Confessions of an Styrofoam Junkie

I admit it, I'm addicted. As we progress further in this hobby, I'm finding that a few scrap pieces of foam, some hot glue, and a few servos can create an airplane almost as fast as I can destroy it.



Some video of my Japanese Zero, built over the course of 2 evenings. Flies great!!

P-38 Film Clip

Did a little flying with Dean today at the field by the storage place. Dean took some shots of my P-38 in action and I edited it together as a mini film. Just something to show ya'll that it does actually fly!

The F4U Corsair (Pamela Jean)



I have always loved remotes, anything that I can operate with a remote I am happy. My wife knows this all to well, from ever light in our home being remotely operated,to all the remote controlled toys I have around the house. My wife has always bought me for Christmas and birthday's some small remote toy. But last Christmas she bought me a large remote controlled Helicopter and that did it, sense then I have gotten into Rc airplanes. and my wife brought me a T28 trojan for my birthday, after that I started building planes from kits, My latest is a F4u Corsair that I have dedicated to my wife, by calling it the Pamela Jean. Thanks Dear!!

Update



Since the last post:

Dan's P-38 was rebuilt and successfully flown twice before another tragic crash. She's currently back together, awaiting a decent flying day to get airborne again.

Dean built a Yak flatout foamy and smashed it several times before flying the hell out of it. He then destroyed it after a few more flights, and put together another of these inexpensive 3D planes.

As the days get shorter (and soccer season is in full swing), we have less time to fly. It gets frustrating, so we stay inside and build planes.

Dean is just about finished his Corsair...and did a sweet job on it, can't wait to see it in the air.
