I didn't say I was gonna learn in the forest...
I plane on keeping it low to the ground at my RC field, at least to start. Probably just stick ezerything on my PZ corsair and fly that for a while. Once I know what I am doing, I will move to a more dedicated fpv plane, and then on to the tricopter. And I am then, after much practice at the field, fly the tricopter, and only the tricopter, in my neiborhood, which is in a forest. It isn't so much of a neiborhood as it is two dirt roads and a few houses. I will fly down the roads and between trees. As for my dedicated FPV plane, I will launch and land it from the main street in the neiborhood, which is wide enough for the trees to not block the plane on the way up.I will only fly over the trees with the airplane, not between them.
I do plan on getteing a HAM license before I do any flying as well.

Alright sounds great! But FWIW you won't be getting good reception at all around your neighborhood...

whew Im tired now.....
I decided to fly my tricopter around the nieborhood. However, the niebors dog decided that my tricopter looked awfull tasty, so he started chasing it. I flew up and down the street, with the dog chasing and jumping and barking behind it. However, my battery gave out and I had to land. The dog almost tried to pick it up and run off, but I grabbed the tricopterand ran. After I made it back home the dog gave up and went back...

Well, I used to fly all thumbs, but recently switched to pinch on the left stick and thumb on the right stick. Why? I don't know!

Yeah I'm going to be buying lots of stuff over the summer as well.... why limit yourself? If you have a way to make cash, spend it on stuff that you'll have fun with!

I've decided that after I buy anything over $50, I'll wait a month before buying anything else. But waiting a whole summer without anything to build? That is torture.

Just trying to sell some stuff I don't use or need.

Would anyone be interested in a 1/16 Traxxas E-Revo? I have 2 lipos for it, and a nimh battery. I have the original charger for the nimh battery. It is 2.4 and I have the 2.4 transmitter as well. The car is beat up(which basher isn't?) but still drives great. I also have some spare parts(I think the A-arms.) The body mounts are upgraded to J-tec red aluminum ones. I also have a J-Tec wheelie bar that is aluminum as well. For some reason the car kind of make a clacking noise when going fast in reverse and sometimes in drive but it still drives great. (I think it is the plastic gears not staying locked in). I am going to ask $250 or best offer for it. I also have the manual as well.
I can take pictures upon request and text them too you(PM me for my number) because my computer doesn't like to upload pictures.

Also a E-flite Blade MSR $80 shipped?
And the AJ Slick parts I listed already

Post this stuff in the classifieds, not here. Based on what we've said about the mini revo I don't think many in this thread are interested...

You can post that on the Traxxas Forums as well.
