I've got a delima. I have move than enough money for it but, I've got another project I'm wanting to start and if I do that one I'll be out on anything else until the holidays. I just finished my H9 P-40 and dropped about $600 on it too. Decisions, decisions......

Well you could always, buy it, send it to me, and I will build and test fly it for you. Then when your ready, I can send it your way. Or since your just over flowing with wealth, you could just send me one.

That sounds great! You'd do that for me?

Sold My E-flite Deuces Wild for $600 so I've got some hobby cash.

I've sold almost every foam plane I owned except for my Stryker C, Q, and Radian Pro. I've been moving to more and more balsa models. I went from 28 planes to just 12 now. My favorite time in aviation is the golden age of air racing so this one pull at my wallet.

Glad you enjoyed the video guy's. I'm happy with the direction the video's are going but I'd be interested in hearing any suggestions (landing requests already noted ), after all, these video's are made for you ultimately. PM if you prefer, I don't want to steer the thread off topic.

Speaking of which, you'll see for yourselves soon enough how good she looks in the air. Her form and color give the model a very nice 'presence' when flying. Look forward to hearing your comments and opinions on the model when in hand.

You guys should create a standard video script.
I always want to see:
- closeups of plane & plane next to normal sized human or a transmitter to see scale
-. retracts operation closeup
- battery compartment closeup
-. takeoff - shortest
-. fastest speed low pass
- slowest speed low pass
- roll rate
- tightest turns circles & loops
- vertical climb at max speed and if she keeps it going
- normal slowest landing
- if its 3D show those maneuvers too

***also i would LOVE to always see a wind speed indicator & direction so i can get a feel for how it handles wind; and if its calm i would like a higher wind demo too

i am not a fan of the historical stuff I already know - put that in a separate video for the plane

p.s. bring out the Hughes H1 :-)

That is a stunning plane and looks so good in the air.
Can't wait for pics and flight reports.

Hope the production models will look as sweet.
