Welcome to Jazzy's Flight Deck!

Are you a beginner RC airplane flier? If you are, I hope to provide valuable information to help you get off the ground! RC flying can be very frustrating, and this is quite normal, so don't let it stop you from enjoying this wonderful hobby! Once you get your plane up there, I promise you will be happy you did it! Please let me know if there's anything you'd like to see here or if you have any questions.

Aircraft listed in bold now have mini-reviews and/or videos.

Over and out!

Stryker RED

This is my new Stryker. I haven't clocked it yet but it's in the 90mph range - not ridiculous but respectable. It's a ton of fun to fly, and I did win a pylon race with it on crappy old batteries. I'm using the 35C Hyperion 2200 3S Lipos now, and she really screams. That's the only problem with Strykers - they are LOUD!

E-Flite Six Series 2700kV Motor
2200mAh 3S Hyperion 35C Lipo
HS-81MG servos
Castle BEC
AR500 Receiver
Align 35X ESC (heli ESC, has a nice LVC feature which shuts down slow)
Custom Painted with rattle cans (Testors Metallics, Black and Ruby)

First comment. Woohoo. ;)

I just want to say that you have a beauty there. "...in the 90mph range - not ridiculous but respectable." LOL. I haven't flown an r/c plane before, but I can't WAIT for the day when I'm to the point to where 90mph is merely "respectable."

Liking the blog so far, thanks for pointing me over here!

90 mph is nothing. During the race, I was only winning because I was cutting the corners better - the one who gave me competition was catching me in the straights. So, his plane is faster, he just wasn't driving it well. And he usually drives planes at 200mph... THAT is respectable :)
