I'm loving my Dell M110x LED projector...my own movie house

If you are on a budget and want a 100 inch screen, I would highly recommend the new LED projectors that are out. Make sure you get 1080p resolution for best results.

Below I have my 40 inch next to my projected image (im using a bare wall). I don't have to hate widescreen movies as much as before because of the wasted tv space. Please let me know what you think.

So after my not so perfect morning I was able to go fly again once all my batteries were charged. The Extra had been repaired, I am happy to say that she flies the same as this morning, a couple of grams of CA and tape did not affect her flight characteristics. I have to wait until Friday for my cowl and landing gear covers. She's not that pretty underneath but you can barely tell when she is flying. I really need all of the flying field to land her as she lands pretty hot, I wonder if flaperons would help slow her down?

The Wildcat is such a joy to fly WOT compared to the extra, the slight dihedral really helps. I just wished she had landing gears. There was a 2 minute stretch were I pretended I had a Zero on my tail and I had to shake it off, lol fun stuff.

It was a nice day off, watched a couple of movies, laundry, and some good ol flying.

I can't wait for Saturday to fly again.

I just got back from the flying field and I am so pissed. I had to go before I do something i would regret.

So Im flying my extra with the flying field to myself. I gathered a bunch of cars watching me do my thing. Then enters a helicopter guy, no problem they fly on the hill behind me. Next thing I know this joker sets up where I land. I didn't see him until I was committed to my landing. Seriously, this guy who is always mister rude decided to be friendly and fly next to me and where I land. "I thought I was out of your way" seriously? he never flies where I fly. I don't care you have a new helicopter! Long story short I ran out of landing area since I had to land the plane behind me instead of in front of me. Freaking A, I never power up when somebody is flying without establishing where the flight line is. After telling him that it was not cool that he setup where I land he finally went up the hill where he always flies. The damage has already been done. Inconsiderate bastard!

Im so pissed, I broke the cowl and one of the landing strut cover. Scratched my spinner and made my landing gear assembly crack all because this dude wanted to show off. I ran out of space had to turn the plane on the final stretch. It didn't look much but the damage was more dramatic than the landing, I just nosed over didn't even flip it but the rocks did their damage. I am an airplane guy, I don't care for your stinking whirly bird! This ends my streak of not breaking anything.

It's dark after work I can no longer fly everyday which is bummer. I can only fly on the weekends now. I enjoy waking up on the weekends and heading straight to my flying field so I hope it's not raining tomorrow.

But in the mean time I have been killing time on my PC again. I've been playing Mechwarrior Online....3 screen mech glory!

I got blown up quite a few times since I am new so I had time to take pics....more screens more fun. (3-22 inch LED screens)

now if i can just get an invite to the closed beta for World of Warplanes...

I am really getting comfortable with the PZ Extra300. Im able to do multiple tumbles without a sweat. Scary when you I think about it, overconfidence breeds negligence, but it's fun. Walls are fun too. Almost got the flat spin down, trying to get her flatter. The extra twist when full up elevator is applied, it makes it hard to do clean tight loops.

...up next 4 point rolls

I'm almost ready for my balsa. Im thinking 3DHS 41' 540 now.
