I wonder how many times that has happened throughout the different incarnations of this thread?
I think my first post was here also. Whoda thunk?

Guys you'll never beleive it. You see I got this email from funflyer over over at flying giants.
He was wanting to know if I was going to make it to the kansas city huck fest.
So I was dicussing it with my wife and she asked me about car pooling with some of the club memebers. Thats when I told her NO I'm the only Hucker at our club. O she just smiled.

I think mine was too. I was on the dark side and someone told me to come over here if I wanted answers.

hi Guys, I've never visited this thread before but since I just got a Twist150 I thought I'd check it out. I bought an excellent example of a Hangar 9 150. It is in bind and fly condition, with all heavy duty servos, a Spektrum 7-channel receiver with satellite, and a very nice Saito 150 sitting up front. I paid, or should I say stole it, for $300 ! Looking forward to trying it out, it is my first plane like this.... Shoo

Welcome Shooboy!! Check out the first page of this thread for enough info to get up to speed, then ask any question you like here. We want you to have a good experience with your T---T or we want you to post a vid of its utter destruction, should that come about!!
Have fun, you'll like it here!

OK, I am going to try a three blade on the Kadet. Why you ask? Because I can I say. But, I am interested in the static thrust generated. The three blade should have more thrust although the cruise speed should be slower. It should also be a smoother running prop. There is supposed to be a small loss in efficiency but I don't think it is significant.

What say the masses?

If it EVER cools off, I will get my astronomy going again.

New record high here today. Hit 107 at my house and it is still 91 at 9:30pm.

Supposed to be under 100 starting tomorrow through next week.

I believe my first forum post was on the original thread over on the dark side. This is the only R/C forum I keep track of, been hanging around here so long it just doesn't feel right to not check in. The T---t is an excellent plane when you over power it, but it's a blast with a good running 40 size 2s as well. I don't really do 3D but used to punch some pretty impressive holes in the sky with mine.

I say tie it to a post with a fish scale and measure it.

Hey Kerwin, did you get any of that severe weather yesterday? I see OK and MO were hit pretty hard, even a couple of tornados.
