Well, I had the privilege of doing a beta build of 6mmflyrc's F4 Phantom II and today was the magic maiden. It was great. What a plane! The Video is here on RCgroups or eventually on www.6mmflyrc's web site. And we found a new, even better and greener field than two weeks ago! All in all, another great day of flying. Now that the F4 is done, what is going to get built next!??Well, lets crawl down under the table and have a look-see .....

We tried a new field yesterday at a school, across the street from the LHS in Sonoma. And you know, it was pretty cherry. The best part was the grass ... green, soft, and clearly irrigated since everything else out here this time of year is golden brown I.E. burnt to a crisp cause "it never rains in California", at least not from about april/may to around november/december. We had nice benches to pit our gear off of and it was only a short walk from cars to pit row. But the grass was the best part! I maidened my 6mmflyrc Super Bandit, and after 3 flights, it went home with nary a scratch more than it had when it left the house a few hours earlier. SweeeeeT! What a great day, what a great hobby!
