Sweet! Thanks Jeff/Tyler for the video and review. Great job

Definitely interested to hear if you feel a difference with/without the SFG's as I've seen several shots of them with and without the SFG's. I'll probably be trying mine as well once I get used to the plane.

Maiden is planned for tomorrow!

Good luck! This airplane is a real winner, you will no doubt love it. Let us know how it goes!

Was a great day. Haven't had that much fun flying in a while.

Have a good week Cory!

Just give it some time . We all start somewhere, and flying 3DHS planes definitely helped a lot of us (myself included) advance our 3D skills tremendously.

It's great flying at LAMA with all the Addicts. It's like a mini fly low in every weekend.

Hi BoneDoc...

I have been flying RC off and on since 1972, if I can't do it by now, I don't think I ever will....but my son seems to get better every time we go flying....he has been flying now about four months or so, and is doing all knds of things I can't....but yes, I do believe that flying 3DHS planes does help.

Totally agreed. We need to protect what we've built there. This is the only club that I've ever flown belonged to that I actually fit it <mostly> ;-)

Joe and I were talking about this on Sunday. For many, many years, the airplanes and equipment were the limiting factor for most pilots, myself included. Now, with the superior airframes and reliable equipment, we're seeing HUGE gains in the quality and skills of each individual pilot. We might not all be aces in the end, but we're certainly not being limited by the equipment in any conceivable way. That breeds confidence, which breeds dramatically better pilots. Gotta love that.

I will totally agree 100%. I see it and hear it from guys at the field. I know I have.

10+ on that Scott,

I have several of your designs and certainly my attempts at 3D and pattern flying has improved by by leaps and bounds due to the confidence in the airframe and the design. I do not even like to practice on the simulator as I prefer trying different stick positions with your designs... of course initially at at altitude before bringing it down. Expecting the 330 SC to arrive anyday now and looking forward to the bigger Vyper or the Velox later this year.

I know you are a busy man and a great family person (father/husband) from my few conversations with you. Thanks so much for all your efforts in making us better "pilots" .... for us grounded folks at least!

Protect it is right! LAMA is a great place to fly. Not sure what steps we need to follow to keep growing the fun....? But I sure like where we are at!
