Arron, I just noticed your new tag line. That is hilarious "circle-flyer/3D hybrid..."

I figure Sam will be 23 - 24, almost out of college, and running the Pro circuit. doing his inverted style of flying.

The AR7000 finally started talking to the Vyper..... I sure as hell hope it doesn't take that long to reconnect after a brown out.....

Nothing like 6S Sparks on a topped off battery in a dark room

work has been a bastard ....finally got a second to chuck in all the servos.... real race to see if this thing is ready for Sunday based on the work calendar

going to make it happen though.....

I have a few maintenance issues on one of my 70" slicks myself. I shook a lock nut loose on the landing gear. I have to figure out how to get it back in there and on the landing gear bolt without poking any holes in the covering.

I may also strengthen the motor mount.
