Well I pulled the triger and ordered a X650 with the new kk2.1 board. I can't wait to get it and start building. I went with this frame because it will hold all video and FPV gear on board as well as gps. The frame folds for easy transport, and I think it looks cool as well. Here is a pic of what I want when I'm done.

I picked this plane up last summer at a fly-in and had a buddy of mine build it, as he was looking for a project. I flew it yesterday and it did great, just like it's on rails I have it set up fast so it flys like a patteren plane. since I had the "Ducks" plane I had to sticker it as a "Beavers" plane. I fly it on a 1500 3c witha a 2200kv and 8" prop.

Well it was only a matter of time. I recived my first Quad for Christmas. It's small, but very able to do some of the stuff I want to do. This bird came with a mini e-flight cam that you can turn on and off with the radio. I have never flown one before, so I took it solw and easy for the first few flights. I got to say it did great. After a few batt's and some time on the sticks, I loaded the cam on it and put it in the air outside. My first video was upside down (straped cam in upside down). The second flight turned out good. I got some great footage of my neiborhood from the air. I plan on useing the quad at the flight events that I will attened this next year, Also it will be good to take it to some indoor sessions.
The cool thing about this quad is it has 3 flying modes 0,1,2 in the first mode almost anyone could fly her. It has self stablizing, but after I get to know her I can switch to areobatic mode. It is able to flip and roll. we'll see as time goes on. All I can say for now is I think it is a great entry level quad, and is a lot of fun to fly.

So I was cleaning the shop and found this 40" fomie in a box of templates and dug up some gear and put this thing together. I ended up putting a 2200kv motor I had from a jet build and threw a 9x4 on it, loaded a 3cell 1000 and off it went...WOW what a rocket ship... this thing rocks on speed and handles like it's on rails. It will hang on the prop but it doesn't like it too well, but the knife edge is awsome. I can't wait to show it off at the field.

This is the airplane I almost bought from Michael Holman. Man I wished I pulled the triger on this one. Oh well. I ended up with the Yak instead. I still think I'll be happy with my decision.

A Buddy of mine gave me this Edge 540 and I am trying to find out what kit this is. If anyone knows what this is I would love to know. It has a mark inside the fuse that looks like a fancy "G" stamped in it.

So with another season in the books (almost) it's time to start thinking about some building. This winter I am steeping up a bit and plan on building a couple 1/4 scales and a couple 1.20 size planes. (Extra's Edge's and Yack's oh my...)

I have been busy cleaning the hanger in preperation of winter. I'm down to one table of parts.

Bring on the rain I don't care it's time to build. As far as flying I will still catch some flights on nice days.

I was just wondering if anyone out there is like me, This hobby seemes to be more of an addiction to me, than a hobby. I eat, sleep, and think about aircraft all the time. I fly most every day, as well as work in the shop most every morning. I can't even remember what it was like before this all started. So my question is: Is this a Hobby or an Addiction.
