                  About the "Jet Hangar"             

On this site, I am consolidating all the information I can on RC Jet Aircraft. From Turbine Manufacturers, Jet Kit companys to all the nuts and bolts it takes to put one of these puppies in the air! Plus a few surprises in the "Corners of the Hangar"

Check back often as new stuff is added all the time!

I'll give a bit of background on how I got involved in RC Jets. Some building instructions, as well as any tips or tricks I've acquired through the years.

And, of course, lots of pictures of my past and present JETS and of me enjoying myself working on 'em.
ENJOY!

Some of my background in RC

I have been building model airplanes since I was a wee tyke living on a farm in northern Indiana.(Albion) I started with Ukie's made out of cardboard 'cause I didn't have the cash for balsa!

Started RC in 1972, and have been flying DF jets since 1976.

I scratch built an F-8 Crusader powered by a Midwest RK .049 fan unit. I based it on the old Berkley Ducted Fan free flight. (I had converted one to U-control in 1958. I never got that danged OK Cub to start in the plane tho! Even With a recoil starter I added to it!)

I flew the RC version, but most of the time the TD .049 would quit after the Bungee Launch! It would go up I'd do a Split Ess then land down wind. Only got about 5 or 6 flights with the engine running.

I then went to the Byron F-16 in 1976. (I've had 5 of 'em)
The first one with retracts at the Byron Expo in 1982 was mine! (I turned down 1500 bucks for it)

I have a .020 Cox TD powered F-16 in 1/25 scale. It was the world's smallest RC DF in 1986. It weighs 9 oz, and has ailerons and full flying stabs.

A couple of byron MiG 15's in there also.

I flew competition sailplanes for about 10 years. (Only on Sundays, at the contest. I am a Level IV LSF)

Also have a few Giant scale, I'll post pictures on a "Planes I've Had" Page

In 1996 I started working with

when I built three of the origional MIG-29's. Two for TGA and one for me! I painted all three in the Ukraine air show paint scheme.

I bought,built and flew a few

I then went on to Design/make all the Plugs and molds for the "NEW" All Composite Version of TGA's Prototype (NOTE: I didn't design the aircraft just the plugs and molds for all the changes)

MIG-29 FULCRUM

I went on to do the molds for the

F-15 ULTRA EAGLE III

and the F-15 Ultra Eagle III Dynamax and the F-15 Ultra Eagle III Turbine versions of Steve Gray's design.

I have been a Topgun Rep, Flying and working trade shows with Steve, for five years.

My entry into the exciting TURBINE realm is with Steve Gray's TGA design: The

TOPCAT

Another of Steve Gray's TGA designs: The

R.A.T.T. (DRAGONFLY)

I have been known to build a jet or two for other Pilots, too. If you need more info you can reach me by
