Two new airplanes

I got myself two new airplanes this summer at an RC plane auction that was organized at my local RC flying club FK Gamen.

The first one is a J3 Cub ARF model by Thunder Tiger with a wingspan of about 2.2 meters. The model came with a 4-stroke nitro engine that I have replaced with an electric power system. I will make a new landing gear with suspension and fix the motor cowling. I will probably add some kind of gyro stabilization also, this plane is surprisingly unstable in windy conditions.

The second plane is a Flair Magnatilla. The wingspan is about 1.6 meters. This is my first airplane with a nitro engine. A 4-stroke Saito. I will probably add a steerable tailwheel and make a few other adjustments over the winter.
