I think I'm gonna dump my T-14 jet. It's alotta fun, but I'm liking the "Leaf Jets" (Delta wing) better, so I'll use the electronics from the T-14 to scratch-build an F-22 Raptor w/pusher-prop.


Old Luftwaffe Fred keeps crashing his T-14, so I'll give him the foam airframe.

Enjoy the warm weather. The East Bay Boys will be out there today in the SF Bay Area flying but it will be a bit colder then that and with 4+ mph winds

Cool vids indeed. Thanks for sharing. Hey Captn'...about that "mysterious sailplane." You do have your corncob pipe loaded with tobacco right

Okay, the weather lady lied!
It was windy and very cool! In the mid-50s, but it felt cold due to the moist air and wind combo.

But most of us flew anyway. It was fun. A few guys stayed grounded - chickens!!!

PS:
Anyone watching "Wicked Tuna" on National Geographic Channel? Those guys live and are based in my home town in Massachusetts. It's weird to see the old town on TV!

Yes! +1 all the vids are great shares. I don't know why but I like Steam Punk art. I wouldn't display it in my living room but would in my den. It reminded me of this movie called "9" it was something different and nothing like "Monster's Inc" or "Toy Story".

I would buy this video for my iPad if I could find it... still looking. I'd take it with the right music (It's good too) but would actually prefer the hacked music version.

Here is the making of "Eye of the Storm"

Nice video's Blu
Loved the "tink" when they hit I hit one of those posts with my Carbon Cub and yes, it left a mark At least now all the goal posts are stored away at our park.

I got out late today and the wind was up. Just a couple of Assassin flights was all I got in but shot some AV chasing a Popwing. got real close a couple times since I was trying to hit it The video is going to be a challenge to edit for me. I'll see what I can do with it or it will just be a shaky mess. Time to look into some slo-mo effects. Maybe I will get something up this weekend.

Haha that was some crazy Assassin footage. Like that swedish guy from Flitetest says "It aint fun unless you leave the field in pieces".

The Rarebear was screamin awesome too. For some reason I thought those nano racers were smaller

What a way to start a sunday. Thanks for sharing

Ahoy pilots! Thanks for all the nice comments on the AWOLNation Videos. I'm glad to here they were not tooooo far off topic.

DropTank... Those were greeaaat videos! I want that jet! Oh, I'm going to need that pilot too. Does the pilot come with the plane? Like a RTF? haaaa

Whirlcap... AWOLNation, This song was on his pop wing video on the pop wing thread by n00ner420 recently, and a special thanks to him for putting the video up. I googled it up and found these two videos. I didn't click on the "Eye Of The Storm" one. Glad you posted it. Pretty cool if ya ask me! I'm always looking for new songs for my Mp3 player. Wish all the guys would give credit to the artist and song name in there videos. I hate to ask, and I think it's the right thing to do if you use it. I'm going to buy a cd of one of these versions, I just don't know which one I like better. I like them all.

Blu... Very funny video, Looks like you got those assassin's dialed in! They look to be very fast. Now, if we could get better pilots! haaaa Nice fly'n. Oh, looks like that was a close one on the maiden launch of the rare bear. Good thing the pilot didn't eject! Thanks for sharing.

mac... Watching the Rolex 24, thinking about all that warm weather ya got there...you're lucky.

Nothing new here, same o same o. Snow Snow Snow, temp in the 20's. Happy fly'n and keep them videos a coming! Capt'n
