Consecutive huge, round loops. No problem! And as AP mentioned - she's easy to belly-land. I just bring her in nose-high, manage airspeed with elevator & descent-rate with throttle, and drop her right at my feet.

Almost in middle of Europe. The disadvantage is that is not possible to use gloves for me, becouse of sensitivity in fingers, but the sensitivity is loosing anyway becouse of freeze. I like it, i have to wear batteries on my chest and quicly connect in the model and fire up with engine or AS3X. I could reach 3min with the stock battery and I didn`t touch LVC, becouse of reserve for landing, I made a approach and than on second landed with bump a little bit, but was so happy. It looks so real.

HI Pepo - you should buy gloves and cut the tips off of the main finger & thumb. That way most of your hand stays warm, but your finger tips can still feel the control sticks.

I have pop-top gloves like those.

Use 'em for winter biking, as well as RC flying.

It'd be nice to find some that include the thumb in the pop-top.....be able to uncover the thumb for working the sticks, and then cover it for warmth.

Get ready, if all goes well I will be officially "in the hunt" in the next 2 weeks. (Gone out of town for all of next week so that is going to slow things down.)

Anyone got any more video to upload yet? (Oh, WWU, I was laughing with a flying buddy about how the LAST contest you started cost me a ton in parts! It's ok though, got some great crash footage for my 2012 Crash Compilation Video on my YouTube Channel! )

Fish - VERY much looking forward to it! Contest entries are a bit slow right now, but with the weather we're having, I can understand it. What's up with all the wind and white stuff????

I might have to make another entry just to "prime the pump" a bit. I think Kevin owes us a few more attempts . . . .


EDIT - I just watched your vid - that was well done (the editing, not the crashes). Hate to see the damage, but good to know I'm not alone in reigning in the overpopulation of model aircraft. . . .

Got my Mig delivered last week, and managed to maiden it on Sunday. First time back with a fixed wing for a few years, what an awesome plane! One small error on my part, after adjusting battery placement for COG I forgot to push it in properly against the velcro. After second turn it started porpoising badly, all because the battery had fallen out and was hanging by the lead. It was like trying to fly a rocking horse! Managed to get it low and slow and 'landed it' nose first from about 10'. No real damage to speak of.
Second flight was a lot less eventful. Going to take some time to get comfortable with this.
Had to go back to flying the 130x to relax a bit, which is funny as I got a fixed wing to have a relaxing time away for the heli's!
Looking forward to giving it another whirl this weekend if the weather in Baku plays the game.
