1. blender chicken
2. ke spin chicken
3. low level KE wall practice
4. high speed inverted rudder drag
5. high speed KE wing tip drag
6. rocket motors (bit played out...)
7. fireworks
8. good ol' deadstick harrier landings
9. stripping the electronics and saving the airframe for a rainy day.

The best way I've found is to drop it on a wing end from a hover around 3ft. That crushes in the sides of the fuse. If you can get enough vertical fall before impact, it will neary break the Fuse in half by the TE of the wing.

This method protects the motor and servos.

Man, I need one of these. I wish Direct TV wasn't getting rid of FX and other fox stuff so I know I'd have the money to get one. Gotta buy a few channels on Tuesday if they don't have Fox Sports!

I'll second that. We have cable only because here it has to be bundled to get the internet. I have no ides if the cable is working as we never watch it. Only thing we watch is netflix on the Roku.

I have much more time for airplanes when I don't sit in front of the TV for hours.

the slicks and the edges seem to be the airframes that sell out most consistently in pre order.

this one is new, so I would imagine you have some time if you want to get in on the first batch. of course, for 3DHS sake, I hope I'm wrong. but I'm counting on at least a few left overs after they arrive--still building funds here also.
