A New Night Flyer is born

Put together a new Night Flyer as I sold the AXN Clouds Fly. This is a well worn Super Cub that was given new life as a night flying model. In the night you can't see all her scars, just those wonderful LED Lights. A old Nippy Outrunner on 3S provides more power then you know what to do with. Yes it's converted to ailerons as you can see the wing lacks any dihedral. She should be a blast at the 09 NEAT fair.

T-Birds at Jones Beach Pratice day

With the expected crowds for this weekends Air Show, it was nice to see the Air Force Thunderbird's in a relaxed atmosphere. Free parking and no traffic was the icing on the cake.

Fairly complicated undercarriage can be seen in this dirty pass shot.

I'm struggling a bit with my Nikon. I hope one day to get pretty good with it.

I wonder, can you ever have too much sun? Guess I have a lot to learn about exposure.

Often I find myself switching back to the automatic modes just in case. That way if I'm botching the settings manual mode, auto will at least give me something.

If nothing else it was easier to photograph a full size model for a change today!

Put together a little foam pusher model for night flying. Phillip at PW-RC had the AXN Floater Jet imported for me.

While I have only flown it twice on a windy day I'm sure it will be a lot of fun based on some of the videos posted on the net.

Perhaps once I get the AXN Floater Jet flying well I can get back to my Multiplex Twin Star II Night flyer.
