It's such a nice field it's hard to fly anywhere else, especially since I live so close. I got in touch with the owner today and he'll be getting it back with his name on it.

Found it finally

This one was the toughest to find once I was on the ground, but also the most rewarding. There is no damage to the plane, other than a completely discharged lipo. I flew it the next day! From the...

I have a few more planes to find far out into some extremely tall reeds. It's tough to see stuff in there from an angle so I have re-mounted the camera pointing straight down on a MPX Acromaster. The...

3 more found!

My shortest maiden was a Multiplex Microjet. I gave it a good toss and it went straight down into the weeds. It took maybe 1 second. No damage. The next few attempts were progressively better. I...

Lost and Found

I've posted a similar thread in RCGroups, but I wanted to share some cool stuff here too. About a week ago I lost a Funjet to radio interference. The fields surrounding our runway are extremely thick...

Whew! This thing was a handful with the 2700kv on 4s. I put a 5.25x5.25 on it and launched at full throttle (like I'm used to) and the plane rolled left inverted before my hand got back to the...

I melted the wires in a 3600 kv on 3s, now I'm using a 3850kv heli outrunner. Everything is good so far. The 2700kv on 4s should run about as fast as the 3850kv on 3s but with fewer amps, so...

I'm only using 3 cells, since I have so many around, between 3300-3700. I have some 3700 mAh rhinos and they are great.

Yes, both V2s. Both 5mm shafts. Don't recall the amps exactly, but I usually hit ~1900 watts on 9s in static tests with fresh batts, so should be around 55-60 amps. The 36-60-1300 is a great motor...
