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) .

Well as usual even though it was a very warm sunny day the famous winds from the city made it out to where i fly . Did some onboard video flying with the Katana.. 20-25mph winds and turbulant so i just flew.. no 3D or anything low .

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 .

This is one of my funniest videos with the typhoon.. High winds and i just kept beating on the plane even after it made contact with the ground and other obstacles . Its a older low qaulity video from earlier this year and i used software instead of camera settings to give it the widescreen effect to demostrate the editing software.

Had a lot of fun with the katana today .. and a scrape with terra firma,Asphalt and a curb to be exact . Weather was fairly pleasant,wasnt to cold maybe 35 degrees,clear sky and mild winds of about 10 mph. Ofcourse this is very good flying weather out here lately so ofcourse i had to work on some stuff... inverted harriers,Lower.. Lower.. ok a foot over the street right by a curb isnt such a good idea and after a few passes i screwed up. I had been doing them about 3 to 6 foot up with little correction needed but on second pack 3 to 6 foot wasnt cutting it for me . Damage is repairable and minor considering i was at full throttle trying to recover before the nose came down at about 5 mph airspeed. Unfortunately i didnt have a camera person with so it wasnt in the frame of video at time it hit . On the bright side there was no damage to the motor or shaft . Tore up the spinner and prop though .

The weather out here has took a turn for the worst... AGAIN i was up yesterday morning and decided id try and get some outdoor testing in as well as a maiden in on one of my new planes. I nearly lost one of my favorite planes do to weather and pilot error.. missed something during ground check and it made for some extremly difficult flying but i got the plane down safely without a scratch . Heres some stuff ive been working on .
