Quite awesome flying there. Happy and sad at the same time watching this.
Happy to see the place but sad I probably won't be able to make it this time 'round.
Been there for the last 3 years, though. An awesome spectacle and well worth the trip for anyone even considering attending.

And I can imagine there will be a few Green Machines there this time! And other cool stuff! So many new things have come out this year it will be an exciting event.

Thanks for sharing the video. 150% here I come!

Make that mainland Australia! I'm in Tasmania and I can tell you, you wouldn't be able to tell it's summer here! I haven't been out to the club for quite a few months now! At least it's not snowing I suppose :-)

Great flying! Loved the video.

With regards to the settings used in the video:
Could you please check where your CG is from the leading edge of the wing.
Also, do you know what the +/- angular travels are at each control surface (not the servo).

Keep the good stuff coming

In my case both of the above.
Phoenix 4, because you can hook up your own Tx and experiment with DR and Expo. Plus it is really realistic to true flying.

Pretty awesome stuff, thanks for providing it!

I'm no good at 3D yet, but can second Twisted Hobbys for providing a great machine to start to learn 3D on -- I have the Crack Pitts myself, just moved it to 3S.

I think having that and the simulator help keep me from beating up my UMX Beast, Sbach 342, and Edge 540QQ too much, since I try stuff there first.

Sweet flying as usual Colton! Rippin it up with that lil Edge, no doubt. Kindof makes me want one

Speaking of cold and windy, man, it felt like Chicago or something down here today.
Hoping it lets up some in the next day or so. You making it home for the holidays?

I dont have anything to offer as to the ESC, but make sure you are shorting the pins before you plug the battery in, and keep them shorted until you have it bound.
