Enjoy... Aaron maidened the NEW 51 today and he is going to LOVE the heck outta this thing. Thanks to Ralph for building it for him. In some ways he says it flies better than the old fantasy blue trim scheme Slick which was his favorite plane ever. Anyway... FUN FUN FUN when you can fly a nice 3D plane!!!
The new old MX2
She finally made it to indoor. Something tells me this one is going to be full of foam safe CA really soon
We do and we are thankful that we have it...
Indoor flying on a Dynamic Foamy D320 which is Bert's F3P type plane. It builds very easily and seems to fly very neat and clean. This was the maiden on this plane. We actually got the plane early this year but then indoor ended. Aaron built his own SFGs and put brakes on every surface... not that you are supposed to do that but he felt it would help the plane fly more slowly. So, it sat since March and came to life today. We are looking forward to flying and building this winter.
Took our little friend to the gym today for some indoor fun.
Aaron had a good time. The CY is the greatest thing since sliced bread... or, at least until the crack yak lite came out... You gotta thank Brad, Chris, Cody and the rest of the team for coming up with this series of planes. They opened a door to young pilots like Aaron. When we were at Nall in May, Aaron was flying Cody's Crack Yak and having a hard time keeping up with it quite honestly. Now, he needs the speed of it to test his skills. He is loving to fly it and we hope you love to watch.
We maidened this plane back in March. Many things have happened since then but the plane still flies well.
This is the milled version from Dynamic and it flies well enough to do you IMAC sequence and will stand up and hover as well. It's small enough that you don't have to run all your friends out of the gym when you fly. We like that. Space is an issue in small gyms and more than one or so 32" foamies makes almost any indoor space crowded. Pretty good flight time on 1S TP Batteries. The electronics are just the brushed motor and the rest of the guts out of the old E Flite Extra where it was a depron fuse milled out all the way through and then covered in Mylar. Dynamic makes a Yak 54 like that and it flies very well also. Anyway, video one and quite a few more to post tonight. Enjoy!!!
... the tough get crackin.
Check it out... gonna be soooooo sweet!
Aaron is trying to wring this thing out and it takes anything he can dish out... Crack Yaks are fun! The older glow guys get a kick out of his flying. Hope you enjoy the flight...
Impossible to survive if you were sitting in Aaron's crack yak to say the least....
So too bright... sunshine was beaming down on a nice fall morning
A friend gave Aaron another MX2 from Fancy Foam for his birthday. And, this was the maiden flight here in the yard since we can't wait for indoor to start... So, out with the old and in with the new we always say... You'll like the ending on this one
Thank you Brad from Twisted Hobbies for getting us a new motor in time before the withdrawal got to bad. Aaron was without a Crack Yak for more than a week
You get one of these planes from Twisted and you will never be the same again.
Nice morning so threw the CY up a few times. Aaron is flying it quite a bit because he can rock it out in the yard... hope you like it
A guy in the vehicle next to us at this weekend's fly-in crashed a brand new 100cc S Bach. Radio or Servo issue had it flopping over from side to side as it went lower and lower into the brush at SWAP (South West Area Park) in Baltimore. This is all that was left after we walked through 8 foot high swamp grass to go help the guy find it. Gotta help out a brother in need though because you know it would be no fun getting your plane out by yourself...
Patrick flew very well in both pattern and freestyle. Here is his freestyle sequence. Nice guys, Patrick and his Dad talked with us a bit and we had a good couple days flying with them.
Black Dirt IMAC Regionals again here. Best freestyle event of the year. I'd rather watch than take video but the video lasts forever. I hope you enjoy this flight. Chris is a super guy and he has been flying very well all year. This tops off a great season!
Here is Tyler's flight from this past weekend's event. Awesome flight on the 100CC AW Extra. Congrats on a FIRST PLACE finish!!! Great flow with the music!!!
This is Cody's Freestyle at our IMAC Black Dirt Regionals this past weekend. What a great pilot and a seriously fun flight to watch! Cody, thanks for all you do in this sport.
Flying in New York in the Black Dirt region. Cool stuff. Crack Yak is nice!
Aaron is flying pretty well on this Crack Yak. All Cody's fault... Thanks Chris Jewett!!! This plane is sweet!
