Nice job Jordan. Did you fly it yet? How about coming out to the dome in Bensenville? We've been there almost every Saturday night...

The plane flies very well, I would say almost pattern like. The rudder is very powerful and with the PJS300 I can climb out of a hover easily (I need to 'cause I don't hover very well). The fuselage is beat up now, I have never crashed it but I have run the batteries to cut off too many times and it doesn't glide well at all without power, so those landings are more arrivals. I have been flying on Thursday at the Bensenville dome. I just don't like the big crowd on Saturday. I saw Eric this last Thursday at the dome and got to fly his new foamy modeled after the Gee Bee. Flies nice very stable in hover and harrier position. I actually could hover it under control for maybe ten seconds at a time (that is by far my best). How are you and Mitch?

Mitch & I are good. We've been flying at the dome with Eric. Went this past Friday & Saturday. Eric made me up one of his foamies too, there were 4 of us flying in & out of each other. Really cool. Stop out on a Saturday night... (we see Rich from time to time)
