No, just eyeballs. When the Horiz stab becomes a dot, and then starts dissapearing, I come back down. Overcast - Sunny days make for much better videos.

Shane, nothing but nothing sounds like a big radial! Which one did you get, that big one from HK? You're gonna have a badas plane there!


Ron, I'm having the whole 9C delima too. PCM is much better than PPM. I'm gonna start with the Spektrum module and see what happens, I am trying it out on an Ultra Stick first.

Weather said NO Wind for Sat and it blew a gail, Sunday starts a 4mph and hits 10 by noon, since it is weather oposite weekend, I hope this means calm.

We had 23mph wind today so I decided to practice my big pretty loops as well as huge circles parallel to the ground while maintaining a constant radius. Trying to make circles in the wind is hard!

Also, I got a couple good torque rolls in today without really freaking out so I decided to go for a harrier roll about 30 feet off the ground.

Note to self, if you start pulling out inverted, keep pushing the stick forwards. Don't change your mind 8 times 3 feet off the ground or else you'll end up with the gear broken out, a hole in the wing, and 3 hours of gluing.

I did the Assan hack to a 7C a well. The only time I had a problem was with placement of the full range Rx in a 60 P-51 causing a lock out and crash. All the smaller Rx's I have used have been fine. If they would come out with a satellite Rx it would be perfect.
