My good friend let me fly his 92" Edge and I have to say it is a great flying airplane. Very stable and strong airplane.

A good friend of mine suggested that I set a somewhat longer term goal for myself that is achievable considering the progression of the Alzheimer's that will eventually end my RC flying career, if we can call it that.

So I am going to try and put together a Top-Flite Giant Scale P47 Razorback because that was already on the "big want list" with the goal of flying it at Joe Nall 2016. I am confident I can handle all this for the 2016 but beyond that might be pretty optomistic. I am flying well now and not having any issues at all. In fact I made a terrifying save of a foamy warbird at our field when a guy shoved the transmitter to me as his plane was headed into the woods. The reflexes remain in tact for the time being!

The big problem for this build/goal will be money. No kidding huh? You can see more specifics about this effort at the link below.

There's a password - "RC"


Taken with a Gopro on Multiplex Easystar. Shame the air was a little bumpy, but we managed to get the aircraft in frame every time and to (very nearly) stick to the safety brief.

I got some really good "flyover" shots that Im saving for my year end video edit

Just purchased giant stick (tail dragged)
I would like to convert to tricycle landing gear.
Can anyone give me an idea how far back from the CG I should place the main gear?
Is there a general rule?

1st U.S. R/C Flight School instructor launches Scott Airshows (full-scale). Building on his 25+ years as a professional R/C aerobatic instructor and demo pilot, Dave Scott has developed a one-of-a-kind full-scale airshow performance featuring continuous action, crisp precision, and constant variety, to produce an airshow routine that blows the doors off the usual barrage of tumbling and stock maneuvers seen at most airshows. Go to www.scottairshows.com to learn more and watch flying video.

At the end of a day of flying, do you run the engine dry of gas?

Hi, I am building a P-40 giant scale from Ziroli plans. I will post pictures if anyone is interested of the process. I have modified some parts of the original plans to make it more "scale" accurate. I have added the trims on the rudder and elevator and added the "metal" cover on front of the stabilizer as well as the baggage' door, visor, wing antenna, under wing access trap, etc…
I also plan to convert it to electric with a sound system including real P40 sound engine and 2 smoke systems - one dynamically linked to the throttle to recreate the smoke from the exhausts and one under the fuselage for "show".
Another added modification will be the motorized cockpit and the extra drop fuel tank under the wing.
3 high intensity orange LEDs will be added inside the .50 calibers and synchronized with sound system to simulate an attack.
Many other details like rivets, paneling, airbrushing techniques, etc will be described too.
I will do my best to describe each process and add pictures that can help anyone wanting to add these features to their own model. I hope you will have as much fun as I do building my giant models from scratch.
Thanks for joining. Please don't hesitate to ask questions/comments.
