They flew beautifully, and that was a great video. I really hope you will fix them and get them back up in the air. Rest from the marathon leading to this event, and then fix'em... They are amazing and graceful!

Such beautiful aircraft. The T-38 is definitely one of the most beautiful designs ever built and these models did them justice. So graceful in flight. So realistic if appearance and in sound. I hope to see them again someday.

Falcon I thought you were going to run some telemetry on the Talon? Did you decide not too? In any case you guys rock I really wish I could have been there. Are you and Brent going to repair them and try again at a later date to fly them together?

I would like to offer my condolences to both of you. Absolutly an outstanding effort, and a job well done. I have no doubt that these birds will be back in the air again!

C/N, I believe you have shown the power of the JetFan 90's! Whodu thunk, 2-90's could power a 40+lb jet. I know you generalized on watts, but did you ever get a read out on watts/amps? Which ESC?

Great video, both were flying awesome, I particularly like the inverted coaxing of the gear. It really hurt to watch them go in, but both of you did the best you could with the situation at hand. Really hoping to see them back in the air together.

In the heli world we disable LVC since saving the model is usually preferable to saving the battery, even an expensive battery. Something to consider for the future perhaps?

Great video work.
I am impressed with you guys work. I worked with foam only years ago but gave it up due to foam dust sticking to everything...wife didn't like that But seeing what you two did is amazing and as it has been mentioned before, a true inspiration to us all....Thank you.

Back at the hotel after a full day of flying..we had a great time today and we flew sooo much. We didn't ding any airplanes today though so that was good

Thanks guys for all the kind words about the T-38's..It sure was an experiance building the big bird and I learned sooo much.

The two fans and equipment that were in the T-38 will fly again..maybe in another jet, but will fly again.

Thanks again for all the support.

Andy
