I've been flying R/C airplanes since I was 9 and still love the hobby. I've gained a lot of skills and met many good friends along the way. Most the images below are clickable to bring up a higher resolution version.
This is a Quicky 500 I (re)built a couple years back. The covering is monokote - I designed and cut the wavy checkers on a friend's vinyl sign cutter :-)
This is my Great Planes 1/3 scale Pitts biplane. It's powered by a 42cc "US Engines" engine.
Here's a picture of it flying
This is an assassin flying wing from crash test hobbies - these are a blast!
This is a Phoenix strega I used to fly RCPro warbird races with. The shark face is made of monokote trim sheets. I've since replaced the engine with a Saito .91 which has worked well so far.
This is my E-3D. It's an early electric design, but is pretty 3D capable and a lot of fun to fly. It's got a brushless inrunner 'Mega' motor with a 3:1 (roughly) gearbox. I have a 60 amp castle creations ESC and a 3800 mAh 3 cell LiPo in it.
