I didn't take much video but I'll see what I have, I took some of Bob's F-16, Acemigkiller's P-59 with twin microfans, and maybe some others. I missed FL62's Viper totally, didn't see it fly.

Hmm... I got stuck in Phoenix thanks to a late flight. Rented a car and got there in time to see some night flying. Met Mark Wood. Saw someones HUGE F-16 sitting on the ground, Chris Cliques (sp) strange forward swept edf things, someones old Ky T-33 with LG sitting on a table... but most everyone had bugged out. Then of course my replacement flight left in the morning. argh. Maybe I'll make it for real next year.

Here's some pics I took. Didn't get any pics of FL62's Viper but I think there's some back in the AZ Jets 06 thread. Bob's Byron F-16 leaped on the start with all that thrust, and was pretty fast, I'd guess 90 to 100 mph level if not more. The little P-59 was cool, and I even got to see a Kyosho T-33 fly with the authority of a brushless motor and lipos. I didn't see the Viper fly so I missed the crash, but don't want to see that kind of thing anyway, easy to miss things with so much going on. Next time my camera will be in my pocket at all times!

Not sure on the sharks mouth, the one that was painted up in Steve Ritchie's colors for the 50th USAF anniversary had sharks teeth on it but I don't know if the original airplane did or not. I'll probably put them on eventually, but it'll be a while, I'm in the post-rally laziness period!

Hey thanks! I had two flights on it @ the E-Fest, first one almost ended that model!!! Somehow my up trim got askewed and it took off like a rocket, stalled, and started heading back to terra firma... Luckily I caught the trim issue and changed it/recovered it before gravity won the fight!
Saturday's flight went great though!

Got alot of compliments on it! And coming from the likes of Mike Warren, Pat Trittle and Ed Waldrep, I'd consider that pretty cool!

Did manage to snap a few cool shots of Ed's F-4, which performed VERY well!
Enjoy!
