Jet'n in Texas

I guess I have gotten carried away, because I am obsessive about Electric Jets. Yes, I have some prop driven planes, but the majority of the 20+ aircraft I have hanging in the living room, stuffed in to garage, stuck in a spare room downstairs and taking up space in the RV are Jets! Some foamy jets, some balsa jets, some composite jets, and most have retracts, they range in size from 64mm fan jobs like my Sapak Hawk, to a 110 mm Stumax fan, all the way to a 120mm XPS Dynamax powered AMD Hawk putting out 15 lbs of thrust,
Whats next? an A10 Warthog that I am working on...

Stay tuned

  1. FLyFly Hawk on 12 blade ChangeSun 90mm fan

    This is a video of a flight of my recently upgraded Big foamy BAE Hawk, I have had it nearly 3 years, but it was previously powered by a 1800 rpm/v out runner in a Wemotech Midi. I put this 12 bladed CS fan in, and it has a lot more thrust.

  2. Sequin 04/02/2010 Tom Perry's F16

    enjoy!

  3. Another great Sunday afternoon in Sequin

    Winds were in the range of 10-15 mph, but straight down the runway, so it helped to keep the heat off a little bit, as it tends to get pretty hot in Texas this time of the year especially on asphalt.
    The wind noise though on the microphone of the camcorder gets aggravating when you want some good video. Anyway, here is what was captured this weekend. (7-11-2010)
