Bob, I bet you will want to fly when you get there. If not though no big deal. I don't think any one will give you a hard time. Well maybe Ben.

I will definitely pay to fly at Huckfest. I figure even if I only get a few flights in, just watching the chaos is worth the money. OH, and I am going to win a plane in a raffle. Thats the plan anyway.
great suggestion... The man has progressed to the point where I am letting him fly autonomously with his own radio. he is off the box....... I even plan to do that at Huckfest as well

he may or may not have an Aurora 9 or may be using mine if I can score one this week

That wasn't threading the needle. That was ohh where did that plane come from. I didn't see it and by the time I reacted to change course the close call was over

100% Ben will give hard time .... damn near kicked me in the ass to fly the pylon race..... i was super nervous.... the magical thing about him is if he is pushing you to fly beyond your comfort level, he is always there telling you " I think I know a guy that can help you get another plane"

fact is you want to step up to the line and say "help me out here" and he is the first guy to do it... same goes with Arron.... all the guys are helpful and are looking out for you.

I promise you that when you have to leave this event you will have a hole in your heart and you will be counting the days till the next one.... I am so geeked up for this....what fun

ooooffff..... just took the hit and joined the A9 family......sure hope it arrives in time....

question for Arron and Nick.... are you guys using the included NiMH battery or have you switched over to the 2S Lipo?

if you are on the NiMH how long are you getting out of that battery?

Congrats, how many rx's did you order?

I am using the NiMH and I charge about every other time I fly, just to be safe, but I am sure it could go longer. However, I don't fly much anymore. I can say it was much better than the Spektrum stock pack though.

Just show her Spektrum's new logo. You are protecting your investment.
