Here is a greeting from Sweden! I've followed your show ever since the first episode and it has helped me thru many boring days at work.

Since you let us laugh with/at you I thought it's only fair if I do the same, so I made a "youtube show".

I think this is in your taste:
Episode 1
RC-äggbombning / RC airplane EGG bomb drop (1 of 2) - RCExplorer.se (4 min 49 sec)


Episode 2
RC-äggbombning / RC airplane EGG bomb drop (2 of 2) - RCExplorer.se (9 min 44 sec)


You can watch in HD here: http://www.youtube.com/dadde87

The highlight of this episode is when I by accident egg bomb the airplane itself in mid air!
This happens at 5:32 into the second video

English subtitles are available if you click the box in the bottom left corner.

This hobby is made up out of people so it's important to share. You do it via the podcast and I do it by doing stupid stuff on video.

Mine was 275 watts!

That was awesome! Looks like you had a lot of fun with the family that day. Must have taken all day to do all those drops.

Wha...? Where you carrying a 1990s-era camcorder on the thing? You could tow two other Slow-sticks with that kind of power!

Hahaha, amazing you got that on film! Very cool. It is cool how some of the eggs survive the drop. I like the plane too. I have an old Graupner plane that is very similar to the EZ called a Uhu. Still in the box, might just convert it over to a stick build. Thanks for sharing the video and that laughs!

I see Southern GA has received some rain this year. That is great. There was rumor that Mac was going to rip up the field and sod the entire thing this year. Any truth to that rumor?

Bah, the rumor I heard was even better, but along those lines...

There was talk that he would fill in the depression at the north end of the field, and use the pit that he created as a lake, for boats and float planes.


I like my rumor better.

Then you do a slow motion replay at 9:35

I never have that much fun when I have my better half doing the filming...

Great video, but what's up with those shorts?

They are 3/4 length pants actually, very fashionable in Sweden FYI
Don't have any in the US? Would you like me to send you a pair?


I'm glad you all liked the videos
I like my EZ-Stick, It's super crash resistant, can carry heavy loads and i get 25-40 minutes of flight on a 3sA123. It's my choice for when I feel like doing crazy stuff.
You can find the build log here: http://rcexplorer.se/projects/page22/page22.html

There is only one downside to this plane... It's soooo ugly that it's impossible to look directly at it. It's ok to watch on film but if you would look straight at it in real life your eyes would be scorched out of your head
No but rely, it's not a looker, ain't it...


I'm very pleased that I could get you guys to laugh. They say that a good laugh prolongs you life. Maybe the laugh you get from the video is enough to cover the length of the video

Hey Jamie, time for you to get a stick. You can do so much fun stuff with a stick if you just use your imagination

I hope to see a UHU stick soon Diggs

bildo baggins: Yeah it was a great day, we had such a good time, even the wife admits it

Chris: Yeah it's a real multi tool, it fetches the potatoes, cleans the wings, warms the feet and much much more... If you call call within 10 minutes you get a free set of kitchen knifes without any extra charge!

I've come to the conclusion that a brick shaped like an airplane remains a brick. A pretty brick, but a brick nonetheless. My winter project has now been identified. It's rebuilding my .60 sized TF Corsair. (And figuring out how to trim about 7LBS off of her.)

They have them here, but they call them Capris, and they don't sell them in mens sizes

I had heard they were actually rather fashionable "over there" but I had yet to see it myself.

You're doing a great job with your videos, I have been watching and taking note. I al always looking for ways to improve my own.
