I got a couple A-10 Warthog sorties in this past weekend before it got cold again. What a great flying A-10.

My son's first flight with his Apprentice S 15e RTF with SAFE Technology. He's been practicing on my RealFlight simulator and can stay in the air using just rudder and elevator and throttle management on the Hobbico NexStar EP plane on RF, but hasn't learned to land yet or maintain a constant flight routine in the pattern, but he has fun and I don't want to discourage him. The Apprentice has three settings for training on. The first setting is for his experience in that it doesn't allow wild movements with stick movement and maintains a nice stable level flight. The SAFE system doesn't allow for much rudder movement, so I told him to use the aileron stick like he was using the rudder stick and it worked out great. The SAFE system automatically gives elevator input when the ailerons are used and my son was able to make nice slow turns with the ailerons. I really like the SAFE system to start him off on, because it allows me to relax while he flies and he becomes more relaxed in flying a real plane instead of a simulator. He likes to do loops and rolls and the SAFE system doesn't allow this on the first two settings so I take the plane up several mistake high and let him go to town on loops and rolls. When my nerves have had enough I can flip the switch back to one and he can fly on his own and I can calm my nerves.

The maiden of my 3DHS 70" Slick went great. The only issue is the Hacker motor was squealing at low throttle. I need to change the settings on the Castle ICE 100 and that should get rid of the squeal. The Hacker A60-6XS is a very strong motor on 6S and pulls the Slick around with incredible authority.

Equipment:
Hacker A60-6XS
Castle ICE 100
Xoar 19x10 Prop
Castle BEC Pro
Spektrum DX8
Spektrum AR8000
Hitec HS-7955TG

It was a beautiful day and the sun was going down. Just enough time to get a quick launch in of my son's first rocket, an Estes Maxi Alpha III rocket firing a D motor.

Got a GoPro Hero for a good price so this is my first attempt at using it as a head cam. Didn't realize the memory card was almost full so it cuts out in the middle of the flight.

I bought this E-flite Deuces Wild 25e2 ARF on ebay about a year ago. It was sold by Hobb-e-mart, an online store that sells damaged and returned items from Horizon Hobby.

Had a great time this weekend float flying in Paola, Ks hosted by RC Barnstormers of Hillsdale, KS. I only lost one plane (E-Flite Ultra Stick 25e) due to a bad Rx, otherwise it was a perfect day of float flying. Thanks to Nathan and Carl for being my spotters. Will definitely be back next year.

Getting ready for a float fly and thought the 3DHS 51" Slick would look awesome with floats. This is the second 3DHS plane I've mounted on floats. The 47" SHP is my goto float plane right now. If the Slick performs as well as I think it will, I'll have two great float planes.

Bought this 300SR a long time ago as a replacement for whenever my SHP went to Balsa Heaven. Well that day never came and my SHP is still going strong after 100+ flights and is now my goto float plane now. I missed flying my SHP so I decided it was time to put the 300SR in the rotation. Just have to wait for non-Gale force wind day to maiden her.

Cool Video.

Just goes to show that with enough power, the right CG, and enough skill one can 3D almost anything...

Was a great day Saturday, so I took advantage of it and flew my three current favorite planes.

One of the local clubs put on a float fly this past Saturday. Everyone must have saw the forecast of ran, because the 4 people that put it on and myself, are the only people who showed up to fly. I think we had more spectators then flyers. Oh well, itís a nice place to fly and I didnít pretty much had the whole sky and dock to myself.

I took my trusty Electrifly Seawind EP. Itís always a blast to fly and fun to try different things with. This was the maiden flight of my new E-Flite 25e Pulse on floats. Itís a good sport plane to fly off the water. I only flew it a few times, because this was also the maiden flight of my 3DHS Extra SHP 47Ē on floats.

I had some really light 10 oz foam floats lying around, so I attached them to some E-Flite Stick 25e landing gear and mounted it the SHP. I put three coats of mini-wax to seal the foam and then three coats of Krylon H2O water based spray paint. They turned out really light at only 14 ozs. The SHP was a blast to fly off water. The take off runs were really short and the floats affected the flight a little, but I was able to do all the maneuvers I know with no problems. I flew the SHP the most, putting about 12 flights on it.

The forecasted rain finally came around 1 PM, so I packed everything up and headed home. I love to go float flying.

No flying today, but a lot of fun hanging out with the family at the zoo.
