Since I can build it from scratch if I want, I would not be concerned with an FCC compliance certification.

It is illegal to manufacture for sale some devices without UL, CE, or FCC certifications. These are consumer protection laws. A TV can cause harmful interference to other services, for example, and the FCC approval is supposed to indicate that it has been tested and is within acceptable limits.

That is what my flying toys are for. I am lowering the wheels on the Sky Cart and then I will get some video of it.

I just finished lowering and stiffening up the suspension on my rc Carr

Trying to get some rc car drifting videos

Also been to two oval tracks that people run around to drive the car around

I put fpv camera on car
Video looks just like real car driving around the oval and drifting a bit
Reason I lowered car was to get better drifting and high speeds

I got to listen to my girls' teachers tell me how well they're both doing! Two more years of high school and my baby is off to college!!!!! Man do I feel old!
bummer on the flights but that is outstanding news on the daughters you must be very prod indeed.

That's always awesome fun David

Wayne those planes look like a blast for sure that flip flop is a riot, the pizza box flys so stabile and nice and does some nice little cork screw manuevers, that candy corn harriers awesome too, and also looks very stabile, for added effect you should catch it in your teeth lol loved the slow mo effect on the last landing

O snowy I am so sorry and glad at the same time.
Of course you knew just how well your girls were and are doing.
But those poor planes just waiting for you.
O how the clock ticks so slowly.

Boy the posting has been slow this morning.
Now I got my sensor for the Green Machine but the weather is not going to cooperate this weekend I feel.
So it may just be a work on aero plane weekend

What happens when a Morning Radio Show ask you to bring a 104 inch airplane to a Morning Zoo? Shenanigans!

What happens when you have the DJ "hold the tail on a plane with a DA120 in 50 degree weather? Fun Facial Expression!

Such Fun

I had several small clips, and this was just the one we set the DJ up with. Doing a live radio interview in State College PA was not on my bucket list by any means but it was not as bad as I thought. My wife <and another club member> both said I did fine.

There was a couch at the station doing an interview and he wants a demo done in the Bryce Jordan Center during one of their games. It is the Dream or all RC people in the area to fly in the BJC and it looks like Arron shall grab that honor.

We met with the Spikes again, they have an indoor event and tossed us the 2013 schedule 200+ days in advance and want some dates filled in for huckin in the stadium, static displays all over the place during the games.

Its getting interesting.
