Slope Soaring today with my 2 meter glider, and my prop got stuck in my canopy on a start up and I ended up in a tree.
I got lucky and had zero damage.

For gods sake don't do anything stupid with your machines. Keep everything out of the NEWS right now, it is vital to our hobby to fly with the upmost respect around the public. It seemes to me they are looking for a reason any reason to shut this whole thing down. Untill it simmers down "lay low" and let thing settel down a bit. We dont need any hot dogers or show off's right now. Try to teach folks around you that it is not a invasion to them, but a step in technoligy to better them. I'm just saying...

I just saw on CNN that the feds are now outlawing the use of "Drones" in all national parks in the USA. What next.

I wanted to fly my mini quad at night, so I built a lite kit that velcro's to the underside of the quad. It is fully self contained with it's own batt. pack and has bright green solid lit for the front of it. The rest of them blink red and blue, so it is very easy to fly it at night. I made it from two old mini heli's I had laying around. What I did was rob the whole board and then sodered the 4 lites that go out to the arms. It turned out really nice and is just what I was looking for. I will try to post a video of it in flight later.

Hi guys, I recived a gift from one of my customers the other day and wanted to post it.
It's a AMF Wen Mac teather car from the 1960's It's powered by a rare Thunderbolt .049 (still in the bag). it's brand new in the box with all hardware and decals. I did some research but was not able to find much on it.
Anyways just thought it would be fun to post.
