This is the maiden flight of my FMS P-39 Airacobra 980mm High-Speed "Hells Bells" using the Lemon Rx DSMX 7-Channel Diversity Receiver / Stabilizer .

FMS P-39 Airacobra 980mm High-Speed "Hells Bells" - Lemon Rx Maiden Flight (4 min 55 sec)

I picked up this FMS model at my local hobby store after my buddy that works there made me an offer "that I couldn't refuse."  The Airacobra is a type of plane that didn't jump out at me as a "must have" model, but it certainly grew on me over time. Completion of the build took a few evenings (due to my work schedule), but was very straightforward. 

I decided to perform the maiden flight on this fairly cold but calm wind Saturday.  Unbeknownst to me, my maiden flight of this FMS High-Speed Edition was being recorded on the sidelines by my flying buddy, Mike "Deuces Wild" Frontiero.  During the flight, a group of soccer players were also congregating to the adjacent field, but stopped to watch the flight as well.

This FMS model is a rocket! A very smooth and predictable warbird with a locked-in feel, even more so with the Lemon Rx DSMX 7-Channel Diversity Receiver / Stabilizer. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this plane.. as it has very well-mannered flight characteristics, coupled with amazing speed, as well as being easy on landing approaches (for a warbird). I'm completely blown away - an amazing flying machine and an awesome lander.. I truly feel lucky to...Continue Reading

This is a performance flight of my Eflite T-28 Trojan 1.2 Meter on a bright and sunny first day of 2017.

Eflite T-28 Trojan 1.2 Meter Performance Flight - First Flight of 2017 (5 min 22 sec)

With the frigid weather this past week being in the abysmal low 20’s and with high wind warnings in effect daily, this is a good throwback to the last time I was able to fly with beautiful weather and good friends.

And no better plane to enjoy the weather with than the Eflite T-28 Trojan!

My flight buddy Mike “Deuces Wild” Frontiero (who is recording this video) also picked up one of these beauties at the local hobby shop the day prior and was able to perform the maiden flight of his Eflite T-28 Trojan 1.2m just prior to my flight as well.

Mike’s verdict on the Eflite T-28 Trojan 1.2m – “Nothing like a Trojan man.. I should have picked up one of these a long time ago.”

A compilation of all of my memorable moments in Cheer, Family, and as an RC Pilot.

2016 - 2017 Memories (4 min 58 sec)

Of all my treasured things, my memories are what I hold most dear. Although 2016 held its sad and dark moments, it was overshadowed in the light of all the moments that were most precious. Thank you for all the experiences that I'll always remember, and I'll hold them close to me into 2017.

May the winds always be in your favor. Happy New Years guys.
