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. Another Weekend at Sequin, TX

    I had some problem this weekend that corrupted my SD card on my Camcorder. I had some pretty good video, but everything came up with "ERROR!" when I got home and tried to play them back. I used a disk utility on my MAC to recover what I could and I got some of the action. (not very much unfortunately).

  2. Military drone washing up on the beach! - Video

  3. Aborted Russian Carrier landing

  4. Battery powered AMD Hawk, will it fly?

    This will have the highest wing loading of anything I have flown thus far, so I'm sure I will be a little nervous when I maiden it. I would have maidened it a couple of weeks ago, but was taxiing out to the runway and the ESC poofed!.
    I have sent it off the the manufactorer (Kontronik) and they said it would be 3 to 5 weeks turnaround. So, hopefully I will get it back in a couple of weeks.

    This plane was bought used and previously was powered by a dynamax fan with a 90 sized ...

  5. My Spark is repaired!

    After last weeks failed landing where I rolled off the runway and broke the nose off my Spark, I thought I would never get it back together. In the end, the project sorta came together at the end, and she is flight worthy again. ( the nose damage is still very visible, but she shall fly.

    (If I go real fast, it won't be so noticeable )
