Nice! Sorry for the wreck but great coverage and doesn't look like it caused any permanent damage.

What motor/prop are you using? "My daughter's" EZ* is still stock..

Thanks, Andy!

No permanent damage... After repairing the model, I continued giving FPV video rides for the rest of the week.

I'm really glad the midair was recorded on video, so I could post it!

I'm flying with a BP Hobbies 2200kv, 2212-6 motor, with a 6x3 APC prop, on a 2200mah 3S Lipo...

I flew with the stock EasyStar motors & props for the first couple of years on my three EasyStars... stock power system flies great on 2S Lipos...

Thanks, Buddy!

As long as the crash is on video, it's all good!

It was great to see you at SEFF!

What about the wheels? What about the wheels? Can you take off from grass with those? If so, can you tell me the diameter and possibly part number?

P.S.: Nice video. Love the parts flying around in slow motion!

Thanks, Guys!

The wheels are 4" diameter GWS Slow Stick wheels... and they are great for ROG (rise off ground) takeoffs on short grass, like at Mac Hodges' field!

One place to buy these wheels: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXHHZ7&P=7

A post about the wheels on my EasyStars... https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...postcount=1542

The EasyStar is my favorite model, and I like it even better with wheels.
