That is pretty cool.

I found the Little Bird and the pilot and my favorite scalemodel shop..

The scale is 1:18; other helmets in this scale may fit, too.

Mine was from the 1/6th scale version which I found out they stop making. E-Bay time. Here's a link that I found while googling 21st Century Ultimate Soldier Collection.

I would imagine there is now going to be a run on GI Joe helmets at the toy store: "Honest, it's for my kid." :)

That's exactly what I thought! :D

Looks like I need to spend some more time on this forum. That's a great build!

Man, I have to say that the T-28 is really a nice plane to FPV. This foam version is a Bind N fly needing only a receiver and the FPV gear. It handles the weight just fine. They are available at a lot of hobby shops being a ParkZone. It doesn't need any mods to the stock running gear. It's less than $200 and can get airborne pretty quick from the box. It already has a BL motor and the stock speed controller is rated for 3s and 4s. I use a 2500 3s with great success but a heavier cam may tolerate a 4s concerning the CofG. NOTE Using additional servos for Pan and Tilt require the user to disable the BEC. No problem with the OSD but watch your timers. You can also use an external BEC. The stock airplane is already at it's max servo count for digital servo's using the BEC.

I will add that my P/T canopy shed its factory paint which had the velcro attached to it. No problem, I simply stripped the rest of the rubbery paint and the sticky velcro stuck to the bare foam very well. I test pulled a small section under the canopy and it pulled the outer skin off the foam with effort. The other canopys paint is still in tack. Maybe it was left over mold release or moisture getting under the paint. I'm not sure but it's a good idea to double check before you stick something to the painted surfaces.

Off to shoot some videos! My firewire cable cam in. I'll post them as soon as I can. I have to figure out how to work Vista's movie maker. :huh:

Nice looking Funjet. Do you have any photos of how you stuffed all the electronics in it? It's such a small model I can't imagine it was easy. :)

It's a lovely plane to fly, very stable and jet-like feeling. I just need to change my motor as I think I got a bad copy and the axle isn't perfectly straight and will vibrate at some RPMs, which is pretty annoying as the plane would otherwise be VERY smooth.

Yep, the funjet will happily do nice and enjoyable slow flight at 4-5A... as well as scream with 50A keeping all its stability once you hit the throttle, very very fun indeed :)

I really like your setup Kilrah, very clean. Good job. The funjet really is an exceptional platform for FPV.
