Hey Jo
You will be pleased to know that your old Lynx is in the same old condition as when you had it ,I've never crashed it not even put a scratch on it
Great to see your new strip in the clip and the big bird flowen again
500 fights for any aircraft is a great achievement, especially when most pilots said it wouldn't make it off the ground Congrats mate

But I always said it would fly better with gimballs on the TX,food for thought

Good to hear, I thought I would see you today in Coffs, "Scale weekend", crap windy conditions had only one flight and rather went to my old beach for a swim. See the new pilots's pit, fancy, isn't it?

It was promoted even in MAS, BTW, make sure you turn that 160 ones in a while and rotate the carby to avoid getting seized. What's KAOS?

Warialda, long time no hear! Mate I build my models to out-live me! This one is just under "700" flying sessions now! No old pics or videos, all latest and current the day I post it. LOL.
Today flew 3 jets in home club, I haven't seen the strip in such a crap conditions since I joined the club 18Y ago! It was in different shape when I was the "Master Groundsman", you may remember.
Anyway, I took off today with each model down wind after watching airliners doing the same thing last night from Coffs, probly to safe on fuel. Cheers.
"BBB" in action last week.
