Thanks bnick! I will be sure to tell him that. He's a great guy and very kind to offer his camera for me. We are having a lot of fun filming/editing together.

Here's my second video...The final flight...This one is just me and my keychain cam, facing backwards...I like it!

I flew all day today with a whole bunch of buddies down here in Portland and we had a perfectly calm blue day for our 3D birds and CP Heli's and no one crashed which always makes for a good day...

Have a great weekend...

Thanks for the nice compliment, I am Wayne, and I am just using a sony cybershot camera to film his flights. I do what I can to keep camera zoomed in on the model, and trying to keep model in frame can be tough when you're looking on the small view screen. But Aros does a great job with the editing as well, he edits the bad spots out of the ground footage with the in flight video footage, so it really looks good when it's all together. I would love to get one of those SLR digital cameras, would make it so much easier for filming the flights.

Thanks again for the compliment.

Nice landing from what I can tell. I can't seem to get her to track straight after touchdown like u did. As soon as she gets all 3 wheels down she doing a 180* and then stopping. I'd say about 75% of the time thats what's happening. Wonder if I need to try and keep the tail up a lil after touchdown...?

That was a bit of luck. Watch closely and you will see that I nearly tipped her on her nose. I was able to pull up elevator and switch to high rates right when she almost nosed over which allowed me max elevator to crank that nose high and saved the landing. Like the F/A-18 advice you gave me, I don't have a ton of rudder so she tracks pretty straight on landing.

Very nice! Love the red-tail. It's so great having a Mustang ARF with a 4-blader. You can see it's a 4 blade prop in every one of your pics except the first and it makes such a difference!

Thank you and I agree, I love the 4-blade! I have always said that I would sacrifice top speed for the looks and sound of a 4-blade ANY day over a 2-blade.
