In the spring of 2011 I got my first RC plane. A super cub of course. After flying it a few times I wanted to get some keychain cam video of the lake where I fly. The above video is my second attempt at getting video and it ended poorly I crashed and lost the camera.... Anyway, watch the video and enjoy.
Me no understand.
How could you have underwater video if the cam was lost?

Nice crash,not because you crashed but you were able to taxi the plane back!

That's something,camera falls of and a year later the file was still able to be read,cool!

No, no... I watched it, but there is a dumb pop-up ad that appears each time the part about your niece flashes.

Also, I was watching Fox and Kimberly Guilfoyle was sitting in the end chair in an extremely short skirt, but.... I tried, staley!

Hey Guys!

I wrote 2 articles for the magazine I'm working for!
The first one is about Piper Aircraft's "Piper Seneca V – Breast Cancer Awareness plane."
The 2nd is a 2-page spread about the Sebastian, FL Airmasters RC Club!
There are photos too!

Anyway, go to www.verosvoice.com and click on the link to our latest issue (with the marching band on the front). It's in a PDF format.
My Piper article is on Pg. 9 and the RC club article is on Pg 22.

One of the photos is a 120-inch wingspan Decathlon and the other is a 5-foot long F-15 Eagle fighter. Both flew very nicely!!


I'm very happy to have a great job with nice folks. Check it out if you have a few minutes.

Thanks!
Mac

Mac, congratulations! I can't wait to read your work I went to the site and clicked on the link. Is something wrong with the server? The download is quite slow. At one point I thought it was gonna stop. Anybody else have a problem? I'll give my machine a go over but, I have a custom built gaming PC with no games on it Scary fast

Mike.

Now I'm thinking biplane. Jim's 4s Nitroplanes biplane is so cool! Very well made, hot looking, and flies very well. He says it has good parts support too.

You guys back east hunker down and take it easy while we deal with all this sunshine. When I saw the snow on your beaches with wrecked houses all around I was saddened for those unfortunate souls. Good luck all.

Blu...

I think Mac mentioned, Breezy point, ny. Our hearts go deeply out with all the support in the world. No words to express. I used to belong to a club out there, called the silver Gull club? I used to bike ride out there. I remember walking from the beaches to the town out there, many , many years I and the family spent, and now just seeing the Aftermath of a Super storm. No words.

Yep I be up and at it tomorrow Flying, you bet with 60 degree weather, my friend, and Sunny. Snow, what snow? Maybe some cold and god's Dandruff, all cleared up.

Will get some footage with the Super Cub, and Champ.

Not long ago, I say under 2 months, a Tornado passed through the area, and left cars turned, and some damages, all up the coast from Breezy Point, to the far rockaways, and in/out of inland, seen for miles.

I hope you guys Down South get up and have a great flight. ENjoy the weekend ?

A perfect, sunny & cool morning here in FL! No wind either.
So, I was walking Jake out in the yard for his morning "business," when I remembered that I hadn't checked the mail.

My HeadsUpRC Power-Up 400 Zoom (2,200kv) motor showed-up!
No flying for me.
Spent the morning doing laundry in between repairs and motor replacement and...
The Bixler is BACK!

Tomorrow will be fly-day now... with the Bixler placed back in my arsenal of aircraft.

Oh, I almost forgot; the Stuart Air Show is today and tomorrow. I might have to go see if there are any T-28s there. I know they have an F4U Corsair and a P-51. Also an old Korean era Mig-15 (?)
Oh wait a sec.... $60 per ticket? Sheesh.
Can't afford THAT.

Awoke to a good morning to. Got up went out to fly, and the Super cub flew on its own, the TX decided to say I am too tired, and exhausted batteries? I just charged them, and I blame the repair of HH for breaking a part inside and charger port off? On the charger, as I type?

I had recovered the plane in one piece, lucky how it landed, and where it landed.

I came home to find a nitroplanes.com pkg at my door step.

Here is that video of my morning flight?

A wing Fishy? Welcome to the club! Since I got my wing, every trip to the park includes a wing flight and often, it's all I bring.

Thank you Whirlcap, will need advice with Tx part of mixing? I am deciding if I should get another orange, or use the spectrum rx? No rush. Yet this mini wing is a great size WOW! will show some pics later, doing a slow build.
