10/02/2008- Well the flying season is slowly coming to an end, and the building season is starting to kick in.

While I was down there, I managed to take a few pictures, and in the midst of taking pictures, my camera decided to stop working on me. I did manage to get a few shots, but I would have loved to been able to take more. Click here to see more!

05/20/2008- I finally have been able to get a few updates on the progress of the QQ Python. It's now finished, and has flown a few times. I will post more info on the results as I get a little more time to fly it. Here are a few pics of the final assembly. Click here!

05/02/2008- Since coming back from Toledo, I had ordered a 100 cc QQ Python. I just recently received it, and since I figure I can get this done fairly quickly, I have put aside the 260 for now. Here are some pics of the Python build. Click Here!

03/13/2008- In the last few weeks, I've been in my basement, fixing up some various projects that I had set aside for the winter. One of them being my Rafale. Last year I had a bit of a mishap with it, in that I broke off the nose wheel while trying to land on a rough grass field. Once that happened, it naturally caused other damage, and I had various cracks throughout the nose of the Rafale. I managed to temporarily fix it up, and was out flying the Rafale in no time, but it sure wasn't pretty looking. With that being said, I decided that since I had a little time, I would strip down the nose section, refill the cracks, and try to make it look pretty again. Click here to see what I did!

02/27/2008 - Lately I've been going to some indoor events, and figured I would need something a little more suited for indoor flying. I just finished off a few indoor foamies called the Vrolet. Click here to see more!

02/27/2008 - I took a little break from the 260, to finish of some other projects that I've wanted to finish. One of them is an Extreme Flight 47" Yak 54. Here are some pics, and info on the Yak. Click Here!

01/23/2008- I know that I've been real slow as of late to update things, and it's just been a busy past few months. Things have settled now, and I should be updating more frequently. Back in October I was at the Tucson Shootout, supporting our Canadian representatives. They all did really well, and should be congratulated. I took a few pics while I was there, and finally got a chance to go through them. Click here to see!

01/01/2008- I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and all the very best in 2008.

11/23/2007- Things have been a little busy for me lately, and I haven't had much time to post any updates. I was at the 2007 Tucson Aerobatic Shootout this past October, and I have some great shots which I will be updating soon. I also have a an Aeroworks 40% Extra 260 that I will be building over the winter, and updating as I go along.

11/02/2006- It's been a long while since I've updated this page, and I have to apologize, as the last year has been a pretty busy one for me. In the last year I was married, had our office move,  and moved into a new home. That being said, it has made it very difficult to update things on this site. Over the course of the summer, I did do quite a bit of flying, but more so on the IMAC contest circuit, and very little in between. I'm hoping now that things have settled down a bit, that I will have a little more time to keep this page more updated with new information.

I'm also back to working on the P-47 Click here for some updates. I will continue working on the P-47, although I am expecting a Carden 37% Yak 54 to arrive shortly. Once the Yak arrives, I will more than likely switch over to building the Yak.

10/08/2003- After partially building the Top-Flite P-47, and further researching my interests in building a scale P-47, I've decided to stop any further construction. The reason is that after some careful thought, I decided that I wanted to build a more scale version of the P-47. The Top-Flite kit is a very nice looking model, and I'm sure would build into a great flyer, but it lacks some of the fine detail I am looking for. Now I'm sure with a little extra effort and some modifications, the scale detail I'm looking for can be accomplished with this kit, but the time and effort required would be a little more than I am willing to invest. So I've decided to purchase a Yellow Aircraft P-47. The Yellow kit is a little more scale, and already has some of the finer detail I am looking for, built right in. My time is limited these days, and I would rather a project that didn't require as much modifying to accomplish the detail I am seeking.
I do apologize to any who were following my work. I have received a lot of emails regarding the construction of the Top-Flite kit, and I'm sure many were waiting to see how it would come out. Again, I do apologize.
Although and for any interested, I will be documenting the building of the Yellow P-47 in it's place. Click here for details
