ROFLOL -

I was waiting for the WOS Judge to weigh in on Kerwin's landing. I was thinking WOS but I wanted to hear from the expert.

We had a hard freeze last night, high teens. lots of icing in the region. We were planning on going to the Springfield, MO area but I think it might be better to wait. I think most of Oklahoma will be frozen.

Our worst weather for trips is always going to Missouri for Christmas.

Our Yorkie made out like a bandit... She by smell, can tell which gifts under the tree were hers and insists on opening them herself. She is 4 and has done this the last 3 christmas, she is rotten spoiled.

Yorkies are kids too! (0 min 55 sec)

Damn I was hoping not. What about if some one else retrived it? Does the walk of shame count against me or the retriver.

You need to put a receiver in there and a continuous-rotation servo on that tail so you can control it.

Waldo, once the snow falls, the temp drops.That snow pack really chills the air. Even poor Wayne is shoveling ice, but his best flying season is about to come.
We're battling 20 degree temperatures and thats our highs. My only prayers are that we don't get an Alberta clipper. Even a brass monkey's family jewels couldn't survive that blast of cold.

Santa bought me a new UMX carbon cub SS. This bird is gorgeous. For an ultra icro it is well above what you would expect. Did the first maiden today at a family christmas party. She flew like a dream. Super high lift. Just wanted to touch the clouds. did a few aerobatics, but of course factory settings have minimal control throw. will be tweaking her now. crazy thing was the flaps. every time i hit them she would go into a hover. just lost all ability to fly. Thankfully i have a dx8 and i will change the switch and values and speed of that flap servo to tame her. my guess is the flaps are there to support the towing feature. this baby is designed to tow a UMX glider and release her. I dont have the glider, but i will offer this up, anybody within a days drive who buys the glider is welcome to invite the wookster out to tow it for them. (kerwin this is your hint. if I have to i will buy the glider, but you better be ready to fly the Carbon. I know you are more than capable) Such a sweet little bird. These UMX's are the reason i don't get bigger planes. I start to save up for the bigguns, then some new micro comes out that I must have. HH owns me.
