 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.

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.

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.

Here's mine

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!

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!

It has taken me 9 months to build and then maiden this Reactor Bipe. Photo taken mid maiden; which was awesome. Barely took 10ft on roll out to blast into the sky. Handled nicely, it will be a barrel of fun once I get it back in the air. Came down and landed well on the grass.  Now need to finish the decals and charge batteries

This 63" TopFlite P-47 was my first kit build. It took about 9 months and was a completely insane choice for a first kit, but it went together really well and I fell in love with kit building in the process. The plane is easily the best flying model I have in my collection. TopFlite did an amazing job on both the model itself and the plans / directions. Highly recommended!

I really did not know anything about it, so I wrote a note to Ralph Cunningham; the following is his response:
I make the g62 lite, it's stock except for the electronic ignition...I remove the magneto rotor and source coil, and the supplied carb rotator insulator block...I make a new block from 3/8 thick G10 epoxy board to rotate the carb so the shaft is parallel to the cylinder, for straight pull to the throttle servo without bell cranks....I cut of the rear extension of the crank to save weight, and make a hollow rear mount with electronic ignition inside, using the stock G62 spark coil....The mount is 3 inches square and has 14-20 threaded holes in the corners for mounting...The ignition is connected to the battery through an RCA jack in the side of the mount...
The 62 lite weighs about 4 lbs without the muffler...No other mods are made to the engine...It will start with one finger with the electronic ignition....The ignition has a lifetime guarantee...A conversion is $150 with my mount, or the conversion can use the RC EXL separate ignition with a flat plate mount to make the engine shorter...
I make a new prop hub using 2024 aluminum, so the length of the engine can be made longer or shorter than the standard 6 5/8 inches...The prop bolt is tapped 10-32 for a spinner bolt....


I look to hang out with you soon, unfortunately my schedule now has me in Bama Thurs-Sunday, every week for the foreseeable future...

Thanks for sharing the flight. Wasn't it cold on your hands flying today? I just finished installing my heater in flying glove but you my friend, got Kahoonas, A minute or two and my hands are done . Push the CG back a tad and slow down and fly closer with more throws as you get use to. The plane tracks well and capable of awesome handling .......whats the recommended setup?  the 3s battery can be 1800 or 1500 mah maybe?  Try a lighter shorter flight and then you can drop the springs and play with that magic spot....have fun with it and any mishap? save the pics for Mercury moments......all planes have an expiration date ........shame we just don't know when.

Cr@sh... Right now I'm using a 2250 mah 3 cell... I will have to buy some smaller batteries. As for the CG I was thinking about moving it back just a bit and trying it again. Yes it was cold! No snow here yet... We did have some but it all disappeared.  I am sure a Mercury Moment will sneak up on me soon, to soon! This is my first 3D capable plane and I have never played with a plane that could do it before, so 3 mistakes high is the rule until I get used to it... Mudman1959  (Lee)

Lee my good friend , just make sure you enjoy your Holidays and know this.... your video says you'll be having the plane for a while , a few mistakes high works but the confidence learning all the moves is exactly how I learned. I flew for two years and was average with flying ability. After a profile or fanfold I had no problem dorking......I was able to learn all the 3D moves and then some. no fear of crashing takes way that slow learning curve. Have fun with that puppy and remember ,it was free Big smile  Buy a second one from Cliff as a backup and see how quick you learn those moves you were hesitant to try. So......... do ya miss the show like I am? I had to cut back on purchases with RC for a little but I have plenty to build...... Have a Blast Lee, and share more clips of the fun !

Finally got 5 good flights on my Micro SSX I won quite some time ago. I had 2 problems: 
1) Aileron low rates were set to 100% expo. Dialed that back to 10%.
2) Prop selection. The 6x4 slow flyer prop made the plane blistering fast. Put on an APC 6x4e prop.

With those two fixed I am enjoying this little plane. Snap rolls on high rates with speed are a blur.

I overlooked this post;  will take some this week.  Your Nightflyer looks SWEET! Are you running it on 3s?

This P-47 has become somewhat of a project for an ARF and I am currently repairing some ribs in the wing. 

I have been busy building though, I got my twin 30mm edf Guillows F-15 conversion completed and maidened.  Roll authority was strong with the elevons, but heavy loading made it a lawn dart.  I also am finally completing final electrical, power and FPV installation on my Windrider Queen Bee.  This one is going to be my flagship. 

The Bee is outfitted with a Scorpion 4025-12 swinging a 16" folding CAM on 6sShocked
DragonLink on Futaba 9c for control
Lawmate 1.2 1000mW with GoProHD for video
Fatshark Dominators on the ground

The last items I need to do on it are to sleeve all control rods to prevent bending, and continue to dremel the portion of the back plate of the motor mount so that it is flush and not in the way of the prop. 

Here is a "Before" I will post the "After" later.

I was looking into the transmitter and RX last night . I have a monitor and suitcase I'd like to start with. The glasses will be later on. I may need to film sailboats racing from shore. FPV would help me go after angle and specific boats upon request. LI sail magazine has work for me this summer .Let me know your progress Man, I'm not sure about power, range or frequency, 900 or 5.8 Gh . Cliff has a TX & rx at I think at 1500mw, with a range of 1 Km or two miles. I may start with that ? Telemetry and displays are not needed cause I'm filming landscapes or landmarks with go pro hero. Look into the sunex lens BsBauman, I found the flat lens is "great" for flying..... the fish eye is nice too.  The video is original lens  Wink

Here is my latest build... It is a foam copy of a Carl Goldberg "Jr. Tiger" that is all cut by hand and hand painted. Going to maiden it soon, just a few more minor things to finish up on it before I do.

That is Awesome!

I have been lucky enough to get a few other birds in the air since my last posts.  Here is my Top Flight giant 1/5 scale P-47 with a G-62 Ralph Cunningham up front.  85 inch ws

Big thanks to Cliff and the team at the shop for helping me get this one in the air!  Without their patience and help troubleshooting, this would have never left the groundClap.

A Labor of Love... "Wally" a tribute to my Dad, Wallace "Wally" D. Chamberlin who passed away several years ago. This is a stand off scale of a 1939 Rearwin 9000L. It is a RC, all electric scratch built and hand cut from a set of copied plans by ME Salvay and Don Alix from Model Airplane News 1967. I built it using foam and balsa and it is covered using Dollar Tree foam board with the paper removed. I painted it to match the last paint scheme it had when my Dad owned his. His plane is still around and is currently in Vancouver WA. I hope to someday get photos of both the model and the real airplane together. Will I fly it? Well that is yet to be seen... After spending a year and a half on the build and what the plane means to me... I might. I still need to balance it and set up the radio gear. If it does fly, a video and photo's will be taken...  Smile

Cliff... I got bored and it is way to cold outside to fly... Cry   SO.... I decided to build... Clap
It will be someday a 80" wingspan PBY Catalina but not your average balsa model. This one is made with Dollar Tree Foam board. The build is progressing good and I am starting on the tail surfaces for it...

Great job working with dollar tree foam. I don't think I could build that clean even with depron or fanfold........ Are all the formers foam or some balsa? Keep up the cool project and post your sucsess with the maiden....hats off to ya !  Thumbs Up

All foam except where the wing brace is an parts on the tail for a bit more strength. Starting to get the parts cut for the wing... it will be in three parts with the center section with the motors, permanently attache to the center support. Two detachable wing outer panels with retractable floats. I need to get some of the electric gear for it so I can finish the fuselage and seal it along with the aluminum tubing for the wing support and joining. Lots to do yet!  Thanks...  Lee  (mudman1959)

Understand the fear of first flight with the amount of time put in to your wonderful project. I always laugh to myself when I pull it off from a scratch build with no plans......but only after I convince myself that its no longer a loss if I total it. Then I realize I'm really enjoying the experience no matter how it turns out ....MudMan, I'm sure she'll fly true and float but make sure you share the fun with your first flight video. .Thanks for the post with great progress and know this my friend, I've not really flown this season yet cause of home improvements and other hobbies............ but thanks to your pic, I'm heading out the door with my C -130 fully inspired.
