Just today I stopped by the LHS and picked up this new plane on the way home. Weather was TERRIBLE, overcast, -3 C, trying to snow, quite windy, 15 - 30 km/hr, gusts, and turbulant on the street. Had to maiden it anyway.

The AS3X is SUPER effective, was actually FUN to fly, not terrifying, despite the fact that at 1/2 throttle is was actually going BACKWARDS at times! Managed to even do a vertical landing due to the heavy winds.

Can't wait to fly it in the calm and try some 3D flying.

This summer was a good one, I mentioned that didn't I! I also got a new heli for the fleet, the Blade 300X with BeastX technology. Serious helicopter, this is no COAX or mSR / mCPX! It flys big, sounds big, and I must admit was a bit intimidating at first.

I only have a hand full of flights on it, but it is VERY stable. I am already doing flips and short hovers. Here is a video of my first attempts to learn 3D on this heli.

Just a couple weeks ago I picked up the Parkzone UM Spitfire. It's a 1 cell, brushed motor micro, but with a twist ... it has built in AS3X stabilization technology. Flys amazing for a little 1 cell brushed, and sure does handle wind well. Lots of fun.

It's been a few months but this summer was a good one for me in terms of new planes. Here is a video of the maiden of my new Eflite UMX Mig 15 DF micro jet. This is my FIRST DF plane. VERY fun, very stable in the wind due to the built in AS3X technology. Remarkable little plane.
