Mine does too. But our wives can't control our minds, we can still dream! Dream big Joe, dream big!

Cry!! Better get some good footage of the maiden. Can't wait to see it. Don't leave it in flops hands or we will have to wait 4 months to see it. (MARCOTICS). 🎥✈

Headed out to the "scale fly in" out at TCMAA to check out some planes that will never do more than a circle. Some won't even ever make the first flight.

Cry had a very non-eventful, very successful, maiden. Great job on the build and set up.

Here are a couple of pics.

I must say that's a gorgeous plane!!


Sold my Great Planes Extra today......almost pushed the button on the MXS by extreme flight but I'm putting those pennies towards
a bigger Extra. After seeing all the bigger planes today at the field I almost felt like my 60" was a dwarf.
Mostly a bunch of older Yaks and a ton of warbirds and Cubs. Those guys put a lot of work into some of those models though I give em props for having scale looking stuff.

Cry your plane was even more gorgous in person, certainly worth a second visit to MARC today. Get that puppy dialed in for Huckfest & fly it like a 3D bat out of hell! Also great to meet yet another norious member of the rebellious & insidious 3D Mob.

Thanks all,

I gotta tell you. I was very very nervous. Thumbs shaking and all.
I took it very easy with those two flights I got in today..would have perhaps flown more, but I definitely have to install some baffling. The throttle response goes to crap when the motor gets too hot. I'll get that done asap so I can put some more flights in before huck.

Steve, no, there wasn't any video shot. My flying style isn't video worthy until I get more familiar with this airframe and get the year long accumulation of dust blown off my low skill set
