It will be loved during it's inevitably short lifespan.

Two more Ammo Inrunners ordered today from Tower. After all I had to order three 30mm Hyperflow fans when they were back ordered to get any, so each now has a proper powerplant to drive it.

Now what to make when I have a bit of spare time? I am loving the lightweight setup these units provide, and yes in my book efficient for their output. It was only money...

Wifey got a salad shooter, and her Weekly In-Touch Magazine, so I'd say we are even.

BTW, my oldest has shoes that big too. Lucky he moved away and pays for his own food now. I think if we meet I'll call you Sir, and we will go Dutch treat on the snacks and beer!

Those shoes are nothing!
(Guess we Dutchies just have big feet over here, probably caused by generations of these things: )

That is a really big shoe! When I said Dutch treat, that's not what I meant. Hope that shoe doesn't belong to your mother-in-law! LOL

Been thinking, even though HH is coming out with a MiG soon ( ), I would love to see Great Planes make their own to compliment this Sabre. They would be even matched like the real ones were and seems only fitting to have a contemporary in a series. (Hint, hint).

Now you went and did it, landed on and killed the Jolly Green Giant. Now who's going to make all them canned vegetables for us. I've heard of sleeping on it, but not sleeping with it? LOL! You must not be married because my wifey wouldn't put up with that (when she's home)

Not sure if this question has been answered yet (I didn't see it in a search), but with HH now offering the as3x as a stand-alone programmable rx/esc combo are any of you planning to try it out in this F-86? Been reading about the un-controlled pitch issues, has that been fully taking care of with the CG placement and does anyone think the as3x will help prevent that from occurring? After using the system in my mqx and mcp-x v2, I am truly a huge fan of it! I like this F-86, but with recent high winds in the area I would be timid to fly this little guy without use of such system, I know my mqx doesn't care at all about the winds lol... Once again sorry if these points have been addressed. Thanks is advance!

Flying with the correct CG helps a lot to control the pitch ups.... I'm waiting to see how the MIG flies first before changing the Sabre..

If it's anything like I've experienced with the mcpx and the mqx it should awesome. I seen the comparison vids of the v1 beast w/o it and the v2 beast w/ it and it seemed to be a HUGE difference but I haven't flown any of those to date so wouldn't know from experience just what I've seen. It should be interesting that's for sure. I know I have the Mig pre-ordered and that system alone is why I chose it over this model. Really eager to see if anyone attempts it on this bird when the unit becomes available.

Not to derail the topic of Sabres, but it looks like I will be the only one removing the Mig's AS3X system and putting a normal rxer in it to see how it goes without the stabilisation. I got silence when I asked on the HH thread if any of the staff had done this to compare the performance with and without it... probably never crossed their minds to try it...

I'm still waiting for the last test I want to do with the Sabre - fly indoors. I found out they fly on a Friday morning at one of the venues and only allow true micro's - no big 3D shockie kamikaze pilots allowed, so if I can get down there in a few days time, I'll see if I can do a double basket ball hall flight.

I have pulled several stranded models from the tops of trees, but never from a basketball goal. Good luck, and may the force be with you.
