Just wanted to post a couple pics of my sons Joseph(8), Joshua(6), Darren(18 mos.)and our newborn Jacob born on July 14 2010! I am one proud father and love each and every one of these boys more than they will ever imagine...

Joe and Josh are already flying r/c and doing well. Darren is into tinkering with switches,props,wheels and anything he can touch and spin when I turn away. Darren and Jacob will soon be in this great hobby and I look forward to teaching them the ropes as well!

My wife and I are very blessed to have 4 great boy's. These are my future flyer's!!!

Sweet flying at high or low speeds! I use it to carry my HD Video Camera and for flying at night. I recently added lights and take it out to the local Wal*Mart after midnight to fly it.

The first time I saw one of these I absolutely hated the looks of it, that was until my brother let me fly his Slow Stik off of the roof at his job(don't ask).

I was hooked and had to get one. Me being MR. Modifier could not leave it stock though, I added ailerons and simply bent the horizontal into a V-shape (about 40 degrees) and tweaked it to fit and bolt on. It is flown on Spektrum and uses a 930KV RCTIMER motor/APC 9X6 prop/25a ESC and 3S1000mah battery. The servos are from a Blade SR heli and work well.

It will take off in 1 foot/climb vertical/fly inverted/and land on a dime! The ailerons are a little sluggish even at full throw, I heard you can cut the tips off the wings to make the roll rate faster but I am not sure i want to hack them off just yet... I need video proof first!

I could not ask for anything better to fly up and down my inter-city neighborhood when I do not feel like dragging all my crap to the field.
