First of a couple new Additions to the Fleet - UMX Mig 15 DF Micro Jet

It's been a few months but this summer was a good one for me in terms of new planes. Here is a video of the maiden of my new Eflite UMX Mig 15 DF micro jet. This is my FIRST DF plane. VERY fun, very stable in the wind due to the built in AS3X technology. Remarkable little plane.

Thanks Kev! I do these mostly just for myself and to archive and document my skill development, etc. I have actually somehow gotten over 100 subscribers to my YouTube channel and that just makes me chuckle, as I have no grand commercial venture ideas out of this, just trying to have fun, socialize with like minded hobby enthusiests and keep track of my models and skills. Kinda fun going back and seeing how far I have come in just a couple years in the hobby. Not bad for an old guy from Edmonton, lol.

Talk to you later,

Marlin

Here's a good one for you!

Marlin-here's a good one for you on Saturday evening my flying buddy les and I were flying behind the local school,there was a fellow there with his wife and two younger boys.They were all very much entertained with our flying and were even recording it on an I-pad.Well when we were done they all came over and asked all the standard questions-but one of the last ones the father asked was the kicker-he asked do you guys put on aerobatic flight demonstrations?!!!! Wow and we suck-I mean we can land and take-off and do all the basics-loops,rolls,invert,immanual turns,etc but'nothing special-it put a smile on my face-I should have said yeah we do and we do kid's parties for $100 a piece(LOL)-later bud-kevin

NICE! Always great when folks actually warm up to the hobby from just watching the models fly. I love introducing new folks to the hobby. I suspect you are being a little hard on yourself as well, clearly your flying was good enough to impress the dad! I often get folks stopping and chatting with me and watching the plane when I get lazy and pull out a micro and small park flyer and just head to the end of the block and fly in our double soccer field park by the house. Loads of great feedback and conversation.

Talk to you Kev,

Marlin
