Ornis! Been flying my park hawk4 and my lazy hawk. I've been busy so I havn't made it out to the air field as much as I would like to have. I spent some time testing my planes which I'm glad I did as the motor broke loose on one of them, glad I caught it on the ground. THe j3 piper and the cessna float plane are ready. I flew the cessna float plane off the water two weeks ago but my lipo quit two minutes early so I landed in the middle of the lake. 20 mins later I got it back ok. Ground tests seem fine so it must have been the lipo.

Been getting out rc truckin' more than flying but it's closer than the air field and wind doesn't matter.......and it's heaps of fun!

I bought this and am waiting for it to arrive. Just looks so nice and scale. I couldn't beleive it was foam. I'm wondering if it's foam that is wrapped like a blasa.

^^Shipping ran me about $50 bucks but I ordered a few other little parts too.

I've got my eye on this, as soon as they are re-stocked.....BAM!! I'm pulling the plug on it. THe biggest I have is 60" wingspans.

DUDE, you have to be kidding me. All you need is your pilot's lisense, sit in it and take it up yourself

I hope the wait is not too long. That would be excruciating

Have you heard? My plane can do 100mph

Finally!!!!!!!!

I got a big time double whammy today. Today was the first day back in the soccer field. Man, it was strange getting used to that "big air" perspective after buzzing around the driveway all Fall, Winter and Spring. Second whammy was, wait for it...................I heard the first ice cream truck!! That means that summer is finally, finally here

Hey HC, I thought you flying field was right across the street from you. What is that place with that huge static model that you were flying in last summer?

That's a little spot where I sometimes fly but I can't fly my big guys there. Also, in the summer, it gets marshy there so a crash equals up to your waist in stink water to retrieve it........no thanks

I thought you'd get a kick out of it. I think it's from an RC training vid for AMA newcomers. I forget where I picked it up. BUT, my plane can do 100mph

July is off to a great start out here on the west coast. Lots of great flying weather so far. So who is in the air doing what with what?

Ryan did you ever get around to launching that rocket?

HC, have you got your float plane thing working for you yet?
