Weathers getting a lot nicer but still a little breezy for small planes. Was nice to get some air with the cars. Flew a couple planes with the hobbypartz blue lipos.. they rock and the prices are awesome,got a new charger to from them. Lipos were packaged VERY well and i'll be ordering more from hobbypartz.com soon. Got the thunder ac6 charger and some 2s 500mah 20c and some 3s 1000mah 20c packs for the rainbow and piaget,tryed the 2s 500 packs in the electrifly 330sc in the yard.. lotts more power than the 2s 430's i was running before and a quarter of the price . At 6.6oz auw using the 500mah blue lipos the plane got knocked around a lot in the yard with the wind but was fun to get some yard flying in.

Made some revisions to it,will probally add a little more to the looks then pull the gear for some other stuff. Maiden flight with revisons,flew at the crack of dawn so the wind was pretty calm.

Flys nice,lightest plane ive ever flown but will probally only be flown outdoors. Was well within the spec weight even with heavier than suggested gear but i have some different power set ups to try as well that should make it about 6oz or less. Really like the futaba 3114 servo for planes like this,might get a couple more for other projects.

Went bashing with the slash 4x4 and ran a 2wd slash with a 4600kv brushless system. Its gonna be a lot of fun on the big bmx jumps at another bash spot .

Took it to a park to get a flight in with it,flys really nice but i'll be binding it to the dx7 for more aggressive moves. Watch for the chunk of mud flying on impact .

Been thinking about trying jets for quite a while,been interested in a few.. the parkzone habu would be simple and fun,been looking at the hobby-lobby eurofighter.. its bigger and it has all the bells and whistles already installed like bump absorbing style retracts and nav lights.. would make for a cool camera plane as well. Way back i was looking at the flyfly hobby jets to.. especially the big bae hawk and the mb 339,heres a couple vids i really like from flyflyhobbys youtube page .

Now this one looks like fun!

The hawk would rock with nav lights and a onboard camera as well.

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.
