Great morning of flying with the Easy Star
I just got back from the local school with my Easy Star. It is a stock, RTF with a brushed motor and the HiTec Neon-SS TX.
There's something to be said about flying early in the morning. This is the 2nd time I've been there at 6AM. No wind and no people! I video taped the first flight and got some great video of the schools, football stadium, etc. With the 2nd battery and no camera I did more aerobatics (as much as you can do with the stock ES).
I just enjoyed some nice, relaxed flying. After a year of flying (almost to the date) I'm very happy with this plane and I'd recommend it to anyone.
That said, I have a kit on my building board which I'm hoping to cover in the next few days (Pat Tritle's Eugly Stick). I have a Hacker A20S and a ThunderBird 18 ready to go in it. My next project will be a SIG LT-40 kit that I'll probably start in the fall to have ready for next year. Yep, you heard it right. I'm going wet as well!
