Still need to get the graphics theK2 sent me installed on my new wings. New as in I have been flying the last 85 flights on the slightly beat up wings from my second Edge. About time I got the servos in the new ones. If I ever get the motor box job done in my second fuselage that will give me a complete spare aircraft.
Some pretty vicious storms ripped through here late yesterday evening. But after it passed I couldn't resist flying my little Slick out in front of my house. Had I not just recorded a video the other day I would've recorded this one because it was a pretty sweet backdrop! There were MAJOR lightning flashes going off in the distance throughout the whole flight. Pretty sweet!!
I also did a tail dunk in that large mud puddle... pretty cool but it got my heart racing!! The last thing I wanted to do was wade out into the thing to retrieve my plane!!
