Indoor Arena Flying with the M-A-E 'Slick'

This was my first time flying indoors or inside an arena for that matter. I flew the 'Slick', its a 5 oz cd-rom powered 3D foamie. I had the smallest 3D plane there and it was truley cool to get in a hover formation with all the big planes. One thing is for sure, when I lose orientation and the plane hits the big deal. But the bigger planes would do the same and pieces would break. I used a 2 cell 460mah lipo that worked perfectly (10 min flights)...I replaced the heavier 700 mah battery and it really showed by the weight loss.

heres a short 10 meg video my buddy shot while I flew. Sorry if it bores you with the hovering...I had not flown this plane in awhile and needed to practice.
