Agreed, I like it. Is there a reason you haven't made a full-on Seahawks fighter jet of some kind?

I wanna know when he's going to build the appropriate sized carrier for it to land on.

Yeah, the reason is I am such a scale-geek. I tend to fly jets and warbirds that are based on real liveries. Although I am due a fantasy scheme...And the Seahawks would be the perfect scheme!

So maybe this year I'll do a Seahawks jet!

Have you considered working with any of the jumbo scale stuff, Todd? Do you have something already, perhaps? I am looking forward to a new R/C challenge as I've done about all I can do with cars and trucks (built an X-Ray T4 touring car that clocked 122mph and an RC8.2e that clocked 112mph), so now it's time to move up. I'm of the impression that a larger, heavier aircraft, design limitations notwithstanding, should be easier to control than a smaller one. What say you?

Definitely considered and it's on my to-do list...Mainly it's a money thing. The bigger the more expensive as you know. I've been flying foam-class warbirds for most of my 9 years or so flying RC planes and outside of the composite here and there, I haven't really moved beyond the foam, 67" wingspan class. I have my eyes on the CARF models...

Image

110" wings, fully composite, museum-scale quality...Just nuts, absolutely nuts.

Of course the kits alone are $4K.

Ouch.

As far as your question about larger aircraft being easier to control, yes, in essence, that is true. Just like a tiny boat on the water is going to be bounced around like crazy and hard to control with moderate waves versus a large ship that cuts right through the same waves with no trouble. But it's a bit more complex than that as you can imagine. Larger scale usually means closer to full scale performance and tendencies. Wing loading is the key. Where these smaller warbirds I fly have a lot of tolerance, the larger warbirds are much like their big FS sisters and will tip stall on a dime if you're not on the sticks 100 percent of the time.

If you're looking to move into the airplane world from cars, definitely invest in an RC simulator first, like Real Flight. It comes with a transmitter and within a couple weeks you're developing muscle memory that will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars by learning on cyberplanes, not the real ones.

Trust. Me.
