I'm flying tommorrow at 10-11am too. See you, guys..

..About the BBQ, I have been down lately and chores at home kept me busy, so planning took a back seat. Besides, Jay's been busy trucking and I'm kinda shy to go his house and borrow the grill, lol. I would really love to proceed with this, guys. Kinda miss the gang. Give me a date, guys this time with utter commitment...

Hey guys I might be out there not 100% yet. If I get my nitro plane together in time than I'll be at the sunrise area if not than I'll see you guys with some electric stuff.

Gent you are welcome anytime to grab the grill or anything you need buddy. I'm open to all my friends. Even if I'm not here just call me. Hope to see you guys tomorrow.

Nice to see you again, Jay. Yep, the strong winds kept us from flying, though I managed to sneak in a couple of flights with the Skywalker with Ardupilot Mega.

Happy Independence Day, everyone!

It's basically at highway 50 and Power Inn road. Great spot for helis and belly landers, and maybe ROG planes if you got mad skills lol.

Had a good time flying today at the spot that Shoruken mentioned a couple posts ago. Good size area with nice grass to land on.

Parkzone Stryker Chasing P-51 in HD, Crash! (1 min 27 sec)


In this video I tried chasing Sho's P-51 for a while until I took a turn too slow and landed a little rough! The only damage at all is to the motor shaft, will be needing a new motor...

Shoruken's Parkzone P-51 (3 min 55 sec)


This is Sho's P-51 doing some laps

Parkzone Stryker HD Video Platform 3 (4 min 42 sec)


This is the last flight of the stryker with the camcorder strapped to it, going to remove it and set it up for normal flight.

Test/Maiden

I got some good test glides @ Power Inn on Tues. Had great maiden and subsequent flights Wed @ Grant Line. Absolutely no trim adjustments either location. First time for everything I guess. Maybe I just got lucky.
