I could nail the maneuver every time with the 74 Edge on which I was practicing it, but the 104 was hitting it with more energy and was harder to control the exit... first attempt came out right, the second obviously not so much. Slapping the ground took the rudder and the fin off, and the result was a little too random to handle... was looking like I was getting it back, but then the rudder shifted against the new neutral. Anyways, thank goodness for motorbox kits, the break in the fuselage is just in front of the wing spar, which pretty much is taken care of by a new motorbox... she'll fly again soon, no fear.

It was really awesome to hang out with everyone and meet up with the fanatics again... special shout out to sk8rob for rock'n all the way from Hawaii...

can't wait till next time, that is for sure.
congrats on your 1 trick win and good to see ya. Kudos to you for making that kids day with the plane you gave him. I had watched that lil dude friday and saturday with his buds flying at the electric line and down there at 3d and he is a star in the making..

All the Nall pics and vids are awesome! Anthony and I watched the One Trick 104 from the field yesterday multiple times. Very violent, lots of energy going in. Thought it was going in the water. Good save on the rushed landing!.

If your canopy is not damaged - I'll buy it if you want to sell it??

Here's Flight 10 on my new 71 Slick tonight at the JVS. Had some solo time with nobody to bug me but the bugs.

Heard this trac awhile back and thought it was appropriate for the Slick Schemes.

Not Nall quality, but just a vid from back home in the sticks!

Ha! Ironic, my canopy is cracked at the top from a previous crash that just cracked the inside of the fuse in some spots , but then when I nose it in at almost full throttle nothing happens to the canopy but just the fuse goes in half.

But I am gonna repair it anyway.

skarface-

Sounds good - I also had an "incident" with my 71 recently and I was going to trash it - stared at it for two weeks then over a rainy weekend it was like new again!

I taped the canopy for now - Noll is out of stock - I'll wait for the next container.

Thanks for getting back right away!

I flew a pack while i was out with the fam watching the eclipse. My dad had a welder mask he was passing around you could look through to look at the sun. When it was pretty much fully covered everything was this weird grey tint like you get when the sun is going down soon before the oranges and reds start really showing, but it was around 6 and the sun was high in the sky. It was messing with my senses. It was like someone was turning the color down.

That was yesterday? It wasent visible from pa, I never got to see an eclipse like that.

Actually it was cloudy all day yesterday here since 3pm, eclipse still would not have been visible from here.
