What 3 planes are you talking about? Your micro P-51 and your Super Cub should already both be in the Spektrum family, you just need to bind them to the same tx. I don't know what the 3rd plane is that you are talking about.

I'm gonna head up there about 5:30 or 6:00 to squeeze in a little flying. Don't know about the cricket guys.

Well, they are here right now. And so am I, apparently!

But heck, I could use the nap while waiting to see if their match wraps up by 5.

Few pictures from Pegasus RC Club. Just getting started on Friday and getting everything in place.

Very nice field.

I enjoyed myself. Still wasn't happy with the way the 100cc was running, but I have since got it worked out. I will see next outing if it's actually working like I want it to.

It was good seeing folks out flying. I think we may have made a new flying frined with your potential client. Good to see Salam and David. Wish that CCRCC field was a little smoother, it would have taken all of the negative aspect away.

Chris and his 3D

Here's some break time 3D flying by Chris (100cc AJ Slick). Shot on my iPhone. Couldn't get to my iPad quick enough.

The announcer asked how low he could go so he drug the rudder on the ground.

3D Break (6 min 55 sec)

Nice vid, I have got a long long long ways to get anywhere close to that lol if ever.
The polecat was disappointing, had it set at 50/80 for the low/high everything tested good on the ground, took off it was doing OK, then the tail acted up, and locked up, nose piling it into the ground. Chipped one of the linear servo's teeth, some light looking damage to the foam, cut the motor before she hit so that is OK, props good, gearbox is good. Just debating how I want to go about this now....
Well got some time to think about it, I will let you all know what I decide to do.
Did get the skysurfer up, not enough space where I was at for the 2m, and had a blast with it, the wind about 200 foot up was great, I was able to just float her there for a while without the motor, sent her up to a speck, enough that the wife and kids lots track of it :-)
So all and all a good day after work, at least I got to fly some. Now to burn a couple of solo pro batts and call it a night, 4 am gets here quick.

Very enjoyable day. Despite the clouds I look like I spent a day at the beach.

All planes home in the same condition they left home this morning in. I could overlook the bumpiness of the field because we were the only ones there until about 1:00. It was like a private club.

I and my landing gear are looking forward to a heli free FARCC, next weekend though.

Andy's fleet is choice.
