beautiful shots of the FW-190, glad to see they didn't get scared and put crosses on the tail instead of more historically accurate symbols. What is the location of the replica?

Funny you should mention the swastika. Photobucket took down that image, but I asked them to restore it and apparently they have. I had an issue once before with a museum sign that had a portrait of Hitler and a photo of him standing in the touring car which was the exhibit the sign was for... they put that back, too.

Now this was FUN! Gift my wife gave me for Christmas.
T-6 Texan trainer. Will hold off on other wing shots as advertises the firm offering the rides - but was fun none the less. Only downside, it was a cloudy day.
This was a video capture so not photographically that clear.

My first R/C plane - Begining
Before flying on R/C plane is necessary a training. For this I'm buy Flight Simulator
After training buy my first R/C plane 300Class-Wingdragon Brushless
Plane in home. What in box
Wings. Top - training, bottom - pilotage
Instructions for: plane, FMS simulator, Battery Chargers, Transmitter, Simulator Cable
Main landing gear, Simulator Cable, Vertical tail, Horizon tail, propellers
4-channel Transmitter, Battery Chargers Power Supply, Tools and parts, Battery Chargers, Li-Poly Batterys
My first R/C plane - Defects
Found some defects, fortunately not the critical.
Cracks on a fuselage it is not critical - the tail beam enters deeply into a fuselage
Speed Controller isn't fixed and dangles over servos on wires. Glued over the receiver on a bilateral adhesive tape
Short screws of fastening of tail unit. Must be at least 15 mm
Also causes suspicion a fairing of the main landing gear. The very shaky. Fastening places to racks cyaoacrylate glue.
My first R/C plane - Upgrade
After having read forums carried out some upgrade of plane.
Attention! This material has exclusively information character. The author doesn't bear any responsibility for consequences of application of these upgrades.
Fuselage covering by the reinforced adhesive tape. Allows to make "Belly landing".
Covering by an adhesive tape made with hair dryer. Temperature of air stream near 100°C. On a hand which we smooth an adhesive tape is dressed a woolen mitten
Covering all carrying surfaces by adhesive tape. Buy here such wide (25 cm) adhesive tape
Comparison of rigidity of wings. At the left - not covered wing. on the right a wing covered by an adhesive tape.
Strengthening of fastening the stabilizer by the reinforced adhesive tape.
Experience showed that it is necessary to do similar strengthening on vertical tail, in a place of its fastening (see more - First flights)
