Here is a new thread, in a "Member Only" portion of the site, where Members can post a pic of themselves so that other members might recognize you at an event. This forum is not visible to those who aren't members of the site. I'll start the party with this pic of me and my 89" Slick: IMG_1901.jpg

I'm getting ready to build a 58" 3DHS Edge 540 and have a question on how I should connect everything. I'm going to run an ICE 75 with a Castle BEC Pro and would still like to use the Hitec SPC voltage indicator.

  • Hover

After seeing Capt Roll's awesome 100cc OMP Yak, I had to learn more! I found this one in my size range: http://www.ohiomodelplanes.com/50ccyak/index.htm DSCF0396.jpg Anyone out there have one? I'm very interested in this airplane, and any info about it. -G :flyer:

Was at a fly-in/fundraiser a couple of weekends ago in Oklahoma and won a couple of HK Yak-54's. Hobby King sponsored most of the raffle prizes. The one I will keep is the Groupe Tranchant. Fiberglass fuse with laser cut parts inside the cabin. Wings ,v-stab and h-stab are covered with alierons already hinged. 1385...
