Ladies & Gentlemen,

We've been in Austin for the past month tending to our grandchildren while my daughter is undergoing a stem cell transplant at MDA in Houston. We took the kids to the local model airshow, I purchased a raffle ticket and won a new, in the box, RC Controller. I'm not a flyer and wish to sell the unit. The particulars are as follows, if any readers or your colleagues are interested.

Weatronic 2.4 Dual FHSS, BAT60 Transmitter w/22Controls
(Whatever that means)

It is in a beautiful carry case and has a set of instructions, and the final inspection checklist from the factory.

If there is interest, please contact me by phone at: 586-530-7100 or send an e-mail to : licatabernardo@gmail.com.

Thank you for your help. I'd like to sell this soon...could use the bucks to defray all the added expenses.

Bernardo

This is my first gaser. A Great Planes 160 Ultimate Biplane. I have Hitec 645mg servos throughout. A DLE 55 pulls it through the sky with ease, and sounds awesome. I've had one mishap hovering it a 10 feet when I ran out of gas. It's fun and scary at the same time. Her's video of the 10th flight. I'm still trying to figure out all of the little nuances of this plane as it has a lot of them.

So back in March of 2016, I was invited to go to Red Flag, a first of its kind pattern contest for turbine powered models. Bill Cunningham was going to fly in this invitational event with his BVM Ultra Bandit and he asked me to assist/call for him. The old TOC team was back together! It was a lot of fun and I'll admit, I was bitten by the jet bug.

While there, I met Seba Silvestre, the owner of Sebart and fell in love with the Avanti S. I had to have one! Turns out that Seba had his Avanti that he flew last year in the US for sale and I bought it. I knew my flying skills were not up to it and I would need to get some practice in before applying for my waiver, I came up with a plan. I would build a mini Avanti, set up as near to the turbine one as possible and fly it on the same 10S setup that I use for my F3A airplane. After getting some flights on this electric jet, I would be ready for the turbine.

So, after waiting 4 months, my mini Avanti arrived. My flying buddy, Dennis Maras, ordered one also and we built them in parallel. I set mine up with JP Hobby 10S fan unit, Castle Creations Phoenix Edge 120A ESC, Castle Link telemetry unit, Spektrum AR9350 receiver with AS3X gyros and telemetry, and a Turnigy BEC. I had some Power Master 5S 5400maH batteries that I use in F3A. I also purchased some Gens Ace 5S 5000maH batteries that are 45C discharge rate.

Both airplanes turned out nice. The Sebart kits are excellent. Dennis' airplane has the same receiver and BEC but he is running a 6S setup. First flight for mine was 8/21/2016. I flew two flights that day. Dennis' first flight was 8/28/2016. He flew two flights. I also flew mine three flights that day.

The airplane flies very nice and I have been tweaking on the control throws and settings. Very pleased with it so far.

I built my first RC model plane when I was about 12. That was 48 years ago this year. It was a Midwest Esquire that my uncle gave me. It was originally designed to be rudder only but I modified it with a elevator and throttle control. I taught myself how to fly it. I flew it for several years and branched into other models like a Goldberg Senior Falcon.

I had the chance to learn to fly full scale so I pursued that (including competing in IAC Aerobatic competition) and just dabbled in models until the 1980's. I had started a family and the full scale flying had to be set aside. I decided to get back into models and particularly Pattern. I took a job in Tulsa, OK in 1988 and was lucky to meet Bill Cunningham, one of the top pattern flyers in the land. Bill was very helpful and encouraging to me. Bill was invited to fly in the prestigious Tournament of Champions in Las Vegas and he invited me to come along as his assistant and caller. I went with Bill to each of the TOC's that he participated in and had the pleasure of meeting Chris Lakin, Peter Goldsmith, Ivan Kristenson and other top fliers.

I moved back to Memphis in the early 90's and started back flying and building full scale airplanes. I have built several homebuilt airplanes over the years and now own and fly a Sequoia Falco F.8L.

A couple of years ago, a friend of mine at work, Dennis Maras approached me about flying models. I bought a ParkZone P51 and a spektrum radio. It was my first introduction to electric airplanes and I really liked it. I quickly moved up to a 3D Hobby Shop Vyper (65"). Now, I have just this week put a maiden flight on a Sebart mini Avanti EDF jet.

Here's a little challenge for you - can you tell where the R/C field is at all times during the aero's sequence ?

This is my latest project build. Full build thread over on rcgroups here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2523079

The size in the title is misleading. The plane is now 3.9mtr span.
I'm a glider flyer mainly and we needed another tug plane where I fly, so I built this one. I am currently looking for another engine for this model.
A couple of pictures attached.

TwistedHobbys does it yet again with their Crack Fokker! man this thing is amazing! It flies so smooth and slow and is a 3D machine when you want it to be! Also very fun to fly around nice and slow with the flaps down. I also added mixing in the flaps and elevator for some CRAZY fast loops! I am running the Crack Series DMG combo with a 3s 800mah battery which gives me 6 solid minutes of hard 3d. I can go on forever about how good this plane is... Well done Twistedhobbys! the Link to the Fokker and optional power combos are below:

Hi Guys... I'm new to FG so please excuse this post if it's already old news... I have an Aeroworks Extra 260 Freestyle (30CC) with no Cowl and it's been 9 months since I contacted them to get a replacement. Is this typical for Aeroworks??? I would be grateful if someone could tell me where to get one. Hell... I'm almost considering making one.

Thx.

Being a 3D guy I wasn't expecting much from the new TwistedHobbys and RCFactory StepOne Trainer. But now I can say that I am flying this thing as much as I am my 3D foamies! This plane is an amazing flyer, it's fun to glide around like a sailplane (which results in a long flight time). It does inverted loops insanely fast, almost like waterfalls! And when I put my FPV camera on the plane it was almost like it belonged on the StepOne, there is a perfect spot on the front of the wing for a UMX FPV camera, and since the motor is in the back the camera has a perfect view. Another huge plus about the motor being in the back of the StepOne is how much more durable it makes it! Using the same 3 layer foam concept as the Twisted Racer Series planes, it makes the plane just about indestructible! A very well thought out design by TwistedHobbys and RCFactory!

The Kit can be found here: https://twistedhobbys.com/th-34-epp-step-one-trainer/

I am running a 2s 450mah with the TwistedHobbys StepOne power combo which has everything you need to get the plane up in the air except for RX, battery, and radio.

I had the pleasure of driving by this store purely by accident and stopping in as I am an avid modeler and seeing what products they sold. I will have to say I give the a thumbs up for there knowledge regarding cars, airplane, and quads. They have a full line of all the major brands of products and are friendly and will lead you to the product you are looking for. Not just tell you they are on the back wall of the store and point to them. I am really happy I found this store and wanted to pass the news to my fellow modelers.
