Lights on


Here it is to show the light flyingness glory.

I just re-maidened it with an overwhelming success. I though for sure I was going to be tail heavy. It only needed one or two clicks of down and two or three to the right. I also took out the servo savers and HS81 clones and put in new MG servos.

Yes. But I'm not sure where. We're going out for dinner, and I'm not sure where we'll end up.

I ended up in Vineyard and up a tree. This was on the 3rd or 4th pack. What a blast. I had one neighbor come out and watch. A friend came down too. They watched all five packs. I guess it was as much fun to watch as it was to fly, because they stuck around the whole time.

Once the weather warms up we need to do a club night fly.

I've never seen more than five night planes in the air at the same time.

A swarm at night would be as cool as it gets

Yeah, I'm in total agreement. Having a huge swarm of planes at night is seriously one of the coolest things I've seen in RC. I'd take that any day over some dude hovering a giant plane over the runway at a fly-in.

It's especially cool when all the planes are trying to kill each other!

Tom, are you and Jake putting lights on your combat planes?

Jake's is lit up and ready to go. He hasn't done a night maiden yet but the lights are installed under the laminate and look sweet.
I haven't done lights on mine yet but as we get into nicer weather you know I'm going to be getting the itch.

I'm doing a Secret Weapon (one of Lee's Roswell variations) that is gonna be ALL lit up...

One way or another I'll be doing some of the night combat- I can't wait for warmer weather I'm just thinking a night time Uncivil war type event would be AWEsome...

Nighttime unCIVIL war would be a blast. Maybe we should try one this summer.

It won't be long before you guys have nine or more up in the air at once.
