Hi all I've been away a while and managed to find some picture's of some of my now old RC model planes I built by my own design,

 

First was a basic home made Pilot for Mrs Disco as She works for NHK TV and Domokun is their station mascot

 

 

the first is my pink panther plane made from foam insulation board, I fitted a small brushless motor and lithium battery packs 

 

Second is a Radio controlled conversion I did myself of a kids rubber band plane, note the nice paint job I did, sadly this pic was taken before I could apply weathering I cant find the completed version pictures

 

But this thing was a handful to fly though, 60 cm wingspan! 

 

 

 

Lastly a Pitts special 3D stunt plane again my own design, 4 ailerons is always better than two!  this thing could hang off the prop at 30% throttle 

 

 

 

 

I think it would be nice to see some pictures of peoples collection's or model planes as well, even tanks and other things could go in too i suppose.

 

I look forward to seeing what other people have made or just own

 

Disco,

 

:honoring:

My current project

 

Although radio gear is now significantly lighter so I may be able to make this plane fly a lot slower

So i have complete the build as seen in the above video but mine is better as I have ailerons meaning I can do some mild aerobatics such as rolls and loops and most importantly fly inverted

 

 

I only took 1 and a half hours to convert all I used was scalpel, a bit of super glue and some epoxy resin to mount the motor and gearbox

 

Disco's airplane :)

Yes it has a slight resemblance to a squashed Xp-31. Prefect weather for a test flight today but im stuck in the office...this was always a problem with RC planes especially very small ones, anything above 5mph wind and it becomes quite tricky to fly.

 

one day ill make one of these.

 

 

in the meantime ill make do with the Flying machine
