it broke off at the field. I bumped it. It wasnt even a hard hit, just enough though. It appeared as if all the hinges broke at the same time. Im guessing that they must have been starting to fail recently. I never looked very close at the hinges for pre-flight check, I guess I got lucky.

Sounds like a good way to go about it. Maybe I will attempt.


Thanks

Big Foot

Anyone know if Bigfoot will be able to do KE Spin, rolling circles, or a flat spin?

i had a 48 mxs, landing gear was very fragile and overall i just couldnt get the feel for it, now i have laser and love it, but i all the time worry about LG snapping...

i'm waiting for my 48" 3dhs edge to be delivered, would be interesting to see what i think about it now;...
Nope, nothing against EF....P.A. is the one that gets my wrath....

It's clear and you can hardly notice it. The plastic is hard and you can drag the rudder all day long and it won't wear thru.
That is a very good idea...will have to store that one away in the ol' noggin...

Wondering if the as3x receiver system would make a slick smooth out even more.
Slicks fly great anyways just wonder if this would ice the cake?

I don't think I would want one in a 3D plane (kind of like no gyros), but would be nice in a Gee Bee or something like that....

I can get the slick to out tumble the velox. I have the 70 velox and 71 slick at my disposal and had the 72 extra. The 71 rotates much better.
