First off, This is a rant about poor customer service, I will try not to mention anybody's names, or products. And try my hardest to keep this civil. Last April I decided to try building 30cc sized airframe And I did the normal researching on all the forums that i could find pertaining to the airframes of my choice. Got a lot of useful info, thank you to all that continually post on these sites. So I gathered all of my new found info and made decisions about what products should go into my new project. Component choices where made based on experiences of similar products that I have used in the past, with only one complaint, they ran hot in the summer time. Ambient temps where I fly reach 105-110 regularly. But that is no reason to stay inside and fly on the sim. So my new component worked beautifully all summer 120+flights since may Then I find a problem with my new component. A failed glue joint. So I start thinking to myself, did I push the limits of said component to hard? Was my set up correct? So I contact the manufacturer, and they reply back to me in a few days, no worries box it and send it with a note. Cool. Well 6 days later I get a confirmation on the delivery from USPS. Nothing from the manufacturer So I email them, and wait, and wait. Well 9 days later after several emails, and voice mails just trying to figure out if my component actually made it to the right address. I get an email from the manufacturer. Good news, I was not abusing my component. My set up...Continue Reading

just got back from a great day of flying, over one full hour of air time
arrived at ash creek, at 10am. Had my truck unloaded and my trusty 74"edge set up and ready to go by 10:15. look down the flight line no one flying or getting ready to, great. what perfect timing for one hour of socializing and just checking out new planes. Did I mention that this was one of the best fly days this year. A little smokey from the fires nearby, but 90 degrees a slight breeze that struggles to move the wind sock, great people a beutiful 500" smooth runway. awsome people great planes and helis and some sweet flying. and did i mention a mid air colision, thats right nascar style turn n burn=mid air is going to happen. lucky for one pilot not a scratch. so hereare some pics...Continue Reading

well i got the landing gear back on my mini edge 540 3d, and had a pretty good 2nd flight. considering that this is my second rc plane im am pretty stoked that it is currently in one piece. first plane was a great planes super sportster ep, flew it twice and decided to park it. too much inherant stability. so i decided that i would try a 3d model for the second plane, i really like the amount of control you have with them on the simulators. hopefuly in a couple of weeks ill be able to aquire a battery pack for my new eratix 3d. cant wait to fly that one
