What are you building?

PostPosted: Mon Dec 24, 2012 9:39 pm

Merry Christmas (eve) to everyone!!! I hope yall has a good one

Being that many of you guys might be getting some new toys tonight/tomorrow morning I figured it be a good time to see what sort of projects are planned during the building season.

So I will start:

First on the table is a Primo 40, getting a g32

Then another slab, not positive what it will be yet, but definetly something super loose. Also in 40 size with a g32 (airframe suggestions welcome)

And last a cj plane. I gave my 3 yr old niece a Zenoah g26 EI for chrismas and promised to build her a 9' Telemaster from one of the new hobby lobby kits. It will also double a tow plane



My mom took these pictures I think they are hilarious
she shows some serious intrest in RC already, she even has her own radio (A super old Airtronics)

Nice! I am really digging my eyak right now. For me left hand rollers have just seemed to click with this plane (sim time has helped too). I need to add some LG, thats a good idea to help balance it. The ass end is just so long and the nose is so short that even with 1000mah packs its still pretty tail heavy.

You Bros really knock them out left and right. I really got to lose that worry about fuking up it stigma, I haven't even started building yet and am already second guessing shit. I think I just need to crash some shit, beyond repairable, and just learn to say fuk it cause everything has an expiration date no material how perfect its built or not.

Sorry about the noob ramble,but how did you Bros lose the build jitters?

I've got a couple flight test swappables to finish.

Just finished a .46 coursair and spacewalker.

Next is finishing the dreamitrc sidewinder missile.

Then my vh yak. In all of that ill be ordering my GBR bipe now that Christmas is over and build the hell outa it!

After the GBR I guess ill pipe my mojo so its ready for spring and make a new pipe for my outlaw.

After all that I've got a GP giant aero master to rebuild the nose on after the dle55 pulled the firewall off a month or two ago. It'll get a 1.60 2 stroke after the rebuild. Fuk I need more time to work!

WW 50cc LamSuk e :gay: on the board right now.
After I clear the board, the next project will be getting everything without removable wings either packed in J's truck or sell-able for the swap meet in Monroe in February.
After Monroe, I've got more to build than I can handle in the next 2 years or so... but I'll probably do the EEv2 71" to house this JC-30, and then a WW20cc or Slide65 (if I can get a kit by then) for the OS GT-22.

Side note: Hey, Stan... I'm converting my daughter's Toledo Special to e :gay: ... any thoughts on power setups?

I added a plywood block and a plywood cross block, drilled holes in it and cut out the nose piece for my landing gear, just like the saber 35 has , made the nose piece stronger to , I will take a picture of it for you , only takes a little bit.

Just start building. Watch build vids. Read build threads. Ask questions. Don't over think shit. Don't try to re-engineer a proven design. Stay focused on the finished product. Get it flying. Buy another kit. Start building, and avoid mistakes made on the first build. Repeat till no mistakes are made, and you no longer have room left in your hobby room to build another plane... Crash, or sell, or stomp the ones that are collecting dust. Build another kit. Once you finish one or two birds you will be hooked.

I'm still finishing an Sbach 25 :roll: I can't seem to find the time to finish it, however, all that's left is to install the pushrods, control horns, ESC, and landing gear and it'll be ready (hoping to sneek away tomorrow and do this).

Going through some changes at work, so my schedule is going to change for the worse for a while. I had a momentary lapse of judgement a few days ago where I thought I'd sell all but one of my kits and only build ARF's, but then I came to my senses.

So...after the Sbach 25, I've got a Skeeter 30 ARF and a Sabre 35 to assemble. Then hopefully tackle my kit horde one at a time.

Adding a 4th led strip to my fish-tank..one attached to the lid that turns off when you open the lid.

Then..fixing Sabre 56, putting servos into the small birds to replace the 35hd's so I have some stuff to fly indoors..
Then scaling down an epp biplane to see if I can make an indoor small version..

Notice a theme here RMM Bros.. I wanna do some indoor flyin! It is cold out..

Figured I would save money for other toys by reusing my still airworthy combat gear. Gotta finish the linkages on my tufflight combat panther, putting its ass on a diet with a VH 700mah life and reworked the servos back an inch to hopefully make it more tight turning and give all the dudes with avengers a run for there streamers this year.
2012-12-25 06.54.51-1.jpg
1" back for better maneuverability hopefully, and on top instead of inside wing.
2012-12-25 06.55.08-1.jpg
My filthy ass bench

If it works out well my tufflight predator is gonna get the same treatment.


Next will be a Rocky Mountain 3d GBR 32" I just got in the mail last night. :banana:

Then stuffin a Mchone built slide 48 and give the 55ax CCP a try. Thanks for the pics Jake, it is pretty. :banana: :banana:


Then I am gonna bust my kit build cherry on a slide 58 my lovely wife got me for Christmas. Got to figure out how to build it without making my wife never want to buy me another kit again. :rolleye: :shock: :mrgreen:

One year ago I got a Lamyak 15 from Frisbee. Like you I was worried about how it was going to go and I didn't want to make any mistakes so I spent forever thinking about each and every step. I must have read the instructions a dozen times before I even started. The fuse was a piece of cake because everything is just laying on the board. I worried and worried about the wing build. All for naught. The wing went together just like the manual said it would.

Did I make some mistakes? Yep. I had to replace half the nose before I even got the first flight in. Since then the nose has been replaced twice, I've ripped out one of the CA hinges on the elevator, and I've broken the fuselage twice. Now those mistakes that I made when I built it are nothing. So stop worrying about it and just do it. It'll be much easier than you have been thinking. Trust me.

Your fellow NOOB builder.
