I finally got the buck huck 3dhs edge 540 41 inch... I love it. It only took me 2 flights to get comfortable with it.

I used HS65mg all around, Castle Phoenix 45 amp, and a park 480 brushless motor using a 2200 mAh lipo spinning a Vox 12X6 wood prop.

I have custom decals using a Breitling timepiece scheme...

I picked up a C172 (with Carlo) that we purchased in North Carolina. The plane flew good. Not bad for the price we got it for. It came in with garmin 430 and a portable gps as well and new exhaust. It took us 4 days to get home to california. It is 26hours flight time total. We had stops in Memphis, Cincinatti, New Mexico, Tulsa, Tucson, Palm Springs and finally Hayward.

Of course we took our time and enjoyed the scenic views. It was a nice trip. This was my third coast to coast flight. We ran into these air force guys in new mexico.

I will pick up a Cessna 210 in Arkansas next month. I will be taking my girlfriend this time since my friend landed a job at HongKongAIR as an FO.

well.... it was a hot and fun saturday until....

She was on dive when it got out of control and plunged into the field ... The screws on the motor mount pushed inwards after the impact and punctured the lipo and burst into flames... Thanks to Matt for his portable fire extinguisher.
