Apprentice STS found in the jungle. (Still mostly there). I have recovered one of the wings that fell. The rest is still tangled up in a tree. If you think it's yours, contact me for the coordinates and to get your wing.

Durafly P-40. Found in the jungle. (Still there). If you think it's yours, contact me for the coordinates. It looks like it's been there for a pretty long while.

Night Timber X in perfect condition. Found in the jungle at: 33.34108°N -117.154°E I saw it from a jungle survey video I took with my commander and a gopro. Easiest recovery I've ever done because it was so close to the road and right on the ground. I was really surprised to see absolutely no damage, just some weathering on the stickers. It landed in a nice soft bed of leaves. After drying it out I plugged it in and verified that all the electronics are functional.

Freewing L-39 Russian camo scheme. Found in the jungle at : 33.34215°N -117.1545°E The battery was damaged and in a dangerous state so I safely disposed of it. I still have it's balance and power connector. I did minor repair to the light pod on one of the wings because it was about to fall off. Plugged it in and verified that all the electronics still work. It was up in the top of a tree (you can see in the picture). After a rain storm it had fallen. Surprisingly little damage from the fall. I'd add more pictures but the website doesn't let me. Also, there is the very beginning of a hornets nest inside the fuselage.

F-16 "65th anniversary." found in the jungle at: 33.34216°N -117.1548°E It was up in a tree (seen in the picture at the bottom right). After a rainstorm it came down in a few different pieces. I re-attached the bombs/missles and replaced the stripped aileron servo. There is still some damage on one of the wings but all the electronics still work. After finding it I went back and found the magnetic nose cone near the tree it fell from.

 FT night radian. Found in the jungle at: 33.34287°N -117.1557°E The sticker with the faa and ama numbers is very water damaged so it's hard to read. This is what I think it says: FAA#: ####### AMA#: FA3T3TEANNE I can provide a picture of it if you ask. This website only allows me to upload 2 pictures. It was buried so deep in the leaves that just the very end of the tail was sticking out. (See image). I couldn't find the hatch or the battery. One wing was folding so I imbedded a pushrod as a spar to strengthen it and cleaned it up a little. The electronics work but there is a flaky power connection somewhere. I haven't been able to resurrect the LEDs either.
