No, I'm going to use the 10mw to start with. 150 feet around WiFi and houses is pretty good... I think that ReadyMadeRC is going to be sending me a new 500mw vTX, because evidently something's up with it.

Second last day of school!!! Mum is a principal and teacher of a small school(approx 20 odd kids) and she manged to, after letting her imagination get the better of her, get all the students (and most of the parents) genuinly beleive that she is a second cousin of the queen. (she is a pommy btw) any way the 'queen', 'prince charles' and his wife are all visiting tomorrow. Shes gotten them to all dress up and put on posh accents so it will be very interesting to see what happens.

I used to fly my mCX around school occasionally. People loved it.... Well, students loved it

I also had a few early-morning track practices this spring, so I brought an LED-equipped wing to fly in the dark on the football field before practice started. That was fun.

Never did any "official" type demos, though.

Our club occasionally does a demo and display. It's for a local elementary school at a nearby park. We had several simulators set up with RF G5, and some static display models.

Me and a friend did some profile 3D flying in the gym.

I enjoyed it. When somebody put one of their MCPX's up, one of the kids said "I have one of those!"

I'm doing a 3D flight for the Cub Scouts...since I'm the only one that flies 3D at my field, and the club members asked me because they thought the kids would get bored watching planes fly in circles

My 42 Slick guy just backed out on me, said there was more damage than he thought
He said he wouldn't feel comfortable selling it like that.........
I still offered to take it, no dirt on him if it breaks or whatever....
I guess we'll see what he says.
