Ive been going down to my local park which is Centenary Park which has a cricket ground behind its lake and ive followed the rules about other people on the park and havent had a prob yet with anyone complaining. I put 3 batteries through the Beast this morning at the park and it was magic with very little breeze.

I googled Sutherlands Park and hope to get down there soon so i can meet some of you and learn a bit more.. I also have a HD video camera and a pretty good camera setup which i use for photographing birds in flight and now also rc birds. Pic is from Yokine park flyers meet.
Cool

That's quite a progression you've made in 12 months!

Well done and look forward to meeting you (when I finally get more than 5 minutes back in Perth)!!

Ive got a few planes already but i dont have the hat yet for sure and its one of the reasons i have to get with other flyers so im not learning bad habits without knowing it. I dont think im even at medium level yet and the only reason im flying the Beast is because the UM T28 went through 2 motors and ive been waiting for ages for some brushless bits to convert the T28 from HK. If i was to buy a 4 channel trainer now id get the PZ Archer thats just come out and i still might get it because i dig planes.
Easterly is still blowing out there but im going to take the Beast out anyway Its such a nice plane for me as a trainer and ive even fluked a couple of micro hovers but where it shines for me as a trainer is coming in to land and even with no power its easy to float in with a bit of speed and i stall it just above the ground and it just plops onto the deck.. Beginners thrills

Where was everyone Sunday morning?? Rocked up at 7am, no breeze. Had a fly of the Radian Pro. Then I had the need.... the need for speed.

First time in over 2 years, got my Parkzone Stryker up and moving.

Small video here out the back of the Stryker.
