I was gone for a while, but I'm all better now

I got side-tracked by the slowflier forum.
After having so much fun with my zagis, I wandered into the slowflier forum and bought a litestik... uggh.
It was so boring I embarked on a mission to find the perfect slowflier.
After 4 or five different planes and numerous scratch-built slow/fun-fliers and tons of $$ in micro gear and stuff, I thought I was actually having fun. Even the best of them can barely get out of their own way.
Today I decided to dust off the zagi x, throw it in the truck and go to the field.
It's been months, I had forgotten how awesome these things zoom around!

The only slowflier that I've gotten any thrill out of was my IFO. You can even fly it like a zagi, in a way, kick it on its side and yank the stick back.

Me thinks slow flyers are cool but only if they perform like my Lil Hornet.
Still, the faster stuff needs BIG fields and TIME to get there.

The slow stuff flies in my front yard. They are great for a quick "fix"

Then/again my Husky is nice and slow. Sometimes it is just fun to do fly- byes past my head and do touch and gos on a baseball dymond.

There is something about watching any plane gracefully floating by.
