I saw on the news they are saying this is going to be another above average fall-winter.

I'll take the nice fall. We had way to little snow this year and we've been paying for it this year. While I enjoyed flying off the pavement in mid January in just a sweatshirt I would not mind having to fire up the snowblower this year if it helps lower the drought issues next year.

But why are we talking about snow?!?! It's still 6 months till Christmas!

Been meaning to post this. I had some plastic (PTEG) SFG's laser cut at a local hacker/maker space:


The SVG file from inkscape is attached. You can use that to make an EPS or whatever you need. I had to add the .txt extension to get around RCGroups stupid upload policy. Just save the file and remove the extra .txt extension. This design fits ok. I put a stock SFG on a flat bed scanner and then traced the resulting high res image in Inkscape. I got the airfoil shape and fit just right but the tabs could be tweaked a bit to improve fitment. I had to do a little bit of sanding to get everything in place. Also you have to drill your own holes but that way there are no alignment issues with your individual airframe.

These SFGs are somewhat smaller than stock but they perform great with my 3S setup and they have proven to be bomb proof. I crashed the yak today, broke the landing gear in 2 places and broke off the motor box. No damage to the SFGs or wings!

Got 5 flights in last evening.

Best of 4 vids... Did not fly to the track, added it after the fact but it matched up pretty good.

Trackless Flight 4 of 5.

Short takeoff, Short Landing, WOT runs with Tumbles, some low Hovering/Dancing. Then a dicey low HAKE pass that got too slow at the end.
Canopy was pulling in, had to break it out.

3DHS 46 YAK-55 STOL-N-SPEED (4 min 32 sec)

on my 4th set of landing gear - last one snapped when I crabbed a harrier landing on grass. 2 nd set of SFG's, and have burned out 2 5065mg's on the rudder. Now using savox 0255's. Proud of the fact that it is still in great shape. Love flying this plane like I stole it!
