It been a long week, I'm thinking about stopping after I get off work and picking up a Simon and Garfunkel video and a gallon of 10% glow fuel. Someone please talk me off of the edge!

Let's not start puting age with CC. That will mean I'll have to wait 20 yrs to build me a 50cc plane I want to do it in the next five years

Yeah !!!!!! what up wit dat I have to say ONLY REAL men use glow fuel. lol

DOG around here Labor day weekend is usually the weekend we go to a Yankee Game because we have so many invites to everyones Last Big Bar-b-que of the year we don't want to dissapoint everyone by going to one and not the other, But to get anyone to do anything that weekend in these parts or for the people I know anyway is near impossible.

Tower Sorry to hear of the mishap but nope it sounds to me like your experiencing all the fun a T_ _ _ T has to offer LOL I loved mine so much because I got to fly it and Build it over and over again

Did you say she wants to jump you or jump with you or both

Maybe you should send it to Waldo and he can throw it out of the plane right before he jumps
SnowDOG LOL no she wants to be the one to PUSH me
And Hell yeah I'll throw that T_ _ _ T out of a plane I might even hang on to the landing gear for a bit and see if I Can fly around with her

O the wind the wind when will it ever stop. But I guess it's spring.
Tomorrow is the Dog Show and I'm a little nervous. I only I could get a flight in before the show to calm my nerves. But not a maiden.
I may have to stop by K49's for a shot of glow fuel.
BTW K49 you got any pic's of your revovler yet.
I'm going to have to really hang on to my hat when you do a low high speed pass.

New Plane

Just finished the Revolver 70, its powered by an O.S. 1.20ax. The pilot looks like either Garfunkle or Waldo.

looking good but waldo hair is much longer and garfunkel is a bush head.
I think he looks like Gerry.
Now for those of you who do not know Gerry he's the guy who either never brings a plane to the field or one that doesn't work and then he wants fly ours.
BTW LT is Gerry going to maiden yours, I'd be glad to give him a call LOL

We went to check out a spot to sit for the airshow tomorrow. Little did we know they were just a couple minutes from starting their routine for practice. So we saw the whole thing today. It was super cool. Too bad the battery on the camera died after only a few minutes. Here is what I was able to capture.

Blue Angels practice 03_16_12 (3 min 8 sec)


When we got home I went out to the turf farm with my brother for some evening huckin. Video brewing. I have to get it from my brother and he decided to go across town lol. I might have it tonight but probly not till tomorrow.

On a sad note, My brother piled in the green 47" 3dhs edge I started my 3d journey with. I lent him a battery to fly it and he flew it for a good solid 8 minutes and hit LVC. Broke it right in half but I think a motor box would fix it. I talked to Scott Stoops the designer a few weeks ago and he let me know that the 48" motorbox is almost identical and will drop in with only a few mods. I'm secretly hoping my lipo is ok too

Awesome day overall! My family is so cool!

Right on Nate. I try and see the Blue Angels any time they are relatively close. Always a good show.

Nate I have heard a few guys say to disable the LVC. Better to lose a battery than a plane. now I just need to figure out how to disable the one on my EDGE

happy b day waldo you are the coolest guy ever
I must say also the nicest and kindest and most thoughtfull gentleman I have ever encountered, you really are a cool dude waldo

Mr. Snowman it is doing funny stuff here in Canada. It is snowing March 16th. 2012

As Kerwin said 5 times cycleing the rx pack makes the difference and i think so as well

Did some soldering today and put a watts up meter in between the 4cell aa rx pack to test out servos and rx draw, comes to about .5 amp with 3d draw with moveing the sticks
60 sized plane

My conclusion is to maybe l put two aa4 cells which will be 4000 mah aa 4 cells, heavy but I think needed for long range and nitro plane with skiis, heavy useage of servos for one hour min. looks to bring me down below 5 volts continuous supply.

two, four cell pack for rx will be used so no or none at all worries except loaded weight will be compromised.

this cub with skiis Mr. Snowman is one fat baby

this experimenting is driveing me crazy
