Has Nick hooked you up with any O.S. decals yet?

I woudln't say I've wasted it because I've had a blast and I'm able to sell most of my used stuff anyway but it would've been much more efficient if I had just gone down the right path from the beginning.

But it's also hard as a beginner to wrap your brain around investing in something other than a new plane. Who wants to spend $500 on a charging setup when you can just buy a new plane with that money??

I hated spending the money for a Venom Pro ($110) 50W charger a few years back. Then I moved to a Turnigy 50Wx4 charger -- yeah $100 well spent at the time. Then moved to a 400W charger, but even that wasn't enough once I got more into parallel charging. I finally just bit the bullet and cashed in on a PL8 charger. I figured with the ability to upgrade the firmware on a constant basis, it should be the last charger I need. Being able to charge my batteries in less time than it takes me to get my planes loaded and ready to go makes it really nice!

couple things...

1) someday......

2) watch the vid again with the mentality that the red is painted on to an aluminum airframe......the way the motor sounds in the vid, it sounds like an engine resonating through an aluminum airframe

3) someday..........I will fly like the Arron

Dude... Absolutely awesome. I loved it. The whole thing was awesome but a few things that stuck out to me (in all their awesomeness):

The TIGHT KE Spins. I can sometimes do this but not always. SWEET!
Rollers. Nuff said. Dayamn!!!
Slow roll. Drool.
Weeble woobles
Those hover exit maneuvers were sweet

I could go on but suffice it to say that was awesome.

I'm not confident that I'll ever fly as well as you but I'm confident that I'll never quit trying as long as I'm having fun along the way. Thanks for the inspiration and keep 'em coming man!!

ok, so after some hard flying of the 70" Slick, I noticed the my elevator hinges are a bit loose. What is the best way to redo the hinges? Of course I can't take the elevator all the way off because of the rudder.

Cut them flush, drill holes next to them. Use slow epoxy to install new ones. It can be done....don't ask why I had to do it....just know that it can be done....
