I'm putting a new jet (Ripmax Xcalibur) together for Neil Stevens and I still have my Tigercat to build, a Sebart Miss Wind 50 to repair (broken by previous owner) and a couple of refurbs to do.
The jet will be done this year, but the others.......Who knows!!! Shocked

I am building a FPV base station, you have already seen the goggles but I have started the case with 9 inch monitor and everything you need to run out of the case.

We were only saying Wednesday evening just how Ebay was! and then this happens, I ordered two 5.8ghz fpv gear and Ebay have just contacted me that the seller has done a bunk apparently he sold the same item 40 times took the cash and legged it. Poxy little Chinese tosser. I have to wait another 20 days for resolution.Evil or Very Mad

So it has knocked me back until the new year as I do not want to order anything not just from EBAY BUT hobby king or any other due to the xmas mail, you can guarantee anything I order now will get lost in transit.Evil or Very Mad

Not a winter build as such, but a repair job, sent the Stuka engine back for a repair after a on going problem bloody thing came back with the choke shaft broken ,tried to get a new part but no luck ,so set out to make a new shaft. Now i'm not in love with metal work, but though I will give it a go must say I'm very pleased with the outcome.



Great looking engine




part broken new bit now fitted




repaired shaft working great well pleased
