Hmmm... I see all of the shots of the Orange/White racer were PRE-Stab loss. It would have been cool if we had gotten an image that showed it flying without one of them!

Very nice Dan,

Looks scale in the Air.

I had my PSS and DS planes charged up for today since I missed Friday's session, but then my wife asked me to take her and her friends shopping. (Damm I should have snuck out of the house at day break for "coffee").

Do you know "Bill" the guy who built the Big Dauntless? He really needs to fly that plane at Torrey vice Cajon. At least he would have 200 yds of grass to land that baby on vice Cajon's scrub.

This is still a big mystery to me.....I still think it came off on the landing and just ended up getting blown to Yuma!

As hard as it was blowing this morning, it might have made a pitstop in Yuma, but it's probably well on it's way to Colorado by now!

Here's a link to my little film trailer:

Fantastic model and a great vid. It's neat to see something different like that flying.

Is that a kit or a scratch build?

I converted a Great Planes Lear Jet to a PSSer. Wasn't expecting much o/a the gasser aerfoil, but she is a treat to fly and goes great in 20+ knots.

Thaks Paul and yes Marty, I could not stand to let this thing sit un flyable after a day like we just had. Don't want to get caught with my pants down if we get another soon. Still not sure that this would fly so well with only half of the elevator but we tore that bush area apart for 30 minutes and no sign of it.
