Had a cracking few hours this afternoon with my sabre, T45 and Texan AT6 fun fighter, I flew the Texan on 4s for the 1st time today doesn't seem as quick as the Trojan funfighter tho but still great fun. My friend had his Texan funfighter out also which is practically his 1st time managing to fly it. It crashed last time out on its maiden and broke. He also has his PZ T28 and durafly vampire 70mm edf

Maidened the t45 but broke a servo horn on landing so that was that

Nice looking fleet right there! ^^

I just had spent my lunch hour at a field. Three packs through my Edge 540QQ and a coupkle through my DSM Ladybird. Good times! Numb fingers though.. Was supposed to be a bit warmer! I had to sit in the car and warm up for a few mins between each flight!!

Was plenty warm enough here, but the 20 mph wind with + 25 gusts just sucked the fun right out of flying the lightweight planks we like to bring out to the field. I flew the Edge qq, the UMX Beast (once) and the Stryker a couple of times just so the day would not be a total waste, but most concentration was on avoiding mishap, not enjoying the flight.

I've had a charged 3S 1800mAh pack laying around since the coyote hunting trip a week and a half ago, so I decided to stop killing it and go drain it instead. Tossed it into the "new" red Stik plane and headed for the ball fields by the lake.

Well, then I saw the almost-pristine surface of the snow on the lake itself and I was sold. I've wanted to do that forever, and today the stars aligned for me.

I dunno, though... I continue to be disappointed with this plane. The original version had some bugs but it flew beautifully once I got it worked out. The new one is almost a carbon copy and should be similar in the air.... It's not. It's pitchy, twitchy, slow, unstable, impossible to trim, and hard to even keep in a straight line. To put it bluntly, it SUCKS. I hate it and I don't know what's wrong with it. It won't "groove" and I just feel like I'm fighting it every step of the way. The only good part is the ability to slow down to a nice landing, which is really excellent by any standards.

Hrrrm. I like the little pylon bullets better. They just fly so sweet, even keeping it below 100mph.
