so, I don't do blogs much, mostly just to keep things in one area so I don't lose them. but I guess have a little to say about everyone on here.
this year has been a kinda tough year between a broken hand, a small flood, my grandpa fell on the ice and got pretty beat up, my cousin has a bone infection,and my mom lost her job, it has been kinda tough with all that and some more that I cant say, but about 2 months ago we had a big house fire, and I lost everything(clothes,rc planes, rc cars, rc helis) although no one was hurt which I am very thankful for, it is hard being in a hotel with nothing for awhile.
but everyone of my friends from rcg and the club are absolutely awesome.
I went from a pretty large fleet of planes and such to nothing, and now just about 2months later at the end of the year I have:
hubsan micro h107d
flyzone mini switch
electrifly pluma foamy kit with all electronics
eflite byp yak kit
a scratch built slowflyer from a club member
and $200 worth of parts and tools
including all new clothes from a member In our church.
it is pretty amazing to know that when, something happens, there are still people out there willing to help out and give without asking in return.
I just want to say thank you to anyone that helped out, because I really thank you. we will still be in a hotel for about 3 more months while our house is rebuilt. but at least I have some stuff to pass the time.

well I got this plane for Christmas and have finally got it almost ready for a maiden so I went outside to do a few tests with my motor and ESC(like check for heat) well I taxied all over my driveway just fine so I brought it over and stood in front of the tail so I can put the motor to full power.i slowly started advancing the throttle until I was at about half and all the sudden my prop flew off the firewall half came off and the fiberglass cowl is all messed up.(the pics are kinda blury) I emailed GP so we will see what happens but it is pretty sad that this would happen,luckly It happened on the ground tho and not in the air.i am getting tired of ARFs tho with all the problems I have had with them.
well i was at the park and broke my hand today.i have a temporary cast on right now but i might have to get a real one this week.i am really mad cause i might not be able to fly for awhile.also upset cause with only one hand i cant really build . I am in quite a bit of pain but i will survive Haha.
well everything went fine till I lost control of it and it went full throttle into the ground.i just got this for my birthday so it is super disappointing.the motor cut the and stripped,i did say stripped the wire on my esc and I am still missing a few chunks of foam.i think it was my esc cause it smelled kinda funny.
