Well, this morning I woke up at 6AM, when I heard HUGE explosion! I looked out the window of our appartment(7th story) and noticed a few cars on fire next to an unused building about 100 yards away. No one knows yet how it really happened, but they think it was a fireworks accident. We believe one cars gas tank blew up, and shot the car forward a few feet in to the brick building, and also cought the car next to it on fire. the explosion was so bad it shook our building. It ended up turning to cars into just hunks of chared metal, and it burnt the side of a SUV next to the to the car on fire. It was barreling thick, black smoke up above the 30 story buildings. The pics below are from 12 hours after the fire. I have video of it on fire, but the video camera battery is dead, so I cant load it to the PC yet.

I added 4 SFGs and, 2 T-wings to my SuperStar, and it is ALOT more stable now. Check out the video, this video has some indoor hovering in it.

BTW, sorry if the video is choppy, my PC was acting very slow while transfering the video.

Here it is!

Finally, after having to wait 98 days(waiting for new Tx to arrive), I finally got to fly, and maiden my Ikarus SuperStar Shocky.

Its not my greatest flying, but it was a little windy, it was my first time flying after 98 days, and it was the maiden flight. So anyway, here it is.

Well, it has been 64 days since I was last able to fly, I have since been without a radio, or a place to fly. This weekend my parents are going to go sign the papers on a new apartment that is about 100 yards from a public soccer field where I will be able to fly, I also won a new Futaba FASST 6ex on ebay, and I should receive it in about 2 weeks. So in 2 weeks I will be living in a new apartment that will be ALOT better than the dump we have been living in, and I will be able to fly again I currently only have a Shockflyer SuperStar running, I have a flying wing project I am working on though.

I will try to post pics of the new crib after we move in, and once I get to flying that Shocky there will be alot more videos on here.

This is my Blade CX2. If you are wandering how I made my tail bom, I just took a piece of carbon fiber that I was using as a motor mount for my Park 300 (the Park 300 is for sale, $35 shipped), then I got a carbon fiber rod, drilled a hole in the round piece of carbon fiber, stuck the rod through the hole, grabbed my CA, and accelerator, glued the rod into the carbon fiber piece, then glued it on to the Blade, I was finished. I also figured out another way of getting your canopy to stay on, I kept on having problems with the little rubber things coming out of the canopy, so I just put the canopy on, then slide the rubber things on the outside of the canopy to hold it on. Check out my pics below.

I love to fly airplanes, and my Blade cx2. I fly at Dennis Hobbies in Eastman< GA with the Middle Georgia Flyboys. My airplanes currently include a Ultimate FX 3D from E-flite, a Piper J-3 Cub from Flatouts, a Edge 540 from 3dfoamy.com, and soon I will have a Tribute FX 3D in my hanger too. You can see some pics of my airplanes below, and I will post some pics of my cx2 this weekend. If your are ever in middle GA, you need to come fly here at Dennis Hobbies, its kinda hard to find, but its an awsome field with an actual runway, and taxiway, not just a grass field. And about 50 feet from the runway is the hobby shop. In May of this year I am moving to Kiev, Ukraine to start a church there. I am trying to find out where the hobby shops, and flying fields are overthere, but I am not having any luck, so if you know of any then LET ME KNOW. Bryan Davison tought me to how to fly, and I gotta say that I got one of the BEST instructors out there. I cant wait till SEFF this year! Will thats about it for me, if your ever in middle Geogia contact me, we might go flying or something.
