Yup, MaximumDave was flying his new Sbach and he really likes it!
He was flying it in some pretty strong winds and the Sbach held its own.
I thought it was kind of cool to see such a variety of planes.
Chet and Dave had their Slipstream planes, we saw Flopgun with his Extreme Flight plane,
as well as the usual 3DHS stuff too.
I really liked seeing Chet's extreme close-up hover with the MXS.

I did throw in a little surprise at the end!
This is available in full 1080p, check it out!

Nice video, I wish the footage of larry up in the tree would have turned out better

Wow, that is pretty freakin' awesome! I wonder if it is quieter than the gas equivalent engine. That thing would be a fun giant speed plane!

I was bored this morning, and found some sweet pictures here on RCGroups.
I think we need to figure out how to get more hot women at the field, and less hairy dudes.







I want to see Robert strike a pose like this with his Extreme Flight!

Great day at MARC today, nice weather, hardly anyone there. I flew a 65" Vyper and v2 SHP. Got some Imac pointers from Azhar and saw Chet having fun with his MXS. Saw Yosemite Sam fly a freebie SU-31, nice job. There were others. That's the late afternoon session highlights.

The afternoon was definatly great. No winds, the sun came out. Got some awesome/unfortuniate video of Robert doing a sweet knife edge right above the ground that ended in a cartwheel and a broken fuselage. I'm just getting the right stick positions for a knife edge spin on the SU-31. Taking it one step at a time
