  • Got five flights in on the 1600 mm Spitfire and three in on the FMS 1400mm P-51D. So much success with the Spitty now, learning to love her!

        Outstanding video and beautiful flight, you lucky dog.:Cool: Couldn't go flying cause I had to be with all the family, non of whom understands the "call of flight", had to look at baby pictures and play with baby nieces and such all day.:Angry: The only saving grace was that it has been raining here every day for the last week and a half and couldn't have gone anyway :Rainning:. Need a quick hurricane to blow this stuff away for a while :Ligthbulb:. Got batteries all charged up and 10 birds on the flight deck waiting to get in the truck but haven't got clearance from the air boss (this time the weather boss, and not the wifey) :Angry:

          • Happy Fathers day to all the fathers on here. I got up at 5 am this morning as usual for me and charged up some batteries, wasn't sure what I felt like flying so afer several minutes of :Confused: I decided on the Eurofighter and the Mig 21, forgot to take a picture of the Euro. 12 batteries later two things happened, finally my right retract on the Euro pulled out but some how stayed in position, I could see something wasn't right in the air on the last flight, the gear door on the left retract was hanging open a little bit, I fixed the right one two yrs ago and the left one was nice and snug but today that monkey glue they use finally gave up and it don't matter how softly you land, after 3 yrs the gear on the Euro will come loose. Now the Mig was all good but on the last flight also I noticed one of the gear doors was dangling, lost one of those tiny screws is all, but no mishaps or anything like that, not a scratch on either one.:Whew: Turned out to be a great morning to fly and then is was off to Church with the family.......:Cool:

                  • The little thang checked out real fine with her 4S upgrade / 60 amp ESC/ and 12 x 8.5 prop. Finished up some more graphics and will put her up for sale. She rolls, loops and spins nicely. A quiet airframe also, no loud vibrations on this bird. I like em’ quiet - only hear the prop and motor.

                      Great to hear Lon. I was pleased to see you win that bird, I knew you'd like it. Been having nothing but success with mine lately. She's showing some of her damage but nothing major and I'm hoping to get my hands on another maybe next year.

                                    • Took my CZ Cessna, Pandora, Tcat,& B-26 to fly today all flew great except for the B-26. It acted like it was tail heavy but I checked the balance before taking it up. it took a nose dive busting the nose off. I have no plans on rebuilding it. Click image for larger version

                                        Ugh. Sorry to hear that.
                                        Does not look too bad, considering.
                                        We have a school program that uses donations to get kids interested in aviation, I.e. busted models which club members make airworthy and donations from member or non member families who need to downsize or move on.
                                        could it be resurrected?

                                          Sorry for your loss MB. This always sucks. I might be thinning my heard in a bit, but I try to fly them until they start having serious problems.
