 I started this 1946 Piper Sky Sedan this airplane in real life was an experimental, unfortunately never made it to full production. The only known Sky Sedan is in a hangar in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I found the Popular Mechanics blueprints on EBay, and decided to build it.
  I've been working on it for a month now, and I'm almost complete. It's being converted from control line to Electric R/C the plane at present weigh's 9 oz. and I'll be using a Park 400 with a Castle Thunderbird-18 Speed Controller Spektrum AR600 receiver and a thunder power 910 mAh 3S 11.1V Lipo.

I'm trying to figure out how to reformat the pictures to fit the web sites requirements. I don't know how at this time but I have the complete assembly of the model from skeleton to completion.

60" Scratch Built P51D... Some Foam and some balsa. Took several different models and combined the best features of them into one plane. It has retracts and flaps along with all of the normal controls. It is all electric and I am planning on a 5 cell lipo for power... Mudman1959

The Piper Sky Sedan has a 36" wingspan I decided to Monokote it in Black and Beige, with an aluminum underbelly. the real airplane was all clad except for the cabin was red, with the trditional Piper Cub lightning bolt along it's side. I will also incorporate the Lightning Bolt with Piper Experimental along the engine cowl.

This is me and my sons first RC Airplane. A E-Flite Apprentice 15. We worked hard to get it by recycling lots and lots cans and bottles. We have been doing a lot of flying on our simulator and we have been buddy boxing with our local cub. We want to get a Parkzone T-28 next and want start kit plane this winter. We listen to the podcast when we are in our hobby room whether its new one or from the past.

Does this look familiar?





It should, this is the Micro SSX I won in June 2010 from RCRN's Tips and Tricks contest. I've had so much going on the past year that I'm finally getting around to assembling it. The Saturday that Irene was bringing us rain and wind in Central NC, I spent holed up in my hobby room assembling the plane. Hope to finish it this Saturday after Dad does some soldering for me (wife says no to a soldering iron right now) and maiden it Sunday at my club's Labor Day Cookout. This picture was taken at the very start of the project. It's currently sitting waiting for everything to be set in place for balancing, then it'll all be glued down and ready to fly.

Gear:
- E-Flite Park 250 Motor
- Castle Creations 9 ESC
- 2S 360mAh lipo battery
- 6x5 Orange GWS Prop
- 3x 5 gram servos
- Spektrum 6110 RX
- Spektrum DX6i TX

Maidened the Micro SSX Sunday 9-4-11. Definitely going to be a blast to fly. With a fresh charge, at WOT the thing will scoot! It was handling 5-10+ mph gusts without issue! Had a fellow club member hand launch it, trimmed it out and just kept it simply on low rates. I'm running 0% expo and had no problems controlling it. I wanted to keep it safe on the battery level, so after 6 minutes I set her down. Definitely looking forward to more flights with it. And to top it off, it's so quiet! Definitely the quietest electric plane I've heard. The giant yellow X decal shows up extremely well against the picturesque backdrop of Carolina Blue Skies and Jordan Lake.

I asked the wife to help pick out the decals and decal placement. She chose well and the plane looks good.

Glad you have finally finished your SSX, I have had so much fun with mine.  Off a paved road, it will takeoff is 3 feet and go vertical for ever!  Mine has suffered some, but holds together very well.  Got caught in a tree about 2 weeks ago and broke the tail, but a little Mercurty M5T fixed that right away. Here's mine

Micro SSX

Running gear:
Hacker A10-7L & GWS 7x3.5
Speckrum AR6300 and 3 DSp60J's

Buzz,
James Karpy of Millennium RC was on the show in Feb of 2010. Mine and Rcdude's  SSX were prizes from the shows.  I also personaly know two other folks that won big prizes, the Fun Cub and the Stryker.  A guy in the UK has also won swag from what I have seen and heard on the chat line during the show.
 
Well worth entering!
Ian

ids is correct. I won the Micro SSX ARF in June 2010 from the Tips 'n Tricks contest from my color scheme tip. ids won his Micro SSX ARF a month earlier. I also happened to win an RCRN drinking glass from calling in and naming the month and year from a Model Aviation magazine cover contest. I send my entries in every month for the big giveaways, but haven't gotten lucky on them yet.

Buz, just keep trying. Submit pictures of your planes, crashes, submit tips 'n tricks you have, and keep listening. And don't forget your monthly entries for the big giveaways!  You never know when your time will come!
