Jetinteriorguy- did you find out if you can come to the fly-in?
Unfortunately I have to work, I have to address some last minute issues in a Cessna Citation that's supposed to leave for Brazil tomorrow. Our avionics install has been a massive headache and I can't finish the cockpit until they are finished, so I have to be there to finish when they get done. Hopefully I'll get done early enough to at least get some local flying done.

Same here! I'm 17 going into my senior year, so hopefully college girls will be a more feasible prospect.

HA, very funny. I'l be 19 on the 13t of August. I'll also be going on my second year of college (technically my fourth semester since I am taking a summer right now). If you go to a technical school, then it only gets worse.

I'm going pre-med, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Back on topic, I've been drooling over the crack pitts. It's so floaty, even compared to the slick! Too bad the power combos are already out of stock.

I heard power combos should be back in stock end of the week. A few posts back someone had mentioned it I think.

eS is waiting on reciever to show up so I can make sure all my servos work before putting them in. Sould be here tomorrow. Get quite a bit done on it tonight. Wings on, spar in , horizontal stab attached, servo arms and control arms all built. Solid be able to finish it up in no time once all the gear is tested.

Hey fellas, while we are an the subject of power systems, what other motors are people running on the 39" planes beside the one from the combo? I'm currently running a DualSky XM450ES, but it is getting a little warm with a 10x4.7 on it, so I'm thinking about swapping it out. I don't have any particular preference, I'm just curious as to what other people are using and what success they have had.

Who knows where you can get an adapter for the balance tap for Twisted Hobbys batteries when using a Thunder Power 610C charger? Thunder Power batteries cost almost twice as much!

Also...what is the max (safe) C rating the Twisted Hobbys batteries can be charged?

Hobby King has adapters to and from TPs. Here are some for 3S:

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=9733

http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idProduct=9921

Others do, too. Here's a set for 2S through 5S:

http://www.graysonhobby.com/catalog/...thx-p-527.html

Max charging rate for TH batteries? I'm not sure about the official number, but I routinely charge them at 2C - 3C.

ES is almost built. Just waiting on stuff to dry. All that is left is to mount control rods, esc, reciever and motor. Hoping to get it all mounted before calling it a night. Hehe.

Not soon enough! I'm really hoping they're up before the shipping date, which is sometime next month. (not really that long of a wait, but still quite painful)

I'm waitingggg, twisted hobbys!!
