    Nothing but wind and rain on the way so I was happy to get the itch out of the way.I really wish this guy would cut the stupid dried up beans down already :mad:.

  4. Had that where I plopped them down and the stem would go right through the wing. ;)

    I got a small slice on the top right intake on the first landing comeing in foward so after that I new what to do.All my other planes land comeing in with some foward motion so they would get ripped up,they're just going to have to wait.

    Took out the Su-27 V5. Had a lot of fun for 1.5 batteries before a CFIT incident. Cracked the wingplate and some nose damage but shouldn't take too much to fix it up.

    Little slow motion in there. Because if you are going to defy physics you better do it in slow motion.

     
  7. All that stunt flying which was awesome but I don't understand the easy crash???? ;)

    Took my T-50v1 for a spin today. VERY WINDY though. Did an accidental barrel roll on takeoff and did some maneuvers I've never seen before

  12. Well weather today was 3 degrees on the plus side and wind around 15k, almost tropical :)

    The new Harley Speedster Combat Jet had it's debut. 4 flights later and the new Harley Speedster Combat Jet is dialed in pretty good and should be a contender . Started off a tad nose heavy and throws I had tuned down quite a bit , slowly moved the battery back and adjusted the throws up and it flies like the Baron now and will do almost anything you want it to.
    4th flight is where it is dialed in good, still could move the battery back a hair but with an added streamer it might balance perfectly.









    Also had out the new PI A-10 proto type plane, what a joy to fly, super stable , just handles like a dream. Second video I even tried inverted and even though the rolls are not super quick it flies inverted no problem with excellent pitch control. .

    It was so quiet and fast I assumed as much. I could also see the prop turning slower than a 2200 Kvp. I immediately ordered on Ebay your set up minus the Turnigy 2826. It certainly has a "tight" roll.......if I tried that I would probably fall down!!ha! chas

  16. This would fly with the 2200kv motor no problem, the bigger the prop the easier to cut someone's streamer ;). The initial throws for pitch and roll were very mild but still flew good but in combat you need agility and quick response.

  18. Well today was sort of a sad and cold day today to fly. An older club member is in palliative care and one of his final wishes was to come out to the field and see some planes fly.

    Took out the new PI A10, cut the flight short after what I think was the servos starting to freeze up but landed smooth as silk. Also took out the new Harley Speedster Combat Jet, thing flies just beautiful.

    This F-22 modified wing foil tamed the F-22 to almost a "glider". It would just float when the power was cut but still allowed all out speed when needed. It seemed to be the best of 2 worlds flying. First it was a casual easy to fly plane for the beginner but was still aerobatic enough to satisfy seasoned fliers. It was a lot of fun and the wing turned out to be a happy surprise!! chas Ps the time stamp is not accurate..my video camera was not set with the proper date and time (today is 11-27-18)
