Super Video!

Leslie, it looked like you were out of Juice, is that right?

The ZERO exhibited stall at the very end...looks like the prop was wind milling on you so, I assume it was on cut off?

Nice flight anyway!!!

Hi Carlos,

No I was being a idiot and tried to cut the motor off to see how it handles in the air. I guess it doesn't handle to well.

That battery was charged 1 day before the flight, so was sitting for 1 day. The battery still had half left or more. I still had alot of power. That last sec, I was a idiot and did some stupid turning loss of coordination dumby move, but o well, it's all fun.

My next flight will be funner and more tame. I didn;t even have a chance to trim the plane at all. Casue my heart was beating so fast. ehhehe Did you like the soundtrack???

Awsome Soundtrack, my daughters are going to Love it! I am showing them the video now.....but, you know teenager girls they kind of sort of like the planes but, they rather be at the mall.....errr...... Being a Dad.......

Yes, not problem this ZERO turns you into someone else, I have done worst...HE HE HE.....My ZERO now weighs 16 3/8 oz or over a Pound !! Because of all the crashes....it has so much epoxy that this thing comes down like a frieght train for a landing and takes it. You new ZERO on the other hand is so nible and agile since it came out of the box, enjoy while it is light ! My ZERO can NOT gluide worth a hoot....I really can't turn the prop off in mid flight or this thing will drop out of the sky. Just today, I ran the batteries down to almost cut-off but, still had enough for a landing, well it was weak and the approach turn did it, it did a very slow cart wheel..... nothing broke since there's nothing else to break!

Enjoiy and again very nice video/soundtrack!

Thanks. That's funny.
My friend who helped me make the video is all into making video's. Nice of him to help me. He's got a funny sense of humor I should say...

My friend with me is av8trOC, he's up for the holidays from Orlando where he attends flight school. He has a Beaver he's going to build when he gets back. The other one taping is my friend OD.
I can't wait for my next flight. - Flying is fun.

Dent in one aileron as seen in video.
Reglued plastic wing mount.
1 of the 3 blades busted off. Have a extra prop.
The shaft got slightly bent so I straightened it nice.
Battery pushed out to front. Now has bigger airflow opening.
The cockpit is magnetic and just pops off.
All fixed with foam safe orderless Zapo CA and in 10 minutes.
Ready to fly again.

Nice plane! The music has a strong backbeat and its got an asian tune . What a nice blend of cultures . I saved this video. It makes me feel all warm inside, mainly because now I know im not the only one who does the turn-the-motor-off-and-bank-left-and-then-roll-into-ground landing
