New Season Almost Here. R U ready???

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Well in Ontario we got our first taste of warmer weather this weekend and this week is looking good.

So with all the projects that everyone started over the winter, how many of you are starting to wonder where the winter went and what you'll finish?

I made my cowl, finally broke in my engine today but I still have to cover my New Bee and paint the cowl.

My Sukhoi, well, the tail is done

My daughter and Mrs. Nuker still need their 4-star 40's covered.

Lots of time left ..... isn't there

Oh well, the weather is warmer anyway ....

Anyone else have unfinished shop business?

It was a great afternoon, I finnally got a chance to fire up my Saito 270T.. All I can say is WOW!.... very easy to start and the sound of the twin 4 stroke is awesome! sound just like the OS300 Twin. Beautiful sound. This baby is going to go into the GSP Christen Eagle (Yet to get started ) Should be anytime soon, since this warmer weather is here to stay. Can't wait to get it started soon.

The other smaller 0s120 GSP Eagle is waiting to get firing up as well.. Another Christen Eagle on the way from Hobby Wholesale.( Took over a month finally cleared the custom , I would not ever order from Hobby wholesale again if they don't have any in stock.. LHS would already had the stuff arrived already ) Gees now I got 3 christen Eagles

I just need to order a new TX and I'm ready to go.

Not much going on in the shop. I rarely have time to do anything over winter. I've almost finished my Vmar Tomahawk but it doesn't have an engine yet.

Find me a the Milton Fair Grounds any sunny weekend.

Going to pick up my servos today off of Gary Maker, and then going to the hobby shop to get the finishing components/material for my 25% Cap 232. I can't wait!

I dont do combat Jim and I have about that many

Hey, the way some of you IMAC guys fly, you need at least that many planes as well! :P :P :P

Just kidding..

Me, I am pretty much ready for the spring. Just have to cycle some more packs, change out a few others and I'm good to go!

Cant wait!

Been waiting now for 3 weeks for my new 9C...

I've got 4 on the go for this year...

1. Got my 100' super cub almost ready yesterday some minor repairs after a dead stick on the climb out.

2. Just mounting the engine in my 1/4 Scale Lanier extra - rebuilt the fuse after using it as a lawn dart last season --- It's all covered just need to epoxy the box and install the engine and servos....

3. Still have to break in a new saito 150 for my SIG CAP 231

4. Just bought a 33% Bucker Jungmann at Aurora with a Moki 2.1 just need to add some minor touches and servos and I'm ready...

Man my thumbs are itchy....
Kick the tires and light the fires!
