Well, club meeting day. Hot dogs and stuff.

Put one flight on the YAK, two on the Funjet, and one on the Twister jet.

The Corsair did not maiden. The gear would not go up and I left four screws out holding the aileron servos. I will fix it tonight and try again tomorrow.

Short Funjet Ultra Flight (2 min 13 sec)

Corsair is all better now. Had to replace the extention from the receiver. Either the ground or the signal wire was intermittent. Should all be good now.

Great video dave.
Snow how's the fishing up there, I'm still dreaming of eating some apple smoked walleye.
I got my MX fixed again, I hope it stays fixed, i'd like to get the twist fixed sooner or later.
I don't know if I'm going to get any flying in today or not, I've got to go sell a dog today but hopefully this evening I can get a few guys together.
Waldo we need a flight report.

David22.....that was awesome to watch! I'd love to see the equipment/plane that you use. Thank you!

Kerwin....I haven't been fishing for some time, although I might take the boat out this coming weekend and take a few walleye home to put in the smoker. How have you been? How about a few pics of you and what you're flyin' lately?

Waldo, I agree with Kerwin........a flying report would be nice. Have you been building anything lately? I'd wager that NoMatta has been busy building....that man is a marvel.

Does 2HI2C ever show up any more?

One of my daughters asked me just last night....."Dad, why don't you fly your airplanes anymore?" Well, I thought long and hard about that one and replied: Honey, I don't have anyone to fly with....and it's so much more fun to fly with people and to have someone watch your back when you're in the air. To me flying was never a solitary hobby.


Hey, I'm heading to Lower Michigan in a little over a week.......anyone know of a club that I could stop in on and watch some flying? Destination Farmington Hills MI. Thanks.

Anyone here heard about 3D printing before? When they can 3D print a 50cc r/c plane, then I'll be interested! Still, this is kinda cool.

Wayne, yeah, that engine would pull a T__T60 or even a T__T 150 real good. If you have an extra one laying around, send it my way!

If you want realistic sound for your electric planes, check out these links:

There is a thread on RCG about 3D printing, I think it was being done abroad. Should be a interesting buzz word for a while.
