Feels so good to go to a LHS fly-in, everyone has a WIldcat, I roll up, bust out the PZ P-47 Razorback! retracts, flaps and pulled off the best landings ever....Some dude about lost it....he couldn't believe it...My landings are the most important thing to me when flying I told him....And I finally got a snapshot of the Pacific jugs

On 8 June 2012 between 6.45am and 1.00 pm while I was at work some low life scum broke into my unit and stole the following items.

1 Spectrum DX 7 in metal case
3 Swallow chargers
12 Lipo batteries
1 watt meter
1 tachometer
1 set digital fishing scales

Can't go flying till I relace all these items.

Also stole my new TV, 10 Meter amatuer radio, frequency scanner and various other items.

Man that is really sad, you work hard, save some cash, buy a few things, work hard some more get a few more and this crooks just take it all without any remorse or nothing. This really makes me mad
For a moment I was thinking that you lived in my Island.

Sounds like he knew exactly what he was looking for. I'd start narrowing down the list of people you know locally who also fly RC, and know where you live. I bet you'll find the punkass and get your stuff back.

Either way, man that sucks!! Why do people do that crap?

Hey guys, just got my G15 950kv from hobbyking, and I've run some tests with two different props on 3s. With a master airscrew I got 33 amps static with around 350 watts, and with an APC 10x10 I got 38 amps,and 400 watts. about what I expected. The watt numbers are probably a little low, because I tested it with batteries at storage. Can't wait to fly with the new motor!

Jimmy, If you can fly that snizzlecat the P-47 will be a piece of cake once you are off the ground.

Calm days are just what the doctor ordered for maiden flights.
We flew in marginally too much wind yesterday and today.
Today I flew a clipped wing Spit due to getting flipped up on a landing yesterday... today I was a better pilot.
I smartly favored the P47 most of the day, She is better in the wind than most. I'm carrying a little extra weight which helps too. Keep us posted.
