Doc, I can say without question that bit of flying with the new Velox was BadA**...............You are an inspiration to all of us mortals to get down on the deck, lower and lower each day.

The only problem I have now, is its dark out....and I have to wait until tommorrow to huck something around. You put a smile on alot of faces my friend, keep up the good work.

Very nice entertaining write up Doc, good job just like your other reviews. I wonder what 3DH plane will be in your next 25 flight report.... Maybe a 55".

I agree with your comments about the SHP being a "nice" plane. I have one on 3S and one on 4S, needless to say the 4S is a bit spunkier.

How would you compare the Velox to the 3DHS Yak 54 47" ??


I am thinking of purchasing the 55" version of the Yak also in the future. (near future)
I am sure you will have the Velox back up in no time, it doesn't sound too bad.
I get alot of older guys at my club who are always admonishing me for flying down on the deck, or doing something perceived as stupid, and I am repairing a little now and then , but I am having ALOT more fun than I used to!! If your gonna fly 3D, your gonna repair.

That's the plan, my friend!

I sure didn't take you long to get the swing of 3D. Looks like you and the Velox are going to have a nice long relationship..
