Re: See a BIG fixed wing FLYING like a HELI!!!

Now that I see these pix I wish I hadn't already spent my money on my G3
simulator. I just bought it because I thought I needed to train a little
before I took either my old -- I mean old -- Gmp Cobra out or the old EP
Concept. The Cobra's motor needs work so I have hovered the EP a few times
and I am glad I had the sim to practice with first.

I hope you people remember I said it was an RC aircraft but I thought it was
not a sim. I didn't think it was a full scale airplane or airport. No way
would that type a full scale aircraft do some of those stunts or any plane
that I know about.
