Radio Control Imperial Star Destroyer


Picked this RC Spaceship up from sg-ideas.com while I was out at the Toledo Weak Signals RC Show. They actually were not selling it at the show, but I would not let them leave until they sold it to me. :)  You can get the plans from sg-ideas and all the components needed to build your own. They have many other designs as well.

I do not know about you, but it almost looks like an Imperial Star Destroyer that was in those Star Wars movies. NAAH! No way, looks can be deceiving  This is not a Radio Control Star Wars Imperial Star Destryor, it is just a Radio Control Sci-Fi Spaceship that almost looks like one.

Happy New Year Everyone! R2-D2 is coming alonf and I have made lots of progress as I come up to year into the R2 build. It could be faster but I am happy with how the R2 is moving along.  For years I lurked on Astromech.net and the R2 Builders Club on Yahoo groups but in January 2012 I began ordering parts. My first construction began in February 2012. Its now 2013 and R2-D2 is staring to look like himself.

Here is the current state of R2-D2:

1 Year Anniversary of R2-D2 Build
