  • The amount of hours you have on the sticks must be amazing! Just it SHOULD start to feel natural. Getting grooves in your palms and fingers!!

    • Got to maiden my FW Mirage yesterday. She flew awesome, she rolls fast! I brought out my FW 70mm F16 as well. My uncle brought out his RC Lander F16, FW 64mm A10, and HK Vampire.

      • It is a good feeling when you just correct something without thought. The funny thing is, you do not realize it at the time!It is only after you land, and sometimes when you are having a break that it hits you.
        I will be heading out to my home field in the morning with my FMS Shangri La P51D.
        Looks like being a hot day 38*C + but I will take the extra chance I am getting with a four day week. [twelve hour day to get it]
        It will be a three litre day for water.
        Regards and respect

              Thanks! Starting to get her dialed in...I really lucked out with decent weather this past weekend. Doesn't come around often this time of year trust me.

                Have you changed the setup from your last one?

                • The only thing different so far is I removed the on-board stock gyro and replaced it with the Cortex. Still dialing her in but so far I am very impressed with the Cortex.

                    • Yeah you really don't need to. With where you fly (compared to my industrial area) I would be a lot more comfortable without a gyro...

                        So you're still running the same rates and expo you sent me before?

                        • If I sent you the rates and expo from my first one then I am definitely using different throws and rates. My expo is down to 15% instead of 40%. Too much slop and definitely contributed to my stress flying the first one. Do you fly Spektrum? If so I can send you my file...

                                  • Second that, rain and more rain to the central states. Its not that cold anymore so was able to do some required maintenance and tuning, electric and glow, cycling the lipo batteries to their storage state.
                                    Flew the Sbach w its new Leopard motor, but had some thrust issues, at least was able to land it safely.

                                    • An unexpected cold but sunny Sunday meant I could get 3 flights on my A10, 3 on my wots wot biplane and discovered my new prop for the mustang was heavily out of balance...doh! Should have checked that before I left! Never mind.

                                          I guess this means that "annihilator" is gonna have to meet the "Macerator" @ NEFI
