Dang, you have some nice toys...I'm jealous...lol.
We clocked them with a Garmin GPS strapped to them with zip ties. It's a hikers gps, not the in car Garmin style ones.

Yeah, lost to a 5th 2 stroke motor, (not even nitro), hpi baja 5b. I'm happy that my 6th scale slash even got second, can' believe it. I thought my backslash 4x4 with a 4cell and 8th scale motor combo was going to win the whole thing but I was wrong

That Esky bird looks interesting. Of course it boils down to cost of all of those little things that are NOT included in the kit. Acquisition delay for my Align 550E is now measured in mere hours....

You know you could try your "best offer" and see if that works.

lol

no i need to save my money

i have some downed craft now

stryker ESC went last week, plane is okay, esc is not working - hopefully HH will replace and my AR6200 with satellite went week before and is getting sent away for repair/warranty work as its under warranty - was in T28, but it now has HK 6 ch RX which works for now.

i just got some xtreme upgrade parts for MCPX and blade 120 SR which I need to install and review.

i now have a new 50mm EDF - sabre ended up not being great, so the guts went from it to a Red Arrows T45 which flies great.

I also want to modify my champ to a 10 gram BL motor, huge tires, and some detailing ect lol.

also have a thrust vectoring project for a scratch build plank using the alum swash from blade cx3

fix 450, and or sell it

and i am sure there is more idiotic things I will feel the need to do lol.



have you guys seen or heard about the new Walkera Genius CP?

its a micro cp 6 axis or 3 axis flybarless 3d heli a bit smaller than MCPX but a lot more durable.

looks interesting despite the fact that i have always been iffy on walkera - but never owned one



also


john

apparently there is a new tail boom assembly for MCPX that has a new motor which prevents tail blow outs - ie - more powerful


if you can find one in stock somewhere, lol, pick one up

and please get me one too will ya lol


hope youre all well



rob


congrats on speed runs

Hey Ryan! All I have heard about this type of thing is from folks who have simply made their own using the original motor and some longer cabon fibre tubing.

Raz, I just have to ask after looking at your "to do" list. Do you have anything airworthy at the moment? I thought that it was less than two weeks ago that you had all sorts of the things in the air. Fortunately, winter is fast approaching and you will have plenty of time.

My TRex 550E is getting closer and closer. I can almost smell it.
