FLYING EXTREME ON A CHILLY DECEMBER EVENING 122813 (6 min 57 sec)


Here is a flight tonight from just before sundown. I'm gonna fire the camera dude but I can't cuz it's my Dad

Chilly but better than no flights for sure. A little shaky on the vid so sorry for that but it was cold and the plane was defintely not shaking. This Extreme Flight Extra 300 EXP is on rails all the time. It's a joy to fly it becuase it is so good at every phase of flying. Stalled, post stall, uplines, rolling, you name it... it does it well. This is the 70" Extra by the way.

Have fun indoors and out especially with the Twisted Hobbys Crack Turbo Beaver. This high wing 3D plane is agile, tough and a blast to fly. You can run floats, you can use flaps, spoilerons and other cool mix setups for added enjoyment. It'll put a BIG smile on your face.

This past weekend's indoor offered some fun flights and here is one of them on Twisted Hobby's Crack Mini Pitts. Working off of the funky pad things the gym has and trying to set up an obstacle to fly with. It was a fun afternoon.

Aaron got a chance on the sticks of the Spies by Fabien Thurpaud and Donatas Designs. Got this plane from Dave Lockhart back at WRAMS last year but didn't finish it by the time indoor ended and IMAC started etc... so now, finished it up and finally checking it out. Aaron's first F3P experience. It flies slow enough for being the cheapo GWS prop. We will try new CF props soon. Didnt use carbon tubes or any lightening techniques either. Just normal rods and a hacker with all but one servo connected with the regular wiring intact. Tried the magnet wire technique on one of them but it's not of much benefit unless you need to place a servo far away from the receiver. Plane came in at 110 grams with 2S 250 Mah battery on the plane. Here's Aaron flying it with no pattern in mind but just checking out the way it flies. Enjoy.

A local field around the Baltimore area known as SWAP has a fly in every year and they invited Aaron out to do a demo flight. So, Aaron flies the Extreme Flight 70" Extra 300 EXP. The plane tracks well and presents great. Aaron hits wing and elevator in harrier just after the 5 minute mark. Fun day and nice when it all comes back in one piece!

Great guy and love Chris' flying. The dirt at this field, and the fields around it, really is black. It is farm land but it's actually like floating on an underground lake. When someone walks by, you can feel the ground moving around you. You'd have to see it to believe it. Black Dirt 2013 and Chris on the 104 Slick. Good times. This is our end of IMAC season contest and the Freestyle is like a celebration. Watch Chris working out on this flight.

AARON EXTREME FLIGHT 70 EXTRA EXP 091513 (7 min 6 sec)


The prop is now an 18 x 10 APC Electric which is much faster and more fun. But, it cavitates and loses traction when loaded up and wide open which is a little scary, loud and not so nice. So, the quest continues. I think a stiffer 18 x 10 is the ticket. Anybody find a nice 18 x 10 carbon anywhere?
