Its the camera - not great quality and slow zoom - ie, dont use it cause its not fast enough

I would've done some speed runs BUT, needs new prop so it wasn't as impressive as it could've been

and yes

it is fun!

Hey Ryan, I agree it does look like you are having fun with your Stryker. That is one of the more durable airplanes I've seen. There have to be thousands of those things held together with duct tape, Gorilla glue and toothpicks. They are a tough plank. Also glad to see that you have graduated from running into basketball hoops. Now you are working on lamp standards. Progress is good.

I decide to get into a bit of "night flying" yesterday. My backyard is pretty protected from the wind and it was a quiet night. I pulled out my orginal bird, the mcx. It was dark enough that about the only thing that could be seen was the light in the nose. Beleive it or not, this was the first time I had ever really flown it hard around the backyard. I just sat back in the chair and let it do its thing for four lipos. I figured it could give the night bugs something to ponder about. I checked out the blades afterwards and unfortunately there was not one bit of bug goo.

That plank has some nice lines. So how many airworthy aircraft do you have these day, Raz? I'm still holding steady at six and hoping to make that number seven by September.

Compared to you guys, I'm going at a snails pace. Any faster and the only thing I'd acquire in Sept would be divorce papers

Mike.

Hi guys, just dropping in for a minute. The weather here has certainly curtailed my outdoor RC activity. The near 100 degree temeratures are bad enough, but it's really hard to swat mosquitoes and fly a heli at the same time; I need to grow another arm.

I have started to play with RC cars; I have a vintage RC10 and a Traxxas Stampede 4 x 4. RC electronics for cars have certainly changed since I last tried it about 30 years ago. It's a lot more fun now. I'm disappointed by the general lack of posting in the various car forums, here and at other sites. Some other sites I thought would be good for discussing RC cars turned out to be a waste of time, due to excessive paranoia. One site takes over a week to approve your registration and at another, a moderator must approve your posts. Neither are good ways to attract traffic.
