ?? I’m considering getting some for this ?? Or should I stick to more 5000???
            Apriliamgt All of the videos we've posted on our channel have been with the Admiral 5000, so that's what I recommend. If you already have 5000s, 'might as well save some money and fly on those for the time being. The bird will of course fly the 6000 without any issue, so if/when your EDF fleet can handle 6000s, then it may make sense to add some of those into your supply. I try to avoid buying a specifically sized battery for just one plane, unless absolutely necessary.


            Bmccormick When developing this bird I never thought someone would choose that livery, but I'm glad you did and very happy that you enjoyed putting it together! Yours is one of a kind and looks excellent!

                I have been waiting to see someone do a tanker and this turned out great! It is exactly what I had envisioned that could be possible using 3D printing.
                Now I am just waiting to see someone do a P-8 Poseidon fully loaded out.

                        Excellent 737. Did you use Callie's decals or is that paint?

                          I used Callie for the logos, doors, windows, text and the hearts. But the tail and the body is paint.

                          • What paints did you use?
                            Are they brushed on or did you airbrush it?

                                    It’s a combination of Spray can and AIrbrush. The Blue and the gray was Montana Gold Spray paint, and the red and yellow were createx airbrush paint.
