You know what is nice about a run of bad luck? Statistically, you're due for some good flying.

Did y'all know that 73% of statistics are made up on the spot?

Dave, how small and supersonic are we talking here? I've already posted my own little monster a few times in this thread... It has a 20" span, runs right around 100mph, and will be good for 110+ once I get the last of the power system bugs worked out. Took zero clicks of trim to get it dialed it

That's a sweet wing you have there. Does the forward nose section give it more stability? Dave...

Im still not sure whether to get a 130 or 300X next...
I've got a Trex 450 so will the 300 be too much alike?

I think I like the 130x better. Though not as powerful as the 300x you can throw it around easier and it seems to handle the wind better! My 300 gets blown all over the place. The worst seems to be getting taken vertical. It just is up before I can back off the cyclic. This doesn't happen in 0 wind situations and my 130x doesn't do this.
