Hangar 9 micro Ultimate biplane soars

The other day the thermals were popping a little, the weather was warm.
I was locked in my shop trying to pack up some gorgeous scale sailplanes
and Pegasus tow planes. I had no time to go fly anything large, so,
while the glue was drying on one box I was building, I fired up my foamy
3D micro Ultimate to practice some in your face up close 3D flying.
These things are better than helicopters to hone your skills, as you can
hover all you want, then fly like a normal fixed wing aircraft. Try a
rolling circle with one of these for a challenge in a 10 knot wind.
While I was horsing around, I spied a red tail hawk just above me in
lift, I could not resist, up I went to join him. Apparently the Hangar 9
bipe looked like one of his buddies as he did not flinch as I joined in
circling with him.
In no time, much to my surprise I was way above him (with the motor off
of course), and my little yellow electric plane was getting very small.
The nice thing about these little foam planes is that the sun makes them
glow as if they had lights on, very cool.
These things are very nifty and cost only what three digital servos
might set you back, about $300.00 outfitted with a brushless system and
lipo packs.
