Flying Today & Set-up My New Slash Ultimate
I went to the flying field today. I flew my PZ P-51 Mustang ad PZP-47 Elsie. But the real highlight of the day was assisting fellow cub member Duncan with his 1/3 scale Waco Bi-Plane! This thing was gorgeous! It's powered by a Moki 250cc, 5 cylinder radial engine (I believe). It sounded amazing! It looked beautiful in the air. I was using Duncan's camera as such did not get my own pictures in the air
Pre oiling the push rods and rockers
Took about 1.5 hours of prep time
Later in the evening my daughter came back form Edmonton with a new toy for me... How did she know?
Its a Traxxas Slash Ultimate Edition 4x4, just what I needed! While nice, it's unfortunate it came in the same body theme as my buddy I want to go run with. It was all they had in stock, so I may have to go get a body ASAP, and then another one to paint I have some ROAR approved 5300mah 70c packs that I made a few Traxxas connector to Deans adapters for so I should be good to go tomorrow!
The Ultimate Edition comes with some nice Aluminum upgrades
Here it is all new and shiny, this will be the last time it looks like this again
I had to make a Traxxas to Deans Connector for charging to use the Traxxas Lipo
Here it is in my little shop of horrors
Another new clean shot
Charging the Traxxas pack
The Traxxas Link and Telemetry using an IPhone
I was disappointed the drive hubs were not aluminum too...
Thanks for looking and reading!
