LOL ! I tough of adding some flower decals like the original Mystery machine in the comics, but after thinking about it, I think it would be a little too 70's (read girly).

I have a couple od SD earrings that I bought cheao on ebay so I could put one on the rearview mirror and maybe one as a crest on the rear of the truck. Thanks for your offer Polix

Congratulations !!! that's great looking machine !! I love the action figures and the way you presented the model with the dolls. the Scooby doo is the perfect size for it .
I bet it was weird going shopping for Ben and Barbie and making such demands as Ken must be blonde and wear disco gear
By the way, are those mirrors of optical quality or just for show ? I think you will need them

on a more serious note, I managed a flight with my friend Frank this weekend and we had a blast even despite the fact it was cold windy and muddy... the ground is so saturated with water after the thaw and rain that we will soon need flippers to walk...we keep on evolving here with our webbed feet

Roo vs Stryker (5 min 21 sec)


now.. I swear the video quality was much better than that I had to edit out a lot of "buzzing" or fizzing which I swear i did not see through my flight. I wonder if the video recorder is more sensitive than the glasses and it sees fizzing when I see a slight blurring ?

Thanks RCM ! I got the action figures on the net. Daphnee, Fred and 2 Scooby for 10 $. Mattel actually made Scooby doo Barbie dolls, so they are eady to find. But since they are collectors item, usually they are pretty expensive so I got lucky.

Looks like your Roo is a handfull to fly, or maybe it was you trying to keep his 6 ?

it was windy and difficult to keep behind him. his flying is erratic, always changing speed and heights and throwing in the surprise move. not having a pan and tilt on this plane makes the framing more difficult

Was he flying FPV ? It's amazing how flying from the cockpit makes you much more smooth on the sticks.

I received the smartieparts board, it's coming from canada so was fast. 9X is crawling its way it seems. Tracking # not in post system after a week

yes he was flying FPV. he always blames me for no flying steadily but my OSD figures prove I am not the erratic one. I reached over 100Kph on this flight

doing the conversion and loading the 9X software is easy enough. but don't forget to watch the tutorial videos http://9xforums.com/wiki/index.php/Video_guides if you want to understand how the software works. once you get the logic then the rest is a cinch

I forgot to answer that: They are convex mirrors used on real car mirrors. They have a very nice quality. They will be very usefull to watch that kid that wants to pick my truck everytime I pass by him. Want to add a sail servo too so I can have a 360 view like Wobby.

Maybe also have a remotely triggered stink bomb so you can pop it if he tries to grab the jeep

Man I feel for you guys up north. It rained a little bit saturday which made it un flyable, then sunday I burned 5 tanks of petrol between the baja 5t and a bergen gasser, then another tank of nitro in the raptor 30.

Guess I have finishing fear with the 550. I have it ready to maiden sans some programing and I find myself flying-driving what is ready now...

rotorshake, you know that the snow doesn't stop me from flying. But this winter its even better, as I am driving my summit from the basement, comfy on the couch in front of the TV. Can't be better than that.

BTW, there seem to be a trend, meaning I have seen some posts about it, for people to install antennas on their roof. They install the UHF and antenna on the roof, with some tracking device so they can fly or drive FPV from the comfort of their home. Can't help but to think about doing the same.

I could start by installing the receiver and Dl in the attic so i could drive the truck all around the neighborhood. Not to sure about the flying part because there are lots of trees around the hosue, pretty tall also.
