OK so it isn't Arizona, but we can do a decent sunset in Louisiana. We'll see if the local TV uses this one. Also trying to get some pub to get the parish to help us with a field.

Self Adhesive and partially shrinkable with low heat. Stick over Ultracote. I have Red, Black, White, Yellow. Saved me quick lots of times, better than tape cause it covers the slit or hole with same color. I get at LHS that I go to. In Rolls.

hehe, I'm not sure what that means.. I'm a recent transplant from Houston you know.We do say yall a lot though.

Funny it was the last flight, I looked over and saw the sun, landed and had Scott grab the camera. Then tried to get the spot right. First picture was the winner!

And a happy ending, we did make the weather. Our names and all on the screen, and weather guy said "caught the plane in mid air". Close enough!!

Thanks!
Rob

Suweeet Rob! Thanks for sharing man.

My Mom used to live in Metairie. Always enjoyed the food and the Southern Hospitality. Nothing else like it.

My wife is from Metairie, her sister still lives there. Rob is only about 200 miles from there. Other side of the state, over near Lake Charles. Actually my house is closer to New Orleans than Rob is.

The 87 flies like a puppy dog. It is almost a trainer airplane if you want but it will do everything you throw at it.

After i got the 87 i pretty much stopped flying almost everything else

The 57 and 87 are currently my favorites. I havent flown the 47 in a long time but i think i remember it being very similar.

Will see when i finally get the 103 in the air how that compares.

87 makes a perfect giant scale trainer format. I got one for my first 50 cc and it did me very well. Forgiving forgiving forgiving. Then as you progress and get used to the size it will rock and roll!

P.s. flying characteristics are very similar from the small one to the 87, yes. To answer your question you have it right. Similar, but bigger. Things seem to happen at a bit slower pace with the bigger aircraft= smoother
