Outdoor Electric 


We shot a little video of full contact foamy combat tonight at Hawk Field:


Our intrepid pilots try desperately to knock one another from the sky while flying electric combat planes made from blue insulation foam board.

     Hey Keith,

     Thought you could put this plane out on the website somewhere.  Pretty proud of it.  

     It's a Great Planes F-15 that I bought from Tom Floyd at the labor day air show.  It was dove grey with a nitro motor and I tore it up from there.  Too much for me to mention what happened after that so I put it on RCGroups.com here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=596763 

     Had one flight before I recovered it but it's a good flying electric plane! 

     Hope all is well with you and the planes!  Next Picture

Bret Grell & Dan Cramer are building a 70" Edge 540 from blue foam.  Brett scratch built the airplane from about $15.00 worth of blue foam using hot glue and arrow shafts purchased at Walmart for $1.00 each.  They used Dan's Axi 4130 & 70 amp speed to power it.

I will keep you posted on how it flys and hopefully get an article from Dan and Brett on the details so that you will be able to build one like it.

Bob Roegge's Electric Conversion is a 4 Star 60.

Bob's plane has the same electric power system as Dan's does.

     Joe Cole is building this model of  "Jay-Jay The Jet Plane"  from the Cartoon Series.  He is building it for his 2 1/2 year old son.  What an idea!

      I publish Metro Area R/C Flying to make a central web site for all the area R/C clubs, not to replace individual club sites, but to tie all of them together and promote growth and interaction between clubs. The most important service of the web site is to post the Metro Area Schedule. The schedule lists all the events for all the clubs in one location so that R/C flyers can see what events are available in the area and plan ahead. I believe it will also help the area clubs to work out their schedules so that a club event, will not conflict, with another club's event. The next most important service is to provide a Page that has maps to all the events, meetings, dinners and parties. Right after that comes the Newsletter Page which lists club newsletters. Reading other club newsletters lets members see what others are offering in the area that they are interested in and promotes interaction between clubs.  This is your web site, if you would like to show-off your newest plane, or share an experience, you can E-Mail pictures and articles to me at: MetroRCFlying@Gmail.com  There’s an Email Link on every page.
