Bakkie,
I`m battling to build one properly, never mind "6".
I flew the Maiden today but had aileron servo hassles.
Back to the workshop.
Gerald flew his today and it was perfect until he and Morne had a midair, one of
quite a few others today. Sean will be sure to load up the details.
Morne and Sean`s plane were caught in love grip that just wouldn`t let go.

Well done on the color scheme.

Note to self... avoid flying with the PE flyers at all costs... or fly one of Sean's planes!

Sorry to hear about getting taken out on maiden.
You did a really nice job on your color scheme.

I've learned to never go to the field with just one. Your next one will look even better.

The sad thing is....
We don't even try to fly combat!

Perhaps it's all this manly slope bonding!
