Warm day today so we got the trailer out to the field. Aaron flew a 51 Slick at the field today but it was real windy and he only got a couple flights in. At home, not so windy, so, he decided to take out some frustration on the mini. What a killer plane. The plane takes abuse and still goes like a greasy ball-bearing on the upline . Anyway, he hits the trampoline and keeps it flying. Later in the video he lands on top of the trailer and takes right back off again. We hope everyone had a great weekend flying.
Aaron got some good stick time in at the gym again today. We had some new tunes to fly with and a couple good friends at the gym as well. Here is four and a half minutes of Mini Crack Yak good times. The plane is doing everything well right now. Aileron Servo is starting to strip a little again. Took the other ones that stripped apart and find teeth on the gears are missing. They are not handling the torque load being put into them by the servo motors very well. They keep on flying though. Don't overdrive them in the radio settings. That will help.
New digital servo got here just in time to get going today. Awesome flying today. Aaron was getting back into the rifle rollers and rolling in the downlines now that the roll rate is back in spades! Hope you enjoy the flight as much as we did.
This is why these Twisted Planes are so good for your flying skills overall. Fly, hit stuff, little crash here, little crash there... no problem whatsoever and no need to get CA or Welders to get the plane flying again. Pick your plane up and go about your business. Aaron is practicing all of his harrier rolling and getting them low.
Can't get enough of flying this Mini Crack Yak in the gym. Aaron has been doing great on it but we still need to get a new aileron servo. Only three flights in it started stripping and I don't think it's able to be rebuilt. It may slow down the roll rate or do something but you can't tell from Aaron's flying. Fun little plane and a better size for our gym which is small and only one basketball court. Might post some other videos of this and the standard CY tonight.
Aaron hit the gym with the mini for the first time today. It was great flying the Mini outdoor the last couple weeks but in the gym, this thing is awesome! It really does make the gym feel big and when he flew the standard CY right after this flight, the 32" plane felt like a 50CC gasser in terms of size. All good from here and hope you enjoy your Sunday!
