I seen a blackhawk do this once in a video... didnt work out quite as well. Some wild flying but i doubt id try it with a fullscale heli.. maybe trimming weeds but not tree tops.

Remember when you were a young child.. you probally questioned everything. As an adult we have a greater understanding of how things work and we rarely ask WHY anymore,why? but why? why is that? how come? why?

The internet.. we have more ways to communicate and ask questions than ever.

Just something to think about if you have questions in the forums. I have some questions about the industry as a whole as well as marketing.

Back to the forums and listening to tunes.. I like a lot of different music... been listening to these dudes lately. Lots of my favorite music is 70s stuff.

Went to e-fest today,didnt notice much new. Seen the e-flite blade sr.. pretty cool,might get one of those for the yard. The spectator walkway was packed with people and some vendors and looked like a really good turn out this year.

Art-tech manufactures a lot of rtf planes and helis.. heres a look at there factory. Would be cool to see more videos like these. Ive seen smaller factory videos of some really nice composite jets as well. Many probally have seen aligns factory video as well as extreme flights and others. Would be cool to visit sometime and take a tour of all of them one day.

Theres so much talent on youtube,people share the hobby,sports,music and all kinds of helpful videos for learning arts,crafts,building stuff.. you name it theres a video on youtube to teach others. When it comes to music.. if you were to compare instruments to rc flying the drums would be like flying helis.. this chick rocks.

Went to the track to beat the cold winter weather and snow. The truck is durable and it took some hard hits during the couple of quick runs i had time for. A few other guys showed up with the rtr versions to so soon there should be a class at the local track filled with the new slash 4x4s.

Looking forward to a slash 4x4 class soon. Cant beat these trucks for fun,low cost racing and there fun to watch go around a track to. Id really like to see a larger slash one day with 1/8 scale electric power and based off current truggy class dimensions with a larger body.. A super slash. Until then im just waiting for the slash 4x4 platinum edition to make it to the hobby shops.

Did some grillin and decided to get a quick flight in while the food was cooking. Numb thumbs but got to do some kind of flying until spring gets here. Really thinking about a mini heli for the yard,been looking at the e-flite bnf cx3 and it should be able to haul a 1oz cam around to for some ap and video,ive had a light kit for probally over a year that would really jazz it up to from a big heli scale fuselage that was wrecked that someone gave me, just need to shorten the wires for the lights. I could always cut some foam and make another hover craft type deal.. been wanting to do that for a while with some of the plane gear i have sitting around collecting dust and the lights would jazz that up to.

With winter here in the midwest unless your part polar bear there isnt to much flying going on. Grillin slows down quite a bit as well but i'll get some flying in and some grillin during the winter. Theres some projects to get finished,need to chop some wood to keep a nice warm fire going while in the yard with the grill in freezing temps,foam to be cut for planes as well. The gas grill needs some work,with the poor flying weather it opens up a lot of time for doing other things like more cooking. Something ive been working on lately is a really good pizza for under $4.00.. a deep dish pizza on top of that no less! Just about everybody likes pizza.. originally pizza was a crust with leftovers thrown on top for toppings,its much more modernized now with the stables being crust,cheese and sauce. Theirs all kinds of twists,styles and ingredients not to mention the way its cooked now. As much as i like the napoli style of pizza.. deep dish pizza rocks to. Plenty of other favorites to cook and new styles and recipes as well. Already getting hungry for some bbq... have to pick up plenty of charcoal to keep the grill going this winter.

Ive thought about this for some time,today while checking out storm chasers on the discovery channel on youtube it looks like someones finally trying it. I enjoy the shows but thought the deploying of the probes was just to random. Im sure many will see the cons of using an rc plane to get footage as well as the risks but the chances of success will be much higher if they can enter the tornado rather than hope it goes in the right path and data and video are logged on a ground probe. Looking forward to seeing more on this one.

Heres some of the footage i found so far on this project.

Foam is fun,less expensive,easier to scratch build with than balsa,can fly foamies just about anywhere. For a long time i thought of foamies as a crutch and concentrated on flying balsa almost exclusively. The goal was to eventually buy a 50cc size plane.. thats where balsa really starts to fly like foamies when it comes to the floaty parts of flying,but then your making a big commitment for just one big plane and also the transportation thing and how often will you actually get to fly it.. just stepping up to 55'' size electrics can get a bit pricey these days. For now im sticking to the foamies and i'll probally come up with more scratchbuilt stuff this winter to fly around with until spring.

Weather has been rain and really windy all week. Got this plane monday,finally the weekend and time to get the maiden flight in... windy as usual. Got one flight in,13 oz plane and wind gusting over 20mph at times made it difficult to really feel it out but it flew nice and should be a lot more fun on a calmer day.
