Look at the color. It's incredible. The sun is not an issue. It looks just like it should when you are looking at it. This is one incredible camera.

Very nice quality. You almost shot the first GoPro combat video though!

I've got one of those... and I like it :-) Does pretty well in average 5mph lift at Misty Ridge: it slermals ok, turns on it's tail, but does roll like a floater. Haven't tried the mini high start yet and probably won't bother: this ain't really a thermal ship... L/D is nowhere close to my DLG. Might try the tow hook sometime if I ever make it over to Kite Hill and can bum a launch from one of the electric guys...

The AS3X gyro stabilizers are off until you pump the throttle. They actually do a decent job and give a much smoother control feel, but are not absolutely necessary for decent flying. When on, lift-indication suffers, but you can drop behind the ridge for a little DS pump and it cuts through the turbulence pretty well.

All that said, it's kinda fun yanking it around at close quarters on a small strip of the slope, then mixing it up with a bit of thermal hunting. Or, just some relaxing, lazy flying around.

Definitely a keeper!

Surgery is in your future.

It is a common issue with RCRCM planes. Think they would have learned from their mistakes after making thousands of them...

Holy cow! Has anybody seen the forecast for Friday?!?

25mph West all day long!


Of course, Windfinder sucks and it will probably end up being 5mph East.

It's only binding where the elevators meet the fuse. Looks like I can polish it down. There's no internal binding.

I'm almost done with the FB but I'm stuck at how to hook up the tail hardware. A picture of yours would definitely help. I have the ball links in the push rods and the two angled bars and screws, that's it. Maybe something is missing?
