Today's forecast calls for cloudy with showers. This morning just as the last lipos were charging up, Mother Nature laid down a shower. Regardless, the brave stalwart pilot if off to the field to attend the "Sunday Morning Meeting of Crazy People". I am armed with 8 6S lipos and 6 3S lipos. Hoping that the quad and the heli will see the air.


HEY HC! HAPPY FIRST FATHER'S DAY!!!!!

Glad I decided to go to the field today. It seems it was raining everywhere EXCEPT the field. Only a handful of folks were there. I had the entire field to myself for about an hour which was very cool. During the day, I blew off 14 lipos. Eight in the 550 and six in the quad. A very good day.

You guys are getting too quiet around here again. This morning I'm off to the field again. I finally got my GPS unit from DJI. I've got it hooked to my Naza in my Gaui 330X. I need some wide open spaces to test it all out. If I am real lucky, I should have my DJI Flame Wheel F450 ARF quad by this time next week. It is a little bigger platform that should give me more room to mount stuff.

So if it gets out of range and the GPS lands it in my bacyard do I get to keep it?

I'm just about to leave for a Sunday 9am appointment to get my wisdom teeth out...boo! Got out my 5th scale Gasser the other day, my piper cub, super cub and my big or I. It's been a lovely week, nice and hot, went out to some lakes with the kayak and baby and my wife.

Lol damn straight

I wanna sniff before the dog gets in there

I think a Align 450 flybarless v2 pro super combo may be in my hands this summer; when i can afford it anyways

Only heli i have right now is a mini scout cx coax heli.

If i want to stay with helis its time to get serious and concentrate on one only lol.

Ive been down sizing on models big time. Selling off what i dont need.

Been scratch building as well.

I am to start a review for Dynamic Foamie for there 820 3D EPP plane.
Just got kit yesterday; start buiilding soon.

I built a rcfoamfighters F22 that flies awesome

And am working on making a ply firewall for funcub as stock mounting system sucks and induces a lot of vibrations.

Ite been busy lol
