Hi everyone,

I'm on the 2014 F5B Electric Glider team, and I will be attending the World Championship in Austria as a Junior.

I'm raising money for my trip, so I'll be selling one of my RW4.

It's 5S set-up Neu Motor 1512, with Castle Creation 200, good condition, awesome to fly, with R617FS Futaba receiver, ready to FLY.

What am asking for is $1650.00 all in.

Please check out the Video and pictures.

I'm located in Glendale, CA, but I can ship.

If you have any question please send e mail to eliasamatar@gmail.com

Thanks

Another amazing F5B practice with Steve Neu, Eric Wierman and Lenny Keer from the US national team.

It was an Avionik/RW4 show, Steve, Eric, Lenny and I flew the Avionik B10 and B12, and I also flew my B01 and got 42 laps, my best so far, I just need to practice more.

My dad Elias got 36 laps on his B05 with a 5S set up, I think he could have gotten 38.

Dad and I flew the RW4 and it was awesome.

Thank you again Steve Neu for making this happen!!!

It was another awesome practice with Steve Neu, Eric Wierman and Lenny Keer.

My dad even got into it, he did 29 laps on the course with his Avionik B05 4S 5000, and I did 41 laps on Steve's Avionik B10 10S set up.

My RW4B 5S 3700 with my new GM 18/23 Prop was little too powerful, one of the aileron came off mid flight. I managed to land OK with the help of Eric, and we even found the missing aileron.

On Apr 21 there was an F5B practice, I went down with my dad. I got to fly with Steve Neu, how helped me since I have not flown my RW4 for few months.

It was awesome to get into it again, I even got my dad to fly one of Steve's light set ups. My dad end up buying an old Anionik 06 V-tail.

There is another practice on May 18-19, come down a join us, it is going to be AWESOMENESS!!!!

Happy New Year
I caught a flu on New Year's day and I was literally in bed for 3 days. I have chills , fever and chills again. Fever, rashes , stomach upsets and needless to say, I have not been flying. Well the Rose Bowl was fenced off for the first few days anyways because of the Rose Parade and there is not enough space to fly my planes. So I went with my friend Patrick and flew our Nano CPX, it was a lot of fun as you can see in the video.

I am so excited , I will be going to the AMA Show in Anaheim this weekend. I will post all the new and exciting things I find there.

I took my first flight Saturday at the Whiteman Airport in Van Nuys ,CA with the Young Eagles on Saturday.

The Young Eagles program was launched in 1992 by EAA the Experimental Aircraft Association, based in Oshkosh Wisconsin. Their mission is to provide a meaningful flight experience free of charge in a general aviation aircraft for young people between the ages of 8 and 17.

You can look up more information about the organization : http://www.youngeagles.com/


Here is the website of the Van Nuys chapter http://eaa40.org/eaa-chapter-40-young-eagle-events/


Well as for my experience with this flight, it was great. Stacy, my flight instructor even let me control the plane in the air. We flew from Van Nuys all the way to Magic mountain and back. The whole flight was around 25 minutes. I think it is a little bit easier to fly a real plane than a RC plane but I think the talking to the air tower might take some time to get used to. I really love this experience and everybody was very nice and I recommend this to anyone, well if you are 8-17.

My goal is to work towards getting a pilot license maybe before my driver license.

It was raining yesterday so I couldn't go out flying. Getting a bit restless, I decided to make something......I used the protective cover of the canopy, soldered it together, spray fainted it from the inside and created a brand new fun jack-o-lantern canopy. It was a fun project on rainy day.

Thank you for watching my video and visit my blog www.Gabrieltheflyingtiger.com

Today I flew my RW4 at the Rose Bowl. It was a calm day. I do not think I did such a great job launching it. But I did have fun flying it once it took off and the landing was actually smooth.

Robin's flying field (2 min 10 sec)

Posted by Ghog | Dec 12, 2012 @ 11:31 AM | 2,342 Views
Last weekend we were invited to Robin's field annual Christmas party. We recieved our official Port-A-Potti pilots pin. There were around 30-40 people , all Robin and Robin senior's friends and flyers at the field. The food was good. Robin's hanger is filled with planes..Cubs, Bandits, Half scale, Gas motor, one has a 90cc motor that I can fit in ... of course, he owns a hobby shop !!

We are working on improving Robin's field so maybe we can fly our F5B there......

If you are a flyer and AMA member in San Fernando Valley looking for a flying field. Call Robin at Robins Hobby 818-240-2093 or visit his website www.Robinshobby.com Maybe I will see you on the field !

I try to fly my Stratair RW4 at least 3 times a week and whenever my mentor Eric Wierman has time, he will come and join me. He was prepping his Avionics for flight yesterday. The wind condition was good, I manage to get 3 flights in. I am getting much more comfortable launching my RW4.

This is a very powerful plane and it takes a lot of preparation and concentration to launch this one. My mentor Eric worked with me for almost 4 months before I could have the courage to launch it by myself. I it a lot of fun and it gets my adrenaline pumping
