    Discussion The I’m Going/Went Flying Thread

    Maiden flight plus 3 more yesterday. 67" Laser did not disapoint. T-motor AM670 power system is super quite and smooth. Same for the Theta 989 servos in it. wicked fast, wicked strong, and wicked quite. First brushless servos I have ever used and I will be buying more.

    Scale Wendell Hostetler 30% Piper Cherokee Glass Fuselage Build.

    Ain't even got to be boys. My 6 year old daughter has about a dozen nice lego sets at this point. Though she is different from me at that age. I would build the kit and play with it then tear it apart and do my own things with it. She is very vigilent about keeping the set all together.

    I've always been a Dewalt guy but I have aquired a few of the M12 Milwaukee tools and freaking love them.

    The 'What did you do in your workshop tonight?' thread

    Picked up a project yesterday. Not sure when I will get to it. Nitro gear and old radio are going away. Would like to go gas on it but may go electric.

    It was in the mid 20's with 15-20 mph winds all day the day I cooked it. My smoker is just an electric deal so I had to wrapped up with a couple cheap moving blankets from harbor frieght to keep it from having to work to hard to maintain temp.

    The 'What did you do in your workshop tonight?' thread

    rough but fairly accurate wing area pulling measurements from my fusion model and doing the math myself is 2067 sq in. Yes tail parts are sheeted foam. They are designed to be built up but the friend that laser cut the kit for me didn't have any 3/8" balsa at the time to cut so I went the route...

    Mini lathe (and mill) discussion.

    Forget the keystrokes and pick up a space mouse. If you plan to use a 3D modoling software they are worth it. We use the 3Dconnexion brand at work and they are awesome. I'm sure there might be some cheaper options out there as well.
