Got a little flying in,no bbq though . My vyper should get here later today so that will make up for the lack of bbq . Man i wish i had some bbq now,i might have to go to famous daves after the vyper gets here,i could go for some brisket,ribs,and pulled pork,bbq rocks. If i did covering id make a bbq plane,hooters rocks and they have bbq.. a bbq hooters plane. Bbq and babes rock. I better take some meat out of the freezer for later today.. then i can assemble my vyper and have bbq without leaving. Wish i had some bbq now,i have to start freezing bbq food so i can just throw it in the microwave.. fresh bbq is best though. Ok im gonna make something to eat.. it wont be bbq though . Maybe if i watch bbq on youtube while i eat some vile non bbq my stomach wont know the differance? Would be cool to sell my house and buy a field and have a bbq shack at the field,if i ran the ama all flying fields would require onsite bbq.. if there was no bbq on hand no one could fly until there was bbq ready to serve. Id probally fly at ama fields a lot if they had bbq .

Picked this one up used,good price and it had some upgrades. It was a losi eight rtr(just the buggy). Wanted one of these for quite a while.. and wanted a brushless 8th scale buggy or truggy for quite some time to. I threw a nitro motor in it just to run it this weekend and i'll drop a brushless in it soon hopefully.. should be a lot of fun. Doesnt need to much work and its in relativly good shape overall,started it up a little while ago ,the smell and sound of nitro is good . The pipe that came with it keeps that big motor fairly quiet.. even revving it in the laundry room .

Flew pretty well even being a bit tail heavy with such a light set up,a pull pull on the elevator will take care of that for neutral cg with the 4s 2200 pack,could get it even lighter with some mods and different gear. The rudder cables were a bit loose and showed in flight.. got those tightend up for next weekend. Power was plenty for slow floaty 3d for me. As airframes get bigger and lighter and power systems get more powerful and lighter cg becomes an issue for some.. Theres many ways around this but i dont suggest duplicating them if your not comfortable with a plane or set up,really light set ups and highly powered ballistic set ups are not for everyone but there fun to try out . If consumers,designers,manufacturers become complacent.. technology and airframe design will stagnate.

Dreary rainy day out here but i was determined to have some fun and fly for a bit,Put both planes into the ground about 5 minutes apart.. some days dont go to well but the big foamie was fun and i might repair it. The slicck is a paper weight.. quite a bit of work to repair it and i'll order a vyper to replace it.. the slick was a lot of fun.

Had fun today,even with a really close call with the edge.. it almost bit the dirt kamikaze style. Tryed a couple different things with the edge and the slick,after that i played the weed game.. I use to play this with my typhoon 3d but the slick isnt z-foam so im a bit more careful with the slick and dont dive into the weeds then pull up . Its always a good day when the planes come back not needing repair or changing set ups so i fired up the grill and threw on some skirt steak,flank steak and chicken.. made fresh salsa yesterday to.. the good stuff(cilantro,broiled tomatoes,onion,jalapeno,lime.. and just enough salt) . Flying And Grillin Rock!

Went to the local shop to pick up some smaller pinion gears for the brushless set up i installed on the slash. They had a mini e-revo there and did a demo out back.. if your a rc car guy or gal you gotta see this,its like a mini savage flux on steroids .

My roots in rc have always been with offroad cars,will probally always have one no matter where my rc flying ends up. Its my first brushless set up in one,been doing the brushless thing with planes and helis a few years now but wish they had brushless and lipos decades ago when i was racing them . It was geared a little high but i'll pick up some spur gears maybe by the weekend .

Got it repaired . Its never fun though having a plane go down when the battery ejects and theres nothing you can do to try and save it,after the repair i changed power set ups to,went to a lighter set up and auw is 4lbs with a zippy flightmax 4s 20c 3000 pack and the torque 2814-720 with a apc 14x7 for over 800 watts. Gonna fly it later today if the weather agrees.

The slick,trex,truggy and my buddys t-28 4 stroke nitro plane and his slash.. really mixed up the rc today and had fun.. think i'll put a hook on the tail of the slick and try and make his traxxas slash really fly next time(oh and killed a big nasty bug with the trex 600 lol) Had to wipe his guts off my blades after i got home .

Trying to fly it a bit more this year,i need to fly helis as much as planes to make more progress this year as well. Still a lot of fun because i dont fly them much and there quite a bit different to fly then planes,should be able to do the 3d a little better when i bump up the throttle to a 100% flat curve for quick pitch changes. Flys really well,need to get more packs for it then just two and 6s trex packs will work well in 70'' planes as well ,bigger flys better .

Time or money its always one or the other,got plenty of zippy lipos to get more flights in with the planes this year.. ive tryed to downsize on whats in the hangar and get more packs this year to get more flying in but it doesnt seem to be working.. 2 techone epp planes,1 rockin trex 600 and a aj slick.. think i need one more plane though a bit larger.. maybe a 55'' something or another,it doesnt help a bud is talking about getting his big gasser yak flying.. still want to get a 50cc size plane eventually but 70'' planes on the horizon look really good.. decisions decisions .

Well sort of.. does a tree count? Wanted to find out what would break this foamy and the gr-35 at around 700 watts and some agressive flying did it,the plane will hold up fine probally on 350-400 watts and normal 3D flying.
