Go Boise State, I simply enjoy watching them play. I have no interest in the ranking or a National Championship. My next wing will be Univ of Oregon.

The sun and disorientation were contributing factors in this unplanned landing, no damage aside from a loose servo, 30 second repair ready to go.

Due to a bad battery or Rx this final flight looked like the last one ten years ago.
This time its Final no rebuild just the trash.

I built it and checked it, the reverse servo issue would have killed any other plan but not this one it is bullit proof. Not ever using a Prop saver I was sure I bent the Shaft but I didn't The vibrations caused every screw in the plane to com loose. I put lock tight on 90% should have let it dry After I gt her up I realized it needed more reflex and up throw so Back to the hangar and melted two holes farther out on the control horns of the servos. Loved it and with the propsaver carving a new hole in the prop I put a new prop on and all is good will toss her again later

My Assassin was almost to much to hold onto, she is throwing so much thrust.
I think she could fly if she was square
