SEFF was very very fun.

I got to see the 3DHS planes ripping it up ... which really makes me want to buy the 51" Slick ... their show was great and really funny .... I will most likely buy a Slick or Extra in the near Future.

I saw the Electrifly Evader that a Futaba guy was flying around , he showed it to me and it was a really sweet plane, 100mph out of the box. I will look into that plane too.

I saw some really cool nightflying stuff. I guess I will have to order some lights now ... Not sure where I can fly a nightflyer ... but it seemed like a blast , especially the flying wings. (Man, my list of planes just got longer)

The combat event was really cool , I will bring a combat plane next time. I got video of the whole event too .... I will post that later.

I only flew my FunJet .... and Super Cub ... both in the parkflyers area.

I got a FPV ride by a nice guy named kevinhines (on RCG) it was such a different perspective than normal flying. I think it was one of the coolest things at the show.

Here are the pictures that I took.

For a windy ... and almost rainy day .... it was great ! I can't wait for next year.

It was a super organized event , and it was very fun !

I got some cool video of some planes at my flying field ... here it is....

The Foambusters Gathering .... Featuring the Ordinance Drop ... (2 min 29 sec)

Tomorrow looks good, the Wind will not get over 10mph ..... I hope ... I am really itching to fly.

I also got the UM Micro P-51 and it is really fun ... it gives me something to do on those perfect days when I can't go to the flying field. I plan to get some video of it soon. You can almost hover it with a little help from the wind.

I finally figured out how launch the FunJet ... and have been flying it a LOT lately.

I upgraded it to a Dons RC Wicked 2700 kv Motor ... and it was sweet , the motor was perfect for the plane.

I think it was going over 85mph at least .... it was really fun ... until the motor smoked. Which stinks ... but I will order another if my new motor doesn't work out.

Luckily, I got my package from HobbyCity with my new motor. I also got a Watt Meter and a 40 amp ESC .. and some new batteries. I think I got the 2536 2350kv motor everyone has been using. I also got some stickers for free ... so I put them on my FunJet.

Right now I am pulling 35 amps , at 400 Watts on a 5 by 5 prop. I need to get a 60 Amp ESC to really get this plane going.

I really like my Watt meter and have tested some other planes.

T-28 - 21 Amps 245 Watts with an 8 by 6 prop ... I think I might be able to put a bigger prop on.

AMX - 26 Amps 324 watts ... 64 mm EDF .... I also had to replace a servo on it. I plan to try my other EDF Jets soon.

I also might be getting the Ultra Micro P-51 soon to fly , because the weather has been perfect !
