Here is a 30 second video of Michael and I landing his Extreme Flight 88" Extra 300 at our home. We flew it here for the first time last week and the runway is JUST big enough! The first landing is mine and the second is Michael's. What fun! This airplane is 4 1/2 years old and the airframe is holding up amazingly well! We lost a wheel pant in flight, but it will be back on soon. It's still got the original DA-50 and 4 of the original JR 8611a servos that I bought 2nd hand 5 years ago.
Can anyone say quality? !!!

Great touchdowns. Nice having your own flying field without noise restrictions. Thanks for sharing, you need to install a tail hook!

Oh that's it! Nobody calls the earl of whirl a coward! I'm puttin on my mittens, long underwear, wool sweater, insulated boots, ski hat, down vest and arctic water/wind proof parka and 3d kickin your

Its on Flop! Bring it!

Name the time & place for the soon to be legendary 3D Mob Air War.

It appears that the best weather is on Sat. Nov 10th / 46 Degrees / Partly Cloudy / 10% Chance of Precip / 100% Chance of 3D Whoop

MAR/C or KARCS would be cool or perhaps Barn Owls indoor flying at Magnuson Community Center on Sat. I look forward to some fun, laughs & amazing 3D flying.

Reminder: Barn Owls indoor flying at Magnuson Community Center Sat Nov 10, 6-10 pm.

In two weeks, I'll have this one ready. It's a 1960's Comet P-38 kit originally rubber band powered, but I'm converting it to electric. I expect it will come in under 200 grams flying weight including electronics and battery.

It was the link connection between the split packs so not only did replacing the 4mm with a 6mm bullet fix the problem I picked up another ~5% in amperage. Initally the Revolectix was dominating but after the change the TP came out on top (but not by much).

Thanks for the vote. If by some miracle I am elected, I understand the difficulty and challenges of serving on the board. It will be no easy task, a ton of work, much patience, duration to build trust / respect and some time to create positive change.

I remain hopeful that the MAR/C board wants to play nice on Nov 14th
however I am prepared to rally a full out / full on media publicized revolution if they wish.

If you meet me in person don’t be deceived by my quite exterior & appearance of a meek demeanor. When I see non-repentant corruption, injustice or foul play I am an outlaw bounty hunter and I have already helped bring in a couple bad guys.

You need to forward this post to Thunder Power. For a premier battery builder that's a pretty cheesy design error.
