Not that I'm aware of. But if the forecast holds for Sunday, I will probably fly at Gtrcc. If you're free, come with and we'll buzz the pattern guys.

I won't be. Would like to but have too much planned for Saturday. Have a safe trip.
BTW: It's going to be unseasonably cool for Texas this weekend.

I'm looking forward to it! I grew up in Iowa so I look forward all year to the cool Texas fall and winter to fly in. Makes up for the 106 degree days that just cook my batteries. Just hope the rain stays away. You can keep all of that that up your way!

My "Superbug" arrives


Nice job Nitro on the entire process !!! Shipped next day after a sunday p.m. online ordering so take heed BH; why do you let our orders just sit pending shipping ??? usually 3 or 4 days. Ten days from L.A. to me in Nova Scotia -not bad (best part was "no duty". I was like a kid opening the box for a quick peek after work last night; awesome detail, and NO damage at least I could see.
WOW; lots of armament and fuel "jugs" but probably as a belly lander I'd not use.
Maybe I'll magnet them on for pics and showing off but I'd imagine the drag is brutal on "stock power". All in all; I'm impressed with my Diamondback and will build during our winter. Appreciate all your insight, comments, and mods submitted by everyone. I'll continue to read this thread as I build my Hornet.

Get the CS fan and get it balanced, check jack at EDF hobbies and he'll get one machine balanced for you.

CP 480 2500kv motor and CS 10 blade fan and you can fly it on 4, 5 and 6s...

The sound is outstanding and the landings will be scale...

I have a setting on my radio for landing and really thinkin of doing flaps...

Maybe will do this on my second one...my current one is startin to look kinda ratty

Have a GREAT flight xfatdannx! You'll have a blast. I've been flying the snot out of mine. Such a great flying ship. I did have a mishap Sunday though. I was trying to get in one last flight.. and you know what that means. After proly 25 great hand launches over the past weeks I judged poorly on the toss and it went off in my hand. I stalled it and it nose dived in. Smashed the nose cone and broke the fuse in several pieces all the way back to the leading edge of the wing. I have plenty of gg on hand and it will be back in the air on Saturday. Nothin stops this plane!
