I've got a question...how do I post images? I always have trouble because my image size is too big. Currently I have my pictures in the gallery, is there any way to link it to there? Thanks!

I don't think my pilot likes me...managed to make him do some freefall jumps yesterday at the field...haha. This plane really makes me feel like a better pilot. I was already throwing the plane around on my 3rd flight. The first pilot "ejection" happened when I did several fast outside loops. The second "jump" happened when I decided to dog-fight my friend's easystar and ended with a mid-air collision. You can imagine what went thru my mind when it hit and stuff came flying off my plane. I was already prepared for the worst, but when the plane landed I found a missing prop as well as pilot...haha.

Anyway, most of you must be curious why my cockpit has been falling off. I did a mod which I saw somewhere on the forum where the cockpit hooks onto the front of the plane with some wood, and the magnet is located at the back of the cockpit. Perfect mod...I think I didn't secure it properly which is why it came off during the outside loops.

Wow Amazing planes guys I was all set to go out and buy a SB sport and Then I went out for a glow little flying session and fell in love again ( since last weekend with the power of gas, runtimes, and easy refill and go factor. Plus then I would need a big ole brushless to power it like a gasser then I would have the price of a gasser in something with only a 37 inch wing span. I really wanted a Switchback but Now I'm stuck. Get another gasser or get a switchback and leave it stock... What is a man to do...? Neways This thread was fallin back a little too far for having 35 pages in the first one.

Yeah, I know why it's falling off, your pilot knows you're crazy and he's trying to bail out before you kill him !.

Haha....I agree. I have already promised him a higher salary as well as potential new planes to fly in the near future So now I doubt he'll bail unless I try something crazy again.
