Sweet!

But according to the Mayan calendar isn't the Earth supposed to end on Dec. 21st?

I'd buy everthing 3DHS has if I could build and fly it before the end of the world.

I wouldn't even have to worry about paying for it.

Yup... I saw that!!

And glad to see that you guys made it home ok....Great job on being ambassadors of good will for our country!!!

I'm curious, was the "wafer board" box the crate it was shipped in, or the Prince's building table?

And what caused the guy to go "splat"? And was he badly injured? I hope not!!

The Crate was what I built to ship it in. 8' x 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. Big Box.

Splat was caused by a millisecond oops on when to pull up. Not sure how bad, he was carted off. Never heard from again.

Certainly was a big box.

So...were all of the planes in that hangar the Prince's or did some of them belong to his friends? It seemed like a lot of them were the same planes... And does he build his own planes or are they built for him? I would assume he has the money to have them built....
And...has the A380 airliner been flown? That was one darn big plane!!

I think the planes are all his. The Short guy in the hanger photo is the Princes RC guy. He does all the building for the Prince. His name is Joseph, believe it or not. They have a big indoor facility that they fly in during the summer because its 125 outside. He also does Helis. Yep said they have 4 flights on it so far. Still tweaking it in he said.
