Hey all,

Here a little update since I purchased the new course on May 7th.

I have completed my first scratch build, the F35V2, an obvious choice. I used scavenged pink from Home Depot that I got for free. I was over there looking at their foam to see what was available locally and I saw two big sheets of it in the trash that I quickly got permission to take for free. I also bought three sheets of DT foam. I will post a picture of the completed plane if anyone is interested. So my first plane cost about $2.50 for the foam to build.

The build went fairly easily as I just followed along with Scott on the course video and just watched the clips (many times) then just repeated. I used tiles plans which actually taped together quite well using Scotch tape. Hey, LukeWarm, when you say hot glue melts foam you were not kidding. Learned that lesson very quickly.

I am also using ClearViewSE for my simulator time and that is going ok too.

I decided to convert one of the Walmart gliders into an RC flier similar to HawkSky as my first plane to destroy in my attempts to learn how to fly. I have that conversion pretty much done as well. Just waiting for my electronics.

So you might be asking yourself why is he not flying anything. A bit of procrastination and I am having hard time finding the parts from the master list. Every web site I go to the parts are all sold out. RCPowers is just too popular. And it takes me a lot of reading and looking to find an alternative part. I nice addition to the master list might be a pretty good description of the part + specs so an alternate is easier to locate. Does that even make sense?

As soon as I get my electronics, etc. I will post another message.

So far so good, thanks everyone, especially Dave and Scot.

I'm not. You are flying the simulator, at this point it's the best thing to be flying. Practice flying a basic pattern, figure eight pattern, and then touch and go...when you can consistently fly the simulator and land every time, it's time to start preparing that pre-flight checklist..

Those walmart glider conversions are fun...I have built one of those and also two of the little multiplex glider conversations, one had a microjet on it, ...

I already have these posted in the Resources
Thread.
The motors and servos are the main ones you would need the specs on.
All the rest have enough information for you to easily find alternatives.

These are the motors that are in the Master-Parts-List

Dave and Scott says they are all basically the same motor.
