I just finished the new Foamie ...

I had actually had it finished a few nights ago .. but I finally got it dailed in pretty good.

I just need to move the CG back a little more ..

It flies great ... I even got a little video of it today !

330 Video.wmv (6 min 24 sec)



After that flight and another I totally wrecked my 42" Slick ....

I came in for a low harrier ... and when I went to pull out vertically .... I nosed it in really bad.

My fault .... My fingers where a little to cold to be flying that low , and I didn't realize that I was still pulling on the stick ....

But due to the awesomeness of this little plane ... and I already glued the new one in. It was super easy to replace , I ordered a motor box a couple weeks ago just to have in case of a crash so I was prepaired for this one.

All I need is a new cowling and a couple peices of covering to patch up two little rips.

We finally got some good weather for flying .....

I only flew the Slick 42" .... I got about 10 flights on it ..... pure fun.

I took the T-28 out to the field .... but it never got out of the car.

I did maiden a cool plane called a Multiplex Parkmaster ... which was awesome ... but unfortunately it had a midair later that day.

One of the wheels randomly broke after a harrier landing .... so some CA fixed that and I was off and flying again .... I already ordered some new wheels and some other things for a couple new projects ...

I have a 3DHS 46" Vyper that I am building ..... I am almost done with the airframe. I just need the servos and ESC and I am ready to finish it.

My setup:

Omega 130g Motor
Castle ESC 60 Amp (Probably)
Hs-65MG Servos All Around
3DHS Long Throw Servo Arms
3 Cell 2200 mah Batteries .....

It should be really fun .... I can't wait to fly it.

Tomorrow my 3DHS Extra 330 Foamie should arrive ....

I already have the parts ready so I just need to get the airframe.

I watched the build videos already ... before I was a little worried because I have never built an EPP Kit like this before ... but the build videos have me feeling confident ....

Next project after that is a 3DHS 51" Slick

I got some good pictures of my Slick Sunday .... still my favorite plane ...

I need to get some flights on the Yak ... but its just a little to cold .....


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to All !

Yup ... it was snowing when I got to the field Sunday morning ...

I slept in expecting the wind to pick up ... but I couldn't resist at least trying to fly.

It was very cold and their was a good wind ...

I tried one 3D flight and ... my fingers where way to cold to try anything crazy .

I pulled out the trusty T-28 and battled the wind and snow ... and tried some bush landings ....

Yes .... I did land in the pits .... Sue me ...
