Can't help but share this video for sentimental and patriotic reasons!
Well... maiden... so, be happy for us, very sweet! Terrible video, let that be said. And it's a long video to boot. But, this is yet yet the first flight on the AW. So, we had to record something. Aaron flew it again this night and did even better with taking off and landing himself. We are soo thankful to Alex for help with the setup and all the radio help! Thanks bro!
And, we have a many years of flying this one coming up. Looks like it's on rails and a great IMAC plane. COOL!!! The vids that should follow will be awesome. Aaron is ten (and flying a 60CC right now)!!!!
Just checking out the new indoor plane this past weekend. It's very nice and light. Good kit. Put some brakes and SFGs on it for fun. Might go bigger on both next weekend. Check it out.
Someone mentioned don't tip stall so Aaron flies this glow plane like he stole it LOL. This is about his 4th flight on this plane that Tom Moyer gave him (THANKS TOM). It's a Seafgull Harrier with a sweet running OS .46 glow motor. After indoor we hit the field Sunday and I got this vid. Hard to keep the camera on the planes these days the way Aaron's been flying... rollers every which way LOL...
Well, Aaron is flying every day and this is a crazy flight. I couldn't keep up with the camera lol. Sorry about that but the rollers are nice. Had the cam set on HD video, curious to see what it looks like on YOutube and on here/RCGroups but it looked a little jumpy on the PC from the get go. I think the HD quality compromises the frame rate... not sure...
Here is the maiden on the Dynex from DynamicFoamy.com. It was a quick build and didn't even check out the directions. For those of you that build faomies it's a no brainer that puts out a nice result. There are quite a few things that can be don to play with the way it flies. You see that we tried some SFGs and some brakes. A lot of fun. Flies a little slower with these brakes but might go bigger. Upline was fine. Hovering and torque rolling no problem. We're working on the precision aerobatics. The electronics are quite possibly where we could get some serious improvements but this is waht the standard linear servos are doing right now in terms of throw and servo speed. Hope you enjoy. We hav some more video to post. Flew a bunch of planes this weekend... great time...
Just got a few planes from Burt and we are very pleased. The ultra light indoor stuff is pretty quick to build and a little more friendly in the gym than when we fly the bigger planes and shred up all the circle flyers flying their vapors and embers around (LOL). The DF planes look good and we've bben flying them on leftovers out of old PZ stuff. We are looking at some different setup options as well. Any questions or comments, let us know. We're looking to maiden the AW Extra this weekend and fly glow and the 3dHS planes as well since the weekend is supposed to be looking good from this distance.
Hope to see you all at the Nall!
We got out and put the Yak up once the wind died down a little. It was blowing all day. So, I guess Aaron is still getting used to this one. He flew three batteries but this was the first. It looks like it is going to be a nice plane for him to practice on. We may program some mixes in on the radio but not sure it really needs much. Let us know what you think.
Not sure about total darkness but might be cool in a dusk type situation. Got to thinkin' and threw some LEDs in the Yak
She's about ready. All pretty and needs to get out. Little blast of windy cold weather kept her down this weekend so we flew the beater (48" DW) outdoor a couple times Sat eve. We still hit indoor Sunday but, since we were getting the WRAMS video off of Toms video camera, we didn't have enough memory to put all the video onto the thumb drive. But, at least we have it in case we get bored..... NEVER....
Great to see some indoor precision flight and to learn about the planes being used. If you wanna lose weight, the F3P scene is where you get advice from... Riley flies very well. It was great to talk with his Dad and hear about his flying. Very talented pilot!
Tyler stopped in and showed that he is flying real well all year round. Haven't seen these guys since last year at an IMAC contest here in Baltimore. He talked to Aaron then and for Aaron is a pilot to look up to in the sport. His plane inspired Aaron to get our AW Extra. We are meeting a lot of very helpful people and learning a lot the whole way. Thanks to everyone that's keeping in touch. Anyone will tell you that you have got to get out and fly with others in order to learn. We're lucky to have you all!
Did some flying, did some shopping, bought a plane and met a lotta nice people. It was a success. The Super8 wasn't so great though
Yeah Tom, way to go!!!
Flew a couple days indoors in NJ with some real nice folk. We'll see you all again soon. This one goes out to Cody. Some nice flying right here...
