Today was my last day of school ... Wahoooo !


Today I am going with Mike AKA Bivens on RCG to FLI in Texas! It should be a real blast, with lots of 3D flying.

Then when I get back Sunday I leave for Indiana for CAMP AMA that I was lucky enough to be accepted to.

Pictures and videos will be taken and I will post them all when I get back.

My friend Jim at the flying field took some great pictures from last Sunday.

It was a great day full of flying. I mostly flew my 51" AJ Slick and 46" Vyper.


I have now completely changed radio systems, I have upgraded from my Dx7 to a Futaba 8FG.

I love my new radio, so many programming options and its very easy to setup. The only bad thing is I am still not used to flying with it, but now that I have my simulator cable I am getting more comfortable.

Four more days of school left and I can enjoy a full summer of flying!

I finally maidened my new gasser ... my new "pride and joy" 3DHS Extra 330.


My setup:

DLE-30
Hs-985 servos all around
Smartfly Dual Reg
Turnigy BEC for Ignition Regulator..
Three Thunder Power 1300 2s lipos.

It was a colder than usual day, and I was battling a nasty cold .. but I had to fly it.


I was so nervous as I never have built a gasser myself. After getting the engine started and basically tuned I took off into a nice headwind. It flew PERFECT. No trim and the CG was right on the money.


It flies absolutely incredible. Tracking in knife-edge was superb and flew precision very well. It also 3D's like a maniac ! Rolling loops and snap rolls were easy and rolling harriers were smooth as silk.

Tomorrow I am going to take it for a couple more flights after school ...

Here is the Mini Stormbach my friend Stormdriverone made ...


As you can see if flies very well and it very fun !

He added some right thrust and moved the battery and it flies even better than the original.

My friend has done a great job tweaking and getting the best performance out the this plane.

Here is some video of it being flown by me.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7PpMc...&feature=feedu

For a 20" wingspan plane it is totally 3D capable and is very fast also. It rolls very fast and is a ball to fly.

It also can be built in many other sizes.

Here is the thread for it: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1180912

Slick 51 at Peeler's Park (5 min 6 sec)


This is such a great flying plane.

Very stable in post stall flight yet has the ability to fly fast and be precise.

I must say that SEFF 2011 was a great event and I had a BLAST.

It is probably one of the best run events in the country, everything went off without a hitch.

I myself only managed to take four planes down to SEFF, my 46" Vyper, 42" Slick, Extra 330 EPP Foamy and my night-flyer Cub.

I only flew my 42" and my 46" as it was very windy both days I was their, but I was still able to get many flights in. I hadn't flown my 42" in awhile but it still preformed great! I really like the way this little plane flew. After the three days I was there I managed to break the landing gear off both after some batteries dropped on me and the wind got me. Nothing that will take more than five minutes to fix.

I met some cool guys and really got to see some of the best pilots in the world fly.

I also flew a couple planes such as:

Mikes AKA Bivens 68" Nightflyer Velox
ctunders AKA Chris 89" AJ Slick electric
Horton AKA Noll Epp Extra at night

Thanks guys !

Towards the end of the event I did break a wheel on a landing and had to get a replacment. I gotta thank Ben at 3DHS for hooking me up and getting me back in the air !

Also towards the end of SEFF I talked to Ben at 3DHS ... I decided that I needed to take an 89" Slick of my own home and he gladly helped me out.

I am now the owner of a 50CC airplane. It should be a blast !

Hopefully the weather will calm down soon for some more flight video and also I should be able to start the finishing work on my 72" Extra.

That brings my current 3DHS fleet to 7 and the New Buck.5 will also be mine when it comes out.

I am one step closer to finally getting my 72" in the air !


My DLE-30 came from Tower Hobbys today! It looks like a sweet engine and it should be a great performer.

I decided to go gas after realizing buying batteries would be to expensive.

Its been very windy lately but I have managed to get some flying in.

Wamsy55 - Slick 42 - Sbach Foamy (10 min 56 sec)


Here is me flying my 42" Slick and Stormdriverone's cool little Sbach foamy.

I hadn't flown it in awhile ... but it stills flies great.

That same day I did manage to rip the landing gear out of my 51" Slick ... but hopefully I can fix it tomorrow before SEFF.

SEFF is a few days away and I can't wait ... I will have the camera rolling and hopefully meet some new guys and get some good flying in.

I will be their Thursday night through Saturday night !
