Let's hope it stays until the weekend too...will be chilly though.

I may have the Blue Nose finished by then too.

I have to start QUIETLY putting together the F-35 Thunderbird too, especially before the Sea Vixen kit gets here....

Thanks for the report Hung!

Cecil...nice to see you back lurking on this thread!

I've been glancing at the window for the past few hours and not seeing at hint of wind at ground level. Mother nature can be so cruel

At worst today was still 1 mile of visibility. Probably 3 miles now so plenty.

BTW, maidened the Spit last Thursday in no wind. I forgot how weak brushed motors were. It had a large left turn due to hinge at tip of left aileron broken and so was bent upwards. I had fixed it but not good enough so fixed it again over the weekend. Flight #2 this Thursday!! Sure wished PZ would put brushless into these UMs. They sell a lot more. Then again, they are selling plenty of replacement brushed motors this way.

+1 for brushless

Hate to mess with geared setups too.

Sunday looks great, very low wind, but very cold. Are we looking at a maiden of that F-35?

Hubsan X4 is also a fun little flier. I fly it at work most days @ lunch. Tons of fun and takes a beating.

Russ,
Did your version come with camera?

I'll wait for the brushless version to come out one of these day although the price would be a bit steeper. I've been eyeing the NitroPlane's version for a little more than half the cost but quality may be a bit less probably.
