Edit 2: That's my boss trying to swat the oversized bug out of the air during the second excursion, in case anyone was wondering
The part with your boss was priceless

I've added you to the hall of fame

Nice challenge I cant wait to see somebody do this one. What are you going to name it though? The Picnic-Stormer?

Also in the future can you post your challenges in their corresponding colours in size 5

What do I think? I think the "special challenges" should have something for "quad 3d."

Best,
Chris

I have a pair and they are rubbish, poor quality video and the microphone barely works

You would be much better off using one of these:

As for the helipad, well djdavies83 knows all about my wonderful design, the problem is he never has any ink in his printer

I see no option to change text size or color (I clicked advanced and I looked)

is there BBC code I can "add" to make those changes or something ?

I figure call it the "Barn Stormers Loop" to harken back to the days of the old biplane stunt flyers :-)

In post reply there are little icons in the bar above the window you type in (unless you are on the mobile site) left click and highlight the text you want to make bigger/change the colour of then click the appropriate icon.

Anther way is to hit "quote" delete away everything but the [ ] around the coding for colour and size and write your own text over what was there in between them.

I started writting this a couple of hours back then college started, this may have been answered by now but I don't know

Cheers It was a pretty difficult challenge! The prop wash in the bath (no pun intended) kind of sucked the heli into the tub. It was especially hard trying to take off inside the tub with nearly flat batteries and breaking through the suction vortex.

Anyways past challenges aside, the next challenge is

Heli: The Motorcross Jump: Setup a empty folder for a jump on the floor, or whatever you may have laying around to construct a small jump. Now approach and jump the jump while remaining in ground effect. Try not to use any additional throttle jumping the jump and do not touch the jump with your skids, let the ground effect do all the work

Just take out the (!)'s, and put your text in between them

[(!)SIZE="5"][(!)COLOR="Red"]...............[/COLOR][/SIZE]

Additionally you can hold "control" and press "I" to bring up more square brackets.
