I'll be there, and we'll see at what speed a thrashed Fascinate will reach before self destructing in the racing (bumping from 2s450/2250Kv/8x4, to 3s850/2250Kv/6x5.5 just for the races, ).

For those who don't know what a Fascinate is, it's the foamy in the attached pic that the dog is chomping into (in fact, the very plane in the pic ).

It is Chris's doggie, and that was only one of about 5 times he caught it that flight (I got away many times too).

I only stopped because my battery ran flat, the plane was flying till the very end (even with half the elevator dangling loose and holes throughout the chassis). Everyone else was teasing the dog out of reach, so I gave it something to sink it's teeth into (what fun is it to watch a dog hopelessly chase a plane that isn't in it's reach, IMHO that's no fun, hehe).

On Saturday after the racing is over, I'll be "feeding the dog" the Fascinate again, so make sure to stay later this time (of course, that's contingent on Chris bringing the pup).

-Kai

P.S. I was actually planning on retiring the Fascinate, I'm bored with it and realized I hate 2cell power systems (this was the first 2s setup I've tried, I HATE IT!!!). The Fascinate would already be retired (I have a different kit to replace it with), but I have been too tied up building a new Shuriken v2 parkjet to tear the electronics off it.

Nice meeting you Vitter - love the AJ Slick.

Not a 3d pilot myself, just started in the hobby about 3 weeks ago, but hope to be someday.

going to be out there early tomorrow since I have to bail not long after 1pm or so.

Vitter, glad to see you again and I'm glad you are now a 3DHS convert as well.
