    Turbo Commander – Maiden Flight

    This is the maiden flight of the Turbo Commander, a collaboration between Mateo Aguilar and Julian Melo. It was shot in early January 2014 at the Apollo Field in Southern California. The airplane and no bad tendencies, required just a couple click of elevator trim and it flew amazing. More information about the build process […]

  • Scratch-Built Turbo Commander

    Scratch-Built Turbo Commander

    The (Gulfstream? Rockwell?) Turbo Commander airplane has always had a special place in my heart; it was the plane my dad and his pilot friends used to fly. Its a twin-engine, pressurized, jet-prop 10-passenger airplane, better known as Bob Hoover’s acrobatic plane (his was a Shrike, a piston-powered Aero Commander variant). Over the holiday season, […]

    Scratchbuild: The CautionWing

    I just finished building my version of the FliteTest FT Versa, I call it the CautionWing.

I’m using a FrSky 4 channel receiver, 2 9-g servos and its powered by a 3,300 mah […]
