After running into many problems with the build of the RC Universe bipe, i just needed something to fly. Iv'e been meaning to move on from ultra micros and i made that decision by picking up this amazing piece of R/C model! I really can't say anything bad about this plane. It is just perfect! really is helping me back into flying on the daily if the weather permits
I am seriously considering selling most of my micros for another Parkzone parkflyer!
Fast shipping in only a week and now i can start building! Will post a pic of it when im done building it!
EDIT - I have ran into many problems and finally broke all z-bends included and i don't feel super inspired to order another set for the z-bends. also no-one is raving about the 3D capabilities of this plane, so it's on hold.
I Finally got some lipos after saving up. I picked these up at the track, charged them, and ran them there and the performance can not even be compared to nicads. i used to have to swing wide on some turns to get enough speed to make the jump around the corner but no longer! These babies just launch like a rocket with blistering acceleration! Ones almost done charging so im gonna go do some speed runs on pavement
Iv'e been making friends and posting more on this website so i'm just gonna put up my R/C experience up to date!
Way back my dad got a foam 3ch trainer because he used to fly nitro balsa 3 channel planes before I was born. I watched him fly it over and over again and was fascinated and wanted to give it a try but didn't want to crash his plane.
For my next birthday he got me some old version of Realflight simulator. I practiced for countless hours and was just looking into a cheap trainer when my dad got a BNF ultramicro Parkzone P-51 and a DX6i. This was going to be my dad's first 4 channel with no simulator training at all (bad mistake). After crashing it many times and denting up the body while he was learning I asked "Can i try?" so he jammed the controller in my hands and was ready to hand launch it for me. Luckily it was a super calm day so it was exactly like the simulator and i flew it perfectly until the battery ran out even with some lame 3d maneuvers. My dad said i had a gift that i got from him ahahaha sure dad
That was when i got bitten by the bug haha. I started selling old random toys on ebay and to my friends to buy more parkzone micros. I got an original sukhoi, a cessna 210 centurion, a 4 site, a slow stick, a cap 580 foamy, and a couple others. The only problem was i needed to have my dad or someone drive me to the field and that got old eventually so i recently turned to cars to feed my addiction.
I now own a Slayer Pro 4x4 and a 2wd Slash VXL. I will take some pics of my planes if someone requests but im going to edit in some pics of my cars soon
