Fly Cheap. Fly Hard. Fly Daily
UFOs on the front page of today:

Nice work Now if there was some way to have the model airplane carry a marquee saying "I'm a model airplane", that would be helpful for the people calling 911...

Yeah- apparently somebody, somewhere understands that these are electric RC aircraft and are neither a threat to public safety or national security. I have never seen any 911 responder at any of our night events or whenever I'm out flying alone (or news reporter either).

I haven't seen any fighter jets scrambled to check us out either. hmmm- unless it was the new alien technology enabled super stealthy aircaft dispatched from Area 51...

Let the faithful continue to believe in coverups and conspiracies. Just let us keep flying our little planes in peace

Yes, it is controlled by the transmitter. It's made by a guy named Aaron. I have some of his flyers at home. I'll pass along the info when I get home.

Oh and to set the record straight. Thats not my video. I think it was Aaron's (not the same one that does the led boards but another Aaron).

Looks like it. One of the guys up here (Todd) just bought one and is checking it out. I'm sure he will post his results once he gets it working.

He's doing a full production run right now, and is aiming for about $50 initially, then lower once he gets some sales going to offset his investment.

I bought one of his pre-production prototype units for a little less.

You can get a similar unit at LowPriceRC , but it's simpler, only has 3 channels instead of 4, and isn't controlled by your transmitter. But it's only $15, so it's still a great option.

BTW, HobbyKing just released a new series of high density LED strips that have twice as many LED's per meter! Those suckers would be the BOMB!

I'm gonna grab some on my next HK order.

Anybody know where that SWARMING software was that automatically completes swarms for you?
