Guys please don't hate me, but I may be switching over more the the Leccy side.
You see I was out mowing twist field today and my neighbor has alot of locust tree now springing up at the end of my field.
It is my fault though. three years ago I accidently set fire to mine and my neighbors field.
It burnt off all the grass and the locust trees are now growing rampant.
there's hundreds of them and I'm sure my neighbor is going to want to keep them to help hide his home from the road and give cover to all the big bucks we have running around.
So flying the larger nitro planes is soon going to bve a problem. Unless I can learn to harrier land and have the planes that can harrier in.
I may just have to get into the 48 inch leccys.

I got no beef <or Bacon> with that. There is always a tool for the purpose.

SEFF is a Big Event from the air, and at 2:15 near the top of the video you can see what a DLG and a power line make when they get together.

Plowboy did you figure out your radio yet?

If not, make sure you set the flap values to ZERO up/ctr/down, and remove all flap trim. Ail Diff = 0.

If that doesn't help, list where your right ail is plugged into as well as the left ail.

And what are all the settings in the menus parallel to the model selection menu set to that involve flaps, ailerons, or wing mixes?

I'm a Fuatba guy but I've tricked plenty of Spektrum/JR radios into doing something close to what I want...

That's right! Thanks Eric!!

Well, after she was all done I thought I'd double check the clocking of my new prop. Usually I sand the trailing edge of new props but didn't do this one yet. You guessed it, I flipped her backwards for some reason and put a slice in my finger!! This plane should fly much better now. She's been crashed and she's had her blood sacrifice!! :0.

Go Waldo!! You are a building machine!!

Plowboy she ain't no virgin now for sure.

Guys I got the Green Machine Blues. The rain is headed our way and it streches all the way to Ok. I havn't flown her in a couple of months now. I really need to get her dialed in for the Slick convention and the Huck fest season.

Well... with the rain you will at least have time to double check everything and make sure its ready when you get there.

Kerwin, my wife is in St Louis until Thursday, I'm really worried about the weather after what happened outside the Cardinal's stadium (whatever it's called) yesterday!

On a brighter note, I'm off to the field!!

R Diddy!! Have fun mowing! That is a huge cub! Must be a BH model?

The Sabre held together for the maiden. I need to play with the aileron reflex and possibly my CG. I'm going to make a few trimming flights. Of course, I can't resist stressing her a little!!
I'm by myself again, but BanjoTX is on his way.
The winds are 15 or so already and supposed to pick up as the day goes on. It's still cloudy so I'm hoping it will hold off long enough to get a few flights in. I'm topping off the A123 to get an idea of usage per flight.

Alan I hope your wife weathers the storms today ok. My thoughts and prayers will be with her.

DOG I just got back from the mail box THANKS. Now while I have went over my Green Machine with a fine tooth comb, What I need to do now is check my inverted flight and snaps. The spring on the metering lever could be weak, causing the mixture to change.
I also retarded the timing some for a better Idle, so I need to check out how she spools up as well as my needle settings.
32 days guys. I really hope you and snowdog can make it. Of course I'll have to change your name from DOG to the young dude while in my presence. LOL
