I went over yesterday and flew some more at Powers Crossroads RC strip. The winds were practically at zero so it was a good time. There were about 6 other people out there flying, I had met most of them before so we had a good time.

I am excited about the next time we can get together at the Pecan Patch. The Extra 300 is ready to go again. I also strengthened the tail wheel so it should work out much better. I want to get a good check flight on it from Mark and then get some stick time.

The Falcon got a new propeller on it and I think I found out why it went dead stick on me. When I went from idle to full throttle quickly it had a bad hesitation. Thinking maybe it coughed and died when I increased power during takeoff climbout. I adjusted the low end and now it is nice and smooth from idle to full throttle.

Let's go flying!

Trying to patch up the 1/4 scale Geobat.
She hasnt flown since new years day when I bent the crap out of the nose gear. It's a home brew gear with spring loaded strut.

You can see the bent 3/8 diameter rod on the bench..... I just got to cut a new one of those and instal it.....

Maybe I can fly it Sunday if all goes well today with it.

Geo Bat 1/4 scale

Mark,
Hope all goes well with the big GeoBat flight for the investors, one always wants to make a good showing.
That's a different one in the pic isn't it? I thought the biggie was grey in color, this must be another biggie bat I haven't seen before.
Pics of the event sure would be nice.

John, the Extra should be able to do just about anything. The only limitation it has is the owner.

I have flown it twice? and I loved the rudder repsonse on it..........

Powerfull as hell, but predictable too.
I was doing 360 stall turns with it.

True IMAC guys have different flight modes for normal flying and 3D flying.
So far I missed that day at school.
