SUPERSPORT 04-19-2008 08:10 PM

I waited on the wind to die down. As soon as I stepped outside it started raining. The downpour is over but it's still sprinkling.

Make sure you feed them a balanced diet of the 3 main food groups. Cheesebugers, Frenchfrys, and pizza.

WWI Ace 04-20-2008 05:48 PM

You guys are SO helpful!! Chili gives me gas too Murph!! The boys too!! Thats why we are going to have homemade chili while she is GONE. We're not allowed to fix it when she is home!!! Ha ha!!! Steve

Biplane Murphy 04-20-2008 07:52 PM

Well.......Now it is so windy here right now, it feels like a 24 hour a day hurricane.:( News said up to 50 MPH winds...

I wanted to go out to the local Club today with my bigger planes....but instead I am being taken to the "Poppy Festival"....:roll:

So ....No Flying and No Building for me today....

FlyingMonkey 04-20-2008 08:41 PM

Have any hills near you? Maybe it's time to take up slope flying. I wonder if there are any biplane slope gliders.

Yes I am indeed just a few miles from some good sized hills.....I bet I could find a good slope to fly off of.

Also I am thinking of buying a Kite....I saw a DR1 Kite at the hobby shop...hahhaahha

FlyingMonkey 04-20-2008 08:45 PM

some slope gliders...

I seen part of it. I'd just come in after a long day of flying. I turned on the TV and it was a Dr1 and a few SE5s.

All day we chased each other around with my SE5a and his Dr1.:D

I hit record on the DVR.

FlyingMonkey 04-21-2008 11:56 AM

or you could just buy it for $1.99 on itunes.

Geoffrito 04-21-2008 01:16 PM

dogfights is a great show... i have a 'collection' in my magic tv dvr box thingy =)

FlyingMonkey 04-21-2008 01:57 PM

I have started downloading battle 360

it seems to be an entire series about the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise in WWII. still worth watching though.

WWI Ace 04-22-2008 01:13 AM

I don't think my wife will give up her house for planes as big as that Albatros!!! Steve

WWI Ace 05-03-2008 04:30 PM

Well Mom is home again and I was on jury duty monday through wednesday. It was a LONG week!!! Things should get "back to normal" now. Steve

SUPERSPORT 05-03-2008 06:03 PM

What kind of case?:eek:

WWI Ace 05-03-2008 07:00 PM

43 year old guy getting 30 years for Aggravated Sexual Assault and Indecency With a child. The girl was his cousin and she was 10!!! Steve

Cookie 05-03-2008 07:44 PM

I'm sure he was just a poor misunderstood soul. Castration maybe? He'll be real popular with the other inmates who were molested as children.

WWI Ace 05-03-2008 09:51 PM

That's the way his lawyer tried to play it but we weren't buying it!! Steve

scalercflyer 05-04-2008 12:34 AM

Hang him
 
I think they should publicly hang him. Or perhaps drawn and quartered. Whatever the punishment, it wasn't enough. Martin

Agreed....but I vote for "Drawn and Quartered"....:mad:

FlyingMonkey 05-04-2008 02:08 AM

I bought a Great Planes DVII at SEFF.

I haven't crashed it yet....

I love mine Fred.:tc:

I have had it since they first released them, and have put countless flights on it.:)

FlyingMonkey 05-04-2008 02:30 AM

Have you done anything to dress it up?

Biplane Murphy 05-04-2008 02:39 AM

I cut Obi-Wan Kenobi in half.....glued the top half in my SE5A, and the bottom half upside down "feet up" in the Fokker DVII...HAHAHAHHAHA

The only other things I did to it was install an E-Flite 480 in her with a 40amp ESC and a 2100mah 3s Thunder Power Lipo....:)

And increased the throws on all of the control surfaces to as far as they would physically travel.....

That's pretty much it.

FlyingMonkey 05-04-2008 02:41 AM

I meant to make it MORE scale, not less :D

Oh....I thought you wanted to know how I souped it up way beyond scale, almost to the point of 3D....:):tc::D:Q;-):$;):cool:

FlyingMonkey 05-04-2008 05:04 AM

ugh...

Tonight I painted the engine part of the battery cover black, as well as the front screen.

I also have nearly covered the plane in a matte finish. I brushed it on in a cross weave pattern, so now it looks like cloth.
