I found a few pics of the fuse at the start of construction,at the time I built several fixtures and used a laser to line everything back to straight. Ive also added a few pics of the tail repair. The type of damage here is pretty much the same as the main wing, which I have to open the wings to get the the repair started.

These are a few pics from the rebuild. As you can see the nose was just gone. The nose tip is all that I had to work with. I rebuilt the fuse some time ago and I don't have many photos of that time. The nose section has been rebuilt for the most part except for the fine details on the inside of the cockpit. The The horz stabi next,not too much damage there. then on to the main wing. More info as I move on.

Thanks for visiting, but I keep most of my plane data in one place, and that has turned out to be on RC Groups. Please see my blog there!

Almost the end of the winter here in England, So I thought I'd better get my editing done before the real fun starts again.

Fairly laid back this time, almost no aeros. Hopefully a nice "vibe" though and lots of interesting summer / winter things happening in the landscape

Hope you like it

One of my favorite aspects of this hobby (besides flying) is creating videos of airplanes along with the people piloting them. I love editing a video to music, and each one I create I try to do better the next time: better camera angles, better content, and better in front of the camera... that's the hardest part!

Here's my eFest wrap up video:

Replacing an older single satellite receiver with a Powersafe unit. Can I use my heavy duty switches with this unit or do I need the switch that came with the new unit?

I am wondering if anyone out there knows what the header drop measurement is for the 107'' Pilot Rc Yak 54, I am installing the EME 120cc with canisters. I have searched every which possible way on the internet to try and find some kind of measurement but I have had no success, I have a ruff guess what the measurement is but not an exact.

I am new to the 100ccer's and exhaust setups like this, any kind of help or guidance would be much appreciated...

Plane is The Clik from Twisted Hobbys and RC Factory

Here is the warm up flight and the Demo. This past weekend I had the opportunity to fly a demonstration for a nice sized crowd of a couple hundred people at The National Building Museum in Washington DC. The room is spectacular. Just amazing. I hope to go back in March for another event. The building was built in 1887. Really cool. Flying the Clik here of course. Very glad to have had this opportunity so thanks Dad, Randy, Paul and Glen for making it happen
