Kudos goes to Joe Balabon. He has shot all the jets at our field for the last few years. The hard part was fly straight at him at 200mph.

I have a few.

My old 260 which is still out there flying with another owner. It must have a stupid number of hard miles on it now but still seems to be going strong.

A couple of my original 330SC which started it's life in the US and now is being flown by a mate of mine in the UK.

My 330SC with DA200 which is a bit beaten up after an argument with the crank.

And finally one of my pinky Ultra Flash which is brilliant on a P180RX

Here are few pictures of previous CARF planes... some have been sold, some have bitten the dust... I hope to build more some time soon.


3M Extra 330SC with a DA200... recently sold
2.3M Edge 540 with DA85, custom paint job from Oversprayer... died way too soon in a dead stick.
2.9M MX-2 Gary Ward Scheme.. DA170, probably one of my favorite and best flying planes... sold.
3M Yak, JR Scheme with 3W 170... locked up a servo on the 5th flight.
2.1M Yak with a DA50... probably the worst flying CARF I've owned, but still a good flying 50cc plane.
2.7M Pitts... I've been wanting this plane for about 5 years.
2.9M MX-2... just had to get another one! 3W 157CS Twin Spark.

Thx Ant, its not done, but I wanted to fly it at Nall this year, so I sorta slammed it together. This winter the wings will have green as well.... those that have never painted will say "wow great paint job" and a painter will comment on the sanding/buffing A buddy and I are actually resto'g 4 of these 2.6 Extras, all are in various stages of completion, but its fun.

This is #2, but I dont have any pics of it RTF with cowl...it went to to Nall 13 as well

I thought since there hasn't been much action in a few days I would post some videos. I've posted them before in the SU31 thread, but might as well post them again.

Carf SU-31 Walk Around (2 min 4 sec)


Composite Arf 3 Meter Sukhoi SU-31with DA-200 Slideshow (3 min 9 sec)
