Thanks, Im not a big fan of profile crap either. How do you plan on building it? The Sbach has some tricky curves.

I'll try to get some decent footage of my p51 tomorrow too

@ everyone else: Should we give him some HOF points for this effort, despite not being a micro

I would happily give points but I don't know what "HOF" means

(but dont worry, its one of the things I dislike most about the new social interactive communication, that everything HAS to be expressed in acronyms ...

... nobody got time to speak complete sentences anymore ...

How beautiful were the times when I was a little kid

Thank you my friend, this is the second time you have come to my rescue over these acronyms.

I doubt you will remember the first one but it was the "BOL" heli and no one ever wrote BOL out fully, so I eventully had to ask and you eased my tormented mind

Thank you - John.

You lads think HOF is bad, I needed 2 weeks training at Microsoft Online Services (MSOS ) to learn all of their acronyms

I generally try to make an effort to be grammatically correct, and avoid teeny bopper acronyms. I guess I will be more diligent about it in the future

Yeah, I'm up for that. I want to keep the HOF though (oops, I mean Hall of Fame, lol, shite, laughing out loud ). Maybe we can still keep some challenges for those who like them, but have the main focus on showing off your skills and racking up HOF points (argh!! I did it again )

Any suggestions would be welcome guys.

Here's a vid of my P-51 Mustang. Remember Im a begginer though, and I apologise in advance for the plane not being in the frame at times. It may have been my 3rd time flying, but it was my first time using a pair of $10 sunglasses with a built in DVR (digital video recorder). I think I will super glue some cigarette filters to where they rest on my ears to angle it down a bit next time, but all in all it is pretty good quality considering the price

Parkzone p 51 Mustang 2nd flight (6 min 58 sec)


Here's what happened the first time I flew her....




... and this is what resulted from my second time flying.



.... At this rate Im too scared to fly her a third time

Well, I'll have to give you an Oooh and an Ahh for that - I wasn't pulling inverted flight on the 2nd or third flight on my mustang, and a battery dropping out and screwing up the COG is a quick recipe for disaster - nice recovery!

all done with a hobbyzone champ. Disregard the background noise from my kid. I actually got it to fly upside down a couple times, nothing to far tho
