I must say that SEFF 2011 was a great event and I had a BLAST.

It is probably one of the best run events in the country, everything went off without a hitch.

I myself only managed to take four planes down to SEFF, my 46" Vyper, 42" Slick, Extra 330 EPP Foamy and my night-flyer Cub.

I only flew my 42" and my 46" as it was very windy both days I was their, but I was still able to get many flights in. I hadn't flown my 42" in awhile but it still preformed great! I really like the way this little plane flew. After the three days I was there I managed to break the landing gear off both after some batteries dropped on me and the wind got me. Nothing that will take more than five minutes to fix.

I met some cool guys and really got to see some of the best pilots in the world fly.

I also flew a couple planes such as:

Mikes AKA Bivens 68" Nightflyer Velox
ctunders AKA Chris 89" AJ Slick electric
Horton AKA Noll Epp Extra at night

Thanks guys !

Towards the end of the event I did break a wheel on a landing and had to get a replacment. I gotta thank Ben at 3DHS for hooking me up and getting me back in the air !

Also towards the end of SEFF I talked to Ben at 3DHS ... I decided that I needed to take an 89" Slick of my own home and he gladly helped me out.

I am now the owner of a 50CC airplane. It should be a blast !

Hopefully the weather will calm down soon for some more flight video and also I should be able to start the finishing work on my 72" Extra.

That brings my current 3DHS fleet to 7 and the New Buck.5 will also be mine when it comes out.

I am one step closer to finally getting my 72" in the air !


My DLE-30 came from Tower Hobbys today! It looks like a sweet engine and it should be a great performer.

I decided to go gas after realizing buying batteries would be to expensive.

Its been very windy lately but I have managed to get some flying in.

Wamsy55 - Slick 42 - Sbach Foamy (10 min 56 sec)


Here is me flying my 42" Slick and Stormdriverone's cool little Sbach foamy.

I hadn't flown it in awhile ... but it stills flies great.

That same day I did manage to rip the landing gear out of my 51" Slick ... but hopefully I can fix it tomorrow before SEFF.

SEFF is a few days away and I can't wait ... I will have the camera rolling and hopefully meet some new guys and get some good flying in.

I will be their Thursday night through Saturday night !
