Holy Cow!

Holy Cow what a year! Busy busy busy!!! Between my work and our home business I didnt even fly this year! I should go to jail for that one.

My wife's business (that I help a lot with) has taken a bunch of our time. We have had a pretty good year in terms of orders and things keep picking up. Which is very good considering there are many people that are not doing to well. We started selling online, here is a link to that...

Waking Bear Studio

Currently it looks like I may get some plane projects worked on in February. Seems like that will be our slowest month.

Well have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

Bad Link

Seems I had a bad link for Gary's Corsair plans. I fixed it and you should now be able to get the .pdf file. Sorry for this taking me so long to fix.

Gary's Corsair Plans Added!

With permission from Gary himself I have added Gary's Corsair plans! Gary sent me an email and offered some additional info on this bird. Here is the email:
Feel free to use those plans and instructions any way you want. I haven't updated those plans at all. The elevator and rudder are regular plastic push rods and the ailerons are dual HS81's mounted in wings. The coro firewall is a real weak point so if I made any more they'll have a 1/4 ply firewall capping the 4mm coro forward fuse. The 4mm fuselage is wrapped around a 3/8" square cutting board ring that's glued to the coro and butts up against the back of the firewall. The firewall screws into the ring and is removeable for quick field repairs. Tank leaks are common after a bad crash. I have 4 of those Corsairs hanging in my laundry room ready for the 2008 combat season. It isn't as fast as the inline engine fighters the other guys have but it turns and loops on a dime at full throttle without snapping out.
I still have the original production model from 5 yrs ago. It spun into a perfect landing once after the wing failed.


If you build this bird send me a photo and I will post it on the blog! Send it to rpage at shol dot com

Almost spring!

Well spring is just around the corner (I hope!) and I need to start posting on this blog again! Winter has been tough on my father, his health still on the decline. Work has been nonstop and building has been nonexistent. Need to try and get a little bit back on track. I have a scratch built SE5A in the works that I hope to complete sometime this spring. When it is further along I will post images.

Make sure to get that field box sorted out and batteries charged!

Not such a good summer...

This summer has not been very good on the home front. My father-in-law past away from COPD. It was a two month battle that drained him and all of us.

Now my father is in the hospital for the same thing. Although he is not doing to bad, he is also not doing real well. Every time things start looking up something else causes another problem. We spend as much time with my father as we can and pray every day that he will get better.

My flying time has been almost zero as well as my building time. I will get back to this blog and posting updates. I am just not sure how soon. For all of you that keep checking back from time to time, thank you.
