Here is our Weekly Foambusters Video

You get to see a ton of photos from the flying field ( Peelers Park ) and even a little video of me flying the Yak 54 ...

Frank does a great job putting these weekly videos together.

I had a good day flying today ... I had over 10 flights with the Slick and four with the Yak 54.

I would have flown it more but the wind required landing from the right side of the field which I was extremely uncomfortable doing .....

I did it once but I just want to keep it simple until I get used to the plane.

I even got some video of me flying ....

Slickness (6 min 0 sec)


I brought out my Dads good camera and he took some really good photos and I did to. I got some really good ones of my friends Parkzone T-28.

I got a little to low with my Slick and put it into the ground no damage and it made a good picture. I really am doing good with the Slick ... now I really want a new 3DHS airframe to play with ... a 48 VR-1 or a 46 Vyper .... or both ...

Christmas is coming soon ... which means I will try to get one ...

Enjoy ...Continue Reading

I had a pretty good RC Weekend ...

Saturday I got in 6 flights with my Extreme Flight Yak 54 , and about 7 flights with my 3D Hobby Shop 42" Slick ......


Sunday was not supposed to be the best day for RC flying due to the wind .... .... but for a couple hours it was almost perfectly calm ....

It was better than expected ....

I got in three flights with my Yak 54 and 7 flights with my 42" Slick ...

Jim , our local RC camera man , got some great pictures ...

I have been working on many different 3D moves over the past couple of weeks .....

Torque Rolls
Rolling Loops
Rolling Circles ... While rolling to the left instead of right

I am getting into the more difficult stuff and its a blast .....

The Yak is taking some getting used to ... it does maneuvers much differently than my Slick .... but it is nice to have the best of both gas and electrics at my disposal ....

No school wendesday .... or the rest of the week but the weather doesn't look great for RC flying until the weekend so

An aileron servo stripped on the third flight ... ...

I also got some Nightflying in with my Super Cub ....

I had a good day of RC Flying ... rdbell came out and flew with us ....

He even attacked the windsock with his flying wind and hit it twice ! It was cool .... His Quadcopter was pretty cool too ....

Well after many hours of work the Yak flies ....

Me and a couple great guys from the field ... Bruce , Chris , and Steve worked on it for a long time Saturday and got it into the air Sunday ...

It doesn't fly like the Slick at all ... but I love it and can't wait to get it into the air some more ...

The Slick had a rough day ....

I put it in pretty hard after loosing orientation while practicing rolling loops .... it didn't seem like their was to much damage .... other than some scratches ...

I changed the prop and put it up again .... and while doing a knife edge spin the prop flew off and I was force to do a landing .... but it happened very fast and I flared to early which broke both gears .... and I later discovered the motor box was pretty messed up ...


I could fix it with CA ... but for 10 bucks a new motor box seems like a better option ......Continue Reading

Well ... I have gone to the dark side ... I am going to be getting my first gasser.

Its an Extreme Flight Yak 54 ... its an awesome looking plane ...

Sunday I got some good flying in ... I mostly flew the Slick until the rudder servo mount gave out.

I got some really good photos of it ( Thanks Jim ) and I am getting much more comfortable ....

The big thing that happened was a turbine crashed ... it was really bad ... their was nothing left ....

Unfortunately the time is about to change which will make flying after school impossible ...

Enjoy the pics ....
