I have been sitting here staring out my window for hours. A red tail hawk was just outside hunting for all this time. He finally got himself (or herself) some lunch. And sat on a tree limb eating it. What a sight. Nature can be brutaly beautifull some times. Was fun to watch.

China does'nt need to invade us, they're here already and own most of the western US and you guys in the east and midwest don't even know it. Wake up!

Here is an interesting story about what they are doing with RC planes in Alaska to study stuff like oil spills. What fun, and get paid to do it!!

Well, I'm wrong again.

CNN just reported that the US is saying the drone shown is real.

Here's what I dont get...They say they shot it down. We say it crashed.

Where's the damage? Could there be some "dis-information" goin' on here?

Lee,

Cool birds, man. We've got Ospreys and Eagles down here. So effin' wonderful.

Olthump...


I didn't know we have been able to screw with their computers, causing the thousands of uranium refining centrifuges they have to overspeed and be destroyed.

If we can do that...then maybe someone else could have done something like that to us,like taking over a spy plane.

It looks like there could be some damage just under the right le,it looks a little concave or maybe it's just the shadow.


Like you say we time will tell.

I guess till i see a us govt official say "yes,they have our drone" we can't really trust the "news".

Remember the miners in West Virginia....Anderson Cooper of CNN was reporting on the event all night long.....he reported that the miners were all alive,and then had to take back what he said.

Got in 2 flights with the Cessna this evening.
Flew pretty good... it's no fighter plane, but flew extremely scale like. Pretty fast for what it is. Probably 40mph. I've got some meaner props coming so that should give it a little boost.
On to the awesome part. The landings... It was a thing of beauty. Flaps brought it in so smooth and slow it was unbelievable. Lands better than any plane I've flown. Take offs were short with a little flaps also.
Pretty happy with it I guess... I'll be happier when it's a full time float plane.

Hey Ridge,
I seen a while back you posted about adding flaps to the SC. I read over in the thread about this Cessna that someone had put the Cessna's wing on the SC.. and it worked great. They have the same wingspan. Instant flaps and ailerons. I think u can get the wing for $30ish. Oh.. and has lights already installed in it. Might be worth checking into.

Seems our buddy RC_noob may have a little problem in the trader talk section.
Sold some stuff (DX8) for a "friend". Now he has disappeared... Doesn't look good. Hopefully it's just a misunderstanding.. Kinda odd if you ask me.. Seemed like an alright guy.

Sold a DX8, a DX9, and some other stuff... this doesn't look good.
DX9 was for someones twin girls for christmas... now that makes me mad... real mad.


Anyone remember his real name or location?

The plot thickens on RC noob

You'd think with a decent trader rating, it'd be a little safer, but not any more apparently.

The picture in the DX8 ad is from here:

http://www.raptortechnique.com/spektrumdx8.html

In one of his sale ads, he (in Indiana?) was selling an MCPX for his "buddy":

Pix taken from a guy in Michigan. This his buddy?

Maybe his "buddies" are those who is buying from, and reselling here?

Another for my ignore list...

Awesome bro!
Crap like this really hits a nerve with me... We need to bring the house down on him.
And if he stole some little kids christmas... someone needs to hop a plane and go whoop some ass. Point that.
