I think the (video) solution is already in progress:

Michael does his video and then maybe we can get a couple from guys who have the plane like Big Roger and Long Leng. It's nice to see a good video from a team pilot and also good to see footage of some mere mortals...I don't see a problem here.

Holy cow! Give it a rest already! I'm beginning to wonder if you fly at all or if your hobby is just coming in these threads and complaining about things that have already been proven. If I had your NV weather, I wouldn't hardly ever be in these threads. I'd be flying instead of being stuck inside with gale force Kansas winds and cold weather. I consider myself an average to good pilot and I've flown this plane about 6 times (weather permitting) and I haven't seen any bad habits. That said, I'm beginning to think no matter who fly's this plane and what they say about it, your still going to find something to complain about. If you don't like a certain company or a certain plane, post your complaints and then go away.

So, a flight report from anyone as well as their setup on its way? How about some pages with info and not a bad jerry springer script in this thread.....?

nope, personally here i go with michaes opinion. i find 7 min unedited videos mostly really boring. half of the time the plane isnt even on the screen....just a point somewhere at the sky. the art is to find a good balance between cutting and too much cutting.
why i say he should do 2 videos is because many people here doubt the plane wouldnt wingrock etc. so it would help them too and therefore hk too (in case it performs well.

OK you got me... My 3d skills aren't perfect. Never even claimed to be any good! You win! I'm a thousand miles from perfect. but... hey, probably scared to be ridiculed too. So right on all counts. Congratulations. I have flown in lots of shows in front of thousands... scared every time, and worried they will see how bad I really am.

Hey can you imagine with the mean spirited people here what would happen to me if I posted something they can say sucked? WOW... I would have to be insane.
thought you were scared

Stop being a troll.
Good afternoon! Thanks for mentioning flying. I just got home from the field, and flew my 2 flights on each of my planes: 3DHS 59" Slick, 48" Super Vyper, 48" Edge, and my EF 48" MXS-EXP. Oh, and 3 flights on my RS-352 EPP Foamy.
The nice thing about technology these days is that in between flights while I'm charging batteries, I can get onto RCG using Tapatalk on my iPhone.
But yes, the weather here is great for flying right now.

Well you addressed your flying habits, now how about addressing your other habits?

everyone we are so close to having actual flying videos posted please lets just be quiet until info comes in then we can actually have something to look at.. right now we are going back and forth about information that has not even been posted.. If this continues I will just close this thread. Something I wish I could do with the other thread. NO MORE random talk about anything other than this plane.

Ryan, if you want to CONTROL what people are able to post about, then I suggest you utilize the sticky thread option:

Extracted from JBourke's post: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showp...14&postcount=1
"Sticky Threads - All sticky threads are moderated by the thread starter. If you want to have a thread stickied (or unstickied), you can accomplish this by reporting the first post in the thread. Choose "Stick/Unstick this thread" from the list of report options."

Then if someone posts a comment you don't like, you can delete it.
I would suggest this as the best method to guiding the discussion within this thread to only the subjects that you personally approve of.

Your statement was a little strong to say the least - hope this helps...

A leader leads through persuasion and guidance allowing for others to take ownership and belief in the goal as one...

A dictator someone who guides through demands and statements of what one wants as a goal for themselves....

I hope you see the difference and can poke prod - to keep this thread on topic
