    Mike. The T-34 is an E-Flite RTF 55" win span, Power 25 brushless Out runner 850 kv motor that came with everything DX6I and an E-Flite 3c 3200 15c battery.He picked it up off E-Bay a couple years ago for $90. For assembling it and test flying it he gave me a Free Wing F9F- Panther 64 mm Jet. I am also his Kids Official Instructor. LOL!!!!! I have changed a few items in it, such as an AR637T with AS3X and Safe. Also updated to a 40 amp ECS. Took me awhile to figure out the new Forward Programming. Now I can do it all from one of Our DX8's. All this new stuff is hard to keep up with LOL!!!!

    The T-34 is hard to find. There were not many out there. There are many T-28's out there in diff. sizes with or without retracts. I kinda like the looks of the T-38 Mentor. Might have to talk my brother into putting a set of electric retracts in it later.

    My wife likes to kayak. I store them in the garage with kayak hoists. Of course, no room in the garage anywhere else.

    Old school part making, with a table saw, scroll saw and drill press.

    Laminated the firewall yesterday, and cut it today. Fits like a glove!
    I’ll drill it before final mounting.

    Spent some time making another replacement part for the airframe. Fits between the two plywood sidewalls, under the firewall.

    Feeling like I have officially become the "go-to" guy for my neighbor and his son. Charging their rc truck batteries, fixing their connectors, and providing them with battery wisdom. LOL I was surprised to see that he was using a LiOn 2S battery in place of a LiPo. Charging the little 1500-1800 mAh batteries with a USB charger. Oooffff Stone age stuff right there HA HA Just bring them over and I'll knock a couple hours off that charge time I told them HA!!!!
    I've been busy tinkering on ten projects at once. Feels good to consolidate my fleet, and make room for a couple new planes. One is almost done (60"), the other bigga sista will be next. They are the same plane in different sizes... Never done that before. Assembly thread on the bigger one of course :D
