Got a 34" DW Raven pro indoor kit from Mike the other night and dropped it off at "joethefloormans" this afternoon for a little bit of his airbrush skillz. I told him "Keep it simple, don't spend a lot of time on it!" He said "Ya no problem, I'll get to it next weekend!" A couple hours later I get this picture in a text

That perfect, just a little color, I would have felt bad if he had gone all out like he is very capable of. Another hour later I get this "Couldn't leave it alone!"

Are most people air brushing, painting or snickering their planes. Would be interested how you're getting the race patterns and any advice for first time owner. Love the plane! Have the Yak..wondering if I can get it to turn tighter. Have the gear on it and wondering of that is hurting the spin radius.

I thought it was going to end because DW was making a kit with full EPP fuse and wing...maybe just when the control surfaces are, too

Really was him...he is flying with Joe Smith by age 9. The kid is unreal. YouTube search him and you'll see all he's done.

he's been around for a few years now, and he's no longer a little whipper snapper. Saw a vid of him throwing down on a 60" Extra EXP recently and he's legit. He'll be sponsored in no time.

Hey- on a different note, are any of you night flying. I have no idea where to start and novice big time here. Do I just by LED strip from HK and then plug into the receiver? Is it that complicated?

DW offers some lighting kits on their website. I'd check those out if you are interested in nightflying.

Get with mike at DW for one of the "Flight Lights" kits. They are so worth it IMHO.

??? You think the video of Justin Jee is fake? Just think, that video was from 2005. Check out some videos of him now. He's unreal. His heli flying is even more impressive.
