At least I got it to land in one piece after several saves... Next time, I'll follow the directions when I set up a new plane!!

This shot is of the winner of the takeoff contest, my brushless Slow Stick vs Woodies IC.... Electrics win again!!!

Cool. I wish I could have been there instead of working. But I have to pay for my habit one way or another.

Is Donnies F-16 pusher or DF? I can't tell by the pics. Donnie and Woody (and everyone for that matter) are welcome to come to the fly-in Magic Valley this Saturday. I'll be there somewhere, but they talked me into being field marshall for a couple of hours. We also have some really food prizes in the raffle too.

Oops, I meant good prizes, but there will be food, too.

Hopefully my Gee Bee and my Tiny X will be there. Might even have a Razor powered Corsair if the #@%^ thing will ever get here.

Nick

Good Morning Don, you know the Sukhoi doesn't look quite as bad in the picture. I guess I will have to hurry up and get the Cap 232 going.
