SloFly

Thanks to Court, I ended up with the goodies for a SloFly.

Nothing special about the build, Pico servo's, Pico rcvr, 2204-14 motor, CC 10amp controller.

It flies great!! Only had it out a couple of times due to weather and time, but I like it. My backyard is small, and my flyable area is the size of half of a BBall court, so the SloFly is perfect...if I catch a tree, who cares...no harm to the airframe!

I decided that since this is my "go to" airframe, I would try my hand at shooting some color on it. Now, keep in mind I am not an artist...when I draw stick people, you cannot identify them..

I was using a Badger 200 single action gun, and playing around with some masks I free-handed. With a little practice, I am sure I will be able to get some awesome results.

Paint is the cheap 99 cent stuff from walmart, thinned with Future floor wax.

That should make at least 3 Sloflys to make it to Eden. Larry and I will both have one, and I plan on building that Yak55 tonight and tomorrow I also have my 36" Yak 54 floppy flyer that will be there. I am also trying to build a Goolie this weekend, but don't know if I have all the parts to get it ready for the indoor. Plus, I don't see me flying it at Eden really. Too loud and fast.

Nice job man. What is your AUW on it?

Ah yeah, I have been wanting to do one of those too! Nice, can't wait to see it at Eden.

6.2OZ!!! That is almost perfect! I think you have me beat by 2 ozs. I am sure it flys great that lite.

Dude, the Ghost is AWESOME! I got to fly Bill's demo Ghost's at EFest, and since I have been a longtime fanboy, I just had to have one...It flies so light it has to be seen to be believed!!!

I cannot say enough about the work and attention Bill has put into the design of the Ghost...it is a true Joy to fly. Eden will be a blast for sure this time!!

BTW, Fred has something special up his sleave for this trip and the "EVC" Can you say prizes? Awesome ones to..FlightPass member ships!!!

Jaime, The doghouse is going to be kitted....I was very honored and surprised when I was approached about it. Like I tell everyone else, I am just a poor country boy from the foothills of NC who likes to fly his planes...I never thought I would have a design go into production!!

I just received the Scorpion swag pack from Lucien for submitting the PSC question. It looks great. Thanks a lot Lucien and keep up the great PSC segments. I learn a ton from them.

Well for some reason those crazy people in Australia and New Zealand (All the same right ) listen to the show! And those guys in Europe too. I am sure Snoopy would love a trip to one of those locations! Heck, I would. I am waiting for someone at Siemens to realize I work for the company and fly me to Germany to fly with them

Better watch out. If Snoopy goes flying in Germany, he'll be watching his six all the time! Or looking for something to come out of the sun!

You hadn't been around in a while. I thought that might bring you out in the open
