Was lucky enough to have Aussie champ Chris Brislin do a little 3D clinic at my club. Awesome to watch, not bad for a borrowed airframe on the day with a bit of wind.

Well, here I am, quietly minding my own business having a bit of a 3D session and maiden of a new mustang, when one of my clubmates turns up with this MONSTER!!! Omg...

cost:almost $200,000 Aussie money with all the survey stuff. (Yep, you read that right - two...hundred...grand...).
Servos: $16,000 euros. (Whatever that works out to be).
Engine: some massive rotary thing that needs a huge radiator and a dude on a laptop to fly it.
Weight: (depending on the load) up to 60kg.

these guys have a business doing aerial survey work, and this has been custom built for the big mining companies up in the remote northwest of oz. it's got a massive range, (max 20 litre fuel tank), 4K cameras and sensors all over it - and carries all this specialist mining survey equipment underneath, depending what they are looking for. (Hence the long legs). Completely blew my mind....

they were just doing some hover testing today, yes I got a little vid, I'll add to this post when I have time.

One of my clubmates captured these nice shots of me flying my 60 edge and lil 48 extra. Damn I love flying these two planes, they are sensational for 3D. Absolutely two of my favourites in my hangar.

Had to share this because 1, it's awesome and 2, to commemorate 75yrs today since the bombing of Darwin. A lot of people don't realise it was one of the biggest raids by the Japanese, they dropped more bombs, sunk more ships, and killed more civilians than at pearl harbour, and the raid was carried out by the same carriers. The Darwin bombing was largely kept quiet because the Aussie government didn't want it to get out how badly underprepared we were. and has hardly been recognised since. Today we remember. Lest we forget.

Thanks to everyone that serves or has served, no matter your country

And my new edge. This thing is awesome for 3D, though I needed to add sfgs to make it a bit more stable in high alpha stuff.

Just some pics of the p47. So glad I went to a lot of trouble getting a high powered 6s set up from the states and the vario prop from Germany - the plane flies beautifully. Video soonish I hope

Vid I did for a mate of his maiden day with the hsd viper. I've been lucky enough to have quite a few flights with it now and it's a beautiful flyer as you'll see. Super stable and easy, this will be the jet clubs new trainer, and I can say from personal experience, it's awesome fun to fly.

Here's a mate at my clubs maiden on the new freeing F-14, in some crazy wind at the end of our annual show for the public. I did a pretty poor job on the camera, there's not much after I cut out most of the dot in the sky/shaky stuff. I'll do a better vid of it soon.

HD and full screen looks pretty good on this one I think. (and you might catch my supercool air to air refuelling mod... ) hope you like it, this one took a while but worth it!

A mate at my club and his comp 3d Eurofighter. Some amazing pilot skills and prob my best effort on the camera to date for smooth, keep it it centre shot filming. As usual, HD, full screen, and while ur at it - crank the volume for this one!

Bit of a progress report - flight 7 with the f-16. There's a little bit of dot in the sky stuff, but not too bad with full screen n HD.

Finally got around to getting some vid of my fw190 with the 4258 motor installed. Out of all my FMS birds, I can honestly say that this is the one I'm having the most fun flying, but it's also the most difficult to nail a landing on. (But, I do like a challenge! ) Anyway, here's some unedited vid of a flight the other day. (I especially like the sound it makes).

Great flyer, performs really well and is ridiculously easy to fly. Must admit it feels a bit "toy-like" after flying all my other fms 1400mm on the 4258 motor, but I've no plans to upgrade this one, it's a lot of fun as is.
