yes my hat is official and remember refs also work in football and basketball as far as Jack211's T40 I am just the copilot and we will kick the ever livin crap out of everyone in the hover contest he just needed my stupidity and fearless attitude added as I'm diggin that plane big time I fly it very suttle for a minute or 2 and then I realize hey he's watching and would be ashamed of me so I crank it up and start jamming the sticks, I did the best inverted flatspin last weekend I've ever done it was holding steady at the same altitude even to where the guys were telling me to make it climb, but she wouldn't lol awesome though

There is no advantage I know of to stalling a servo or getting "Blow Back" of a surface. Either of these events happening causes very high amp draw and can cause brown outs / shorten a servo life dramatically.

Speed and Centering is a high priority, at least to me. Its like 72Mhz verses 2.4. With 72 the transmission is slower so often you are "chasing" the control, doing things in advance to comp for the latency. The next step is to take that latency of of the servo so slight move happen more real time. Hovering is a good example of fast minor corrections. If you are always a half move behind the needed correction, the chase is on.
Well thanks for the answers guys I was just wondering and I have to be honest in saying I've never noticed a plane hesitate on my command ever with my system and all I use are 3004's even in both my 1/4 scales but those aren't 3D planes so maybe they are fine maybe ill notice a difference in my edge when it eventually runs.

I've been on 72mz my whole life and plan on jumping to 2.4 maybe this winter even but I love it and if I want to FPV I think I need a 72mz mod pac for the 2.4 as I know we can't use 2.4 and FPV at the same time

Well we played outdoors today at a party luckily the rain didn't come but we were under cover anyway high of 57 or something I thought it was a great temp for rock and roll

Sorry for your snow guys hopefully an indian summer will melt it away fast but I think were going to get pounded this winter for having nothing at all last year I think we have to pay somehow lol

Waldo you didn't even mention that flatspin in your flight report last week.
Ah Indian summer. yes thats what we need after a couple of good frost to kill all the bugs.
Then the fall flying begins.
I've about got the Green Machine all ready for flight.
And I'm getting all pumped up for sunday flying.
I need to get the trainer up an going as well.

Just recieved my briefing from the club today. The boy scouts of america will have about 500-600 scouts at an old golf course in Olathe KS. part of the camping trip is learning about flight. They have requested that my local club help them. they will be mowing down the grass as low as it can go. I have been asked to demo my Pawnee for the kids. I get to fly in close and douse them all in baby powder. Its a big honor for me. To be a third year pilot and be picked as one of the only members to be trusted flying in such tight quarters. Guess I'm learning quick.
cant wait for next weekend.

That's great Wookie!! It's fun to introduce the hobby to people, especially kids!! Your club should be commended for giving back to the community like that and you should be very proud to make such a fun contribution. I think pics and vids are in order here for sure!!!

Happy Birthday Plowchild!

Kerwin.....have you been flying or what?

Waldo........I was going through some CDs, DVDs, etc......and low and behold......I find this dvd of Jack211 and I flying......brought back a lot of good memories. With him as the pilot and you as copilot......you're still gonna lose......I don't mean to speak ill of the dead, but he couldn't hover worth a damn, sorry Jack.......it's the truth!

Wookster, talc/baby powder in the eyes burns pretty good and it's effects are pretty bad when breathed in by asthmatics too.......wouldn't want good intentions turning into liability........just saying.

Maybe cornflour would be better? Not too many people allergic to corn.

Wook... that is great.... If this hobby has us as its legacy.... The Hobby needs help. I keep telling our club we need kids, and yes... they can be painful, but we are not getting younger <reason for mall shows>

My oldest is 28 and my youngest is 14...with a 16 yr old in the middle..but one important difference...they are all male children.
I consider myself very fortunate. However, I have two foster daughters who were 16 and 18 when they first came to stay with us, so I do have a small glimpse of what daughters are like. I'll stick to the boys, thank you very much. Do either of you guys sit on the front porch with a shotgun as a message for their respective boyfriends?

I have a 29 year old daughter from my first wife, she has collectively 5 kids between her and her husband. I missed many of those years with her, she did nt have the best start into her adult life. While I cant blame her mom completely, my daughter having 2 moms in the same house 25 years ago, it had to add to the challenges of growing up.

I am very lucky with my 16 years, she picked up the best of my wife and I and at this point, I fear for the boys more, she holds her own very well and has a great way of looking at things. The 11 year old however... too young to tell yet but in fear.

I took one in the garage once and cleaned my shotgun.
