Me neither. I'd say multiplayer RF is down for awhile, it will probably be up tomorrow.

I am wondering if the control board had somehow come off of the power board? This was the culprit in the case of my ICE HV-160/

I need to find out what the inside dimensions are since some that list 8' actually are 8' + a few spare inches depending on the trailer and hoping deflecting the rudder all the way could shave off a few inches.

does it not have a removable rudder? you could also take off the prop and spinner.

As I new I wasn't going to be able to fly it back, I chopped the throttle and pulled up full up elevator.

My buddy and I got in my Chevy HHR, and after asking the people that run the orchard if we could go look, we went up and down the rows. Now, we have had a lot of rain lately, and I was basically "4-wheeling" it. But.....low and behold my buddy yells Stop!!! back up!!.....and I did...and there it was about four rows over... Of course, I figured the worse....My Buddy jumps out and heads towards the plane, and says...Oh My God...It doesn't have a scratch on it!!!! There was a little smear of mud on the left wing tips, one little bit on the upper right, and a little on the spinner...other than that, it is perfect!!!!! The picture of it sitting in the orchard is exactly where it was when he found it, and we got to it!!! The trees in the rows are only about 15 feet apart, so I have no idea how it came down without hitting a branch....

So...it's definitely a free plane!!!!

Well Steve, that proves it. It's gonna' be a GREAT year!
