Welcome Mr Butman. Always good to hear from the builder. Nice craft.
Been tempted to try a "Geezer". I'v heard good things.

The Se-5A was built from a Megow plan and I have the plan and can scan it and send it, in a couple of pieces as my scanner is 8 1/2 by 11.
The "stained" struts are just 1/32 sheet pieces that have been covered with tissue using glue stick which I use for all the covering of my models.

It is a "Gizmo-geezer" unit and it is adjustable with 3 screws inset in it.
The web site is gizmogeezer.com and they are  located in Canada.  The prop is sorta free-wheeling!

Hi Mike,
Excellent Cool. The best thing going when I started was lipo's. So I have a lipo charger. But I would have to order the batteries.

Hi Mike,
Can you get me one of those phantom breeze set ups? Esc, motor, battery, Rx, servos? The works for one airplane?


Yes, I can. I have 1 or 2 cell ESCs (either is about 1 to 1 1/2 grams), plus spare Falcon "Breeze"s and a few NIP servos, too. Do you have suitable batteries and a charger?

TK,

He asks for $20  - $30 for the No-Cals. He flies then once or twice, then sells them. I bought a peanut 'Zipper' that got stuck in an updraft under the gym vent system for 2 or 3 minutes. I had to have it, and it wound up with Plantraco gear in it.

Here are a couple more of his model with Falcon "Breeze" block radios in them...

Cool SE-5!  Looks kinda simplified and maybe built from an old plan/kit.  Got plans?

-Tim

p.s. Pilot's kinda spooky in that one though...

Not only is Don a fine builder, but he is a prolific one as well. Whenever he come to Simi to fly indoors, has always has a dozen built models to sell - they make great micro R/C jobs!

Beutiful. Just freaking beutiful. I like the stained wood, and the flying wires. Its the details that set a model off. What kind of thrust button is that? Freewheel?
