Okay Chris, happy now??? :dancing-chicken: I'm a long time fan of Bud Nosen, not for any reason other than when I was a kid I used to see his full page ads in Model Airplane News and I thought he MUST be a bad ass to be building these huge planes, especially the Mustang! So while I wait to kick off a giant...

This would be for a project that is a long way down the road but in the event there's a good used one out there and I can get it for a great price then I'd buy it early. It's hard to believe there are very many of these engines, used, sitting on shelves across the country but that's why I'm starting early with my...

Same big Bush wheels, same big barn door flaps...but there are some awesome new enhancements. 6 part light system is one nice addition as...

So here is the back story. Had motor running great. The last landing, last time I flew it I had a dumb thumb moment and came in a little hard, landing gear spread and hit and broke the prop on the runway. I inspected everything I could think of it all looked okay minus the prop. Replaced the prop, while I was there...

I've flown quite a few small, palm size drones but this is the first where the control via App works perfectly and the stabilisation is superb. Match that with the 13 minute flight time and the integrated 720P HD video camera which can also take 5MP photots and I think DJI / RYSE have a winner. Can also take EZ...

The first in a series of short vids showing some of the best (and not so good) landings at Shows and Events I filmed at last year. Conditions aren't always favourable but, has to be said, the pilots always do their best to put on a great demonstration even if the wind is gusting across the runway....
