Thanks!! Agreed, that's also my favorite shot.

(unfortunately, looks like rcgroups.com new update may be compressing the pics a little more now so the pics aren't as good of quality as they used to be...)

Matt-

Really nice pics dude. I am really diggin both schemes of this plane. The red looks so sharp.

How come I don't see more vinyl on these? I put the big "EXTRA" and "330SC" on my wings cause I brought it out to the field the first day without decals, I got tired of saying it.

Guess it is still quite new. Decal accrual takes time. I admit, I do save some bigger decals for covering up mishaps and hanger rash.

BTW- The low KE is my fav.

Yeah that's a tough call. The 330SC comes so great look right out of the box it's tough to "add" to the looks with sticker set provided. But to you're point I did use the smaller stickers just so I didn't have to answer the "what plane is that" question over and over.

I'm running the Reaper 60 powerd by a Rino 4s 4000 25c spinning a Vox 15x6 wooden prop. But next flight I'll be trying a Vox 15X7.

How do you like the Vox props? I've never used anything but APC, but I'm wanting to branch out and try Vox, Xoar, etc, this time around....

How do you like those props? Thinking the plastic have too much tip flex. might try a woody.

Anybody have any input in the differences b/t plastic and wood?

I've found the wooden props are a more efficient. Much less flex then the cheaper APC's I was buying. Batteries are coming down less warm and better over all flights.

2 drawbacks:
1.) less "growl" during KE spins and water falls due to the less blade flex (I do love that sound).
2.) They will shatter easy on ground contact (pro side is it saves the motor, shaft and motor box) and they're right at 10 bones each.

I'm running Vox props on all my non foamy planes.
Ohh and I happen to like Vox over Xoar... if only because they are a shade darker in color.

Thanks, yea decals are still coming but I'm still digging the 'clean' look right now. I'll be putting them on this winter once I'm convinced where/what decals I want. (This is a big process for me )

It is now...

Yeah.

Ox... oxen... Vax... vaxen. Vox... voxen. Box... boxen. Etc.

It's an old-school UNIX geek thing, actually.
