KaiWe - GREAT report - sounds like an awesome time! It's great to fly with friends, and when you flying buddy is your son, it just doesn't get any better!

Turbo Racer - I had mine out this a.m. - man, that thing is AWESOME!!!!!!! I flew my Mig this weekend for the first time since I bought the Sbach 3D and it felt like a slug!!! Man, that Sbach has ruined me!

Hahaa. I hear ya! Im actually flying a V1 sbach that i put Beast 3d guts in. It flies azing! Unlimited vertical, i love it!

If i cant make my mig faster reliably, it'll be up for sale soon. I like flying it, just gets old after a while. Need some rocket speeds to wake it (and me) up

flew the cub way too low and far this morning. she's still tail heavy and when i lost track of her i figured i'd shut throttle and let her down. broke the fuse just front of tail. put one loop of tape and she was back up in the air. i don't think my spit of trojan would have been that satisfied with one loop of tape. will epoxy her tonight.

Man, it flew great. As good as it was in the wind, can't wait to get some calmer days to really put her through her paces. Put 3 batteries through her, then decided to not tempt fate with trying to do more in that wind.

I'm running MiniAviation 210s and they seem to be a perfect fit.

Hoping that my buddy from local park will want to go flying at dusk tonight, and that wind will have tamped down some by then. If so, I can grab these currently recharging batteries from the parallel charger, and do it all again!

What kind of expo are you using for your AS3X planes? I don't need it, but I really need it on my Polecat.

Tracknoob - you are in for a treat - It is fun even in the wind, but when it's calm you'll be amazed at what that thing can do.

Felt Ripper - awesome!! Sorry to hear about your T28. Don't trash it, though, the guts are worth something if you sell them.

Abdul - I am using +30% on the Sbach - you aren't supposed to with AS3X but I was terrified of this thing.

Thanks!

Yup, I saw they were silent on expo in the manual, but I put 30% in mine by habit as well, and it seemed to be about right.

I also not only put in the 70% rates, but 50% rates as well, and it flew nicely (at high altitude on that), but mostly I left it on high, and even with that ridiculously high roll rate at the limits, it still controlled nicely in the middle of the stick, and I could even slow roll it, and easily and slowly alternate between inverted and normal flight.

Actually, I lied about that. A little epoxy was all it needed

I was wiped out after work. After running a quick errand I took about an hour nap. I woke up around 5:15pm. Checked with the boss and then was at the field at 5:45pm. Put three good flights on the Eflite T-34 in pretty windy conditions. 18mph gusts. Nice slip in landings.

Made the most of my day. FPV session before work in relatively windy conditions.

Went to work and put a solid day in.

Driving home I noticed how windy it was, so grabbed my Multiplex Xeno and had an awesome slope soaring session on top of some locals sand dunes.

Awesome!
