I'm sure you guys will probably get a fair amount of wind/rain from this storm once it gets up that way.

Glad you enjoyed the Outer Banks - it really is an amazing place!

I've been to Mystic, CT before... loved that place too. Very quaint!

I know somebody. Local guy who owns a hobby store, he mentioned that they got a few in and I had him hold one for me. He said they're selling out as fast as he can get them in.

So you do exactly like me? Your son will be 2 years old, but you still buy him a Beast even if you wife think he is too young? (and you plan to fly it until he's older

Flew my beast today for the first time, and I'm lovin' it! Unfortunately, The prop didn't last very long, but that was the only damage from my "flying skills", so I think it was a success!

Well rushed out between storms to give a couple batteries their first cycles but ended up getting wet. I recorded the flight so I figured I would post it up. Testing out a new runway which is bumpy but I think it will work. The takeoff was not pretty and I ended up with a shabby landing but the rain was picking up pretty good and I wasn't going around for another approach. Beast is tough she can take it. I really need to get back out flying this thing. Its so responsive compared to what I've been flying. I enjoy it though and just need a few more flights to get back into the groove. Control surfaces are all on the innermost hole and I have no idea what low rates are. recorded in 720p

Congrats. Told ya to get an extra prop and adapter I think you're set with an extra prop in the box, but make sure you get another adapter too.

Nice flying my friend. Beautiful death spiral that was quick and crazy.

You almost sunk it at 2:30 Nice recovery!

Sorry, as the pseudo FAA rep, I have to tell him he busted VFR flight regs twice by going up into the scud, so we have made a notation in his PERMANENT RECORD!




(nice flying, btw!)
