Every time i see one of your vids i promise myself a AMR. I might just have to pull the trigger this time..... But then the purple addy x looks fantastic.

Really appreciate the effort you put in, it really shows.....
Thank you Yes, the intro was shot on one of my flights between Anchorage and Chicago. Sweet memories because I have changed jobs and I am now on a different aircraft type. The one in the video was a MD-11 - fabulous aircraft. And in many ways more advanced and with a better flight guidance system than the overhyped Airbus A330 I am flying now. But the Bean Counters like the Airbus better...

The AMR is a very special aircraft. It can be flown extremely slow with a super stable upright harrier but on the other hand tumbles like no other plane. KE Spins are extremely violent

The AddiX is a different animal but at our flying site we usually have lots of fun with it - it is our "nonsense 3D in your face" plane. And we mean that literally

I think with both planes you can have lots of fun - especially if the group you are flying with is likeminded.

You could always mount a wheel on the end of the wing tube to smooth out the landings. Great vid.

I remember you have an Addiction with LEDs in them...I'm sure it would have made for some awesome footage as well and I'm sure BT would agree too
Thanks, its in the hanger over summer having some sort of lights fitted to the tail, not thought of anything yet, best hurry up its nearly the longest day, its down hill from here!!!

I was going to get another addy but this one still flies great with the added weight of the lights. AMR it is i think, it will fit nicely in my boot. Now which colour flies the best!!!!!!

Since you are from Manchester, there are 11 immediate job vacancies in Malaysia at the moment. Our National soccer team sucks big time.




@jetinteriorguy,

Yup someone did mention that the other day. In any case, I would likely use a broken CF wing tube on the next attempt.

Oh yeah, you might start a new trend. Flying with half a wing. Wonder how ke loops would go.
