I noticed you didn't hit the Hummer or the Beamer, just the mailbox post. Great flying. Every time I try to fly one, on the computer, well there is lots of smoke and parts fly every where.

Great Job Damon.

For some reason that mail box is like a magnet....

LOL.....

I am really love this heli thing, talking about making you a better fix-wing pilot. If you can't use your left thumb, then you ain't flying a heli.....

Rock ON!!!!

It is way over powered and will flutter the wings going vertical. Has been crashed into trees about 15 times, but has never been crashed into the ground.

I like to show off home I can fly 360's around trees, but for some reason sometimes it does not emerge from the backside.....

Wicked sense of humour.

I have to tell a very cool story.

Last month I had to get my Emmaselle re-waviered as it is over 55 pounds and each year I need to do so.

A good pal of mine is Ron Ballard, a great guy and also is the guy who sells all the wern jet engines.

each year Ron had helped me get the wavier done as he is a CD and under LMA-1 All I needed was 2 witnesses, one being a CD, and the other me??? Or so I thought.

AMA
RADIO CONTROL
LARGE MODEL
AIRPLANE PROGRAM
Rules:
Two demonstration flights observed by the owner and either an AMA Contest
Director (CD), Leader Member (LM) or LMAI are required. A list of current
LMAI is available on the AMA Web site under the Member Only Documents
section.
i. In the event that the owner is also the pilot, then the two demonstration
flights will be observed by two CDs, LMs, or a combination thereof. If the
observer is a LMAI, a second witness is not required.

See if I am the pilot I cannot be the second witness.

When my paperwork got to the AMA a great lady (ILona Maine) saw that my paper work was not correct. She e-mailed me but the e-mail the AMA had for me was old and outdated. So she took the time to go to my website and find my good e-mail and pointed out to me my paperwork needed to be updated.

What is very cool is I had just been at a event that Ron Ballard and many CD's had saw my Emmaselle fly many times that day, so getting Ron's and another CD's signatures was a breeze.

The AMA rocks, and it was great they took the time to let me know I needed to get my paperwork fixed, and I am clear to fly...

Just wanted to share this.....

Fantastic, but at that point I'd figure it's not too much more effort to build a 100% and fly it.

This one flies really great though.

Problem with 100% planes is that you need that pesky private pilots license, and pesky medical rating, and pesky $5.00 a gallon avgas and pesky $100/hr or so for training.
