Ryan,

I have 3 receiver units, and 3 planes to put them in... but you know THAT's not gonna happen for a good long while. I've only just started building my first one.

So you can buy one of mine at regular price and I'll just repurchase one when I get to my 3rd plane.

I might take you up on that Todd. I'm sending one of mine in for repair and I'm not sure how long it will take to get it back.

It's all good. I just though I would ask just in case you wanted get rid of yours. I ordered a new one. Should be here in the next few days I hope.

Do you ever have those weeks were everything you fly seems to crash? I crashed a wing that wasn't made to crash yesterday in a cemetery and my skywalker today. I just about hit a sign! It's times like this that I wonder why the crap I do this stuff! I think what I need is a good day of combat. It's always funner crashing when your trying to do it.

Video clip coming soon of a pancake skywalker landing and the full on ground smashing good time!

Oh mamma!

Bet that munched the nose good. Did the wing catch that sign post? Ugh!

It looks like you had control when you first launched... did you fly below the terrain so you lost signal when it got down low?

Crazy. I need to get mine built so I can enjoy some of this spring weather from altitude!

Dang, wish I hadn't ordered a V2 when I did and gotten a V3 instead.

How much is a V3 going for?

The drop below the horizon from this close would not effect the range. The reason I know that is because the plane didn't go into failsafe or the motor would have throttled up and tried to return home.

I think I figured out the reason it locked out but I'm not 100% sure. I hate not knowing. It could be a couple of things. 1. The FY20 could have messed everything up because of the way it was installed. It's now removed (pretty much removed itself). 2. I just updated the OSD. I think the problem is most likely the FY20 because I'm not seeing anyone else complaining after updating.

Haha, if you're waiting for Jon you'll grow old and gray and die first.

Mike K will be the first I bet. I was totally gung ho, but waiting 3+ months for a stupid DragonLink sucked the excitement right out of me.

Now I have it, I can't get motivated to start the project. But videos like that definitely help. That guy has balls of steel the size of Lee's trailer hitch that he flew today on the Bullwinkle. I mean, I have a hard time imagining that he's any more than a few inches off the ground, and flying down that ditch is nuts. I could see having that kind of confidence if you're seeing it in HD, but he's watching it in some crappy goggles where that giant weed sticking up is maybe 1 visible pixel to him.
