Great day for a Wedge Jr. Solo of his SHP....

Joined Twister for some morning flights and decided it was the day to cut the cord and let Wedge Jr. fly his SHP solo....

He had three great flights and landings... first take offs with the plane since I used to do those.....

The SHP is an awesome plane.... we had some good wind and it just tracks well.. Sam mixed in the 3D he has been studying since he took my Stoops book and Bob will tell you that he probably flew 3/4 of the flight inverted

he had a blast. My camera kept trying to "autofocus" and blurred the whole solo film..... I ran it through Quicktime and pulled some snag it shots

Nice flying Sam

That was the coolest event I saw today.... Cicada Killer chasing down a Cicada in mid air.,... the cicada slams into the side of Bob's new car (very audible thump) and falls to the ground..... Cicada Killer Wasp moves in to finish off the stunned prey and stings it several times..... once done, it packages the cicada up so wings sweep back (in the picture) , picks it up and flies away

very cool

HOLY BUCKETS!!!!!!
I hope he gets used to flying that 87" before Huckfest
If I wore a hat. it would be off to you Arron.
I lost it when you brought that baby in close and you tapped my monitor with the tail of that plane. I swear I saw my screen move. might have to meet Kieth on thursday for king 50 qualifying.

sweet shots....makes me smile

what has really got me pissed is that I just dropped my radio about 3 feet right on the antenna

big crack in the shroud but that looks like all the damage.... don't think I snapped a cable or anything.... Now another reason for me to have faith in my Spektrum
