ChancesAU.......what a great video.....and what a great place to fly!

As far as laws.......even here, post 9/11 you would probably have a fleet of Black SUVs at your door step after a RC flight through a major city........

Thanks that spot was the 3rd choice, the other parks had people there
Yeah its pretty bad here too for stuff like that, as long as you dont buzz people and do silly stuff I dont see a problem, all common sense.

well first off sorry for muti posting this post, so if you have seen it in another thread again sorry about that

well i went to the indoor session last week that is held once a month here in Adelaide, there was a good turn out and i got some great footage of the new Pole Cat doing laps inside, also caught it in a mid air that your see later in the vid and it flew away with just a spinner missing, not sure what condition the other plane ended up

the reason i multi posted is there are so many micros there i'm sure people in other threads would like to see their UM, so theres the Pole Cat, a T-28,F4U Corsair,Mosquito, Sbach, Extra 300 3-d, a big profile drops off a P-51 it collected in the air, the Sbach flown like we haven't seen yet and indoors and many more planes too, so sit back and enjoy

cheers chuck

The stock battery isn't anything to brag about. On the other hand, I've flown Hyperions ranging from 160 to 240mah, and they perform GREAT!!

Haven't got any fridge magnet or magnetic business card stuff - will keep a lookout, though swapping the one magnet I have to the top works OK.
Get neodymium magnets. You can find them on Amazon if no where else. I have quite a selection in all sizes.

I fly with a 500mah Tenergy. I can fly for 15-20min easy. The little extra weight doesn't cause any problems either. I use the 240 hyp's also but shorter flying time.

Where do you get these bigger packs from?
I like the sound of the Tenergy 500s, my mozzie has so much tape on the tail now its upsetting the CoG so a heavier pack would be great!!

all-battery.com. look in the helicopter packs section. It has the jst and micro plug so if you have a Blade you can use it in that as well.

Scrap it?

After both motor gears have failed (from crashes), I've moved on to the UM Corsair, which I actually like better than the Mosquito.

So my used Mosquito is available for sale.

Weather is too good at the moment, took the mosquito down the beach, probably about 5knot winds?
Here's the vid
