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...

Hi Sal,

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?

Jordan,

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)
