Ya, I love Mrs. BladeHead too. When we go out together, it's a regular sideshow. Actually, the flight was much longer than you see in the vid, but I cut the parts that weren't so "family-friendly."

Like I said in earlier posts, most of the Dynam decals in the set are pretty tacky. If u get this plane, u'll want to come up with ur own livery, or get the Eastern Air Lines "Great Silver Fleet" decals here: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXGAU1&P=7

thnx ;-)

Bladehead, I take it you have some RC experience ... I would very much like to know when you have put a couple of more flights in ( hopefully the US of A gets a break from all that snow, here in Flanders we only have 1 inch or so ) and really got to know the bird, if if you could give a further flight report on how she behaves and with what you can compare her ...

that would be very much appreciated ...

Ya, I see Nitroplanes is out of stock. Looks like Dynam sells it direct, but I don't know if they export for retail... Their addr: http://www.dynam-rc.cn/en/product_li...ssid=14&id=399

Guy5927, we were hammered with another big snowstorm here and there's about a meter of snow from 2 storms on my flying field. I'll report back here, once I get some more flights on the DC-3. More vids to come.

at least i got my sticker kit before they were gone, now have to wait 4-6 weeks for dc-3 to restock at nitroplanes!!

Hey, BladeHead, what do you think about the radio that comes with the DC-3?

It's a 72mhz radio, not as nice as my DX6i, but I'm comfortable using it until I convert the plane over to 2.4ghz. It has indicator lights that show battery strength and a metal carry-handle much like more expensive radios. Stick/control response is good. In the little bit of flying I've done with this plane, there wasn't any glitching that I could detect. Only thing on the minus side, is the pull-out battery holder for the 8 AA's. You have to fiddle with it and the wiring to get it to fit back into the radio and get the cover back on. It does have a charger jack, so if you got a power supply and re-chargeable batteries for it, that would take care of that issue.

Nice looking little foamy. Thought I would chime in although most of you know about Callie Graphics. If you can't find decals I ordered some from her custom made and she was decent on the price and fast. It was like 20 bucks for my B-17 decals.

http://www.callie-graphics.com/

I dont work for them just like the products I have got so far. Very top notch.
And just watching the thread I have a Polks C-47. Love this plane.

I flew my DC-3 again just after sunrise this morning and she did fine in a steady breeze. You can fly around scale at about 1/2 throttle, or power up a bit and do easy loops and rolls. The motors sound great when you do a low-level full throttle fly-by. This plane will haul when you push her a bit. To land, I just kept on a little power as she came down, then held it a couple of inches above the pavement, chopped power and she settled in on the mains.

Once the weather warms up around here and the snow is gone, I'll send my FlyCam up with her. This plane should be a good platform for some nice, smooth on-board video.

They are back in stock. I just ordered one. For those of you who own the Skybus, what do you think of it?
