My friend Jim at the flying field took some great pictures from last Sunday.

It was a great day full of flying. I mostly flew my 51" AJ Slick and 46" Vyper.

I have now completely changed radio systems, I have upgraded from my Dx7 to a Futaba 8FG.

I love my new radio, so many programming options and its very easy to setup. The only bad thing is I am still not used to flying with it, but now that I have my simulator cable I am getting more comfortable.

Four more days of school left and I can enjoy a full summer of flying!

I finally maidened my new gasser ... my new "pride and joy" 3DHS Extra 330.

My setup:

Hs-985 servos all around
Smartfly Dual Reg
Turnigy BEC for Ignition Regulator..
Three Thunder Power 1300 2s lipos.

It was a colder than usual day, and I was battling a nasty cold .. but I had to fly it.

I was so nervous as I never have built a gasser myself. After getting the engine started and basically tuned I took off into a nice headwind. It flew PERFECT. No trim and the CG was right on the money.

It flies absolutely incredible. Tracking in knife-edge was superb and flew precision very well. It also 3D's like a maniac ! Rolling loops and snap rolls were easy and rolling harriers were smooth as silk.

Tomorrow I am going to take it for a couple more flights after school ...

Here is the Mini Stormbach my friend Stormdriverone made ...

As you can see if flies very well and it very fun !

He added some right thrust and moved the battery and it flies even better than the original.

My friend has done a great job tweaking and getting the best performance out the this plane.

Here is some video of it being flown by me.


For a 20" wingspan plane it is totally 3D capable and is very fast also. It rolls very fast and is a ball to fly.

It also can be built in many other sizes.

Here is the thread for it: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show....php?t=1180912

Slick 51 at Peeler's Park (5 min 6 sec)

This is such a great flying plane.

Very stable in post stall flight yet has the ability to fly fast and be precise.
