I am really surprised to say the least. From what I have seen, like the one Nate has, you wonder how that thing even gets up with almost nothing on it, and then you tell me, "I hang all this stuff on it" Simply amazing what you can do with these little things.

Someday I like to look at your set up.

Check out the AP Forum... You'll find SlowSticks that weight 35+ oz that are used to fly $$$ digital cameras .

Im rebuilding a new one due to a small encounter with a house a few weeks ago.. I'll post some pictures when im finished.

The park generally called Taylorsville Park "Tree farm" is actually Valley Park.

I wish I could. My WW isn't ready yet, and I haven't had a chance to replace the stripped gears/servos in my Unicorn.

Oh my...
It is just perfect today.
First time ever, I caught the wing out of the air, have been practicing.....

Neatest thing with a bit of wind.
Go way up, straight over your head, cut the motor, point it into the wind and add throttle, see how long I can fly that thing like a kite.
Pain in the neck tho.....

Hej Lee, that thing is a floater and a half, but then you already knew that.

Let us know when and where your going to be flying and im sure your likely to find someone who would like to fly nearby.

Well my friend has actually flown his plane from the back of my truck while driving! So flying next to a road doesn't seem to bother me. In my opinion the lacross players are a worse threat! I guess next time he does that I will have to mount my mini video camera to the plane.

Hmm.. Just got the Taylorsville/Kerns Journal.
They are talking about the upcoming Taylorsville Dayz.
And, yes, you're right. The park is mentioned as "Valley Regional Park".
