    mndless Don't know a thing..

    Two things.... first, I cut out these new wheel chalks for the trailer.... they fit the diameter of my whiterose wheels, perfectly... four layers of low cost luan ply, some glue and some paint... real simple and they work great.


    Then... I started on this... :)


    woot... !

  2. Cool. Glad you found them.

    Yes I own a hobby shop. I'm a Great Planes dealer, Horizon Dealer and MKS dealer. I don't really have a website but if you need something just shoot me a PM on here and I'll see what I can do.

  3. So I tried the bicycle lift idea to store my MX2. But I didn't really care for it. Seemed a bit sketchy and kind of a pain to use.

    So I came up with this setup today. I like it much better. Sturdy and easy to use. I'm going to build another one just like it for my Stinson.

    A bit more done. Completely opened up the "box" where the stock motor mount screwed in. No provision for cooling air to get through:concern:. Motor was doomed right out of the box for sure. The debris I found in it was just the beginning.

    I relocated the elevator servo to the rear of the fuse for better control surface throw and offset any bit of additional weight up front. 20160402_195848.jpg 20160402_195928.jpg 20160402_195945.jpg

    Hey Kelly,

    Is that the sun I see in a few of your pictures? The sun finally broke through the rain clouds late this afternoon around here right before it set. It's supposed to be sunny with clear skies tomorrow, but alas, still no flying for me. The wind is supposed to be blowing 15 to 25mph, with gusts up to 40mph tomorrow. . . . . .:cryin:

    Sunshine all day today but windy as you described. Sunday calling for 5-10 so me and the boyz going to make some noise.

    This could be a day similar to the one when this picture was taken.

    Cool idea. I'd do that, but I think I need a garage first.:lol2:

    Ok guys have a huge problem pick up a new Aerobeez slick 540 at Toledo Friday. Standing I my shop looking at the Viper partially built and the box of the new 50cc slick. Really like to open the box of the slick and start assembling. Just leave it and finish the viper. If I open the box you know what happens you start paying with it and then your toast.
