I think I'll venture out on Sat or Sun. No 87" SHP tho, it's down until I can figure out what the heck to do with the muffler. It won't stay on for more than 4 flights and I'm sick and tired of it, I may try a canister since I can lockwire a header pipe. I want to test out my FPV plane somewhere with more interesting scenery.

Come on out Sat. probably more to see. We had some FPVers out a couple weeks ago. Weather should = awesome
I'll ask Ted again what he used on the DA50, it's not coming off.

The GS got crazy though as folks just started doing "I'll take #x" replies over and over before the item even posted just hoping they would get something. At least two people won something that way. Earlier in the GS some folks were first to reply but passed saying the "accidentally hit the button". I think they were just replying when they saw something posted before even reading it. I think one person got like 4 items as well. I know in the last GS someone who never posts in the 3DHS threads got 4 or 5 items. It really is taking away from the spirit of the GS.

Kevin, did you get my email about trying a 9x4.7 prop with the Motrofly and 500mAh 2S? It's working really well for me.

Saw the email. I think that may be the prop Ben or Ted were running which I borrowed once for a few flights.... not 100% sure though.

Phil and I made it out Sat.
They had about 6 different food trucks this year. We had some awesome
cheesesteaks from a little old lady
Jesky duped us again,didn't fly the freestyle,bummer. Matt Stringer
flew a 104 electric slick though. Seemed most of the guys were taking it
easy on the first round of freestyle, except Spencer and Ryan threw down
some sweet flights. Didn't see any crashes either.
All in all a good time
