trespassing onto the adjoining property to fly off the abandoned airstrip is fun


...almost hosed my 46 Vyper (cartwheel) and 330SC (couple of pancakes) over there. Both still in fighting form (save for a few spots that need a touch of CA). It's more fun flying in the wind here than the other field at the other house.

I found the hatcam in the boxes today, will get a vid at some point. Should probably get permission to fly there before I think of inviting people around to stacks-on

Just saw the new SHP on the home page. Looks like I need to get a second job to pay for all these new planes!

Nah!! It is easier to ask for forgiveness, than to ask permission.

Just kidding. Better to get to know the new neighbors

pulled a real winner yesterday morning. I hit the rudder on landing. trying/learning to land like everyone else. it locked up the servo. i took it apart(took top off), no stripped gears.
Not sure why it wont move. going to LHS this morning hopefully we can figure something out. new servo? gear kit? I hate dealing with those guys. always seem like everyone bothers them.

Nicely done to save the current fleet from demise...... I hope the move in is going smoothly and the wife is happy with the new digs.....

man, just rolling in from a week of washington DC.... 645 AM - 1130 PM everyday straight through...we has a group of 17 students that actually behaved so we were able to see a ton..great trip but I am dead....

Wife vetoed to the Dubois trip so I am going to have to make it when there is access rights to the guerrilla field..... I am up for Stacks on the road since you were cool enough to make a road trip for us....

Yep count me in for the PA Stacks (dates and wife permitting)

Sounds like an awesome place to fly.
Dave I think you should just fly your current SHP like a mad man and beat it up and then move the gear over. Deciding to kill my SR is the best thing I ever did. It allowed me to break through to the next level. Plus I still have the SR somehow.

Jared's tail needs cleaning..... Arron would have been out there with the windex..

Now we have to have a raffle to decide who gets to clean Arron's 87 SHP tail in hover at Huckfest.... is that permissible during your freestyle routine as "showmanhip"?

either or I want a raffle ticket to windex the SHP in hover for sure

My Vyper is so damn close. I need to balance and tie down some wires. Oh and I just ordered some sweet graphics from BadBrad for it. They look just like mine.
