Had to cycle my new 4s pack today and took the 3DHobbyShop 53'' Trainer with since im still setting up the extra shp for 4s. The extra will be even more fun with the torque 2814/820 motor and 4s,flew the 2818/900 in the trainer with a 12x6e.. Niceeeeee Vertical and acceleration . The Trex is good as new again and i painted some of the parts to match the canopy i had on the day it went in,upgraded to the new machined gearset to .

This plane flys so good and its so much fun. It was a nice day out and even the wind took a break a little . All was not well in the corn field though,along with the summer heat the summer BUGS or ''Terminators'' as i call them because they can be so unrelenting in there quest to make me crash planes and helis were out .. think im gonna get a bee keepers suit soon before i lose more of my birds. There not that bad but it does get rough trying to fly and swat bugs at the same time .

Had my first crash with the trex,been flying it off and on now almost a year probally. It was a nice day for flying and i havent been flying much so i was having fun when it went in . Funny thing is i just sprayed a new canopy for it and put the old tail fins back on to match new canopy .

The trex is always fun.. i just dont have time to fly helis very much . Thanks to ''Need2FindIt'' for providing the music in the video They ROCK ! . Planes and helis are fun but i began rc with offroad electrics and raced for several years. Theres a world class track with on and offroad racing thats been built recently and im looking forward to checking the track out in the upcoming weeks,might even try to start racing again as well.. well get whooped for a while until the reflexes and timing come back with the offroad cars .

I cant say enough about the extra shp or 3DHobbyShops excellent service. The extra is very well rounded.. its very stable and can fly high alpha like a foamy but also carrys speed well for precision moves to. Theres very few planes ive owned that i would buy again as a back up to the original.. recently while having a little to much fun and getting silly with mine i decided i couldnt do without a back up for this one.. yes it flys that well and fits in the trunk of my car so i needed a back up just incase .

Been a long time since i rode a bike.. Its been even longer than that when it comes to this kind of riding . Just like my flying the bike riding needs a lot of work. Its difficult to stay at a competitive level with any of my hobbies these days but it was nice to get on the bike and still have some skill.

Had some time today in the morning for some AP flights. Took my katana out with the onboard cam and got some nice pics. Lighting was kinda bad from the sun on some but most came out really nice .

I used my sony 3.2 digital camera for this video,it has audio from the truck and a music overlay mixed in. A little adjustment to the mounting is needed for the best perspective and view because the truck has a ton of suspension and the cameras view can change quite a bit do to the angles changing when the front suspension unloads during acceleration(it wants to yank the front wheels off the ground) .

Currently i have 4 planes in this size but only have power set ups and radio gear for two . Its tough when you have planes that fly excellent and look this nice to leave them collecting dust instead of flying . Hopefully i can get the yak back in the air soon .
