very cool z! maybe we can get some mag action with both our birds together.

so, do you think youll be up to flying the hawk with FPV by vegas? i think it would be cool to chase my T38 with it, and capture inflight footage!

Yeah that will be too cool to get both T-38's in the mag..

The time line for the FPV in the Hawk will be close by Vegas. I just ordered a GoPro2 HD camera to replace the Sony cam I have now. The GoPro will be much better.

I will try and get er' done.

Tell Joel you have way to much work to do. Then you will have plenty of time.

Hi John,

I had one more flight scheduled for the 38 before Vegas but my dry lake bed isn't so dry anymore with all the rain we have been getting so I may just wait for Vegas. Will see if it dry's out in the next week or so.

Keep up the good work Nut... you can do it!!! If you maiden her the first day you get to Vegas on Thursay I may take an extra day off and be there to see it.

I will bring the radar gun again this year if you want to check speeds. Sometime during the event maybe you could radar mine on final to see what I am crossing the fence at on landing and I can check yours.

Cool, I would liike to talk quads with ya at the event. I just got the Witespy quadrino..havn't flown it yet but they seem like very cool flying machines. From a hover blast stright up 500 feet up to another hover, then forward flight what I estimate close to 100MPH all with goggles on...should be an E ticket ride for sure.

Keep at it guys. Vegas will be really amazing this year regardless of weather if these two 38's can fly together.
