A round of Limited Spec Offshore. I'm really not sure of who was running in this one. Too many green Geico's.

I had to play with the quad just a little today so used it to shoot Ray and Larry in a P Hydro (rigger) vs P Sport Hydro run. At full screen it looks pretty good on my local computer.

Not exactly a boat but still a triumphant moment for me.
After sitting since the 1st time I flew it in February of 2009 I finally "grew a pair" and put this one back in the air today. Having so much money wrapped up in it made me a nervous wreck every time I thought about flying it. But, after a couple years of trying to sell it without having to ship it and lowering the selling price a few times.... decided that if I bought it for what I was selling it for it wasn't that expensive. It's actually a good flying plane. With exception to the landing I couldn't ask for better.

A nice flying plane indeed, Bill. Certainly one to be proud of. The narrow undercarriage can always cause a bit of a hiccup on the landing.
Nice videos of the boats too.

Thanks Paul. Glad to see you're still surfing the forums on occasion. Haven't seen you on here in a bit. The slight crosswind didn't help matters a lot either. The wind was coming from the front and left of the plane so it helped blow it over.
I really thought I had that landing "greased" right up until it touched down and tipped.

That's a Schubler (spelling questionable) DS94. Roughly, 127mm. It's one of those high dollar, German made, all carbon fiber units. It seems to perform well though. It pushes that big turbine airframe with no real issues. I doubt it ws at peak efficeincy today with the packs that were in it. I've been running them in 6s 2p mode in my Q boat for a couple of years now. Today they were run as 12s 1p.

I have a cheapie 100 mm unit in my old scratch built delta that sounds pretty good too. Think I paid about 20 bucks for the fan (then spent hours balancing the impeller) and running a Scorpion 3026/1400kv on 8s.

It was really foggy in this area early this morning. Water conditions at Ackerman were in one of those "rare moment" stages though. We don't see water that flat at Ackerman very often.

1st up Ray's DF Cyber Storm 33 while it was still in foggy conditions.

We had a visitor from the other side of the state (Ft Lauderdale) today. This Chris rode over to pick up my old Proboat Llumar hull and brought along his P sport Phil Thomas hydro.
