Had a nice quick trip to the field this morning before my son's soccer game.

New ProTek 20x8 prop now that the PTE is broken in good. Boy what a difference a prop makes. It went from being pretty squirrelly last week to smooth like butter this week. We got a nice tune on the motor and now everything just feels so smooth.

Here is a bit of vid.

3DHS 70" Slick new 20x8 protek prop :D (3 min 15 sec)

Here are some of our guys flying this morning. If you couldn't go out, maybe you can enjoy this. I have a lot of landings in this. Two Kadets, a UCD 40, a Big Stick, Magic, and a trainer with a Saito 65 on it. He is a new guy and I can't remember his name.

I just shot video.

Anyway...

Yes, it has ailerons. It is a "kitchen sink". Nine servos with the sailplane tow on it. Eight channel Orange RX fasst rx with a Y for power on channel 8. Two servos on the bomb doors and one has a reverser on it. Six inch Dave Brown lite treaded wheels. Robart fueler and a Sullivan remote glow. It also has one of those Dubro four stoke throttle rigs on it.

Kind of a demo of rc gadgets.

Thanks for the compliments The slick is just an amazing plane and does all the hard work for you. It is truly a pleasure to fly.

I hope everyone is doing well! I haven't had a chance to catch up on all the reading. The public accounting recruiting season has been really intense. I have been doing a lot of driving for interviews and office visits. Things are looking positive for my number 1 choice of firms. I drove around 700 miles on Thursday. I got home at around 1:30 AM after getting up at 5:00 AM.

I have interviewed with three firms so far and expect to get second interviews with two of them. I'd be surprised if I got a call back from the third one. Usually I find it to be a bad sign when his body language said the interview was over after about 10 minutes. I stretched it out to around 20 minutes with some questions and follow-up questions. I can usually extend a conversation but I don't think I am a candidate very high up on their list. Besides... they are in Las Vegas and have about 60% gaming clients which I would rather avoid.

Nate that torque roll showed great contro, I'm not sure if everyone can appreciate how much. Even great planes don't do that for you! Nice flying. .
