On another note, does anyone know this user? He's wanting to buy my 42", but I'd have to ship it to him. Gimp28

Remember....he's paying you, not you paying him....so...do PayPal, and don't ship until you get the money.....it's real simple....
If you were paying him, it would be a different thing.... Take pictures of the plane in the box, just before you seal it up.....no worries...
And lastly, ship it insured...

Yeah, if I don't find a local buyer, it's going to him.

Vid from last night of my (Historic) First Flips with my little battered, rebuilt and upgraded mCPX.

Left all but two blooper crashes in to show the durability after my mods. Did eventually bend a feathering spindle off a steep turn sideways crash.
Attempted a loop on the first crash, almost kept it under control, but it tried to hit me.

Got some fo real Flips multiple times. Tested with the white KBDD blades (bogging the motor in Stunt Mode) and Stock blades. Stock Flip tighter. Messed up thought and forgot to put my Pitch back to 75% on the Stock. Had the Positive jacked up to 100% to compensate for the KBDD's being on.

Might do a Brushless Conversion down the road to get some more Stunt power...

mCPX First Flips 7-29-2012 (6 min 30 sec)

Just because you get the money from PP doesn't mean he can't start a dispute in a few days. Not to mention the risk of damage during shipping that while you can say it is his risk again he can tie up the funds with a PP dispute.

Take your time and find someone local, it is the safest way to sell an airframe IMHO. I have bought shipped assembled airframes before but it is always a risk for both parties and I personally won't do it any more.

Cool shot.


Here's the best of 5 last night flying the 46 Yak. Did not fly to the track, added after the fact, but still matched up pretty good. Cannot get over how Fast the Yak can go with that big round cowl sucking air!

Motrolfly 2815-950 and a Xoar 13x6.5 on 3S 2200 30C, ZTW 50A.

Ah yes, it was a good day. Hot, humid and swampy, but good. I should have filmed more planes.

Don't forget that it is the "pretty" purple 100cc edge.

Full Throttle run, then jam Sticks to Top Inside Corners!

I only do that on 40 sized planes. Slicks, Vypers, Yak. Have Not done WOT on Edges due to the thick over-sized wing. I would get out of the throttle right before jamming, then get back on it.

Think I've done it on the 57 SC a few times, but again, would get off throttle for a second after a hot run, then once it's tumbling you can add some throttle back in.

I loved doing it on 42 Slicks, 47 SHP, the old 40 Edge and the 48 SV was fun on 4S. You can do them on reduced power Downlines too, kind of like a Negative Blender.
