Went in backwards this afternoon. Lost it in the sun - didn't get my orientation back in time. However, the damage was minimal based on the angle it went in...

This is Franks Boogie Hawk. This is the most spectacular EDF that I have ever seen in person. This model will pull up to 112A on 5S - just over 2000W! We dopplered it at 124mph during the filming of this video (the audio was from another source closer to the pass). This model is available from Velocity-RC at http://www.velocity-rc.com

Now that the sun is shining and the wind is calming down (somewhat) we can call the indoor season over. But it was a lot of fun - this video is all about the highlights of this past season. Mostly crashes, some other stuff thrown in there as well. Enjoy!

Here's a video of one of our local fliers' models - the motor is a special treat!

Another quick video of my Tiny 3D EPP. I've moved the CG back and the battery is above the wing. Flies even better!

We had a break in our west coast monsoon this past weekend, which gave us some great flying weather!

I got this heli back in August and promptly crashed it. It has slowly made its way back to the flight line - here it is! This is a very stable and capable little helicopter.

Here's a cool little item I just evaluated - essentially a programmable receiver mixer so you can control a model simultaneously with two transmitters. Tons 'o fun!

Had this for a couple of weeks so far. Flies great! Lots of power for easy hand launches, and fast, fast FAST!

Got this one for my son. Pretty nice for such a little heli! The fuselage is all plastic (not foam). Quite a bit of power and the charge lasts at least 10 minutes.

It doesn't seem to have a gyro, but it's fairly easy to control anyways. Nice trim for both yaw and pitch. Great fun for spot landings! Very crash-worthy, make sure you watch the crash footage at the end of the video!

Another cool toy - this one my F-22 Raptor. Doesn't like the grass much, but if the bounces time just right it will come off nicely. No shortage of power, just doesn't roll well on grass (typical of EDF models).

Fair amount of thrust - check out my tailslide-ish manouevre at about 4 minutes into the video. Yowza!

Lots of roll rate, but surprisingly easy to control without expo on the stock radio. Stable all around, slows down very nicely without any wing rock. There is a no shortage of wing area here!

Cool jet!
