I love drawing clean lines..I was pattern flying mine today.. Then I slammed it into a inverted wall, drop an inverted elevator, and dragged the rudder to a hover.

Bobly,,, don't feel bad!! I'm old too,, I LOVE flying regular aerobatics with this plane,, plus some basic 3D stuff too for fun. If you Wana try 150% throws,, just increase your expo by 10-20% and then you'll have best of both worlds. :-)

No, I'd probably have a broken plane. I have enough trouble keeping up with it as it is.

Well the 150% is just for the elev and rudder not aileron the roll rate is insane just on 100%. You won't need that extra anyway unless your doing hovers or other 3D. You can do very nice sport flying with this plane on 70%.

FolkArt brand paint at WalMart. You'll find it in the craft section. The lime green is a dead ringer for the EQQ.I had posted this a while back but it got lost.

I balanced the motor on mine the other night and static I can tell quite a difference. Sunday is looking good for flying. Hope to test it out then.

I used this: http://parmapse.shptron.com/p/fasflu...ue?pp=15&pp=15

It's very thin and doesn't cover white very well. It works great for blending in and tuoching up small scratches. I used it to touch up a few areas where the factory didn't get enough paint and you would never know it was touched up.
