I freaking LOVE it! Thank you Rodger. The shade of gray is a stone cold match for the Velox scheme and the metal flake on the thrust tube is a nice touch. You need to come up with an Air Sally decal that I can run on the plane. Just send me a photo and I'll print it out in color and lay it up under a clear adhesive sheet. Thanks again

Sorry to hear about the loss! If you're thinking of replacing it, I've got a nearly complete one in the classifieds here if you're interested AS.

Let me know.

Sorry to Hear Rodger


Well, I know that bird was a great flying airplane. I hope that you can put the pieces back together and start again. I don't know about your electronics but if they are in good shape then maybe you can get another airframe.

Hope you can get flying again soon. Also if you have some questionable RX's you might want to get some flat foam airplanes and use them as test beds to make sure that your RX's are working as they should. If the do fail it won't hurt as bad and you will have piece of mind knowing your gear is solid.

Lost my falcon today. Prop came off during high speed pass, thought I still had prop and enough to land her on the runway when it became clear there was no power, though motor was turning. Hit tree. Everything for the most part is salvageable, though one of the wings suffered damage and the fuselage needs a lot of repair. I'm thinking of just buying another airframe.

I learned a valuable lesson; whenever there's an issue immediately land it, even if downwind. My mistake is I thought I still had some power.

Sorry for your loss Rodger, I certainly know how you feel, I lost one of mine to the trees Saturday so it's still fresh.

I got the Schubi back today, that Nacelle is awesome! Thanks for doing such a great job!
