Anyways, do anyone know (or can link me to) those little things that keep deans connectors together. I made the mistake of soldering some knock offs on to lipos and have geniune on my esc side so the connection is a little loose. I think there is something out there like a lock for servo extension connections. Thanks
Same.... Just sold my first 3DHS Plane My 42". I loved that plane, but selling it in my efforts to go 30CC.

Do it! The new 172s are freaking crazy good compared to what I learned to fly on. I mean the auto pilot would fly the approach all the way down to minimums.

That one goes for $155 an hr wet but they have a Sky Catcher for $99. If I keep flying I will drop down to the Sky Catcher to save some cash.

Been looping it for last 3 hrs. New Tornado Warning in County SE of FT Wayne and West of Lima. Muncie just got hit with a red cell and now a 2nd one...

At least the first line evaporated for us. Now will watch what this Mainline does.... See how far east it gets. Lots of people without power around Lima from the first line.

Our corn crop here is toast! Terrible!! Never seen it look this bad around here! It's really sick looking stalks and short. Bottom halves are already yellow brown, ears are dinky. Looks like Pilgrim's Corn...

So are you working on getting your license? Or do you have it? I'm working on my Recreational License at the moment... I'll get my private later.

My afternoon adventure in the heat and wind. At least the wind made it feel half decent out in that humidity.

Perfect 3pt inverted landing!

Something kinda cool happened today. Was doing an inverted elevator with my 72 when the throttle suddenly became unresponsive. The engine didn't die, but it was stuck at idle so I was unable to arrest its decent. It wound up plopping down in some tall grass with the wings perfectly level. By sheer luck the only damage is a minor crack in the cowl and a busted prop. The rudder, fin, canopy, and sfg's are all totally fine, despite the plane landing upside down. . I am happy about that!

If I'm honest, it looked kinda cool floating down to a soft landing... upside down. :what:

Later, we found out the throttle servo had died. Guess that's what I get for using an el cheapo throttle servo.:banghead:

Oh, and it was good to see all the addicts in Chattanooga today. Including two team pilots . No cmala sightings though
